Stand Out Features of this Car Seat

Anti-rebound Bar

The base of the Baby Jogger City Go 2 infant car seat has an anti-rebound bar (ARB) built into it. The anti-rebound bar is an added safety feature for rear-facing that can reduce the secondary movement of the car seat, called rebound, during a crash. When a collision occurs, the car seat will move forward, towards the front of the vehicle, and rotate downward. And as we all know from high school physics, every action has an equal and opposite reaction — so after that initial movement, the car seat will rebound, or “bounce back” towards the backrest of the vehicle seat. The ARB minimizes this bounce-back effect, helping limit the car seat movement and your child inside it! ARBs may also limit the side-to-side rotation of the car seat in a side-impact collision. Overall, it’s a great feature on a rear-facing car seat!

European baseless routing

This seat can be installed baseless with European or American/Standard belt routing. You can find a video showing both of those methods here. The European routing method is preferred! Baby Jogger refers to this as the taxi-safe belt path. European belt routing means the shoulder belt portion of the seat belt is routed behind the shell of the rear-facing seat, limiting its ability to rotate down in a frontal crash. This routing functions similarly to a load leg. Pretty cool, huh?!

Lock-off

The RapidLock lock-off helps you get a tight installation. This is especially nice in the center seating position of most vehicles, as lower anchors are not an option generally. This would also allow you to use the seat in vehicles made before 1996, which would not have locking seat belts. Or in international vehicles, which would also have non-locking seat belts.

Seat is good for you if 

hearts-suit

You need to fit 3 across.

This seat is only 17.5″ wide and it has a seat belt lock-off, which makes it a good choice in a 3 across configuration. The lock-off helps you get a tight, secure installation, even if you need to move the base closer to the door in order to fit another seat beside it.

hearts-suit

You want a car seat that’s easy to install.

The RapidLock mechanism makes proper installation on this seat with the vehicle seat belt easy and fast. You open the RapidLock arm, thread the seat belt underneath it, tighten it up, and then close the arm. Check for 1″ of movement and make any adjustment as needed.

Use caution if

c-warning

You have a small back seat.

This car seat takes up a good bit of space front-to-back when it’s installed in the car. It won’t be the best choice for small backseats or for tall front-seat passengers. You can find better options here.

Airplane Use

The Baby Jogger City Go 2 infant car seat is a recommended choice for both domestic and international travel as it is FAA-approved. When traveling within the United States and Canada, installing the seat without the base is a breeze, as the seat belts in these countries have locking mechanisms that ensure a secure fit. For international travel, it is recommended to pack the base in your luggage and utilize its seat belt lock-off or lower anchors for installation because, typically, seat belts in other countries will not lock. If you choose not to travel with the base, you will need to contact the manufacturer for a locking clip and learn how to use it before you travel.

SITS Bottom Line

In summary, the Baby Jogger City Go 2 infant car seat offers easy installation with its RapidLock mechanism, making it ideal for those who value convenience. Its narrow width and seat belt lock-off make it suitable for fitting three car seats across. However, it may not be the best choice for small back seats or tall front passengers. Notable features include an anti-rebound bar for added safety and a seat belt lock-off for secure installation.
