Product Description

The BRITAX MARATHON™ ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES convertible car seat is designed for children rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 20 up to 65 pounds. The MARATHON ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES 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 MARATHON ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES also incorporates BRITAX Side Impact Protection, offers a no-rethread and quick-adjust five-point harness, multiple buckle and recline adjustments, and an easy-remove cover that also allows access to belt paths from the front of the seat. The MARATHON ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES includes memory foam in the seating area and head restraint to provide superior comfort for the child. An infant positioning pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning. A Cup Holder is also included for on-the-go travel convenience.
This and all items from Britax are excluded from all promotions and discounts except where otherwise noted on product detail pages.

Features

  • Memory foam in seating area and head restraint for superior comfort
  • Side Impact Protection comprised of deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body
  • Base with SafeCell Technology® features SafeCells 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
  • HUGS™ with SafeCell Technology® manages crash energy and forward head movement while keeping the chest clip properly positioned.

My daughter was in a rollover car accident when she was two years old and was strapped into this car seat. The car landed upside down and she stayed safely strapped into the seat. She survived with minor cuts from flying debris and a bruise from the strap on one side. We went out and bought the same seat to use to take her home from the hospital when she was released just hours after the accident.

When we installed rear-facing for our 11-mo old, it felt like she was slanted too far down and was leaning into the back seat. The "recline" bar was difficult to reach, because it was jammed against the back seat, and when we could reach it --- it was difficult to pull and recline. We returned the next day, and got a Chicco seat ... but all of the seats at Toys R Us were MUCH easier and smoother to recline, except this Britax .. so on that alone, I would suggest another seat.

    Great convertable seat! After much research, I decided on the Britax Marathon and am very happy I did! It has fantastic safety features, was easy to install and my little boy (9 months)seems very comfortable in it. It is worth the price.
    I have a ford focus wagon and it fits well, not too bulky.

        The car seat we purchased came in excellent condition and was easy to install. It seems sturdy and our daughter seems comfortable in the car seat. It is a very large seat so I don't love how much room it takes in the back seat and it was also pretty expensive.

              We did a lot of research for a convertible car seat and chose the Britax Marathon series, based on other consumers. What a great car seat and easy to install! My little girl is comfortable and definitely safe! Will buy another one when the second baby gets older.

              Only suggestion would be to create a way to loosen the harrness everytime with out having to use the button at the bottom between their legs. Also the belts at the theigh seem to pinch sometimes.... Add a citation there.
