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.

Love this seat!
September 23, 2013
The seat fits rear facing in the center seat of my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. I had to call the manufacturer just once to figure out if the seat belt was supposed to go over or under the foam and they were prompt to answer the phone and to answer my question (it's OVER the foam, not under). The seat arrived when Albee baby said it would and I feel so privileged to have this seat in my car. No one sells this seat where I live so it was worth waiting for. My son is 25 lbs and 31 inches long and sits rear facing in this seat just fine. The price was amazing considering what other companies were selling it for on sale.
Easy to install Fabric is nice Easy to adjust the harness and tighen and losen the belts Son seems comfortable
For now I have to lift my son to get him in the seat but after a week we've got it down. I hit his head a couple times but we don't anymore. It wasn't worth sending the seat back for a different one- this is our seat and will be his only one until he outgrows it.
Best Uses:
Extended Rear Facing. Goes to 40 lbs. Front Facing goes to 70.

Great product, poor processing
September 18, 2013
Item is amazing, sturdy, looks great in the evo, and also appears very comfortable. In terms of the product. No complaints, processing however could have been handled better. Box had a good sized hole in it like it received a good impact, but seat without damage, so I guess that argues for the resilience of this product :)

This car seat was a toss up between another britax boulevard 70. I read the reviews for the recaro and I had to try it for myself. I loveeeee this carseat. It is way easier to get my kid out of ie: the strap harness pull actually pulls out for easy in and out of buckling. The seat is more as 1 with the frame of our truck (chevy 4 door) puckup ....and does not move at all. I like how tall the seat is, I love the details of the straps padding and the harness pull. The seat feels like its made with lasting fabric. This seat is alot bigger than the britax however I feel so much more confident if there ever was an accident because he is literaaly protected on all sides around his body. I gave my 3 year old the recaro and put our 7 month old in the 2.5 year old britax backward facing and I'm really not feeling 100% about it. It's very flimsy and as tight as it can be on the seat buckle. The recaro literally doesn't move while in the forward facing seatbelt latch. I may sell my britax and opt for another recaro. The only thing I can say no to good about the recaro is : we originally bought the recaro for our new little baby and we were going to use it rear facing . I installed it correctly, even had a chp look at it and it wasn't very tight on the latch seatbelt. There was play in the seat itself when u tried to move it. AlsO when I put my son in the seat he was sitting so far forward his little head would zonk over every ride and that cannot be safe. His feet would touch the seat in front of him and he just hated the seat. It looked very awkward do I tried to recline it and it moved a lot so I just forward faced it & put my 3 yr old in it and it's awesome!!! For the price, the quality is way better than britax. I wouldn't want to travel on a plane with it though.
Quality fabric, comfort details in shoulder padding from seatbelt, harness pull padding, made very sturdy, good looking, very secure one in latch system, easy to take in and out. It's bigger than the britax boulevard but I feel my child is more secure, kid can see out because it is higher up.
Rear facing is weird with a little baby. The seat doesn't seem to lock in on the latch system rear facing as good as it does forward facing. Awkward rear facing baby positing -makes bb hunch fwd. some may think it is a bit big.
Best Uses:
Forward facing

You might not believe, me but I've bought 2 of this proride last month. My husband who is a car racer and asked me to get a Recaro Car seat. I was giggling and disblief there was such thing. I went against his advise and got 3 britax boulevard 70 cs ($300 and up) and I hate the sewn in velcro for the strap scratches me and my daughter. So I decided to get 2 proride just for the heck when it was on sale fo $178. I compare it side by side with Britax, I'm telling you, RECARO IS WAY BETTER THAN BRITAX. It's so sturdy, well made, wonderful strap holder, take up less space and tall enough where my daughter loves to see thru the windshield with rear facing then forward facing. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH RECARO. THEY MAKE CAR SEAT FOR CAR RACER! GO GET ONE OR TWO.

Awesome carseat
January 6, 2012
This is a great, sturdy carseat that will last a long time. It fits perfectly in our small car rear facing, and love that it matches the actual seats of the car itself. Very soft material for baby too.
Very sturdy, well made. Material seems comfortable for baby, straps dont get tangled. Easy to use, easy to latch.
It's really tall - you cant use the baby mirrors to see your baby if you rear face. And it's really hard to hand baby things from the front seat too.
