First-Class functionalities

Back height

The backrest can be continuously adjusted in height by 24 cm / 9.45" allowing it to be adapted to the child's growth at any time. The head is held in an optimal position by the continuously and individually adjustable headrest.

The large selection of accessories that grow with the product allows for a long service life.

Leg guide

Narrow and wide users with seat width from 29 to 38 cm / 11.42 to 14.96" sit well supported at all times. The pelvic and leg guides that grow with the child – individually adjustable for each side.

Side impact protectors

The Side impact protectors offer particularly good side impact protection – they absorb the forces in the best possible way, especially in the head and shoulder area. Tested in accordance with the safety standard FMVSS 213.

Always one step ahead in terms of safety

Hercules Small offers top-tier safety

The Hercules Small offers top-tier safety, having been thoroughly tested to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213, including the side impact protectors. By meeting these standards, the Hercules Small ensures that it provides robust defense against the forces encountered in side-impact collisions. This commitment to safety means that the car seat not only meets but often exceeds the necessary criteria to protect your child during travel, offering reassurance to parents about their child’s safety in the vehicle.

Large becomes handy
ONLY 21.7 x 9.1 x 23.6" / 55 x 23 x 60 cm

With just a few movements of the wrist, the new Hercules Small special needs booster folds into a slim, easy-to-handle format. This not only simplifies assembly in the car, but also ensures that the seat can be easily transported and stored in a space-saving manner even in limited trunk capacity.

Hercules Small: swivel and tilt function

With the swivel function, the Hercules Small can be turned towards the passenger side vehicle door. This makes it easier to get in and out of the Hercules Small booster seat. To turn the Hercules Small, press the red trigger and turn the seat towards the open vehicle door.

The tilt function makes it easier to position the child optimally if control of the upper body or head is restricted. The tilt function makes it possible to tilt Hercules Small backwards in 2.5° increments up to 10°.
