Safety 1st Elite 80 Air+ 3-in-1 Car Seat - Elian

The Elite 80 Air+ 3-in-1 Car Seat features Air Protect + to keep children from 5 - 80 pounds safer during the ride. Air Protect + combines the advanced protection of the Air Protect cushion system with patented GCell HX foam designed with hexagonal shapes for superior protection around the torso. Together, they provide full-body side impact protection.

More than just a convertible car seat, the Elite 80 works in rear-facing mode for babies up to 40 pounds, then - like traditional convertible car seats - converts to forward-facing with harness, but features an extended weight range to keep children safely in harness all the way to 80 pounds. In its third mode, the Elite 80 goes beyond the traditional convertible seat to convert into a belt-positioning booster car seat for children up to 100 pounds. In short, this three-in-one car seat will carry your little one safely from baby to 100 pounds.

The Elite 80 includes a steel-reinforced metal frame for extra rigidity and a four-position recline for an optimal fit to your car. Color-coded belt paths and installation labels help you install it quickly and correctly, which means less time getting it into your car and more time to enjoy the ride.

Product Highlights

  • Super-extended weight range
    - Rear-facing 5 - 40 pounds and 19" - 40"
    - Forward-facing 22 - 80 pounds and 34" - 52"
    - Belt-positioning booster 40 - 100 pounds and 40" - 57"
  • Featuring Air Protect +
    - Air Protect advanced cushion system protects your child's head, where it's needed most
    - GCell HX patented foam with hexagonal shapes inside the seat provides superior body protection
    - Together, they provide full-body side impact protection
  • Easy-to-identify, color-coded belt paths and installation labels
  • Durable, steel-reinforced metal frame
  • QuickFit Harness system with Center Front Adjustment
  • 10-position headrest grows with your child
  • No-rethread harness
  • Four-position recline for an optimal fit to your vehicle
  • Two integrated cup holders on either side of car seat
  • One-click LATCH
  • Meets or exceeds Federal and ASTM Safety Standards
Air Protect
Air Protect is Advanced Side Impact Protection. It saves lives with an advanced cushion system that protects your child's head, where it's needed most in a side impact crash.
GCell
The specially designed foam that makes up GCell HX features hexagonal shapes that reduce the negative energy a child experiences in a crash. Placed specifically around the torso, GCell HX works in conjunction with Air Protect technology around the child's head to provide full-body side impact protection. The superior design of these combined technologies exceeds all federally mandated crash tests.
Harness rated to 80 pounds
Nearly all harness systems stop at 65 pounds, but with the Safety 1st Elite 80 3-in-1 car seat you can keep your little one safe and secure 19% longer in a harness system that goes up to 80 pounds.
The only seat you'll ever need
This three-in-one car seat accommodates children in three different stages. Starting as a rear-facing infant seat, it transitions to a forward-facing harnessed booster that can be used all the way to 80 pounds. Later, once your child is ready for the vehicle seat belts, it can be used in belt-positioning booster mode up to 100 pounds.
Steel-reinforced frame
A steel-reinforced metal frame provides extra rigidity to the car seat, while soft fabrics and cushions ensure your child enjoys a comfy ride.
Stress-free installation
The Elite 80 Air+ features unique, stress-free installation thanks to easy-to-identify, color-coded belt paths and installation labels. This user-friendly system helps you install it quickly and correctly, which means less time getting it into your car and more time to enjoy the ride.
Easy-to-adjust four-position recline
With the recline handle positioned at the back of the seat, it's easy for parents to adjust to the correct and most comfortable angle while the seat is in the rear-facing position. With four different recline options and the ability to easily adjust the seat while your baby grows, it's simple to customize the fit of the Elite 80 Air+.
Easy-to-adjust 10-position headrest
Kids grow quickly! The easy-to-adjust headrest of the Elite 80 Air+ includes 10 different positions, making it simple to keep the important Air Protect Side Impact Protection positioned around your child's head during the ride, from small to tall.

After months of research for a convertible car seat, I decided on purchasing 2 of these Elite 80. I'm extremely happy with seat in just about every aspect. I needed a seat for my husband's full size Nissan Titan truck and my Toyota Prius. We were adamant that the seat must be installed in the center and we plan to keep our son rear facing as long as we can. Even with having to use the seat belt vs LATCH due to our vehicles not having center LATCH; the install was easy. The seat is on the larger side compared to other convertible seats, but we knew this before buying (we checked them out in person and tried it in our vehicles). My son used to get very sweaty in his infant carrier car seat but not in this seat. It is obviously not as convenient to strap in a baby while leaning into the vehicle versus putting him into his old infant seat while inside and standing over top of him, but it is fine. The bottom latch between the legs has 3 adjustments (2 for rf), the cover can be removed if need be, and I love the simplicity of the no rethread harness/head adjustment (just squeeze and lift up or down). It is very sturdy, well built and very comfortable for our son (8.5 months old, 75th percentile for height & weight).

I bought this car set when my son was just about to outgrow his infant car seat. Installation was straight forward. It is heavy but that is because of how well it is made. My son is a bit large so I decided to buy a larger seat. As my son is only 10 months old (but 24 lbs), I need to install this rear facing. I have a Honda Pilot and installed in the middle of the second row seating, it protruded almost into the front seat. We raised the incline a bit, but then it was so tall, I couldn't see over it if I turned around. Those things I could deal with for a safe seat, but then there were the straps. It could have just been the one I bought, but installed rear facing, it took every ounce of strength I had to tighten the straps. I checked to make sure nothing was twisted. We took the seat out and tried tightening and loosening the straps over and over and sometimes it would work as expected, and others it would just hang up and not budge. That to me was the deal breaker. I need to be assured I can get the straps tightened when my son is in the seat. Again, it could have just be a problem with the particular one I got, but it wasn't worth it to me to get the same one again...so back on the hunt for another seat. He's back in the infant seat for now.

Comments about S1 by Safety 1st Safety 1st 3-in-1 Elite Air 80 Convertible Car Seat - Elian:

I upgraded my 11 month old into this carseat from her infant seat and she is so much more comfortable! It fits well in my Jeep Grand Cherokee, but I can see it being way to big for a smaller car. This car seat is luxe and takes up a lot of space, but it's worth it for her to be comfortable. She loves playing with the cup holders and dropping her binkie in them. She has plenty of space for her feet and can still see out the window well.

On day two of the seat being installed, I had to deal with her getting sick and throwing up. Which meant getting the seat out of the car and taking it apart to wash. It washed very well and after air drying it was perfect to put back together. No damage to the fabric and it's good as new.

I chose this seat over many others, including the more expensive Britax brand, because it simply looked and felt better when comparing in person. And the reviews for safety were exactly what I wanted. This seat is stellar!

Comments about S1 by Safety 1st Safety 1st 3-in-1 Elite Air 80 Convertible Car Seat - Elian:

I bought this as a additional car seat for my son. We had the complete air and love it. The New car seat, Elite 80, is great. It is much bigger and heavier, but much more comfortable for my son, and has more safety features. The only complaint that I have is it is very hard to adjust. I think this is due to the leather type material on the top straps. Unlike the other versions the bottom straps are not adjustable making it a little difficult to get the shoulder straps tight and not making the bottom too tight. I use this in a sedan and it is a little big for the car but fits perfectly in the seat. Definitely recommend.

Comments about S1 by Safety 1st Safety 1st 3-in-1 Elite Air 80 Convertible Car Seat - Elian:

So far I have only used the car seat rear facing bc my daughter is still small. But she seems to love it, and seems very comfortable in it! I know that this car seat is going to last us for years which really makes it worth the price! Installation is pretty simple as well. The only downfall is that the car seat is so big, so may not be great for a smaller car.

Comments about S1 by Safety 1st Safety 1st 3-in-1 Elite Air 80 Convertible Car Seat - Elian:

This carseat has to be one of the best investments thus far. Not only is it rated number 1 on numerous sites, but it also hasn't had any recalls. I love the option of being able to easily rotate my daughter upright or slightly reclined when shes ready for a little nap during car rides. I always get super uncomfortable with the idea that shes sleeping with her head right over her lap, so worries be gone. 2 cup holders are a must, one for snacks and the other for the bottle. Head Side impact guard adds the perfect most important touch. Its like her own mini car within our car, I love it! It is somewhat of a heavy lift but its durability and safety security definitely outweighs any heavy weight. :-) Definitely A Must Have :-)

Comments about S1 by Safety 1st Safety 1st 3-in-1 Elite Air 80 Convertible Car Seat - Elian:

My child is 6mo old (15#) and outgrowing her carrier so I switched her to a convertible. I selected this car seat after much research and visiting various retailers to compare. I like this car seat because It is sturdy, well built, comfortable feeling (lots if padding), easy to operate, can be rear and forward facing and will fit my baby from 5-100#, I will never have to buy another car seat for her! I also like that it has built in cup holders, adjustable headrest to adjust for the height of the child.
The only "con" I have for this seat is that it is fairly heavy but in the defense of the construction...it definaty is not built chinsey. And for this seat (among all convertible seats) they are stationery, it's a pain to take in and out of each car.
My child loves this seat, she's up higher, can see out the window and can see herself in the mirror.

Comments about S1 by Safety 1st Safety 1st 3-in-1 Elite Air 80 Convertible Car Seat - Elian:

Very sturdy carseat! This seat was installed in my husbands classic car (72 Oldsmobile Cutless)with seatbelts he had installed in the car. This was not easy to set up, but I'm betting that's because this car was never meant to have a car seat in it. Once it's in though, it is very secure and sturdy. Our son is very comfortable in it as well and he sure does have room to grow! It takes up a lot of room, but our son is on the large size, so we wanted him to be comfortable and we just didn't think that was possible in a narrower profile seat. I would have put this in my vehicle as well, but I wanted something a little more stylish and ended up installing a Chicco NextFit. I think the little one likes this seat better though...
