MEETS NEW EU STANDARDS
Our original SlimFit R44 convertible car seat has been adapted to meet the EU’s new R129 standards. Most importantly, SlimFit R129 has undergone more extensive side impact testing and ensures your little one stays rearward facing for longer, which is the safest way for them to travel.
INTERCHANGEABLE TRUESHIELD™ SIDE IMPACT PROTECTION POD
The side impact protection pod attaches to either side of the car seat. In the event of a collision, it works to reduce the impact and better protects your child’s head, neck and spine.
Grows and goes
SlimFit R129 adapts as your child grows both up and out. When the headrest is raised, the side wings of the car seat simultaneously expand, keeping your little one comfortable and safe for as long as they ride in this convertible car seat.
2-IN-1 CONVERTIBLE SEAT
The perfect combination
SlimFit R129 easily transitions from a rearward-facing harnessed seat (40-105cm) to a forward-facing highback booster (100-145cm) to adapt as your child grows from baby to big kid.
Is SlimFit R129 Right for Me?
SlimFit R129 keeps your family going by adapting to every stage of your little one’s life. SlimFit R129 is a 2-in-1 convertible car seat that can be used from birth all the way up to 145cm or approximately 12 years of age. This upgraded version of our original SlimFit R44 convertible car seat meets the EU’s R129 standards which means it has undergone more side impact testing, is categorized by height instead of weight, and keeps your child rearward facing longer. Use rearward facing from birth up to 105cm (approx. 4 years) and then use forward facing as a highback booster from 100 to 145cm (approx. 3.5 to 12 years).
Keeping your little one safe has never been easier. With the TrueShield™ Side Impact Protection pod and Safety Surround™ Side Impact Protection, this seat works hard to protect your precious cargo in the event of a collision. The easy-to-adjust 5-point harness keeps your rearward child secured in this convertible car seat. Installation is easier with the integrated belt lock-off that confirms the car seat is snug and secure in your vehicle.
SlimFit R129 is designed to adapt as your baby becomes a toddler and then a big kid. The no-rethread harness and 10-position headrest easily adjust together. As an added bonus, the side wings of the car seat simultaneously expand as the headrest is raised. When your little one no longer needs the harness, it stores away neatly thanks to the integrated harness storage.
SlimFit R129’s 6-position recline is ideal for both rearward and forward facing kids. Smoothly adjust the recline with one hand and use the optional newborn inserts for extra protection and comfort. To ensure the longevity of your convertible car seat, the covers and pads are machine washable to make sure every ride, from hospital to big kid, is as clean as the first.

What is the difference between SlimFit R44 and SlimFit R129?
There are currently 2 different car seat standards in the EU. R44 (legally known as ECE R44/04) car seats are divided into groups based on weight, with some covering multiple groups. Eventually, R44 car seats will no longer be available for purchase, but these seats are still safe to use. SlimFit R44 is based on these standards.
SlimFit R129 meets the new R129 (legally known as ECE R129) standards. The main differences in these standards are that car seats are based on your child’s height, undergo more side impact testing, and ensure children sit rearward facing until they reach 15 months and 75cm. SlimFit R129 is based on these standards. You can learn more about car seat standards and help figure out which car seat is right for you in our car seat buying guide.
Why doesn’t SlimFit R129 have a forward facing harness booster?
EU R129 suggests keeping your little one rearward facing as long as possible. After your child reaches 100cm, you can be certain they can then ride forward facing in SlimFit R129 as a highback booster.
How long should I keep my child rearward facing in the SlimFit R129 car seat?
Under R129 standards, it is required to keep your little one rear-facing until 15 months and 75cm. We recommend keeping your child rearward facing as long as possible because this seat position will better protect your child's head, neck and spine in case of impact. For this reason, we advise rearward facing up to 105cm or approximately 4 years of age.
How many recline positions does the SlimFit R129 car seat have?
The SlimFit R129 car seat has 6 total recline positions — 2 in rearward facing and 4 in forward facing. This means your child's head and neck will always be properly supported.
Can I machine wash SlimFit R129’s seat covers?
Yes, you can wash the covers in your washing machine with cold water only on the delicate cycle. Drip dry and do not use bleach.
What is the maximum height and age for SlimFit R129?
This incredible 2-in-1 convertible car seat can be used until your little one is your big one, up to 145cm or approximately 12 years of age.
Do I need to use the TrueShield™ Side Impact Protection pod?
While the use of the TrueShield Side Impact Protection pod is optional, we provide it to give your child the best in side impact protection. Use the pod on the side of the car seat closest to the vehicle door to help absorb force in the event of a crash.
SlimFit™ R129 2-in-1 convertible car seat is suitable from 40-145cm (birth to approx. 12 years)
