We’ve been absolutely swamped with enquiries about the Evolve, Australia’s first Type G child restraint, so we thought we’d post all of the most common questions and answers here for easy access!
What is the Evolve?
The Evolve is the first Type G child restraint in Australia. A Type G child restraint is one which is designed to be used with an in-built harness from 6 months to approximately 8 years old. Previously, once children outgrew their in-built harnesses (normally around age 4 to 6), they would move into a booster seat used with the vehicle lap sash seatbelt – now, there is another, safer option.
Does it have ISOFix?
No, the new 2013 Australian Standard prohibits ISOFix on child restraints designed to seat older children. In Australia, you will only see ISOFix on child restraints designed for children up to about age 4 (Type A rearward facing and Type B forward facing child restraints, specifically). We’ll have ISOFix related announcements to make a little later!
