Recaro at exhibition "Kind + Jugend" in Cologne
RECARO presents the novelties for the upcoming year
With the Privia infant carrier Recaro is offering the best child seat that has ever been rated by Stiftung Warentest (“test”, issue 6/2014, test winner: group 0/0+ with Recaro fix base; rating: Very Good; result: 1.3). As the next stage seat after the infant carrier Recaro introduces the new group I seat Optia at the Cologne fair. It is compatible with the Recaro fix base and stands out not only through the modern design but also due to the safety features that have already been proven with the Privia infant carrier. The HERO belt system, innovative side impact protection (ASP) and Recaro SMARTfit elements for particularly easy handling, guarantee maximum safety for children up to approximately 4.5 years. Under the name Optiafix is the new Recaro group I seat is also available with an integrated ISOFIX connection.
Within the ECE group I-III Recaro introduces the new grow-along child seat Young Sport Hero. Its predecessor has sold more than one million pieces and became popular with the customers due to the particularly long usage and easy handling. The side impact protection has been improved once more and the integrated 5-point belt has been upgraded with the HERO safety system.
For the first time ever Recaro is launching a special edition of their most popular child seats. They pay homage to the automotive tradition of Recaro. Recaro Child Safety benefits from the many years of experience and know-how stemming from Recaro automotive and aircraft seating competencies. Thanks to exquisite embroidery, distinctive stitching and the typical rally stripe the striking designs in Black and Red appeal to not only motorsport fans. The Monza Nova Family and the Young Sport Hero in the limited Racing Edition will be available in 2015.
At the Kind + Jugend Fair Recaro is also presenting something new in the stroller segment. With the Citylife the stroller portfolio is extended with a fully adequate travel system. The stable, lightweight and multi-functional chassis can be combined with the infant carrier, carrycot or ergonomic seating unit. This makes the Citylife the perfect stroller, from birth onward. The smart one-hand folding mechanism, an extremely compact folding size as well as practical features like the large shopping basket, a continuous handle, fully suspended wheels or the Push-Push braking system leave nothing to desire for parents and kids.
Also new – and only available in a limited quantity – is the special edition of the Recaro Easylife for 2015. The compact, light and flexible buggy with its comfortable one-hand folding mechanism will be available with a white frame and the choice of six trendy cover colors.
