Britax B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit+ Infant Car Seat Review

the next generation from Britax


Today we are digging in on the features of the B-Safe Gen2 infant car seats from Britax.

If one of your closest mom friends has suggested the B-Safe 35, B-Safe Ultra, or the Endeavors then you’ve come to the right place! Read on for the 411 on the newest Britax infant seat line-up now known as B-Safe Gen 2.

The biggest upgrade? More space for baby and packed with safety features --we can get behind that!

First, let's talk about your options. There are 3 B-Safe Gen2 models to choose from.

B-Safe Gen 2
B-Safe Gen 2 FlexFit
B-Safe Gen 2 FlexFit +

The FlexFit+ is the most premium of the seats and is the one we are going to be digging in on today. All 3 seats feature a Britax Performance Fabric known as Safewash but the FlexFit and the FlexFit+ are offered in additional fabric options like StayClean and our favourite fabric of all time, Cool N’ Dry. Cool N’ Dry does exactly what you think it should – it keeps your babe cool and dry by wicking moisture away from baby.

The Gen2 seats can be used for babies from 5-35 lbs and up to 32” and come with a 6 position no re-thread* 5-point harness. The harness & headrest move together to create the perfect fit as your baby grows and makes it easy to adjust when your little one has a growth spurt. These seats are also travel system ready—which means you can easily move them from base to stroller in a snap! 

B-safe Gen2 INSTALL

You can install this car seat in 3 simple steps with what Britax calls the SafeCenter LATCH.

  1. connect lower anchors
  2. pull the straps to tighten
  3. click the car seat carrier into the base
Thes FlexFit and the FlexFit+ models also the option of a European Belt Guide* for increased stability when installing the seat without a base. The base of the car seat reclines to allow for the perfect install in your vehicle and the easy-to-read wheel helps you to understand once you’ve gotten it just right. This brings us to some of the other included safety features... 


SAFETY features


Britax is known for their safety features so you can rest assured that the Gen2 infant car seats were built with a high-strength steel reinforced base. Other safety features?

  • SafeCell crumple zone
  • two layers of side impact protection* that create a protective shell and head-to-toe safety [FlexFit and FlexFit+]
  • an anti-rebound bar to helps reduce movement in a crash [FlexFit+ only]

COMFORT FOR BABY


We mentioned this off the top but the Britax Gen2 seats were re-designed allowing more space for baby – an extra inch of room to be exact! The smooth-to-touch performance fabrics that we mentioned above also contribute to that comfy cozy ride for your precious cargo.

Let's not forget the parents, you'll appreciate the ergonomic carry handle and simple one-handed buckle release.
