Description: The Recaro ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat accommodates children weighing 5 to 70 pounds and over one year of age. This car seat offers energy absorbing EPS foam and deep side wings for exceptional safety. It can be installed using the LATCH system both rear and forward facing. Recaro car seats come in a limited variety of colors in easy to wash and comfortable microfiber fabrics. Suitable for children up to about eight years old.
Why we like it: Recaro is one cool company. They make numerous products including automobile and aircraft seating, restraint devices for NASCAR, and of course, child car seats. That said, Recaro car seats naturally meet or exceed all U.S. safety standards. From our research, we feel that Recaro car seats are among the safest car seats on the market. If racecar drivers trust their lives to Recaro while driving at hundreds of miles an hour on the track, then we put our same trust in Recaro car seats to protect our most precious little ones.
Things we wish were different: Like many convertible child safety seats, the ProRIDE is a bit on the bulky side. Depending on your vehicle, you may prefer a slimmer design, such as that found in the Britax Roundabout.
