Over 90% of parents think their child is riding safely in their car seat, but statistics show that 3 out of 4
car seats are installed incorrectly (Source: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). An industry first, UPPAbaby’s SMARTSecure™ system provides parents with visual confirmation that the seat is correctly installed.

Auto-retracting LATCH

MESA’s unique retracting LATCH connectors tighten effortlessly, minimizing installation error.

Tightness Indicator

It’s as easy as red to green. When our tightness indicator turns green, it provides confirmation that the seat is installed correctly. Our way of taking a bit of the guesswork out of parenting.

Adjustable headrest with
Side Impact Protection

MESA’s innovative integrated five-point harness and headrest is adjustable from the front, making it easy to adjust as your child grows. MESA’s headrest is engineered with the latest in Side Impact Protection, providing additional protection against head trauma.

EPS foam-constructed wings distribute crash forces, minimizing side-to-side head movement and preventing contact with a car's window or door.

Optimized for preemies 4lb+

Low harness position setting

MESA’s adjustable harness and crotch strap settings allow it to securely fit infants as small as 4 pounds. As your baby grows,
MESA adjusts – accommodating babies as large as 35 pounds.

Included infant insert

MESA’s infant insert is ideal when your baby is between 4 and 8 pounds. The insert’s built-in wedge creates a flatter and safer riding position for preemies and small newborns.

European-style belt routing path

When you’re traveling in taxis, rental cars or other people’s cars, MESA’s European-style belt routing path, combined with a lap belt installation, makes installing the carrier without a base safe and secure. When used properly, the European-style belt routing path prevents the carrier from moving off the vehicle seat and rotating.
