When you’re whizzing around town with baby, you need safe and comfortable travel gear you can rely on. Plus, it needs to be easy enough to use to save you from silently screaming into your handbag when you can’t seem to get the car seat to click into it’s base.
The BeSafe iZi Modular Family Package, AED3,593/OMR359.3, which is fast becoming one of our best sellers, takes the stress out of travelling with tots in tow. The package consists of an ISOfix compatible base, plus one baby and one toddler car seat to accommodate your growing child. It’s got loads of great features, including an extendable base module to allow more legroom for the child, meaning kids aged up to four (105cm tall) can travel rear-facing.
We asked the experts at BeSafe to address the four most common requirements parents have when it comes to investing in a travel system and why the iZi Modular Family Package is a wise choice.
I want my kit to meet the highest safety standards.
Safety is the number one priority for the majority of parents when choosing a car seat so this was our focus when developing the iZi Modular concept. We didn’t only want the product to perform at is best in test labs, but also in real life situations. Indeed, while the BeSafe iZi Modular already performs superbly in crash tests and meets the stringent requirements of the new EU standard R-129 (i-Size), we wanted more than that. That’s why both BeSafe iZi Go Modular i-Size and iZi Modular i-Size feature extra side impact protection that reduces the load on your child’s neck by an additional 20 percent.
I want something that’s easy to use in everyday life.
We understand that parents are always on the move and require products that are adapted to suit an active and mobile lifestyle with products that are not only safe, but are easy to move between cars.
The iZi Modular i-Size base is easy to mount with ISOfix featuring clear indicators that show when it’s fitted correctly. The car seat is then attached to the base in a single motion – simply click it in and you’re ready to go!
Having a car seat that’s separate from the base makes it light enough to handle and move between cars. If you’ve got two cars in your family, simply install one base for each car and then move the same seat between both cars. This saves you both money and makes life a little bit easier too.
I want to be able to use it for years to come.
When evaluating which car seat to purchase, you want to make sure you get the most for your money, which includes being able to use the kit for as long as possible.
The iZi Modular concept offers a complete solution from newborn up to four years of age, as you can use the same base both seats. We recommend that children stay rear facing for as long as possible – at least until age four. The iZi Modular is designed to grow with your child with an adaptable front brace to save space in your car when it’s not needed. This can can also provide more legroom for your child as he or she grows.
I want my child to feel comfortable.
A happy, comfortable child makes for a calmer driver and, ultimately, a safer drive. With this in mind, both iZi Go Modular and iZi Modular features a thicker and softer textiles and a padded five-point safety harness. Extra cushions help position the child correctly and give your child increased support.
The iZi Modular sleeping position can also easily be adjusted with one hand during the ride, which further increases the level of comfort for your child. This also prevents your baby’s head from falling forward.
Until what age can kids travel rear facing in the BeSafe iZi Modular Family Package?
