New Recaro seats

post #1 of 166
Thread Starter 
Ah, a thread for us to salivate and discuss and dream about the new seats coming out...

Their website has details up now:
http://www.recaro.com/index.php?id=1916&region=3&L=2

The como and the signo

They look like some pretty cool seats.... anyone seen any in person yet? Online stores offering them yet? Post your links!

yes, I am a carseat geek...

I have a friend who is taking pre-orders at her work if anyone wants to order one. I think it's $219 or $249 for the other and free shipping. They do liook nice, but they are wide, 20" from what we saw. The Britax seats are 19", so right between normal and Regent. I'm really digging the pink though...

Yeah the pink is cute. I think I'll get one for the second car and to go to my parents' when we need it. Though if I like it too much I may send the boulevard to second string duty

I want to SEE them in person... last I heard was August/september for the signo... sigh.

Anyone have newer dates?

I am a little naive here -- I've never heard of this company...? Are they better than/ just as good as Britax?

My DS has been in a Britax Marathon since birth (he's now almost 3 and 40 inches tall, 30 pounds).

These look really nice -- but we only have one seat (for my car) and we pass it back and forth (or what fun) if we use DH's car. I don't think a second seat is in our future -- too pricey plus the Marathon should take us to 65lbs and DS is a skinny with a long way to go.

At least just as good. And these new seats will probably top the britax ones currently on the market AND they're cheaper. The Signo has everything the boulevard has AND higher straps and a higher weight limit. I've heard rumors of retractable belts too, but haven't seen for sure.

I've heard the signo will retail at $259

Shall we all drool together now? On cue...



I heard retractable belts mentioned at one point... anyone know about those? or any other features that set them apart from the boulevard?

I cannot wait to get the Signo. Owen is in a Marathon, but he is growing so fast lately...almost time to upgrade!!!
Maybe I should go make him a protein shake right now!!

: I pre-ordered a blush Signo for DD2 a couple weeks ago. I am so excited for late August to get here! I got mine from here: http://www.strollandgo.com/Recaro-Si..._109-934.html#
and after I placed the order, they contacted me and wanted to know if they I wanted them to submit the order to Recaro so my seat will be shipped directly from Recaro instead of going to the company, and then me.

I'm just hoping DD2 slows down growing or else I'll be stealing DD1's second Marathon to use for her until the Recaro gets here.

So they're saying late August now officially?

I wonder what the bottom strap heights are- if this seat will actually fit newborns...

Oh I am SO getting some Signos! In colbalt!

Yippie Ki-yay! I am soooo drolling over them!

Recaro has been around a while, they started out making 5pnt harnesses for race car drivers and customized bucket seats and such for show cars. Then the boosters, and now the harnessed seats. I am tickled pink!

Not only are they bigger and cheaper than the Britaxes, they RF to 35lbs instead of Britaxes 33lbs.

I really love Recaro - and DH drives a WRX, so they're the perfect seat for his car...
so nice to see they have rear-facing ones now... that was the one thing I was a little tenuous about.
post #16 of 166
I can't wait to see the infant seat either, I don't know why, I won't have a child that will fit into one. I think they are officially saying Aug/Sep, or at least that is what Recaro is telling Stroll and Go, who is them telling me that.
post #17 of 166
so, these are supposed to be really good? like good enough i should maybe be thinking about getting one of these for the babe due in october instead of a boulevard?

looks like the britax has better colors/prints though
post #18 of 166
Aw man, I won't need a new seat for awhile! I want one!
post #19 of 166
So what's with all the commotion with these? Why are they so good? I need a new convertible for #2 around sept.

ETA - and what's the difference between the como and the signo?

This is why we are so excited. They will top Britax's slot height and will be cheaper! What's not to love. The Signo will be a seat that my DD2 will probably still be comfortably riding in when she is 5y.
