When is my child allowed in a Bobike safety seat?
From the moment your child can sit unaided, it can come with you on the bike. On average, this is at about 9 months. For the little ones we have several front mounted seats that are suitable for children up to 3 years of age or weighing less than 15 kg (legal regulations). Children under 6 years of age or weighing less than 22 kg can safely take place in one of Bobike’s rear mounted seats. And when they have grown out of the rear seat, they can still safely take place on a Bobike Junior which can carry up to 35 kg.
