Cam Cortina X3 Tris Evolution

DISCONTINUED in 2017
see 16 parent reviews

The Cam Cortina X3 Tris Evolution is a popular three-wheel stroller system. The large air-filled tires can handle even rough terrain. The chassis with suspension ensures a smooth ride. The seat is fully reversible and can be reclined flat. Reclining the backrest automatically raises the leg rest. The footrest can be adjusted by rotating and can thus lengthen the leg rest. In the 3in1 stroller system you’ll also find a spacious carrycot that can be used in the car with the optional car kit. The stroller also comes with a car seat that can be attached directly to the chassis.

You can identify the older Cortina models by a chassis in a lighter color, solid wheels and a pocket on the back side of the hood. Older carrycots were a little less spacious.

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^

Very practical

4
  • large cot
  • excellent handling
  • a lot of accessories
  • can be washed in the washing machine
  • less modern, design-wise

Excellent pram, very practical. Large carry cot, seat part also comfortable. Only the design is maybe a little less modern. :)

I have a second hand piece, used at my grandmother's as a second stroller. The basinet is totally cool :-) I wasn't too thrilled with the seat unit, but it's good for sleeping and I use it. I find it's better for bigger babies than tiny tots.

Superb

4

A superb pram.

My son always sleeps well there

3
  • Big wheels
  • Large sleeping area
  • Good manoeuvrability
  • Poor compactness
  • Fabric basket
  • Short canopy
  • A bit hard, suspension-wise

We have a stroller as a spare at my parents' place. We use the seat part. I praise the large sleeping area - it is top, my son always sleeps well there ;-)

Great quality and handling

5

Great quality and handling. Italian quality and possibilities of variation.

  • Good wheels
  • decent suspension
  • Big spacious cot for lying down the baby
  • Front of the cot cover can be lifted and has bug net for some extra breeze
  • Feels sturdy
  • Front wheel can rotate or lock
  • Car seat in a lying down position when on stroller
  • Quite heavy
  • Takes up all the trunk space when cot is added (bmw 2 trunk)
  • Car seat seems quite uncomfortable and warm for baby
  • Car seat has only 3 point strapping mechanism
  • Shading on cot and car seat is small

I like this stroller, feels robust and handles forest paths well. The car seat is probably it's biggest drawback. We got this second hand at quarter the price. Otherwise, I'd probably rank it lower.

I wouldn't want it anymore

1.0
  • The car seat and carrycot clicked in well
  • Poorly cushioned
  • The three wheeler didn't fit me
  • Seat unit uncomfortable for the child

I wouldn't want it anymore 😖

I wanted a three-wheeler and until I had it, I thought it will be absolutely great. It wasn't until it was in practical use that I found out it wasn't.

The bassinet and the car seat are absolutely great, I don't have a single reservation, everything is maximum satisfaction. But the seat unit is a total failure, inappropriate size, unused space, just horrible. The stroller left out flat and was replaced by an X-lander.

I really don't recommend it

1
  • price
  • tips over
  • does not have good suspension
  • does not handle well

I really don't recommend this pram. The baby is just squashed in it, the plastic squeaks all the time, it doesn't handle well, and it tips over in turns.

I'd never get it again

1
  • Easy to attach the bassinet and car seat
  • Unstable
  • Poor suspension
  • Impractical seat

I'd never get it again.
