Designed for use in either the rear-facing or forward-facing positions, the RECARO ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat offers multiple safety features such as side-impact protection, a head restraint, and a vehicle belt lock-off mechanism (forward-facing). Plus, an ergonomic shell structure, breathable mesh fabric, and easy-to-use harness and head restraint adjusters provide comfort and convenience.
Racing-Inspired Side Impact Protection
Tested to international standards, the RECARO ProRIDE offers an intelligent design that protects a child during a side-impact incident. The car seat's enhanced head wings shield the head and face while a head rest limits neck movement. For added safety, reinforcements at the sides, hips, and thighs help stabilize the torso and pelvis areas.
EasyAdjust, No Re-Thread Safety Harness System
The EasyAdjust, five-point harness can be customized to properly accommodate your growing child. It adjusts with a simple turn of a knob without the hassle of rethreading any straps. TrueLock belt lock-off prevents any slippage from your vehicle's seat belt when used forward-facing. With an upper weight limit in the forward-facing position of up to 65 pounds, this car seat has one of the highest weight capacities for any convertible car seat with a five-point harness system.
Safety Stripe System
The RECARO Safety Stripe System is a racing-inspired white stripe that is clearly visible on the outside edge of the five-point harness. This stripe is designed as an easy alert to parents that a twist could occur, or has begun, thus preventing a safety hazard.
Built-In LATCH System for Added Stability
Designed with a push-button LATCH system, the car seat is easy to secure to your vehicle. The car seat offers a universal top tether system as an added anchor. The rear-facing recline lever allows you to adjust the seat to best fit your vehicle's backseat.
Comfortable, Ergonomic Seat Molds to Your Child's Shape
Featuring an ergonomic shell structure that offers support for your child, the car seat is pleasant and cozy for short errands or long road trips. The harness system features soft pads to make it more comfortable. The head restraint is designed with protective and comfortable automotive PUR foam. For comfort and safety, the soft, cushiony car seat is made with expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) that absorbs external forces.
Comfortable, Soft Seat and Convenient Pockets
For no-fuss care and maintenance, the ProRIDE car seat comes in a variety of easy-to-clean fabrics and colors. All cover materials include mesh fabric that provides a superior air circulation system to keep your child cool and comfortable during the ride. The car seat offers storage pockets to keep the loose ends of harness belts tucked neatly out of the way.
This car seat meets all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for Child Restraint Systems (FMVSS 213) and Flammability of Interior Materials (FMVSS 302). It is also certified for air travel when used with the plane's seat belt.
