It is almost 12 months since the BeSafe iZi Modular system was introduced to our lives and nearly a year on it has continued to go from strength to strength. The overall modular system is an excellent idea and definitely should not be overlooked – not only is it i-Size meaning it’s exceptionally safe, it is also excellent value for money as you only need 1 base – and we all know having children can be quite expensive!
The Modular system consists of three components; one isofix base and two car seats. From birth you will only need the isofix base and the iZi Go Modular, an infant carrier that can be used from birth up until around 12 months old. Like all infant carriers, the iZi go is rearward facing and excels in the safety tests after receiving a top score of ‘Very Good’ in ADAC/Stiftung Warentest in May 2016 and a Which? Best buy so you know you’re in safe hands!
One your little one reaches around 1 year old they will be ready to move out of this seat but remember as long as their head isn’t over the top of the car seat, they are good to stay in this seat and still be super safe.
The next seat that completes the Modular system is the iZi Modular which is a second stage car seat suitable to around 4 years old! The great thing about this seat is that is can both forward and rearward face because your growing baby is up to 5 times safer when rearward facing. The video below will explain this in a little more detail but if they get to a certain age and you do need to turn them forward facing, the option is there with this seat.
The whole iZi Modular system will provide comfort for your child as the car seats adapt for their size with adjustable head rests and removable body huggers. BeSafe have also made this super easy for parents by including their innovative harness magnets that keep the harness out the way when getting baby in and out – genius!
Installing the seats in the car couldn’t be easier and the fact you have the same base for 4 years means you don’t have to get used to a new system after the first seat. The base just needs to be clicked into your car using the isofix points and the indicators will turn green when you have done it correctly.
As mentioned earlier this seat performs brilliantly in crash tests and is 100% i-Size certified meaning it meets the newest EU standards for car seat legislation. The side impact features on this seat far exceeds the criteria and you can rest assured your child is as safe as possible, so definitely be sure to check out this award winning seat!
