Britax Frontier 85 SICT Booster Seat Description

The Britax Frontier 85 SICT toddler car seat comes equipped with the same great features as the Frontier 85, plus the added safety of Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT). Always striving for the highest safety, Britax added these cushions on either side of the seat to reduce side impact forces by redirecting the force away from the child. Like the Frontier 85, the Frontier 85 SICT features a harness weight limit of 85 lbs and a shoulder harness height of 20″ to accommodate growing kids. Protecting your children shouldn’t be a hassle, and with the Frontier 85 SICT it doesn’t have to be. With easy-to-use features and adjustments that grow with your child, the Frontier 85 SICT harness-to-booster seat will give you years of reliable use.


Standout Features:

  • Side impact cushion technology that diverts crash forces away from the child
  • Quick-adjust head restraint and no re-thread harness
  • Features a high 5-point harness capacity of 85 lbs
  • Shoulder harness height of 20″
  • Removable seat cover

Benefits for You: The Britax Frontier 85 SICT will be there to protect your child as they grow. The tangle-free 5-point harness adjusts to 10 height positions and 3 buckle positions, without having to disassemble or rethread the harness, helping keep your children safe through their growth spurts and saving you time and money. This harness-to-booster toddler seat accommodates children at least 2 years old and 25 lbs, up to 120 lbs.


The Frontier 85 SICT features an easy-remove cover that allows for simple cleaning without uninstalling the car seat. Color-coded vehicle belt guides indicate the path and positioning of the vehicle seat belt, making installation easy and helping ensure the safest ride for baby.

Installation: The Britax Frontier 85 SICT can be used in two ways: as a forward-facing 5-point harness toddler seat and as a belt-positioning booster. Premium push button LATCH connectors let you install the car seat quickly, simply and tightly. LATCH may be used for installation as a booster at any weight range. A newly designed seat belt path also makes for an easy installation when using your vehicle’s seat belts.

Whether installed with LATCH or your vehicle’s seat belts, Britax requires the use of a top tether when using the Frontier 85 SICT in harness mode for children weighing 65-85 lbs. To locate the appropriate tether anchor locations in your vehicle, check your vehicle owner’s manual.

Note: Britax advises that the LATCH system only be used until 40 lbs in the harness position, unless your vehicle manufacturer gives a higher weight limit. When your child reaches that weight limit, it will be necessary to use your vehicle’s seat belt for installation while in harness mode. However, the 40 lb LATCH weight limit does not apply to the Frontier 85 SICT when used in booster mode because the Lower Anchors are only intended to secure the weight of the booster seat itself (approximately 22  lbs in this case). The vehicle’s lap and shoulder belts secure the weight of the child; because of this, you can use LATCH with the Frontier 85 SICT in its belt-positioning booster mode up to the 120 lb weight limit. For LATCH use with your child in harness position, refer to your vehicle owner’s manual.

Benefits for Baby: With superior protection from features like side impact cushion technology and true side impact protection, this harness-to-booster seat is designed with your growing child’s safety in mind. The energy absorbing base and foam liner absorb impact forces should an accident occur, and the energy-absorbing versa-tether slows forward movement during impact, providing greater security for your precious passenger.
 
Your child will be ready to snuggle into their Frontier 85 SICT with its comfort foam padding and soft fabrics that always make for a comfy ride. Built-in armrests and dual cup holders combine comfort and convenience during every trip.


Safety:

  • Side impact cushion technology that diverts crash forces away from child
  • 5-point harness
  • True side impact protection
  • Meets or exceeds FMVSS 213
  • HUGS harness ultra guard system reduces forward head movement
  • EPS foam liners absorb and distribute crash forces
  • Compatible with SecureGuard (sold separately) to prevent child from sliding under the lapbelt

  • Energy-absorbing versa-tether attaches the top of the car seat to an anchor in your vehicle
  • Energy-absorbing base deforms in the event of a crash to absorb impact forces

Comparison: The Britax Frontier 85 SICT is a unique product. However, if you’re looking for a harness-to-booster seat with the capability of converting to a backless booster, check out the Graco Nautilus 3-in-1. The Nautilus works three ways (harness toddler seat, belt-positioning high-back booster, and backless booster), but its weight limits are much lower than the Frontier, with the maximum capacity of 65 lbs in the harness position and 100 lbs both booster positions. 

In booster mode, the Frontier 85 SICT is in line with the Sunshine Kids Monterey for the highest weight limit of 120 lbs.

The Britax Frontier 85 SICT is very similar to its predecessor, the Frontier 85. Both seats have an 85 lbs harness weight limit and a 120 lbs booster weight limit as well as EPS foam lining and an Energy Absorbing base and Versa-Tether. The Frontier 85 SICT features Side Impact Cushion Technology on either side of the seat to reduce side impact forces by redirecting the force away from the child. The SICT is about 2.5 lbs heavier than the Frontier 85 and is wider due to the side impact cushions.

Britax Frontier 85 SICT Booster Seat Details

  • Side impact cushion technology features energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of the child seat to reduce side impact crash energy by 45%, by diverting crash forces away from your child and providing extra protection for the adjacent passenger
  • True side impact protection distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, contains the head and body, and keeps the head, neck and spine “in true” or aligned, to limit injury
  • Energy-absorbing versa-tether features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • Energy-absorbing base deforms in the event of a crash to absorb impact forces
  • Energy-absorbing foam Liner absorbs and distributes crash forces
