The tough-but-lightweight, newly streamlined PIPA Lite LX car seat made with aerospace-grade aluminum and featherweight fabric weighs in at just under six pounds—more than two pounds lighter than the brand's original PIPA car seat—and exceeds American safety standards for infant car seats.
Why parents will love it: An ergonomic carry handle and extra-light design make it easier to tote, and easy-release buttons at the base make car-to-car transfers simple and quick. State-of-the-art Aeroflex™ foam and fused plastic create a resilient, shock-absorbing frame for safety, while microknit fabric offers durability, a soft feel and a luxe look without extra bulk.
Why kids will love it: A comfortable headrest with patented Tailor Tech memory-foam cushioning adds comfort and adjusts for a custom fit as baby grows. A removable and user-friendly dream drape™ UPF 50+ canopy shields little eyes from the sun and rain—simply zip out the extension for extra protection (hidden magnets make for a super-slick fit).
Child weight/height: 4–32 lb.; up to 32".
Car seat weight/dimensions: 5.7 lb.
Safety features: Side-impact protection; airline-certified for use with base; crumple zone within stability leg; made of naturally flame-retardant fabric; not chemically treated for fire resistance.
Harness: Adjustable five-point harness.
Car installation: The PIPA Lite car seat base—required for use of this car seat in any vehicle—makes it easy to take the seat along as you travel with True lock™ installation that takes just five seconds. Click it into the lower LATCH anchors in your car or a taxi and look for the green-means-go indicators, or install with a seat belt. Dual bubble-level indicators confirm the correct angle, and the steel stability leg folds underneath when not in use.
PIPA Lite must be used with included base; car seat is not meant to be used in vehicles without base
