The KIO model is another seat from RECARO, which can be used by children who weigh up to 18 kg and are between 60 and 105 cm tall, i.e. from about 3 months to even 4 years of age. The seat adapts to the growing child and this is made possible by adjusting the height of the headrest which is integrated in the seat belt. The RECARO KIO also takes care of the travelling comfort - the foam in the seat adapts perfectly to the shape of the child's body and the innovative ventilation system prevents overheating, especially on hot days.
Safe travel position
The RECARO KIO seat can be installed in the car using the ISOFIX base, which is also compatible with another car seat model from this brand - namely AVAN. This allows parents who started their adventure with RECARO with an earlier model to continue. The seat can be installed a rearward-facing or forward-facing position. However, it is important to bear in mind that it is five times safer to travel in a backwards-facing position and that children under the age of 15 months should always travel in this way. Subsequently, it is possible to position the seat forward-facing.
Additional side protection
The RECARO KIO seat uses the ASP (Advanced Side Protection) system to enhance the protection of the child in a side impact. These are special components in the seat that can be pulled out and activated on the side of the car door and are designed to reduce the impact force in a possible side collision.
Innovative solutions in the ventilation system
The RECARO KIO child seat is designed to provide the highest level of ventilation comfort for your child. This is important when you want to prevent your child from overheating on hot days and to provide him or her with fresh air. The RECARO KIO has special openings in the outer shell and inner energy-absorbing layer to ensure proper air circulation. In addition, there are mesh inserts in the upholstery, which also influence ventilation.
Special buckle for easy insertion of the child into the seat
An intelligent buckle with a 5-point seat belt is a solution that will make everyday life easier for the parents. It consists in the fact that when the child is pulled out of the seat, the buckle leans forward and already remains in this position. The buckle does not prevent the child from taking up the correct position the next time the child is put into the seat, and the parent can fasten the child in the seat belts easily and quickly.
