Cybex Aton Q i-Size with its Aton Q Isofix base is an extremely 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.
This review represents the installation with Aton Q i-size isofix base. It can also be installed with seat belt.
Aton Q cannot be used on airplanes.
The seat can used both with seat belt and isofix – a very good option if you want to have an isofix seat but need the flexibility and possibility to use it with a seat belt once in a while.
- 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 harness is Y-shaped, extra wide with crotch pads.
- 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°.
- There is an indicator which shows if you have properly installed the seat into the base.
Additionally, you can buy a footmuff, rain and summer cover, insect net and Isofix guides matching with the Aton Q i-Size seat (if you choose to buy the seat with its base).
There are two different types of inlay materials available for Cybex Aton Q. One of them is a soft and cozy comfort style with 4 different colors. The other one is the Plus version which looks like denim and is exclusive and a very hard-wearing fabric. This latter one is also available in 4 different colors.
When the car seat is installed on the front passenger seat, you must switch off the front passenger airbag.
