Product Description

The RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat has all-new features such as HERO harness system technology and cloud comfort memory foam. HERO is a new, exclusive & innovative safety feature by RECARO. HERO ensures the highest level of protection and comfort by positioning the shoulder pads to appropriately fit the child's neck, head and shoulders while resisting harness twisting and ensuring proper chest clip positioning. The Performance Series includes the RECARO Safety Stripe System, which 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. Additionally, all-new features include added mesh for breathability, improved comfort pad with memory foam, a removable cup holder and stylish trim details. The Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat has twist-resistant straps and a 5-Point harness system that holds children from 5 to 40 pounds rear-facing or 20 to 65 pounds forward-facing. It incorporates RECARO Side Impact Protection technology inspired by 4 decades of racing seat safety.

On February 2, 2014 we were traveling west on the 210 freeway in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We were driving in a 2008 Toyota Camry in the slow lane, traveling approx. 65-70 mph. A 2006 Toyota Corolla was also traveling west bound in the car pool lane, traveling approx. 70 mph. The woman reached back to hand a wipe to her child in the back seat which caused her to hit the cement center divider. She traveled across 3 lanes and hit us on the driver side, right into the driver and passenger doors. Our side curtain and driver seat airbag deployed. We were pushed onto the underpass embankment and spun around. We traveled back across the freeway and landed in the fast lane facing east. My husband was knocked unconscious and he and I both sustained cervical sprains, whiplash and soft tissue damage. (Diagnosed the following day at our physicians office). Our daughter was riding in the backseat on the passenger side. Other than being severely frightened by the loud impact and airbags she was completely unharmed. On February 6, 2014 Mercury Insurance deemed our car a “total loss.� I can never thank RECARO enough for keeping my most precious gift completely unharmed! We will be customers for life!!

My husband finally got the car this year he'd been pining for since they were introduced in the U.S., a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR. He didn't want to be the only one to enjoy this car, he wanted our 2 year old son to enjoy it with him. We werent aware Recaro made children's carseats until the purchase of my husband's first love, but knew they were the perfect fit for us once we found out. The evolution has Recaro seats to keep the adults safe, so we knew we'd trust the same company with our precious sons safety. My son loves that he has a race seat in his daddys race car, and we love that it's a safe and trustworthy brand. The seat fits well in the middle of the back seat and was easy to install. The harness and buckles adjust easily and my 2 year old never complains about being uncomfortable. We like the seat so much, we bought two more for our other vehicles and having another son due in January, are planning on buying Recaro infant seats for him. My husband loves having the Recaro in his Evolution, as much as our son does, they love their father son drives in their matching seats, and I love trusting that my boys are as safe as can be in their "race car seats"!

Easy to use

By Havasumama

from Lake Havasu City, AZ, United States

Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Vibe:

We purchased this seat almost a year ago. Whike I love the easy adjust harness, there are a few features I am not as crazy about. This particular seat does not give much leg room for rear facing passengers, causing the hip portion of the harest to dig inot the thigh area. It was difficult to quickly route an airplane seatbelt through the rear facing belt path. The LATCH connector belt if also very short, making it difficult to get enough leverage to get a tight install. My daughter is comfortable in this seat, for the most part, and I know she is safe.

Amazing Comfort

By tuna

from Florida, United States

Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Vibe:

We purchased the Plum seat for our daughter almost 3 years ago and it has grown with her very well. We started her rear facing just before turning one and she always seemed so comfortable. She is very tall but still fits in it forward facing at four years old. I like that it sits higher up and allows her to see out of the window. Now we just need to get a Sapphire one for our little man since he is looks so uncomfortable in his other bucket carrier. My only complaint is that you can't remove the cover to wash it. So we end up hosing it down outside, scrubbing it and putting it in the sun to dry, which usually takes a full day of sun exposure.

Overall, great car seat

By Honey4Drea

from Norwalk, IA, United States

Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Vibe:

We've been using this car seat with our daughter since she was 10 months old. She's now 14 months old and we really like the seat. She looks comfortable and sleeps so well in it for long trips. It's easy to get the straps just right. The only issue we've had is with the installation. We've had difficulties in both of our vehicles (2014 Impala and 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee) of getting it within the one inch movement criteria. It took us a long time and we even took it to a car seat check and they took two hours to get it right. We aren't going to remove these seats until they go forward facing!

I love this carseat

By mommytoaprincess

from California, United States

Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Vibe:

This carseat is perfect for me, my child, and my car! However I do see how it may not be perfect for everyone the seat does sit very high however I don't mind it and it's a perfect fit in my car. (I drive a 2012 dodge charger) For rear facing I highly recommend using the latch system to get a tight fit it will be hard to install with the seat belt rear facing because there is no lock off built into the seat. This is a very well made seat and it's perfect for me however I do see how people may have issues in smaller cars or trying to get a good install in the center without latch. I love the great side impact protection as it was tested to european safety standards and I really feel my daughter is very safe in this seat. The harness is also super easy to adjust. bottom line: I love love love this car seat but you just have to have the right car to actually get it installed correctly! My mom has a lower end basic car seat and I honestly see a huge difference and always look forward to putting my daughter back into her recaro (it's just so much better and easier to adjust the harness and what not)

Top quality, great purchase!

By 1stTimeMommy

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Vibe:

After extensive research on which careseat would work best for us, we decided on the Recaro proRIDE. Having only heard and read great things about this car seat was a huge factor in our purchase. We have a fairly small crossover... a 2014 Jeep Compass and we were unsure how it would fit rear facing in our vehicle. Having enough leg room for the front passenger was a pretty big deal for my 5'8" husband. It took the two of us to install, and we ran into a problem with the latch belts not being long enough to use rear facing with our vehicle. So far that has been the only issue, but once our daughter is front facing it shouldn't be an issue. Despite our car being being on the smaller side as far as back seats go, the fit is great! There's enough room for my husband and I to sit in the front passenger seat without our knees hitting the glovebox (there is about a 2" gap between my husbands knees and the glovebox). There definitely wouldn't be enough room to fit 3 passengers including the car seat in the back, but that isn't an issue for us The quality of the car seat is better than many I have seen in my research. I love that you can take the covers off and wash them, which isn't a common feature from what I've seen. I feel safe knowing that my daughter is all snug inside her car seat now. Her head doesn't flop all over like it did in her infant seat, yet she still can look out the window and enjoy the view. The fact that you just turn a knob to adjust the shoulder straps is a very convenient feature as well! Overall I think that the Recaro proRIDE was a great purchase! And I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a car seat. It seems like a very sound investment!

Almosts perfect

By Leslie29

from Atlanta, GA, United States

Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Vibe:

I've had two of these seats for about 2 years now and they are almost perfect. Here are some pro's and con's: Pro's: -Straps are adjustable without having to take the whole seat out of the car. Great for carpooling or just as your kid gets bigger. - the shoulder pads are attached at the top which keeps the straps from getting twisted. (We also have Britax seats and the straps are always twisted and tangled) - built in head cushions make for a comfy ride and I feel like it is safer for their little heads. - I find this seat much easier to get in and out of the car than our Britax seat. - Price. the price was great in comparison to some of the other car seats out there. From what I read at the time (2 yrs ago) the safety of this seat was on par with the highest level Britax seat, but was about $100 - $150 less (can't remember exact figures) Con's: - very hard to clean. Right after we got our seat we went on a road trip and my daughter got sick and threw up. It was very difficult to get the cover off to clean it, and not all of the cover comes off (I don't think the cover on the head cushions comes off). Once the seat had been cleaned it took my husband and my dad over an hour to get the cover back on. - sits up very high. this can be a pro or a con. My daughter has a great view of what's outside her window, which she loves, but when we put it in my parent's sedan with a low door opening, it is very hard to get her in and out - particularly when she was rear facing. It was fine in my Hyundia Sante Fe and now my Honda Odyssey. - cup holder. this might seem silly to mention, but the cup holder on this thing is terrible. It's seems like a complete afterthought. It can go on either side, which is nice, but it pokes out the front of the seat making it hard for little arms to reach and completely unusable in when the seat is facing backwards. then, it is so small that most standard size sippy cups barely fit in it. If you have wider-base cups, like Nuk, they don't fit at all. I haven't been able to find an after market cup holder that will work with it. The Britax seats that we have are mid-level Britax seats bought about 4 years ago (Roundabout, I think). So, that's what I have as a comparison point. I definitely like the Recaro better.
