see 2 parent reviews

The Kinderkraft Pilot is an ultra-lightweight, ultra-compact stroller, ideal for the city or travels. Thanks to the weight of 12,8 lbs (5.8 kg) and a width of only 16,5” (42 cm), you will not struggle even in the narrowest shopping aisles. The spacious seat can handle even an older child, and it is possible to recline it to an almost flat position. The leg rest is missing, which is not ideal if your tall child enjoys naps in the stroller. The advantage of this stroller is also the comfortable, one-hand fold with a double locking system and an integrated carry strap for easy transport - you can pull the stroller behind you like luggage. The Pilot comes with a cup holder, and a rain cover included.

Your questions about the Kinderkraft Pilot

1)

I've recently purchased a universal footmuff for my Pilot stroller. I'm having trouble fitting it due to the bar. Is there anyway of fitting it?

Hello, Ali,

Unfortunately, no, there's no comfy way. The bar makes it pretty impossible to fit a regular, universal cosytoes of any kind. This is a super-light travel stroller so they were not thinking of footmuffs here. I can only suggest trying to find a footmuff with SEPARATE legs (e.g., Stokke once had such, but I believe there's more, depending on the country you're in, of course, the brand will change) - OR a winter overall for you baby instead a footmuff might work. Check, for example, a 7AM Enfant Nido for reference, or look at footmuffs for car seats.

Again, this is not a winter stroller by far, it is too small and simple with not too much space inside, so it wasn't designed to be used so - that is why you might be having problems.
