Stretch has many benefits, but the most important is the safety aspect. First, a little insight for you to get the context. Most parents say that they turn their kids forward facing around the age of 3-4 years. But did you know that the safest option is to be rear facing for even longer?
With this as a backdrop, we’ve put all our effort into making a seat that truly takes into account that it needs outstanding performance in crash tests even for children all the way to 7 years. Consumer insight has shown that an issue with rear facing seats is that the kids grow out of the seat due to their weight before they reach 125 cm. So we set a hairy goal of Stretch being able to both bear the weight of 36 kg and enough leg space for older children. No other car seat manufacturer has ever managed this before.
As we’ve made child car seats since 1963 we took all these years of experience and put it into the development of this one seat. The construction of the seat makes it possible to perform extremely well in crash tests. Even with the heaviest test doll. Its unique external frame bears the forces in a frontal crash. In addition, the spine of the seat shell is astonishingly rigid and will make sure your child is kept in a stable position in an impact. We understand that when choosing a car seat, the manufacturers promise of safety isn’t enough, so our proof is that Stretch has passed the world’s toughest crash test – the Swedish PLUS test (link to PLUS test article).
