The Best Kids Bike Seats

If you’re looking to include a little one in your two-wheeled travels, a kids bike seat is likely the simplest and most affordable way to go. We spent over 100 hours researching more than two-dozen kids bike seats, and we rode 300-plus miles in and around Austin, Texas, with 10 different seats in 2020 and 2021. After all that, we’re confident the Thule Yepp Maxi is the best rear-mount seat, with the Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi coming in a close second. The Thule Yepp Nexxt Mini is our favorite front-mount seat (kids age out of front-mount seats sooner). If you’re looking for a seat that costs a bit less, we also have a new budget pick: the Burley Dash.
