ADJUSTABLE IMPACT SHIELD
The optimized impact shield of the Pallas S-Fix reduces the risk of serious neck injuries without confining the child and has an improved overall crash performance. The one-hand adjustment of the impact shield ensures ease of use for the parent.

ADAC TEST WINNING CAR SEATS: THE PALLAS & SOLUTION FAMILY
Since 2008, CYBEX has won 14 ADAC awards for both the Pallas & Solution car seat lines. CYBEX CTO Dr. Raoul Bader is tells you why:
THE SAFEST WAY OF TRANSPORT
CYBEX recommends traveling in rear-facing car seats for as long as possible ideally up to the age of 4. In rear-facing position, the energy of a frontal collision is distributed evenly over the large area of the seat and the sensitive body areas of the child are perfectly protected.
However, if parents decide to choose a forward-facing car seat for their children – because not all children like to travel or can travel in a rearward-facing car seat (e.g. a two-door vehicle) - CYBEX’ forward-facing car seats equipped with an adjustable patented impact shield are the reliable alternative to offer a high degree of protection for your child.
The forces of a collision are distributed over the large area of the impact shield, which significantly reduces the strain on the critical neck, shoulders, and head by 40% in comparison to a conventional forward-facing seat with harness system without ER-Tech. In this sense, the safety cushion can be pictured as an already inflated airbag. The belt does not cut into the child and the vulnerable neck and shoulder area are protected.
WHY IS TESTING A CAR SEAT SO IMPORTANT?
The test criteria of e.g. the ADAC test are far stricter than the requirements of the standards and are constantly being tightened. Accordingly, the acceptable critical values and categories are under constant review. 2011, for example, saw the implementation of tests for harmful substances in car seats. Therefore, tests of this kind make a significant contribution to enhance the safety of car seats and infant car seats over time.
EXAMPLE ADAC: HOW ARE CAR SEATS TESTED?
The child seat test is carried out by a consortium of different mobility clubs and consumer organisations (ADAC, ÖAMTC, TCS, Stiftung Warentest) twice a year. The mobility clubs and consumer protection organizations publish the test results. The German automobile club ADAC tests car seats and infant car seats from each group in front and side impact collisions. The front impact simulates a car front impact test with 64 km/h whereas the side impact is simulating a car side impact test with 50 km/h. Depending on the weight category, dummies of varying sizes are used in various crash situations to simulate the effects of an accident on children of differing ages and weights as accurately as possible. In addition to the crash test, further tests are carried out to evaluate the safety of the child seats with regards to misuse potential, handling, ergonomic design, cleaning properties, workmanship and the presence of harmful substances. The car seats are also tested in everyday use with real children and parents.
