Whether you are an off-road expert or a novice, to get the most out of your ride, it is important to have the right type of vehicle for the trip. In fact, there are more types of ATVs than you might realize.

To help you get the most of your next ATV ride, the team at Dirt Toys Magazine created the following informational list defining the various types of vehicles to ensure you have fun and stay safe.

Utility ATVs

Utility ATVs should not be used for long distance rides. Much like the name suggests, they are often used for performing tasks. As a large, powerful ATV, it is most often used for carrying heavy objects. 

Sport ATVs

If you are looking for a relaxed, long-distance ride, this is the ATV for you. With a smaller frame, a lighter body and enhanced suspension, this vehicle will help you stay comfortable no matter the distance you are traveling. Sport ATVs should be driven on trails and roads.

High-performance ATVs

If you are looking to race ATVs, this is the vehicle you should choose. These machines are designed for speed. With powerful engines, enhanced suspension and a sleek design, high-performance ATVs are also perfect for tougher rides trips like sand dunes and steep mountain trails.
