ABC Design Samba

NEW 2020
see 1 parent review

The ABC Design Samba is an all-terrain capable but predominantly urban model launched for 2021 (at the end of 2020). This stroller system boasts clean lines, a high - 22kg weight capacity of the seat unit while being on the lighter, more compact side.

The Samba is the more all-terrain version of a lighter and more bugdet-friendly ABC Design Swing.

The differences between the ABC Design Samba and the ABC Design Swing

The Samba, compared to the Swing, has almost 5 cm larger front wheels, and all its wheels are covered in rubber (as opposed to Swing's foam). Also, the Swing, as a more budget-friendly model, is available in fewer fabric colorways than the Samba. The weight of the Samba with the seat unit attached is a bit higher than the Swing's, and the Samba folded size is, even if by a centimeter, slightly larger.

The spacious click-on parts - the carrycot as well as the seat - feature extendable canopies with ventilation, and there's the lie-flat option along with comfortable padding inside. There are different colorways to choose from, with even special Fashion editions to opt for or the luxurious Diamond collection with quilted upholstery. The recycled Midnight color fabrics are also an option for those eco-conscious. Different accessories are available to purchase separately depending on your needs. The Maxi-Cosi and Britax-Römer car seat compatibility to create a travel system are also at your convenience.

parents say thx^^

Fantastic value for money

4
  • value for the price (you get so much more than you'd expect)
  • looks gorgeous
  • nice and large wheels that are not in danger of a puncture
  • spacious bassinet and seat
  • telescoping handle covered in PU leather
  • I'd add softness to the shock absorbers
  • fabrics on the canopies could be thicker
  • basket could be larger
  • for a smaller pram, it could be more compact

Fantastic value for money. I love the large wheels that don't get a puncture. And there's so much space for the baby in both the pram and the pushchair. Recommended.
