Along with the new name, Diono plans to roll out several updates to the formerly Sunshine Kids car seats. Among the biggest news: the Radian will now work from birth to belt-positioning booster, enabling parents to remove the five-point harness for older kids. The Radian will work up to 120 pounds in belt-positioning mode. Watch for the new Radians to debut in fall (November). We hear there will be three new models: the Radian R100, Radian R120 and Radian RXT, replacing the 65, 80 and XTSL respectively.
It appears Diono is working on a new web site here. We’ll meet with the folks from Diono/Sunshine Kids next month and will update our review in the car seat section shortly!
