An incredible amount happens in the first four years of your baby's life. Your tiny newborn learns to smile, crawl, talk and walk, makes friends, finds favourite activities and goes through eight full wardrobes of clothes. Sleepsuits, toys, purees, nappies and even pushchairs are discarded, but the Britax Römer DUALFIX i-SIZE car seat is designed to stay with you through every milestone along the way, from that first journey home from the hospital to all those I-spy filled trips with your chattering preschooler!
With a total of 12 recline positions forward and rear-facing, including an ergonomic lie-flat position ideal from birth, and extended leg room as your little one grows up, the brand-new i-SIZE version of the popular DUALFIX is designed to provide optimum comfort as well as safety at every stage.
Innovative features integrated into the DUALFIX i-SIZE
include superior side impact protection, implemented by a special steel
element inside the seat. This fitted SICT absorbs
energy in the event of a collision and simultaneously keeps your child
away from the impact. The patented Britax Römer Pivot Link System also
activates immediately should the worst happen,
directing the force first downwards into the vehicle seat and then
forward at a greatly reduced intensity, dramatically lessening the risk
of head and neck injury.
Parents can travel in complete confidence that the seat not only meets but exceeds the most up-to-date i-Size standards. Britax Römer has a well earned reputation for being at the forefront of safety advances, and the DUALFIX i-SIZE has been developed, extensively tested and manufactured in Germany, achieving approval only after rigorous and repeated trials in the company's state-of-the-art in-house crash test facility.
A height-adjustable support leg with a user-friendly indicator to confirm its correct positioning provides extra stability for the DUALFIX i-SIZE, minimising movement, while the rebound bar can be fitted at a range of angles to lie snugly against the vehicle backrest and also helps to prevent tilting in an impact, as well as giving up to 10% more leg room.
Many of the stand-out features in the Britax Römer DUALFIX i-SIZE serve a dual purpose, providing improved protection alongside additional comfort for your little one on the move. The deep, soft side wings are a padded cocoon that absorb some of the force from a side impact, while the V-shaped headrest is adjusted for a perfect fit and specially designed to control the movement of your child's head and keep it cushioned. The new soft neoprene performance chest pads also reduce movement and add luxury-level comfort to the five-point harness.
It is now universally accepted that travelling in a rear-facing car seat is safer for your little one. The DUALFIX i-SIZE allows your child to remain rear-facing right up to a height of 105cm, approximately 4 years of age. Britax Römer does recommend keeping your child rear-facing for as long as possible. However the seat's quick and simple 360-degree rotation feature provides parents with the option to forward-face their child if and when they choose.
Even if you prefer your child to remain rear-facing for the entire four years, the rotating car seat is a welcome innovation. You can get your sleeping baby, reluctant toddler or independent preschooler into and out of the car with ease and the process is far kinder on your back thanks to the 90-degree rotation feature.
As a final parent-friendly touch, the seat cover can be quickly removed without taking off the harness. Spilt drink or little accident? Whisk it off and throw it in the washing machine! Spare, summer and Thermo covers for the DUALFIX i-SIZE can also be purchased separately so your baby can always travel in comfort and style, whatever the journey.
The Britax Römer DUALFIX i-SIZE is available in a choice of nine colourways: Cosmos Black, Flame Red, Moonlight Blue, Wine Rose, Storm Grey, Olive Green, Mystic Black, Blue Marble and Sand Marble.
