Beginning on September 1st, 2018, we will be instituting a rolling change to the internal seat frame of our GO-ES seat. This change is to rigid seats only and does not affect flip or foldaway seats. We are making this change for several reasons:
- Reduce weight. The new frame will be lighter by 1.4 lbs.
- Offset costs. There have been increases in the cost of steel, tubing and fabricated parts.
- Ability to customize. The new frame allows a CRS 225 Kit to be a bolt-on option with the ability to add “in the field.”
The new GO-ES will have a very slight visible difference from the current version due to the newly designed back cover.
The seat has been extensively tested in our A2LA accredited test lab and has complied with all applicable standards and requirements. As a result of the seat decreasing in weight, the load calculated for FMVSS 207 has decreased. Test reports showing the above are available upon request. Any questions you may have about testing or to request a copy of the tests performed, can be sent to Dave Klopp at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, and as always, please contact your Freedman Seating representative if you have any questions.
