If you intend to continue using your ATV throughout the winter, you might consider purchasing a set of snow tracks to use during periods of wintery weather. These tracks are designed to provide outstanding traction and performance even in the most inclement weather conditions.

Today we’re going to investigate some of the main features and benefits of ATV snow tracks so you can determine whether the investment makes sense for your own ATV usage habits. Here’s an overview of what you should know.

The features of ATV tracks

The rubber tracks themselves will usually have a very aggressive tread pattern to ensure excellent grip, even in the most slippery conditions. The tracks should be sufficiently long and wide to provide good flotation on snow and ice.

Track size should be appropriately matched with the power output from the ATV; an ATV without sufficient power for the chosen track kit will have a hard time reaching higher speeds and would experience more train.

The track features a frame that holds everything together. It needs to be strong enough to stand up to the ongoing wear and tear associated with usage and must be open so it can easily shed snow, mud, ice and other debris from the inside of the track. The front of the track is angled upwards to ensure the track will float better on soft surfaces.
