You may not be a NASCAR driver, but the Recaro Performance Racer Convertible Car Seat still protects your child like one. This superior design is racing inspired and tested to international standards, shielding the five vulnerable areas during a crash: the head, face, neck, torso, and pelvis. While the PUR foam headrest limits neck movement and the enhanced side wings shield the head and face, the reinforced sides help stabilize the torso and pelvis by protecting the sides, hips, and thighs, for full-body side-impact protection. Even the two cup holders offer added safety, doubling as anti-rebound protection, absorbing and distributing crash forces more effectively upon impact while reducing the rotation of the car seat to create a safer environment for your child.
The HERO harness helps ensure that there are no twists that will compromise your child's comfort or safety and positions the shoulder pads to appropriately fit the neck, head, and shoulders. And this is doubly guarded against with the Safety Stripe System, which helps you quickly and confidently track the path of the straps through the five-point harness. But safety also means comfort in this car seat, since a precise fit is a comfortable fit. The harness and headrest are easily adjusted simultaneously, to accommodate for your growing child, with the simple twist of a knob and without having to rethread straps. And the CoolMesh fabric, built-in shell air vents, and Cloud Comfort Memory Foam ensure further that your kiddo will ride comfy and cool, whether you're running errands around town or on a long road trip. Installing this car seat is a cinch with either the push-button LATCH and Top Tether system or the TrueLock belt lock-off. For no-fuss care and maintenance, this car seat comes in a variety of easy-to-clean fabrics and colors.
