Droyd Fury Electric ATV: Specs

Battery: 36V lithium-ion battery
Motor: 500w brushless
Max rider weight: 150 pounds
Size: 40 x 24 x 24-inches
Recommended age range: 6 and up

Bikes run in my family’s blood. For my dad it was a ‘93 Suzuki Intruder while my own ride is an Aprilia Mana 850. Now even my 9-year-old sister can join in on the fun with the Droyd Fury ride-on quad. While not quite two wheels, this electric four-wheeler is a beastly little machine built for kids ages 6 and up. Its 36V battery provides plenty of ride time while ripping at speeds of up to 15 MPH.

But is the battery life and torque enough to justify its $599 price tag? That’s something to keep in mind when it lacks some of the fancier features other kids ride-ons have, such as a Bluetooth radio. Scroll down to see what she liked — and didn’t like — about the Droyd Fury, and if it has what it takes to be one of the hottest toys of the summer.

Droyd Fury review: What I liked

The design

The Droyd Fury ATV is a 40x24x24-inch quad with four weatherproof pneumatic tubeless wheels. These grip blacktop, dirt, and grass with ease, but it’s not a 4x4 drive so you won’t be tearing up sandy dunes anytime soon. Its seat can fit a single rider aged 6 or up that weighs under 150 pounds. Sorry Mom, Dad, and older siblings: you’re SOL if you get a little jealous and want to take this out for a spin. Your child controls the quad using a throttle on the right-hand side along with a dual handbrake system.

As an adult, my favorite part about the design is how it arrives over 95 percent assembled out of the box. We just simply bolted on the handlebars, slid in the flag, and peeled off the protective skins that guard the sleek decals. Stick the included key into the ignition, flip the power switch to the on the on position, and twist the throttle to takeoff. There's a battery power indicator on the throttle that shows red, yellow, and green LED lights to relay how much juice is left.

You can buy a Fury in three different colors: a blue camo (as tested), red camo, and green camo. The quad weighs a solid 90 pounds and has an impressively smooth dual suspension system along the undercarriage which keeps it stable on rougher terrain or, if your little ones are like my sister, jumping dividers and gaps. Also on the bottom of the quad is the 36V battery. From a full charge, we were able to get well over a full 90 minutes of intermittent driving around an open field and dirt path before the battery indicator even hit yellow.

Its performance

I simply lift the 90-pound Droyd into the back of my F150 and pop it out throughout the day as needed. While shooting pictures for this review my dad fished at the beach while my little sister ripped the Droyd through the large open parking lot. After a solid hour I threw it back into the truck and then made our way to a local field to let my sister take it for a spin. This quad is a great main event but leaves plenty of room for other activities in between your summer days. I like using it intermittently because you’re getting a whole lot more than the 45 minutes it advertises. Once you fully drain it to dead it takes around 5 hours or so to recharge from a receptacle.

We put the Droyd through its paces with Harper’s 53-inch and 78-pound frame flying across the street, grass, dirt paths, and even the beach. Sand proved to be the biggest challenge swallowing the wheels and locking the ATV in place while slowly turning—you’re absolutely not getting a true 4x4 quad experience as it’s a kid's toy. Still, the machine kept its grip in mud and easily climbed over grass hills with its powerful 500W brushless motor.

It swiftly takes off from the second you yank down the throttle which makes it a great beginner or intermediate bike for gauging how much pressure to apply to your pull. You can best see the Fury’s torque in how it rips through long grass shavings and dirt like a knife through hot butter. It really flies on asphalt and is a ton of fun for safe places like dead ends or park walking paths. You can switch between 10 or 15 MPH using the variable speed key and reaches its max within about 5 seconds. It also has a zippy reverse mode for when you run into trouble. My little sister really went to town on its handbrakes, running it through mud at full speed and then jamming on the brakes to skid onto dirt.

Its price

For $599 you’re getting a serious ride with a strong frame and sleek materials that don’t feel cheap. When you look at the comparable ride-on market, something similar from Razer would cost you about $750. But the more established brand is locked at 8MPH, has a lower capacity of just 120 pounds, and a much shorter 8-mile max range up to 40 minutes.

Then you have more younger kid-oriented ones from some relatively obscure brands. At half the price, this $350 model from Hikiddo has Bluetooth audio so smaller ones can play bangers while tearing up the dirt. With that said It only goes up to 5 MPH, has a much less durable toy-like construction, and half the weight limit. The Droyd offers a snappy twist-and-go throttle performance that sends your kid flying with a long battery life that goes and goes to give it plenty of value. When you think of buying something like a Power Wheel you’re spending a little less but it offers a fraction of the performance and won’t climb or rip as fast as the Droyd Fury does.

Droyd Fury review: What I didn't like

Small size

At 53-inches tall, Harper is the exact 50th percentile of a 9-year-old. The Droyd’s limited legroom just fit her but taller kids or older siblings would have a hard time on this ATV. With the power level a perfect introduction to bikes for a pre-teen, I would love to see it just a bit bigger or with the footrests angled to provide a little more room.

Limited color selection

As it stands you have three color selections to choose from but they’re all of a tiger camo print that looks like a firearm pattern from a Call of Duty lobby. Some matte colors or additional colors like pink, yellow, and orange would really pop. Brighter hues like these could also help with visibility when it gets darker.

It’s a pain to clean

The Fury’s body held onto grass clippings from the field while those wheels hold on to mud like poop on a blanket. Droyd’s quad is undoubtedly fun but a hassle to clean. It's easy enough to spray down after each wash but the exposed section at the bottom could benefit from a mudguard or raised edges to keep grass and dirt from caking up. It’s not hard to maintain but little improvements like these can really cut down cleaning time and hopefully keep it running longer. 

Droyd Fury review: Verdict

You have plenty of choice when it comes to outdoor kids toys. Ride-on vehicles like Power Wheels are always popular, but the Droyd’s strength is aimed for the slightly older kids and smaller tweens looking for something closer to the feeling of a real deal vehicle. Its 36V battery kicks surprisingly hard and left me impressed with enough torque to make it more versatile across a wide variety of settings. I know Harper’s 24V pink jeep ride-on is toast now since its a slower ride. 

“I had so much fun on this quad. If I could give it a rating it’s a 10/10,” Harper said. “It goes so fast.” I’d agree with the kid—for the price you’re getting a surprising amount of power. My dad was impressed with the 36V’s strength and battery life. My mom simply asked if I was going to reimburse her for the outfits and sneakers Harper ruined during testing.

The Droyd Fury is slowly but surely becoming one of our favorite new summer activities along with water balloon fights and making ice cream with the Ninja Creami. This quad is a fun toy and starter bike that’s perfect for a 6-year-old to grow with thanks to the variable sped key that can lock it at 10 or 15 MPH. Its still a blast for a 9-year-old and a serious little quad at that. This would easily pay itself off if you have younger kids close in age to share it between.
