SIP+ – Additional Side Impact Protection

The BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size was launched end of 2015, and with it a new innovation was born: the Side Impact Protection + (short: SIP+). Today – one year later – three BeSafe products are now including SIP+, which increases children’s safety in cars. SIP+ makes a difference and we will explain to you why.

What is SIP+?

SIP+ is an additional safety feature that is placed on the side of the seat. It is constructed to absorb energy and reduces the load on the child’s neck and head by up to an additional 20% in the event of a side impact.

How does it work?

SIP+ should be fitted onto the side of the seat that is closest to the car door. This way it reduces the distance between the seat and the door, thus shortening the movement that will take place in the event of a side impact. Less movement means less force on the child. In addition, the energy-absorbing SIP+ takes the load and works as an extra protection for your child.

Which products are including SIP+?

The BeSafe iZi Go Modular i-Size, iZi Modular i-Size, iZi Modular RF i-Size and iZi Kid X2 i-Size are delivered with SIP+, but from this autumn on SIP+ will also be included with the iZi Combi X4 ISOfix. SIP+ can additionally be bought as an accessory and can be used on the iZi Plus, iZi Comfort X3 and iZi Comfort X3 ISOfix to improve the side impact protection.

BeSafe’s Philosophy

With children and real life in focus we create the best conditions for our seats to perform. However, we will never be satisfied! New innovations are constantly developed to make our products even safer and even more user-friendly. If we find a way to increase children’s safety in cars, we will do it.

It is of course the parent’s ultimate responsibility to choose the right car seat for their child, based on age, car and family situation etc. However, it is our responsibility to make sure that our products deliver the highest levels of safety, every time, every day!
