World First

The world’s safest, healthiest all-in-one carrycot and car seat.

The award winning Group 0/0+ MATRIX LIGHT 2 from JANÉ is a revolutionary multi-functional infant car seat that turns into a carrycot. It’s the world’s safest, healthiest all-in-one carrycot and car seat.
The evolution of the award-winning MATRIX, it is the only infant car seat on the market (patented) that offers the option of safely travelling with your baby in the sitting up or lying down position in the car, especially recommended by health officials for long journeys.

Jané Matrix Light 2 Line up

Medical studies published on the medical website Pediatrics state that keeping a new-born baby in an upright position for long periods of time lowers the amount of oxygen in its blood. A new-born baby’s reflex to keep its head held up is not fully developed, meaning the head flops down and restricts the airways. Doctors say that this is good enough reason not to use an infant car seat for anything other than travel.

A car seat such as the award-winning MATRIX LIGHT 2, which can be used as a lie-flat or sitting up infant car seat in the car, helps new-born respiration, nurtures the abdomen and aids spinal development.

The Matrix system has won a raft of prestigious industry awards. Its patented Isofix system: the Matrix Platform, is also a world first. Meaning that it is extremely safe and parents can now lock and unlock the Matrix from the isofix base with just one movement. It’s the healthiest way for a baby to travel - especially on long journeys.

The MATRIX LIGHT 2 car seat is available to coordinate with the complete Jané Range of pushchairs using its Pro-Fix system.



Jané understands that you will be taking your baby in and out of the car and pram on a regular basis and that this process needs to be easy, yet reassuringly safe. The Matrix Light 2 simply clicks on and off the Matrix Platform in the car and will click on to the chassis of a Jané pram in seconds, simply ‘Click & Go’.

The Matrix Platform ISOFIX base - Turns Matrix into the world's first carrycot with ISOFIX.

The Matrix Platform is the first of its kind in the world. It will allow the Matrix Light 2 car seat to be used in the conventional sitting up rearward facing position and also rotate for its unique lie-flat carrycot position which is recommend by baby health officials, especially for long journeys.

Jane Crash Test Research Centre


Jane Crash Test Research Centre

The Jané Crash Test Research Centre was built in 2003 when, as a result of our commitment to child safety, we decided to create our own crash test tunnel where we could test our seats to the limit to achieve a level of safety that goes beyond the legal requirements.
All the Jané seats are created in the JANÉ CRASH TEST RESEARCH CENTER, the only private crash tunnel in Spain for researching child safety.

As it is at our factory in Palau-Solità i Plegamans (Barcelona), we can use the Crash Test as much as is necessary (and then some more). And that's how we can offer you the most tested seats on the market with the strictest certification of Europe.

Crash Test

Our car seats can be tested up to 250 times before being put on the market.
We stage crashes equivalent to 85 km/h (53 mph) in the car - much higher than the European Safety Regulations of 30 mph or ADAC crash tests at 40 mph.
Jané  Matrix Light 2 meets and exceeds the ECE R44.04 Safety Standard, for 2 positions approved for vehicles: (1) Flat position 180°, ideal rest for baby in the first months of life. (2) Sitting position 138°. European Safety Approval: ECE R44.04 Universal classification.
