Matching BOB/BRITAX style for new travel system
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - BRITAX's B-SAFE Infant Car Seat will be available Sept. 1 in a new fashion matching BOB Strollers. BOB, the pioneer in high quality jogging strollers, joined the BRITAX family, the world's premier manufacturer of car seats, strollers and baby carriers in October 2011. Known for safety, the BRITAX B-SAFE infant car seat will be available in a black fabric to match BOB strollers.
Active parents can transform their BOB strollers into a matching travel system, ideal from birth up to 31.75 kilograms (70 pounds).* The BRITAX B-SAFE Infant Car Seat features Side Impact Protection — which includes deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPS foam to distribute crash forces and shield the child from vehicle intrusion — and can accommodate children up to 81.2 centimeters (32 inches) tall and weighing between 1.8 and 9.9 kilograms (4 and 22 pounds). Removable comfort pad, harness pads, and an extra-large canopy keep baby comfortable and safe. Premium, push-button lower connectors and an ergonomic carry handle make the seat easy to install and carry.
The B-SAFE infant car seat attaches to the stroller using the BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter for BRITAX (sold separately). Designed for convenient, quick installation and removal, the Infant Car Seat Adapter easily slides into, and out of, the built-in Accessory Adapters in the BOB stroller. This adapter accommodates all BRITAX Infant Car Seat designs. (For a quick video demonstration, click here.)
The BRITAX B-SAFE Infant Car Seat (MSRP (CAD) $229.99) and the BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter for BRITAX infant car seats (MSRP (CAD) $59) will be available Sept. 1 at multiple retail outlets and online. For more information about BRITAX and BOB, visit www.britax.ca and www.bobgear.com, or find both brands on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
With the addition of the BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter and compatible infant car seat, newborns can safely ride in the stroller for walking; do not jog or stroll off-road while using an infant car seat. BOB recommends that your child should be at least eight weeks old before riding in a BOB stroller without the infant car seat. For jogging or off-road stroller use, children should be at least eight months old.
