Absolutely love this pram, It's so cosy.
Its got so much stuff and, Isn't too heavy for transporting it around.
It has so many functions and, Can seriously fold down to a proper stroller size. It takes a corner of my boot up. Best part, The basket is super strong. It holds heaps!!
I wish I looked in to reviews before buying this pram it’s horrible I hate it so much the wheels and frame squeak so bad to the point it wakes my little one up. I have had it repaired once and it is now doing the same thing again they said it squeaked because hair was stuck in the axel but this new frame has been used 6 times in the shops and started squeaking. I’m going to get my money back I’m hoping and get a new pram because you don’t expect to pay $800 nearly and it to squeak
Don’t waste your time or money on the crap show I bought this pram in November 18 but only started using it march 19
Not quite what I was hoping for
Very hard to manoeuvre one handed and to navigate through tight turns and aisles. Heavy to lift into the back of the car. I feel this pram would benefit from having lighter wheels. Unfortunately I will be selling my
Pram as it was not what I expected it to be when I bought it.
Purchased in June 2018.
Very solid but annoying squeaky sound
We got this pram November 2018 but we started regularly using it from June this year. My partner and I spend lots of time researching to find a good pram. After all those research and trying different prams, we finally came to the decision to get this pram. As we are planning to have second child, this pram looked really good for second seat and also solid and spacious. We are very happy how spacious it is. I use this pram everyday and I can see my child is comfortable even though it took so long for him to like it. There are few things that I ...am not so happy about this pram. First thing is definitely the squeaky sound from the day 1. If we noticed this when we were trying at baby Kingdom, we wouldn’t buy this. And I read many reviews about this from years ago. Shouldn’t have this issue by now. Another thing is when the pram is parked in the bus, the front wheel moves really around to the side when bus turns. Don’t feel much comfortable with this. It will be better if all four wheels can be fixed in the position. Last thing is that the seat can’t really be flat. It’s not a big deal but it would be good if I can make it to flat when my child is asleep in it. Without these three issues I am really happy with this pram but the squeaky sound is biggest issue for me.
Good but not confident I'd buy again
Good pram, easy to steer but heavy when fully assembled and squeaky (even when brand new). I like that it can be rear or forward facing. Love the look of these prams and bub seems comfy from newborn to nearly 1 year old. Very disappointed in how scratched up it gets on the frame, even though I look after it (spent over $600, I'm not going to treat it badly). The front cap above the wheel has come off so you can see the screw and locking mechanism (will not lock). Took it back to Baby Bunting as this happened when my son was 4 months old and sti...ll in warranty, but I was told it was user error and not manufacturing error so I have to pay for repairs. I was getting it out of the car and the cap came off. Not impressed. Looking at it now, I doubt I'd buy the second seat as the baby/toddler sits in the basket which seems weird. Wish we went with another pram that we were looking at. Only chose this over the other one as we had good reviews from people we know.
Great but heavy and bulky
I love this pram. But what I’ve realised is it won’t be great when I am pregnant with my second, i find it abit weighty and not only that the wheels are very large so wouldn’t recommend if you can’t havs a large booted car.

This pram is all you need!
This was the only pram i needed for my son who is now 5!
It was easy to use and pull apart to fit in the car, it went all sorts of terrain - it was great for bushwalks, he was always comfortable and one of the biggest things was when he was a newborn the Capsule went straight from the car to the pram without waking him up!! that in itself was worth every dollar!!!

This pram is pretty good. The only issue I have with it is the size of it once folded. It’s quite big and I find it heavy to put into the back of my car

Love my pram!
I purchased the compact strider with the capsule and bassinet attachments and it is so easy and convenient to use.
I love that I don’t have to wake my baby up to put her in the bassinet or seat, I can just take the capsule out the car and clip it in.
Very sturdy and looks lovely! I don’t agree with other reviews that it’s noisy or scratched up. Very light weight. I get mine in and out of the car multiple times a day and I have no issues whatsoever. And I love that you can purchase the second seat and attach at the bottom. I haven’t personally used it but from the pictures it looks like the child sits in the basket, which I’m not so sure about but could be wrong. I will have to look into that in a few months time when we fall pregnant.

East to use, slightly awkward
Love the pram design and quality. Easy to assemble and use. Pram is a bit bulky, heavy and takes up a lot of room once disassembled. The frame is awkward to place in the car and you have to turn it around so the wheels go in first. Baby appears comfortable but a newborn head insert is needed so babies head does not flop around in the seat.
Great manoeuvrability, smooth ride and suspension.
Overall, love this pram, just a few minor flaws.
Unhappy with black frame
Unfortunately the black frame has scratched quite a bit. We have taken care of our product but unfortunately the black coating is very thin and has scratched off. Will have to colour with a texta

Terrible... so clunky and squeaky!
I am annoyed at myself for not looking into reviews and really researching prams before committing to this one. It's so clunky, doesn't manouver well and has the most annoying squeak when you turn it. I recent purchased a stroller for a holiday and I haven't used my pram since because of how difficult it is to use. So disappointed.
Purchased in May 2018 for $700.00.
Waste of money
Brought this pram 6 months ago after having our second child.
After going from my mountain buggy to this I was very disappointed with its performance. It’s big and bulky and hard to get in the back of the car. It covered do not come off so you can not wash them.
It only goes well over hard soft surfaces, any dirt or sand it just gets stuck. It does not go well up curbs and your child almost flys out the front and 6 months in the two clips which pop out to hold the pram together got jammed and don’t come out anymore so I’m back to my mountain buggy and my 2 year old has to suck it up and walk!
Would never recommend this pram.
I haven’t bothered contacting them as I can not find my recipt
Purchased in August 2018 for $1,000.00.
My strider is 12 months old it has been repaired once already due to the fold handle becoming loose and the frame not locking properly so when your walking one side of the frame would start collapsing. I've always had striders but I can honestly say this is the worst strider I have ever owned. My frame is now creeking when I walk and the fold handles are coming loose again. I feel like I should have spent my $700 on a mountain buggy
I'm so disappointed in this pram. I thought I did enough research to make an informed decision but apparently not! The pram is absolutley shocking on any terrain that is not super smooth - the suspension is non-existent and the wheels literally sound/feel like they are going to fall of when it goes over the slightest bump. Its heavy, the bassinet attachment wobbles like its not in securely (even though it is) the ride for my son is ridiculously bumpy and the front wheels pull to the left. So disappointed. Have only been using it for 5 weeks.
Purchased in November 2018 for $799.00.
Great pram from newborn to toddler, our purchase came with the second seat which will be good for future babies comes in 3 colour options with rain and sun cover
Purchased in April 2018.
I am so disappointed with this stroller. I have been using it for less then 2 and a half months with my baby who is now 4 months old and i wish i had not bought it :(
It is so creaky and really embarrssing to push around. Im constantly cringing when i have to roll it into a quiet space.. honestly wouldnt recommend it.. im so sad because its not cheap and looks beautiful but i just feel so anxious when i take it out because of the noises it makes.. my baby also wakes up in it because of the creaking when i try to roll it into a quiet library as i need to go there regularly for uni and get stares from others around me...
Purchased in February 2019.
Nothing compact about it! It’s a bit bulky and a pain to take apart and put it back together. The straps look super uncomfortable for baby (but baby doesn’t seem to mind) and it starts squeaking and creaking pretty quickly. Smooth ride though !
