Designed for use in either the rear-facing or forward-facing positions, the RECARO ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat offers multiple safety features such as side-impact protection, a head restraint, and a vehicle belt lock-off mechanism (forward-facing). Plus, an ergonomic shell structure, breathable mesh fabric, and easy-to-use harness and head restraint adjusters provide comfort and convenience. With an upper weight limit of 70 pounds, the ProRIDE offers one of the highest weight capacities available for convertible car seats with a five-point harness system.

Racing-Inspired Side Impact Protection

Tested to international standards, the RECARO ProRIDE 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.

EasyAdjust No Re-Thread Safety Harness System

The EasyAdjust, five-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 five-point harness system.

Safety Stripe System

The RECARO Safety Stripe System 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.

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. 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.

Comfortable, Ergonomic Seat Molds to Your Child's Shape

Featuring an ergonomic shell structure that offers support for your child, 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. The head restraint is designed with protective and comfortable automotive PUR foam. For comfort and safety, the soft, cushiony car seat is made with expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) that absorbs external forces.

Comfortable, Soft Seat and Convenient Pockets

For no-fuss care and maintenance, the ProRIDE car seat comes in a variety of easy-to-clean fabrics and colors. All cover materials include mesh fabric that provides a superior air circulation system to keep your child cool and comfortable during the ride. The car seat offers storage pockets to keep the loose ends of harness belts tucked neatly out of the way.

The RECARO ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat is backed by a limited one-year warranty.

I love this carseat. My son is very comfortable, and secure. I own a Britax and this Recaro, and I would buy this over the Britax anyday.

Great with a couple of minor flaws
January 20, 2014
So far so good with this seat, except that the pocket that holds one of the straps while not in use has ripped already and the pad the fits underneath the buckle comes off every time so we don't even use it anymore. It takes a bit to get used to the bulk of this seat, but that's the point and we're happy to have our girl well-protected.

Great harness length but not the best for small cars
January 14, 2014
The Recarro Pro Ride in the rear facing set up is not optimal for compact cars with a tapered backseat opening. We still love this seat in the truck rear facing though. There is plenty of harness strap length. I bought the Chicco nextfit for my 10 month old son for use in the mercury Milan rear facing. The Nextfit is a piece of crap compared to the Recarro. The Nextfit is smaller overall but the harmess straps are too short, the harness won't tighten without taking on it and the rubber shoulder pads are annoying. Recarro has much better harness adjustability and it very easy to tighten. The only thing the Recarro Proride could use is the multiple recline positions. This would help make the Proride a better fit in compact cars. Plus the Recarro seat is made in the USA. The Chicco next fit was made in China and it shows.
Great harness adjustability! Made in the USA!
Not great for compact cars in the rear facing direction but great in a truck or vehicle without a tapered door opening. Will work great in a small car in the forward facing position.

That crazy state down south

No Compromises - Big - At times bulky, All of which are done for a reason THE BEST
July 25, 2013
All you need to know is RECARO is a 60 year old German company that makes seats for the Professional Racing & The Automotive industry. Graco for instance is owned by RubberMaid. I should mention that the seat is not mfr'd in Germany. The seat is made right here in the USA!

Highly Recommend This ProRide
December 16, 2012
I have purchased several of these seats. The woman who professionally installed our car seats recommended it. We have been nothing but happy. My husband installed the 3rd one we bought. He said it was not easy, but the point is for your child to be safe, so even if it takes a while to be installed it is worth every second. We feel very secure with our children in these seats.
Works for both boys and girls. The colors are neutral and the material is light weight.
I'm not sure this is a "dislike" but the ONLY annoying thing for me is that this item is bulky, it is hard for me to see out my window. My one year old is rear facing, behind my passenger seat. I drive a lexus SUV so it blocks my vision a little.

The best!!
May 29, 2012
I have three kids and I've been used quite a few car seats and this is the best. I've been using this for 8 months now and my baby girl looks so comfortable, she just loves it. And the color, design and the quality is unbeatable. I am buying one more for my brother's son.

Unmatched safety quality, comfort
May 14, 2012
We bought this for my son one year ago, and the comfort and safety quality is unmatched. We've used several other car seats while traveling, and the latches in the others seemed so flimsy and he looked so uncomfortable, with minimal head support, which helped me appreciate the design quality in the Recaro. Great to know my son's head is protected from a side collision, yes, but I really like that it holds his head up when he falls asleep, which is often since the seat is so comfortable for him. We live where it's hot a large part of the year so the cool fabric is a major bonus. This car seat is bulky, but the quality and sense of security is worth it!

Big and bulky

not so sure...
May 3, 2012
For an upper end seat, the latch system seems to be an afterthought. It doesn't come set up for rear-facing. Understanding the instructions is difficult, and basically you have to re-route the latch strap and decide for yourself if it should be in front of or behind the buckle strap under the seat cover. If you're trying to decide, I'd go with the Britax - a breeze compared to this. I may still exchange.
Well padded, no rethreading the harness straps
