    Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    Images are thumbnails, click to open in new window to view full size. If you're on the app, try using your mobile browser instead.

    Evenflo Sureride is on the left, Evenflo Tribute is on the right






    The buckle shown on the right is the old style Evenflo buckle (seat DOM is 3/17/11). The new Evenflo Tributes sold will have the same buckle style as the Sureride shown on the right.


    Showing the belt path and harness location on the Sureride


    This is the Tribute, when installed RF the seat belt/LATCH strap can push on the harness from the hips

    Re: Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    Evenflo Sureride left, Britax Frontier 85 right

    Lowest headrest setting for FR


    Tallest headrest setting








    This is deceiving, the Sureride is 18.5" at its widest and the FR is 19"

    Please let me know if you'd like different pictures. These are the seats I have available tonight. In the near future I may also be able to take comparison pics with the Graco MyRide 65 and Evenflo Triumph 65/Advance. I can take pictures in a 2008 Chevy Malibu if wanted also.

    Wow, I can't believe it makes a Frontier look small! Is that the same annoying buckle as Graco is using?

    Ugh, I tried somebody's Graco the other day and i despise that buckle. All these nice seats really need to change buckles. Thanks for the pics. I definitely wasn't picturing the size of the SureRide right.

    Re: Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    Sureride installation- very easy both RF and FF with seat belt. FF with LATCH was easy, but the tilt lock to loosen the LATCH strap was difficult to undo. I did not use LATCH RF. All pics are in a 2008 Malibu

    RF in center with the line level to ground. The passenger seat is comfortably reclined and moved all the way back. The driver seat could have been moved all the way back also- it fit perfectly between the front seats without touching


    The Sureride didn't contact the back of the vehicle seat much higher than the belt path due to the car's head rest






    With the headrest removed it was flush


    I was able to put the Sureride and Tribute next to each other FF/RF, FF/FF, RF/RF with independent tightness very easily. They did not puzzle well at all as they hit each other at the widest spots of the seat- I believe the total width was around 35.5".

    The Frontier 85 and Sureride were also easy to install independently tight next to each other but did not puzzle at all. The total width at the cupholder was about 37" with the Sureride RF or FF.

    With the combination of any two of the seats, the only possibility of a 3 across in my car would be a tiny child in an RSTV. A BubbleBum would be too wide.

    Re: Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    Glad to see it fitting in a car so well! Had a mom return one the other day because she said the Tahoe it was in was too small Turned out their problem was they had not switched the LATCH to the RF belt path and it probably would have worked, though, I wish I could have played with it (curse you, Evenflo, for setting up LATCH in FF belt paths, you have no idea what kinds of headaches this causes )

    Re: Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    I'm not a fan of switching the LATCH straps on Evenflo convertibles... my only other brand convertible has been a MyRide which obviously doesn't require any switching I still need to try it out RF outboard- I wanted to find somebody taller than me to put the seat in a comfortable position first so I can see how upright it would need to be. I like how high the RF belt path is though!

    Re: Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    online the sureride looks very similar to the tribute, it's amazing how much bigger it is in person, and it was great to see it next to the frontier. Brianna, you have an argos, right? can you do pics comparing it to the sureride, my DD has less than 1" of growth left in the nauti and I think I think I need to reharness her in her gma's van, so I'm thinking about the sureride, IDK

    The Argos is permanently installed in J's sitter's vehicle and I don't generally see her but I'll do my best to get a picture for you.

    don't worry about it, I don't need a picture . just trying to decide what to do
    eta: looking at your pics again I just don't know, lol. If I get the sr I will need to get a monterey down the road and that's gonna be more than the frontier, and I don't have anyone to pass it down to since I will need a convertible for DNi before DD outgrows the sr, and I"m sure I'll change my mind 100 times before I actually buy something,lol

    I haven't seen him in the Argos in months and I haven't put him in the Sureride yet. I texted his mom to see if she can grab the Argos when she gets out tonight.

    thanks, but don't worry about, I just thought if it was handy than I'd ask. I think I'm leaning towards the frontier anyway. as far as top harness height nauti/argos is 18", sr is 19", frontier is 20", right?

    I should be able to get my hands on it tonight or tomorrow. I hope to get pics of J in as many seats as he will tolerate.

    Sorry for pic sizes, I'm on my phone. J is 3 1/2, 40 pounds, 40", approx 15.25" torso. RF pics are for pictures only, he will not ride that way.

    Sureride RF- he is on the 4th slot

    Re: Evenflo Sureride, Evenflo Tribute and Britax Frontier 85 pics

    Thanks for the pictures. I ordered a sure ride yesterday from target. I already have two MRs which I love. Today I have three MRs in my van, lol.

    Would you say the sure ride will last longer FFing than the MR?

    Assuming average torso growth, 1-2 years longer, possibly 3 in the Sureride than the MyRide. In most cars he has less room in the MR though, I was able to get it very upright in my car.
