Key Features of the Stretch B from BeSafe:
  • Rear-facing forever and ever! – with unbeatable leg space of up to 26cm and no risk of outgrowing the maximum 36kg weight limit this seat will keep children rear-facing for longer.
  • Fitted with a BeSafe Baby Shell™ and Newborn Hugger™.  The Baby Shell is a one-of-a-kind baby insert that provides an ideal sitting angle custom made for babies, and adds an extra layer of side impact protection to keep babies safe. The additional Newborn Hugger that is placed inside the Baby Shell has a combination of soft material on the sides and a cleverly placed wedge to keep newborns snug and supported allowing them to lie flat by lifting their back instead of their bottom.
  • Maximum safety – The innovative exo frame connects with the car belts and floor to bear the forces in the case of a frontal crash. The rigid seat shell transfers the child’s energy onto the exo frame, keeping the child in a stable position in an impact.
  • Individualised comfort – 5 recline positions, 10-step adjustable headrest, lots of space for growing legs and Two-Fit cushions™ for an individual adjustment – this seat provides exceptional comfort. Magnetic belt assistants™ make getting in and out of the seat a breeze.
  • LESS LANDFILL Stretch B can last for many years because of the use of durable materials such as aluminium and exchanging the more vulnerable EPS with the sturdy EPP. In addition, BeSafe has simplified the changing of parts, so that the seat can be repaired if needed or given a refresh. This enables Stretch B to keep many children safe throughout its usage time all while keeping your child rear facing until approx. 7 years, which is 5 x safer.
