Research has proven that this protects developing little necks and spines up to 5 times more than forward facing. However, if your child prefers to travel in a forward facing position, this can be achieved (from 9 months) quickly and easily with just the push of a button. Conforming to the new i-Size testing certification (ECE R129/00) and adopting the exclusive Tri-Protect, the headrest offers 3 layers of security and uses Intelli-Fit memory foam and Guard Surround Safety for optimum side impact protection for the reinforced steel shell. The i-Anchor also features a rebound bar and an energy absorbing area on the base to protect children in the event of front or rear impact. The padded newborn insert ensures an ideal fit for smaller / younger babies and can be removed as your child grows. The headrest is height adjustable and the harness adjusts (along with the headrest) with the use of just one hand, eradicating the need for tricky re-threading every few months. Installed in the car with the i-base advance (included), the car seat heads a new generation of car seat safety, protecting your precious cargo from their very first ride to their first day of school. With a quick and easy set-up using the IsoFix mounting points in your car for rock solid installation, this innovative base provides 7 recline positions without the need for re-installation. Complete with support leg which features multiple shock absorption layers along the leg and within the base itself. Colour indicators confirm correct installation of base and support leg and confirm correct installation of your chosen car seat to the base.
