The Comfi Astra is a Convertible Booster Seat. It uses the in-built harness from approximately 6-months through to 4-years-old. After this, it converts into a Booster Seat with the vehicle’s lap & sash seatbelt once the child reaches the middle marker, which is outgrown at approximately 8-years-old.
It’s slimmer than it’s predecessor at 47.5cm, and features new innovations in safety, comfort, and ergonomics.
Innovative Shell Design
The redesigned shell incorporates a new ergonomic shape for extra comfort. It maintains a super strong blow moulded construction, larger belt path access, and our unique anti-submarining technology. This means it’s the safest, comfiest Convertible Booster Seat we’ve ever created.
In a frontal accident, the unique ‘pommel’ design of the seat base, and the air-bag-like blow moulded construction acts in a similar way to the front seats of your vehicle. The sloped surface results in a larger downward force, rather than lateral. It decelerates the child and results in reduced forward movement and submarining. In Booster Seat mode, the anti-submarine designed armrests work in tandem with the new base. It keeps the lap belt down across your child’s lap. Combine this with the included SafeGrip Belt Clamp and it ensures the lap belt does not ride up into their soft abdominal area.
Additionally, our exclusive under-the-seat belt path reduces the forward movement of the restraint in a frontal accident. The new larger access areas under the armrests make installation easier than ever before. The Comfi also features a recline position for extra comfort for your most precious cargo.
Air Cocoon Technology™ (A.C.T)
Comfi Astra features Air Cocoon Technology™ (A.C.T.). This enhances side impact protection through blow moulding design, which dramatically reduces the impact forces during a crash. The Comfi Astra’s high blow moulded backrest and large side wings act like airbags, which greatly reduces the forces on a child’s head and body in a side-impact accident.
The easy-care Active Fabric™ covers on the Comfi are hard wearing, cool and breathable. The machine-washable, press-stud covers can easily be removed for cleaning without having to uninstall the restraint, as can the shoulder pads. Astra covers are as beautiful as they are practical and are available in three fresh colours.
