Cybex Mios 3: A light stroller that can handle different terrains - Cybex Mios vs. Bugaboo Dragonfly

Raj • 10 Jun 2023


I am looking for a stroller that is light but can handle different terrains when I go for walks in my local park - I am between the Mios and the Bugaboo Dragonfly - please help! Also any other compact strollers for all terrain suggestions are welcome!

Hey, Raj,

Nor Mios, nor Dragonfly are all-terrain - and there is no stroller this light or compact that will actually be all-terrain.

That being said, and also counting on the wheels being small and not chunky for big bumps or holes in the sidewalks, I did use the Mios on grass and bumps rather regularly, and when taking the wheels size into consideration, I was actually very happy with the suspension and the build, sturdiness of the frame. So if you really need something this small while reclinable and for bumpy roads, the Mios is good enough, but again, you HAVE TO count on the small wheels being just that- small, so you will need to lift them over large bumps or holes.

The Dragonfly is super light and just as non-terrain-capable, personally I would not take that one for anything more than lighter urban use, the front wheels are a tad thin and also not that sprung. It is a nice model but I don't find it suitable for terrain much (or at all).

You can also look at the Cybex Eezy S-Twist+² because or the wheel size - or go for larger wheeled, forward-facing-only pushchairs like the Oyster Zero Gravity (still not an all-terrainbeast though, the low weight is simply not for all terrain much).

Your -very berry- Eli.

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