Side Impact Protection System Diverts Crash Forces
The BRITAX Side Impact Protection system includes a rigid shell with deep sidewalls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam to contain your child's head and body and divert crash force energy while creating a barrier against possible intruding objects. This system also protects your child's head and chest.
SafeCell Technology for Advanced Protection
The base of the ROUNDABOUT 55 includes SafeCell Technology comprised of SafeCells, an engineered material designed to compress in a crash. This compression lowers the center of gravity to counteract forward rotation of the seat, helping to minimize the risk of head injury during a collision.
Located in the sides of the seat shell, integrated steel bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and prevent forward flexing of the seat during a crash to reduce the risk of head injury.
In the event of a sudden stop, the Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether strap restricts forward movement and reduces crash forces with patented staged-release webbing and a 2-point attachment. This webbing securely anchors the top of your child seat to your vehicle in either rear- or forward-facing positions.
Tangle-Free Harness and Other Comfort Features
The tangle-free, five-point harness allows for multiple height positions and two buckle positions for a snug, comfortable fit as your child grows. High-density comfort foam provides premium comfort, while rear- and forward-facing recline options help your child relax on the journey. You can also use an infant positioning insert (sold separately) to optimize fit for small infants.
User-Friendly Features and Airplane-Approved Design
The ROUNDABOUT 55 takes the guesswork out of installation thanks to a range of convenience features. An anti-slip, contoured base grips and protects the vehicle seat, while harness holders prevent straps from getting in the way when you're putting your child in the seat. Premium lower LATCH connectors install quickly and release with a push of a button. For peace of mind, built-in lock-offs provide a secure installation when using the vehicle lap and shoulder belt.
The ROUNDABOUT 55 has a durable cover that can be removed for easy cleaning. It's also approved for airplane travel.
