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 - Silverlake:

    I bought this for my 18 mnth old. After pouring over reviews and comparing to every car seat imaginable. We had the first year true fit si. At 18 months she was almost our growing it a and with the top head support it seemed to tall. She's a smaller baby and was already cramped so I knew it wouldn't last. Just the first time in the roundabout she was more comfortable. She still has lots and lots of room before she outgrows it. Even with a bulky winter coat on she is still comfy with lots of room. I have a smaller car and it takes up less space than the true fit. We are in love with this seat. Our car rides are so much more enjoyable. She sits up straighter than the true fit but with the recline if she falls asleep her head doesn't bobble forward. We absolutely love the coloring of the silver lake I was worried it would be to plain. but it is an amazing neutral. I was a huge Graco mom with my first but started to stray as there products changed. :/. I stepped out of my comfort and went with the true fit because it was one of the top rated. But didn't care for it. The britax I LOVE. it is also a lighter weight car seat than the true fit which is much easier for removing for cleaning or switch vehicles.

      This car seat fits in my small Hyundai accent! The fabric has velvet on the harness pads and at the buckle. I love that the velvet is at the buckle so you don't have to worry about pinching! We have other car seats and this by far seems the most comfortable!

      Comments about Roundabout 55 - Silverlake:

      I just installed my new seat and was pleased with the easy to read user's manual. In the past I was certified to put car seats in cars and knew that Britax would be my choice for my own child. I was a little bit concerned because of the extra safety features that can make installation of britax models a little bit more difficult. However, the user manual guided me with the extra difficult parts and the latch system was so easy to use!!! Took me about 10 minutes and I was sure I missed something- but I didn't!! Put my 9 month old in it and he was happy as a clam. AND I love the silverlake pattern.

        This carseat was extremely easy to install, a little hard to make the adjustments on the straps though. Otherwise, it is working perfectly.

          This carseat is very easy to install. I love the fact that both tethers for the latches are able to be tightened separately. Makes for a seat that does not move at all. It took about 2 min to install. Also forward facing it can still be reclined a bit so my son can easily fall asleep. The seat is a good size...not too big. I have an evenflo triumph as well but I like this seat much better.

              We ordered this car seat as a secondary seat for my husbands car. It does require you to manually adjust the straps for their height, which our other one has knobs that you can adjsut but it has the LATCH system which we love. We are very pleased with this seat.

                We bought the Roundabout as a second car seat for my husband's car. We have the Marathon 70 G3 as our main seat. The Roundabout does lack a few convenience features (must rethread to adjust harness height, HUGS), but that is why it is cheaper. So far, we love it. It is very easy to install, and it fits my daughter well. If you like the Britax brand, you will like this seat.

                  Britax has never let me down! I have 3 daughters ages 5 and under and we have tried other products but always come back to Britax - the products seem more comfortable and sturdier than the lower-priced brands. In my opinion, it is money well-spent!

                  My son loves this seat! He started in it at 6 months (due to being to heavy for me to carry in his carrier) and he is still in it at 16 months. So so easy to install, it's comfortable, and if your little one ever pukes on it like mine did, the fabric is not that difficult to take off. I recommend this seat to everyone! It not as big as some of the bigger models either!

                      Bought this as an extra carseat for my husband's car. We have another Britax Roundabout, different color, already. Knew I liked the car seat and continue to be happy with this new one. The color is just like the picture. Very nice. Easy to clean so far. We use it rear-facing for my 14 month old and it fits her well. The carseat fits well in both cars. Pretty easy to adjust the straps. We also have the same carseat forward-facing for our 3-year old. It works well in that position, too.
