Would not recommend
I’ve had the pram for years now, and hate it. It’s SO HARD to steer. Especially when you put the a kid in the second seat. Folding it is a pain because the front wheels have to go a certain way.
My boys chewed the leather bar that is in front of them.
Putting the second seat in is tricky and not a quick thing to do.
Cleaning it is a mission as well.

Strider compact top seat
I have two strider compact prams. 1 a 2013 and 1 a 2015. The 2015 prams top seat catches as I move through the seat positions on both pram frames. Why is this and how can I stop it as I can't picture a baby liking being jolted around when thensrat is moved.

Lightweight and easy to use
We bought this pram as a spare for our daughter, and I loved it. It is very light and easy to use. Also easy to clean! Would buy it again!

Absolutely love it!
We bought the strider in 2018 for my daughter. We bought it knowing that we would have children in the future so loved that it could fit two. This year we had twins and panicked because we needed a pram to take our twins. It turned out that the strider could fit two capsules on it meaning it was absolutely perfect for our twins. It is not side by side meaning we can actually fit in doorways and are able to get around easily. The frame is a tad heavy but that’s because it is so sturdy! Would definitely recommend it!

Perfect pram!! However we want to use a Maxi Cosi capsule ONLY!!
Can I use a Maxi Cosi capusle?? I don't want to hear they "have not been tested". Steelcraft and Britax do not have great reviews or safety ratings on their capsules so therefore I will NOT risk my childs life. I have heard by numerous people that you can use a Maxi Cosi capsule with the pram which is what I want to do as it has a five star safety rating and have the best reviews. However can you use universal adapters for the pram? Can anyone help?? We are desperate. I would rather spend an extra $30 on a capsule and have it safe for my child ...then one where their heads roll around and the seat has to be propped up by cloths because of the design. I have NO complaints about the pram, we are expecting bub in October and come from a very small town so need to order our capsule ASAP! Thanks for reading any help would be appreciated.

It's good but not compact
It's a great sturdy pram, great when it's up and in use however, it takes up a lot of boot space and is quite complex to lift in and out of the boot. I found it more cumbersome than a small stroller.

Fantastic pram, wouldn’t buy anything else!
I absolutely love this pram, I’ve had it for 9 months now and would never buy anything else. My baby has liked this pram ever since she was a newborn. I love how there’s the ability to attach a bassinet, capsule and second seat to this, as well as having the main seat face either forwards or backwards. I have never used this rain cover or mosquito cover, but it is handy to know that it’s there. I really like how the handle adjusts, as well as being able to lay the main seat up or down along with the foot rest separately.
This is a tough pram ...that can be put through its paces and you don’t have to worry about it falling apart (however don’t try pushing it in sand, it gets stuck). This pram has excellent suspension, making it perfect for bumpy terrain. I love how easy it is to push down on the pram handle to lift the front wheels up to get up a gutter, for example. The only downfalls about this pram is that it is hard to manoeuvre in small shops/tight spaces, the wheels are squeaky sometimes and it takes a bit of figuring out to be able to fold the pram up quickly (took me a while to figure out that the pram had to be dragged backwards prior to folding so that the front wheels would fold in properly). Also the pram is a little on the heavy side. Overall I would highly recommend this pram, especially for the price!

Ok pram but wish it didn't have the leatherette handles and bumber..
It's a good pram in general use, however the leatherette design is not great... 1st the bumper bar started to peel .. not practical, my son bit into it and right away ripped a piece off and now it looks cheap and tatty I've had to buy a cover for it....and now the parent handle leatherette part has started to peel ever since it was in the boot of my car on a warm day, it dried the leatherette material up and as soon as I took it out my boot the handle area cracked and has continued to crack all over and looks so unsightly... I would have much p...referred it to have a foam/ black handle like the old model. I know it sounds like a petty complaint but its not nice to walk around with a pram that has peeling leatherette. :( also the tiniest little scratch will show the silver colour of the frame beneath the black painted frame .. just not a great design. Practicality it is good though, especially as a tandem (baby and my almost 3 year old) but design wise not so much. I believe the newer model has replaced these features with a more practical handle.

Incredibly handy and compact
Was great to see my child through their newborn, infant and toddler years. Easy to use and easy to pack away after use. Great value for money and looks very nice.

Perfect for all occasions
We bought this pram and it was above and beyond what we expected. It was easy to assemble and able to fit in all cars from small to large. The adaptors for the capsule made a smooth transition from car to pram. It has advisements for every new mum and dads height. It was easy to control and smooth. The under compartment made it easy to shop with.

Good sturdy pram
It’s a good sturdy pram and the fact it’s higher than most means you can wheel it right up to a table and it’s a perfect height. Can be tricky to fold down and you have to wiggle the wheels

This pram is a great price but has a few issues.
Firstly, the pram is too heavy, especially for a mum that has had a c-section. The front wheels are extremely squeaky. It does not steer in a straight line and also very hard to steer with one hand. Also, the harness is very hard to click in and unclick. Not a fan of this pram apart from the price. Would not buy this brand again.

Love my pram but wish it was a little more “compact” like the name says
I love the pram itself it looks smart and is easy to steer. Would be good to have a small storage pocket for phone/keys on the back of hood maybe or small satchel around handle because the basket is quite low and I prefer my phone and keys in my personal hand reaching space as waking etc.
I have an i30 car and pram takes up nearly my whole car boot. So it’s not exactly “compact“ in size
Oh and I have to unclip the holding shut mechanism while up in car when removing so not to scratch Off the black powder coating. And when collapsing I have to keep it up and pull it backwards standing again so not to scratch the powder coating

Questions & Answers
Hello, are there adaptors that will allow a maxi-cosi micro ap capsule to attach to a steelcraft strider compact deluxe edition pram?
Hi Ashleigh, thanks for your question. We don't have any adaptors available to allow compatibility with the Maxi Cosi Micro AP capsule and the Steelcraft Strider Compact Deluxe Edition pram. I would suggest that you contact Maxi Cosi as they maybe able to assist. Kind regards, the Steelcraft team.
Hi I have a strider compact deluxe pram and was wondering does a compact plus second seat fit it?
Hi Elise N. Thanks for your question. The Strider Plus second seats are not compatible with the Steelcraft Strider Compact Deluxe prams due to the width and connections being different. Kind regards, the Steelcraft team.
Does anyone know if a strider compact top seat would fit a strider plus base. Ours is starting to split in the fabric and a SC top seat has become avail but I want to make sure before I purchase it.
Hi Girlfriend158, thanks for your question. For spare parts, pricing and availability, please email email@example.com and provide your cat number and batch date from the underside of your pram. Kind regards, the Steelcraft team.
