Toddler-centric MTB company Kids Ride Shotgun just upped the ante on its Shotgun Pro Child Bike Seat with the all-new Pro Handlebars to match. Kids Ride Shotgun updated their ride-along toddler seat last year with their new Pro model. The seat removed any contact from the frame and added quick releases to make it faster to add and remove the seat.
Now that same philosophy has been applied to the additional handlebar, giving your little one the full Pro setup.

The Pro seat is made to fit kiddos aged 2-5 so the bars feature kid-sized 19mm grips to match. While 355mm doesn’t sound that wide in terms of modern bars, they are for kid’s accessory bars. And since mountain bike bars have gotten wider, there should be plenty of room for these to sit on top.
The bars are about more than just giving your kid their own grip–Kids Ride Shotgun mentions they help kids focus on holding on rather than futzing with your brakes and dropper post levers.
Just like the seat, the bars include a quick release function to allow you to add or remove the setup based on the day’s riding. They also include a shim so you can use them on 31.8mm or 35mm handlebars. Notably, these will only work with stems up to 60mm wide, but they will work with both flat or riser bars.
KRS offers the shotgun seat with the handlebars included for $310 MSRP. Or, if you’re all stocked up on seats for your mini shredder, the brand also sells the handlebars separately for $70 MSRP.
