Superior Safety: Why We Love CYBEX Aton 2 with SensorSafe
The Cybex Aton 2 Sensorsafe is one of our most beloved car seats and an exceptional choice. It boasts the best crash test score and some of the best crash test sensor data in BabyGearLab reviews, making it an impressive option for any parent with safety concerns. It’s stylishly designed and rates above average in most metrics. One of our favorite features, the SensorSafe technology, is built into the chest clip and provides instant alerts about your child's safety and well-being. The Cybex Aton 2 infant car seat is also a cinch to install with the LATCH system and features soft, high-quality fabric and cushy padding, making it super comfy for babies. Let’s take a closer look at what we love about this car seat.
Why We Love the Cybex Aton 2 Car Seat with SensorSafe
Top-notch crash test performance
The Cybex crash test results indicate it delivers a higher degree of protection than many similar seats. This is helped, in part, by its load leg base that stabilizes the car seat and prevents rotation, reducing crash forces by up to 50 percent. The Cybex Aton 2 also features a distinctive side-impact apparatus on the handle that claims it will reduce or transfer the impact of crash forces to the shell of the seat.
The Cybex Aton 2 base is super easy to install, with LATCH guides that help make getting to the U anchors on the vehicle more observable and simpler to access. These plastic guides basically form a pocket for the connectors to go through so that they’re easier to reach. The base also features push-button connectors for LATCH which are super simple to connect and disconnect. Even the straps are simpler to tighten and loosen than some other similar car seats. The level on the base is another nice bonus and helps you find the proper installation angle.
This car seat integrates important safety technology into the chest clip of the harness to alert when unsafe situations arise. The alerts are provided through a vehicle receiver and the caregiver's smartphone to ensure safety for children in a range of situations, all through a user-friendly app.
Comfort and style
The Cybex Aton 2 is a high-quality choice with lots of comfort features. The padding is nice and cushy, and the jersey knit fabric is soft and cozy. The canopy fits the frame snuggly, extends and collapses easily, and looks beautiful.
What Parents Are Saying About the Cybex Aton 2 with SensorSafe
“The infant car seat is definitely one of the baby items that my husband and I spent the most time researching while we waited for our son. When it comes to safety, Cybex goes above and beyond and gave us the peace of mind we were looking for. The base uses a belt tension plate device that makes for an easy and tight installation, but of course, be sure to read the manual and visit a Certified CPST (Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician) to have your installation and fit checked. The level indicators make it easy to know you have it in correctly. We loved the load leg and the extra peace of mind it gave us though it would have been nice if it locked into the closed position when the base isn’t in use, not a huge issue since we don’t uninstall the base often but just a small bother to have it flopping about. We choose to install the car seat in the middle so we did not use the Linear Side-impact Protection, but I imagine this feature would be really great for situations where the car seat can’t be in the middle (such as having multiple car seats installed). The one-handed harness adjustment is a total must-have to make getting baby in and out easy, though you have to be sure to pull the straps evenly or they will get uneven which is an easy fix (google no-rethread harness uneven) but still not fun to have to do. When traveling with our car seat the ability to install it with the shoulder strap without the base made it so much easier not having the lug the base around too. Plus it is certified for airplane use which was important for us as well. At 9.5 pounds, it is among the lighter infant car seats on the market but once you add a baby in there it does get heavy fast but it’s not bad at all for quick trips in and out of the house. Overall, we love Cybex for their safety features, ease of use, and comfortable fit for our son and the sleek design is definitely the cherry on top.”
“This car seat has to be the most amazing seat for babies I have come across. As soon as we opened the box, we noticed how comfortable it looked. The seating and cushion part of the seat is super soft and fluffy for our little girl. It comes with a Cybex Aton 2 infant insert for smaller babies which works great and keeps her snug and safe. The seat itself can be adjusted easily with an easy adjuster behind the seat so that the straps lay exactly where they need to (and you can do it while the baby lays on the seat). The canopy is also an excellent feature as it protects from the sun, goes almost all the way down to keep the baby in the shade, and is breathable to keep the baby safe.
"Although the comfort of the seat is important, the safety of it is what makes this seat a winner. The chest clip has a sensor (comes with an attachment you plug into the car) that alerts you when the baby has laid in the same position for more than 2 hours, if the car is too hot or too cold, if the baby tries to take the chest clip off, and even if you walk away further than 30 ft and forget the baby inside. The seat also comes with a device on the side that will help absorb the impact in the case of an accident while keeping the baby safer. The handle also helps absorb the impact in the case of an accident increasing the safety of the baby. If that isn't enough, the car base comes with a leg that extends to the floor of the car (it is adjustable) and helps protect the baby even more in case of an accident. It also has the option to put the car seat in the car without a base (using the seat belt to secure it). This is truly the best and safest car seat we could have found for our daughter.”
