Don’t leave the littles one behind, bring them along on your rides! Child bike seats are a fun and exciting way to introduce your child to bikes.

The chart can be sorted by clicking on the header of each column (works best in desktop). For additional breakdowns, including our rankings, see our Best Child Bike Seats list.
