  • rocks well
  • good handling (4 large wheels, swivel front)
  • large, comfortable carrycot with ventilation system
  • the seat can be easily disassembled for long distance car transport
  • for the number of disadvantages, EXPENSIVE
  • HEAVY!
  • the bassinet does not face in the direction of travel
  • canopies provide little shade
  • seat has a poor centre of gravity when facing rearward - hard to turn, very heavy feeling because the centre of gravity is shifted forward
  • when facing forward, the child cannot be lying horizontally, but in the first raised position, otherwise the head is tilted slightly downwards (not 180 degrees, more like 185)

My requirements for the stroller were that it should rock as much as possible (modern strollers are incomprehensibly hard for me, even though the manufacturer states "suspension"), it should have big wheels and turning would be a great advantage and a relief. But in my opinion, manufacturers still don't make strollers that are really good, especially when one wants a more classic stroller like this. This stroller would probably be good if it weren't so heavy and had a better center of gravity for the seat setup especially - it's too far forward when going rear-facing and the stroller gets very heavy and hard to operate. In my opinion too expensive for the number of drawbacks!
