Nuna PIPA Lite RX Infant Car Seat and RELX Base
The Nuna PIPA Lite RX offers everything parents want in a car seat, combining the best aspects of all PIPA models while adding exclusive new features, too.
Featuring magnetic harness holders, a height-adjustable headrest and a no-rethread harness for easier adjustments, the Nuna PIPA Lite RX is the only model in Nuna's PIPA Lite series that can be installed without the base for travel and taxis.
The Nuna PIPA Lite RX includes the Dream Drape, a unique magnetic cover to protect your baby from the elements, along with a ventilated peek-a-boo window, leatherette handle, and natural merino wool blend fabrics that are more breathable and moisture-wicking than synthetic fibers.
Despite its 6.9-pound weight, the PIPA Lite RX doesn't skimp on safety. Unlike most car seats made with non-flexible foam, the PIPA Lite RX is made with aerospace aluminum and Aeroflex foam that compresses to absorb forces in a crash.
Pronounced like "relax," the innovative RELX base solves common installation problems by allowing you to customize the fit of your car seat for both your baby and your vehicle. The base of the Nuna PIPA Lite RX offers four recline positions, allowing your baby to sit in a more upright position that adds comfort as they grow.
A steel load leg minimizes forward rotation by as much as 90%, while an anti-rebound panel reduces rearward motion. Steel-reinforced rigid LATCH connectors extend to four positions, creating a tighter fit against your vehicle seat while aiding installation in a wider variety of cars.
