The revolutionary CYBEX SIRONA car seat

The ADAC* award winning SIRONA is the revolutionary rear-facing car seat created by CYBEX. Rear facing car seats like the SIRONA  reduce the risk of injury in a head-on collision by over 80% when compared to a conventional forward-facing seat with harness system**. 

In most countries car accidents are the main cause of death among children over the age of one. A quarter of young children in forward-facing car seats suffer serious or fatal injuries in head-on collisions – as the majority of crashes result in a child’s head being flung forward, causing everything from whiplash injuries to a fatal stretching of the spinal cord.

Drawing on extensive experience, CYBEX set out to drastically reduce these risks by combining the world’s leading technology in car safety in one product.  The rear-facing SIRONA distributes the force of an impact evenly over a large area – helping to protect a child’s internal organs as well as their particularly vulnerable neck, shoulders and head.

The results of independent tests on the improved safety provided by rear-facing car seats have been so startling that leading European motoring organisations and organisations such as Which? – who declared the SIRONA the ‘highest scoring combination Group 0+/1 seat tested so far’ - have now called for children to be put into rear-facing seats for as long as possible.

The SIRONA’s ingenious 360° rotation system makes it easy to put a child into the seat and take them out. Unlike other rear-facing car seats that can be rotated, it avoids using a harness when facing forwards – so reducing the risk of injuries that are associated with a child’s shoulders being held back in an accident.

The SIRONA’s pioneering design also means that the seat is suitable for every vehicle type from a compact car to a large estate. Other features include; one-hand reclining; one-click installation with ISOFIX (which cuts the risk of incorrect installation to virtually zero); Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P.); an 11-position height adjustable headrest, and a one-pull easy-fastening harness system. The SIRONA’s seat covers are easy to remove and can be safely washed on a gentle cycle at 30°C. The seat can be used for children up to 18kg (or approximately 4 years).
