As a member of the award-winning CYBEX infant car seat series, the Aton Q fuses advanced safety and innovative functionality with iconic design.
Aton Q continues the success story of the award-winning Aton family in Gr. 0+ and scores an excellent 1.6 (good) at German consumer testing organization Stiftung Warentest (Test 06/2014). The ADAC rates "good". The ÖAMTC rates "good" with a historic top grade for its excellent side-impact protection when installed with the ISOFIX base. In the categories safety and harmful substances it received a “very good”.
At CYBEX we could never be completely satisfied with the success of products such as the multi-award-winning infant carrier CYBEX Aton 2, which was a Stiftung Warentest Group 0+ test-winner in 6 / 2012 (both with and without the ISOFIX base) and its successor CYBEX Aton 3. Instead, CYBEX strives to continually improve seemingly perfect products. Aton Q follows the success story of the award-winning Aton family in Gr. 0+ and scored an excellent 1.6 (good) at German consumer testing organization Stiftung Warentest (test 06 / 2014). In the belted version, the Aton Q was awarded the top grade* in Gr. 0+ in this test. In the categories »safety« and »harmful substances« it received a »very good« rating. Following the D.S.F. Innovation Principle, the focus in the development of the Aton Q was exceptional Design and sophisticated ergonomics, top-rate Safety, as well as improved Functionality.
In terms of safety, the Aton Q has a height-adjustable headrest with an integrated harness guide and an advanced Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System).
The telescopic Linear Side-impact Protection can be individually adjusted. The very first impact of an accident is redirected to the energy absorbing shell by the extended side protector facing the door. The flexible material structure of the infant car seat further reduces the force of impact and channels it away from the baby.
With the new 8-position height-adjustable headrest with an integrated harness guide, the length of the harness changes automatically when the headrest is adjusted. There is no need for the fiddly threading in and out of the seat belt and it is almost impossible to misuse.
The shoulder pads perfectly round off the CYBEX Aton Q’s comfort factor. The excellent protection features of the Aton Q are further complemented by passive safety measures.
One of the biggest challenges for safety engineers is to develop the best possible transportation for premature babies and very small newborns, whose neck muscles and reflexes are not yet fully developed. Unfortunately this often leads to the baby’s head tipping forward during sleep, which can lead to serious breathing problems. Along with German doctors and midwives, and taking into account the findings of many tests, a function was developed that enables the flattest possible lying angle between head, neck and chest. The risk of suffocation is thereby significantly reduced. This is achieved through a removable seat insert, which also offers more space and comfort for bigger children once removed.
CYBEX Platinum combines safety and functionality with a user-friendly product and exceptional, iconic design. In particular, the CYBEX Platinum products stand out for their details. Although they often go unnoticed, the details are what ensures the products are safe and easy to use. For example, the integrated, extra-large sun canopy disappears elegantly behind a colour coordinated visor.
For maximum UV protection for the baby’s skin, the integrated convertible canopy fulfils the stringent, Australian UV50+ sun protection standard. It can be extended gradually, offering both optimum sun protection and also protection against wind and rain.
Safety, design and mobility in one. The design DNA of the Aton Q extends across all Platinum products and is also present in the CYBEX strollers. With the help of a simple adapter, the infant car seat, together with the CYBEX strollers, turns into a clever and visually harmonious travel system. The Aton Q can also be combined with many other-brand prams and buggies to form a travel system.
In accordance with our safety philosophy, which emphasises ease of use in general and the ISOFIX system in particular, an ISOFIX base for the Aton Q is also available. The Base Q-fix is installed in the car with the ISOFIX connectors, providing additional stability and safety. The infant car seat can be easily snapped into the base which can be used without having to additionally secure it with the car seat belt. An indicator visually confirms that the seat has been installed correctly.
