- Patented 3-position reclining headrest
- Optimised Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System Plus)
- 11-position height-adjustable
- ISOFIX Connect for more safety and stability
The most important element in the safety concept of the Solution series is the CYBEX patented reclining headrest. It cleverly prevents the child’s head from falling forward even when asleep. The car seat also boasts additional side protectors that are similar to a side airbag effectively absorbing the energy of a side impact collision. The ISOFIX Connect System further enhances the stability and safety of the seat. Also compatible with cars that are not equipped with ISOFIX.
3-position reclining headrest
The 3-position reclining headrest cleverly prevents the child's head from falling forward while asleep.
The CYBEX patented 3-position reclining headrest guarantees optimal protection in the case of a side-impact. This revolutionary technology safely shifts the balance point of the child's head slightly back and prevents it from falling forward when the child is asleep. In the case of a side-impact collision, the child's sensitive head remains within the safety zone of the seat, ensuring optimal protection. Furthermore, our patented 3-position headrest offers a more comfortable sleeping position for a safe and peaceful journey.video
L.S.P. System Plus
Optimised Linear Side-impact Protection
The optimised Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System Plus) absorbs the impact energy at a very early stage.
The force of a side-impact collision is absorbed in a linear series of reactions through the use of protective side cushions, along with the shoulder and head protectors. At the same time, the body's kinetic energy caused by the impact is absorbed at a very early stage and the head is actively led into a safe position.
More safety and stability
ISOFIX Connect System offers enhanced safety and stability and easy one-click installation.
The seat's connectors simply snap into the vehicle's ISOFIX anchorage points. The connectors can easily be folded away, so that the seat is also compatible with cars not equipped with ISOFIX.

Is this the right seat for my car?
The installation of our products is extensively tested in the latest vehicles. However, we always recommend a test installation at a qualified retailer to confirm individual compatibility. Especially the length of the vehicle belts or ISOFIX (US: LATCH) anchorage points may vary, even during a production run of a car manufacturer.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Do the Group 2/3 seats equipped with the ISOFIX Connect System also have to be secured in the vehicle with a Top Tether?
No, since the ECE-R44/04 standard only covers the ISOFIX anchorage system for Group 0-1. Group 2/3 child safety seats do not fall within this standard. The system, used by the CYBEX Group 2/3 seats, is referred to as ISOFIX-Connect and serves as additional anchorage for the car safety seat in the vehicle. The child is secured using the vehicle´s retractable 3-point safety belt.
- What does L.S.P. system stand for?
The abbreviation L.S.P. stands for Linear.Side-Impact.Protection. The L.S.P. system is responsible for the shoulder and head protectors systematically absorbing the forces of a side impact in a linear chain reaction. The kinetic body energy triggered in an accident is absorbed and the head and upper body moved in a safe position. Especially the sensitive head and shoulder area is protectively locked inside the safety zone of the seat. The L.S.P. System Plus features additional side protectors.
- Do child seats equipped with a backrest perform better than booster seats?
The main problem with booster seats is the missing side protection. A child seat with a backrest has side protectors that prevent the child from hitting the window in the case of a side impact collision. Additionally, the routing of the seat belt can not be adjusted to the height of the child causing possible health hazards. Therefore, compared to seats with a backrest, booster seats do pose a higher risk of injury.
- Which is the normal position for the reclining headrest?
The patented reclining headrest, a passive safety feature of the CYBEX Group 1/2/3 car seats and the Group 2/3 seats for older children, is one of the central CYBEX safety technologies. In its reclined position it prevents the head from falling forward when the child is asleep keeping head and upper body within the safety zone during the ride. Adjusting the headrest to the front position when the child is awake it keeps the head in an upright position.
- Can I use the child seat on rearward facing car seats like those found in vans or minibuses?
You can use this child seat on rearward facing car seats as long as the vehicle seat has a homologation for use by adults and a 3 point belt. The headrest of the vehicle seat should not be removed when the child seat is mounted.
- Can I use the child seat on lateral facing car seats?
It is not permissible to use the child seat on lateral facing car seats.
- Is it ok to install the seat on the passenger seat?
CYBEX Group 2/3 seats can be used in all seats of the car with a three point emergency locking retractor belt. However, we recommend generally using the seat in the back of the car. Statistically, the front seat poses a higher risk of injury for your child. In exceptions, however, the seat can be used in the passenger seat as well. Please note the following: Iif the car has an airbag, put the seat as far back as possible. However, you should pay attention that the upper part of the seat belt stays behind the running of the belt.
- What can I do if my child´s head drops forward while sleeping in spite of the reclining headrest?
If the child safety seat is attached to the car seat in too upright a position, causing your child to be seated vertically, some children´s heads may fall to the side in their sleep. Should this occur, the seat should be pulled forward slightly. If your seat is designed with the ISOFIX Connect System, simply release the connectors by one or, at most, two settings. It is also possible to use a children´s neck cushion, which stops the child from slumping while asleep. This prevents the child´s head from leaving the protection zone.
- When I fasten my child´s safety belt, the belt no longer automatically retracts. What can I do?
The wide range of vehicle seats means that, in some cases, the safety belt may not run smoothly to the child safety seat. If this is the case, first check whether the height of the safety belt can be adjusted in the car. If possible, adjust the height of the belt so that it runs straight and smoothly through the child safety seat´s belt positioner. Alternatively, the problem may be alleviated if the vehicle seat can be adjusted horizontally, vertically and/or at an angle.
- Is it normal that the seat’s backrest is not completely locked and has a bit of room to wiggle when the seat is not installed in the car?
The reclining backrest is part of the CYBEX safety concept. Thanks to the automatic adjustment mechanism, it adapts perfectly to any car seat. In the worst-case scenario, the backrest moves slightly forward with your child, and is thereby able to ‘catch’ the body at an earlier stage. The seat and backrest are connected to each other, but are not rigid and don’t lock into place.
- Is it ok to keep using a seat after an accident?
In an accident the plastic parts of the baby seat may sustain damages that are invisible to the eye yet extremely dangerous. Therefore, CYBEX always strongly advises to exchange the car seat if it has been involved in any type of accident.
- Can I use this child seat on an airplane?
No, this seat is not approved for use on an airplane.
