3 CYBEX and gb car seats achieved excellent results in 11/2017 European child car seat testing from Stiftung Warentest and ADAC
We are pleased to announce that the Group’s strategic brands, CYBEX and gb, have been once more awarded with 2 “test winners” and 1 overall rating “good” from independent German consumer testing organisation Stiftung Warentest and German automobile club ADAC.
CYBEX and gb brands achieved excellent results in one of the most important European car seat tests:
In total 16 different seats of all categories and groups from different manufacturers were recently tested and rated according to their safety, handling, ergonomics and harmful substances. 2 of 3 car seats from CYBEX and gb rated “test winner”, one of them achieving the highest overall scores in its respective group in the recent independent German Stiftung Warentest and ADAC testing.
- CYBEX “Aton M i-Size” infant car seat in combination with Base M was awarded “test winner” with the grade “VERY GOOD” (1.3) in the “safety” category and a total result of “GOOD” (1.6)
- CYBEX “Aton M i-Size, belted” received a “GOOD” in the same test 11/2017 and is second in row with an overall rate of “1.8“
- gb Vaya i-Size child car seat was rated “test winner” and achieved “GOOD” with the final grade “2.3”
The CYBEX Aton M i-Size is suitable for newborns and babies at a height of 45 cm to 87 cm (max. 13 kg). It is part of the CYBEX i-Size M-Line modular system and shares the Base M with the award-winning child car seat Sirona M2 i-Size (“good” Stiftung Warentest 11/2016). Thus children are transported safely and rearward-facing from birth up to approx. 4 years of age. Including the best in tests CYBEX Aton 5 (05/2017) and CYBEX Platinum Cloud Q (06/2015) there are now three test winners within the range of infant car seats. This shows how well-positioned CYBEX is in this area.
The gb Vaya i-Size can be used rearward- as well as forward-facing. gb recommends to transport children in the rearward-facing position as long as possible (up to approx. 105 cm). The car seat is suitable for a forward-facing position for children from the age of 16 months and a height of approx. 76 cm to 105 cm.
The gb Idan performed well in the May test 06/2017 in group 0+ with a score of 1.9. This is now turning into a successful series with the gb Vaya i-Size.
