Clek introduced the Clek Fllo in 2014, which reaches a broader audience at a more affordable price. The little sister to the Foonf, the grand poo-bah of car seats, the Fllo still has many of the amazing qualities that set Clek seats apart from the rest. Please see the full video review of the 2015 model below:
1. An anti-rebound bar
The Foonf and the Fllo both come with an anti-rebound bar for use in the rear-facing position. This is extremely hard to come by in convertible car seats in America (but is par for the course in Canada – go figure). The anti-rebound bar will prevent the head of the seat from flipping up and hitting the back of the seat of the car (what’s called “rebounding” in car seat mechanics) in a frontal or rear-impact collision.
2. Forever rear-facing
Clek seats make it sexy to rear-face forever, with extra tall seats that don’t eat into all of your precious leg room in the front seat. Not only does it have a 50-lb rear-facing weight limit, but the rear-facing shell height measurement is 26.5″, one of the tallest (if not THE tallest) on the market.
3. Amazing fabrics
This is a stylish seat, and the fabrics are top notch. They use Crypton Super Fabrics, which provide permanent protection against stains, moisture, and odor-causing bacteria. What’s more, they are one of the few car seats that is GreenGuard certified, and are free of brominated and chlorinated flame retardants.
4. Fits 3-across!
At 17″ wide, Clek seats are the narrowest on the market. Fitting 3-across means so much more to me than being able to fit 3 car seats in the back — it means we don’t have to drive minivans (or giant gas-guzzling SUVs) in order to fit a 3rd adult (or child’s friend) back there. This is huge for me, as I am currently on a mission to downsize from the ridiculous minivan that I drive (don’t get me started). With 2 Cleks for the girls, I am able to fit a 3rd person (or an extra car seat or booster seat) in the backseat of a midsize car. That’s a huge win.
Yes, people, these seats might be expensive, but they’re a lot cheaper than buying a large, ridiculous gas-guzzler!!
The big difference between the Foonf and the Fllo is that the Foonf has rigid LATCH connectors in the forward-facing position, which makes for a stupid-easy installation, whereas the Fllo has regular LATCH connectors.
Free yourself from the shackles of a minivan with the Clek Foonf and Fllo. They are super stylish, very tall, environmentally friendly, and extremely safe. Thank you to Clek for sending me this sample. I’m in love <3.
