Cybex Mios 2 from the superior Cybex Platinum edition is the improved version of the designer, urban stroller for 2019, as well as the smaller brother to the improved and full-sized Priam. Weighing just 9 kg and 50 cm wide, the Mios 2 is an excellent compact solution for parents looking for a lightweight stroller without the need to compromise on functionality. The Mios 2 features more elaborate details and new colors of Seat Packs matching the seat. The hood of the Mios 2 has a sun visor added, and there is a brand new carrycot available. The Mios 2 was launched in the basic - one tone collection as well as in limited Fashion editions and collaborations such as the 2018 Koi Crystallized, Birds of Paradise, Rebellious, Space Rocket by Anna K and also the Scuderia Ferrari.For 2019, a new limited edition from a Czech model - Cybex by Karolina Kurkova - was released.

The urban chassis is extraordinarily compact and features a soft suspension as well as a height-adjustable handlebar. The seat can be added to the chassis in both directions. Thanks to memory push buttons, it can be taken off the chassis and/or folded together with the chassis simply and one-handedly. The original seat with mesh panels is well ventilated, and the optional insert can be purchased for winter months. The fully reclined seat, combined with the newborn insert and the higher apron, creates a Lite Cot similar to the conventional carrycot, and suitable from birth. The Lite Cot can be appreciated especially for summer babies or for parents with limited storage space to accommodate a conventional carrycot. There is also the Lux Carry Cot available. This super comfortable, rounded carrycot provides 15 % more space. The Lux Carry Cot comes with the Panorama View and the Sky View functions - mesh windows at the back of the carrycot for better airflow and a nice view for your baby. A car seat can, of course, be also attached to the chassis using adapters, as well as other accessories that are available to complement the stroller.

Parent reviews of the Cybex Mios 2

4.2/5
Add YOUR review
if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • lovely look
  • seat length
  • mesh seat, incredible for summer
  • a larger fold when the seat is parent-facing
  • open seat/short canopy (when in lie-flat mode)
  • narrow seat (we're ok with it)

Even if narrower, the seat surface (about 95 cm) is absolutely OK even with a 3yo. I love that you can feel the suspension, and also the simple fold. The one niggle would be that in the reversed position, it is larger than when you fold it forward-facing. Oh, and maybe the open seat/shorter canopy when lying flat...

And - it looks so lovely and elegant 😍🤩 (we've got the rose gold frame).

  • Beautiful design
  • Great suspension
  • Large canopy
  • Even with smaller wheels it tackles some terrain
  • Saves a lot of space when folded
  • Easy one hand folding system
  • The leg rest could be a few cm longer, but that's not really a problem

The Cybex Mios 2020 Spring Blossom Dark was my dream since the moment I saw it. I am using it around town, the roads are quite OK. It tackles normal sidewalks well as cobblestones, or little stones on a worse terrain even - we went over grass patches as well. No problem with a village road either, and of course I am not going to use it in a forest... The nice suspension is great and can be felt, which is a great advantage.

No need to talk much about the design - it is simply a pushchair that makes every head turn

The one-hand folding is also a huge plus and helps me a lot. The pushchair doesn't take much space in the trunk. The rear wheels closer together are really nice for our narrow door. I go through easily and I don't scratch the rear wheels as I do with a Cybex Balios S.

The pushchair is a bit expensive but well worth the money. My daughter is 16 months old, 79 cm tall, and weighs 9.8 kg, and she fits in with winter cosytoes without problems. I can absolutely recommend it. I am happier with it than with any other model I owned.

I just love how beautiful it is! Perfect for a city mum. I have the Jeremy Scott edition, and it's a gem, really. There was, however, a problem with fading of the canopy - but they gave me a new one after putting in a complaint. This shouldn't happen with such an expensive model, I think. But now all is well again 😍

Beautiful, and the suspension is even better than the Priam's. I recommend it!

  • Price
  • Smaller wheels

A luxury ride for the city, but for a luxury price. It is higher up and more spacious than the Bee, and the push is so much better here too, so if unsure, take the Mios over the Bee.

An excellent choice for travelers

  • an extra large hood
  • lightweight
  • easy folding
  • nice to push
  • small wheels

Suitable for the city, shops and shopping malls. An excellent choice for travelers.

A top-of-the-line pushchair for me!!! For such small wheel size, it tackles terrain incredibly, no rattling! I am very happy with it 😉

  • workmanship, design with many details
  • simple folding
  • compactness
  • perfect push (on smooth surfaces)
  • suspension
  • ventilated summer seat
  • small wheels
  • shallow basket
  • worse center of gravity on the rear-facing reclined position
  • short seat surface

I bought this stroller after owning a Joolz Hub - and I was sorry that I changed it 😞 It's a stroller for either shopping or undemanding walks on smooth surfaces. There, the maneuvering is great, and the fold is perfect. After folding, it's handy and compact; I could easily load it in my tiny Ford Fiesta. I never learned if it can be folded rearward-facing, but I couldn't do it, the canopy always fell down if I tried. I also appreciated the rotating adjustment of the handlebar - I like it much more than the telescoping handlebars. Also, the weight is very pleasant, even though it's not the lightest stroller there is.

The chassis is sturdy and with a very nice suspension system, but you need to lubricate it from time to time; otherwise, it will start to squeak. If you add the rattling of the wheels on bad terrain, it "sounds" like an old stroller you have for your fourth kid 😃 😃 I had it in "Matt Black" which tends to get scratched easily, so I don't recommend this colorway. The wheels truly are not good on terrain, nor snow, nor cobblestones... best for interiors. Not even the nice suspension doesn't help there - they're too small with a narrow footprint, which means good maneuvering and a smooth push, but only on smooth surfaces. The basket is nice in size, but shallow - if I wanted to keep it for longer, I would probably have it made better at the tailor.

The seat unit has a ventilated, mesh upholstery plus an insert you pick the color of - great for summertime. You can recline it fully, which is great, but if you do it in the parent-facing mode, the center of gravity changes and the push is less smooth. The seat is designed a bit strangely to me - the sitting part plus the leg rest are short in my opinion, my 16mo daughter had her legs dangling in the laying position. After reclining the seat, the seat gets slightly longer, but still, I find it good up to maximum 2 years, after which the child looks too big for the Mios. The canopy is extendable, but it's still not big enough for the reclined position (the sun shone straight on the face of my napping daughter). The harness only works as a five-point - no way to make it a three-point one, as I was used to from other strollers I owned. The fabrics are nice to touch, easy-to-clean, I liked those.

I would sum it up as a fashion accessory for parents that want to be IN, being OK only on smooth sidewalks and shopping malls. A normal mom will be happier with a cheaper but more practically designed stroller.

  • summer-friendly mesh backrest
  • XXL canopy
  • small, solid wheels

I am absolutely satisfied so far. I find the mesh backrest to be my most fav feature!

We only kept it a week

  • Looks
  • Fold
  • Summer seat
  • Rattles
  • Not much space (and we're 10mo)
  • Not much leg space
  • In the reclined position, it is too open
  • The handlebar has too much will
  • Weird center of gravity
  • Small basket

We only kept it a week. It is really not worth that much money.

Your questions about the Cybex Mios 2

1)

Will the original Cybex Mios carry cot work with the new Cybex Mios 2?

Hi, Rachel,

As both the Mios and the Mios 2 have the same attachment system, the answer is YES, the older bassinet WILL work with the newer Mios2 frame (and vice versa). You can, therefore, attach the older model's carrycot (e.g., bought second hand) to the newer model.

Do take into account that the newer carrycot is a bit roomier and has multiple enhanced features - but I personally was happy with the older carrycot as well. I would just wish that the older carrycot's apron was higher (or the canopy extendable).

Is Cybex MIOS 2 compatible with Cybex Cloud Q car seat?

Hey, Mellon,

A good question, as the Cybex Cloud Q car seat is quite a large, heavy one. It IS compatible, YES, even if it will perhaps look a bit funny with that car seat. In any case, the Cybex Mios is officially compatible with the Aton and Could car seat lines - with adapters, that is.

Hi!

I've got a Cybex Mios2 pushchair and got it along with a matching cosy toes at the stores. I am planning to swap it for a different one just for a change of style for this season and planning to sell the Mios cosytoes to a friend. She's got a Cybex Priam. And the question is, will the Mios cosy toes fit the Cybex Priam?

Thanks!

Hey, Dee,

The cosytoes made for the Cybex Mios is actually made for the Cybex Priam. They are often offered listed as "Cybex Priam / Mios footmuff." So no worries, YES, the footmuff you used with your Cybex Mios WILL fit the Cybex Priam as well.

Does the new carry cot from Mios2 fit the original Mios frame if I want to purchase the newer cot?

Hello,

Yes, indeed, the attachment system from the original Cybex Mios are the same on the second iteration, so YES, the newer bassinet will fit the Cybex Mios 2.

How do you clean it? Are the textiles washable in a washing machine? I'm debating between the Bee6 (Bugaboo) and the Mios 2 (Cybex) stroller.

Hi, myriam,

You shouldn't actually machine-wash it. I owned it myself and some parts, like the leg rest, are pretty much impossible to detach, and also, they might tear or fade after washing. I did clean it easily, though, just with a sponge or brush and soap water. I mean, read more about stroller cleaning and maintenance here, I put quite a lot of useful info there.

Compared to the Bugaboo Bee6, I must say the Mios felt much better, steering-wise (and popping curb-wise), and also, the seat is much high up on the frame. Another great thing about it is that it does feature a leg rest and the whole seat length measurement is much longer, so better for napping (no dangling feet like on the Bee). I enjoyed the rotating handle more as well. The folded size is also much more compact.

The Bee, on the other hand, is a classic, so I see what you like there. I wouldn't, however, decide based on the machine washability, but rather on which of them has the features you need and fits your "riving" better. Do think about priorities when choosing the right pushchair to be the happiest in the end.

Good luck!

Hi, is it a steady stroller? I really like the lightweight fact, only if it doesn't compromise on the sturdiness of the frame?

Hey, Sara,

I owned a Cybex Mios and I can honestly say that even if I was unsure how's it going to be, it was truly stable. I owned it as a pram (with a carrycot) as well as a pushchair (with a seat facing both me and the world) and in both setups, the ride was comfortable and safe.

I even put on a large picnic bag from Ikea to a trip up a little hill (so a bit of terrain, too) - and it never seemed to trip or have a problem with uneven weight (as these lightweight, compact strollers almost always do). 😊

Also, the frame is actually more solid-feeling than the one of the Cybex Priam in the way of nothing wobbles and there's even a bit of suspension. I do like that the handle rotates (as opposed to telescopes) so the center of gravity is better adjusted. This also means that super tall dada (like 2m tall) might have too little space for their steps.

Of course, don't expect those small-ish wheels to be a true all-terrain ride - if there's a hole larger than the wheel, you'll have to lift it up and get over it. But apart from that, I can honestly recommend the Mios - for such a small ride, it's very capable.

If you were still unsure about it, from the small prams, I can also recommend the Easywalker Charley as sturdy - more in Easywalker Charley full review if you'd want to know more.

What is the difference between the Cybex mios and Mios 2 ?

Hello, apart from new fabrics designs and quality (different feel on touch), a new canopy with a sun visor was introduced. The backrest insert is a part of the basic package in the second generation (before, it was sold separately). New colorways and fashion editions are also an added asset of the Mios 2 version - and a new type of the carrycot is a plus for those who want to use it right from newborn since it features the extra ventilation and panoramic window.

Why does the carrycot have a slope?
Is it better for newborns? Is there a time limit for the baby to be sleeping in the carrycot?

Hello there, what do you mean with the slope? If you are thinking about it being slightly tilted, it is more a design factor, and the carrycot inside itself is pretty much flat, so I wouldn't really worry about that. The only thing that is sometimes happening is that the manufacturers make it so that the mattress is slightly inclined, but really only slightly, which is actually better for a baby's reflux. If, however, the carrycot would be tilted so that the baby's head would be lower than its feet, that is a fault of that piece, and I would consider returning it or claiming your warranty.

In a good, quality carrycot, a baby can sleep as long as it wants, even though overnight sleeping is allowed only in those certified for that.
