First Peek Review: Britax Pinnacle 90 & Frontier 90 Combination Harness-2-Booster Carseat

Britax has officially announced the next generation Harness-2-Booster seats in the Frontier line.  They will be the Frontier 90 and Pinnacle 90 (with Side Impact Cushion Technology).

The biggest news?  The new ClickTight seatbelt installation system.  It’s an automatic tensioning system, similar in a way to the Cybex Aton base, but it also serves as a belt locking device.  It may also remind some of the Britax King, but it’s much easier to use than the King was.  Basically, you flip up a metal reinforced plate on the front of the shell, then route the seatbelt underneath and buckle it.  To finish, you push firmly down to close the plate and the seatbelt is tensioned and locked in one easy step!  No worries about locking a retractor or using a locking clip.  No worries about LATCH anchor weight limits.  The most difficult part of the installation process might be knowing to flip up the fabric cover to find the ClickTight system!

*UPDATE: See our complete review of the Frontier 90 HERE.  And our full review of the Pinnacle 90 HERE.

You can order at Amazon.com with free shipping and free returns.

The Britax Pinnacle 90 will have an MSRP of $369.99

The Britax Frontier 90 MSRP is $329.99

Big Announcement Monday at Noon!

Make sure you’re here Monday at Noon for the full scoop!  We wish we could spill all the details now but that would probably land Darren in some very hot water.  So… our lips are sealed until the media embargo is lifted at 12 PM on 3/25.  For once, I’m actually looking forward to a Monday morning!
