The radian can be reclined as far as 45* from vertical when rear facing. If the angle in your car is naturally more upright than that (while using the rear facing boot), you can use the top tether (which is approved for use when rear facing, unusual for convertible seats, but okay with Radians) to pull the seat to a more reclined angle. (Note for readers with Britax convertibles: Britax also allows top tethering when rear facing, however they do NOT allow you to adjust the recline angle using the top tether.)
oh yha! i forgot about the top tethering adjustment when rf in a radian. op if u do decided to do that plz read the carseat manuall 1st since they only allow u to attach it a permanent part of the vehicle & it has to b done a certain way. i forgot exactly what is/isnt allowed & i never had to use it rfing. sorry im no help there.
