Which pedal mechanisms do BERG Go-Karts use?

There are several different mechanism styles for BERG pedal go-karts.

Automatic Freewheel style (BERG AF)

is no longer being produced, but these old-style go-karts can drive both forwards and backwards.

Brake, Freewheel, and Reverse (BFR)

The new style is Brake, Freewheel, and Reverse (BFR) – this means that the go-karts can reverse from a standstill, with a back pedal coaster brake to stop and the freewheel system keeping the pedals still while the wheels are in motion.


provides pedal support via an electrical motor.



these models have three gears to make them even faster and more powerful.

Direct Drive

When you want to keep things simple, direct drive go-karts have a single gear with a rear-axle brake, making them easier to operate for younger go-kart drivers.

What does the BERG Go-Kart BFR system mean?

There’s no need to be confused by the newer BFR Go-Karts – they’re simply an upgrade from the older models! The BERG BFR system makes it simple to understand which type of frame, gears, and motor you can expect a model in each category to have. These BFR ratings apply to the larger BERG Go-Karts, for children 5 years old and up (and adults, where specified).

The standard BFR go-karts have an XL frame and can easily brake and reverse via the pedals.

For faster speeds, they’re available with three gears as BFR-3 go-karts. The XXL BFR go-karts are the same, but with an XXL reinforced and extended frame, making them more comfortable for taller and bigger users. Then you have the E-BFR go-karts, which feature an XXL frame plus an electric motor with a rechargeable battery for extra pedal power. Again, you can upgrade to three gears with E-BFR-3 go-karts.

Which BERG Go-Kart is best for my child?

It’s easy to find the best fit for your child using the age range filters. Then, you can click on a specific model and check the weight and height restrictions (if any) to make sure that it’s suitable for your child’s size. For a child’s first go-kart, they can learn to push and pedal with a BERG Go2 from as young as 10 months old.

BERG Buzzy & Reppy ranges

From 2 to 5 years, the BERG Buzzy range is most suitable, or they can discover the sporty racing style of a BERG Reppy Go-Kart from 2.5 years old.

BERG Buddy

From 3-8 years old, kids can get a bit bigger and bolder with the BERG Buddy range. For a lightweight and adjustable pedal go-kart, the BERG Rally range is suitable for children between 4 and 12 years old.


When kids get to 12 years and above, including teenagers, they can benefit from the bigger frames and more advanced driving systems of BERG BFR models. Adults can use most of these large go-karts, too, meaning that parents can drive along with the kids for family fun. There are lots of colours, themes, and accessories to choose from, including streamlined racers, cool off-roaders, and even John Deere tractor-style go-karts!
