The Evolva 1-2-3 is an award-winning and ergonomically-designed car seat suitable for children from nine months to 12 years old--the widest age range for any seat of its type.
1 out of 4 car accidents is a side collision and side collisions are responsible for 20% of child car crash fatalities, so with this in mind, all Britax seats provide Side Impact Protection. The deeply padded side wings of the Britax Evolva 1-2-3 offer optimum body protection and full head containment. During sleep and rest, they support your child from the sides and help keep your child in the correct position. In the event of a side collision, the side wings absorb the crash energy, reducing the impact on your child.
Britax advocates children remaining in a properly positioned five-point harness for as long as possible. The Evolva 1-2-3 has an integral harness for use with smaller children with five attachment points: two at the shoulder, two at the hips, and one between the legs, ensuring your child remains securely in the seat. The harness can be adjusted with one pull.
This list of all the safety and comfort features should help you decide if the Evolva 1-2-3 is the right car for your child and your requirements.
Multi-group (or combination) car seats are adjustable and grow with the child. Britax has taken multi-group seats to new levels of safety and comfort, so they have become a good choice for many parents, grandparents and those regularly driving children of varying ages.
Since April 2008, the Highway Code has specified that each child who is less than 1.35 meters or younger than 12 must be secured in an appropriate child restraint system which has been successfully tested according to ECE 44/03 or 44/04 standards. A child car seat gives the child a higher sitting position, ensuring the adult seat belt can be positioned correctly across their body.
Booster cushions are better than nothing, but they offer no side impact protection, which is vital as side collisions account for 20% of fatalities. Britax has stopped selling its booster cushions and are instead recommending highbacked car seats. The Evolva 1-2-3 offers this essential side impact protection for your older child.
The Evolva 1-2-3 is fitted with softly padded covers, designed for comfort, practicality and style. The 2011 Evolva-1-2-3 is available in a choice of six covers. Part of the Trend Line range, the Billy cover is black with a subtle grey circle print and made from soft-touch fabric for extra comfort. The cover is easy to clean, being removable and machine washable.
Spare covers are available separately for the Evolva 1-2-3, which you can use when the original is being washed or just to give the seat a new look. For car journeys in hotter weather, you may also want a Summer Cover or a Keep Cool Cover.
When you buy a Britax car seat, you can be reassured that you are benefiting from over 40 years of experience and innovation in child safety. Britax made its first child car seat in the 1960s and has continued to innovate and influence in this market ever since. In collaboration with VW, Britax developed the ISOFIX system that is now an international standard, as well as creating the first adjustable child seat and the first ever baby carrier specifically for newborn passengers.
Britax's products are tested to the highest standards and it is one of very few brands to own in-house crash-test systems--the kind used in the automotive industry-–ensuring it provides optimum protection and safety for children. This is one of many reasons that the brand has become a much-appreciated partner of automobile clubs, government agencies and other transport-related institutions. Beyond this, Britax listens to its customers and feeds their experiences into future product developments, so that their car seats and travel systems meet real-life needs.
