Nice luxury stroller
The Cybex Balios M Stroller is a nice gold tier stroller. The recline is flat enough to use from birth, it's actually more flat that my bouncy seat and rock n play sleeper. A bassinet is not necessary for this stroller, I will be using it from birth. The assembly took less than 15 minutes, put the seat facing outwards first and mess with the recline before facing it to parent. The wheels are quite impressive they are sturdy and did great over playground mulch on my walk. I would say this stroller is outgrown shortly after your child reaches 3T clothing due to the depth of the seat. In height, this stroller could fit a child until about 4. The stroller is not difficult to fold once you figure it out. At 9 months pregnant, I was able to do so one-handed.
Pros- The adjustable handle height is PERFECT. I am a tall woman right at 6ft and the handle extended fully is fabulous.
-The canopy is NO JOKE. It is massive and provides the option for airflow. The height of the canopy is great too. My 3-year-old has about 3 inches of clearance while sitting in the seat.
- The basket is amazing. It will fit a full sized diaper bag along with any shopping bags. There's no need to hang your bag from the handle. You can easily access your bag from the front or the back with one of the largest storage baskets I've seen yet.
Cons- I do not like the feel of the foam on the handles.
- I prefer a 1 step fold. However, the only full sized all terrain folds I think are better would be the Britax B-Ready or the City Select style folds. The fold is very common now with luxury brands and is still an easy 2 step process that can be done 1 handed.
Best UsesIf you like the Britax B-ready but want something slightly more narrow and do not need the expansion option this is a great option. It's a little more sleek, highly attractive, & more exclusive.
-Parents who want something stylish
- From birth to about 3-3.5 years old. (Recline is flatter than a rock n play sleeper)
-Those who are looking for great sun protection.
