Coming from the U.S. brand that produced my all-time favorite (and still in my wishlist) bike, the Stingray, the Schwinn Child Seat: Schwinn Deluxe Child Carrier had to be in my review list. But, of course, this is not the only reason. The Schwinn deserves this position as one of the best child bike seats in the market right now, as it has many features that stand out from the competition.When biking with kids, the Schwinn child seat is probably one of the most attractive, given the proximity and ability to protect them in case of bike accident.

Schwinn Deluxe Child Carrier: Schwinn Child Seat Review

Overview

This rear-mount child bike seat is conceived for ages 2 and up, for kids weighing up to 40 lb (18 kg). This child seat is made of polypropylene, fact that makes it very lightweight.

Installation / compatibility

It assembles easily on most adult bicycles that can fit a cargo rack. One thing that makes it stand out from the rest of the bike seat, is that the package includes its own cargo rack, making it a 100% perfect secure fit. If your bike can fit Schwinn’s rack, that’s all you have to do.

However, the rack isn’t sold separately yet, so there’s no possibility to switch between bikes.

What the package includes

Is it safe for kids?

It has a 3 point padded harness, a headrest, and padded crossbar. The backrest height is good, covering the back fully. It has adjustable foot rests as well.

The seat is padded too, and its padding, detachable. The Schwinn deluxe child carrier brings all the safety measures needed, including, a reflector in the back part for extra visibility.

 

Is it comfortable for adults to ride with?

Being situated in the rear of the bicycle, and especially in the rack, generally, there’s enough leg room for the parent.

However, there are some kinds of bicycles that don’t admit the installation of racks, or that already have racks and aren’t detachable.

For alone time, this child carrier can be easily detached through quick-release.
