Today, we want to share with you the best cheap go karts for sale that the whole family can enjoy! Whether you have a teenager looking to go fast, or a little one who needs to start out slow, we found a variety of go-karts for everyone – and for every budget! Before you buy a new go-kart, there are a few important features to know about to make sure you get the right one for you! Let’s go!
Power: There are three main ways to power a child’s go-kart: pedal, electric, or gas. Pedal-powered go-karts have no engine – they power it with their feet like a bicycle! Electric motors use rechargeable batteries, and gas engines use, well, gasoline!
Weight Limit: To ensure your child can ride safely, we let you know the weight limit for each go-kart. Riding a go-kart when you’re over the weight limit is dangerous because it can cause injuries from tipping, brake failure, or engine failure.
Age Range: In addition to knowing the weight limit of your go-kart, it’s important to note the suggested age range as well. This allows you to choose a go-kart that’s age appropriate for their weight, height, and driving ability at various speeds.
Color: Finding a safe go-kart for your child based on age and ability level is our #1 priority. We also found a variety of colors and styles to make driving around fun, too! There are several options any kid will enjoy!
Dimensions: We also let you know the dimensions of each go-kart to help you find one that’s the right size for your child. You can also choose a go-kart to fit your lifestyle, especially if you are short on storage space!
Brake Type: Handbrakes work by pulling a lever on the side of the go-kart. Hydraulic brakes use brake fluid and work by pushing a pedal, just like in your car! Pedal brakes work just like regular bicycle brakes to stop tires.
Now that you know what kind of go kart you need to suit your needs, let’s find one that suits your budget, too! We found 10 go karts that are inexpensive without sacrificing safety or fun! From pedal-powered models for toddlers to gas-powered speedsters for teens, there’s something for everyone. If you’re pressed for time, no worries!
