gb’s first group 1/2/3 car seat has been recognised as test winner in this year’s independent German Stiftung Warentest.
The future-perfect lifestyle baby brand’s multi-stage car seat, the Everna-Fix, has received test winner and a ‘good’ rating (Child Car Seats 9-36kg) from one of the most prestigious testers of child car seats in Europe.
Fusing design with functionality, the Everna-Fix delivers ongoing safety and support through children’s formative years, up to approximately 12 years.
The Everna-Fix features an ISOFIX System and is equipped with a unique top tether which prevents from dangerous seat rotation in case of an accident. Both features have a visual warning, with the top tether having an additional audible warning when not installed or inappropriately installed – supporting the correct use of the seat.
The car seat features the integrated Linear Side-impact Protection System (L.S.P.) which provides an additional layer of protection in the case of a side-impact, reducing the force of the collision by approximately 25%, when compared to the same seat without L.S.P. This works in unison with the energy-absorbing shell, which directs force away from the child, further minimising the effects of a collision.
The seat secures the child with a 5-point harness for maximum safety, while the patented reclining headrest prevents the child’s head from tipping forward while sleeping. This ensures that their head remains in the safety zone, offering vital protection in the case of a side-impact collision.
The Everna-Fix features an integrated ventilation system, allowing air to circulate under the cover to ensure a comfortable seat temperature. Plus, the smart one-hand recline function enables parents to make adjustments with ease, delivering comfort for little ones and convenience for parents.
Luke Burns, GM at gb, said: “We are proud that the gb Everna-Fix has received test winner and a ‘good’ rating from Stiftung Warentest – this result adds to the great ADAC result in October 2019 and emphasises how we’re putting exceptional safety, functionality and ease of use first, supporting parents at every life stage.”
In group 1 (9 to 18 kg), the child is protected with a five-point harness for maximum safety. As soon as the child reaches 18 kilograms (approx. 105 cm), the car seat can be easily converted into a group 2/3 car seat and the child is secured with the 3-point vehicle belt.
The Everna-Fix is available from RRP £249.95 and comes in six colour ways including Night Blue, Velvet Black, London Grey, Sweet Pink, Rose Red and Laguna Blue.
