In Germany, child seats have been compulsory since 1 April 1993. It states that children up to the age of twelve or a height of 150 cm may only be transported in a car in a restraint system that meets the requirements. A child seat should meet three requirements. It must be approved in Europe, fit the size and weight of your child and be correctly installed in your vehicle.
Only the best is good enough for you and are you looking for a comfortable and safe child car seat? Do you also value the fact that the manufacturing company is not just out to make a profit, but that it has the welfare and safety of children at heart? Then you should take a look at the child seat products from the BeSafe company.
BeSafe is synonymous with "be safe", which is evident in the company's philosophy. The company is known for its Reboader child seat systems. Long established in Scandinavian countries because of their safety, more and more parents in Germany are also recognising the benefits of this reboarder method.
The latest statistics show that in Scandinavia, no child under the age of four has died in a car accident while sitting in a Reboarder car seat. In Germany, on the other hand, the number of injuries among infants up to four years of age who changed from the infant carrier to the child seat and were placed in a forward-facing position increased. The conclusion of these evaluations shows that reboarders are five times safer.
The company BeSafe, whose full name is HTS BeSafe AS, is a Norwegian family business based in Krøderen, a small town about 100 kilometres from Oslo.
Founded in 1919 as a saddlery, over the decades the family business became increasingly oriented towards the automotive industry and began manufacturing safety products for cars. As early as 1963, BeSafe brought its first child seat onto the market. However, it consisted of a steel frame and only offered still sitting for the kids. The next generation of child seats was to serve the safety of the children. At the end of 1980, Kristian Torgersen and his team developed the reboarder child seat with the help of many accident statistics. Since then, it has been considered the safest in the world. Numerous studies have shown that this type of child transport reduces the pressure on the neck and cervical spine in the event of an accident. Today, the further development and construction of reboarders is the main focus of the BeSafe company. Today, HTS is represented in 40 countries and employs 800 people.
The company's car safety products include a wide range of products. From infant carriers, reboarder child seats to forward-facing car systems and pregnancy harnesses, you will find everything that benefits your safety and that of your child.
If you prefer a baby car seat for your newborn, then you have the choice between the iZi Go X1 and the iZi Go Modular. The iZi Go X1 has the highest possible safety standard and a chic design, in addition to a handy carry handle, thick padding and integrated sun canopy with sun protection factor 50+. Conveniently, you can place the shell in many common pram frames. You don't have to take out and move your sleeping child. Of course, the cover is washable. The installation in the car is very easy, as is the height adjustment of the straps. It is installed rear-facing in your car and you will have a lot of fun with this model from birth until your little one is about 12 months old.
You can use the BeSafe iZi Go Modular i-Size infant carrier until your child is about one year old. If you also install the iZi Modular i-size base station, then you have safety for your child with this system until the age of four. For babies up to one year of age, the infant carrier is simply attached to it backwards with a click. Then install the iZi Modular i-size, forward or rearward facing. Without the base station, the infant carrier can be fixed in place using the 3-point seat belt in your car. The additional padding in the head area, the side impact protection and the sun canopy with sun protection factor 50+ offer your baby comfort and the highest safety standard. This shell can also be used on your compatible pram.
You can see from the many awards that safety has not been skimped on here. The BeSafe iZi Go Modular i-Size baby car seat achieved the rating "Very Good" in the category Safety of Child Car Seats 2016 by ADAC and Stiftung Warentest. Furthermore, the British consumer institute Which? awarded the model the "Best Buy" seal.
Once your baby has outgrown the infant carrier that you used on the base station, you can easily continue to use the iZi Modular car seat on it. It can be attached both forwards and backwards. With seat reducers and the height-adjustable headrest, it adapts to the size of your child. A magnetic belt assistant ensures that your little one can sit comfortably in it. The seat clicks onto the iZi Modular i-Size base station in one easy step. The extension mechanism of the base station provides extra legroom when used rear-facing. Like the other transport systems, this child seat has side impact protection and can be your child's second home from the age of six months to four years.
The test ratings of the ADAC and Stiftung Warentest in May 2016 were "Good" and the TCS awarded it the distinction "highly recommended".
In January 2017, AutoBild magazine published an article on the advantages of reboarders, in which eight manufacturers were compared. The iZi Kid X2 i-Size was awarded as the safest reboarder. In 2016, Stiftung Warentest and ADAC awarded it a score of 1.1 in the group 1 to 4 years, which no other car seat had ever received in the entire history of testing. It also passed the Swedish Plus Test, the toughest crash test, with top marks.
The iZi Kid X2 i-Size is the successor model to the BeSafe iZi Kid X1 i-size. This one is already equipped with the new additional side impact protection material SIP+, which consists of energy-absorbing material and protects your child even better in case of side impact. With ISOfix, you can attach this model in no time at all. Like the other child seats, the seat can be adapted to the growing child with adjustable straps and height-adjustable headrest. Find the right resting position for your child, of which several are available. A seat reducer for little ones from six months is included. Use this seat until your child is four years old or weighs over eighteen kilograms. This guarantees that you are "on the safe side".
If your child weighs more than fifteen kilograms, but at the latest at the age of 4 - 5 years, it is time for your child to change to another child seat. BeSafe has the right solutions for this too. Until the end of the child seat era at around twelve years of age, use the iZi Up X3 or the iZi Up X3 fix model. Both models are easy to handle, must be installed forward facing and grow with your children. The BeSafe Up X3 is secured with your car's three-point harness and can be moved to a resting position on its own if your child gets tired. The headrest is reinforced with energy absorbing EPS for good side impact protection. The backrest reaches up to a height of 150 cm. The weight of your child should not exceed thirty-six kilograms.
The iZi Up X3 Fix differs from the iZi Up X3 in that it has the advantage of being installed with ISOfix. Thanks to ISOfix, the seat is firmly anchored in the car and remains there in the event of an accident. When installed with ISOfix, the iZi Up X3 Fix protects your child with SIR side impact rotation, which turns the seat away from the point of impact in the event of a side impact accident. The child seat does not provide side impact protection when using the 3-point harnesses in the car without ISOFix fixation.
BeSafe has even thought about the unborn babies that are still growing in the womb. For your safety and comfort, as a pregnant woman when driving, as well as for the protection of the unborn baby, BeSafe produces special pregnancy harnesses. You will notice how relaxing driving can be the first time you use a BeSafe Pregnant or a Pregnant iZi fix. These harnesses influence the course of the belt in that the lap belt runs under the abdomen. This eliminates the risk of pressure from the belt on your tummy and protects your baby from injury in the event of a collision. The BeSafe Pregnant is attached to the front seats of the car by passing the attachment strap around the lower end of the backrest. You simply attach the Pregnant iZi Fix with the fastening strap or connect it to the ISOfix anchorage.
In addition, BeSaf has many practical accessories for you. From rain, sun and backrest protectors to summer covers for the infant carriers. The rear-view mirror is useful so that you can always see your little one in the rear-facing seat.
