  • Growing families regularly require multiple car seat configurations and at times there may be a need for parents or caregivers to install upto 3 car seats across the rear seat of a car, often in smaller to midsize cars. Using a car seat from birth means it should offer protection especially in the event of a side impact, around the area of the torso, to protect the head, chest and vital organs of the baby. We believe safety in the event of an impact, should never be compromised. Child car seats are safer when designed for specific ages and stages.

  • Around the area of the chest & vital organs we designed blow moulded air cushions with a flat surface to ensure narrow overall width of the car seat without compromising internal seat space. The rear surface of the air cushion incorporates inwardly directed recess features. During side impact, the front surface collapses toward the recess features, these then work as a series of impact attenuators, to collectively deform under the load of the impact, resulting in the air cushion collapsing over a longer period of time. The amount of energy transferred to the occupant of the restraint is reduced.

  • By introducing Torso Side Impact Cushion Technology™ on a narrow and compact car seat, we are able to offer a solution that meets a real practical need. Being able to transport children or their friends, without compromising on safety, internal space or comfort, will contribute to the use of safer, rearward facing for longer child restraints in multiple configurations for as long as possible, whatever the size of car used. The Graphene is specifically designed to deliver optimal safety for 0-4 years in smaller cars and multiple configurations for growing families.

  • • Rear facing for longer – the child can remain rearward facing until they are 30 months old • Active Head Restraint™ (AHR™) – deep side wings that shield and contain the child’s head in a side impact crash. It includes an EPS layer to absorb energy in a crash and reduce further potential injury • ISOFIX Compatible - ISOFLEX™ connectors allow for installation to vehicles with ISOFIX low anchorages. ISOFIX use ensures an easier installation. • Thermo5™ Bamboo Fabric – High performance fabric with Bamboo Charcoal delivering premium comfort your baby or child deserves • Hassle Free Harness – the harness automatically repositions the shoulder straps when the headrest height is adjusted • Easy Remove Trim – the entire trim can be removed for cleaning without the need to remove the harness • Recline positions – Toddler mode includes recline or upright positions for added comfort. • EZ-Buckle – The harness buckle is retained in a forward position and prevents the child from sitting on the buckle when boarding.
