any time. Should you have the need of assistance, please conntact your dealer.

For Your Safety

Only use this bicycle child's seat for its intended purpose, i.e. only mount it above the bike's rear axle by means of the included mounting parts and only use it for the transport of children.

The seat is suitable for children who can already sit alone (about 9 months), and may be loaded with a maximum weight of 22 kg including luggage. (Check regularly with the age of the child).

This child's bicycle seat is not suitable for fully sprung bicycles.

The child’s seat can be used for bicycles with a minimum wheel diameter of 26 inches; the diameter of the frame tube must be 28, 30, 32, 35 or 40 mm.

Any other use is inadmissible and may even be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by unauthorized use.

The bicycle used must be safe and correspond to the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations valid in your country. Please make enquiries if there are regulations concerning the transport of children.

If you have a special bicycle structure please ask your dealer if your bike is suitable for the use of a child's seat.

The bicycle must be suited for accepting such additional loads. Furthermore, the admissible total weight of the bicycle including child and child's seat must not be exceeded. If necessary, ask your bicycle manufacturer or supplier regarding the bicycle's carrying capacity.

If you transport your bicycle on a luggage rail on your car, you should dismount the child's seat from your bicycle to avoid exceeding the carrying capacity of the luggage rail.

When attaching the seat to a bicycle that has a saddle stem with suspension please take into account the distance between the seat and the suspension spring. You should ensure that the child’s fingers cannot reach the spring thus avoiding the danger of injury.

Please note that the riding behaviour of the bicycle changes when the child’s seat is used (irrespective of child being transported or not). Owing to the higher centre of gravity the bicycle's behaviour may change unfavourably and the bicycle's dirigibility may be impaired. For this reason, ride carefully – in particular with regard to braking and evading manoeuvres. Also avoid riding with one hand only.

Pay attention that the child does not handle any objects (e.g. toys) which might get caught in the wheels. Clothes or extremities of the child should never be able to get caught in turning parts or in the brake and transmission system.

This should be checked regularly as the child grows older.

Protect your child from sharp edges of your bicycle, from worn cables and other parts that might lead to injuries.

Before going on a ride, and during breaks, you should check that the seat is firmly attached, and also check all components for potential damage and loose connections (screws, connections, safety belts etc.).

Attention: Only transport the child with the safety belt correctly and firmly fastened and the foot straps closed. Have a check during breaks that those safety devices are still in place.

Even if no child is carried, close the seat belt to avoid it getting caught in turning parts or catching on items that are passed during the ride.

Pay attention to suitable and sufficiently warm clothing of your child. Children who are sitting still normally cool down faster than the rider.

We recommend that adult and child wear suitable helmets.

Adjust the headrest so that its upper edge matches the child's ear level.

If in doubt or if you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact your specialized dealer.

Attention: Do not attach additional luggage to the child's seat. If necessary, use a carrier for the front axle in order to obtain a balanced load. Please note that the carrying capacity of bicycle and child's seat are not exceeded.

Attention: The seat must not be modified. The child’s bicycle seat meets all required safety regulations. Repair works done by non-experts and alterations to the construction (dismounting original parts, attachment of parts without approval etc.) may cause harm to the user.

Attention: Please note that the riding behaviour of the bicycle may change with a child in the seat, especially


GB USA Assembly Instructions

regarding balance, steering and braking. Ask the child to sit quietly. Sudden weight transfers by the child may considerably affect your safety during the ride.

Attention: Never park the bicycle with the child still in its seat.

Attention: Do not use the seat if one of its components is defective. Damaged components may jeopardize your or the child’s safety. Before going on a ride you should check all components for potential damage and loose connections (screws, connections, safety belts etc.). Damaged or worn components must be replaced immediately. Only use original KETTLER spare parts.

Attention: In case of extreme weather conditions please check if the seat can be used by the child, as for example the seat may become very hot when there is strong solar radiation, or if the temperature is far below freezing point the skin may stick to the seat or its components.


The child’s seat must be positioned such that it is not in contact with the luggage carrier. The distance between luggage carrier and tube shackle must be min. 25 mm.

Fix the tube shackle parallel to the ground. This results in a seat which is slightly inclined towards the rear such that the child may not slide out of the seat. The seat back is slighty inclined to the rear.

The load centre (marked by a red point) may only be within 10 cm behind the wheel hub (explained in detail below).

In case of saddles with uncovered springs the latter have to be covered as a protection against bruises (e. g. art. nr. 08947-690).

Further to that the rear wheel is provided with an additional cover on the spokes or a protective device to prevent dresses from getting mingled with the spokes.

Tighten all screws with a torque of approx. 6 Nm. Check the tight fit of all screwed connections after assembly.

Please check whether all parts of the bike operate correctly with the set fitted in place (e.g. steering and brakes).

Service and maintenance

Always use environmentally friendly substances, never aggressive or caustic ones, for cleaning and servicing the child’s bicycle seat.

If necessary you may also clean the safety belts. In this case it is especially important not to use aggressive substances! Usually weak washing-up water or a mild detergent will be sufficient.

If seat or clothes are damp the colour of the seat may possibly mark pale coloured clothes due to friction.


If you want to attach the seat to another bicycle, you can order a second carrier for the child’s seat. (item no. 8947-633).

To secure the child’s seat from theft, a cylinder lock can be inserted into the seat support bracket. The lock (type K.01.32.G1) is not supplied with the seat. The lock is obtainable from: Firma P.C. Fischer, Kaiserstraße 126, D- 58300 Wetter/Ruhr, tel. (0) 23 35/42 64, fax (0) 23 35/58 46
