Tips for managing your ATV on an uphill drive

Sometimes, safely navigating your all-terrain vehicle up steep slopes may be too much for your vehicle. No matter how experienced you are, some hills are too steep to climb.

A tip for someone going uphill in an ATV, especially if one is having difficulty doing so, is for the driver to keep his or her feet firmly on the vehicle’s foot rests and make sure their weight is going uphill at all times. This technique will help you avoid the possibility of the vehicle losing momentum and sliding down.

If you do start to move backwards, it is important for the driver to remember to apply the brakes and step on the parking brakes. However, the driver should remember to apply the front brakes only, because applying pressure on the back brakes can cause the vehicle to flip over.
