As promised in our recent newsletter to members and supporters, the Darlovelo Team has started to develop the new Family Pack of child-centred accessories with the introduction of child seat hire. We’ve test-fitted one of the top models on the market, the Norwegian Hamax Siesta, and this is now available for hire for from a month to a year. Rates are £8 a month, £20 for 6 months, and £30 for a full year.
One of the best child seats on the market, the Hamax Siesta child seat’s 20 degree reclining facility allows your young one to enjoy a wee nap while you pedal. Even when reclined, the Hamax Siesta has been designed to ensure the bike’s centre of gravity does not move too far backwards, so the bike remains remarkably stable to ride.
The UV-stabilised polypropylene seat is specially moulded to accommodate a helmeted head comfortably. This backrest is ventilated. The Hamax Double Buckle System is secure yet easy for the parent to open and close with one hand while supporting the bike with the other hand.
This buckle can’t be opened by the child. Adjustable safety harness and foot supports.
The seat’s integral rack adds an element of suspension to damp road / trail shock. Check this You Tube video.
Suitable for children from around 9 months old.
Maximum recommended payload: 22kg.
NOTE: There are no concessions on child seats
