Kids Off Road Go Kart – Coleman Powersports CK100-S
Coleman Powersports CK100-S
Today, we are going to take a look at one of our favorite kids offroad go kart by Coleman Powersports. This is a great entry level go kart that will get your child familiar with operating gas/brake pedals and will ensure that they have hours of off road fun! Coleman Powersports makes some pretty good rides designed to provide the opportunity for your kids to have loads of fun while building into the design safety and reliability.
Who is this kids off road go kart designed for?
One of the things to consider when purchasing an off-road go kart is whether or not it’s a good fit for your kid. The Coleman Powersports CK100-S is recommended for riders 13 and older. It is also recommended for a maximum rider weight of about 150 pounds. That said, this depends on a number of other things as well. One major factor to consider is whether or not your child already has experience driving go karts. Some kids under 13 may be just fine while I’ve known a few that even past the age of 13 might not be qualified to drive a kart.
Another consideration is the size of your child. Just because the age and weight recommendations are set at 13 and up to 150 pounds doesn’t mean it will fit your child. Although there are no height recommendations, this go kart can easily fit someone who is as tall as 6 feet. Keep in mind it may not be quite as comfortable. If you’ve got some of those tall genes in your family you might want to consider an off-road kart that is a little bigger. Coleman also makes one of those too, you can check out the Coleman Powersports KT196 which may be a little better fit for bigger kids.
What is the top speed of this off road go kart?
The top speed of the Coleman CK100-S is 25 mph. Top speeds often depend on a number of factors. Depending on the terrain your are riding on will have an affect on how fast you can get the CK100-S going. For example, if you are on a well maintained dirt road or smooth trail you are more likely to hit those top speeds than if you are driving up and down hills on rough trails.

When thinking about safety, the first thing we would like to mention is that a majority of accidents can be prevented by thinking and riding safely. This means that riders should understand their limitation and the limitations of the kart they are driving. There are precautions you should always take too. Soem of these things seem like common sense but we’ll go ahead and mention them. Always wear a certified DOT motorcycle or ATV helmet! Common sense right? This one thing will protect the rider from some of the most potentially serious injuries. The second thing we would always recommend is to wear eye protection.
What Safety Features does the CK100-S have
At first glance you might notice the head bar rising up from behind the seat. Although this is provided to add extra safety it is not intended to provide protection in a rollover accident. The mesh netting does provide some support against your head bouncing around as you ride.
The Coleman CK-100-s does come with side panels designed with a similar function, so they provide limited protection.
One of the main safety features is the seat belt. It has a 4 point safety harness type of seat belt to make sure you stay in the kart during your ride. The bolstered seat which adds to the safety also helps provide ac comfortable ride as you cruise down the trails.
A few last words about this off road go kart. It’s a sturdy dependable go kart great for the beginner rider right around 13 years old and up to 150 pounds. It’s 98cc, 3 hp engine provides enough power to get you where you want to go at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour.
