Why is the iBert safe-T-seat so great?
The iBert safe-T-seat is the safest front-mounted child’s bike seat available. The pivoting lap bar makes it easier and safer to load and unload your child. The center of gravity of the seat is closer to the bike’s center of gravity, so the bike is easier to steer and control. The 3-point safety harness keeps little ones buckled in snuggly. The seat sits between the adult rider’s arms, but behind the bike’s handlebars, for added safety.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 the 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. The recommended weight determined by this standard is 17 kg.
DOES THE SAFE-T-SEAT MEET BS EN 14344 STANDARDS?
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. This standard has determined the max weight to be at 17 kg. The manufacture and composition of the seat itself has not altered. This weight has been determined from a maneuverability perspective.
