Test Driving The New Urban iki Bike Seats



For a while now we’ve been saying how cool it would be to head out as family on a bike ride. We’re so lucky to live near two royal parks that are perfect for family rides but we’ve always been a little nervous about it. We always felt like child bike seats were such a faff, heavy and not easy to ride with especially when there is two kids involved! That was until we were kindly invited to the Urban iki bike event and were totally amazed at how easy and simple their child bike seats could be.


Urban Iki loves to bring some Iki in your life! With our roots in Japan, Iki as a part of Japanese culture, is close and dear to us. Beauty in everyday life is a part of the Iki feeling. That is why Urban Iki is about design. Not the complicated kind of design. But the refined, honest, original and functional one. Together with Dutch designers we created Urban Iki. And to make sure everybody can have some Iki in their life, we use our street smart to keep our products affordable


Urban iki have two types of bike seats rear and front row. We have gone for a front row seat for Emmie and rear for Max. That way we can have the opportunity to ride with both the kids on one bike, which would be so cool. Both seats have a safe and comfortable seat with a 5-point safety seat belt. Soft padding have been added on the shoulders and a waterproof cushion for extra comfort. The seats come in various pastel colours from pink to mint green. There’s also a really cool Japanese wave pattern on the outside of the soft shaped seat to complete the chic design. Footrests, foot straps and the safety buckle can be easily adjusted with one hand, leaving a spare hand to hold onto the bike.


Front Row Specifications

Rear Seat Specifications

We currently have our seats on order and I can honestly say I’ve never been so excited to get back on my bike for a ride. The kids are too which is amazing because I really want to be that family that rides together then stops for a picnic in the park. Isn’t that the dream!


*A big thank you to Urban iki for inviting myself and my family to your event.

    Thanks for the review and such detailed photos! The seats look very reliable and safe. I’m thinking of buying a backseat by next summer. According to the characteristics, it will fit perfectly for my four-years-old son.
