February 16, 2021 - Next Generation of Britax® Infant Car Seats Is Roomier. Softer. Better.
The B-Safe® Gen2, B-Safe® Gen2 FlexFit and B-Safe® Gen2 FlexFit+ infant car seats combine trusted Britax safety with more convenience for parents and comfort for growing infants.
FORT MILL, S.C. – February 16, 2021: Britax Child Safety, Inc., U.S. manufacturer of car seats and child passenger safety technology leader, is pleased to introduce the next generation of newly enhanced Britax B-Safe infant car seats, including B-Safe Gen2 , B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit and B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit+.
“Parents asked and we listened,” said Kelly Thomas, Britax Senior Brand Manager. “For this next generation of Britax infant car seats, we’ve blended our trusted Britax safety technologies with enhanced comfort and better convenience for added peace of mind during that first ride home and beyond.”
PROTECTING YOUR DREAMS RIGHT FROM THE START
Beginning at a minimum child capacity of four pounds, all Britax infant car seats offer the exclusive Britax Safety including SafeCell Technology and an industrial-strength steel frame in the base. SafeCell Technology acts as a crumple zone, helping to absorb crash energy. The high-strength steel frame reinforces the car seat’s base to help keep it stabilized. The new infant car seats also offer layers of side impact protection to help protect baby’s head, neck, and spine through a maximum child capacity of 35 pounds and 32 inches.
ROOMIER COMFORT FOR BABIES ON-THE-GROW
Britax listened to parents asking for more space for their babies to grow and gave the new B-Safe Gen2 line of infant car seats a roomier seating area. The spacious comfort enhancements provide a more enjoyable ride for all babies, without altering the exterior shell width, so the car seat will not take up any additional space in the vehicle. Redesigned covers are now tagless and made with a soft-touch knit fabric that provides a smooth surface for baby’s tender head. The new spacious seating area offers plenty of room to grow, while improved cover set designs keep babies extra comfortable on every outing.
ENHANCED CONVENIENCE FOR PARENTS
The design updates include a one-hand harness buckle release for caregivers to quickly unbuckle baby and keep moving, as well as the easy-read level indicators on the base that are visible from all angles to help install with confidence every time. Plus, all three new seats are available in performance fabrics like SafeWash, which is great for consumers looking for a naturally flame-retardant cover (no added FR chemicals) that is also safe to machine wash and dry.
NEW OPTIONS FOR NEW ARRIVALS
The B-Safe Gen2, B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit and B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit+ infant car seats combine trusted Britax safety with thoughtful design enhancements that make a big difference for on-the-go parents and their growing infants.
The B-Safe Gen2 Infant Car Seat replaces the Britax B-Safe 35 and pairs leading safety technologies, such as the steel reinforced base and SafeCell crumple zone with an easy installation so parents can travel in total confidence. This car seat offers three soft-knit, machine washable fashions, including Drift SafeWash, Eclipse Black SafeWash and Cobblestone SafeWash (Amazon exclusive) that retail for $199.99.
The B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit Infant Car Seat replaces the Britax B-Safe Ultra. Like the B-Safe Gen2, it offers trusted Britax safety as well as additional convenience features. Two layers of side impact protection surround the head, neck & torso while the no-rethread harness moves with the headrest for easy height adjustment as baby grows. Designed for travel flexibility, the B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit infant car seat can be easily installed with the base or leave the base at home and make it ride-share-ready by using the attached European Belt Guide on the back of the shell. This car seat offers four high-performance fashions, including Twilight SafeWash, Cowmooflage 2.0 SafeWash, and Cool Flow Gray for $249.99, as well as Stainless StayClean, featuring Nanotex technology, for $259.99.
The B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit+ Infant Car Seat replaces the Britax Endeavours and pairs the most premium features with the best fit for baby. The B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit+ offers all the sought-after comfort and convenience features found on the B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit, with the built-in anti-rebound bar, which helps reduce movement during a crash and provides parents that extra peace of mind on every trip. This car seat offers three high-performance fashions, including Drift SafeWash and Jet SafeWash for $309.99 and Cool N Dry (Amazon exclusive) for $319.99.
The next generation of infant car seats pairs trusted safety with popular Britax strollers to make the perfect combination of on-the-go mobility as a travel system. Click&Go adapters, included free with each travel system, allow for easy transitions from car to stroller and back again.
