INNOVATIONS IN SAFETY
The new Aton 2 brings two new safety innovations to the U.S. market. For more information and buying options click here.
Adjustable Load Leg
The Load Leg, a virtual standard in Europe, is now available on the Base 2. The Load Leg provides additional support between the child restraint and the vehicle, allowing the Aton 2 to more effectively absorb and distribute crash energy.
The Leg dramatically reduces pitching of the seat, keeping the child in the prescribed position during the entire crash event. This reduces the risk of spinal cord injury due to stretching, which can be caused if the infant seat pitches too far forward.
Linear Side Impact Protection (LSP)
The LSP side protectors on the Aton 2 transfer the initial impact of a side impact to the seat’s shell.
The optimized structure of the shell absorbs the forces and channels them away from your baby resulting in a 40% increase in safety.
World Class Safety
- Excellent Side Impact Protection: The LSP devices in combination with the flexible, energy absorbing shell, thick EPS foam, and extra thick padded covers, absorb and distribute crash forces away from your child especially during side-impact collisions.
- Dual Weight Ranges: The Aton 2 offers dual weight ranges to help make sure your seat is reclined at the proper angle according to the weight of your child. One range accommodates children from 422 pounds and the other, 2235 pounds.
- European Install: When installing the Aton without the Base, a front mounted belt guide allows the preferred “”European”” method where the shoulder belt wraps around the front of the carrier adding additional stability.
- A Steel Chassis: A solid steel spine running through the Aton 2 Base creates metal to metal contact through the Load Leg, infant carrier, and the vehicle for added strength and properly managed crash forces.
- Dual Action Release: A green safety button indicates a secure connection has been made between the carrier and the Base. This button is part of a two-step process needed to remove the Carrier from the Base, preventing accidental release.
- Certified: All CYBEX seats meet and exceed FMVSS 213 Standards and are approved by the FAA for air travel.
- Latest Safety Technologies: The seats are outfitted with the latest safety equipment including an extra wide five-point harness, padded shoulder and buckle belts, premium LATCH connectors, and anti-rebound protection.
Whether you use LATCH or vehicle belts, the Aton 2 Base is truly easy to use.
- Innovative Belt Tensioner: The Aton 2 Base uses a unique Belt Tensioning Plate for a quick, simple and secure installation when using either LATCH or vehicle belts. Simply remove the slack from the belts and close the plate for a super easy and tight install.
- Recline Foot: A four-position, spring activated leveling foot makes reclining the Aton 2 easy. The dual ranges level indicator makes sure your child is reclined at the proper angle.
- Adjustable Load Leg Foot: The foot of the Load Leg adjusts from 10ž to 18ž inches to allow firm contact between the foot of the Load Leg and the vehicle floor.
- Premium Latch Connectors: We use only premium LATCH Connectors on our Base, making for a quick and easy installation. LATCH Connectors can be stored in the Base for out of the way storage when not in use.
- Free Latch Guides: LATCH Guides easily hook onto your vehicle’s lower LATCH anchors to help make car seat installation easier while at the same time protecting your vehicle seats. Keep a pair in each car for easy transfer of car seats between vehicles.
Not compatible with hook-type Lower LATCH Connectors.
COMFORT FOR BABY AND YOU
CYBEX cars seats offer your baby a plush, comfortable environment, while making it easier on you to use them everyday.
- Ultra Light Carrier: Weighing just under 9 pounds, the CYBEX Aton 2 Infant Carrier is one of the lightest carriers on the market due to the careful consideration of materials as well as having the release mechanism as part of the Base and not the Carrier.
- Integrated Canopy: The unique integrated fold-away canopy provides SPF 50+ sun protection for your child while maintaining the sleek style of the Aton 2.
- Three Position Handle: A three position handle accomodates carrying and driving, resting, and storage when needed.
- Premium Fabrics: Super soft, extra padded covers complete with shoulder and buckle pads comfort your child while in the Aton 2.
- Infant Insert: Provides more stability to the head and upper torso and also aids in providing a better fit of the harness with smaller children.
- Newborn Inlay: Properly positions smaller babies for a better fit of the harness and also opens up the torso angle to help facilitate breathing and digestion.
- Travel System: The CYBEX Aton 2 can be paired with any CYBEX stroller for an ultra chic urban travel system.
- Seat Type: Rear Facing Infant
- Child Weight: 4 to 35 lbs
- Child Height: 30 inches or less
