Cybex Talos S Lux

see 10 parent reviews

The Cybex Talos S is a new arrival for 2020. This 'brother' of the famous Cybex Balios S can handle some harsh terrain use. The design and functions of both the Talos S and the Balios S are similar, but the more robust chassis of the Talos S is equipped with air-filled tires instead. In addition, the chassis is wider, and the weight capacity was increased to up to 22 kg. You will appreciate the relatively simple fold, the spacious shopping basket, and the generous size of the hood. You can put your newborn baby into a carrycot available in matching colors. Alternatively, using corresponding adapters, you can add a Cybex/Maxi-Cosi-type of car seat (or another brand with identical attachment system).

The Talos S is available in two variations. The Talos S Lux variation boasts an extra-large, well-ventilated hood and a seat unit reclining to a full lie-flat. The optional Cot S carrycot and adapters for Group 0+ car seats are available separately for the Talos S Lux. On the other hand, the Talos S 2v1 is a 2in1 stroller system (with an option of a car seat for a travel - 3in1 stroller system) comprising a bucket-type seat unit and carrycot fabrics, that you attach on the same frame as the seat fabrics. This system, similar to the former Cybex Priam with 2in1 Light Seat, will certainly save you some storage space.

parents say thx^^

This stroller is a beast

5

The stroller looks so trendy and has a great suspension. We often take it for hikes on uneasy surfaces and this stroller is a beast. The wheels are so steady and the seat is so comfortable!

  • easy assembly
  • reversible seat unit
  • suspension
  • leg rest and footrest
  • heavy

The amortization (suspension) is pretty much the same as on the Balios S stroller - therefore, not present. On the other hand, the stroller is very heavy, even pulling it out of the car boot is a workout.

The footrest is weak - the legs of a larger toddler protrude and dangle (on the less expensive Balios is a better one).

  • heavy
  • hard-felt wheels

The wheels are so hard they feel like solid wood or something. Also, the pushchair is too heavy.

The stroller probably weighs a ton

1
  • suspension
  • weight
  • basket

The storage basket is very shallow. The stroller probably weighs a ton - I mean, the manufacturer says 14/15 kg but it feels like so much more. I don't feel the suspension - the wheels are very hard, you might feel the suspension if the child inside is maybe much heavier...

Worth the money

4
  • value for the money
  • large hood
  • easy putting together
  • handy

A great pram that's really worth the money. We are very pleased with it. Recommended.

  • all-terrain push
  • large hood
  • wide seat
  • reversible seat
  • I found none (maybe except the high price)

A perfect pram for me. I don't really see any niggles - maybe apart from it being rather expensive. It is easy to push - around town as well as in the forest. A large hood, a wide seat and most importantly, it can face forward as well as backward.

The backrest reclines into three positions up to a full lie-flat sleeping position. It comes with a footmuff. I sincerely recommend it.

Looks better "on paper"

3

It feels wobbly a bit. The large wheels are nice, but they don't feel as all-terrain. I like the high seat back but would like a better footrest. The plastic on the hood is not the best to be there. Looks better "on paper".

  • Versatile use
  • We passed even through worse terrain
  • Price
  • Looks
  • Extremely large when folded

It's a nice, versatile pushchair for most terrains - still, it is really heavy, super bulky after folding, and I would still expect much more suspension on the wheels!

A great and comfy seat and those all-terrain wheels will make for great help on not-so-great sidewalks with all sorts of bumps and cracks. But the stroller feels kind of heavy. I also wish for some flaps to cover the side windows on the hood when it is extended - plus a longer leg rest.

My choice for our countryside lifestyle

4
  • canopy
  • wheels
  • adjustable handlebar
  • price
  • weight
  • a very simple carrycot

I love the idea of this stroller, and it is my choice for our countryside lifestyle. The price also helps my satisfaction with it.
