The iZi Modular A X1 i-Size features a new type of harness – the Active Retract Harness™ – and is now available as a pilot launch in Norway and Germany.
A new seat in the iZi Modular concept
When moving from the baby seat to the toddler seat of the BeSafe iZi Modular concept, parents in Germany and Norway can now choose a new variant of the toddler seat: the iZi Modular A X1 i-Size.
This new seat with the “A” in the name is almost identical to the iZi Modular X1 i-Size, which is available world wide. But in addition, it features the Active Retract Harness™. This never-seen-before harness features an advanced retractor construction inside the seat, which continuously pulls in the belts. That way, parents simply push up the belts inside the shoulder pads for a tight and secure fit.
Studies show that almost 50% of toddlers are not buckled up correctly
Research shows that 49.3% of children in toddler seats are not having tight belts, and in 63% of these cases the misuse is classified as serious*. That is why we have together with our trusted partner Holmbergs developed the iZi Modular A X1 i-Size and the Active Retract Harness™, aiming to help parents to ensure a safe and correctly fitted buckle for the child.
As a pilot launch, iZi Modular A X1 i-Size is now available in Norway and Germany. As this harness is so unique, we are curious to see how parents perceive this new belt system and want to learn from their experiences.
