Greetings from the ABC Kids Expo! We knew our readers would be interested in comparison photos of the 2015 Britax G4.1 convertibles and the new ClickTight convertibles.
G4.1 Convertible Updates:
Lower LATCH anchor limits will change
- Roundabout G4.1, Marathon G4.1 and Blvd G4.1 – Rear-facing up to 40 lbs. (unchanged from current G4 models); Forward-facing up to 50 lbs. with LATCH (after that you must use seatbelt to install seat)
- Advocate G4.1 - Rear-facing up to 40 lbs (unchanged from current G4 models); Forward-facing up to 45 lbs. with LATCH (after that you must use seatbelt to install seat)
SafeCell branding: Roundabout & Marathon will be “Complete”; Boulevard “Complete Plus”; Advocate “Complete Max”
Shorter tether strap length (extenders will be available for rare cases where strap isn’t long enough to reach tether anchor)
Boulevard G4.1 and Boulevard ClickTight:
Pictured below are the 2015 Britax Boulevard G4.1 (red) and the new Britax Boulevard ClickTight (green).
As you can see the shape of the shell is different but overall the new ClickTight Boulevard isn’t wider than the current Boulevard G4 model.
Quick Comparison of G4, G4.1 and ClickTight Specs:
All Britax convertibles (G4, G4.1 and CT models) are rated from 5-40 lbs. rear-facing
G4 and G4.1 models are outgrown rear-facing by height once the child’s head is 1″ from the top of the shell (not the headwings)
All ClightTight models are outgrown rear-facing by height once the child’s head is 1″ from the top of the headwings (Note: Boulevard CT and Advocate CT models are taller than the Marathon CT model)
All Britax convertibles (with the exception of Roundabout) are rated from 20-65 forward-facing and up to 49″ tall.
ClightTight models have taller top harness slots than G4 and G4.1 models.
Finally, an update to our earlier previews with a forward-facing ClickTight installation. (Rear-facing install shown in our previews linked below)
