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.

    Simply love all its features!

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

    This is our second Britax Marathon car seat. We had purchased one a little over a year ago for our first grand daughter and now we have a second. We love it so much we purchased a third one for her mom and dads car! The ease of installing it off and on for grandparents use is absolutely wonderful. Couldn't ask for a better safety seat built extremely solid for protection all around her little body that is so user friendly.

    Great seat overall

    By MNmom13

    from Undisclosed

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

    We have been using this seat several weeks now after switching our one year old from an infant seat to a convertible seat. Our child seems to be very comfortable, although I do note she seems to sweat more in this seat. The seat is very sturdy and the cover is nice material. We used seatbelt installation for the middle seat of our crossover (no latch available for middle), and we had some difficulty getting a tight installation. The lock offs were very difficult to close when the seatbelt was tight. I am not a fan of the Velcro strap holders. We purchased 2 seats, and neither of the seats have the Velcro actually aligned properly (so the straps don't stay up anyway). It is more of a hassle with the Velcro attaching to clothing and causing snags. I would prefer they were not there. Overall great seat and love that it is USA made!

    Comfortable for Baby

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

    I bought this for my little girl. Her first forward facing seat. It has lots of cushion to keep her comfortable on our long car rides. It fits nicely into my small SUV. Able to install fairly quickly, after reading manual.

    Ultra Safe

    By mommyof1

    from whittier,ca

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

    This car seat is like a throne for my little princess. Very comfortable and does not leave her hot and sweaty after each trip. Only drawback is its size, like any throne, it takes up A LOT of space. I drive a full size SUV and have her seat in the middle, another car seat would not fit back there. You'd need to put one behind the driver and one behind the passenger's seats. But this car seat is SOLID. Once installed it is not moving any which way. LOVE the feeling of safety with this car seat.

      Great for the Value

      By DSadler

      from Montgomery, AL, United States

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

      We debated about which car seat to get for our 13 month old. We have always used Britax because of the safety rating and features. This seat is so easy to use and install. It doesn't have the extra side impact protection like the more expensive seats, but it does have side impact. It is nicely constructed and easy to keep clean. The no thread harness is a plus because I use to hate taking everything apart. I feel very confident that our child is safe and secure in this seat. I would recommend this car seat to my family and friends!

      Not for RAV4's!

      By Molly

      from Maryland

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

      This seat is very difficult to install and horrible to use with a RAV4. The straps don't ever seem tight enough in the middle. My child is not comfortable in the seat and starts to cry after 20 minutes of driving. I dread having to take it out to use in my husband's vehicle. And, with the RAV4 at least, there is very little room to navigate getting my son in and out of the car. I have to be very careful not to bump his head on the doorway and I have to extend him with my two arms to get him in properly. Our first car seat was a Britax 10 years ago and we LOVED it. I bought this based on the reviews and the brand. We are very disappointed. If you have a RAV4, don't get this car seat.

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

      This car seat was a breeze to install properly. Our daughter is very comfortable and seems very safe while riding in this car seat. The strap adjustment is such a time-saver... so much better than having to re-thread every time she gets bigger. Will definitely purchase another Britax in the future without hesitation.
