Cybex Balios S 2v1

NEW 2020
The affordable, urban modernism in a bucket-seat pushchair

see 1 parent review

The Cybex Balios S 2v1 (Gold) is a new arrival and 2020 improvement of the Cybex Balios S that, in the original (now called Lux) version featured a conventional, full lie-flat type of the seat unit (as opposed to 2in1's bucket seat). The Balios S 2v1 is a 2in1 stroller system (with a possibility to add a car seat to make a 3in1 system with a travel system option).

The chassis features a suspension system and is combined with a carrycot and a bucket-type of the seat. The frame of the seat accommodates the carrycot fabrics as well, which saves you some storage space (and makes the cleaning and maintenance easier). This is a system that is very similar to the discontinued Cybex Priam with the 2in1 Light Seat. Over and above, the carrycot of this type is even more spacious, while the ergonomic seat unit is great for babies suffering from reflux. Another advantage is the extra-long hood with a sun visor. The seat can be reclined by being tilted as a whole using just one hand (even in the forward-facing mode).

parents say thx^^

A great idea for those who missed the Light seat of the old Priam! It is quite less compact than the "Lux" version, though. Overall, you get quite a nice performance for that money.
