Sneak Peek: Chicco NextFit Zip *MAX* Extended-Use Convertible!


2019 Chicco NextFit Zip Max Preview

We’ve been sitting on a little secret and we’re excited to finally share the news! Chicco is launching their NextFit Zip Max Extended-Use Convertible in January 2019! This new model takes everything that we love about the original NextFit to the next level. With some structural and non-structural changes, the NextFit Zip Max has a lower rear-facing weight minimum (4 lbs.) and a higher rear-facing weight maximum (50 lbs.). Max also has more leg room (both RF & FF) thanks to an integrated extension panel. Additionally, this new model has an enhanced infant insert, smooth harness adjuster, zip-off cover plus all the original features that we know and love like SuperCinch LATCH connectors, 9-position no-rethread harness, lockoffs for RF & FF, liquid bubble level indicators, and more. Check out the video for all the details!
