Extended Rear Facing up to 7 years old
Axkid One offers i-Size level safety in the rear-facing position from birth using the newborn insert, all the way up to 7 years old. Axkid One can be purchased as a from-birth solution using this newborn insert, or from 6 months without the newborn insert, but both seats offer the impressive extended rear-facing capabilities that will allow your little one to benefit from the highest level of car seat protection currently on the market.
The Benefits of Extended Rear-Facing Travel
The safety benefits of extended rear-facing travel have been known for a while now, thanks to extensive research into the subject. Rearward-facing travel has been proven to be up to 5x safer than forward-facing travel, offering heightened protection against serious injury and less risk of neck injury in case of collision.
Axkid One takes these benefits and extends them further, allowing your child to rear-face all the way up to 7 years of age so that they can benefit from heightened levels of security and protection when travelling for much longer than in other rear-facing car seats.
Extra Leg Room
Axkid One boasts an innovative design featuring a sliding rail system that provides children with plenty of extra legroom to create a spacious and comfortable seat that adapts to suit them as they grow. The sliding rail design means extended rear-facing travel up to 7 is not only achievable but also comfortable.
Axkid One's sliding rails also provides a sturdy handle that children can use to get themselves in and out of the car seat as they get older and become more independent.
Axkid One offers a strong and sturdy design that is also conveniently super lightweight. Weighing less than 10kg, Axkid One is extremely easy to carry to and from the car and allows older and heavier children to travel rearward all the way up to 6-7 years old.
Axkid One features aluminium and hardened steel to form a lightweight safety frame that will act as a protective cocoon for your child. The seat itself has also been built with shock-absorbing materials to help minimize crash-forces upon impact.
Axkid One comes complete with the Sleepwell System allowing the seat angle to be adjusted all the way to 42 degrees. Not only does this allow for comfortable on-the-go naps for older children, but when used alongside the soft newborn inlay also means that Axkid One Plus allows your infant to travel safely in this car seat from day one.
Axkid One offers quick and secure installation in 30 seconds, thanks to its 6 self-explanatory installation steps. It features a self-tightening anti-rotation bar for added protection and convenience, as well as a built-in audio cue that informs you whether the seat has been installed in the optimal position.
Combined with the ease of ISOFIX connectors and the lightweight of the car seat, Axkid guarantees that you can install this car seat in less than 30 seconds - easy peasy!
