The Noordi Fjordi II is a newer - 2018 continuation of the original fixed-wheeled Noordi Fjordi stroller system. The differences between the Noordi Fjordi and the Noordi Fjordi 2 start with the troller frame - the second-generation features lockable swivel wheels and a rear suspension system that can be regulated (the first-gen having a 'classic', retro-style chassis without these possibilities). The Fjordi II is, therefore, more agile as well as a bit more compact.

The neutral melange-colored carrycot and seat unit can be parent- as well as world-facing. The Fjordi II is usually sold as a 2in1 or a 3in1 system to be usable right from birth. The carrycot with a thermoregulation system in the canopy and the bottom ventilation also features an integrated mosquito net.

The seat unit is fully reversible and reclinable in the backrest as well as leg rest area - and even the child's bumper bar can be height adjusted. The seat's also equipped with a soft liner insert. The same liner is included with the car seat that can be purchased either as a part of the 3in1 stroller set or as a sold-separately part. The adapters for the car seat are Maxi-Cosi style, meaning compatible with other well-known car seat brands. You'll also get a full set of basic accessories (including a mommy bag or a cup holder) included with the 2in1 / 3in1 Fjordi stroller system.

FJORDI, PASTThe Fjordi line offered front swivel wheels in the Fjordi Sport version at first, while the fixed-wheeled variation was also called Fjordi Classic. The Classic became the "norm" over time, the Sport version being discontinued over time to later resurface in a newer Fjordi II model.

parents say thx^^

I liked the pram more

3
  • inflatable wheels
  • open basket
  • adjustable handle
  • easy canopy extending (carrycot)
  • seat canopy is LARGE
  • a height adjustable bumper bar 🔝
  • carrycot smaller than stated by the manufacturer
  • carrycot hood clicks while eing adjusted upwards
  • mesh extension position weirdly on the hood (carrycot)
  • frame is bulky after folding - his is not a travel-friendly pram
  • I don't like the included changing bag/backpack - not a pretty not a practical shape
  • seat unit adjustment is difficult
  • the canopy on the seat wobbles and sometimes jumps back while pushing over bumps, and clicks VERY noisily when adjusted - I am not a fan even if it's large (plus there's mesh again over the child's head 😩)
  • harness

My husband wanted inflatable wheels, and I wanted either the Noordi the Tutis Viva Life. The Fjordi had those so it won. It is true that they seemed the most all-terrain and so the most "manly" in the eyes of my DH 🙂 I do feel sorry, however, that the suspension is stiffer, compared to the Viva I was also trying out at length in the shop.

I am also glad that the Fjordi has an open basket, compared to the closable Viva's, because it can hold more stuff from my point of view. Just seems bigger. A negative, compared to the Viva, are the missing release button - the detaching of the carrycot or the seat is two-handed, compared to the other pram.

I like the comfort inside the carrycot - it is well padded and they say it also protects well from the cold. I can't say my baby is complaining, so so far so good, but what I don't like is that the internal measurements were stated much larger than they actually are. Size-wise, a very normal, average-sized carrycot, but a good one at that. So this is good to know. Another good/bad thing is the extendable canopy of the carrycot - the double visor and the zip-open extension are great. BUT. The mesh extending part is so positioned that not always you can use it - it is mesh and over the baby's head, so great for airflow, less great for the sun shining into my baby girl's face.

The position adjustment of the canopy is easy thanks to the side button (you only need to push one), even if maybe the canopy does feel a bit wobbly over time. It clicks when you put it up, that's also good to know a thing, I think.

The seat is, in my opinion, not as good. I mean, it is rather nice, space-wise, but the recline is so hard to do, and the canopy... Great on paper, but it wobbles, has the same weirdly-positioned mesh as the carrycot (even worse, I'd say), and it kind of cannot be used other than fully open or fully closed - or it moves so much... and the adjustment clicks so loudly... Oh, and the harness seems so cheap and is fiddly... But the padding is nice and the seat sits rather upright - and I am loving the height-adjustable bumper bar with the crotch strap. So there are good things, and there are weaker things on the seat.

I liked the pram more.

We do like the ultra-light cradle

4

Bought this stroller almost a year ago, and the quality of it is perfect. We do like the ultra-light cradle (carrycot), which was beneficial for us during wintertime as it is spacious for a baby.

However, it was quite expensive, but it was worth paying.

We recommend it!

We bought this pram for our baby a year ago - it looked great, and the selling points that the pram would keep her warm in winter and cool in the summer made it a no-brainer for us. Unfortunately, we felt like we had no brains for getting sucked in when it came to actually use it!

The carrycot was so difficult to get on the base - my baby usually ended up in a full-scale meltdown before we made it out the door. The pram constantly pulled to one side when being pushed, which made walking uphill extremely tiring and difficult, and also meant that we couldn't rock her in it to keep her asleep once we got home.

The tire deflated after 5 uses and we were told that we should be carrying a pump with us everywhere we go - so much for all-terrain and being good enough for 'Nordic winters', the wheel managed to deflate in mild weather, being pushed around a shopping center and tarmac streets! Maybe it would have fared better being pushed up a steep rocky mountain??

The car seat, which came as part of the travel system, had 0 head support for a newborn, and we had to buy a separate insert to keep my baby safe.

Noordi's customer service was abysmal, and they were extremely rude when informed of the issues we had experienced, basically stating that we had a choice of all the prams in the world, so it was our problem for picking theirs - hardly instills a lot of confidence when they can't even defend their own product with more than that!

Avoid this company and their products at all costs - we were able to claim a full refund and went for a Venicci instead, which is amazing - I just wish I'd go for it first!

  • Pretty design
  • So much adjust depending on the needs of the mommy and the baby (recline, canopy, handlebar)
  • Waterproof fabrics
  • Large carrycot
  • Large shopping bag space
  • Easy to maneuver
  • Metal chassis
  • All accessories needed are included
  • Higher price
  • A more difficult unfolding (it gets better over time)
  • A bit heavy to take down the stairs every day

A very good pram. A spacious carrycot, large storage space, pretty design. The maneuvering is smooth, the handlebar, and the carrycot backrest are fully adjustable. It's warm and cozy in winter, no wind getting through to the baby, and the canopy also features a summer ventilation mesh. The 2in1/3in1 system has all the necessary accessories included (mosquito net, rain cover, cup holder, changing bag). It folds ok even for a smaller car.

The downsides would be a higher weight and a longer time of getting used to the reclining (it was stiff).

  • Spacious, well-padded carrycot
  • Carrycot/seat unit placed high on the chassis - great for taller moms and dads
  • Hood with well-shading sun visor
  • Hood can be adjusted one-handedly
  • Reflective elements on the carrycot
  • Large, open-style shopping basket
  • Gel-filled wheels
  • Great for harsher terrain
  • Quite robust
  • Changing bag too large

So far, we only use the carrycot (half a year). I'll add a few words about the seat unit later. We own the version with smaller front wheels.

We liked this model because of the placement of the carrycot higher on the chassis, and also because it is so well padded for winter - Noordi has quite a lot of customers from Russia, and I thought - if this stroller can handle Russian winter, ours won't be a problem. Once put together, it is great to use, it passes through worse terrain without problems, and it's easy even to push it with one hand.

To fold the pram into a Fabia Combi is quite a tight fit - so, because we do drive around the city and also live in an apartment without an elevator (thus, leaving it in the car boot), I would choose a more compact model next time. For occasional trips, or for those who don't use it much on city sidewalks, I would certainly recommend this model - at least in the carrycot configuration.

Since I carry my baby, for the most part, the stroller is not used every day - in any case, there were no problems with it yet, functionally, and it looks like it will last. Our Fjordi is a 2in1 stroller system, and it is even possible to buy adapters for car seats of other brands - at least for our Cybex for sure.
