Features

Steel Alloy Frame

Steel Alloy Frame Padded with EPS Foam Protects Your Child

The RadianRXT features a steel alloy frame for a strong foundation. Aluminum reinforced side walls and head support are lined with thick, energy absorbing EPS foam for side impact protection. The SafeStop energy absorbing harness provides extra protection for children 20 to 40 pounds. When installed, the harness's bungee-like energy absorption reduces impact when your child is seated in the forward-facing position. Additionally, the RadianRXT boasts rear-facing tether capability to reduce seat rotation in the event of an impact.

Accomodates Growing Children

Versatile Seat Grows With Your Child

The RadianRXT offers the adaptability you need to keep your child's car rides safe and comfortable. The seat fits children in the rear-facing position from 5 to 45 pounds and from 20 to 80 pounds in the forward-facing position. An adjustable, reinforced head support with 12 height settings ensures a custom fit and offers additional side impact safety. With longevity in mind, this model converts to a booster seat for kids up to 120 pounds.

Rear-Facing Position

Deep Seat Design and Plush Cover for a Comfy Ride

All Radian seats have a deep shell to cradle your child for a more comfortable rear-facing ride and to provide a higher rear-facing capacity. A plush cloth surface feels soft against your little one's skin. Expandable sides and a longer seat bottom offer better leg support and help keep children cradled in a custom fit that adapts throughout their physical development. Two forward-facing recline positions allow the RadianRXT to fit a wide variety of vehicle seats. Body support cushions keep infants and babies snug and positioned correctly.

SuperLATCH Installation

SuperLATCH Feature for Secure Installation

Diono's SuperLATCH feature makes use of your car's LATCH system to take advantage of the RadianRXT's full weight capacity.* The SuperLATCH connectors are successfully crash tested for children weighing up to 45 pounds rear-facing and up to 80 pounds forward-facing. In vehicles with LATCH anchors, SuperLATCH is a safe, convenient way to install the RadianRXT. Rubber bottom grips protect your car's upholstery and ensure the seat won't slide after installation.

Compact Design

Slim Profile and Convenient Features

A slim profile means the RadianRXT can sit three across in most vehicles. Because it doesn't have a pedestal, the seat sits relatively low which allows the child to board with ease. The seat folds up when not in use, so storing or transporting the seat is easy. The machine-washable cover and cup holder compatibility (one included, you can add up to four per seat) make this car seat even more convenient.

NCAP Crash Tested

Testing and Warranty Information

This car seat surpasses federal crash test standards and meets NCAP standards, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions. The RXT is tested at its maximum forward-facing, rear-facing and booster weight capacities and is rated for an impressive 10 years of life. The car seat is also FAA approved for use on airplanes. The Diono RadianRXT Birth to Booster Car Seat is backed by a manufacturer's limited one-year warranty.

Product Description

The Diono RadianRXT is a highly versatile car seat that could be the only seat you'll ever need. It comfortably seats rear-facing children from 5-45 lbs, forward-facing children from 20-80 lbs in 5-point harness, then converts to a booster for children up to 120 lbs. It's built for strength and safety with a steel alloy frame, reinforced sidewalls, adjustable head support and our patented SafeStop energy absorbing harness. EPS foam surrounds the child's head and body to provide complete side impact protection. Our unique SuperLATCH system makes installation easy.

The RadianRXT is NCAP crash tested, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions, and the only car seat rated for LATCH use with a child up to 80 lbs. The RadianRXT sits low on a vehicle seat for easy child boarding, features memory foam padding and infant support pillows. Expandable sides and a longer seat bottom provide extra room and comfort for your growing child. One cup holder is included, with the option to add up to 4 cup holders. In addition to all this versatility, it folds flat for travel and storage, has a 10 year life and offers amazing safety, comfort and convenience your child won't outgrow.

Installation was easy for my husband to complete. The car seat is heavy due to the steel frame, but we don't plan to move it among cars or travel on a plane with it much. The shadow color is actually a small pattern in dark gray. We really like it, but I expected more of a solid color from the photo. The seat part and the strap covers are lined in memory foam. I think my daughter is much more comfortable in this seat than her Keyfit30. The low profile sides make it easier for me to scoot her in and out of the seat (she's 13 months and we have it installed in the middle). The tightened strap is a ratchet style. So, instead of pulling till it's snug, you pull repeatedly and it tightens bit by bit. This was strange at first, but now after a week, I really like it. Somehow, it results in a better fit. The straps in her Keyfit30 were always too tight on the hips and too loose on the chest/shoulders. One tip I've found for reducing the number of ratchet pulls is to only loosen the straps a few inches to unstrap the child. There's no need to pull them all the way loose.

Overall, I love this car seat. It will fit my tall daughter rear facing for years (we're shooting for 4) and seems to be comfortable to sit in. The look is very stylish and European to me. We joke that it's her race car seat. I was originally considering this seat and the Chicco NextFit. I'm glad I chose this one. The NextFit looks (to me) like a baby bucket with its high sides, and it has the same strap design that didn't fit my daughter as well.

Very happy with my purchase!

I did a lot of research prior to buying the next step up of car seat from the infant carriers. Everything you research tells you that the Diono Radian is, indeed, one of the major players and is highly rated. However, there are a few areas that the company can improve upon, as with any car seat. I purchased this car seat based on all of my safety research and the fact that it's a 3-in-1, plus the slimmer design. Here are my detailed findings:

Pros:
Slim design
Steel frame for extra safety
3-in-1 so you only need this seat
Folds flat for carrying like a backpack - you'll need to purchase carrying straps

Cons:
Won't be ideal in every car
Very tall in comparison to others - most other car seats seem to be shorter and wider
Expensive
Heavy
Must purchase a few extras to make it ideal
Chest straps aren't easily adjusted
Head wings/rest doesn't lower much
Can't purchase in-store so you must purchase online - can't try it out first
Instructions don't have a trouble-shooting section for common questions/issues

Explanation:
When we first received this car seat we were super excited and I was positive I had made the right choice! Initially, we put it together pretty easily and understood the parts. Installation was a little more troublesome. We tried to install it in both a 2013 Ford Taurus and 2006 Chevy Equinox. Both cars had quite a few latch options and this is where we got confused. When we first installed it it seemed very loose even after a lot of stepping on the seat and tightening. We later found out that we must use the 2 latch hooks that are the closest together to get a tighter install. After we figured that out it seemed quite a bit more stable. I would also recommend tethering the seat when rear-facing because it is very tall and this will stable it more. Now, this seat is best in my Equinox SUV. It doesn't do well in the Taurus because that car is less roomy and it seems like the seat is too tall and/or is too close to the back of the front seats even when used with the angle adjuster. I will also recommend if you purchase this seat you should definitely purchase the angle adjuster otherwise no matter what car it's installed in rear-facing it will be so close to the back of the front seats that the driver will be uncomfortable. The angle adjusters aren't expensive, but again, it's an additional purchase to an already expensive seat. So we finally got it installed the way we like it in my SUV with angle adjuster and tethering in place in the rear-facing position. Now we realize that the chest straps must be adjusted when we tried out my son in the seat. Adjustment should be done prior to taking your first ride because this takes some getting used to. It's not as easy and intuitive as when we were using his infant carseat. So after we got the straps adjusted correctly we tried adjusting the head wings/rest. My son is at the stage (1 year old) where he's no longer an infant, but he's also not able to have his head reach the head rest just yet. Therefore, he doesn't really have a great option for side support until he gets a little bit taller. With all that being said, we used this a few times and it was sturdy and safe. BUT... after we had to purchase a shorter, wider seat for the Taurus we quickly realized that other seats seem just as safe, but the head support, installation, and chest straps seemed easier to work with. So after giving it some thought we decided to return this seat and get 2 of the Chicco Nextfit seats. These are the newest players in the convertible car seat arena and they really did get it right on the first try. I really wish the Diono Radian could work on the head rest and chest straps a bit more. It would also be nice if they included a trouble-shooting section in the back of their instruction manual for common questions and issues. Most of our trouble-shooting had to be done via the internet and youtube videos from other customers.

      Needed quality seats that would fit three across in limited space. Safety was our main concern with the kiddos comfort a close second. Diono delivered on all criteria. Very easy to install as well. Highly satisfied with this product and would recommend.

        Comments about Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat - Shadow:

        I got it because it was supposedly the smallest and safest seat and you could use it both ways[front/rear], but it's a lot bigger than expected. We installed in the husband's jeep Cherokee rear facing and I can barely sit in the front passenger seat, I'm only 5'4... the instructions/seat don't come with a level like most other car seats,so you don't know if you've installed it right... because of the safety ratings we are keeping it,but I'm looking forward to being able to turn it around front facing.

              I received this car seat as a gift from my Father...He did lots of research to find the best one. It is heavy but since we don't move it from car to car that is fine with us. My daughter loves it and is very comfortable in it. I have since purchased a second one for our truck. Straps are a little hard to adjust but once you get the hang of it it will be a breeze.

              This is the 3rd Diono RXT that I own. I have three granddaughters ages 20 months to 5 1/2 and this car seat is perfect for them, and will last them until they are no longer in need of seats. I particularly like that with my arthritic fingers, I can get them into and out of the belts and buckles without too much difficulty! Love them!

              Bought this for my 2 1\2 year old son to put in our other car. We already have the same carseat just a different color in our other car so my husband and I knew we wanted to get another one just for the fact it is very durable and safe and easy to take our son in and out of the seat. Plus it's a convertible car seat and can be used as an infant car seat esp for our newborn to booster and nowadays it's recommended for up to 6 years old so this carseat can grow with my kids and we won't have to worry about buying another one or two. Thanks Diono!

              I can fit my Evenflo Symphony (FF), Graco Snugride 32 and this carseat (FF) in the back seat of my 2008 Toyota Camry. That is the main reason why I bought it. There are other less expensive seats that are slim like this one, but the safety ratings of this carseat were much better. My 5 year old son likes it too, but he has trouble unbuckling himself where he has no trouble with the Evenflo Maestro he uses in my wife's car.

              I love the Diono Radian RXT! It is the second one we bought. (One for each vehicle) it's very slim, fits well with room for 2 more passengers or eventually another car seat. Our son is more comfortable in his Diono Radian RXT then his old safety 1st. He use to cry every time we put him in. Long car rides are no longer an issue. Can be used from infant to 120lbs; very versatile. Easy to clean material makes it perfect for our growing toddler. The only downfall for me, is the fact that its a little more on the heavy side, however the straps to hold it help a lot!
