Britax Roundabout 55 - Onyx

The Britax Roundabout 55 achieves revolutionary head safety through the use of Britax SafeCell Technology in the base, integrated steel bars, and energy absorbing Versa-Tether that work together to minimize head excursion and reduce the risk of head injury during a frontal impact. The Roundabout 55 also incorporates Britax Side Impact Protection, offering a five-point harness, as well as multiple buckle and recline adjustments. A body pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning.

Features:

  • Base with SafeCell Technology designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat
  • Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
  • Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • Side Impact Protection with energy-absorbing EPP foam distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body
  • Premium Lower LATCH Connectors for a quick and simple installation featuring a push button for easy release
  • Certified for Aircraft Travel
  • Includes car seat base

    Comments about Roundabout 55 - Gumdrop:

    We bought this car seat to replace our Britax Roundabout 50 after a car accident. Many improvements have been made to this seat since we bought it last. We really like the steel bar construction and the safety cell. It feels like an even sturdier seat than before. The belt also folds forward much easier and there are pads that protect the belt from hurting my daughter's shoulders.

    Comments about Roundabout 55 - Gumdrop:

    I had done a pretty good amount of car seat research before deciding on the Britax Roundabout 55. I like that it ranks very high in safety, was easy to install (I learned a lot from when I had the state police install my baby's first car seat) and is in such an attractive pattern. It just seems to be such nice quality and made with attention to detail. There are even little velcro pieces that hold the harness straps out of the way while you put your baby into the seat. The only thing that I have found that I don't like is that the cover is hand wash, line dry. My baby threw up all over the seat the other day and after hand washing the cover in the bathtub, it took two days to dry. Other than that, it is great and I feel that the price is totally reasonable. I expect to pay a moderate amount of money for something that is for my child's safety.

        Comments about Roundabout 55 - Gumdrop:

        We ordered the Britax Roundabout when our daughter was 6 months old because she was too tall for her infant seat. Five months later, we all love it and we just ordered a second one. It fits very well in our Mazda Tribute (small SUV). After trying -- and quickly returning -- 2 other carseats for our second vehicle, we made the obvious choice to go with what works.
        We wrestled the other carseats to try to secure them in our new minivan with the LATCH. We could not get them tight enough or leveled properly after hours of effort. Finally, my husband decided to take the Britax from our other car -- two minutes later we had it installed in the minivan, completely level and very secure. So easy and safe!

        Looks: the gumdrop pattern is subtle and gender-neutral, but pretty enough for a baby girl

        Installation: fast, safe, and very secure

        Comfort: the fabric is plush and soft, it doesn't overheat in the summer and stays snuggly in winter; it comes with soft strap covers so baby never gets strap marks on her neck

        Ease of use: fairly easy to loosen and tighten straps when getting baby out or putting her in the seat

        The Britax is a great seat, especially for the price. If your seat is not secure or installed properly, you're just wasting money anyway.

          The car seat is fantastic and easy to install. If not using the latch system, my only suggestion would be to make the seat belt slot wider (as in previous Britax models). Otherwise, good all around.

            Love this car seat and the safety that it provides. My daughter is very comfortable in it and the side impact protection is great because that is always a worry of mine. My only complaint is that my daughter became sick and threw up all over herself and the car seat. She is better but this gumdrop fabric is stained after a lot of cleaning. But, I guess that comes with having kids. I would just like this fabric to hide the messes more.
