Which affordable stroller for all-terrain use:Joie Versatrax, Finiti, Cybex Balios S Lux, Maxi-Cosi Adorra 2?

Which is best • 24 Jun 2021

Hi, what is the best stroller for a bit harsh terrain in a village? It has to have a reversible seat and not be too expensive.

We have been looking at Joie Versatrax, Finiti, Cybex Balios S Lux and Maxi-Cosi Adorra 2. Which one would be best at all-terrain? Or is there a whole other stroller that would be better?

Hello, there!

I must say none of your picks is a dedicated all-terrain stroller. The best from these would be the Joie Finiti for sure. I wouldn't really use the Cybex Balios S or the Maxi-Cosi Adorra for terrain much, it's too much of a struggle, to be honest. Here's a Maxi-Cosi Adorra full stroller review, if you want to know more about that one.

If a reversible seat unit stroller is a must-have, and the budget is tight, you probably won't do much better than the Finiti anyhow. I would look at the Moon Resea S as well, if it's available where you live - it's a small but quite a sturdy stroller, to begin with. Don't expect any of these two to perform brutally well on rough terrain, but occasional grass and such they'll do.

A little more expensive, but still doable option is the Easywalker Rudey. Do check our Easywalker Rudey full stroller review here just to be sure if it's not worth it.

I will also mention the Polish Espiro Only, but here, the availability will be even more in question.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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