When carrying children, note the following instructions:
- After installing the child seat, ensure that you are familiar with the changed riding characteristics
of the cargo bike. Try it out first outside the road traffic.
- You must be at least 16 years old to transport a child in the transport box or in the child seat.
- Only carry a child in the transport box or in the child seat if the child is wearing a suitable bike helmet which is compliant with the country-specific and regional regulations or which has been checked pursuant to the DIN EN 1078 standard and which bears the CE test mark.
- Brake earlier, plan for a longer braking distance and heavier steering.
- Practice mounting and dismounting away from road traffic.
- Practice correct behavior during the ride with your child.
- Ride proactively and defensively.
- Only lift children into the transport box or only allow children to enter the transport box if the
cargo bike is secured against rolling away.
- Place the cargo bike on the prop stand.
- Always use the safety belt to secure children in the transport box.
- Ensure that children do not allow any body parts to protrude from the transport box. Ensure that
children remain strapped in during their journey in the transport box. Ensure that the weight
distribution in the transport box is as balanced as possible.
