Bugaboo Turtle Air by Nuna Infant Car Seat and Recline Base



From the first ride home from the hospital to all your trips after, the Bugaboo Turtle Air by Nuna is a lightweight, secure and comfortable infant car seat that fits all of Bugaboo's strollers to keep you on the go without waking baby up.

Nearly two pounds lighter than the Turtle One model, the Turtle Air also adds features like magnetic harness holders, a height-adjustable headrest and a no-rethread harness for easier adjustments.

The Turtle Air is made with patented Tailor tech memory foam for side impact protection and an Aeroflex foam shell that compresses to absorb and diffuse energy in a crash.With built-in seat belt paths, the Turtle Air can be installed without the base for travel and taxis.

The Bugaboo Turtle Air keeps your baby comfortable in any climate, thanks to a magnetic "Snooze Shade" that provides ventilated UPF 50+ sun coverage and a large, mesh peek-a-boo window. The included infant insert is made of merino wool, a breathable fiber that naturally keeps baby cool in warm temperatures and warm in cool temperatures, and the Oeko-Tex certified fabrics are removable and washable.

An innovative reclining base solves common installation problems that allow you to customize the fit of your car seat for both your baby and your vehicle. The recline base offers four, bubble-free recline angle guides, allowing your baby to sit in a more upright position to add comfort as they grow.

A steel load leg minimizes forward rotation by as much as 90%, while an anti-rebound panel reduces rearward motion. Steel-reinforced rigid LATCH connectors extend to four positions, creating a tighter fit against your vehicle seat while aiding installation in a wider variety of cars.

The Bugaboo Turtle Air by Nuna is compatible only with Bugaboo strollers (Donkey, Fox, Lynx, Bee, Ant and Cameleon3/3+).
