Silver Cross Reflex

see 3 parent reviews

The Silver Cross Reflex is a high-end umbrella stroller with a high weight capacity. The stroller is named after the reflective elements on the wheels and the hood. Older versions of the Reflex featured LED lights on each side of the stroller, but these were removed later on due to frequent failures.

Typically for an umbrella stroller, the rather spacious shopping basket has only limited accessibility. The height-adjustable handles offer comfort for all parents. The seat unit can be reclined fully. Thanks to the newborn insert and the optional car seat, the Reflex is suitable even for newborn babies. For maximum comfort, a newborn nest is available, with which you can use the stroller in the parent-facing mode while your baby is lying on a flat surface. The seat features an ergonomic, curved shape. The mesh separates the seat from the reclining mechanism, ensuring better airflow and more comfort for the passenger. The washable seat liner is included. You can unzip the ventilation panel to allow airflow while extending the hood.

parents say thx^^

This is a very comfortable stroller for both the baby and the mom. The seat is softly cushioned and lies flat. The canopy can be unzipped and pulled down to protect the child from the wind, creating a pleasant sleep environment. The stroller is easy to manipulate as well as to fold. It does have a suspension system, and even comes with a footmuff and a rain cover included. We used it for my daughter's napping all the time, and I can highly recommend it.

  • Lays flat
  • Spacious
  • Large canopy
  • Lined apron included
  • Rain cover included
  • Reflective elements
  • High weight capacity
  • All-wheel suspension
  • Double-sided seat liner included
  • All fully washable
  • Colours stayed even after washing
  • Fantastic to push
  • Adjustable handlebars
  • Adjustable leg rest
  • Lightweight
  • Can get through harsher terrain
  • Long after folding
  • Hard to access the basket when the baby's sleeping

A great buggy. Large and spacious for the little one to sleep in - and the lay-flat is ideal for that too. Superb, large canopy. Nice details and quality. Thanks to those reflective elements, we were really visible in the dark. Lined leg cover included - and a rain cover as well. There's also a double-sided seat liner. Wheels got suspension, and the weight capacity is also perfect.

  • spacious
  • high weight capacity
  • easy to push
  • lies flat
  • easy maintenance
  • perfect canopy
  • after folding it is quite long so doesn't fit in every car

I was extremely happy with this buggy. We bought it in a hurry before our holiday, but I believe I would not have chosen anything better anyway. It is spacious, comfortable for the child, and it offers a full recline. The backrest is made of some airy but solid material, and it nicely supports the back (not like the Peg-Pérego buggies I tried). It is suitable up to 25 kg - not only in load capacity but also in the true size of the child - we tried to carry a 4-year-old, and the buggy had no problem.

It is also great that the seat has an actual, separate padding, and when it gets dirty, it is not necessary to wash the entire covers. However, if you do need that, the textiles can be removed entirely. It features a bumper bar in front of the child, which you do not have to remove when folding. Finally, the canopy is absolutely perfect, and after unzipping, it pulls down almost to the bumper bar. The chassis is quite high, and the handlebar is height adjustable. It is easy to push with one hand if needed. The shopping basket is average. However, it has support inside, so you don't drag it on the ground.
