The stroller caught my eye right away, mainly because of its looks and its price. I bought it on the internet in an English online shop and it was for a nice price in a set with a bassinet, adapters and the pushchair unit. I didn't regret my choice for a moment.
The stroller is beautiful, it can be folded easily with one hand. We have a big dog, hence the busy car boot - the Oyster Zero can be folded and then put in an IKEA bag, so I put it behind the driver's seat and it doesn't stain the inside of my car. The stroller traveled with us on the plane and to the sea. It conquers different terrains with ease - a sandy beach, a gravel hill, a forest path, ...
It's light, I have no problem to carry my little one in it (he's 14 kg) up the stairs. It's also beautiful. My friend has a Valco Snap, and it looks pretty cheap next to the Oyster. The only disadvantage it has over the Valco is that it folds inside out, so it's easier to get dirty (her Valco also includes an apron, the Oyster doesn't).
The gel-like wheels are ok, easy to clean, nothing gets caught on them. Just be careful and take off and wash the front and rear wheels from time to time so you don't get the lock dirty and malfunctioning.
A huge advantage is the ability to put the stroller in the full recline position and the long hood, so there is no need to have a diaper over it. As my son was born in August and has gotten bigger since he was a baby, he grew out of the bassinet pretty quickly and honestly looked like in a coffin in it. I don't really recommend the bassinet, but since I was buying the stroller more based on the seat, I didn't mind. In the winter, I bought a used older X-lander model for a transitional period (it was absolutely not good - it was heavy as hell and I almost didn't get through the front door with it), and then a Dorjan Danny Sport Baby Boat pram - similar problem, and most importantly it looked cheap. So I'm pretty spoiled thanks to the Oyster, and I have to say it's a stroller I recommend to everyone I meet.
