There have been big leaps forward in the car seat world in recent years, with dramatic advances in protection, comfort and functionality - and Cybex has been at the forefront. The Cloud Z i-Size infant carrier is in many ways the epitome of these developments and its unique features and impressive crash test results have now seen it rewarded with a Which? Best Buy.
The accolade - by no means the first to be awarded to a Cybex car seat - recognises the "excellent overall crash protection, spacious seat [and] practical features" provided by the Cloud Z, along with the fact that it is "easy to install, simple to use, [and the] instructions and warnings are clear".
We've also had the Cybex Cloud Z in to review at Pushchair Expert and awarded it a maximum 5 out of 5 stars.
When used with the Cybex Base Z, the Cloud Z can be rotated 180 degrees to make getting baby in an out of the car so much easier - the only infant carrier currently offering the back-saving benefits of a spin seat!
Not only that, but when used on a pushchair chassis (and the Cloud Z is compatible with a wide array of different prams to give the convenience of a travel system), the seat can be moved into an ergonomic lie-flat position. This makes it suitable for even a newborn's spine and airways, meaning it can safely be used instead of a carrycot on days out.
As an added bonus, you get all these advantages for longer as the Cloud Z, following the i-Size standards of height rather then weight, is approved for babies up to 87cm tall - or around 18 months old.
A new optional addition to the Cloud Z and other Cybex car seats is the clever SensorSafe system, a smart chest clip that is attached to the harness of the seat and sends immediate safety alerts to your smartphone if it isn't securely fastened, as well as warning you if your child has been in the seat too long or is too hot or cold, providing an installation checklist and more.
We'll be giving a live demonstration of the Cloud Z on our Facebook page at 11am on Wednesday 26th June, showing up close the features that have earned it that Best Buy, answering all your questions and GIVING ONE AWAY!
Join in with the chat during the live event or watch and comment on the video afterwards, and you could win a Cloud Z with SensorSafe and Base Z, worth £459.90.
