Best pram everBaby sits up nice and high so saves any back strain plus they can see more. I've used my almost daily for two years and it's still in perfect working condition. Smooth on all terrain and it has a Massive basket which isn't always easy to find. it's only downfall is that it doesn't fold down very compact so you need a big car boot.  Show details

Good but front wheel stability mechanism is a deal breakerFront wheel is the killer. The stability control mechanism is constantly a problem and causes the front wheel and pram to shake. You are continually stopping to fix it whilst running. Wouldn't buy another I'd the didn't change this. A shame because otherwise awesome. Show details

Really like it!We have had ours for quite some time now. It is very handy and easy to maneuver. Folding and unfolding takes a bit of time to get the hang of it. Our kids love being in it. It is a bit bulky though and fairly heavy. The brake is quite tight to put on and release.

Not worth the money in my opinionThis pram cost me well over $1000 with the add-ons I wanted, like the bassinet and belly bar. It does not handle well on different surfaces. I find that one wheel lifts and the pram tilts sideways on some terrain which is very disappointing for a $1000 pram. Show details

Faulty handlebar 5 months oldWe purchased the Uppababy Ridge and less than 5 months old and my partners fingers went through the foam handle bar whilst pushing it. They refused to cover under warranty and asked us to pay for repairs which would cost half of what the pram is worth. Not happy! Waste of money. Show details

Baby_sleeping_in_3_wheeler_pram

Are 3-wheel prams better than 4-wheel prams?

Pros
Can handle harsher terrain than your run-of-the-mill 4-wheeler pram. Smooth manoeuvrability makes them easier to push on rougher surfaces, like dirt walking trails and sandy grass.
Larger wheels make for a smoother ride. They make mounting kerbs and stairs easier, and can help with good suspension, so your baby gets a bump-free ride.
Inflatable wheels are more likely to be an option on 3-Wheeler prams. These provide a more cushioned feel for your little one, compared to a pram with solid rubber wheels.
Cons
Safety concerns sometimes arise with 3-Wheeler prams, as their asymmetrical design means there’s a higher chance they’ll tip over or roll away if left unwatched. Choosing a seat that's low to the ground can add stability and mean that there's less chance of the stroller tipping over.
Bulkier designs make 3-wheeler prams wider, longer and heavier than 4-wheeler prams, which can make them more difficult to handle in public places. While many 3-Wheeler prams are foldable, they may take up a lot of room in your car boot - or not fit at all.
Usually more expensive than 4-wheeler prams, making it useful to consider how much you'd actually use the extra features a 3-wheel pram has, that a 4-wheel pram doesn't.

Jogger Strollers

If fitness is important to you, a jogger stroller or running pram could offer a handy way to slot in some exercise time, while your little one also enjoys some fresh air and a change of scenery.

These specially purposed 3-Wheeler strollers are only suitable for babies six months and older, since babies need to be able to sit up and hold their heads up in a jogger stroller.

What to look for in a Jogger Stroller

  • Avoid overly bulky designs: While jogger strollers are usually designed to be used for everyday use as well as jogging, their sturdy design can make them a mild nightmare to manoeuvre and carry when you're indoors.
  • Lockable or fixed front wheel: This provides stability at high speeds. Most regular strollers have a swivel front wheel- and while this is makes it easier to manoeuvre a stroller on flat, even surfaces, a swivelling front wheel can skid on uneven terrain.
  • Inflatable tyres: Since these are filled with air, they make for a gentler ride with less jolting bounces. However, inflatable wheels can be punctured easily by sharp objects on the path, so be mindful that you may need a puncture repair kit.

Wheel Types

3-wheeler prams are made to traverse a variety of ground surfaces with ease. The type of wheels a pram uses directly affects its ability to do this easily, and conveniently for you.

Solid Wheels · See All

Solid wheels are made entirely of rubber. While this is the type of used commonly in four-wheeler prams, it's often not the go-to wheel of choice for parents and carers with 3-wheelers.

This is because the solid rubber makes a pram heavier, and therefore more difficult to push. If you're on a challenging jog while pushing a stroller, this can be annoying as the heavy wheels offer a bit too much of a challenge and can become tiresome.

Solid wheels also aren't as good for aiding suspension, as they don't cushion bumps in the road as well as other wheel types. This can make it a bumpier ride for baby, especially if you're travelling on uneven surfaces.

Inflatible wheels · See All

Also called pneumatic or air-filled tyres, inflatable wheels are made of a reinforced rubber exterior, and have compressed air inside. The better quality all-terrain jogger strollers are usually design with inflatable wheels.

They're a great option for jogging with on nature trails, as any bumps in the road, whether caused by dips or stray stricks, will be cushioned by the air inside the tyres. This means that baby can stay comfy while mum or dad gets their daily dose of exercise.

Prams with inflatable wheels are equally effective on flat surfaces such as footpaths.

However, because they are filled with air, there's a possibility they'll puncture if the rubber surface is met with a sharp object. Repairing the puncture can be a hassle, especially if the puncture happens when you're far from home and without any tools to fix the problem.

Foam-filled wheels

These are made from a rubber casing, and a foam interior. Foam-filled wheels still provide a cushioning effect for your little passenger. However, they don't come with the added inconvenience of worrying that your stroller tyres will puncture after you spot sharp-looking sticks and stones on the ground.

Choosing a new pram or stroller

Selecting a new pram or stroller for the first time can be a daunting task. If you'd prefer a more thorough breakdown of the different factors to consider before taking the plunge and investing in a new set of wheels for bub, head on over to the Prams and Strollers page.
