We can all agree that the Cybex AtonQ is a pretty amazing, fully-loaded car seat. However, it’s a pricey car seat most people can’t afford, with so many other purchases necessary to prepare for baby. Cybex has refreshed their popular Aton2 infant car seat into the Cybex Aton4 – but right now it’s only in Europe! Take all the features that people love on the AtonQ and combine it with the well-priced Aton2 and you get the Aton4, no need to compromise any longer.
What new features will be on the Aton4?
Integrated height adjustment of the seat for a lie-flat position
The neck muscles and reflexes of premature and very small babies are still underdeveloped and there is a high risk of the head falling forward, which can lead to serious breathing problems and even suffocation.
Cybex worked with doctors and midwives to determine the ideal sitting angle for infants, while a new function was developed that ensures the flattest possible lying position. The risk of suffocation is thereby significantly reduced. The adjustment mechanism also offers bigger children more space and comfort.
8-position height-adjustable headrest with integrated harness guides
An 8-position headrest with integrated harness guides is another aspect of the infant carrier’s optimal side-impact protection.
The height of the harness adjusts automatically depending on the height of the headrest making the fiddly threading and unthreading of the straps a thing of the past. The soft seat inlay attached to the headrest can also be used to regulate the height of the baby’s pelvis.
Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System)
The very first impact of an accident is distributed by the Linear Side-impact Protection System (L.S.P. System) and its extendable protector and absorbed by the flexible material structure of the seat. The flexible material and structure of the infant car seat then absorbs the forces of an impact and channels them away from the baby.
Integrated XXL fold-away sun canopy with UVP50+ sun protection
This is a huge upgrade, one that we’re excited about. They’ve improved the canopy into an integrated XXL fold-away sun canopy with UV V50+ sun protection
The only difference between the Aton4 vs AtonQ is that the AtonQ has telescopic Linear Side-impact Protection that can be easily and individually adjusted. In addition, by adjusting the headrest on the AtonQ the sitting angle changes automatically.
With the help of simple adapters, all Cybex infant seats , together with the Cybex strollers turn into a clever, visually harmonious travel system. Of course, the infant seats can also be combined with many other-brand strollers to form a practical travel system.
