    question about the new Radian!

    Does it still have the required foot?

    If yes, can we talk about it for a sec? Cause it really bugs me. It's such a great seat, the only one narrow enough for some cars, RF tether cheaper than Britax, tall shell, and yet I'm very nervous about recommending it to people who come here for advice because I think they're more likely to turn their kids FF sooner because either (i) they're sick of not having enough space to drive comfortably or (ii) they're toddlesr dont wanna sit reclined at 45 degrees anymore.
    Now that the new seat is coming out with removable straps and headwings I'm all for getting one instead of an MA or Blvd when dd outgrows the RA RFing. But I'm sure many of you remember I cant get it upright in my center seat...

    Please tell me the foot is gone!!!

    I don't believe so. The XT is also going to have a $280 price tag, so it's going to be right there with the Marathon.

    Super. That means it'll be priced to compete with the BV up here. So about $350 or so.

    OP, from what I've read, the foot is still there, and mandatory for rf installation.

    The foot is still there, but it's sculpted so it's a bit more narrow at the bottom. It may fit your center seat better.

    here's a picture of the redesigned foot from carseatblog.com.
