More Safety, more Convenience: Meet the Advanced Impact Shield
More safety: The Pallas G i-Size car seat reduces the risk of neck injuries by 40% - thanks to its Advanced Impact Shield: It acts in a similar way to an airbag, allowing the child to roll forward over the shield, while impact force is distributed across its large surface area. This drastically reduces strain on the vulnerable neck and protects the child’s head.
More convenience: The Advanced Impact Shield has an integrated belt that simply can be clicked into a buckle and tightened. Thus, securing your child has never been easier and more reliable and leaning over your child or struggling with seatbelts is now a thing of the past. Plus, the impact shield’s adjustable fit ensures excellent comfort for your growing child.

- User Guide
Can I install the ISOFIX System on a car seat which doesn't have ISOFIX anchorage points?
No. Car seat models without an ISOFIX System cannot be retrofitted. Please do not adapt or tamper with car seats to make them fit, as the authorities do not allow any technical changes to them.
What kind of clothing should my child wear when seated in the car seat?
Thick clothing prevents the harness/vehicle belt or impact shield from lying tight against the body of the child. Only a correctly adjusted restraint system can offer maximum protection. For this reason, your child should wear everyday clothing. Thick clothing such as winter jackets and clothing with hoods (e.g. hoodies) as well as hats should be avoided where possible. Once your child has been positioned in the car seat, he/she can be covered with an extra blanket for warmth.
Can I use the car seat even when the side airbag is activated?
Yes, the side airbag can remain activated when using the car seat.
Are both side-impact protectors (L.S.P.s) needed?
The Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P.) reduces the forces of a side-impact collision and thus also the risk of injury. Generally, we advise parents to install or fold out the L.S.P. on both sides of the car seat. However, if there is insufficient space for the L.S.P. nearest the middle of the vehicle, it is not absolutely essential. For safety reasons, please ensure that the L.S.P. nearest the door is always installed or folded out.
How should the headrest be adjusted?
Only a headrest adjusted to the optimum height will give your child the best possible protection and comfort. The height can be adjusted to various positions. The headrest must be adjusted so there is no more than 2 cm between the child’s shoulders and the bottom of the headrest.
Can I use the car seat on laterally-facing vehicle seats?
It is not permitted to use the car seat on laterally-facing vehicle seats.
Can I use the car seat on rear-facing vehicle benches (e.g. in vans or minibuses)?
Yes. You can use this car seat on rear-facing vehicle benches as long as the vehicle bench is approved for use by adults and has a 3-point vehicle belt. The headrest of the vehicle bench should not be removed when fitting on a rear-facing seat.
Can I use this car seat on a flight?
No, this car seat is not approved for use on an airplane.
Can I also use this seat in a car without ISOFIX anchorage points?
No, this seat can only be installed in vehicles with ISOFIX anchorage points, due to the fact that it must be installed with ISOFIX in every position. Only in vehicle belt mode (when the child is 100 – 150 cm in height) can this car seat be used without ISOFIX and top tether. Please refer to the User Guide.
Do high-back booster seats perform better than booster seats?
When compared to booster seats, high-back booster seats considerably reduce the risk of injury.
• Booster seats do not provide proper protection from side-impacts
• A high-back booster seat is equipped with side protection which protects the child from injury in the case of a side-impact collision
• High-back booster seats include a shoulder belt routing which can be adjusted to the height of the child, further improving their travelling safety
Is it normal that the car seat’s backrest moves, and there is space between vehicle seat and car seat?
Yes, the backrest is adjustable. Therefore it can adapt perfectly to any vehicle seat. In the event of an accident, the backrest moves slightly forward with your child, and is therefore able to secure the whole body early on.
Is it ok to keep using a car seat after an accident?
We at CYBEX strongly recommend that you replace a car seat after any kind of accident. This is because tiny hairline cracks, which may not be visible to the naked eye, can appear in the plastic parts of a car seat after an accident. These cracks can pose an increased risk to safety.
My car seat is faulty, how can I get it repaired?
Please refer to the retailer where you bought your CYBEX car seat. They will deal with the matter on your behalf.
Where can I get replacement parts for my product?
You can order replacement parts from a specialist retailer near you. To find a store near you, simply go to the store locator on our website: https://cybex-online.com/en-en/retailer
How do I correctly secure my child in the seat?
Please observe the instructions in the User Guide. Adjust the child car seat to the size of your child and make sure that he or she is properly strapped in to ensure maximum safety.
What should I bear in mind when installing the car seat in my vehicle?
Before purchasing the car seat it is important to check if it is approved to be used in your vehicle:
• Vehicle must have an i-Size seat that is compatible with an i-Size child car seat (we advise going to www.cybex-online.com and checking the ‘More info’ section on the product page to find out whether the car seat is compatible with your vehicle)
• Compatibility can also be checked with typelist that can be found attached to your car seat (please do not use any part of this car seat on its own or in combination with boosters, backrests or headrests from other manufacturers or from different CYBEX product lines)
• The car seat can be used only on vehicle seats which are equipped with an automatic 3-point vehicle belt
• For proper protection of your child, it is essential to use and install the car seat according to the instructions given in the User Guide (the User Guide can be found attached to the car seat, or it can be downloaded on www.cybex-online.com)
My child keeps trying to wiggle out of the impact shield. What can I do about this?
As with any other restraint system, a car seat can only fully protect your child if he or she is secured correctly and does not actively try to leave the car seat. Common issues include the opening of belt buckles, the pulling down of shoulder belts on car seats secured by a harness, or the child attempting to wiggle out of a car seat with an impact shield.
Make sure that the impact shield is properly positioned and secured, sitting tightly against your child's body.
Please also consider what clothes your child is wearing while seated in the car seat, as thick clothing reduces the protection offered by the impact shield. Please refer to the User Guide.
If your child attempts to wiggle out of the impact shield please safely stop the vehicle and explain to your child the importance of staying in the car seat. Make it clear that the journey cannot be continued without proper protection.
How do I position the impact shield so that my child is secured properly?
As a general rule, you can secure your child in the safest possible way if you follow these instructions. The impact shield should be positioned so it fits snug against the body without causing discomfort. The impact shield can also be lowered or raised for a comfortable fit on nearly all models. You can tell that the impact shield is in the correct position if it is fully aligned with your child's body. Thick clothing prevents the harness/vehicle belt or impact shield from lying tight against the body. Only a correctly adjusted restraint system can offer maximum protection. For this reason, your child should wear thin, well-fitted clothing. Thick clothing such as winter jackets and clothing with hoods (hoodies, teddy suits, etc.) as well as hats should be avoided. Once your child has been positioned in the seat, he or she can be covered with a blanket for warmth.
What are the main two positions for the reclining headrest?
The patented reclining headrest is a passive safety feature from CYBEX:
• child is awake: the recline angle of the headrest can be set to the upright position.
• child is asleep: the angle of the headrest can be set to the reclined position which prevents the child’s head from tipping forward into a vulnerable position while sleeping
How do I adapt the Pallas G i-Size to secure my child with a 3-point vehicle belt?
To change the Pallas G i-Size to the 3-point vehicle belt configuration you only have to remove the impact shield. The child is then secured by the 3-point vehicle belt. You can convert the Pallas G i-Size after your child exceeds a height of 100 cm. This is not mandatory however, and you can continue to use the Pallas car seat with the impact shield until your child reaches 105 cm in height. However it is obligatory to detach the impact shield once the child has reached 21 kg.
How does the sleeping position work?
The sleeping position is easily adjustable with only one hand, allowing for a more comfortable position for the child. To recline the car seat it is not necessary to open the car belt system or to take the child out of the seat. The relevant lever is conveniently located on the front side of the seat. If the child falls asleep or is about to when they are already in the car seat, just pull the handle and the seat slides down automatically.
Is it okay to install this car seat on the passenger seat?
We generally recommend using the car seat on one of the back seats of the vehicle. Statistically, installing the car seat on the passenger seat poses a higher risk of injury for your child. However, in exceptional cases the car seat may be used on the passenger seat as well. Please note the following: if the car is equipped with an airbag, put the passenger seat as far back as possible. Please ensure that the upper belt point of the 3-point vehicle belt always stays behind the belt routing of the car seat, so that the belt runs backwards and not forwards. To find out whether a specific CYBEX car seat can be installed on the passenger seat, please check the type list included with the car seat. Alternatively, visit our homepage www.cybex-online.com to find out this information.
Will the impact shield make my child feel constrained in the car seat?
The impact shield is not rigid and can be adjusted to give the growing child sufficient freedom of movement while also offering the best protection. It must also be adjusted to take the child's clothing into account (for example during winter, when the child may be wearing thicker clothes).
Is material fatigue an issue because of the long period of time the car seat can be used for?
CYBEX uses high-quality and extremely age-resistant plastics and fabrics in its products to prevent wear and tear. Pallas car seats can be used for over 10 years.
However, nothing lasts forever and over time even the high-quality-plastics we use can display certain age-related changes. Therefore, we strongly recommend that our car seats are not used for longer than the prescribed usage periods.
Can I use a Pallas car seat without the impact shield?
Whether you can use a Pallas car seat without an impact shield depends on the size and weight of your child. For more information, please refer to the User Guide of your Pallas child car seat.
If my car rolls over, will my child fall out of a car seat that is fitted with an impact shield?
No, all car seats approved in compliance with UN R44/04 and UN R129 are subjected to tests, in which the car is rolled in four different directions. This rigorous testing proves that a child cannot fall out of one of our car seats fitted with an impact shield in the event of a rollover.
The ISOFIX System is impossible or very difficult to release from the ISOFIX anchorage points in the vehicle. What can I do?
Sometimes the ISOFIX System may be difficult to release from the anchorage points. Please increase the distance between the car seat and the vehicle seat by releasing the ISOFIX using the adjustment buttons and pulling the car seat away from the vehicle seat. By following these steps, you will release any tension from the System which should help with the de-installation.
How do I install the cup holder?
You can easily install the cup holder by sliding it into one of two slots in the car seat shell, positioned on the side of each armrest. The positions of the slots are indicated by cup holder symbols.
The car seat is approved in compliance with the i-Size standard (UN R129). What does this mean?
i-Size is a European standard for car seats. Among other regulations i-Size states that infants must travel in a rear-facing position before the child's age exceeds 15 months and that, for the first time, side-impact protection is tested. To find out more about i-Size go to https://cybex-online.com/en-en/safetycenter/safety-regulations
Where should I install a car seat in my car?
The safest place for a car seat is in the rear seat behind the front passenger seat. It may be possible to install a CYBEX car seat on other seats in the vehicle. You can find this information in our vehicle Type List which is available either online or along with the product when it is purchased.
How can I clean my car seat?
Car seats can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner or damp cloth. We recommend wiping the area between the seat and base with a damp cloth. Sand or other dirt beneath the cover can also be removed in this way.
Please note that a car seat should never be dismantled for cleaning. Please always refer to your car seat’s user manual when carrying out care and maintenance on your car seat.
Should you wish to clean a car seat more thoroughly than recommended above, you will have to have it cleaned professionally. Please ask the retailer who sold you the car seat to refer you to a professional service.
CYBEX Products Only: Always refer to the User Guide for your specific product for detailed instructions. Newborn inlays have their own User Guide which should be individually referred to. Generally the seat covers are machine washable at a maximum temperature of 30˚C on a delicate cycle. If you wash them at a higher temperature, the cover fabric might lose its color or shrink. Please wash the cover separately and never dry it by machine or in direct sunlight. (Warning: Only the cover of the car seat can be machine washed. The car seat itself is not machine washable.)
To clean the plastic parts of the car seat wipe them with a cloth using a mild detergent and warm water. (Warning: Please do not use chemical detergents or bleaching agents under any circumstances.)
What's the difference between UN R44 and UN R129?
To simplify the process of choosing the right car seat, regulations and norms have been implemented to guarantee general safety standards worldwide:
• In most parts of the world including Europe, the UN R44/04 and UN R129 testing standards are in effect. R44 classifies child restraints (car seats) according to the weight of the child. However, children grow in different ways. For example, a child might be within the weight range of an R44 seat but their head may already be reaching above the top of the seat.
• R129 child restraints are classified according to the height of the child, and also specify a weight limit. This is intended to give parents more confidence that a child restraint will fit a child during a specific growth period.
• The aim of R129 is to make child restraints easier to install, to incorporate side impact testing to provide better protection from side crashes and to keep children in a rear-facing position up until they are at least 15 months old.
• It also aims to make child restraints more compatible with vehicle seats.
What is the Top Tether used for?
The Top Tether serves as an upper anchor point for a child car seat and is usually fixed to an anchorage point accessed via the trunk of the car. This provides extra stabilization for the car seat and prevents rotation in the event of an accident. Installation with the Top Tether is mandatory when the seat is used in the impact shield mode. If you’re unable to find the Top Tether anchor in your car, please refer to your vehicle manual.
When does a car seat expire?
As soon as a car seat is installed in a vehicle, it may be exposed to high temperatures and high levels of light intensity. As a result, even high-quality and extremely age-resistant plastics such as those used by CYBEX can display certain age-related alterations. To ensure the safety of your child, we strongly recommend that the seats are not used for longer than the prescribed usage periods.
A car seat will be designed to keep your child safe for a specific period in their development, for example from birth to approximately 4 years old for a Sirona Series seat. Sometimes they can be used for longer, for example our products for babies and toddlers can also be used for a sibling. To find out the approximate lifespan of your CYBEX car seat, refer to the user manual or contact our Customer Service.
