VIDEO: the NEW Nuna Rava Convertible Car Seat vs. the Clek Foonf


nuna rava vs clek foonf

It’s not always easy to compare the very top-of-the-line gear in our selection: the differences between, say, two Bugaboo strollers, can be pretty subtle. (Do you want the stroller that handles rough terrain by reversing the handlebar, or the one that handles rough terrain with very large tires? Think carefully!)

Comparing the new Nuna Rava Convertible Car Seat with the Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat presents an entirely different difficulty, though: while both seats look great and provide excellent protection for your child in the car, their most exciting features are quite different. The Nuna Rava, for instance, stands out from the crowd for the following reasons:

  • It’s designed for superbly easy installation using the safety belt, via the new Simply Secure system. Seriously, anyone can do this: just open the window in the seat, thread the belt through the color-coded guides, buckle it, and snap the door shut, and you have a perfect, tight installation.
  • It makes it easier to keep your kid rear-facing for as long as possible with a high weight limit and “laid back legroom,” which gives your preschooler a little more room to stretch their legs without turning the seat around.

The Clek Foonf, on the other hand, has the completely unique REACT system, which mimics the effect of the crumple zone in your car to divert crash energy from your child in the event of a collision. Add the anti-rebound bar and rigid LATCH, and you’ve got a truly formidable seat in terms of safety. Plus, the easy-to-clean Crypton Super Fabrics will keep this beautiful seat looking good for a long time.

So, how do you choose between these two convertible car seats? It’s a real puzzler, but hopefully our video review will help.

  1. I was comparing the clek foonf and the nuna rava.
    I’m always looking for nontoxic baby products.
    Are both car seats free of chemicals in the material?
    I prefer to choose a car seat with out flame retardant chemicals.

    Thank you!

  2. Hi Katie! We do our best to research the chemicals you will and won’t find in any given product we sell, and happily, Clek car seats are GREENGUARD Select Certified! Their Crypton® Super Fabrics are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants.

    Nuna also is known for making every possible effort to keep toxic chemicals out of their products, and their Leaf floating baby lounger features GOTS certified and Oeko-Tex certified fabrics (you can see more info here: However, we haven’t got any information about the fabrics on the Rava. While I’d be confident using the Rava myself, given the company’s commitment to quality, if flame retardants are your number one concern, you’ll probably feel better using the Foonf simply because the info is there.

    If you have any other questions about these seats let us know!
