SIP+ – NEW INNOVATION FOR CHILD SAFETY
When we at BeSafe designed our latest car seat ‘iZi Modular’, safety was obviously our major focus. Guided by the new ‘i-Size’ Regulations we set ourselves the challenge to exceed the very highest standards, especially in the area of side-impact protection.
We at BeSafe have always tested our car seats for side-impact, although this has never been a requirement under the previous regulations ‘ECE’. This is why we were able to launch one of the world’s first i-Size approved car seats, the iZi Kid-Size so soon after the introduction of the Regulations in 2013.
During the development of iZi Modular through numerous tests we identified that side-impact protection could be enhanced still further. The result is our new, innovative solution ‘SIP+’, Side Impact Protection +.
SIP+ is an energy absorbing cushion that is easily clicked directly onto the car seat to reduce the distance to the car door. If a collision occurs SIP + will absorb the energy and reduce the movement of the car seat. This greatly reduces the load that the child is exposed to.
We at BeSafe never stop developing new products. We are constantly learning new things, and our product development is constantly moving forward. When we identify a new safety innovation we try to implement it on as many other seats in our range too.
Crash tests have shown that SIP+ also optimizes safety on some of our other models. Based on this, all of our i-Size approved child seats will be available with SIP + as standard.
In recognition of this, we will also change the name of our current product iZi Kid X1 i-Size to iZi Kid X2 i-Size. The same car seat as before but now with SIP +.
