With adjustable backrest, adjustable headrest and comfortable seat

The upper material is made of polyester. The cover can be removed and washed at 30 degrees Celsius in the washing machine. This makes it easier for you to handle with him. Therefore, if your kid spills his juice, the cleaning is easy.

The installation in your car is also simple. This model has Isofix holders. With it you can firmly connect the child car seat to your car. You still need the seat belt to buckle up your child. It can be threaded through the guide system under the armrests. This ensures that the child seat holds even more stable. Secondly, your little one is protected from being thrown through the car in the event of a collision. The guide system also offers the advantage that the belt fits tightly, but does not constrict your child.

If your car does not have an Isofix mount for child car seats, you can also attach this Cybex child seat only with the seat belt. So that the Isofix holders do not disturb, you can select with this model whether you would like it with or without these holders.

The Cybex Silver Solution X-Fix comes a little slimmer than its siblings from the Cybex family. On the sides, the impact protection is mainly found in the upper area. At the bottom, this allows older users a little more freedom of movement for their arms. With this child seat stands out especially the cheaper price. We can especially recommend it as a successor model for older children if they previously had a class 1 seat.

Can you use this seat with a still existing safety gear?

No, the child seat is designed to be used without a safety harness.

From what height can you use the seat?

Customers report that their child could sit in this seat from a height of 95 centimeters.

What are the two enclosed plastic parts for??

These are threading aids for ISOFIX. The brackets are not easily accessible in every car. These plastic parts are attached once to the ISOFIX of the car and facilitate the attachment of the seat. This is especially helpful if the seat is to be installed and removed often in the car.

Is it possible to remove the back part of the seat?

Yes, this is possible by loosening the plug-in connection between the booster seat and the back section, and is useful for transport or cleaning purposes. However, the seat should only be used completely.

Most customers praise the child seat’s good price-performance ratio. With only 7 kilograms of own weight, it is also very easy to transport or convert from one car to another. Many customers report squeaking noises in the area of the headrest, which seems to be due to the polystyrene pads. There is also room for improvement in the harness: sometimes the harness slips during the buckling process, sometimes the children can’t manage it on their own. However, the seat comfort scores very well with parents and children on average.

Advantages and disadvantages:

  • Height-adjustable headrest and shoulder pads
  • Headrest tilt adjustable
  • Adjustable backrest
  • Comfortable seat cushion
  • Side impact protection system
  • Optional Isofix bracket
  • No reboarder option

Maxi-Cosi RodiFix Air Protect

Maxi-Cosi RodiFix AirProtect (AP) Child Seat, Growing With Group 2/3

  • GROUP 2/3: Maxi-Cosi booster seat for children from ca. 3.5 to 12 years (approx. 15-36 kg or 100-150.
  • GROWS WITH YOU: The car seat grows in height and width with your child, thanks to the simple.
  • AIRPROTECT TECHNOLOGY: Optimum side impact protection for head, lumbar region, hips – Patented.
  • EASY HURT GUIDANCE: The car booster seat’s unique harness guidance system ensures that it.
  • ISOFIX INSTALLATION: For a safe and stable attachment of the Maxi-Cosi child seat of the group.

From 15 to 36 kilograms children can also sit in the Maxi-Cosi RodiFix Air Protect. It is a child seat of the class 2/3, which is suitable up to the age of 12 years. In the car, the forward-facing seat is easy to install via the ISOFIX mount. The guides for this are movable, can be pushed out of the base and fix the seat as the car’s back seat dictates. However, the RodiFix can also be used without the ISOFIX brackets.

The manufacturer has integrated its patented Air-Protect side impact protection into the headrest, which reduces the risk of head injuries in the event of an accident. The side protectors on the back are movable, so they do not restrict the freedom of movement even for somewhat wider children. They contribute like the adjustable headrest to the fact that the car seat grows along with the child. However, the dimensions that the seat takes up in the car are correspondingly large in the course of the period of use. With a maximum width of 54 centimeters, it can be tight if someone is to sit on the back seat in the middle. On the other hand, the side parts of the otherwise quite slim seat also give way in the other direction when there is not so much space available.

The child is strapped in with the car seat belt. It easily snaps into the integrated seat belt guide. To remove it, parents have to pull a small lever so that the belt guide releases the belt again. The seat can be pushed forward slightly via the base so that the backrest tilts backwards. When the child falls asleep, this slight reclining position helps to prevent the head from slumping forward. Two hands are needed to operate it.

The cover is made of a mix of materials (cotton, polyester, viscose) and can be removed. Cleaned in the washing machine, it air dries quickly and is ready again for the next trip. The weight of the Maxi-Cosi RodiFix is surprising: the seat weighs just 6.2 kilograms. It is therefore quickly converted when another vehicle is used.

The Maxi-Cosi RodiFix clearly scores over the functions of the integrated base. For one thing, the ISOFIX mounts are completely retractable and extendable. This allows flexible use. In addition, the seat can be adjusted in its angle of inclination independently of the vehicle via the base. It is therefore possible to have a slight reclining position, even if the car has a rigid back seat. This is a special feature for group 2/3 seats.

How to adjust the headrest?

At the top of the headrest is a button. By applying pressure, the anchoring comes loose and the headrest can easily be pulled upwards.

How high can the headrest be extended??

The headrest reaches a maximum height of 77 centimeters.

The backrest can be dismantled?

No, the seat is fixed in itself. It can not be disassembled into two parts.

What parents like best about the Maxi-Cosi RodiFix is how well it fits and how easy it is to buckle up, thanks to the cleverly designed harness guide. The easy installation in the car also scores points. One point of criticism from many users relates to the workmanship: some edges, especially on the sides, seem quite sharp and have occasionally led to scratching injuries. This is particularly noticeable when the cover is refitted. Caution is therefore required here.
