Stopping While Descending
This is a fairly straightforward technique. The trick is to shift your weight smoothly, from leaning forward as you ascend to shifting your weight to the rear as you descend.
- As you descend, shift your weight back toward the rear of the ATV. On steep slopes, straighten your knees and elbows, but don't lock them.
- Bend forward so that your rear is over the back of the seat.
- Shift into low gear, and apply the brakes to slow your descent.
