CYBEX Pallas G i-SIZE – The World’s First i-SIZE Group 1/2/3 Shield Seat

Written by Tim Barnes-Clay

CYBEX, the baby brand renowned for its safety, award-winning car seats, luxurious pushchairs and baby carriers, has launched a brand-new i-Size impact shield car seat, designed to provide over 10 years of safety.

Suitable from over 15 months (a minimum of 76cm) to approximately 12 years (up to 150cm or 50kg,) the car seat grows with your child to provide optimum support, superior protection and comfort at each stage of their development.

Features

Tested to the UN R129/03 latest standard, the Pallas G i-SIZE is a new addition to the CYBEX gold range and is packed full of safety and functionality. The top three features include:

More than 10 years of usability – your child is protected by an impact shield until they grow to 21kg (at least 105cm tall). The impact shield is then removed, and the seat is secured by the vehicle seatbelt until they reach approximately 12 years old.

Over 40% less strain on the neck – the impact shield helps reduce the risk of neck injuries in a frontal collision when compared with a harness system. In a head-on collision, the child rolls forward over the impact shield which acts in a similar way to an airbag, with impact force distributed across its large surface area.

Secures your child safely in seconds – the integrated adjustable impact shield secures your child easily, quickly and reliably, with research showing that impact shields have a significantly lower error rate than harness systems. Featuring a convenient buckle system, there’s no need for parents to lean over or struggle with a seatbelt.

Additional Safety

This brand-new car seat comes equipped with additional safety features including:

  • ISOFIX and top tether installation ensure the seat is easily and securely installed. The added top tether provides additional anchorage for increased safety and stability. Both feature visual indicators to confirm that the car seat is installed and ready to go.
  • A patented three-position reclining headrest which prevents a child’s head from tipping forward while sleeping.
  • Linear Side-impact Protection System (L.S.P) which reduces the forces of an impact from a side-impact collision by approximately 25%.

Plus, it’s not just safety that this car seat offers – the Pallas G i-SIZE has an Air Ventilation System offering cooling airflow, and a one-hand seat recline making it easier for parents to recline the seat to a comfortable sleeping position. The Pallas G i-SIZE comes in eight colours and is available at retailers nationwide now. RRP – £264.95.
