A travel system around 50cm wide, compatible with a car seat that reclines

Alison • 24 Jun 2023

Hi Eli,

I’m looking for a travel system that’s around 50cm wide and I would like a compatible car seat that reclines flat. I’ve searched online but couldn’t find any resources that allowed me to filter by width. I know that the Cybex Mios and Peg-Perego Veloce Vivace offer this, but was wondering whether you knew of any others.

Thank you 🙏🏻

Hey, Alison,

If by travel system and the examples you wrote you mean something full-featured = compatibility with a car seat but also a reversible seat and so on, the Mios, form my point of view, is one of the best choices in this category. It is more spacious than others, has a sturdier frame with suspension, and overall is very well made and nicd to push. Just my two cents there - the Veloce/Vivace are not, by far, as nice to push, and I cannot guarantee the right adapters are available in your country to pir those up with a reclinable car seat.

Apart from these, there's the Silver Cross Spirit that is 51.5cm wide, however it is, features-wise similar to Mios but definitely not superior (and also much less roomy). The ABC Design Limbo is another super narrow option (48.5 cm) however it is also much less spacious and a bit basic. Lastly, there's Recaro Lexa Elite but that is much more meant to travel and should be taken for such.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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