The Cybex Priam 3 is a new, even more luxurious and multi-functional 2019 version of the iconic Priam from the Cybex Platinum edition. The unique chassis emphasizes the suspension and all-terrain qualities with the ultra-modern look and stylish accents. The memory push buttons to remove the seat or the carrycot are a plus; the expandable, partially closable shopping basket of the Priam did not change. Except for rounder design and added functions, one of the most significant improvement is creating more options to personalize the stroller.

Apart from the original Matt Black and Chrome with Black color of the chassis, you can now choose Rosegold or Chrome with Brown details, as well as add a Seat Pack, which can be changed depending on your mood and taste. The Priam 3 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 seat is extra padded and can be reclined completely flat. The center of gravity of the stroller moves slightly when the stroller is reclined. You can fold the Priam 3, as you could its predecessor, with the seat still attached to the chassis. The hood of the Priam 3 is even bigger and extended by the added sun visor. 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.

Many optional accessories are available for the Priam 3. Apart from the usual footmuff, there is also the sibling board (the Priam skate). There is also an option to swap the front wheels for fixed all-terrain wheels or skis if you want to use your stroller in snowy mountains. On the beach, you can pull the Priam 3 behind you in the ‘two-wheels’ mode.

You will love it

  • Large, spacious bassinet
  • Two mesh windows on the bassinet hood - great to watch the world pass by when the baby's laying on its tummy
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to maneuver
  • Very simple fold
  • Takes up very little space when folded
  • Beautiful, stylish look
  • Compared to the 2018 version, the hood is worse - not as long, which is a shame

A fantastic stroller system, truly. I can recommend it - you will love it.

  • beautiful design (Rose Gold frame)
  • the tilt angle of the carrycot
  • panoramic + ventilation window on the carrycot (you can remove the upper layer)
  • spaciousness
  • soft, cotton mattress
  • easy manipulation and turning
  • not enough suspension
  • the telescopic handlebar, as well as other moving parts, started to rattle quite quickly

The Cybex Priam 2019 collection is a very beautiful, designer piece.

There is nothing to complain about with the carrycot. The overall incline (tilt) of the carrycot and the pleasant, soft, warm-feeling mattress material stook me by surprise, I must admit. A bonus would be its canopy with a panoramic and upper window (after removing the upper layer). A restless, curious baby can ride on his belly with enough to look at. The carrycot is spacious enough and not very heavy, which makes it easy to manipulate. A big advantage is also the detachable interior lining, which can be machine washed.

As for the seat unit part, I must admit that my expectations were higher, and I was quite disappointed. The whole base of the seat seems unstable, not sturdy enough; I would call it toy-like. After attaching it on the chassis, it doesn't hold there firmly at all, it moves (there's quite a give), and the moving is noisy (rattles). Although the seat is adjustable (several positions), I didn't find one in which the child would be comfortable. My dissatisfaction is even stronger because of the fact that even though easily washable, the fabrics used there are very slippery and absolutely non-absorbent. An advantage, on the other hand, would be the extra-large canopy, which performs its protective function excellently.

I own the Rose Gold color of the frame (I must admit that I love this color very very much). Its suspension is, however, not soft enough for any more challenging terrain, but if you take it as an urban kind of pram/pushchair, it's ok. So far, we managed somehow during all of our trips. However, the truth is that on uneven terrains, the telescopic handle rattles, which can be bothersome when using the Priam. The chassis is, otherwise, lightweight, easy to fold, well-made, and offers enough storage space, which is perfect for me! An eye-catching detail is also the combination of the telescopic handlebar with leather.

  • Easy folding
  • Practical shopping basket
  • Gate-opening bumper bar
  • Easy to push even with one hand
  • Design-wise perfect
  • Not too heavy
  • Not a well-made suspension system - I don't feel it at all
  • The telescopically-adjustable handlebar can be noisy on uneven surfaces

We got used to having it very quickly. Being low to the ground, it looks quite compact and not too heavy. Also, it's very easy to handle.

However, I was incredibly disappointed with the suspension, which is there just as a design element. In reality, the ride is quite hard, shaking the baby when passing through bad terrain. Passing through gravel is more difficult than with other strollers I tried. For all-terrain use, it is probably better to buy the big front wheels.

Although the stroller has a wide rear axle, there's no need to worry - it can fit into a small elevator quite well.
