Sporty, compact and dynamic are the three adjectives that define the new Epic from Jané. Its urban and pioneering design stands out because of its tubular chassis that gives it a hardwearing and innovative character.
Additionally, Epic offers extraordinary versatility: hardwearing PU tyres with shock absorbing properties; independent, long travel suspension on the rear wheels; excellent manoeuvrability thanks to the balanced front wheel set giving smooth, precise turning, a double brake lock and more compact folding with the detachable and reversible seat unit.
Converts into an i-Size Travel System
Complete with the new iMATRIX from Jané, the new i-Size (R129) version of the popular Matrix. It is designed to protect your baby in the car and is suitable for use by children with a height of between 40 and 83 cm which is from birth to 15 months approx.
It is now even lighter than previous Matrix versions, reducing its previous weight of 6 kg down to just 4.6 kg, that's more than 20% lighter!
iMATRIX has been designed to be installed in the car together with the iPLATFORM from Jané. Always in the rear facing position, this base uses ultra-quick connectors with Pro-fix locking. Anchored to the car with Isofix and a front anti-rotation leg for complete safety and reliability. This is the safest installation system, as it prevents any installation errors that could affect safety.

THE I-SIZE INFANT CAR SEAT THAT TURNS INTO A CARRYCOT
The iMatrix is fitted with the “Pro-Fix” system, which means that with just one movement, it can be fitted onto your Jané chassis to make a travel system.
When used on the pram chassis or separately as a carrycot it can be fully reclined to be used in the healthier 180° Lie-Flat position which is recommended by health officials. It can also be used for overnight sleeping when used with a mattress.
When in the car the Pro-fix locking allows for ultra-quick installation in the car in the sitting-up position, on the Isofix base which is included.
Newborn babies should ideally lie completely flat, as recommended by health officials. This position unlike conventional infant car seats doesn’t have any time restrictions a newborn can travel in it. It also facilitates newborn respiration, nurtures the abdomen and aids optimal spinal development. The Jané iMatrix i-Size innovative design recognises these important requirements and allows baby to travel in the lie-flat position on the pram chassis or as a carrycot. In the car, the iMATRIX has been designed to be installed together with the Isofix iPLATFORM base and always in the rear facing, sitting-up position,

Removable and washable upholstery.

And finally, iSize means more peace of mind. Not all current child car seats fit all car models securely. However, all iSize car seats do fit all cars equipped with the ISOFIX system.
NOTE: iMatrix i-Size / Matrix Light 2 main differences.
As the iMatrix is an i-Size car seat it means, like all i-size car seats, that it uses the ISOFIX system and not seat belts to install into your car. Also the lie-flat functionality is limited to the pram and carrycot modes, and not available in the car. If you wish to have the option of seat belt installation and the lie-flat position when in the car, then you would need to look at the MATRIX LIGHT 2 version travel systems.
