Why We Love the Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi Child Bike Seat

If you want to make your child a part of your cycling adventures, opting for a kids' bike seat is likely the easiest and most cost-effective choice. You’ll want a seat that’s got a stable, dependable feel while the bike is in motion and that’s comfortable and safe for your little one. One of our top picks that checks all those boxes is the Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi. This frame-mounted rear child bike seat is one of the best in class for safety, comfort, durability, and style.

Why We Love It

The Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi child bike seat has a quick-release frame-mount system. Compared to some of the other top child bike seats on the market, we think this one is simpler to attach and easier to transfer from bike to bike. If you’re planning to frequently rotate between riding with and without the seat, we’d definitely advise this model over others. 


Lightweight with a low center of gravity, the Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi bike seat won’t interfere with the adult rider’s balance. It also has big air vents to help keep your little one’s back cool in warm weather and a soft, cushy foam pad for extra rear-end comfort.

Parents also love the unique, child-proof magnetic buckle and the foot straps that do an incredible job of keeping your child’s feet safely in place. And of course, since it’s designed by Thule, you can rest assured that the quality and functionality are top-of-the-line.

What Parents Are Saying About the THULE Yepp Nexxt Maxi Child Bike Seat

Moms and dads are crazy about this seat’s exceptional mounting system, which allows you to easily transfer the seat between bikes. Take a look at what else parents are loving about the Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi child bike seat.

“We bought the Yep Nexxt Maxi a couple of months ago for my two-year-old daughter. She absolutely loves it. The construction is solid and the frame mounting provides a good amount of shock absorption. I really like it too. Unlike the front-mounted seat we have before, it has no impact on my riding style and does not interfere with stopping and starting when riding in traffic. The harness is great, but you have to make sure you get it tight around the legs before snugging around the shoulders, or the shoulders can become loose as the webbing around the legs tightens. The foot holders are fantastic. They hold tight during the ride and prevent errant kicking and are easy to secure and remove.”

“I’ve been buying Thule products for years and have come to expect great things from them. These seats live up to my expectations of Thule. I bought two seats: one frame mount and one rack mount. We carry a 3-year-old (30 lb) and one-year-old (20 lb) with total confidence. Easy to adjust quickly for different size children and they are always secure and comfortable. I highly recommended this seat for carrying any child below the weight limit.”

“Both of my daughters loved their rides on the Yepp! This seat is comfortable and safe because you can make adjustments to fit your child. It was easy to install, just make sure your bike fits the configurations of the seat and mount. Having our kids on the back of our bikes helped instill a love of bike riding from an early age. Ride on!”

The Verdict

This lightweight and safe rear-frame-mounted child bike seat features a contemporary design that provides premium comfort for your child. Overall, it’s a great investment that will allow you to enjoy hours of safe, comfortable cycling adventures with your little one.
