Quinny Zapp Flex Plus

see 5 parent reviews

Quinny Zapp Flex Plus is the highest model of the Zapp X edition. It is a successor of the four-wheeled Quinny Zapp Xtra/Zapp Xtra 2.0 featuring high-end elements. Compared to the inferior Zapp Xpress or the Zapp Flex, the Zapp Flex Plus features a four-wheel chassis with a single, a higher-positioned, colorful handlebar. The wheels are more robust than those in inferior models; the stroller is nonetheless easily maneuverable even when fully loaded.

The reversible, bucket-type seat unit is identical to the Zapp Flex. You can tilt the seat in both directions from an upright position to a full recline. The breathable fabric of the backrest is slightly reinforced. Another original feature is the non-slip, rubber harness padding. The seat is spacious even for bigger children. When paired with an optional newborn insert, a car seat or the Zapp Lux carrycot, you can use the Zapp Flex Plus from birth. The carrycot can be added directly onto the chassis. Thanks to memory buttons, you can remove it using one hand. The carrycot comes without the hood as the hood from the seat unit will be shared with the carrycot. On the other hand, the bumper bar comes with the carrycot and needs to be transferred onto the seat unit when needed. Alternatively, you can purchase the bumper bar separately. Many other accessories are available: the summer canopy with mesh, a changing bag or a changing backpack, a travel bag and an extra shopping net that can be added to the chassis. As all of the Zapp X models, the Zapp Flex Plus can be fully customized. You can build your model by choosing the color of handles as well as colors of the seat unit, carrycot, and the Maxi Cosi car seat. In 2018, the Quinny Zapp Flex Plus was also released in a special collection in a collaboration with Rachel Zoe - the Luxe Sport Edition.

parents say thx^^
  • Extandable hood
  • Large, spacious seat
  • Good even for light terrain
  • Perfect manipulation thanks to the single handle
  • I can't seem to find a bumper bar to purchase
  • Wheels are not quiet

I own it for about a month. I am very happy with the driveability, it can tackle even light terrain, unfortunately, the wheels are not completely quiet. The seat is very spacious even for large toddlers, they can nap comfortably inside. Thanks to the extra bag we can carry even a larger shopping in this pram.

A fantastic pushchair!

  • compact
  • roomy seat
  • nimble steering
  • style
  • canopy
  • basket size and accessibility

A fantastic pushchair! We love it. The only negative would be the smaller storage basket that is also not the easiest to get into because of the frame bar. Otherwise, strongly recommended.

The driving is incredible

Expectations met 👍 The driving is incredible.

I didn't expect to love it this much

  • Stable
  • Large canopy, great coverage and sun protection
  • An easy, compact folding system
  • ...and the looks 😍😍
  • I'd maybe like an adjustable handle

I didn't expect to love it this much, but I do. I recommend it to all my friends. It is stable while agile, and the features are well thought-of. An adjustable handlebar would be nice - I am tall and happy with the height, so maybe short mums would mind... IDK 😉 It's truly awesome 😊

  • Weight
  • Folded size
  • Maneuverability
  • Suspension
  • Wheels rotating

We owned it with the bassinet. The driveability on smooth surfaces was good with it. The frame is lightweight while stable, and the wheels are larger in size, so you can get over pretty much anything... in theory. Over time, the wheels started to turn randomly a bit, and the pram felt like a piece of luggage, but maybe lubricating them would help... or if there was suspension... I mean, over a very bumpy road, you (and the little one) could feel every "jump".

Anyhow, we sold it afterward. We got a larger pushchair (a Stokke Trailz) and I missed the nice size of the Zapp Flex+ all the time since...
