Silver Cross Pursuit

see 5 parent reviews

The Silver Cross Pursuit is a brother model of the Silver Cross Horizon (Go), firstly named the Silver Cross Horizon City. Functionality-wise, it is the same as the Horizon - with the difference of the smaller rear wheels and more urban usability based on this fact. A rain cover, an apron (leg cover), and the soft insert nest are all included with the Pursuit stroller.

The Pursuit is a right-from-birth pushchair that, thanks to its lie-flat position of the seat combined with the newborn nest (cocoon-style insert) included, makes for an affordable while luxuriously-looking urban choice of a pram. Purchasing only the set of the chassis with a seat unit (plus included accessories), the Pursuit is more budget-friendly while being comfortable for a newborn even in the pushchair mode (the seat unit is not a bucket-type - L-shaped - seat); in other words - a one-seat solution for those mums not wanting to store a carrycot later on. Another added benefit of the Pursuit, as well as the Horizon strollers, is the folding with the seat unit attached in both directions - the "clamshell fold."

The Pursuit was available in the Horizon City version before, which, with the Horizon Go model, were optionally combinable with a full-featured carrycot attachment. The Silver Cross brand went to the pushchair-only system later on and doesn't offer a bassinet accessory to it anymore.

parents say thx^^
  • robust
  • sturdy
  • very bulky
  • going up curbs can be tricky

A good all-around pram, and travel system compatible. High-quality finishes and comfy for our son. Very sturdy, probably that is because the push can be a bit difficult when going up curbs. Recommended as a reliable primary pram.

  • great
  • on the heavy side

I srsly love the pushchair it’s been great for 2 years 4 months of our little one (at the end not so often - lockdown...). Still in great condition; we will use it soon for our 2nd, hopefully at least just as long. A downside would be that it’s a bit heavy.

  • Cosy
  • Comfy
  • Elegant
  • Folds easily

I love it. It looks so elegant. It's easy to fold and comfortable for the baby.

I expected more

2

It feels unstable and wobbly. I expected more. I don't recommend it.

  • durable
  • luxurious looking
  • everything you need is included: a changing bag, a changing mat, a drinks holder, a footmuff, a raincover with its little bag, car seat adapters, and a car seat
  • bulky fold
  • basket could be larger
  • think basket fabric
  • not the best to carry up stairs
  • handlebar height only adjusts a few height ranges - not enough imho
  • stones get stuck in the wheel foam
  • frame scratches easily
  • steering could be easier

I liked the weight (for a full size system, it's very nice) when deciding on it. I needed to carry it up a few stairs. Even if not insanely heavy, it is not the easiest to do, and I would probably decide for even a smaller pram next time.

It needs a big boot to be stored in it - it is rather bulky (into a Skoda Citigo, it won't fit). Other little niggles make me think I'd choose something else if I were choosing again.
