Gesslein F3 Air+

see 4 parent reviews

The Gesslein F3 Air+ is a three-wheel version of the model F4. Its three-wheel chassis is also used for the simpler model [[gesslein-s3-air|S3] which can be created by purchasing the non-reversible seat unit textiles. The F3 Air+ is based on the older F3 model but comes with an improved type of wheels made of hardened rubber. Thanks to the inbuilt air chambers, the tire is lighter, easily maneuvrable and sticks to the surface better. At the same time, it is quite sturdy, offering the advantages of an air-filled tire.

The F3 Air+ is a robust stroller featuring a light anodized aluminum chassis. Three wheels with suspension can handle even a rougher terrain. The spacious reversible seat with the extra large ventilated hood can be fully reclined. It is possible to increase the total length of the seat by extending the leg rest. You can create a travel system suitable from birth by purchasing either one of two carrycots inserted in the seat (soft C1 transformable into a footmuff, or hard C2) or the classic hard carrycot C3. C3 can be added to the chassis in two different heights. There is also an option to attach the car seat to the chassis using adapters.

The F3 Air+ is available in tens of various colors. The stroller comes with the Loop seat liner with Cell Pur foam and head support. You can also purchase other optional liners as well as a changing bag that is easily customizable by swapping the front panel. If you choose your F3 Air+ with the handbrake or with a handlebar covered in leatherette, you will have to pay extra. Other accessories like a footmuff, a parasol or a summer kit are also available.

parents say thx^^
  • easy handling
  • comfortable ride even on difficult terrain
  • lightweight
  • reversing seat for both forward and reverse-facing
  • nice colours in endless variations
  • customised features (handbrake, loop liner, stroller details)
  • large sitting area for the child
  • full recline and an upright sitting option
  • positioning of the legrest
  • large basket
  • beautiful modern design
  • high purchase price
  • folding is not one handed

Absolutely great all-terrain stroller, which is equal to the great TFK or THULE brands - compared to these strollers, it also has a reversible seat. Rear wheels are sprung, there's also a scratch resistant frame. The child's sleeping area is so large that it can accommodate a larger child of three years old.

I appreciate the quality of the upholstery materials - they do not fade in the sun. The wheels have quality bearings, which, however, when "worn out" you can easily replace at home yourself - and you still have a wonderfully quiet ride. The loop liner gives the stroller a great design. The large expandable canopy makes for maximum comfort in summer against the sun, as well as in the cold against wind and snow. I have no complaints, only perhaps the higher purchase price.

Bulky, heavy

  • I found no advantages
  • Written in the desc

Bulky, heavy. Even the colour was quickly faded. We had it for about 3 months.

  • driveability
  • high-quality materials
  • variability (accessories available)
  • practicality and functionality
  • price
  • not the lightest nor the most compact, but for what it is, one doesn't really expect any less (and it's all actually manageable)
  • maybe not the most fashionable one

This is a "workhorse slash tank" kind of pram/pushchair. We could go through anything, and my little one was always super-comfy. I was very satisfied with it - bassinet- and seat unit-wise, and after my DS grew out of it, I passed it to my sister - she is already using it for her second child (and it is still working well).

  • Quiet when walking
  • Large mesh - excellent ventilation during summers
  • Loop liner made out of memory foam, insulated on the winter side
  • Easy manipulation and user-friendly brake system
  • Wheels and suspension
  • Reversible seat unit
  • Easy to maneuver
  • Size - it can accommodate a 3-year-old
  • The seat can be fully reclined
  • The brand name scratched out quickly from the handle

I really wanted to buy a new pram for our second baby. However, I couldn't find a single fault on the one we already have. Even though I was looking around, I was not able to find something better. After 2 years of use, it doesn't have any faults. I recommend a leather-covered version that doesn't need to be washed - you just wipe it and voilá. The footmuff is also awesome.
