rolling road test
Our stroller pre-production samples take on a bumpy track on a huge treadmill, running for approximately 224 miles.* We run the test up to 10 times before we’re satisfied.
curb mount test
This test simulates mounting a curb to make sure your stroller can conquer any city street with ease. The stroller takes the curb 10,000 times per cycle, and we repeat the test 5-7 times on each pre-production sample.*
Once our initial tests are complete, we take our strollers outside to really make sure they can stand up to the elements. Each stroller takes on a course featuring harsh terrain like mud, sand, and cobblestone, and obstacles like ramps and stairs. Oh, and we do 1,000 laps…and run the test up to 3 times.
Before everything is approved, we make sure to test each element of the stroller pre-production sample for durability. That means things like opening and closing the canopy…10,000 times. Or folding and unfolding the stroller…3,000 times. Look, we like to be thorough.
*Testing for strollers sold in European and other international markets may include additional cycles to meet local testing requirements.
Tested 2X Structural Impact Force
Our car seats are tested for structural integrity by applying the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) Crash Pulse Test, which is approximately twice the impact force required by US FMVSS 213 standard.
Rollover Testing Standard
While no rollover testing is currently required under US FMVSS 213, our car seats have been tested using the TRUE Test Plus™ testing standard, based on the European rollover testing procedure.
While no side-impact testing is currently required under the US FMVSS 213, our car seats are side-impact tested for occupant retention with the built-in 5-point harness system.
Our car seats meet or exceed the child restraint criteria for a frontal crash test under the US FMVSS 213 standard.
While no rear-impact crash testing is currently required under US FMVSS 213, our car seats have been rear-impact tested based on the European Standard Rear-Impact testing procedure.
Extreme Temperature Testing
Our car seats are tested for structural integrity by applying the US FMVSS 213 Crash Pulse to a car seat at extreme hot and cold temperatures.
