Kids love to race and an electric go-kart for kids is designed to provide the ultimate outdoor fun for children. These run on rechargeable batteries and produce no harmful fumes.
Designed to look like a racing go-kart
Electric go-karts for kids are designed to look like a real kart (that belongs on a racetrack) with their nice color scheme and streamlined body design. The foot pedal and footbrake provide a more realistic driving feel.
These have a feature adequate dual-layer impact protection, and a double braking system (footbrake and handbrake). The wheels are also designed for better off-roading capabilities, and to support higher speeds as well as for drifting.
The electric configuration
The main components of an electric go-kart are the Motor & Battery, and the only maintenance that these go-karts require is the recharging of the battery.
- Typical configurations of electric go-karts for older kids (8+ years): 250W to 1000W electric motor, 12V rechargeable battery, speed of 8 to 12 mph.
- Go-karts for smaller kids (3 to 8 years) will have less speed due to the less powerful battery.
- Depending on how fast the kart is driven (depending on the speed), the kart can run up to 20-60 minutes on a single charge.
The best electric go-karts have better wheels that are designed for drifting; these feature a hand-operated brake that helps achieve drifting at higher speeds. The steering system is also very responsive and keeps the electric go-kart under control when the child is trying to drift.
Some electric go-karts also have a Spark Bar at the rear which produces visible sparks when the child is attempting drifting with the go-kart.
Smaller Electric Go-Karts for Kids
The smaller sized electric go-karts are available for younger kids (3 to 8 years) have a smaller battery (6V) and the speed is also less (varies from 2.5,ph to 8 mph); these also feature several parental speed controls.
These go-karts are best driven on smoother surfaces as the wheels are not really designed for off-roading. The smaller electric go-karts are a great way to introduce children to racing and and drifting.
