Maxi-Cosi’s history and experience
It’s 1984. Babies are being transported in cars in unrestrained carrycots. Toddlers are ferried about in chairs hung over a car’s back seat. Our sister company Maxi-Cosi launches Europe’s first child car seat.
30 years later, Bébé Confort’s mission remains the same: to work with Maxi-Cosi to continuously innovate our car seat technology so that your children travel as safely as possible.
Cars are designed for adults, not children. So we constantly innovate, test and improve our designs in partnership with other organisations concerned about child car safety such as the United Test and Assembly Center Ltd (UTAC), Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the European Commission.
Understanding what modern parents and children need is at the heart of our manifesto. We’re continually listening to and interacting with you, our customers.
We know you want easy-to-use car seats that save you time, keep your child safe and look great. This knowledge, combined with our many years of experience developing Maxi-Cosi technology, means we innovate to solve the problems no-one else does.
We set new standards in car seats
Bébé Confort and Maxi-Cosi have been driving car seat standards since 1984.
Our many patents are proof of our technological innovation since we launched our first baby car seat all those years ago.
What this means is that you can focus your attention on your children while we work hard to keep them safe with the help of our research and development.
You may not even be aware of our safety innovations such as the Pebble belt hooks andSide impact protection system. These hidden technologies work together in every one of our car seats to provide the best protection and comfort for your child.
We were the first to:
• Win a 5-star ranking for a car safety seat with our CabrioFix in international testing results from ADAC, StiWa, OAMTC, TCS, ANWB, Que Choisir and many others.
• Launch built-in sun canopies
• Develop easy-out harness systems
• Create the ISOFIX Click-and-go concept
The ISOFIX Click-and-go concept remains an easy way to transport your children aged 0 to 4 years old in different car seats. See our ISOFIX car seats.
How we innovate. We listen and respond when you tell us your needs. Then we create solutions to make sure car seats aren’t misused, as this is the most common reason travel can become unsafe. For instance, the concepts for our FamilyFix and 2wayFix unit bases are based on input from our feedback panel.
Your children’s comfort is also very important to us. So, the head support adjustment in our Pebble is very simple, allowing the seat to be modified to your baby’s needs. See our rearward-facing car seats. We never stop innovating. Our experts have once again proved themselves by developing the first ever baby car seat to meet strict new EU regulations, the Bébé Confort Pebble Plus, launching across Europe from November 2014 onwards.
How we test our products
When you buy one of our child car seats you’re investing in years of research, development and testing. We have our own laboratories where we check, examine and test new materials.
Our crash test facilities are actually so advanced that they’re often used by EU regulators. Our experts carry out more than 2,000 crash tests every year to test existing products and develop new technology. Our more demanding crash tests are similar to those carried out by the independent and internationally respected car safety expert, Euro NCAP.
That’s why Bébé Confort is renowned for using cutting-edge innovation for safe, reliable car seats.
