About Child Car Seat Group Reboarder
Your child's head accounts for about 1/3 of the total body weight in the first years of life and the neck muscles are not yet properly developed. Since the neck has to hold the entire weight of the head in a frontal collision, your child is best seated facing backwards. In a rear-facing position, the car seat supports the neck and head in a frontal collision. The child doesn't mind riding in a rear-facing car because he or she is almost more aware of the surroundings when sitting backwards than when sitting forwards. Looking for top brands? Of course you will find these brands in our shop!
What is important when buying a reboarder?
- Reboarders are usually fitted with several attachment points. Check that this is possible for your car (vehicle type list).
- Reboarders can take up more space because they are rear-facing. Be sure to test the space available in your car first.
- Make sure the seat fits ergonomically so that your child is properly supported.
- If the seat has been developed according to the latest ECE R129 i-Size regulation, your child must be able to ride in a rear-facing position until at least 15 months of age.
The seat must be marked with one of the two car seat standards: either ECE R44/04 or ECE R129 I-Size.
Do not use a group 1 reboarder car seat for longer than 6-7 years.
Use a reboarder rear-facing as long as possible (max. up to 105 cm).
