Boulevard G4.1 and Boulevard ClickTight:
Pictured below are the 2015 Britax Boulevard G4.1 (red) and the new Britax Boulevard ClickTight (green).
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)
