The Radian 65SL Convertible Car Seat, Granite (Model #16585) features two of the highest weight limits in the market--an impressive 65 pounds in the forward-facing position and 40 pounds when rear-facing. Framed with steel alloy for safety, the seat offers side-impact protection with aluminum-reinforced sides and energy-absorbing EPS foam. Plus, it installs easily, thanks to a SuperLATCH system with a market-leading capacity of 65 pounds.

For added safety, the seat is also equipped with a forward- and rear-facing tether system and is the only car seat in the market to offer SafeStop technology, an energy-absorbing harness system.
Easy Installation, Portability, and Convenience
Like many car seats, the Radian allows you to easily install it by engaging the seat's Latch connectors onto a vehicle's Latch bars, which can be found in vehicles built after 2001. For drivers of vehicles without Latch, the good news is that the seat can also be easily installed with the vehicle seatbelt. For cars with Latch, the seat's SuperLATCH system is a prominent feature that offers added convenience and increased safety.
What makes the Radian 65SL different? Typical Latch systems have limited weight capacities of 40-48 pounds. Once a child has reached this weight limit, instructions call for the caregiver to unlatch the seat and reinstall it using the car's seatbelt, a method that increases the likelihood of incorrect installations. The 65SL's SuperLATCH system extends that weight limit to 65 pounds. Beyond the added convenience, SuperLATCH also helps increase safety, as a Latch system is an easier installation method with less room for error than using the seatbelt method. Further easing installation is an Easy-Tite adjuster for firm fastening and rubber non-slip grips along the seat bottom to prevent car seat slippage.
Because safety is a priority to Sunshine Kids, the Radian not only meets and exceeds US mandated standards, but has also been tested to the more rigorous, yet voluntary NCAP standard which simulates more severe accidents.
Of particular convenience to daycare providers and parents of multiple children, the Radian's slim design fits three across in most vehicles, making it ideal for sedans and smaller SUVs. Plus, it still provides ample shoulder room for growing children. Yet another unique feature of this car seat, the Radian is the only convertible car seat on the market that folds flat, so you can store it away and take it along for travel.
Comfort Features for Growing Children
This innovative car seat will grow with your child from infancy to childhood and is designed with several features to ensure your child's comfort, whether you're driving across town to the babysitter's or across the country for the holidays. These comfort features include comfort foam padding, a long seat, and adjustable seat positions.
Especially pleasant for those long rides, the comfort foam padding around the seat and extended seat bottom combine for an extra comfortable fit. The forward facing dual recline positions offer the child the optimal recline angle of choice. Additionally, the five harness positions and three buckle positions make it easier than ever to customize the car seat to ensure your child is properly secured as he or she grows.
And featuring two of the highest weight limits in the market, this convertible car seat is suitable in the rear-facing position from 5 to 40 pounds. When children are old enough, they can be positioned in the forward-facing position up to a weight of 65 pounds. And for easy child-boarding, the seat is designed to sit low on the seat.
The car seat is covered with an easy-to-wipe, ultra-suede fabric that comes in neutral charcoal/grey to complement most vehicle interiors.

It's very narrow, which is great for a smaller car, but when the child falls asleep, he is bold upright, making his head sag forward. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Lucy L. Blaney
We saw this seat used in the back seat of a family of three kids all lined up in a row. No other seat is narrow enough to arrange this way in a typical sedan. Read morePublished on July 1, 2013 by Loren Haar
I have always loved these car seats but I didn't truly appreciate them until I was in an accident. These seats fit in the back of my small SUV three across with no problem at all. Read morePublished on January 2, 2013 by Joanne
Gives very good protection. Is built of steel, which I trust for protection more than fiberglass, but which, of course, adds a lot to the weight, so don''t plan on moving it... Read morePublished on December 10, 2012 by Burin
This seat is nice and big and comfortable, and the baby loves it. Unfortunately, the good news stops there. Read morePublished on January 3, 2012 by Eric Gramond
We were looking for a narrow seat given we have two other kids. This seat works great. Easy to install. Heavy duty (translates to heavy in weight, too). Read morePublished on December 2, 2011 by Mike C
We really do like our Sunshine Radian car seats- we've folded it, checked it as baggage- b/c car seats fly free! it is heavy, but I like it b/c it's narrow. Read morePublished on November 14, 2011 by E. Ranheim
We needed a car seat that was small enough to fit 3 in the back seat. We have a Subaru Forester which is on the smaller side. This fit perfectly next to our infant child seat. Read morePublished on November 8, 2011 by Gerard C. Williamson
I guess I should have checked the country of origin before purchasing, but I just assumed since it was a high price carseat that, like Britax, it would be made in the US. Read morePublished on November 3, 2011 by San Antonio Mommy
