Great stroller for city or suburban living
I originally had a Baby Jogger City Mini GT but it was stolen. I looked at getting another City Mini GT but honestly it was SO heavy and It frequently tipped backwards when the diaper bag was hanging on it, so I decided to consider other options.There are many things I love about this Cybex stroller...It's weight-at 19lbs it feels much lighter than the City Mini GT and I've had zero issues with tip overs. Maneuverability!!! You can tell this stroller is German engineered, The Cybex Eternis M3 can literally turn on a dime. There is a coffee place I like to frequent, that is tight to get in and out of with a stroller...not with this Cybex, it was a breeze. I was able to maneuver so tightly forward, backward, 360 degrees, all one handed without spilling a drop of coffee. When you live in a city and you are using the stroller everyday to maneuver in tight spaces this is an absolute game changer.Great ride on even surfaces, does well with city obstacles (uneven sidewalks, potholes, blocked paths, gravel, cobblestone). I haven't tried it off road at a grassy park yet.Super easy to open and close, not a lot of strength required for either operation...it isn't a necessarily a 1 handed close, but it probably could be with some practice. Super full coverage sun shade-my taller baby is completely covered.Tall seat back and higher weight limit, means my off the chart baby (size wise) will be able to use the Cybex for years to com Convenient and easy to operate foot brake.Good size storage basket and adjustable handle bar for taller parents.Never Flat Foam Filled Rubber Wheels-this is a big one. I HATE plastic stroller tires, they where out quickly, and refillable rubber tires are a pain. The only complaints I have about the Cybex Eternix M3 are minor:The sun shade...it clips onto the Cybex Frame and it seems to have a slight gap where it fits around some of the stroller frame hardware. There is no flap to use to check on baby, there is a way to extend the sun shade even further, that reveals a mesh panel for ventilation. I like this feature, but it would be nice if it had a flap over, so you could keep the sun out when fully extending the canopy.Over all I highly recommend this stroller. I think people considering a City Mini GT should take a look at the Cybex before buying.
ProsLighter Weight than comparable strollers, easy open/close, Top of the line Steering and Maneuverability, smooth comfortable ride, basket size, extended height and weight maximums (55lbs), generous sunshade, adjustable handle height, never flat foam filled rubber wheels.
ConsBelly bar, snack tray, parent cup holders/organizer not included (pretty typical from this higher end level of stroller, but it?s still a con)
Best UsesEvery day use for city and suburban living.
