CYBEX, the German manufacturer of innovative car seats and strollers has announced the launch of the Anoris T i-Size car seat equipped with integrated full body airbag.
CYBEX Anoris is setting new industry standards in terms of safety. Thanks to its integrated airbag technology, the forward-facing seat claims to offer approximately 50%1 more protection than conventional forward-facing seats, and be at least as safe as rear-facing car seats. Facing forward, the child enjoys much easier interaction with the driver. The Anoris T i-Size is simple to install and provides more comfort, legroom and easy entry into the seat.
In 2012, CYBEX revolutionised the market with its multiple award-winning rear-facing car seat, the CYBEX Sirona. The Sirona’s unique rotation mechanism for easy boarding and its excellent safety scores has since become the new industry standard. Nine years later, CYBEX is pioneering once again with the debut of Anoris T i-Size.
“The question was never if, but rather when,” says Martin Pos, founder of CYBEX. “For decades, airbags have been essential safety features for vehicles, protecting adults from serious injury in the event of an accident. Ever since CYBEX was founded in 2005, we had a vision for a car seat that would also make this technology accessible to children. Thanks to the hard work of our development team over the past 15 years and new technologies, it is with great pride that we release CYBEX Anoris T i-Size.”
Safety in Milliseconds With Innovative Airbag Technology
In a conventional front-facing car seat , a child is secured using harness straps so that in a frontal collision the head is thrust forward. To combat this, the airbag integrated into the Anoris T i-Size’s impact shield protects both the fragile head and neck. The airbag is activated in milliseconds, opening to spread to a C-shape in front of the child. The full body airbag provides approximately 50% more protection in the event of a frontal collision than traditional forward-facing child seats with a harness system, while still offering the same degree of protection as rear-facing seats.
Frontal Orientation, Increased Passive Safety, More Legroom and Unrestricted Interaction
We know turning around while driving is dangerous. As a forward-facing seat, the Anoris T i-Size allows parents to interact easily with their children, keeping them in plain sight using the rearview mirror.
Grow Older With Comfort and Ease
The Anoris T i-Size makes a long drive more comfortable by offering enough legroom for children up to six years old (two years older than conventional child car seats allow). On longer trips, bigger kids can dangle their feet without feeling restricted in any way.
The car seat – developed in accordance with the UN R129/03 standard – is suited for children at a height of 76 centimetres. Yet, the seat is easy to adapt as the child grows all the way up to age six, or to a height of 115 centimetres and a maximum weight of 21 kilograms. Parents can adjust the seat into three comfortable positions so children can easily fall asleep during longer journeys.
The Anoris T i-Size will be available in stores in late November, 2021 at a list price of 699.95 EUR/£559.95.
 This value is derived from the results of internal crash tests taking into account the ADAC front crash test criteria (2021).
