The BRITAX MARATHON 70 Convertible Car Seat achieves optimum head safety through the combination of BRITAX SafeCell Technology, integrated steel bars, and a Versa-Tether, which work together to minimize head excursion and reduce the risk of head injury during a frontal impact. It also features easy installation, Side Impact Protection, and innovative details for your child's comfort and safety. The seat fits children in the rear-facing position weighing from 5 to 40 pounds, and children in the forward-facing position starting at one year old and 20 pounds, up to 70 pounds.
BRITAX 360 Degree Protection
The BRITAX MARATHON 70 features technologies that work to minimize injury to your child during a crash from any direction, including both frontal and side impact crashes - the most frequent types of crashes. These technologies work together with other features on the car seat to minimize injury to your child during a crash by:
SafeCell Technology for Advanced Head Safety
Designed with SafeCell Technology, the MARATHON 70 features SafeCells, which are engineered structures located in the base of the seat designed to compress in the event of a crash. This compression significantly lowers the center of gravity and counteracts the forward rotation of the car seat, delivering unprecedented performance in a crash.

The MARATHON 70 also features integrated steel bars, which strengthen the connection to the vehicle seat and reduce the forward flexing of the car seat. In addition, the energy-absorbing Versa-Tether anchors the top of the car seat and minimizes forward rotation of the car seat to reduce the crash forces that can reach your child if an accident occurs. These three features work together as a system to provide revolutionary head safety protection for your child.
Side Impact Protection for Added Security
To keep your child safe in the event of a side-impact collision, the MARATHON 70 includes Side Impact Protection. Side Impact Protection is a system composed of a rigid seat shell with deep side walls and energy-absorbing EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) foam lining the seat shell. These combined features work together to protect your child's head and chest from incoming crash forces by distributing the forces over a larger surface area, helping shield your child from vehicle intrusion and contain your child's head and body in the seat.
Premium Fit and Comfort Features
Whether children are watching the world go by or snuggling in for a nap, they'll enjoy that the MARATHON 70 reclines in both the forward and rear positions. And thanks to additional features, which include high-density comfort foam and a plush cover set with a matching belly pad, they'll always ride in style and comfort. A 70-pound weight capacity, two buckle positions, and a tangle-free five-point harness with ten harness-height settings provide a snug, custom fit for your growing child. Plus, an optional Infant Positioning Insert (sold separately) allows you to properly and snugly fit smaller infants into the car seat.

Ease-of-Use for Safety and Convenience
Packed with perks for parents, the MARATHON 70 makes it easy to secure your child in the proper position without guesswork. Premium lower LATCH connectors make for a quick, simple, and tight installation, while the push-button allows you to easily uninstall the connectors. Easy-to-access built-in lock-offs allow you to install the car seat with ease using your vehicle's lap and shoulder belt. The quick-adjust harness system and buckle allow you to reposition the harness height without disassembling the harness straps.
Additionally, an anti-slip contoured base grips and protects the vehicle seat, ensuring a tight installation in all types of vehicles. Convenient holders keep harness straps out of the way when you're placing your child in the seat, and the plush cover set with matching pads removes easily for cleaning without requiring you to disassemble or uninstall the car seat.
The BRITAX MARATHON 70 Convertible Car Seat is backed by a one-year limited warranty.
What's in the Box
One BRITAX MARATHON 70 Convertible Car Seat and manual.
It was easy to install, easy to change the length of belts, and easy to put her in. All I got to say is this seat is a piece a cake compared to the infant car seat we had.
There are some reviews that state that this seat is hard to install or that the belts tangle... I took the old seat out put this one in all in a total of 10 minutes. It is easy. I also love how the seat does not slide like my other one did, we don't have the latch system so the other seat seemed loose in the car vs this one does not move!
It is a bigger seat but we have it fully reclined - like it states- and there is room in our car for the passenger, I little tighter then with the other but it is doable.
All I got to say is that I would give it 10 stars if I could, if you are hesitating on spending over $200 on a seat, look at the video and see all the tests they do for safety. Also, this is one of the only seats that I could find that you can have a child in there up to 70 lbs. This is the jaguar of all car seats!
I noticed a few upgrades vs older models,smaller things that really make a difference.
1.The slide up and down harness adjustments,TOTALLY AWESOME!
2.The little elastic on the belly pad,TOTALLY AWESOME!(the one on our older roundabout fell off constantly and finally got lost.
3.The strap tension tightener is under the cover and in a way that the child can't loosen it and become unsafe.
4.the belt holder for seat belt in the vehicle is kind of odd,couldn't figure it out.
The cover is very nice in azalea,it is more purple tone in person than in the photos online(which I preferred),the insert is an extra added cushion behind the child and my daughter is slightly reclined in the normal position that when she's asleep she looks very cozy.

I have it installed in a 02 ford wind star behind the driver's seat in a bench seat,It fits very well.I am using the latch system and had to remove the headrest.
Why I love this seat:
The seat is VERY easy to install with the latch system and almost as easy with a seat belt. Each latch strap has its own buckle. I installed it rear-facing with the latch in about 5 minutes. (That doesn't include the time it took me to read the manual though - which EVERYONE should do prior to installing any carseat).
The seat has 3 different recline settings for a more custom fit in your vehicle - since backseats aren't all at the same angle. This is an awesome feature.
