  • Free scooters for schools!

    Free scooters for schools! Here at ATK Towers we have 10 of our new All Terrain Scooters to donate to the primary schools of your choice. Our new off-road scooter is perfect to use on playgrounds or playing fields.  All you have to do is to talk to a teacher at your nominated school and get them to email us at info@allterrainkart.co.uk headed “Free Scooters” using their official school email address saying why they think their school deserves to win. We will then select the best 5 entries who will each receive two ATK Scooters (worth £160 at rrp) absolutely...

  • The new All Terrain Scooter

    Here at ATK Towers we have been busy designing a new scooter.  Yes, there are lots of excellent small wheeled metal scooters out there but they can only be used on pavements, which limits the fun that can be had.  We've therefore designed an all terrain scooter which is just as at home on grass (or even gravel) as it is on a hard surface.    The bonus is that this off-road scooter also made of a high grade sustainable plywood and looks really different.  But best of all it's only £49.99 reduced from £79.99. Now that can't be bad...... Check it out here....

  • Loved By Us.......

    Here at ATK Towers we come across a lot of companies and their products, some of which we think are brilliant.  So we've decided that it would be good to share these with you. We've started off with Go-Kart Party who organise children's parties.  Their electric go karts are fun but totally safe for budding Jenson Buttons. Tidy Books make the most amazing bookcases for children.  Their clever design highlights the picture on the book's cover making it so much more engaging for little ones.  Feral make the perfect ramp helmet for your children to wear on their ATK; they even...

  • KEEP IT SAFE

    Karting is great; fresh air, exercise and fun all in one package! However it's important to keep it safe too. Helmet Many children already have bicycle helmets, which are fine, but ramp helmets are even better as they have greater side protection.  Amazon have a great range which you will find here. Elbow and Knee pads Elbow and knee pads can be a good idea too, particularly if the kart is being used on a hard surface.  Here's another link to Amazon. Gloves Finally, if you want to go for the full set, you can buy protective gloves here. Let...

  • PERFECT FOR SCHOOLS

    Whether it's just for the kids to play on at break time, for after school clubs or more ambitious school projects, the ATK range has something for everyone. Here are a few examples and suggestions of what may work for you: Playtime fun Several schools (and councils) have already bought karts for their children to enjoy playing on outside of lesson time and for after-school clubs.  The ATK is safe (CE rated), tough, perfect for encouraging children to play together and enjoy the fresh air. School projects Junior schools: Richmond Hill School bought 20 ATK Starts last year.  Every class was then given...

  • RETURNING YOUR HOVERBOARD?

    You may be aware that Amazon, John Lewis and Argos are asking anyone who has bought a "hoverboard" to return it to them for a full refund due to safety issues.  If you are one of these customers and are left wondering what to replace it with, email us a photo of your receipt at info@allterrainkart.co.uk and we'll give you a discount code for 10% off an ATK Classic or ATK Pro.   Provided you place your order before midday on Tuesday 22nd December, we'll get it to you for Christmas.  You'll end up spending much less money for much more fun,...

  • WANT TO BUILD YOUR OWN WOODEN GO-KART?

    We have seen from your feedback on Facebook that a lot of you look back with nostalgia at a time when you built your own wooden go-kart and the fun that you had doing it.  That's music to our ears because we have similar memories and that's what led to Christopher and me starting ATK.  Sadly times have changed and scavenging on the local dump for Silver Cross pram wheels is simply not possible, so launching the ATK was our way of offering today's children a chance to share in the fun that we had at their age. However some of you would still...

  • LOVED BY US.........

    Here at ATK Towers we come across a lot of companies and their products, some of which we think are brilliant.  So we've decided that it would be good to share these with you and have introduced a "Loved by us......" collection. Over the coming months we will be building a catalogue of businesses that we hope will be of interest to you.  We've started off with Go-Kart Party who organise children's parties; Tidy Books who make the most amazing bookcases for children; Feral, who make the perfect helmet for your children to wear on their ATK and Little Big Sports who supply a...

  • SO WHAT IS A RUN-FLAT TYRE?

    We are gradually changing our wheels over to being fitted with run-flat tyres.  So what is a run-flat tyre? In simple terms it's a wheel fitted with a proper canvas re-inforced rubber tyre (similar to the ones fitted to your car) but, instead of having an inflatable inner tube, it has a high-density foam insert:  So why are we doing this?  Because it gives you all of the advantages of a pnuematic tyre wheel with none of the hassles of keeping it blown up or dealing with punctures.  But don't confuse these wheels with the wheels on a lot of buggies.  They...

  • WHICH ONE SUITS YOU?

    Here at ATK Towers we have watched our range of karts grow rapidly over the past three years.  Not only do our young customers have a choice of ride, we are now selling an adult kart too so that Mums and Dads can join in the wooden go-karting fun too.  Well reviewed by Wired magazine, recommended by Theo Paphitis, The Times and The Telegraph (Daisy Bridgewater) we've built quite a following! We have a range of three children's go karts:  ATK Start At £119.99  the Start is our basic model designed to get you on a set of wheels (with a fitted dual-action brake of...
