FORT MILL, S.C., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As children grow up, they need seats that grow with them. That's why BRITAX is introducing the PIONEER 70 combination Harness-2-Booster seat. The smart-value, premium seat offers unrivaled safety, comfort and convenience for children graduating from a convertible car seat.
Parents may rest assured of their child's safety because the PIONEER 70 features exclusive BRITAX Safety You Can See technologies. Featured in plain sight, these safety technologies allow parents to see what keeps their children safe. The seat's Integrated Steel Bars, Base with SafeCell Technology and Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether work together to protect a child's head by minimizing forward movement. True Side Impact Protection provides deep side walls and a head restraint with energy-absorbing EPS foam to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion and contain the head, neck and body.
A recline from the front of the seat, as well as an open, spacious seating area, a seated shoulder height of 18.5 inches and two buckle positions allow room for the seat to fit a child comfortably for many years.
"Our team developed a seat that combines smart value and superior safety for growing children," said Claudia Prager, Product Manager at BRITAX. "While still including the best safety technologies, we're giving parents more bang for the buck – our seat is designed to accommodate older children for a longer period of time."
The PIONEER 70 Harness-2-Booster offers a forward-facing, tangle-free, five-point harness that a two year-old and 25-pound child can use. Harness mode accommodates a child weighing up to 70 pounds; then, the seat can easily convert to a belt-positioning booster, which a child can safely ride in until reaching 110 pounds.
Beyond exceptional safety and comfort features, parents will appreciate the PIONEER 70's ease of use. To simplify seat adjustments, the seat recline and the harness and headrest can be accessed from the front. Integrated cup holders and storage offer a convenient space for cups and snacks. Finally, the PIONEER 70 features an easy-access belt path that makes installing with a vehicle seat belt simple.
The BRITAX PIONEER 70 (MSRP: $229.99) Harness-2-Booster will be available at independent and mass retailers this July. For more information about BRITAX, visit www.britaxusa.com, or find BRITAX on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
