Both my son and I love it. Complete, secure of road cycling. Thank you.
Installing it and putting it on and off is very easy and practical. My 3 year old son loves it, and I can share my love and excitement for MTB with him!! awesome product!
So good to have a way to get back out on the MTB whilst looking after my little girl. She loves it, I love it, everyones happy!
Product is well designed and good quality, it's very useful that a spare headset adapter is included so that swapping between bikes is easy. Also comes with cool stickers which is always appreciated!
Mac Ride Mini Grips
Great seat with well engineered components and easy to assemble just double check your forks are sitting correctly with no gap between them and the bike frame they just need a wiggle so they sit back in place place.
Yes it is pricey and probably gets over looked because of this but to be honest the price shows in the quality.The seat it self is good shape with nice sticky rubber for anti slip.
The seat can be a little uncomfortable for the child on longer rides but easily sorted with bike gel/foam saddle cover.
Maybe something mac ride could look into (mother in law made me one with funky cover)
Great product overall im really happy with it.
Absolutely thrilled with my purchase of the MacRide. It was a gift for my husband (and daughter!) for fathers Day and it did not disappoint. My daughter is two and a half and was not frightened to hop on, and whilst riding has never asked to get off because she's not enjoying it. It's clearly comfortable for her and although no straps except on the feet, is certainly safe. I'd recommend this to any family wanting to get out and explore together without the bulkiness of a trailor, or the instability of a back riding seat. And to add, Amanda was an amazing customer representative who went above and beyond to ensure the product arrived just in time for Fathers day, thankyou!
Loving our new seat. It has made trips out really interactive as me and my granddaughter can chat away as we head off in search of butterflies and horses. She loves it, and wants me to go faster and giggles away went we find whooshy bits. I’m having a dropper post fitted to my bike as I find having the saddle at the height I’m comfortable riding up hills too high for comfort at junctions and for stopping. I am what is locally called an eGranny as I have an bike, the man ride only just goes over the battery so that might be something for the future. I’ve put helicopter tape on the bike to prevent damage. I love how easy it is to take on and off.
Looks great, fits perfectly, feels comfortable, and gives you some valuable one-on-one time with your little one(s). What's more to like?
Absolutely fantastic seat I can’t put into words how good the seat is me and my boy Have had so much fun ..The after sales is fantastic Any help needed thy are on hand And reply quickly with any info needed.. five stars ..!! Look no further For your riding buddy’s seat you won’t find better fitted within minutes safe and solid thanks for such a fantastic product and service
There is not much more I can say that hasn't already been said in the other reviews below. It is the best seat on the market in my opinion. I have previously used one of those rear seats on a gravel bike but my 2 year old complained about the ride comfort when we went off road. Also he wasn't engaged in the ride to the same extent. Since we moved to the full suspension mt bike with the MacRide seat has changed everything. We can ride for miles, I can take the boys balance bike so he can do stretches, i then attach the balance bike to my pack and off we go to a new spot.
Wanted to bring the family along on my bike rides during lockdown. My wife was unsure about how secure our 3 year old would be, but her worries were eased as soon as we got him on it! His beaming smile and demands for bike rides make it worth every penny.
Our son absolutely loves it, has given my wife the confidence to ride off road as it gives so much balance compared to rear mounted seats.
Added bonus is just how quickly it can swap from one bike to another
We’ve had the seat 2 weeks now and have used it about 6 times. Very easy to fit (10 minutes to fit collar and seat) and only takes 1-2 minutes to move between bikes.
Our daughter loves the seat so far. Can see a lot more compared to a rear seat, and much easier to speak to her and hear what she’s saying. Hopefully we’ll get a lot more use out of it over the rest of summer.
My son finds them very comfortable and the padded palms save his hands when he has a tumble. A little tight to get his hands in to (3 1/2 years old and quite big for his age) but they are perfect when fully on.
Well made, light, easy to fit and my son loves!
Kids love it, we love it. Gets the family out and about on our bikes. My 2 year old absolutely loves and and doesnt stop smiling...only problem is that my other 6 year old daughter now wants to ride on dads bike instead o riding her own bike.
Great purchase, if a little expensive. It fits well, and instructions are clear. Once installed, it very sturdy with no problem when my kids are sitting on it.
Delivery was slightly delayed due to COVID-19 but customer services were very apologetic and helpful, and as soon as they received stock it was delivered the next day thereafter.
Awesome and easy 5 stars
Great product, well engineered and fits in seconds, our 2yr old girl loves getting out on the trails with me, to the point where there are tears when we have to return home 🤣.
Not the cheapest kids seat but worth the extra expense IMO.
£200 for a child's bike seat is somewhat expensive. But the fact that it fits on my enduro bike means that I actually take my daughter out, rather than faffing with a trailer and having to use a rusty old bike that is trailer compatible. Very easy to fit and remove! Quailty is great. My daughter loves it and asks to go on "daddy's bike". We have been able to ride for an hour with ease. Due to her height (nearly 4 years old) and probably the "enduro" style riding position, I think it will be less that 12 months until my chin is having to rest on her helmet. I do find that I have to splay my knees when riding, so probably wouldnt want to ride for much more than an hour without a brake for my knees. I don't normally write reviews, but this is so good, and I wanted to say a bit thank you to the guys at MacRide!!
We are keen mountain bikers, it’s great to take the kids out with us. My 2 1/2 year old son absolutely loves it! I know this is not the cheapest product out there but it’s definitely money well spent. So Easy to fit and remove very well built and the kids are securely stuck on there. Delivery was super fast
Excellent for taking our grandaughter mtbing. Quality engineering and performance, great product as reflected in the price.
Already one of the best things we’ve purchased for our kids. If items were purchased on smiles and laughs per £, this would be right up there! Top quality and amazing fun for the whole family! Cannot recommend highly enough. Just wish I’d bought one sooner.
It is brilliant! My 20 month old son absolutely loves it and we can finally enjoy to bike ride together as a family and in such cool, interactive way! He took to it straight away too. Thank you for the great design. The only downside is the price. It is quite expensive but other than that its brilliant!
Well designed, solidly made, easy to set up. It has revolutionised our cycling experience. No more bouncing up and down over the rear wheel, staring at my back with no exhilaration of speed and seeing the route ahead. My daughter absolutely loves it and so do I! It is pricey but well worth it. The whoops of joy as we fly downhill are music to my ears. She can help steer and gets used to our direction changes following the turns of the handlebars. So much so, that I can feel her starting to instigate the movements herself when she sees obstacles. My legs do get splayed out a bit but nothing too uncomfortable and difficult.
My daughter is a tall 3.5yo and there is still another inch to drop on the leg rests. Once her feet are strapped in (really easy to do) then she is going nowhere. I did buy a full face helmet just incase her hands slip but with the foam grips (extra purchase) and gloves, she has shown no sign of this yet.
Get one, you wont regret it!
An excellent product, quality engineering and performance. The whole family are now off road riding, whilst keeping our grandaughter safe, who loves to ride. I believe the price reflects the quality and product control.
Was after something to fit an eBike with a large top tube and with the adaptor kit this is just perfect! Fitting is a breeze and my daughter absolutely loves coming out for a ride. Cheaper alternatives out there but for quality, ease of use and adjustability I’m yet to come across anything better. As others have mentioned would be nice to get the grips included at the price point but can’t fault the seat itself. Would highly recommend.
Set up the seat within 15 minutes and had my niece hovering around itching to give it a go - so much fun, feels safe and sturdy so super excited to get going on the trails!
Great upgrade from the WeeRide which my little dude was using since he was 1year old. Once he started to grew out of WR I knew the only next seat for him is the MacRide! There is so many amazing vids on line with the supper happy mountain bikers and their kids shredding down the trails. I could not imagine any other product. It is pricey but worth every penny. Engineered cleverly, build from premium materials, easy to fix the first time (comes with 2x spacer rings for two bikes by default!) end super easy to fix any other time, very fast! We change it between my wife’s hardtail and mine full suspension bike swiftly and it works perfectly! Dude loves it, he is 4 now, pedaling his own two wheels - belter trial 16 comfortably already (started early with the balance bikes) but for longer daddy’s workouts makes me to also carry his bike with us (strapped to the back pack) and just enjoys the ride. No problemo. Our local woods at outskirts of NW London are a perfect playground for now. Can not wait when a proper trial centres will be open again, we have done blues and reds at Swinley Forest and I hope now Dude will be able to get through some of it him self. MacRide makes such adventures possible!! Thanks so much for it!!
Absolutely love the the seat, such a great design, got it so we can go out for rides as a family, my 3 year old loves it. We have been out for 4 rides in a weeks, ranging from 30 mins to 3 hours, seat is so comfortable. It's also really helped my 3-year-old on the balance bike with riding positioning an balance
Bought for my 2.5 yr old to use. He absolutely loves it, he feels safe and secure and loves being up front to see everything. He mastered standing up for the bumpy bits very easily and asks to go on a bike ride everyday since we got it. Easy to peddle as normal with him there and his weight is well balanced to not affect the handling of the bike. Was super easy to fit even for a novice like me and is strong and secure. We love this seat it's fantastic!
So quick and easy to get on and off, so you don't need anything cumbersome attached to your bike the whole time. The little one gets a really exciting and engaged ride. Millions of times better than a seat on the back! People are always a bit surprised to see a toddler on a bike seat on (easy) mtb trails, but he loves it!
Awesome. 18 month old son got to grips with it straight away. Goes on it for an hour at a time no worries. Well worth it.
Our 3 year old is still on a balance bike but with the MacRide, he absolutely loves that we can all go for a cycle together and I just strap his bike to my back for when he wants a go. So much better for him sitting up front rather than staring at my back for a couple of hours. Brilliant build quality and shouldn’t mark the bike frame like other options might. It might be more than a rear seat but it’s well worth the extra.
Both my sons love riding on daddys bike with him. It's really quick and easy to adjust for each of the to fit comfortably.
