The Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System is the multipurpose travel stroller you’ve been looking for. This exceptional carriage, stroller, and car seat combo is a durable travel system that includes the SafeMax Rear-Facing Infant Car Seat and SafeZone Base. The modular frame can be configured with up to 6 modes of use allowing your child to be parent-facing or forward-facing. While the stroller can easily convert to carriage mode, toddler mode, or a frame stroller with infant car seat. The toddler seat has a maximum weight of 50 lb, with height recommendations of up to 38 inch (96 cm), while the car seat has a maximum weight of 35 lb. and up to 32 inch. The SafeMax Rear-Facing Infant Car Seat is not only comfortable with a removable body pillow, it has been rollover and side-impact tested. It features an anti-rebound bar that limits the amount of rebound movement experienced in a frontal impact. Our integrated belt lock-off system provides peace of mind that the base has been securely and correctly installed. The Evenflo SafeMax car seat has been designed and tested for structural integrity at energy levels nearly two times the federal crash test standard. We’ve also tested this system to simulate a side-impact event and rollover event. Plus, it includes a stay-in-car base that allows for a quick and safe infant car seat connection from stroller to car and vice-versa. The feature-rich stroller includes cruiser tires to make it easy to navigate over multiple surfaces, a large canopy with a peek-a-boo window, an over-sized storage basket, removable arm bar with cup holder and snack tray, and convenient self-standing fold. For 100 years, Evenflo has been a trusted source of precision-manufactured, high-quality child-safety equipment engineered for real-life situations. Additionally, all Evenflo car seats and strollers include ParentLink customer-service perks, like real-time chat and free live video installation support.
