Specially recommended by health officials for long journeys due to its unique 180° lie flat feature.
Introducing the Matrix Light 2 - the world's safest and healthiest convertible carrycot and car seat. This multi award-winning car seat is specially recommended by health officials for long journeys in the car and on the pram.
Its unique 180° lie flat feature means your baby has no time limits in the car seat, unlike other car seats that may only recline. Experience the ultimate in safety, versatility, and unrestricted comfort with the Matrix Light 2.
The comfort and safety of travelling sitting up or stretched out.
You choose the best position for your baby.
The infant car seat that turns into a carrycot
This means that if your baby is sleeping in the Jané Matrix Light in the house he can be safely moved to the car, taken to the shops, and brought back home again without ever having to be moved or disturbed from sleep. It also delivers great value for money as it can be used 24/7 - for overnight sleeping when used with a mattress, just like a conventional carrycot, and for naps during the day, yet converts effortlessly into a car seat when required - giving you the best of both worlds at a fraction of the price of a separate carrycot and car seat.
Multi-award winning innovative car seat.

We have been using this car seat since my son was born in December. It’s brilliant. Other mums have asked me how I found it as they’ve never seen anything like it. One simple click of the 2 buttons and it’s out of the isofix base and onto the pram chassis (we have the Janè Epic) and vice versa. It’s safe and spacious. My son loves it when it’s used as a pram, he can move but also feels secure and doesn’t roll around a big bassinet like other traditional prams, but is also not crammed into an awful tiny car seat stuck on a chassis, which is so dangerous. Once he is old enough we will sit it up a notch on the pram base so he can see a little more, before he graduates this seat and moves to the epic pushchair. The isofix base is also 360 degrees and the matrix has airbags. It has everything you want from a child seat, it’s absolutely excellent, easy and essential. The only thing is if you don’t have a big car (I drive a Land Rover discovery sport) then the seat will take up the majority of the back seats. In my car the 3rd seat is still free for other passengers. That said, even if you use it in the upright position as a car seat from birth, the transition to the pram chassis and into a bassinet is effortless.
Everything about this car seat has been said and written, I love the fact that I could purchase adapters for bugaboo cam and could get rid of other car seats and carry cots.
One negative feature for me though. when I'm in the car on my own and child is in the back and falls asleep I can turn him and put him flat (when waiting at the traffic lights for example) but I can not put the hood down hence cant see him.
But whoever thought about this car seat and the base should get a pay rise
I have this car seat for my son and can honestly say it's the best thing I've ever bought! Made life so much easier and knowing they can lie down whilst doing the school runs instead of been stuck in the standard car seats is such a relief. Too many people use car seats as a pushchair for their babies and don't know the risks it does to the spine and hips and also the risk of their breathing. I think all babies car seats should be made like this as standard.
Are Jane interchangeable eg can a crosswalk seat go on a trider base?
Johnston Prams Replies:
No, Each pushchair seat unit is designed for their particular chassis. This is so they can fold with the chassis and are also stable, as some chassis and pushchair on the Jane range are higher off the ground than others.
The Jane car seats can go on different jane chassis or pushchair, but not the pushchair seat units.
hope this helps.

Do you need adapters to connect the matrix light 2 to the kendo frame?
Johnston Prams Replies:
No you don't need adaptors for the Matrix to fit onto the Kendo chassis.
They both have a built-in system called PRO-FIX, which allows them to connect without adaptors.

Is there a limit on age/ size for the lie flat position? We would like to use for our 1year old to lie flat on long journeys.
Johnston Prams Replies:
The lie flat position (when used in the car) is for GROUP 0, which is baby's from 0-10 kg in weight, approx. birth to 12/15 months.
It can be used longer when in the upright position; which is GROUP 0+ from 0-13kg, approx. birth to 18 months.
Hope this info helps.
