Medieval European steel plate armor was a major technological advance at the time: neither swords, nor spears, nor arrows could get through a knight's metal carapace. However, there were a few problems with this method of self-defense. First of all, it was wildly expensive (it could cost as much as 20 days' pay); second of all, it typically weighed around 60 pounds; and finally, if your opponent was smart, he would use a blunt weapon instead of a pointy one, demonstrating the effectiveness of concussive force.
Modern safety gear provides safer and more reliable protection from concussive force by keeping this example in mind. The layers of EPS foam in the Britax Frontier 85 SICT, which converts from a harnessed booster to a belt-positioning booster, absorb crash energy rather than passing it on. The Frontier SICT has extra Side Impact Cushions on the outside of the seat to protect your little combatant in the case of a side collision, along with the inner Side Impact Protection featured by the earlier Frontier 85 seat. The Energy Absorbing Base also deforms in the event of a crash, absorbing crash forces.
There isn't a single detail on the Britax Frontier 85 SICT booster that isn't engineered with safety in mind. The tangle-free 5-point harness has 10 height positions and 3 buckle positions, so you can adjust it precisely, and you don't have to rethread the harness to adjust shoulder height. The Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS) provides resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash.
Easy installation is also important, because a difficult installation makes it easier to make mistakes. Installing your Frontier 85 SICT Booster Seat is simple: the Premium Lower Latch Connectors attach tightly and with ease, and release with a push button. Color Coded Vehicle Belt Guides help you get the lap and shoulder belt just right. And the Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether reduces crash forces reaching your child.
Of course, a booster is useless if your child won't sit in it, so Britax made sure that this seat is comfy for kids, too. High comfort foam padding provides a cozy seat, armrests give your child a place to put his arms, and the cup holders are great for drinks and toys.
You can use the Britax Frontier 85 SICT Booster Seat as a forward-facing harnessed seat from 25-85 pounds, 30-57 inches. In belt-positioning booster mode, it accommodates 40-120 pounds, or a 42 to 65-inch-tall child. Who needs armor?
