Silver Cross Jet

DISCONTINUED in 2019
see 2 parent reviews

The Silver Cross Jet was released for summer 2018. This ultra-lightweight, ultra-compact stroller is also compatible with a car seat. Thanks to the weight of 5.9kg only combined with the 3D fold, many airlines will allow you to take it on board as a carry-on, making the Jet an excellent companion for holidays or (shopping) trips. Once folded, it can be wheeled behind you like a small suitcase. The Jet also includes a handy cover to keep the stroller clean while you're traveling.

Suitable from birth, this stroller is softly padded and offers a full recline. You can also place your newborn baby into a Silver Cross car seat. With corresponding adapters, other car seat brands with Maxi-Cosi attachments are compatible. From 2020, the new Silver Cross Jet 2020 is available. This re-designed Jet for 2020 introduces 62 small improvements making it more maneuverable, durable, and sturdier while being equipped with a more spacious seat and available in new neutral colors and melange finish.

parents say thx^^

We use it almost every day

  • fabrics not completely removable

Compact and convenient. Stable and nice to push. We use it almost every day.

It doesn't feel that sturdy after a few months of use. The folded size is very nice, though, and the style as well - that is why we bought it.
