A clever pushchair on a lightweight aluminium frame: with the pram insert, it’s a cosy and comfortable parent-facing pram for your
newborn to lie flat; without it’s a multi-position forward-facing seat.
There are two ingenious things about this buggy: first is its easy conversion from pram to pushchair – the machine-washable fabric insert
means you don’t need to buy a separate (ie, bulky and expensive) carrycot.
Second is the chassis – once you’ve got the hang of it,
folding and unfolding are simple, smooth operations, though not one-handed, and it locks and is free-standing when folded, making it easy
to carry and store. For a complete travel system, add the award-winning Ventura car seat.
In pram mode, it offers excellent support for your newborn, and the hood and apron offer good all-round protection from the elements.
(We rate the comfort overall as 3/5 but we give it 4/5 in pram-mode.)
The handles are height-adjustable and the front wheels can be
fixed or swivelling. It’s smooth and easy to push, and the sleek lines of the aluminium chassis make it a good-looking buggy.
In pram mode the basket, though deep and lovely, is difficult to access. The seat may prove a little on the snug side for toddlers.
