Comparison between Axkid One / One+ and One 2 / One 2+
The One 2 / One 2+ versions are improvements on the One / One+ versions, with additional features and design enhancements. The main difference is in the gearboxes. The reducers in the One 2 / One 2+ versions are more enveloping and modular. The foams in the birth reducer are also removable to adapt to the baby's growth.
The second-age reducer is articulated, making it easier to handle without the risk of damaging it. It has been cut out at the buckle so that it can be easily removed and replaced. This makes it easier to adapt the seat to your child's size as they grow.
Axkid has also modified the buttons for adjusting the height of the headrest on the One 2 / One 2+ versions. The buttons no longer pinch at the sides, but at the top and bottom, making it easier to adjust the height of the headrest.
However, despite these improvements, the One / One+ versions remain excellent choices for parents looking for a high-quality extended rear-facing car seat. In terms of price, the Axkid One 2 / One 2+ versions are slightly more expensive than the One / One+ versions. However, the extra cost can be justified by the extra features and design improvements of the seats.

Sliding seat technology is a distinctive feature of Axkid One car seats. This feature, now found on the BeSafe Stretch, means that the seat is mounted on rails so that it can slide back and forth with one hand over a length of 30 cm. This feature offers the best possible legroom, ensuring optimum comfort for the child, even on long journeys.
In practice, this technology is particularly useful in a number of situations. For example, if you need more space at the front of the vehicle, you can easily slide the seat backwards. This can be particularly useful in smaller cars where space is limited. What's more, as your child grows and needs more legroom, you can adjust the seat to provide more comfort.
Finally, this feature can also make it easier to install and remove the child from the seat, as you can slide the seat forward for better access and then slide it back once the child is installed. This sliding seat technology offers great flexibility for both parents and children.
Comfort is an essential aspect of Axkid One car seats. As well as offering generous legroom, another notable advantage of these models is the reclining backrest. Thanks to a knob on the front of the seat, you can fine-tune the angle of the backrest. This allows you to adapt the position of the seat to your child's morphology and needs, whether for a peaceful sleep or a more upright position when awake.
Axkid One car seats are particularly renowned for their safety. A key element of this safety is the fact that Axkid One seats allow extended rear-facing travel up to the age of 7. This travel position is widely recognised as the safest in the event of an accident. It distributes forces more evenly across the child's body in the event of a frontal impact, providing optimum protection for the neck and spine.
The Axkid One and Axkid One+ models have also undergone rigorous ADAC testing, with excellent results. Although only the Axkid One and Axkid One+ models were subjected to the ADAC crash testsThe entire Axkid One range is Plus Test certified. This Swedish certification, reputed to be the most demanding in the world to obtain, guarantees maximum safety for Axkid One car seats.
