Cybex Aton 5 is a very safe and lightweight safety seat that can also be used as a carrier and a travel system on several buggies and strollers (e.g. Cybex, gb) with an adapter. It can also be installed with a seat belt – the result above represents this version. So, even if you buy it together with a base, you have the flexibility to install the seat randomly in another car without having to pay attention to bring its base with you. In my opinion, this is a great advantage compared with seats that can only be installed with Isofix. This is the fifth generation of the Aton seats, designed and engineered in Germany. Aton 5 cannot be used on airplanes.
- A central adjuster helps to adapt the size and height of the harness and headrest to the baby. 8 different height positions are available.
- The seat includes a newborn insert for an almost lie-flat position that can be removed as the baby grows. The function is to keep the head-neck-chest line in a flat position to prevent the baby’s head from falling forward causing serious breathing problems.
- The Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System) protects the baby from a possible side impact by absorbing and channeling away the energy with its flexible material. You have to open the Linear Side-impact Protection on the side that is closer to the door. In case, you place the seat in the middle of the rear seats, you must not unfold the Linear Side-impact Protection.
- The seat inlay is soft and padded.
- The sun canopy is extra large with UPF50+ sun protection and can be adjusted into 4 different positions.
- It has a 3-point harness system.
- The shell is energy absorbing for side impact protection.
- The cover can be washed on 30°.
Additionally, you can buy the Aton Base 2 and Aton Base 2-fix isofix bases, footmuff, rain and summer cover, and insect net matching with the Aton 5 seat.
Cybex Aton 5 is available in 5 different colors.
When the car seat is installed on the front passenger seat, you must switch off the front passenger airbag.
