Product Description

The BRITAX MARATHON™ 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 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 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. A head and body pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning.

The Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat Features:

  • Base with SafeCell Technology®
  • Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether®
  • Side Impact Protection
  • Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™


Britax has been a pioneer in child passenger safety for more than 35 years, with a legacy of leadership in developing innovations that enhance the safety of child car seats and improve their ease of installation and use.

This and all items from Britax are excluded from all promotions and discounts except where otherwise noted on product detail pages.

Features

  • 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
  • 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 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
  • Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™ provides resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash

    I was recently in a front-end car accident in which the car (2006 Honda Civic) was totaled. My son (4 years old, 44 lbs.) was front-facing in the Marathon CS and sustained no injuries at all. He was up running around after the accident and complained of no pain in the days following. He only had minor seatbelt burn near his neck. It has been a week, and I am still in bed suffering from severe muscle spams and pain/whiplash. I am very pleased with this car seat and how it protected my son in the wreck. It is also very easy to install, easy to remove the covers to wash, fairly light weight. I highly recommend this seat. My son has used it since he outgrew the infant seat around age 1.

    I had this car seat in my registry because I heard it was the best brand and of course I wanted the best for my newborn baby. I also liked it because it converted from a rear facing baby seat to a forward facing toddler seat. The cute cow print cover also attracted me to it. Installation was a bit of a pain as the latch system straps are very hard to adjust. I dread taking the car seat out and putting it back in because the straps are such a pain to move and a just. The cover is a whole different story. It's supposed to be attached to the car seat only by little tiny plastic tabs that break off with any kind of pressure. So of course those broke off with in a month and now the car seat cover never stays on. It's always bunched up under my daughter on one side or the other and we constantly have to pull it down over back over the plastic but it never stays. She's always sitting on bunched up car seat cover and is uncomfortable. It says the shoulder straps are adjustable but they only go so high: not nearly high enough to come from above my two-year-old shoulders in a safe position. This car seat is an expensive disappointing piece of junk.

    Exceptional car seat! would buy again

    By ribsfate

    from Pa

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Pink Giraffe:

    We've been using this seat for our 14 month old for about a month now and I have to say we really like it(mom, dad and baby!) Structure seems very sturdy, material is very nice and plush. Size is good both forward and rear facing. We have it installed in an Element and have also tried it in an 06 outback sport, still fits well enough in rear facing position. The only thing which I found to be awkward is the versa tether install for rear facing with a top anchor point-the tether wraps around both sides of the carseat's headrest from the back to the front which leaves the straps extending into the path of where we would load/unload our child. This could just be a mismatch between our Element and the carseat but we elected to use the lower anchor with very satisfactory results. This is not a complaint as I'm sure the baby would be held very tightly using said attachment method, just didn't work for us. Bottom line, very well made seat, worth the price. Would buy another! Thanks

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Pink Giraffe:

    my child seems very comfortable in it (from day 1!). it was a bit difficult to install it in our Impala (probably problem of the car not that car seat) but the car seat feels and seems very safe.

    Best Marathon yet!

    By NikkiinTX

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Pink Giraffe:

    This is the 2nd one I've owned, and it is so much better than the original! They finally figured it out with the sliding strap adjuster. No more lacing and unlacing straps through tiny holes. And the recline handle is easy too. Have never been more happy with a car seat.

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Pink Giraffe:

    I've been using this seat for almost a year and think it's a great seat. I did a lot of research trying to find just the right seat and I'm happy I chose the Marathon. It's easy to install, easy to adjust the straps and I still have my 2.5 year old son in it rear facing. I've contacted Britax twice for replacement parts and they were fantastic.

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Pink Giraffe:

    The car seat is a 2007 model, and it is still in great shape. I do, however, have to order a new cover, padding, and harness for this next baby.

    This is a very sturdy car seat that feels safe. I'm very happy I spent the extra money to get a Britax. I plan on using this rear facing for my son until he is at least 2.

    Worth the $$

    By Amy M

    from NC, United States

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Pink Giraffe:

    Never had a Britax before, but this is worth the money! The straps loosen and tighten with ease. Love the velcro to hold the straps to the sides. Fabric feels like it wouldn't be scratchy or get too hot.
