A parent-facing travel stroller that oculd handle all-terrain

Tamara • 01 Jul 2023


I’m looking for a travel stroller for my 5months old daughter. I don’t necessarily need a bassinet but I would like the seat to be able to face me. A plus would be if it were good on all terrain. I don’t absolutely need it to be carry-on but compact and light enough for traveling.

Hey, Tamara,

Well, if it's light, it will never be totally all-errain capable. Lower weight makes for a flimsier chassis and can be prone to getting loose. And a parent-facing seat makes it even harder on this - that feature itself adds to weight quite considerably, and a light reversible pushchair already will have to be stripped down of a lot, especially terrain-capability-wise.

Personally, I will recommend the Cybex Eezy S-Twist+² which is compact and reversible but simple, while having a tad larger wheels. I think that could be your best bet for traveling with a parent-facing pushchair which doesn't have tiny wheels.

I would, otherwise, recommend the Cybex Mios which has small wheels but is sturdy but light, and reversible as well. Or just looking at non-reversible strollers that will offer more space/wheel options with a lower weight.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
