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.

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.

Overrated!

By Miasun

from VA, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

I've had these for over a year. After a couple washes the cover fell apart; the seems came undone and the edges all frayed. My girls are tall for their age and I got these because they said they would accommodate 49 inches. Kate is 42 inches and with the seat back all the way up the straps are just slightly above her shoulders. She will never make it to 49 inches and meet the "at or above the shoulder" requirements. When we installed these rear facing we had to put towels under them to meet the proper alignment, we have a Sienna so I'm not sure if that is a problem with our vehicle. Under the seat cover is a half inch thick layer of foam and that is all there is for comfort; that also breaks apart if you have to wash it. I did a lot of research and this is supposed to be a good product. If this is good I'd hate to see the bad. There is a sturdy looking bar along the sides that look like it would give pretty good protection; this perceived protection is why I'm giving it a 2 and not lower. The rest of the impact protection is just compressed Styrofoam. Those flaps on the head rest that look like they might surround the child's head are just for show and don't actually fold to cushion her head when she falls asleep. Every single time I put the girls in them I have to raise the chest buckle, adjust the shoulder pads, and untwist the straps. The Velcro to hold the straps to the edge is a nice concept but it doesn't line up and is worthless.

Love this!

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

We love this car seat and wish we had two, one for both cars as we have another brand of seat in our other vehicle. The seat is very heavy! We have to take our seats in and out often and it is heavy, however it is easy to install and my son is always comfortable. The cover comes off nice and is easy to wash. Great carseat!

So far so good!

By kmelon

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

We have had ours for about 5 months and seems to be very sturdy. I like the gel-like shoulder pads...so does my daughter as they make for a nice cushy "pillow" for her to rest her head on when she falls asleep in the car. Britax just came out with new options for material that is super cute. We have the older version which is like a white/black blend. Not the cutest ever but i'm not going to complain as we got a great deal on the carseat. Very easy to install! Quality product overall. Only thing is that for some reason I have a tough time unclicking the strap around the legs. But otherwise no complaints so far. :)

Sun damage disappointing

By SueBee

from California, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

I love so many things about this seat: ease of installation, ease of use of buckles, comfort. But I'm disappointed that the covering on the back of the headrest is breaking down: small, black fibers spreading around my car immediately within a couple of days of each vacuuming. I'm assuming this is due to sun damage as I have had it in the forward-facing position for more than 2 years and I have a sedan and not a van or SUV.

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

We bought our first Britax Marathon a year ago. It is sturdy, easy to move, and screams quality. We have been so impressed that when we needed one for my husband's car, this is the only one that would do!

Very safe and comfortable, but weak seat cover

By Erin K

from Undisclosed

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

I really like this seat, but after needing to wash the seat cover (which is almost inevitable with infants/toddlers), it started to immediately fall apart. I very gently washed this cover. Additionally, replacement covers are very expensive. I have been disappointed by that.

Love these seats!

By rachyamy94

from Payson, AZ, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Kiwi:

I just got two of these seats (Domino pattern) in the mail yesterday, and so far I love them!!! I am a nanny, and I wanted a carseat that would rear-face for the stage between infant carrier and forward-facing. This seat does it all! It is easy to install, and I love the incredibly easy LATCH design that Britax possesses!! The seat is so comfortable, with pads that feel like memory foam! Thank you, Britax, for your amazing seats!
