Britax is about to launch a new, updated line of car seats called G3. These convertibles will offer visible and clearly labeled safety and convenience features, along with new technologies such as the HUGS Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology and the EZ-Buckle System.
HUGS chest pads are affixed to the back of car seat shell to ensure that they are properly positioned on the buckled child. SafeCell padding on the chest pads, identified by their honeycomb design, are engineered to compress to manage energy and create resistance to the forward movement of a child in the event of a crash.
The EZ-Buckle System keeps the buckle in a convenient, easy-to-reach forward position, making boarding a child faster and simpler. Also new is better labeling to identify BRITAXs Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether.
Along with these new features also comes a new car seat, the Pavilion (above), which accommodates a child up to 70lbs.
