Orbit Baby Infant System
The Orbit Baby Infant System is turning heads as one of the newest and hippest high-end infant travel systems on the market. Orbit Baby is a California-based company that prides itself in creating smart, sophisticated travel solutions for modern parents. The Orbit Infant System is a three-piece kit that includes a base, infant car seat, and stroller. Unlike traditional infant travel systems, the Orbit Infant System's unique docking technology, SmartHub, allows for easy interchange with Orbit Baby accessories, such as the bassinet and rocker, as well as future Orbit seats to create a multifaceted travel and comfort system for your growing child. Plus, the Orbit Baby Infant System features thoughtful, impressive engineering designed with one thing in mind-making your life as a new parent easier.
The Orbit Baby stay-in-the-car infant seat base is touted as the easiest, quickest base to safely install. The base's patent-pending StrongArm technology allows a secure installation in 60 seconds or less by simply clicking the LATCH connectors and turning the StrongArm knob to tighten the straps. Orbit Baby's patent-pending SmartHub is the key to the system's interconnectivity and lets you easily dock the Orbit infant car seat from almost any angle. This new ergonomic technology is kinder on your back while making boarding less stressful for your little passenger by avoiding unnecessary car seat jostling. The SmartHub docking mechanism is bolstered with a resilient stainless steel ring for strength and safety, and the base's full metal chassis and aero-space aluminum backbone lend increased durability and stability. The Orbit Baby infant seat base includes an integrated seat pad to protect your vehicle's interior. Additional Orbit Baby Car Seat Bases may be purchased to simplify the transition between multiple vehicles.
The Orbit Baby infant car seat is the common "plug-in" for the three-in-one infant system and can be moved nearly effortlessly from the base to the stroller. Thanks to the SmartHub technology, Orbit is the only infant car seat that ergonomically rotates for simple docking and undocking in both the car seat and stroller modes. For airplane and cab use, the infant car seat is also certified for use without the base. The Orbit Baby infant car seat meets all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and is rated to support a baby up to 22 pounds and 29 inches long. For maximum energy absorption, the seat is fully lined with EPP foam, a next-generation material that is softer and more durable than other types of foam. The seat's deep cradle design provides extensive side-impact protection for a safe and snug ride. In addition to its safety features, the Orbit Baby infant car seat includes several smart, convenient innovations. The seat's machine-washable micro-fiber upholstery is one of the easiest to remove of any car seat fabric we've seen. The patent-pending design allows parents to simply detach the fabric without unthreading the harness. Other clever innovations include the seat's soft, adjustable carry handle and unique ballistic nylon skin that offers protection and carrying comfort similar to the look and feel of high-end luggage. The seat also features an exclusive sunshade extension that provides extra "paparazzi" coverage, letting your little one snooze undisturbed and fully protected from the sun. The Orbit All Season Weather Pack, available as an accessory, shields your baby from rain and insects.
The third member of the Orbit Baby Infant System is Orbit's modern and lightweight stroller. As is the case with the Orbit base, SmartHub allows the infant car seat to dock to the stroller from any angle, and with 360 degree rotation baby can face rear, forward, or sideways to view the world from different perspectives. The aerospace-grade aluminum tubing and frame is both strong and lightweight and, when coupled with the unique front suspension and rear pneumatic tires, makes the Orbit stroller one of the most nimble strollers around. Because parents are often short on both time and free hands, the Orbit Baby stroller offers a true one-hand fold via a simple twist and lift mechanism. With an efficient, 3-D design, the folded Orbit stroller measures 31" L x 12.5" W x 12" H and will easily fit in the trunk of any compact car. The Orbit Baby stroller also features a removable cargo pod that holds 6.75 gallons and is easier to reach than traditional stroller underseat storage compartments. Two drink holders, a safety lanyard, and telescoping height-adjustable handles round out the Orbit stroller's sleek yet convenient offerings.
Because Orbit Baby products are designed with the same interchangeable SmartHub technology, you can continue to use the base and stroller with future Orbit seats and accessories as your child grows. The Orbit Toddler Stroller Seat turns the Orbit stroller into a fully loaded luxury ride for your toddler up to 40 pounds. Like the Orbit infant seat, the Toddler Seat can rotate 360 degrees to give your child a change of scenery. The seat's removable, machine-washable upholstery pad is sure to keep your little tike comfortable in any climate, with a reversible cool aero-mesh for summer strolls and warm micro-fiber for winter outings. The Toddler Stroller Seat also includes comfort shoulder pads, mosquito net and rainshield, removable support bar, snack pouch, one-hand full recline for easy napping, and a hidden sunshade extension that blocks nearly 100% of UVA and UVB rays. The seat features a compact fold and handy carry tote for easy transport. For an added splash of color, the Orbit Toddler Stroller Seat Accessory Pack includes extra seat fabric, shoulder pads, and snack pouch available in three vibrant colors.
Another super-smart Orbit accessory is the Orbit Bassinet Cradle, which features a Bassinet that can be docked onto the included Rocker to create a modern cradle or onto the Orbit stroller to form an eye-catching pram to take the tiniest of newborns for a walk in comfort and safety. The Bassinet includes many of the advanced features of the other Orbit products, such as a reversible mattress perfect for any climate, exclusive paparazzi shield, and soft carrier handle. The Bassinet also makes a handy travel bed and collapses to less than six inches thick for compact transport. The Orbit Rocker, which is also available separately, can easily dock the bassinet or any Orbit seat to keep your sleeping baby comfortable and content. The Orbit Baby SmartHub rotation allows rocking from side-to-side or front-to-rear, and at a light 3.5 pounds and flat fold, the Rocker is a perfect travel companion.
With its smart design, modern appeal, and high-end finish, the Orbit Baby Infant System is a force to be reckoned with in the premium infant travel system market. The system won the 2007 iParenting Media Award for Best Product and has been recognized by a host of pregnancy and parenting magazines for its innovation and unique look. BabyEarth.com carries the Orbit Baby Infant System in two chic fashions: black/slate and mocha/khaki.
