The Britax Affinity 2 is a new version of the luxurious Affinity released in 2016. The chassis has a specific wavy design and a shaped leatherette handle. The wheels with typical spokes have a soft suspension system. The bucket seat is suitable for children from about 6 months of age. Newborn insert makes the seat suitable even for a smaller baby. The carrycot of the Affinity 2 has an additional visor extending the hood. Besides the carrycot, you can also use the stroller with a car seat or buy a complete stroller system.

You can personalize the Affinity completely. The chassis is available in silver, white, black and chrome. The gray seat has to be completed with a separately purchased Color Pack - a hood, harness pads, a seat liner and a basket insert in the chosen color.

parents say thx^^

A great seat unit

4
  • Agility
  • Easy positioning
  • Can be facing forward and parent direction
  • Bucket seating (not to everyone's taste)
  • Small canopy

A great seat unit, can be turned to face the parent and also the opposite direction. A lightweight stroller. The bucket seat does not suit every baby.

An easy to store stroller

4

I got the pushchair setup and it's an easy to store stroller. We transport it to our second home every week, max satisfaction for me, my daughter is fine with it too.

  • The seat part is very good
  • The seat belts are also very comfortable
  • The front wheel broke quickly
  • The plastic part is broken, and the plastic looks brittle
  • Because my daughter is big, heavy, and active, the connecting part of the aluminum frame broke when she was about two and a half years old
  • Because this is an old model, second-hand sales are small

Very beautiful, but some materials have poor mechanical strength.

Your questions about the Britax Affinity 2

1)

I’ve been given my daughter’s Britax Affinity 2 stroller to clean up and sell on her behalf. However I’m a bit concerned that the chassis is wobbly. The problem seems to be the first joint just below the black plastic bracket that holds the pushchair seat. There is movement (forward and back) in this joint on both sides of the chassis.

Is this normal/safe to use? Can it be fixed? There appear to be two rivets on each side which attach this part to the lower part of the chassis.

Hi, Annie,

Without more (a video link, perhaps), it is very hard to say. If the looseness is very heavy, or you can see the metal and plastic parts going away from each other, it might be a problem, yes. However, a bit of looseness is actually normal, and Britax prams' frames actually are known for more looseness because of a rather soft plastic.

My advice here would be to perhaps ask a stroller service or a Britax distributor, ideally with pictures a nd a video, to be sure. You can also try to visit a Britax store and ask there, or call/email a Britax customer service, asking for an opinion - I mean, child safety is quite important.

But my guess will be, if the problem is not brutal, it should be pretty normal, especially for a few years old stroller.

Hi, my Britax Affinity 2 Chassis was broken, but all the rest part are still well for example the seat, would you please tell that are there any other type of chassis I can by to replace the broken one?

Heya, Lulu,

The ideal solution is to order the SAME chassis as that one is made and best suited for this seat and its center of gravity. So I would either contact a Britax seller anywhere around your, they might be able to order you a spare part for Britax models. Also, to go through classifieds and get a cheap, used model sold either for parts or as a cheaper whole might make sense to you.

Apart from the Affinity frame, I know moms using the Britax B-Motion Plus WITH BRITAX car seat ADAPTERS on that frame - and on those adapters, the Affinity seat can be fitted. I am not completely recommending such a thing as, as I already said, it was not made to be used in such a way. I, however, know mommies do that to have their reversible seat on another stroller frame.

Hope I helped!
