The Roan Bass Soft is a higher version of the robust Roan Bass. It is distinguished by the more easily accessible shopping basket as well as by the chassis with a double suspension system. The fabrics of the Bass Soft carrycot and seat unit are available in different color designs of 5 different collections. The Basic Collection comes in neutral, less bold colors. The Summer Collection is, on the contrary, very bright and bold. The Eco Collection features leatherette fabrics, and the Bass Soft from this collection is often referred to as Roan Bass Soft Eco. Jeans have inspired the Denim collection in melange. There is also the elegant Chevron Collection in muted colors with a stripe accent on the fabric. Unlike The Bass, the Bass Soft does not offer the option to customize the base of the carrycot with a print. It is either grey, black or white, color matched with the chassis of the chosen color design.

A spacious egg-shaped carrycot provides the child with enough of room. The coconut fiber mattress in the carrycot can be inclined. The seat unit is fully reversible and can be reclined flat. A soft cotton seat liner is included with the seat. The extendable hood comes handy, especially during summer months. The hood features a sun visor and a part which can be taken off to let some fresh air in through a ventilation panel. The shopping basket is accessible either from the top or by unzipping it from the side if the seat is reclined. The Bass Soft is a priced reasonably and comes with an array of accessories including a rain cover, a mosquito net, an apron, a changing bag and a blanket. The adapters for a car seat (own brand or a different brand) are also available, which gives you an option to create a travel system.

parents say thx^^

Very stable, durable chassis, and lightweight.

4
  • All-wheel suspension plus a central one
  • Good value for money
  • Front wheel distance too short, it gets stuck

:thumbsup: Good choice. Very stable, durable chassis, and lightweight.

The springs dampen vibrations well. One disadvantage we have (only just found) is that the size of the front wheels is larger than the distance between them. This can cause them to collide when pushing. I have also noticed this problem with other large wheeled strollers...

  • Eco-leather was easy to clean
  • We passed through harsh terrain as well as through snow
  • Air-filled wheels stayed inflated the whole time - no need to reinflate, and we never had a puncture
  • A spacious carrycot is an advantage with a bigger baby
  • Many accessories included - rain cover, leg covers, blanket, changing bag - and the price was very nice as well
  • Robust and heavy
  • Started squeaking quickly
  • The carrycot was kind of loose on the chassis - it moved up and down slightly, and the head of the baby was lower than its legs
  • The huge, bulky seat unit part never got used

It served us while we had it, but we were glad to get rid of it. It had its advantages - mainly the fact that it went through most terrains (even snow), but it was very heavy, and it started squeaking quickly.

  • Great all-terrain wheels
  • I liked that the pram was 'tall'
  • I hated that the plastic joints started to make cracking noises after only a month - when my daughter was sleeping, it was noisy, waking her up
  • The seat unit was getting jammed - after inspection, I noticed the rear bar was crooked; after getting repaired, the problem disappeared
  • Maintenance (we had the Denim Grey) was super easy, but the seat unit always had visible fingerprints on it, which I found very impractical

An average stroller system for me. I certainly wont be buying it for the next child.

  • Quality materials
  • Optimal size of all the click-on parts (carrycot, seat unit, car seat)
  • Easy to keep clean - always looking like new
  • No fading of the eco leather
  • Fantastic wheels, good for any terrain
  • Comfortable for the baby
  • Just for bigger car boots (I cannot fit it in my sedan, only in our combi)

A fantastic stroller system. Very easy to keep clean (I have it in the grey eco leather version) - no dirt stays on since I only need to wipe it with a damp cloth. The wheels can tackle any kind of terrain - cobbles, our holey, bumpy yard which is in bad shape because of our building of the house, and also dirt roads. I love the all-wheel suspension as well as the optimal size of the carrycot - when I compare it to the modern, tiny carrycots where you barely fit a three-month-old these days...

Top class for me

I har the Roan Bass Eco Leather - and I find it to be a great choice! Incredible ease of maintenance, and visually one beauty of a pram :-) Those excellent wheels go through anything - even demanding surfaces. Top class for me.
