FOR YOUR GREATER COMFORT AND SAFETY WE HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO REPLACE THE QUADS WITH BUGGIES.
Since January 2022 we do not carry out quad routes, only in buggy and 4x4.
Although the quad emerged as a vehicle halfway between a motorbike and a car in order to be effective in different terrains, they have undergone different transformations to reach all audiences. It is basically a motorbike with handlebars and four wheels, as opposed to a buggy, which is like an automatic off-road car with a steering wheel.
That is why in recent years it has been quickly dethroned by buggies.

Among the main evolutionary differences we find the following
In a quad, the driver and passenger share a seat behind each other, without the possibility of a backrest for the driver.
Buggies are also called “side by side” as both driver and passenger are side by side. Each has a seat with a seat belt.
The suspensions in the buggies are designed to have the least possible impact on the driver and passenger, when in the quad, all the imperfections of the terrain, whether potholes, rocks or slopes, is cushioned in the arms of the driver, in his body especially in the lumbar area, and he must have control over the vehicle resulting in making an extra effort to maintain balance in the same.
As we have already mentioned, in the buggy there are seats and a seat belt for each passenger. On the other hand, in the quad, one rides free, with the passengers’ bodies bearing the brunt of the impact in the event of an accident.
It is worth noting that, in a buggy, we are protected by a metal “box” formed by the roll bars, which protect the occupants in the event of an accident, making it safer than a conventional car or off-road vehicle.
EASE OF DRIVING
Another advantage with a quad is that the buggy has two pedals, accelerator and brake, which acts as a clutch.
The buggy has a steering wheel which, unlike the quad, has handlebars.
It is clear that if you have a driving license type B, which we require as a rule, it is much easier to adapt to driving a buggy than a quad.
In general, first-time quad drivers think that it is similar to driving a motorbike, which is more than wrong. The handlebar movements for turning on a motorbike and on a quad are different. A motorbike has to lean and a quad cannot lean, so the technique is different.
A further disadvantage of the quad in comparison to the buggy is that the throttle is located on the right thumb. All the power is applied to only one finger, which is very uncomfortable for long excursions in different places, because the muscle is not used to it.
