Baby Trend EZ Ride Travel System Review
Designed for comfort and safety, the Baby Trend EZ Ride travel system offers a comfortable way to take your little one on the go. It includes a padded seat with multiple recline positions, a covered parent tray with two deep cup holders and a height-adjustable handle with peek-a-boo window on the canopy.
The EZ Ride also stands out from the rest of the pack for its unique LATCH connectors, which are easier to get on and off than other styles. It also has a useful level on the carrier’s side and the ability to adjust the recline with its button at the bottom of the base, which is nicely placed and easy to use.
The Baby Trend EZ Ride is a budget-friendly infant car seat that complies with FMVSS 213 and was found to be average when we tested it for crash-test performance. It scored lower than average for head impact protection but did better for chest sensors.
Installation and convenience
While the EZ Ride did not fare as well in our tests, it is easy to install and has some nice features for convenience like storage for your user manual on the carrier’s bottom. The carrier itself is lightweight and easy to maneuver, and the handle is a nice design with an interesting shaped grip.
Most importantly, it’s a safe, high-quality infant seat that meets federal safety standards. It’s available for around $100, and it comes with an included rain cover to keep your little one dry.
