Since I cannot mark as duplicate as the answer is not accepted or upvoted I am copying the answer from Carlos Iribar here:

Record Type selection in $A.get("e.force:createRecord") in lightning

Currently, it's not possible select a record type in the createRecord component. You can create a dropdown or something with the record types options and then call the createRecord component passing the record type.


var createRecordEvent = $A.get("e.force:createRecord");
        "entityApiName": "Contact",
        "recordTypeId": ""

This a dropdown example for select the record type

<div class="source-center-slds" >
        <div class="slds-p-around--x-large">
            <ui:inputSelect class="slds-select_container myselector"  label="{!'Select ' + v.label +  ' Record Type: '}" aura:id="levels">
                <aura:iteration items="{!v.types}" var="item">
                    <ui:inputSelectOption class="slds-select" text="{!item.Id}" label="{!item.Name}"/>      
            <button class="slds-button slds-button--neutral slds-not-selected slds-m-top--medium" onclick="{!c.create}">New</button>

v.types is an array with the record types values
