To satisfy our readers, I’m taking a short break from the expo to get you the Clek Foonf convertible seat information ASAP! Unfortunately, no photos were allowed with the prototypes. As they are not production samples, all these specifications are subject to change before launch next year. *UPDATE -stock pics of prototype foonf have been released and are posted below.
Clek’s goal is to make the safest convertible seat on the market. They have a patented energy absorbing crumple system in the base to significantly reduce chest forces on the occupant. The very impressive base is re-inforced with Magnesium, like the Oobr, and also offers rigid LATCH for forward facing use. The frame is steel re-inforced throughout.
The Foonf will appear at Clek flagship retailers as early as June, 2012, possibly appearing in Canada slightly before or at the same time as USA retailers, depending on how the initial shipment is processed. Other retail outlets will be later in the summer. The price point for both countries is estimated to be around $449 for standard fabrics, $499 for premium fabrics. You do get a lot for the price!
