The BRITAX FRONTIER 85 SICT Combination Harness-2-Booster Seat offers excellent safety features, multifunction capability, and an adaptable design to keep your child safe and comfortable for years to come. The seat serves as a forward-facing harnessed seat for children up to 85 pounds, and as a belt-positioning booster seat for children up to 120 pounds.
Offering both Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT) and True Side Impact Protection, the FRONTIER 85 SICT provides protection if you happen to face an unexpected side impact crash. Side Impact Cushion Technology, which is comprised of energy-absorbing cushions on either side of the exterior of the seat, reduces side-impact energy by 45 percent by diverting crash forces away from your child and providing extra protection for the adjacent passenger. The side impact cushions are designed to compress during a side impact crash, transferring crash energy away from the seat before it reaches your child. Additionally, True Side Impact Protection guards the head and limits injury by deflecting vehicle intrusion, absorbing impact, and keeping the neck and spine aligned.
The FRONTIER 85 SICT provides an advanced design for crash force management and absorption. The Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether features a staged-release tether webbing that securely anchors the top of the child seat to your vehicle at two points to slow forward movement, reduce crash forces, anchor the seat, and minimize forward rotation of the seat in the event of a sudden stop.
The energy-absorbing base and EPS foam liner are designed to absorb and distribute impact forces. In addition, the Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS) reduces forward head movement and offers increased protection for your child.
The FRONTIER 85 SICT is compatible with SecureGuard (sold separately), which works with the safety belt in booster mode to prevent the child from sliding under the lap-belt portion during impact, minimizing the risk of abdominal injury.
The tangle-free, five-point harness allows for 10 harness-height positions -- up to 20 inches in shoulder height -- and three buckle positions for a snug, comfortable fit, even as your child grows. You can also adjust the head restraint with one hand using the quick-adjust lever and easily change the harness shoulder height without disassembling the entire harness. Plus, the convenient front harness adjuster allows you to loosen or tighten the harness system easily.
The booster seat can be used in the forward-facing harnessed position for children starting at two years old and weighing 25 to 85 pounds (the highest capacity in five-point harness systems). As a belt-positioning booster, the seat is suited for children from 40 to 120 pounds.
Premium Lower LATCH Connectors allow for quick installation and feature a push-button for easy release. Color-coded belt guides indicate the path and positioning of the vehicle seat belt, further enhancing ease of installation. The FRONTIER 85 SICT also features an easy-to-remove cover that allows for easy cleaning without disassembling or uninstalling the car seat from your vehicle.
The BRITAX FRONTIER 85 SICT Combination Harness-2-Booster Seat is backed by a manufacturer's limited one-year warranty.
