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. Their uncompromising focus has made Britax the best-selling child seat in Europe and one of the brands most trusted by American parents and caregivers since entering the U.S. market in 1996.
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 really wanted to love this car seat because the kiwi color is fantastic and I had read such good things about the Marathon, but I ultimately exchanged it for a Chicco Nextfit (the same price) because:
    1. The high sides combined with a higher base made the space for settling my little guy rear-facing in my Honda Fit was really tiny - I was worried I'd smack his head off the door frame daily (the Nextfit sits lower, leaving more space in the door).
    2. I would have needed a pool noodle or towel to get the Marathon leveled correctly rear-facing, which isn't convenient for switching vehicles (the Nextfit has 9 recline settings vs the Marathon's 3, plus it has a leveling bubble to let you know it's at the correct angle, vs the Marathon's line sticker).
    3. My tall baby would only be able to stay rear-facing until his head reached 1" below the top of the Marathon's shell (He could potentially last until 49" tall rear-facing in the Nextfit).

    In the end, the only thing I liked better about the Marathon was it's color. It's a nice car seat, but I preferred the Nextfit's options.

    Awesome seat!!!

    By dts776

    from Boston, MA, United States

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

    We bought this seat for our 5 month old son who hated his infant carrier seat. We loved it!!! My son was rearfacing in this seat until 3 years 7 months (39lbs). He was always comfortable- never complained once! We turned the seat forward and used it for another 8 months. We upgraded to a Britax Frontier 90 clicktight last week. I know Britax now offers this Marathon seat with the clicktight technology and I would buy it in an instant if I had another baby! The only negative thing I can say is that the cover is not machine washable. Every time I needed to wash the cover, I had to do it in my bathtub and then it took forever to drip dry (especially inside during winter). Definitely not convenient! Actual messy children are using these seats and busy moms need to be able to throw the cover in the wash! Britax has still not fixed this as my new Frontier cover is not machine washable either. However, it is a small price to pay for the safety and comfort of the seat.

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

    I bought this carseat for my first daughter, and have had zero issues. It gives me peace of mind to have her in this seat, and it's easy to install and get her in and out. Fast forward three years, and I just purchased another one for my second daughter!

    So great I bought two!

    By Fierydream

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

    Let me start by saying that I had previously bought the Britax Chaperone for my baby to use in my husbands truck, and at 12 1/2 months she was nearing the top of the seat, butcould probably still stay in it a few more months. I decided to go ahead and move up to a bigger seat and purchased the Marathon because I loved the safety that Britax offered. The seat fits nicely in his truck and I really love the new latch design. It's so easy to tighten! I just wish the seat had a cup holder, but other wise it is wonderful. I bought a second one my my Terrain and it actually fits rear facing at full recline behind the drivers seat with the seat all the way back!! So much better than the Safety *st Elite that I had.

    Great car seat!!

    By laurencs

    Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

    In the rear facing mode it is very secure and fits very well in our Town and Country. I absolutely love the fact that I don't have to re-thread the seat each time my daughter grows taller. It is a bit bulky so if you have a smaller car this is not to option for you.
