RECARO ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat


Designed for use in either the rear-facing or forward-facing positions, the RECARO ProRIDE Convertible Car Seat offers multiple safety features such as side-impact protection, a head restraint, and a vehicle belt lock-off mechanism (forward-facing). Plus, an ergonomic shell structure, breathable mesh fabric, and easy-to-use harness and head restraint adjusters provide comfort and convenience.

Racing-Inspired Side Impact Protection

Tested to international standards, the RECARO ProRIDE offers an intelligent design that protects a child during a side-impact incident. The car seat’s enhanced head wings shield the head and face while a head rest limits neck movement. For added safety, reinforcements at the sides, hips, and thighs help stabilize the torso and pelvis areas.

EasyAdjust, No Re-Thread Safety Harness System

The EasyAdjust, five-point harness can be customized to properly accommodate your growing child. It adjusts with a simple turn of a knob without the hassle of rethreading any straps. TrueLock belt lock-off prevents any slippage from your vehicle’s seat belt when used forward-facing. With an upper weight limit in the forward-facing position of up to 65 pounds, this car seat has one of the highest weight capacities for any convertible car seat with a five-point harness system.

Safety Stripe System

The RECARO Safety Stripe System is a racing-inspired white stripe that is clearly visible on the outside edge of the five-point harness. This stripe is designed as an easy alert to parents that a twist could occur, or has begun, thus preventing a safety hazard.

Built-In LATCH System for Added Stability

Designed with a push-button LATCH system, the car seat is easy to secure to your vehicle. The car seat offers a universal top tether system as an added anchor. The rear-facing recline lever allows you to adjust the seat to best fit your vehicle’s backseat.

Comfortable, Ergonomic Seat Molds to Your Child’s Shape

Featuring an ergonomic shell structure that offers support for your child, the car seat is pleasant and cozy for short errands or long road trips. The harness system features soft pads to make it more comfortable. The head restraint is designed with protective and comfortable automotive PUR foam. For comfort and safety, the soft, cushiony car seat is made with expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) that absorbs external forces.

  1. Love love love this carseat. I’ve used it both rear and ff. It has so much cushion and is so cumphy. Other carseats are all hard plastic or easily foam. But theese have cushion (nice thick memory foam) both on lumbar support and bottom support. Now I don’t hear my 4yo (she’s not in this recaro she’s in the ff recaro sport, same features tho) complain about her but hurting on long rides. The side impact protection is actually comfortable. My 1yo uses it to lay her head down on it and sleeps while we drive. The covers are all completely and easily removable. I just throw them in the washer and wash with regular clothes and lay flat to dry. It takes only a few minutes to take off and put them back on.. they come with a guard for the snaps or buckles. The guard guarantees you won’t pinch your kids. And it’s soft against their skin. Only down side is that they kind of fall off easily and can get lost. Super easy to install also. No matter how yiur I stallion g this carseat it super easy. Now they are quite large. I have a large 4 dr sadan. I cannot have two next round eachother because the “hump” makes the center seat sit sideways. Wether rear facing or ff. If you don’t have a center “hump” you could fit three recaro carseats in the back seat with no problems. Also if I had three carseats I the back the hump wouldn’t be a problem because the two carseats on each side would prevent the middle carseat from leaning. Which really isn’t a huge deal. And if the carseat is rf, it does not really lean so much because the backs of the front seats kind of hold it in place (ya the back of the recaro goes between the two front seat backs it’s that big). I dont hate one single thing about this carseat. It’s cute even!
