Pics of ProRide?

I made an impulse buy friday night with DH instigating it. I have no idea how these will fit in my car or with my kids!

Can I see some IRL pics of the ProRide in action, maybe even with toddlers?

The proride is pretty much the same as the signo right?

I had a signo and the legroom IS a joke. I figured my kids could just deal with it. But, it just ended up not working for us. It makes a beautiful ffing seat though.

Here's pics of my ds (then 3 yrs old and 35.5 in ..he's a shorty). This was installed in a vw passat (sedan) btw. It looks more upright in the pic than it really was.





This is why we ended up buying a radian.

Re: Pics of ProRide?

Jessica, I think it's modeled after the Signo and Como..

and wow, yeah, legroom is apparently a joke, haha! Looks similar to the legroom in the MA70 we had... only Radians from now on =P

I really like the pink and brown Recaro covers though..

Re: Pics of ProRide?

Yes, the original Signo, Signo G2 and ProRide are all the same thing...which never made any sense to me
Anyway, I really liked my Signo and G2 for my kids up until ds was 1.5y/o and dd2 was 2y/o because they are super comfy, have the best harness adjustor and it worked really well with the long belt stalks in my old van. But yes, leg room is a joke But if the child that will be using the ProRide is smaller then ya, its great!
I had 2 Signos for ds & dd2 I loved them so much.



Here is ds at 1.5y/o 27lbs. and you can see how the leg room was tight

dd2 at 3y/o


Here is dd1 when she was 5y/o. She loved sleeping in the Signo

Re: Pics of ProRide?

I will have to dig through PB to see what all I've got, but we love our ProRide (wearing signo clothes ). It is an awesome FF seat - even with a base. DS2 was FF in his for awhile and even comments now that he misses "those pillows".

DD is 2 years 7 months, 24 lbs and around 33 inches and it is getting cramped, but she has not complained.

I have never had a hard time installing it in any vehicle I've put it in.

Here's DD around 13months


And a few months ago

Re: Pics of ProRide?

They are sooo pretty. If I had a big car and a FF kid (and extra money), I'd get one!

I love the look of thi a seat, it looks so comfy other wise.

Hopefully it will work for us for a while. If not we will be back to the drawing board. Sigh.
