Front-mounted seats are a great option for parents of young toddlers who want to be close to their child and engage with them during a ride. Hearing and communicating with a child in a seat behind you is very difficult, but it’s super easy with front-mounted seats.
Many bikes are not compatible with front-mounted seats, so be sure to read through our Child Bike Seat Buying Guide before you purchase a seat.
The chart below can be sorted by clicking on the header of each column (works best in desktop).
For additional breakdowns, including our rankings, see our Best Front-Mounted Child Bike Seats list.
