This is a superbly designed seat. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for and the quality of the components are excellent. It is light but strong and very easy to install and adjust. My son absolutely loves the front seat position - I can communicate easily with him whilst riding and he has a sense of taking part in the control of the bike and able to see everything happening ahead. Initially I was concerned about the safety of this position, however there is much more control, awareness, and my body and arms that envelope make my son feel safe and secure. I would definitely recommend.
It's incredibly secure. I can't fault it.
My son is very stable on the bike and the bike itself is easier to control. I had a rear bike seat that attached to the seat tube before, it bounced too much and the center of gravity was really off, making it very difficult to keep upright (we have crashed when simply standing as the bike can 'flip out' underneath you). None of those issues with the Mac Ride. Plus, my son get's to see everything that's happening and 15 minute rides (in the old seat) are now 45mins+ on the Mac Ride. AND you as the parent can get a work out and go as hard as you like without too much fear of safety. Highly recommended.
There weren’t many front seats on the market that would fit my bike and I’d had Mac Ride recommenced to me. It’s more expensive than some other options but you get top quality for the price. Really well made and thought out. My boy loves it and was so excited on our first ride. Highly recommend.
My son is 3y and I still need a seat from time to time. I really wish I had found this one years ago. He fits nicely and comfortably on the crossbar despite his age and despite the fact that I am small. The seat is loads quicker to fit and remove than the Wee-ride we had before. Very well designed and very easy to use. Is compatible with dropper posts too. The only downside is that it is awkward when my son falls to sleep because his torso isn't strapped in.
The is easily the best child seat I have bought.
Being the proud parents of 3 boys it was obvious they were going to follow in dad's footsteps and be shredding the trials as soon as they were able. We have tried bike trailers which are great for filling full of stuff on a long day out, but can be problematic for gates, narrow single-track ect. The Macride seat is a work of genius and our latest edition to the family absolutely loves it, the only downside for me is I wish I had it 11 years ago. 11/10 Macride
