The seat faces either direction – that’s not always the case with lightweights. It’s easy to fold and unfold, and is free-standing when stored. Front and rear suspension make it highly manoeuvrable, although it performs best on even terrain. The frame is also car seat/carrycot compatible.
Tested by Zoe Lester, 24, mum to Isla, six months. She says:
The seat feels too low down, so Isla’s facing my legs, but I love the handy storage compartment and the brilliantly positioned brake. Overall, this is sleek, elegant and sturdy. It’s also really compact when folded – perfect for my car boot. Plus, it has an ingenious pull-along feature, so you can carry both baby and pushchair up a flight of stairs easily.
Tested by Lizi Brown, 39, mum to Beatrice, 12 months. She says:
This pushchair suits our needs best. I love the matching footmuff, secret compartment for the raincover (which appeals to my underlying desire to be a secret agent!), and the extendable handle, which is essential if you’re tall. It’s light and easy to lift, although not as compact as others when folded. I also found it a little bulky on public transport.
Tested by Amanda Hemmings, 43, mum to Calleigh, 18 months. She says:
So compact yet robust – it’ll last for ages. I love the way it folds and rolls like a wheelie suitcase. It handles really well, even in narrow shop doorways, and the shopping basket holds so much stuff that I struggled to get it all out again!
