With the Britax Roundabout 55 - Silverlake convertible car seat in your back seat, safe rides start before you even start the car. The base's SafeCell Technology™ lowers the seat's center of gravity in a crash, counteracting a seated child's forward movement to reduce the risk of a head injury. Integrated steel bars strengthen the seat's connection to the vehicle, and the energy-absorbing Versa-Tether has a two-point attachment and staged-release tether webbing to further slow forward-movement.
Deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam offers superior side-impact protection, shielding and containing a child's head, neck, and body. They effectively distribute crash forces along with the secure, tangle-free five-point harness. High-density comfort foam, two buckle positions, an infant positioning insert, soft black and printed fabric upholstery, and rear- and forward-facing recline positions provide comfort - seat rear-facing children from 5 lbs. to 40 lbs. and forward-facing children from 20 lbs. to 55 lbs. Premium lower LATCH connectors make installation quick and simple, and built-in lock-offs ensure snug lap and shoulder belt installation. The anti-slip, contoured base grips and protects a vehicle seat, and harness holders keep the harness straps at the sides when you're placing a child in the seat. Certified for air travel.
