Britax offers three combination seats: the Pioneer, the Frontier, and the Pinnacle. These seats are forward facing seats that have a harness, but convert to high back boosters as well. We’re often asked what the differences are, so we’ve compiled a comparison for you.
I’ll start this review with a confession: I’m a huge fan of Britax seats. My oldest daughter rode in a Britax Wizard for most of her rear facing years and my younger daughter still rides in a Britax Boulevard occasionally. I’ve found these seats very easy to install and use properly and the Wizard made me an early fan of the no rethread harness. For the record, the “best” seat is the one that the caregiver can install and use properly *every* time.
When the Britax Frontier 90 was released, we did a quickie review of the new Harness-2-Booster Britax Frontier 90 with the ClickTight installation system. We have been given the opportunity to look more in-depth at the seat, and are excited to share it with you!
When Britax announced the release of the new Frontier 90 and the Pinnacle 90, I will admit that I was pretty skeptical. As a CPST I’m used to sweating, struggling, and wrangling seats to get them installed properly. And that can only happen after figuring out whether to use lower anchors, or seat belt and determining how the seat belt locks, if I need a locking clip, or if there is a lower anchors weight limit I need to account for.
