Sunshine Kids Radian 65 SL Convertible Car Seat Description

One of the strongest car seats on the market, the Sunshine Kids Radian 65SL allows use of LATCH up to 65 lbs and features a steel alloy frame for super strength.


The Radian 65SL solves a major car eat safety problem: incorrect car seat installation. Of all the convertible car seats available on the market today, only Sunshine Kids offers a SuperLATCH system that allows the use of LATCH beyond 48 lbs.

Now parents can use easier, more intuitive LATCH to install their car seat right up to 65 lbs instead of having to revert to more difficult seatbelt installation after 48 lbs.

Standout Features:

  • SuperLATCH installs in one minute and allows use of LATCH up to 65 lbs!
  • No need to reinstall the seat after 48 lbs

  • No seat belt required, no top tether required
  • Rear-facing to 40 lbs
  • Side Impact Protection
  • Forward-facing to 65 lbs

Convenience: The Radian 65SL convertible car seat is a great choice for travel. Fold it up; move it from car to car. The Sunshine Kids Radian 65SL is even FAA approved for use on aircraft.

And hey Mom and Dad, when you’re traveling with baby, you can fold up the seat for easy carrying! One downfall is its weight. Although designed with the traveler in mind, this seat is not lightweight.

Installation: Thanks to SuperLATCH, the Sunshine Kids Radian 65SL convertible car seat installs in just a minute using LATCH and requires neither seatbelts nor the top tether. The Radian 65SL can be installed with your vehicle’s seatbelts if you prefer.

SuperLATCH incorporates high strength connectors, Steelweave webbing, and the Easy-Tite adjuster, which makes getting a rock-solid installation just a matter of giving a quick pull. These features, combined with the Radian 65SL’s steel alloy frame, makes Sunshine Kids SuperLATCH the only LATCH system that can be used up to 65 lbs.


You might be worried about using LATCH over 48 lbs, but don’t worry – all LATCH anchors in cars meet the same NHTSA requirements, so a LATCH anchor in a Toyota is made to the same specifications as a LATCH anchor in a Ford. Sunshine Kids tested the Radian 65SL to both FMVSS 213 and NCAP standards using only SuperLATCH and no top tether, and passed both tests.

Sunshine Kids and EliteCarSeats.com recommends using Top Tether, but for those with vehicles with no Top Tether anchor, the XTSL does not require the use of Top Tether for proper safety.

Note: SuperLATCH past 48 lbs is only intended for use on vehicles manufactured after September 2005. If your vehicle was manufactured before September 2005, you will need to reinstall your Sunshine Kids car seat after 48 lbs using your vehicle’s seat belts.

Benefits for Baby: The Sunshine Kids Radian 65SL provides both safety and comfort for your precious passenger. Soft foam in the seat feels comfy even after long car rides. The side wings not only protect, they also offer a place for nodding heads to rest.

Because the Sunshine Kids Radian 65SL has a rear-facing limit of 40 lbs, your child can remain rear-facing well past their first birthday. The 65 lb forward-facing limit keeps your child in a harness longer.

For added safety, the SafeStop harness system prevents serious neck injury for forward-facing children under 40 lbs in the event of collision. Both EliteCarSeats.com and Sunshine Kids strongly recommend keeping children rear-facing until the 40 lb rear-facing limit.

Safety:


  • SuperLATCH encourages proper installation
  • Side Impact Protection
  • EPS foam
  • 5-point harness
  • Meets or exceeds FMVSS 213 and NCAP

Comparison: For a higher forward-facing limit with SuperLATCH, check out the Sunshine Kids Radian 80SL. The Radian 80SL also has a higher rear-facing limit of 45 lbs.
