ATV Power Steering – Is It Worth It?
August 1, 2017
Tips & Advice
Riders who frequent tough terrain all attest: arm fatigue and shoulder stress are sure outcomes when riding all day on rocky trails. If you're the type to go for longer rides in bumpy terrain, power steering is something to consider.
EPS systems (Electronic Power Steering) reduce handlebar whip allowing riders to conserve energy. Crawling over rocks and through mud ruts is where EPS earns its crown.
What happens if the electric component shorts out? Steering reverts to normal (pre-power steering performance).
If you're primarily in muddy or watery terrain, power steering may not be worth the investment. We recommend power steering modifications for those who have a bumpier ride.
