From the Manufacturer
The Only car Seat You'll Ever Need
Safety Features Protect Your Child from Injury
The RadianRXT's design begins with a full steel frame for a foundation that stands strong while other features disseminate crash forces away from your child. Aluminum reinforced side walls and head support lined with thick, energy absorbing EPS foam provide excellent side impact protection. The SafeStop energy absorbing harness provides extra protection for children up to 18.5 kilograms (40 pounds) in the forward-facing position. When installed, SafeStop provides bungee-like energy absorption which reduces impact on the child. Additionally, the RadianRXT boasts rear-facing tether capability to reduce seat rotation during an impact. This car seat surpasses Federal crash test standards and meets NCAP standards, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions. The RXT is tested at its maximum forward-facing, rear-facing, and booster weight capacities, and is rated for 10 years of life.
Adaptable Design Accommodates Growing Children, and Growing Families
The RadianRXT can be adapted to your child as they grow, keeping their car rides safe and comfortable for years. It fits children in the rear-facing position weighing from 2.3-20.5 kilograms (5-45 pounds), and children in the forward-facing position weighing from 10-29.5 kilograms (22-65 pounds). The RadianRXT also converts to a booster seat for kids up to 54 kilograms (120 pounds). An adjustable, reinforced head support offers 12 height settings to ensure the right fit for your child and provides additional side impact safety. Thanks to its exceptionally slim profile, the RadianRXT can sit three across in most vehicles. Because it does not have a pedestal the seat sits relatively low, making child boarding easy. It also features a folding design, so storing or transporting the seat is easy. The car seat is FAA approved for use on airplanes. The machine washable cover and cup holder compatibility (up to four, one included) make this car seat even more convenient.
Comfortable Ride for Little Ones
All Radian seats have a deep shell that provides a more comfortable rear-facing ride, as well as a higher rear-facing capacity. This car seat features a plush cloth surface that feels soft against your little one's skin. Expandable sides and a longer seat bottom offer better leg support, and help keep children cozy as well as helping maintain a custom fit throughout their physical development. Two forward-facing recline positions allow the RadianRXT to fit a wide variety of vehicle seats. Body support cushions ensure infants and babies are safe, snug and positioned correctly.

- excellent safety ratings

- last up to 120 lbs... not that I think my kids will need them when in high school '
- never need to buy another booster
- fit three across
- low profile so my 3 yo can get into it without help
- heavy beast... but it is a steel frame
- have to re-thread the straps when child grows in height, so has to be uninstalled for that.
BRITAX MARATHON & BOULEVARD
- Excellent safety ratings
- easy install
- easy recline
- like the velcro tabs to attach straps when not in use.
- adjustable headrest to which the harness straps are attached, which means no re-threading of the harness straps. Can adjust without uninstalling car seat...RXT would be awesome if it had this feature.
- only last until 65 lbs.
- will need to buy a booster seat
- even pricier than the Radian RXT!
- dislike the pedestal. ... makes seat too high... no problem for our VW wagon, which is low to the ground, but a pain in the neck in our Acadia truck...Read more ›
Cons- it is on the heavy side so not ideal for a car seat that you'll be taking out often. This doesn't apply for me which is why I bought them.
To change the harness height you have to uninstall.
Those are the only 2 cons in my opinion. Absolutely love them and while be purchasing a 3rd when my little one outgrows the bucket seat.
- High weight and height limit Rear facing and forward facing;
- The low sides of the seat makes it really easy to lift a kid in and out;
- Provides lot of leg room for RF toddlers;
- The top tether can be used rear facing to control rebound;
- Well paded;
- 8 years lifespan (8 years after DOM);
- Diono has a great Customer service (french and English);
- When installed Rear facing, you can get an "Angle adjuster" for 13$. It's a Diono accessory that you put under the car seat to make it sits more upright. It suitable to use with infants that can sit unassisted and have good head control. It can't be use with a newborn. A newborn needs a 45 degreee angle. http://www.amazon.ca/Diono-Radian-Angle-Adjuster-1-Pack/dp/B006I1QTYQ/ref=pd_rhf_cr_s_cp_1_VN3G?ie=UTF8&refRID=0S2P394H429SKAZTVKMJ
- This seat is HEAVY! It might not be a best bet if you plan on moving it frequently;
- The headwings tend to slip of position and are hard to adjust;
- The new harness pads are too big for small babies *** Call Diono and they might send you the smaller ones for free!***
- The harness can be hard to adjust (Ratchet type adjuster: pull, pull, pull...)
- The booster function is useless. The child must be 50lbs to use it and the belt guide is not adjustable. When the harness is outgrow, the booster is too.
-The radian can be really hard to install in some cars. It takes a few tricks to get a tight install. Remember that you only check for less than 1 inch of movement at the belt path.
I will edit my review when I will wash the cover!
