Sneak preview – 2011’s new lightweight buggies

An early bird look at the hot new lightweight buggies due out this year.


Maxi-Cosi Noa lightweight buggy

The Maxi-Cosi Noa has us excited by its claims. We’ve been told it weighs 7kg and can be folded with one hand in 4-6 seconds. And it also takes just one hand to erect it again. With the price tag likely to be in the region of £150, and a June release date, we can’t wait to test this one out in time for your summer holidays.


Quinny Senzz lightweight buggy

The Quinny Senzz isn’t a lightweight holiday buggy, but a fully-fledged, reversible seat, travel-system compatible option that weighs 8.6kg. It also boasts a compact fold and stylish flat-look frame. A serious contender for easy everyday use.


Silver Cross Zest lightweight buggy

Silver Cross, one of the big names in British buggies, is set to release the Zest this May. We’re told the Zest will offer a one-handed umbrella fold, and be lighter and nippier than the Silver Cross Pop. It has a lot to live up to!


UPPAbaby Gluxe lightweight buggy

Due to roll out in July, the UPPAbaby Gluxe is a seriously lightweight buggy, tipping the scales at a mere 5.1kg! We’re told it has front and rear suspension, multi-position recline and an adjustable leg rest. Also nifty for summer hols will be the UV shield that extends from the hood and the included raincover – it’s Britain after all! Expect a price tag of around £150.


Jané Nanuq lightweight buggy

If you loved the Jané Sonic, a buggy that earned a massive 4.5 stars in our review, chances are the Nanuq will hit the mark for you. Suitable from birth, this lightweight has a compact, shorter umbrella fold than most similar buggies. It has a viewing window in the hood and a larger basket than its predecessor, the Sonic. We anticipate it to retail around the £200 mark, and to be released in just two or three weeks.


Concord Quix lightweight buggy

So, technically speaking, the Quix isn’t a new buggy for 2011. You see, it has a launch date of Autumn, err, 2012! But we couldn’t resist telling you about it a whole year early. With a weight of around 7kg, Concord says the idea is for the Quix to be spacious inside for your child, but compact outside, as you’d want from a lightweight option. We know very little more that we can tell you, so watch this space…
