    Mounting Option


    Find Your Fit

    Find Your Fit

    Determine your mounting option

    If your bike does not have a carrier rack, choose a Frame Mount bike seat.

    Dual-bar steel with Bow and Lockable Bracket design fits most* bike frames 28-40mm. One of the smaller Lockable Bracket designs on the market, the Hamax design mounts on the bike frame without interfering with important components or your comfort. This frame-mount option offers easy installation, quick-release functionality and green safety indicators to ensure secure installation. Acquiring a second Lockable Bracket allows you to easily transfer the seat between bikes. This style is not compatible with most e-bikes or carbon frames. It may work with a bike fitted with a rack carrier, but it depends on the frame size and rack design (most people opt for the Rack Mount option).

    *Hamax USA Customer Service is available and happy to help with any fitting issues post-purchase. Customer Service can be reached at: 877-252-4560 (8am-4pm PST) or [email protected].

    If your bike does have a carrier rack, choose a Rack Mount bike seat.

    The Hamax with Carrier Adapter fits most* cargo/luggage rack carriers sized 120-180 mm with a minimum 55 lb capacity. Its innovative twist-closure design allows for tool-free installation and dismounting for transfer between rack carriers on different bikes. This style accommodates e-bikes, carbon, or non-standard frames with an installed rack carrier.

      So far so good :). Little one loves the seat (if not the helmet). Love that it reclines and is easily adjustable.

      Great bike seat, my 1.5 yrs toddler is comfortable on it, and it looks amazing! The style is much better than other bike seats out there. I’m very happy with the seat belt, it’s easy to adjust so I can make it looser when putting on her (because she’s wearing a helmet) and then tighten it after I buckle her in, it’s great!
      The quality if the seat is superb, and we feel safe using it.

      Our 9 month old rides comfortably in this seat. We love having two brackets, as one is installed on each of our bikes so we can swap the seat out easily. We have had this seat one month and so far, we are extremely happy with it. We attached the seat to our beach cruisers with no issues. The recess for baby’s bike helmet is clever, as are the little foot rests. We love that our Hamax Caress will grow with our little one out to 40+ pounds. The seat is well-made, sturdy, with a luxurious feel.

      My son — and me and my wife — LOVE this child seat. I have been bringing my son to daycare on this since he was nine months old. We live in Manhattan (in New York City) and there are protected bike lanes in my neighborhood (East Village). We even used it on 90% of winter days (all days except when there was snow or rain). I bundled him up in a warm snow suit and he did great. He really enjoys the rides; bike is now one of his favorite words. I recommend the one that attaches directly to the bike post.

      I store my bike on my street, in front of my apartment building. I have been storing my bike outside for many years (with a big-NYC proof chain), but I was worried that this bike seat would get stolen. I have been storing it outside for nine months with no trouble at all. I purchased the rain cover, which is a must have if you are storing it outside.

      I wish I had purchased the neck support cushion. When he was nine to 14 months, he would fall asleep on the ride. The neck support would have been helpful during that early period. Now, he no longer falls asleep, so it is a non-issue.

      Love the seat! We are city bike riders and the seat allows us to adventure all over with ease. My daughter(13 months) loves going on bike rides and even falls asleep sometimes!
      My wish would be for hamax to incorporate some sort of sun umbrella to block the sun. My daughter has sensitive eyes and fair skin so an umbrella to shield the sun would be great but we love the seat otherwise. Sleek style and comfortable for Avery!

      This is a great seat. I have my 3.5 yo in the Caress in back and my 1.5 yo in an Observer up front! It makes for a heavy bike, but it’s worth it. We’ve had some great rides together.

      We’ve owned our frame mounted Caress for a few months now, and so far we’ve found it to be easy to assemble. Attaches and detaches from the bike quickly (we take it off when transporting it on roadtrips). We’ve been using it with our daughter since she was 9 months old, and she’s always seemed relatively comfortable when riding at a low speed. With the proper balance I’m able to get her secured by myself as well.

      Good quality construction. Lightweight and user friendly. Most importantly, feels very safe, and my daughter loves it, and going for bike rides (3-4x/week)! Highly recommend and plan on many more rides into the future!

      We love our seat! It is absolutely wonderful and the customer service could not be better. We couldn’t make ours work so I called customer service. They were so helpful and had me send photos of the seat on the bike. They knew exactly what I needed and shipped it out to me the very next day. We set it up and it has been my 2 year old daughters favorite place to be for about the past year. It leans back a bit too so your baby can rest. It locks into place for additional safety and is very sturdy. You should know that if you go over big bumps that the seat can bounce and if the bumps are really big if can bounce down and hit your tire. That is the only thing I have found that is not 100% excellent, but it would happen with any seat. I love it, my daughter loves it, and you will love it too!

      I love this bike seat! Not only does it have a sleek appearance, but it is also very functional and sturdy. I love that the base locks onto the bike so it cannot be stolen. The seat is easily removable, and I can twist the knob to lay my little one back if he falls asleep – without getting off of my bike. I would recommend and buy this product again and again.

      We (me and my daughter Madison) absolutely love this seat!! We have owned ours for about 2 years now and really enjoy our rides. It’s comfortable (see falls asleep sometimes) and most of all safe. We have had others and did not feel as confident as we do with the Hamax. Highly recommend!!
