The big names of the buggy and car seat world won’t disappoint this year, with a fresh selection of travel system compatible buggies rolling out…
Jané will add to its huge range to in 2010. There’s the Slalom Reverse, with a seat that can be used forward and rear facing. It’s a 3-wheeler, all-terrain buggy, with front disc break and break lever on the handle. Also, there’s no front bar under the buggy to knock your feet on as your walking. It’s compatible with the new Jané Matrix Lite car seat, Jané Strata car seat, Jané Transporter carrycot and Jané Micro carrycot. It will also appear in a 4-wheel version, known as the Unlimit.
The new Cross will also be on its way. This is touted as being “the most compact all-terrain on the market”. We can’t wait to put it to the test!
Jané also has the Rider. It has a forward and rear facing seat unit, with an easy click-in system to change direction. It’s compact, has adjustable suspension, a break on the handle and it folds with seat unit on. The Rider will also be compatible with the Jané Matrix Lite car seat, Jané Strata car seat, Jané Transporter carrycot and Jané Micro carrycot for those seeking a travel system.
But this isn’t all that Jané has to offer – stay tuned for more names, pics and specs to drool over!
Recaro, know for its quality car seats, could release a new travel system early this year, called the Akuna. Mid-year, we could see the end result of Recaro teaming up with Babyzen: an design-savvy, travel system compatible 3-wheeler buggy that’ll be called “Babyzen by Recaro”. Specs we heard mentioned included a solar power light, a weight of 10kg, with a carrycot and infant car seat able to be teamed with it.
Maxi-Cosi also have a hot newcomer – the Mila. It’ll weigh a light 7.5kg and be suitable from birth. As you’d expect from Maxi-Cosi, it’s travel system compatible. And not just with the CabrioFix, but with the company’s brand new Pebble car seat, which is due out in March.
In the first few months on 2010, Britax is set to have a new range of four buggies hit the market. There’s the B-Lite, a lightweight stroller; the B-Mobile, teamed with Baby Safe Sleeper car seat to be a lightweight travel system; the B-Smart, a 3-wheeler travel system; and the B-Dual, a tandem. The B-Dual can be purchased as a single pushchair (forward and rear facing), with the second seat purchased when baby No. 2 arrives. It can be folded with both seat units on the chassis, and both seats are also suitable from birth, so can be used for twins. If you like the sound of these, we've got plenty more pics and the latest info on the B-Dual, B-Lite, B-Smart and B-Mobile.
Hauck have created the Malibu, a buggy with carrycot, which can be transformed into a travel system by adding one of the new Hauck car seats.
The Hauck Capri is also now out. It’s a bit like the Quinny Buzz in folding style. Just add a car seat to create a travel system.
Hauck also has a third new buggy in its range – the Manhattan. It’s said to have an easy to adjust handle, and feature a carrycot that converts into the seat unit so there’s nothing bulky left to store when your baby’s ready for pushchair mode. Again, add a Hauck car seat and you’ll have yourself a travel system.
Woo hoo - I've been after a Bebeconfort/Maxi Cosi Mila for about a year (they've been available in mainland Europe for a while now) but I've not been too impressed with the colourways. Now that they're launching in the UK the new options are much better - can't wait to get my hands on one of these!!!
Hi MFM mums,
We've managed to get a sneak preview of the Jané Rider and Jané Cross, before they've hit the market!
Our lucky reviewer put both buggies through their paces with the new Jané Matrix Light car seat... make sure you check out the exclusive reviews of the Jané Rider Matrix Light travel system and Jané Cross Matrix Light travel system, and tell us what you think.
