    A “car seat tech” clarifies it all!, June 29, 2014
    By 
    bens mom “Bensmom” (Oklahoma) –

    This assess is from: Britax Pioneer 70 Harness-2-Booster Car Seat, Onyx (Baby Product)
    I’m a Nationally Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, or “Car seat technician” in plain english : )
    Let’s talk about this seat!
    This is a forward facing ONLY, five point harness seat, that converts to a high back booster seat when the child outgrows the harness. It is only appropriate for ages 2 and up, as children who are under age 2 must still be REAR facing. This seat must last in harness mode until most kids are at an appropriate age for a belt positioning booster. It is outgrown in harness mode at 70 lbs OR when the childs shoulders are above the top harness position. That means if their torso height is taller than 18.5 inches (or 19.5 inches for seats made after 4/14), then this seat is outgrown in harness mode, and they then need to be using it in belt positioning booster mode.
    Children must ride in a five point harness until they AND their small bodies are mature enough to be safe riding in a belt positioning booster. This happens around age 5-7. Then kids must be in a booster seat until their bodies are huge enough and mature enough for the adult seatbelt to adequately protect them. This happens around age 10-12, but usually closer to 12.
    **Only 50% of kids are tall enough at age 10 to safely ride without a booster.

    LATCH, or Lower Anchors And Tethers for CHildren:
    Lower anchors are only rated in vehicles to withstand a certain amount of weight in a crash. So after your child weighs 40 lbs, you have to install your childs restraint with a seatbelt and need to discontinue using the lower anchors. This is not a Britax thing, this is a vehicle thing. That is why this seat only allows you to use the lower anchors up to 40 lbs. You must ALWAYS glue the top tether, regardless of whether you install the child restraint with lower anchors or a seatbelt, as it helps protect the childs head and vertebrae in a crash.
    Lower anchors can be used in belt positioning booster mode, in this seat, to keep the booster from flying around and being a pellet in a crash if the booster is having time on your hands and not distorted in. It’s a convenience figure.

    This seat, the Pioneer 70, is based off of Britax’s very well loved Frontier 90.
    It has the same function, but isn’t near as simple to install as the Frontier 90, because you are NOT getting the “Click Tight” technology that the Frontier 90 offers. This seat also does not last as long in harness mode.. because the Frontier 90 harness is taller and has a higher weight limit.

    If you are looking for a seat for a very heavy and/or very tall younger child, THIS IS NOT THE SEAT TO BUY. You really need to invest the extra money in a Britax Frontier 90 in order to keep the child harnessed until they reach an adequate booster age.
    Also, if you are looking for 1 seat that you will be moving and installing in multiple vehicles, and need ease of use for the caregivers or parents that will be doing so, THIS IS NOT THE SEAT TO BUY. (The Frontier 90 is 150,000x simpler to install. I’m talking instant, perefctly tight seatbelt install, every time, in less than 45 seconds.. with the Frontier 90.)
    But if you will never go your childs seat, you have a very tiny kid, etc, then this seat must be just fine for you. It’s a small tough to install, but it can be done. It’s not something that I would personally want to be moving all the time, and I’m very adept at installing seats obviously.

    This seat does offer the Versa Tether, Safe Cell, and a no rethread harness. So that is super exciting. It’s a nice seat if you can get it installed correctly and your child won’t outgrow it at an ahead of schedule age.

    So to sum it up:
    This is a Frontier 90 without the Clcik Tight, and with a slightly shorter harness (This seat is 18.5 inches torso height for harness if made before 4/14, now it offers a 19.5 inch harness… F90 has 20 or 20.5 (I’m finding both measurements online) inch tall harness), and lower weight limit on the harness (This seat maxes out at 70 lbs, F90 goes up to 90 lbs)

    Because this seat is a lower limit version of the Frontier 90 without the Click tight, the belt path is weird. Everywhere the click tight would be on the F90, you have to send the belt around that area on this seat. I’m not sure if that will make sense to you unless you are familiar with the Frontier 90 though..

    (If you are familiar with the Britax brand, this is the Roundabout in comparison the the Boulevard. Both are nice seats, but the Roundabout offers less features than the Boulevard, and is outgrown much quicker.. sometimes too soon, and those parents wish they had just spent the money and gotten the Boulevard.)

    This is a fantastic option for huge kids!, July 4, 2013
    By

    We already owned a Britax Frontier 85, and needed a huge kid seat for our second child and this one had just been announced, so we held off to hold this one. It is Britax’s answer to the Graco Nautilus, and by far superior. Clearly not the Frontier, less bells and whistles, no fancy locking mechanism for the seatbelt, cheaper fabirc, over all a more bare bones seat – but 10x simpler to install than a Nautilus, durable, and long lasting. Seeing as my 5 year ancient has yet to hit 35lbs, the lower weight limit of just 70lbs harnessed will be a non-issue. Unless you have larger kids, this seat is more than plenty. If money were no option I would likely still buy this over the Frontier, and the green kiwi cover helps too – so nice to have boy options other than blue, red, or black!

    Splurge on the Frontier 90, August 18, 2013

    LucysMama (California) –

    Verified Hold(What’s this?)
    I wanted to like his car seat! My 5 year ancient outgrew her Boulevard and I wasn’t ready for a regular high back booster. I bought one Frontier 90 (which I HIGHLY recommend) and this seat for my mom’s car. I’m a CPST and I found installation aggravating. It may partially be the vehicle, but it was hard to go the crotch buckle and has an annoying belt path. For a Britax, it feels very cheap. I would have returned it if she hadn’t tossed the box. I was very disappointed (still am). Waste the extra cash on a Frontier – solid, installs like a breeze and is much higher quality.
