Silver Cross Wing 2

The fabrics-updated ultracompact with a bold sunvisor design

see 1 parent review

The Silver Cross Wing 2 is a 2021's update of the original British ultra-compact Silver Cross Wing. The Wing2 is not too different from the first generation – the difference between the Wing and the Wing 2 lies in a design update (new fabrics and patterns on the sun visor especially), a comfier, ergonomically padded seat fro an even higher comfort of the baby, and a new wheel design with an improved, softer rear suspension with visible springs. The Wing 2 from Silver Cross now freestands when folded and pulls along suitcase-style if you use the bumper bar as a handle.

The extendable canopy offers UPF50 protection and enhanced ventilation as well as an upgraded pop-out sun visor. The seat unit only faces the world but offers a complete lie flat usable even with smaller babies. It also sports an easy-to-use, well-padded harness belt system. The Wing 2 doesn't offer a travel system option and is only supplied with a rain cover - all other accessories are to be purchased separately.

Too loose a frame for me. I'd pick differently if I were to pick again.

Your questions about the Silver Cross Wing 2

1)

Hi there,

I’m wondering how long the backrest is on this stroller? A lot of travel ones seem really short? Thankyou

Hi, Kim,

You are right, most travel strollers have a shorter seatback, and this is no exception. The seatback of the stroller is 40 cm tall, and the overall length is 83 cm (width 31 cm). Don't expect much in terms of space, it is a small stroller, and not too roomy either.
