The New Lightweight Pushchair Like No Other

Section: Shopping Ideas

Silver Cross have launched a completely new lightweight stroller that could make your life easier

Cue excitement. We went to the unveiling of a new pushchair that’s like no other on the market. Silver Cross’s latest addition to their stroller range – the Reflex is a completely new umbrella fold buggy. What's new? It's the only one that converts to a pram too.

Basically, you get the best of both worlds. It has all the functions of a traditional lightweight pushchair, with nippy steering and a compact fold but with the advantage that it can be transformed into a pram system by adding the newborn accessory pack –a first for this type of stroller. We don’t think it’s going to replace traditional carrycot prams, but it is a flexible alternative if you want something smaller and more lightweight. By adding the Simplicity infant carrier it can form a travel system, too. Just a shame that you can’t fit other brands of car seat too.

Clever features include the LED lighting system a great safety feature for the dark winter months

Clever features include the LED lighting system, which is a great safety feature for the dark winter months and is fully waterproof.  The Reflex also boasts a sturdy bumper bar that folds with the stroller, a multi position seat that can lie completely flat, which is ideal for newborns, and a fully extendable hood with UPF 50+ protection. And your baby won’t miss out on a bit of luxe, the seat is deeply padded, as are the harness pads and apron. These features are reflected in the price though. At £250 (plus £75 for the newborn pack) the Reflex is at the pricier end of the lightweight pushchair market.

Available exclusively at John Lewis from early March, the Reflex costs £250 plus £75 for the newborn pack. The Simplicity car seat is £130.
