ABC Design Cobra

DISCONTINUED in 2015
see 1 parent review

The ABC Design Cobra is a three-wheeled brother of the four-wheeler Mamba. The chassis is equipped with large foam wheels. Thanks to the suspension, the Cobra is easily maneuverable even on the more challenging urban surfaces. Another advantage of this stroller is its large shopping basket.

The bucket-type seat features bold, contrasting fabrics and is suitable from six months up. It can be reclined fully, including the leg rest. The chassis is also compatible with the spacious Cobra/Mamba carrycot. This carrycot features a ventilated hood that can be used as a sun shield. Using adapters, you can add either the ABC Design car seat or one of the other well-known car seat brands. The Cobra is also available as a stroller system. You can recognize the older models by the plastic clasps on the hood and the reclining mechanism using a lever instead of the newer side buttons. The hood of the 2015 model featured an additional, extended sun visor. The same year, the newer Cobra Plus replaced the Cobra.

parents say thx^^

More suitable for urban terrain

4
  • Simple and quick to assemble design
  • Option to buy adaptors for the car seat
  • Insect mesh in the bassinet
  • Option to position the seat in both the direction of travel and against it
  • Rapid wear of wheel material
  • Fading of fabric colours
  • Difficult to handle when driving on uneven terrain or during winter months in case of unploughed snow

I was satisfied with this stroller. It has a lot of useful features (e.g. insect mesh or bad weather cover for the bassinet, the possibility to place the seat unit in the direction of travel as well as facing the parent, a spacious storage space in the bottom part of the stroller...).

In my opinion, it is more suitable for urban terrain, because in the village, for example, in winter, snow is less often cleared and the stroller is then harder to handle when moving - the front wheel gets stuck. Also, the foam that the wheels are made of wears out more quickly when you walk with the stroller on uneven terrain, e.g. gravel or gritty rocks... When using the stroller in sunny weather in the summer months, the colour of the fabric fades over time.

The advantage of the stroller is the easy and quick handling when folding the chassis. Once folded, the frame can also fit in the trunk of a smaller car, such as a Toyota Yaris. In the summer months, I appreciated the possibility of positioning the seat in both the direction of travel and the opposite direction by simply unhooking it and then attaching it to the structure in the other way. I also liked the fact that I could buy adapters for attaching the car seat so, for example, I didn't have to carry the whole stroller unnecessarily to the doctor's office or to the grocery store. All I needed was the frame, the connectors and the car seat.
