Nice to know Q - Everything you need to know about Radian® Q Series
First introduced in 2020 Radian® Q Series is our most advanced line-up of all-in-one convertibles. Now with all-new luxury Radian® 3QXT+, what are the key features and differences of Radian® Q Series?
In celebration of our 20th Birthday, we launched the next generation of all-in-one convertible car seat, Radian® Q Series. Originally, we introduced two Q Series models, Radian® 3QX and Radian® 3QXT, both suitable from 4 lbs to 120 lbs and featuring Safe+® Engineering.
This year we introduced an all-new Radian® Q model, Radian® 3QXT+. With three models in the line-up, we thought you’d like to learn more about each and what to expect from the next generation of car seat.
Original Radian® Features
Each of the Q Series models are designed with all the original Radian® features you know and love. We’ve made zero compromise to our original slim-fit 3-across design and you can still expect 10 years from one car seat as Radian® Q Series travels with you from birth as an infant carrier to high-back booster (4 lbs – 120 lbs). All Radian® models are designed to offer rear-facing for longer up to age 4 / 50 lbs.
Radian® models have 3 modes of travel: rear-facing 4 – 50 lbs, forward-facing with harness 22 – 65 lbs and high-back booster 40 – 120 lbs.
Found on each of the Q Series models, Safe+® Engineering is a combination of advanced safety, comfort and testing. Each Q Series model has endured our most rigorous crash testing including front, rear, side and rollover testing using 2x standard crash force. To support our commitment to rear-facing for longer, we designed a Safe+® anti-rebound bar* to reduce rebound rotation by to 50%.
*Radian® 3QXT+ features 2-in-1 Safe+® anti-rebound panel and calf support.
Featuring complete 4-stage newborn protection with Safe+® newborn wedge, Safe+® 2-in-1 infant positioning liner, Safe+® newborn protection insert and Safe+® newborn harness pads. Advanced side impact protection is provided with 8 layers of interlocking EPP and ESP foam, high-density plastic, and steel reinforcement. Additional protection is found in the Safe+® Side Impact Management Pod which is placed on the side of the car seat facing the door and is engineered to channel energy around the back of the car seat and away from the child in the event of a side impact. Radian® 3QXT has been rear-impact tested and with the use of twice the recommended force required by US FMVSS 213.
Featuring 3-stage rear-facing protection with Safe+® newborn high travel wedge, Safe+® 2-in-1 infant positioning liner and Safe+® anti-rebound bar. Radian® 3QX features 6 layers of interlocking EPP and ESP foam, high-density plastic, and steel reinforcement.
Radian® 3QXT this model does not include the side impact management pod. Radian® 3QX has been tested with Safe+® over and above national standards but does not include rear-impact testing or use twice the recommended force required by US FMVSS 213.
Designed with all the features included with Radian® 3QXT, the Radian® 3QXT® is unique in its classic, premium tailoring and finishing alongside its exclusive Safe® 2-in-1 anti-rebound panel. Cleverly designed to provide additional safety and comfort throughout modes, the panel increases stability when rear-facing and reduces rebound rotation by up to 50% while the Adjustable calf support and comfort liner provides additional comfort as they transition to forward-facing. Radian® 3QXT+ is designed with mesh panels and premium fabrics. Easy remove and machine washable for comfort, convenience and style All-in-One. This model comes with 2x XL cup holders and Ultra Mat car seat protector included.
