  • Main seat and tandem not interchangeable

Heavy yet feels a bit flimsy and the design is lacking. I don’t think I could handle a steep hill with both children in. The main issue I have is that the main seat and tandem seat are not interchangeable, so in different scenarios I’ve had to opt for one over the other because I have a car seat with me or I have the bassinet with me and it just one more thing to think about.

If you’re buying this stroller, buy all the additional parts with the initial purchase because SC change the colours all. The. Time.

We have a 2yo and a 4mo who are on the bigger side and my oldest is basically too big for the seat - the harness barely fits and the foot rest doesn’t fold down very far so she’s a bit uncomfortable.

I wish I hadn’t gone for the bucket seat, it just means that folding the stroller effectively does nothing for space saving. I can’t fit the chassis, main seat and tandem seat in the boot of my car and I have a pretty big car.

If the heavier child goes in the tandem seat, facing forward, it makes it quite hard to push.

The fabrics and finish feel nice.

  • Quality material
  • Design
  • Ease of manipulation
  • Non-adjustable backrest in the carrycot

I was choosing a tandem stroller for a very long time. Finally, I decided to purchase the Silver Cross Wave, and I do not regret my choice. Not only it has a beautiful design, but it is also handy, quite lightweight even with 2 children, and easy to handle. The folding is also easy. The shopping basket is spacious, which is an advantage when we go shopping.

The wheels are made of a foam - we will see how they will look after some time. There is a lock feature on the wheels, and the break system is also okay. The chassis is sturdy, so I do not have to be worried that something will break off. The chassis weights 11 kg and the seat unit 3.9 kg, which is equal to my previous the X-Lander X-Move (total weight 15kg). However, the Silver Cross feels lighter to me.

The seat unit is great, and I like the bucket-type of seating, UV protective sun canopy, the ventilation, and the included net and rain cover. The only thing I have been missing at times is the ability to adjust the backrest in the carrycot, which I appreciated with the X-Lander.
