BRITAX Launches New, Lightweight Travel System — Quick-fold stroller and infant car seat combination allows for easy travel —
CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, lightweight travel system — one that offers a three-wheel stroller with a one-hand quick fold and an infant car seat — is now part of the thoughtfully-designed stroller and car seat lines from BRITAX.
The compact B-AGILE weighs less than 17 pounds and can accommodate children from birth to 55 pounds. It is equipped with the integrated BRITAX CLICK & GO system, making it compatible with both BRITAX Infant Car Seats — the new B-SAFE and the CHAPERONE. It also features a no re-thread, five-point adjustable harness system, a one-step linked parking brake and an automatic chassis lock that secures the frame in a folded position. The stroller's infinite recline positions, head rest, and shoulder and belly pads help ensure the child's comfort, while all-wheel suspension makes for a smooth ride.
A large under seat storage basket and zippered parent storage pocket also provide additional space for items like keys, a wallet or a child's toy. Available accessories include a travel bag, adult cup holder, child tray, rain cover and UV/mosquito net. The B-AGILE comes in two fashions and is compatible with major infant car seat brands using an adapter frame (sold separately). It has a suggested retail price of $249.99
The B-SAFE Infant Car Seat features BRITAX Side Impact Protection and can accommodate children up to 32 inches tall and weighing between 4 and 30 pounds. Integrated BRITAX CLICK & GO stroller adapters allow the B-SAFE to work seamlessly as a travel system with the new BRITAX B-AGILE stroller and other strollers in the BRITAX B-Series.
In addition to Side Impact Protection — which includes deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPS foam to distribute crash forces and shield the child from vehicle intrusion — the B-SAFE offers a tangle-free five-point adjustable harness with four height adjustments and two buckle positions.
The B-SAFE also includes a number of features that keep parents and babies comfortable, and help ensure that parents install and use the seat correctly every time. An ergonomic handle with three locking positions allows for a more comfortable carrying position and a removable comfort pad makes the ride more enjoyable for baby. Additionally, premium push-button LATCH connectors allow for quick, reliable installation and a built-in lock-off system makes the seat easy to use with a vehicle seatbelt. The B-SAFE base can adjust to five levels and has two indictors to help parents determine the seat's proper installation angle. The B-SAFE Infant Car Seat (MSRP: $179.99) comes in two fashions.
The BRITAX B-AGILE and BRITAX B-SAFE travel system offers convenience and safety for parents on the go. Both items will be available in July 2011. For more information about BRITAX, visit www.britaxusa.com, or find BRITAX on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
