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.

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.

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.

Fantastic car seat
February 28, 2017
Easy to install. Straps release and tighten smoothly and evenly. Good quality fabric. My son seems very comfortable. Easy to recline when rear-facing.

So far so good! A little confusing to install - however our tall 7mos old loves this and is really comfortable in if. She usually screams in other car seats, but enjoys the ride in this well padded convertible seat!
ConsHard to disassemble
Best UsesBest for tall infants!
Great Car Seat
September 10, 2016
I bought this car seat to use in my vehicle with my great-granddaughter. Being a retired EMS professional, safety is a major issue with me. After reading all the reviews and making comparisons, I chose this seat and am very happy with it. While it is a little difficult to install properly, it is so sturdy that I know in a crash, that child will not go anywhere. I would encourage anyone installing a car seat to go to a local fire station who has certified technicians who can assist to make sure the seat is properly installed.
ConsA little difficult to install

Great seat, heavy and well-made
August 25, 2016
I bought this to replace a Britax convertible seat and am very happy with it. It is well made and easy to install. It is big and heavy, like any convertible seat, but I like it better than the Britax. My baby is almost 3 months and she fits great on the smallest setting, I probrably would not have used it when she was an 8lb newborn. If you can get the 'hero' straps I would recommend them, they prevent the harness from twisting.
Proseasy to buckle the straps

I was a little hesitant buying from albeebaby after reading some of the reviews! Shipping from New Jersey to Utah was only 4 days after I placed the order until I recieved my item! The production date on the car seat was from the previous month! So it was a brand new straight from production! The item came in great shape and exceeded our expectations! Will buy from this company again! Would recommend albeebaby as your baby need supplier!

Great car seat!
September 28, 2015
I cant stress over how amazing this car seat is. I purchased the Maxi Cosi pria 70 and love it as well but this car seat suits my family better. The material is great and comfortable and I just love the recline feature in the front of the car seat facing forward. So easy to pull forward and recline when my daughter falls asleep in the car.
ProsRecline feature Material

My baby love it
June 25, 2015
We originally bought a Britax Advocate for my baby. But when we put him in, he always cries all the way. It looks comfy for me, but he just did not like it. So we researched and bought Recaro. We happily found out our baby likes this one very much. We don't need to hear him cry in the car
By Arturo
Great seat! Very much recommend!
May 16, 2015
We have had our new recaro seat for about 2 weeks now , and we love it. our son can see out the window now compared to his old car seat and he can still face to the rear which we love because it is safer. Super easy to buckle the child in and has nice comfortable padding. Only thing I would say I did not like is that it is a struggle to get the belt through the rear facing whole compared to the front facing. Over very much recommend to all people.
By Alexandria Bolling
Love the style but can't wait to face forward!
November 12, 2014
I really love that this product is USA built! The quality is great and the style is even greater! My only complaint is in my particular car ( 99 Toyota 4 Runner) it's really difficult to get my little one in and out since he's still rear facing. Im really looking forward to turning it forward!

Absolutely love this carseat!
September 2, 2014
Love it! Extremely sturdy and well made. Installation was quick and easy. After having bought other brands for our previous children, they do NOT even compare to how well made and safe this feels. One of the best purchases you can make for your child. Extremely impressed.

Love this seat!
August 20, 2014
My son is much happier in this seat compared to his infant carrier. He can see out the windows now and is much cooler. Very sturdy and safe! i feel much more comfortable with him in this seat! It is a little awkard to install in rear facing position, but worth it! And this website has the best deal!
ProsSafety and stylish! Son loves it!
ConsRather large, I drive a 4 door Honda Civic and it takes up a lot of room, but it's worth it!

Nice seat
May 31, 2014
This is a nice comfy seat, but rear facing installation with the latch system is not nearly as simple as the marathon that I also bought for my 5 month old daughter. I had to use a rolled towel to adequately recline it, which is disappointing for the cost of the seat. The head protection is great, but also makes it difficult to take my daughter in and out of the seat when rear facing. That being said it is a high quality seat and I'm sure will be great when my daughter is forward facing.
By Mama
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.
By Melissa
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.
ProsGreat harness adjustability! Made in the USA!
ConsNot 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.

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.
ProsEasy to install Fabric is nice Easy to adjust the harness and tighen and losen the belts Son seems comfortable
ConsFor 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 UsesExtended 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 fits my daughter perfectly. It is easy to install. I love the ease with which you can adjust the seat.
