Head and shoulder protectors grow with the personal space requirements of the child
11-position height-adjustable for the perfect fit and maximum safety.
The 11-position height-adjustment allows the seat to grow with the child and offers extremely long usability. The head and shoulder protectors grow with the personal space requirements of the child.
Linear Side-impact Protection
The Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System) provides extra safety in the event of a side-impact collision.
The Linear Side-impact Protection System (L.S.P. System) systematically absorbs the force of a side-impact collision in a linear series of reactions through the use of 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.

Is this the right seat for my car?
We extensively test the suitability for all our products in all the latest vehicle models. Should your vehicle not appear please contact our customer service team for further assistance. We always recommend that you do a test installation at a qualified retailer to confirm individual compatibility. You should especially check that your vehicle model has ISOFIX anchorage points (US: LATCH ) and the length of the vehicle seat belt as this may vary, even during the same production year of manufacture.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Can I use this seat on a flight?
Yes, this seat is approved for use on an airplane.
- Can I install the seat on the front passenger seat?
The car seat should only be installed on the passenger seat if the front airbag has been deactivated. Important: According to the Highway Code, it is against the law for your child to travel on a seat with an activated airbag. Placing your infant on a passenger seat with an activated airbag puts your child at risk of serious injury. For this reason, CYBEX always recommends installing the car seat on the vehicle’s rear seat (if possible behind the passenger). Statistics show that this is the safest place in the car. In a head-on collision, a child has a greater crumple zone on the rear seat where front airbags do not put your child’s safety at risk. If you have no choice other than to use the front passenger seat, please ensure that the seat is pushed back as far as possible.
- Can my child sit in the car seat in a forward-facing position?
No, according to standard R-129 children have to travel in a rearward-facing position until they are at least 15 months old. Your infant’s spine and neck muscles have not yet developed sufficiently to cope with heavier strains. In the event of an accident, the child’s head is propelled forward with a very high force. The child’s spine and neck muscles are not strong enough to withhold these forces. In rear-facing seats, the infant car seat works like a protective shield and protects the child’s sensitive head and neck.
- Is it ok to leave my child in the infant carrier e.g. at home?
CYBEX infant car seats have been engineered to offer the best possible protection for a baby during a car ride without affecting the child´s spine in a negative way. However, we do not recommend leaving the baby sleeping inside the infant car seat at home for long periods of time.
- What kind of clothing should my child wear when seated in the car seat?
Thick clothing prevents the harness from lying snugly against the body. This incorrect belt positioning could result in the harness slipping off the shoulder. For this reason, your child should wear everyday clothing. Thick clothing such as winter jackets should be avoided where possible. Once your child has been positioned in the seat, he/she can be covered with an extra blanket for warmth.
- How do I know when my child needs to change to a seat in the next group up?
We generally advise against switching from a rear-facing Group 0+ car seat (0-13kg, birth to approx. 18 months) to a forward-facing Group 1 seat (9-18 kg, approx. 9 months to 4 years) or to a combined Group 1/2/3 seat (9-36 kg, approx. 9 months to 12 years) prematurely. Even if your baby's feet protrude outside the car seat or your baby can already sit, your child has not necessarily grown out of the seat. However, if your baby's head is protruding above the top edge of the seat and your baby already weighs over 13kg, it is time to change the seat, as it no longer affords sufficient protection to the vulnerable neck and head area. After changing the seat, your baby’s head should be positioned within the protective area of the height-adjustable headrest of the Group 1 seat, enabling your child to see comfortably over the impact shield and to use the cushion as a play area. If your child disappears behind the impact shield, then he/she is definitely too small for a Group 1 seat.
- What do I do if my baby´s head falls forwards while driving, even though the infant carrier is positioned in the vehicle horizontally as indicated by the marker?
The marker on the side of the infant carrier should be aligned to the road level and not the car seat level. Many times during installation, the marker is measured to the level of the car which causes the infant carrier to be misaligned. If, for example, you have a small car, the angle of the rear seat may slope slightly, thus marginally differing from the level of the road. If the Aton is aligned to the slant of the rear seat, the infant carrier may be positioned in the car incorrectly and the baby´s head may fall forward. This is why it is necessary to align the Aton infant carrier to the level of the road. Therefore, please ensure that the marker on the side of the infant carrier is aligned correctly to the road level to ensure your baby’s head does not fall forward.
- Can I use the car seat and base even when the side airbag is activated?
Yes, the side airbag can remain activated when using the car seat.
- Is it ok to keep using a seat after an accident?
We at CYBEX strongly recommend that you replace a seat after any kind of accident. This is because tiny hairline cracks, which may not be visible to the naked eye, can appear in the plastic parts of a seat after an accident. These cracks can pose an increased risk to safety.
- My car seat is faulty, how can I get it repaired?
Please refer to the retailer where you bought your CYBEX seat. They will deal with the matter on your behalf.
- Where can I get replacement parts for my product?
You can order replacement parts from a specialist retailer near you. To find a store near you, simply go to the store locator on our website: http://cybex-online.com/de/retailer.html
- Will CYBEX release an i-Size seat with a safety cushion? /When does CYBEX plan to launch a Platinum i-Size seat?
Whether and when CYBEX will bring out another i-Size product is unknown at this moment in time. The engineers at CYBEX are constantly working in close cooperation with experts from other leading brands and institutions involved in child safety to drive forward the development of new products. As soon as CYBEX decides to launch a new i-Size seat, we will announce our plans on our website and on social media.
