HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR CHILD SEAT? 

Child seats can hold babies from the age of 9 or 10 months (once they are able to hold their head up on their own) who weigh up to 22 kg. Thanks to the strap around the chest and feet, children can enjoy bike rides while remaining stable and without affecting the cyclist's balance.

DECATHLON's cycling brand offers handy tips to help with your cycling practice.

There are several types of child seat. They can be fitted to 3 places on your bike: at the back on the pannier rack, at the back directly on the frame itself, or at the front between the handlebar and saddle.

THE POSITION ON THE BIKE 

Whether your child seat is on the pannier rack or the handlebars, it is a practical way of getting about with baby on everyday or recreational rides. Perfect for enjoying cycling as a family!

AT THE BACK ON THE PANNIER RACK

Most models fix onto the pannier rack, at the back of the bike. Some seats can be tilted so that baby can take a nap if needed.

AT THE BACK ON THE FRAME

Child seats that fit onto your frame are removable and more comfortable. Just make sure you check that the seat is compatible with the diameter of your frame.

AT THE FRONT OF THE BIKE

You can also get child seats that you can install on the front of your bike. Their advantage is that you can keep an eye on your child.
Front seats fix directly onto the steering column, between the handlebar and saddle in front of the rider. These models can be fixed at their very lowest height so that the cyclist's visibility is not hindered

Before setting off it's vital that you check your child is sitting comfortably in their seat and properly strapped in. They should be sitting up straight with their head supported. It is strongly recommended that children wear a helmet to increase their safety.
