The safe-T-seat is designed for children age 4 and under. The minimum age is 12 months as the child needs to be able to sit up well and hold the weight of a helmet on his/her head. The maximum height of the child that can use the safe-T-seat is 44 inches. Kids much taller than that will be uncomfortable. The recommended max weight is 38 lbs. Above 38 lbs and the maneuverability of the bike may be affected.
Does the safe-T-seat meet ASTM 1625-00 standards?
Yes and no. The safe-T-seat is designed to meet all 1625-00 standards, which it does. But ASTM 1625-00 is written for rear child carriers so front mounted seats do not apply at this time. One of our goals at iBert Inc. is to petition and work with the ASTM to create a new ASTM standard for all front mounted seats that is above ASTM 1625-00.
Does the safe-T-seat meet BS EN 14344?
Yes. The British Standard is the safety standard for child seats for cycles. There are 5 main areas the seat was tested for 1) construction, 2) Strength and Durability, 3) Attachment of the seat to the cycle, 4) Restraint System, and 5) Foot guarding and retention. The safe-T-seat has been tested through an independent testing lab and passed all categories of the standard.
