With the Solution Q3-fix we complete the CYBEX Platinum product line with a pioneering seat for older children aged approximately 3 – 12 years (15 – 36 kg). The Solution Q3-fix combines the best features of this long-established and award-winning product line, with the latest findings from material and safety research and the iconic design of the CYBEX Platinum product range.
An all-round analysis of the seat’s design sparked the further development of the already high safety level of the Solution series in this new generation. For example, protection in the case of a frontal collision was further improved with sophisticated new technology. The vital combination of side protectors, reclining headrest and optimized Linear Side-impact Protection (L. S. P. System Plus) were re-aligned, resulting in an additional level of safety in a side-impact crash when compared to the Solution X range.
An indispensable element of the Solution series safety concept is the patented, 3-position reclining headrest. Here too we were able to further improve side-impact protection with the development of a new configuration. Thanks to the adjustable headrest, the child’s head is tilted back which can prevent the dangerous tipping forward during sleep. The child’s sensitive head and neck area is also protected in a side-impact collision, as it remains in the seat’s safety zone created by the head and side protectors. In addition to improving passive safety, the patented headrest ensures a comfortable sleeping position.
CYBEX Solution Q3-fix is equipped with our tried-and-tested ISOFIX Connect system. The seat is fixed into the car’s ISOFIX system with connectors that can be clicked into place, while the child is strapped in with the car seat belt. The ISOFIX Connect system provides additional stability and safety in the car. In vehicles that do not have ISOFIX, the connectors of the seat can simply be retracted and the seat and child secured with the car seat belt.
Most children reach 55% of their total height by the age of three, and by the age of 12 have completed 89% of their growth. This results in an average growth of 60 cm during the period in which the seat is used. In order to provide the best possible protection and comfort for the entire duration of use, the new CYBEX Solution Q3-fix has an integrated height and width adjustment — a new safety function for flexible and optimal alignment of the seat to the child’s size. With a one-handed mechanism and 12 adjustment positions, the height and width of the seat can be adjusted simultaneously. The seat can grow an additional 8 cm in width and 20 cm in height. The child thereby always remains in the optimal protection zone of the head and shoulder protectors and never feels restricted, even towards the end of the usage period.
Continuing the CYBEX tradition of having fashionable colours, the PLATINUM car seats come in a great range of colours in two fabric variations.
Comfort version: the soft and cozy comfort version of the Platinum car seats features 5 colour combinations.
Plus version: the Plus version gets its characteristic appearance through an exclusive, very hard-wearing fabric with a twill effect in a denim look. These child car seats are available in 7 different colours.
Patented Head Protection
Optimised reclining headrest
The optimised reclining headrest prevents the child's head from falling forward while asleep. The head is actively guided into a safe position. An indispensable element of the Solution car seat series safety concept is the 3-position reclining headrest. Thanks to this adjustability, the child's head is tilted back which prevents the dangerous tipping forward during sleep. The child's sensitive head and neck area is protected in a side-impact collision, as it remains in the car seat's safety zone created out of head and side protectors. Besides improving passive safety, the patented headrest also ensures a comfortable sleeping position.
Automatic Height and Width Adjustment
The car seat grows with the child
Most children reach 55% of their total height by the age of 3 and by the age of 12 have completed 89% of their growth. This results in an average growth rate of 60 cm during the period in which the car seat is used. In order to provide the best possible protection and comfort for the entire duration of use, the CYBEX Solution Q3-fix car seat features an integrated height and width adjustment - a new safety function for flexible and optimal alignment of the seat to the child's size. With a one-handed mechanism and 12 adjustment possibilities, the height and width of the seat can be adjusted simultaneously. The seat can grow up to 8 cm in width and up to 20 cm in height. The child thereby always remains in the optimal protection zone of the head and shoulder protectors and never feels constricted, even towards the end of the usage period.
L.S.P. System Plus
Optimised Linear Side-impact Protection
The optimised Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System Plus) absorbs impact energy at a very early stage. The new width adjustment works hand in hand with the L.S.P. System Plus - an optimised Linear Side-impact Protection. The force of a side-impact collision is thereby systematically reduced by the additional impact shields as well as the shoulder and head protectors. At the same time the body's kinetic energy resulting from an accident is absorbed at a very early stage and the head is actively directed into a secure position.
AIR VENTILATION SYSTEM
For an optimal seating climate
The air ventilation system provides a comfortable seating temperature even on hot days. A further building block in the comfort package of the Solution Q3-fix is a mesh of ventilation channels that run through the backrest and seat components. Air can circulate through ventilation holes on the front of the seat and under the seat cover, and is channeled away from the child by additional openings in the backrest. This ensures a comfortable sitting temperature even on hot days.
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.
