Just last week, Britax announced the arrival of their new advanced combination booster seat equipped with Side Impact Cushion Technology™ – the FRONTIER® 85 SICT Combination Harness-2-Booster™ Seat. This new seat has taken all of the great features from the Frontier XT and added in this great technology, thus reducing crash force energy by 45 percent. The seat also features BRITAX True Side Impact Protection® technology which 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.
FRONTIER® 85 SICT offers the highest harnessed weight and height capacity available, allowing children to remain in a five-point harness up to 85 pounds with a seated shoulder height of up to 20 inches. It is great for children who are ready to graduate into a booster, but still require the safety that a five-point harness provides. The seat is suitable for children who are at least two years of age and 25 lbs, and as a belt-positioning booster, the seat can accommodate children up to 120 pounds and 65 inches tall.
The FRONTIER 85 SICT comes in three fashions and will be available at independent and mass retailers in June 2011. The suggested retail price is $339.99.
