Bringing the kids along for a bike ride just got easier with the introduction of the new Thule RideAlong™ Child Seat. As part of Thule’s new Active with Kids line, this safe and stylish seat is available in three colors to complement any bike and installs or removes from the bike in under 30 seconds.

The new Thule RideAlong tilts to five different angles for a comfortable ride. The bracket can be locked to the bike using the Thule One Key System (sold separately). The seat is compatible with circular bicycle seat tubes (28-40mm) and oval tubes (max 40 x 55mm).

“We took a step back and asked how we can truly make a different child seat. One of the major issues with current models was the time to install or remove,” stated TJ Hanson of Thule. “Our new Thule RideAlong literally installs or removes in under 30 seconds making it one of the most consumer friendly seats on the market.”
