Britax Canada: New Frontier XT Combination Harness-2-Booster
Canadians rejoice! Britax has introduced The FrontierTM XT Combination Harness-2-BoosterTM, a new combination booster seat that offers the maximum harnessed weight and height capacity in the industry.
Along with it’s True Side Impact Protection, this booster is designed to keep children in a five-point harness as long as possible. It helps to safely graduate children who are a minimum of 2 years old (and a weight of 25 pounds) up to 29.5 kilograms (65 pounds) with a seated shoulder height of up to 50.8 centimeters (20 inches). As a belt-positioning booster, the seat can accommodate children up to 54.5 kilograms (120 pounds) and 165 centimeters (65 inches) tall. That irritating twisting and sliding which is so common with car seats is preventable thanks to the cobble weave design with sewn buckle stops. It also offers a total of 10 harness positions and three buckle strap positions in order to accommodate the higher height limit and provide a secure fit.
“The True Side Impact Protection technology on the Frontier XT includes deeper side walls, and works to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion, contain the head and body, and keep the head, neck and spine aligned. This is important because one in four of all motor vehicle crashes that involve children occur from the side, and these crashes result in a significantly higher injury rate than front or rear crashes.”
The Frontier XT includes a number of parent-favorite features. These include: a quick-adjust head restraint, no-rethread harness, color-coded vehicle belt guides, Versa Tether®, Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™) and premium push-button lower connectors. The seat also offers big, comfortable armrests, dual cup holders, and a durable, washable cover.
Pictured in Canyon, this seat comes in three additional colors, Pink Sky, Rushmore and Red Rock and will be available at independent and mass retailers in March 2010.
