    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Which Is the Safest Child Bike Seat?

    When it comes to Hamax, there is no ‘safest’ model. All their child bike seats undergo rigorous testing.   



    Which Child Bike Seat Is the Best? 

    Again, all Hamax models are of the highest quality and most serious regard for child safety. However, if you’re asking which model has the most features, the Hamax Caress with Carrier Adapter is the answer.



    What Is the Best Budget Child Bike Seat? 

    The Hamax Kiss is an incredible budget option, coming in at just $149.95 and including features such as replaceable padding and adjustable footrest height. In addition, the Hamax freely suspended fastening bracket offers a significant level of natural springing, which helps look after the child’s spine whilst out and about.



    Which Is Safer Between a Bike-mounted Seat and a Bike Trailer?  

    In terms of safety features, Hamax ensures all products are of the highest possible standards. If an accident were to occur, it is perhaps less likely for a trailer to tip over. That said, we think this is more a question of which type is better for you, your child and the type of riding you want to do.



    Do Children Have to Wear Helmets When Riding in a Child's Bike Seat? 

    Yes, even though they are passengers, kids are required by law to wear Australian safety standards approved bicycle helmets. 



    At What Age Can a Child Go on a Bike Seat?

    Although there is no law, the recommended age is between one and four years old. That said, of course, kids develop at varying rates, so it’s best to visit a bike store with your child and have a chat with an expert!



    How Many Bike Seats Can a Bike Handle? 

    A bike can handle a rear and front-facing bike seat. 



    Are Bike Seats Safe for Toddlers, Babies, and Kids? 

    Bike seats are safe for toddlers and kids who are at least one year old but no more than approximately four years old. We would recommend you use a bike trailer for a baby of at least nine months of age. 



    Is the Front or Rear Bike Seat Safe?

    Again, this is less a question of which is safest (because Hamax works to ensure all its products and accessories are as safe as possible) and more a question of which is best for you, your child and the type of riding you do. 
    A front-facing seat gives your little passenger better viewing and also means you can keep an eye on them and make sure they’re not, for example, trying to tamper with anything! However, it can be problematic for some steering and sometimes it’s a little awkward to get on or off the bike. A rear seat is easier for the cyclist to do all the pedalling; it better protects your passenger from the wind and has a longer shelf-life in adapting to your growing child. 
    On the other hand, some parents find a rear-facing seat makes it harder to balance, and they don’t like not being able to see their passenger or talk to them as easily.
