Silver Cross Spirit

The Mios-inspired, reversible compact star
.eli
see 5 parent reviews

The Silver Cross Spirit is a comfortable and lightweight urban stroller combining all the currently trending advantages. In addition to the modern, toned-down design, the stroller can be folded one-handedly, even with the seat attached in any direction to a compact size. The Spirit introduces the well-ventilated mesh backrest, perfect for hot days. You can cover the mesh with the soft seat liner that is included with the Spirit. This summer-ready stroller also features UV protective fabric.

Paired with the optional baby cocoon, the Spirit is suitable from birth. Later on, the cocoon can be transformed into a winter footmuff. Reversing the seat without the need to push any buttons is another extra feature of the Spirit.

The wheels are smaller in size, but thanks to spring suspension on each of them, the Spirit offers a smooth urban ride. You will also appreciate the spacious, easy-access shopping basket and the rain cover and mosquito net included with the stroller. The adapters for Silver Cross Simplicity and other car seat brands with Maxi-Cosi type of attachment are available to buy optionally. The Spirit makes an excellent companion for those parents looking for a practical, compact urban solution from birth without the need for a conventional carrycot - nice for, for example, a spring baby.

The wheels are simply fabulous

  • look

  • nice&compact
  • leg rest could be longer

We own the Silver Cross Spirit, and we love it. The wheels are simply fabulous. I highly recommend it.

  • compact
  • pretty
  • quality fabrics
  • small seat
  • not all-terrain
  • expensive

Nice urban "vehicle" for the beginning. I find the seat a bit too short, mainly in the leg rest area. I would guess good for a year and a half, small child maybe two years...

My husband hates how low to the ground it is; he says it looks like a doll pram and also, ho kicks the rear axle (he's tall). I do love the looks, it pushes nicely, but the hood in the reclined position is not covering the baby enough.

Nice, but a bit pricey for what it is

Nice, but a bit pricey for what it is. A beautiful urban stroller for a mum that needs to see her little one. I like the one-hand, compact fold, and it's spacious enough for my boy. Wheels are what I like the most.

  • compactness&fold
  • weight
  • basket
  • ventilation
  • possibility of soft insert carrycot
  • quality (and pretty), thick wheels
  • canopy could be longer, especially while in the lying position
  • not much for harsher terrain, but the occasional bumps are alright

I love how small, lightweight, and compact it is. It seems to me a bit like it's a Cybex Mios ripoff but from a well-established brand as well as very well-made. The people from Silver Cross took a good design and put there something from themselves. Happy about the ventilation backrest, very nice, quality wheels (more robust than the Mios') with suspension, and the larger basket. I don't think one could fit a 22kg child there, but it is spacious enough. I'd also make the canopy even larger, but I'd do the same with the Mios.
