We know. It's been a tough 9 months, and you've never felt more vulnerable now that your baby is out of your protective body and into the world. So how do you balance the need to show them all the world has to offer and at the same time keep them super duper safe?
Now we all know bicycle child seats are a godsend. It keeps your mini-me strapped in and snug while you get to clock in your daily exercise, run errands, and soak in some sun and breeze. But what makes the right child seat?
Double-up with front and rear child seats if you need! City bikes with a lower, curved frame and rear racks like our Bobbin bikes makes it safe and easy to bring the kids around.
1. SAFETY IS KEY
Bobike child seats use a unique double-walled design to ensure maximum protection, while still being lightweight. It's extra stable too and wouldn't wobble around much during your ride.
So beautiful and safe that the Dutch Consumer Organization awarded it with the Best Tested and Best Buy titles.
2. NO FUSS NO MUSS
Convenience and speed is priority when handling children. Straps and footrests on Bobike child seats can be adjusted with one hand. Mounting and removing of child seats are also simple and quick, and each seat comes with a lock too, so you won't have to worry about switching between bikes or theft.
3. UNIVERSAL MOUNTS
Got a thick handlebar stem with your bike, like a Brompton for example? Throw in the RAD adapter and your Bobike front seat will fit right in. Just look at our cheery lil buddy Dillon here.
Each Bobike rear seat comes with both a Click & Go carrier mount, AND a 1P mounting system, so whether your bike comes with or without a rear rack, you're all set.

Bright solid colors that heighten visibility for yourself and your kid, never hurts. Plus, your kids will be extra excited about getting in and going on their next adventure. The Exclusive Tour also comes with a wide rear reflector for added safety.
5. SLEEPYHEADS LOVE EM
Alongside the IF Design Award, the Exclusive Mini / Exclusive Maxi comes with unique contoured belts that help support a sleeping child's head and neck. You can even opt for front head cushions for extra comfort.
