Diono Rainier, Diono Pacifica and Diono Olympia!
Diono is debuting their new convertible series, based on the popular Diono Radian models. The new lineup will be added to the current Radian series. They feature somewhat deeper side wings than the Radian models. In the head area, a new compression wall design features “Rigid double wall structure for side impact protection.” The outside wall compresses under load to absorb additional energy in an impact, increasing side impact performance without increasing width. The new fabrics are soft, wick moisture for comfort and are wipeable. They will also include a “Safety Synergy” label and should arrive second quarter, 2014, at Amazon and other retailers. They will arrive in Canada around the same time as in the USA!
The Olympia is the first model, featuring the new covers, new fashions and improved side impact protection. It has a 45 pound rear-facing limit, 70 pounds forward-facing and 110 pounds in booster mode. $279.99 MSRP.
The Pacifica adds a deluxe infant body support cushion and increases the limits to 50 pounds rear-facing, 90 pounds forward facing and 120 pounds in booster mode. $319.99 MSRP.
The Rainier is the top model in the lineup (pictured above) and adds thicker, more protective looking adjustable headwings to the Pacifica. $359.99 MSRP.
All three models maintain an 80 pound Super LATCH rating, subject to 2014 federal standard changes.
