Easywalker Charley

The small stroller with big features

see 5 parent reviews

The Easywalker Charley is new for 2018/2019. This unusually lightweight stroller or stroller system is inspired by the design of the Harvey but destined only for the city, where you’ll not just appreciate its 8 kg, but also the easy maneuverability and a compact fold.

Atypically for most strollers, the Charley carrycot features a comfortable mattress of a thickness of 3 cm. You can take the carrycot off the chassis by using a lever at its base. The fully reversible and foldable (even while still attached to the chassis) seat unit can be reclined by using a rear lever and can be heightened with height adapters, usable for the carrycot as well. The leg rest is adjustable. The basic version usually does not include the bumper bar, but it is available to purchase separately. You can also use an optional car seat with the chassis - the available adapters are compatible with any Maxi-Cosi type car seats.

Parent reviews of the Easywalker Charley

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • quality
  • compactness
  • slumped kid in the seat

I love how the fold is compact even if it's truly usable as a full-sized pram. The wheels and driving are also nice, and the whole pushchair feels high-quality. I did mind the seat, however - it is not as upright, and without the bumper bar, the child slums/slides down at times, looking not so comfortable.

  • weight
  • compactness
  • lay-flat seat
  • high-quality fabrics, leatherette coversand padding - and I personally love the pastel colors
  • even if it doesn't seem so, a rather spacious seat unit with quite a large canopy
  • shopping basket size is pleasant - it was actually big enough to hold my older son :-D
  • quality joints with metal parts mean longevity while the compactness won't mean rattling or weak chassis
  • practical details - like the integrated bag holders on the handlebar
  • accessories availability - height adapters for the carrycot, child's bumper bar, and other
  • not the lowest price - but you get what you pay for
  • the bumper bar is sold separately (as well as other accessories) - making the price even higher
  • I would make the leg rest longer and cover it with some wipe-clean layer
  • the seat unit is lower to the ground, which is not a negative by itself, but tall parents sometimes don't like this
  • clicking off the seat unit needs some getting used to - it's not that intuitive, thinking about aligning the signs
  • someone could ming the specific design, mainly that of the canopy - I would probably make it more round to make it pleasing for the general public - and an even larger sun visor would also help

Charley, for me - yes, yes, yes, and I rate it 90 %! It is the same category as the Cybex Mios, Silver Cross Spirit… adding better wheels, awesome padding, good driveability, and unique design. Don't forget, I am taking into account that I am rating a compact model - and I am not searching for real all-terrain capability or features not expected from a small urban model. If you take it for what it is, you will find out that in it's smallness, it's a great stroller.

This is an extract from our long-read Easywalker Charley full stroller review.

Even though it looks a bit like a stroller for dolls, I was quite curious. My boy fits well in it; however, even if he's not a baby anymore - although he's already a big boy, the Charley handled well even loaded. To get up curbs (seat facing forward) was no problem at all. I am almost 5' 12' (~ 182 cm), and the handlebar adjusted to my site easily. I think it's almost a hybrid of a full-size stroller and an umbrella stroller - meaning, if you want a tiny, compact stroller, you cannot expect 100% comfort of a huge seat - but this is absolutely enough, some kind of a middle ground.

I don't know anybody owning an Easywalker who'd complain.

  • Quality materials
  • Suspension
  • Soft, smooth ride
  • Easy to manipulate it even in harsher terrain (one-handed even!)
  • Height adapters
  • Bag holders on the sides of the handlebar (this was a dream to have e. g. while shopping)
  • Large basket (compared to how small the stroller is)
  • Leather-like handle- and bumper bar
  • Bumper bar is sold separately
  • Front axle can get a bit noisy on uneven surfaces
  • Seat unit is on the smaller side, but actually big enough
  • Price of the stroller

I rate the Easywalker Charley as a high-quality stroller that can handle almost any terrain (even while being small). The stroller is very lightweight, small after folding (also good for plane trips) 🤗 Quality fabrics. Smooth and soft ride.

Its suspension is absolutely sufficient - it is really quite soft. The seat unit, however small it seems at the start, is suitable also for larger children. My 2-year-old was very satisfied in it, even though her legs were sticking out a little.

Leather handlebar as well as the bumper bar. Height-adjustable canopy, and it is also long enough.

What I minded the most was that the front axle made some noise when we passed through uneven terrain. Height adapters for the seat can be purchased optionally - without them, the seat sits low on the chassis.

Overall very comfortable

4
  • beautiful design
  • suspension is really there!
  • large basket, well-accessible
  • roomy seat
  • not so obvious from the promotional pictures, but the canopy is quite massive
  • adjustable height of the canopy
  • awesome, really small fold even with the seat attached
  • lays fully flat
  • soft padding
  • funny, plastic-y smell from the box
  • I'd prefer the peek-a-boo window on the extendible part of the canopy to be closable
  • carrycot could be a wee bit larger (and with a longer hood)
  • some could mind the seat unti/carrycot beaing quite low on the chassis

A beautiful, very very compact stroller/stroller system. I love how all the joints are reinforced/metal inside, while the stroller is really lightweight and easy to maneuver. Feels sturdy. Comfy padding and overall very comfortable - for the kid to sit in, for the parent to push it.

Your questions about the Easywalker Charley

1)

Does anyone have any opinion/experience on the use of the Easywalker Charley chassis with a newborn car seat, for example, the Cybex Cloud Z, in terms of being suitable for the weight of the car seat and not falling down? Thank you very much.

Hello, there,

The Easywalker Charley IS compatible with the Cybex Cloud Z and it absolutely shouldn't fall down. I wouldn't worry about it.

I would maybe only consider a car seat that is a bit lighter for your sake - to carry the Cloud Z is a bit (or more) of a workout, and it cannot even recline while in the car (only on the pram's chassis). Kiddy or Joie (i-Level) reclinable car seats (also compatible with the same adapters as the Cybex Cloud) can do the same job while being able to lie almost flat on the road as well. Just a how to pick a car seat idea ;-)
