ABC Design 3Tec Plus

DISCONTINUED in 2016

The ABC Design 3Tec Plus was launched in 2014. It is an improved version of the 3Tec. The 3Tec Plus is available in new colors, and in the Style edition, even the chassis features matching details. The upgraded chassis is also rounder and equipped with adjustable side suspensions. The front wheel locking mechanism is foot operated, eliminating the need to bend. The central brake is located on the reversible handlebar. The 3Tec Plus comes with a larger shopping basket with side pockets for all your bits and pieces. Once folded, the 3Tec Plus can be manually locked using a locking strap.

The bucket-type seat can be reclined fully, including the leg rest. You can also adjust the length of the leg rest in order to increase the total length of the seat. Thanks to a newly added lever mechanism, you can even flatten the seat so that your child can enjoy napping on a flat surface. The seat comes equipped with a memory foam seat liner. The height of the safety belts is adjustable too. The hood of the 3Tec Plus has an extra panel that you can unzip to extend the hood. There are also new reflective elements, useful for increasing the visibility in challenging light conditions. The chassis is compatible with an optional car seat or a foldable carrycot. You can buy the 3Tec Plus as a stroller system too.
