I was very curious about the stroller because it is very often glorified. But I have to say that I don't understand its popularity. I bought it for the car as a second hand pram for a few Czech crowns. It is very light, it fits nicely into my short Fabia. Compared to our three-wheeler City Elite from Baby Jogger, however, it's a complete rattle, which is difficult to ride with even with our 8,5 kg daughter, let alone with our 17 kg son.

It is difficult to climb into the storage basket at the bottom. I like the relatively large seat surface, the leg positioning, the fairly long sun canopy, the storage pockets. The fabrics, although it looks very cheap (we have the basic version), will hold up and clean well.

Unfortunately, the driving characteristics are not very good. In addition, I am constantly kicking the brake and it has a very poorly positioned center of gravity, for my taste - exactly the same as our old Britax B-Motion 4 Plus. We have a version with foam wheels that rattle when riding. There is absolutely no cushioning. I wouldn't buy it for full price, I'll pass on the few hundred for occasional travel. As a main stroller I would not want it. For its selling price you can get much better strollers - for example Joie Litetrax or Mytrax. The low weight is not really a benefit that would positively affect the riding characteristics.
