Introducing the RECARO Performance RIDE with the HERO harness system. HERO is a new, exclusive and innovative safety feature by RECARO. HERO ensures the highest level of protection and comfort by positioning the shoulder pads to appropriately fit the child's neck, head and shoulders while resisting harness twisting and ensuring proper chest clip positioning. The Performance RIDE includes the RECARO Safety Stripe System, which is a racing-inspired white stripe that is clearly visible on the outside edge of the 5-point harness. This stripe is designed as an easy alert to parents that a twist could occur, or has begun, thus preventing a safety hazard. Additional features include added mesh for breathability, improved comfort pad with memory foam, a cup holder and stylish trim details.
The Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat has twist-resistant straps and a 5-Point harness system that holds children from 5 to 40 pounds rear-facing or 20 to 70 pounds forward-facing. It incorporates RECARO Side Impact Protection technology inspired by four decades of racing seat safety.

Racing-Inspired Side Impact Protection
Tested to international standards, the RECARO Performance RIDE offers an intelligent design that protects a child during a side-impact incident. The car seat's enhanced head wings shield the head and face while a head rest limits neck movement. For added safety, reinforcements at the sides, hips, and thighs help stabilize the torso and pelvis areas.
Comfortable, Ergonomic Seat Molds to Your Child's Shape
Featuring an ergonomic shell structure that offers support for your child’s body, the car seat is pleasant and cozy for short errands or long road trips. The harness system features soft pads to make it more comfortable for your child. The head restraint is designed with protective and comfortable PUR foam for extra padding and added protection. For comfort and safety, the soft, cushiony car seat is made with expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) that absorbs external forces while providing your child ample room for growth. The seat cushion is also equipped with a memory foam seat pad for enhanced comfort.
EasyAdjust No Re-Thread Safety Harness System
The EasyAdjust, 5-point harness can be customized to properly accommodate your growing child. It adjusts with a simple turn of a knob without the hassle of rethreading any straps. TrueLock belt lock-off prevents any slippage from your vehicle's seat belt when used forward-facing.
With an upper weight limit in the forward-facing position of up to 70 pounds, this car seat has one of the highest weight capacities for any convertible car seat with a 5-point harness system.
Built-in LATCH System for Added Stability
Designed with a push-button LATCH system, the car seat is easy to secure to your vehicle. The car seat offers a universal top tether system as an added anchor (for forward-facing). The rear-facing recline lever allows you to adjust the seat to best fit your vehicle's backseat.
Assembled in the United States, the car seat meets all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for Child Restraint Systems (FMVSS 213) and Flammability of Interior Materials (FMVSS 302). It is also certified for air travel when used with the plane's seat belt.
