Seems nifty but it’s not!

Firstly my front wheel didn’t lock in place and fell off all the time. This was received with horrible customer service. And real struggle. When used in conjunction with the capsule the pram is very bumpy because of the plastic tyres and I would go as far as to say unsafe for a newborns neck. Because of its small size it also feels like it is going to topple over. When used as a pram the buckles always get in the way when placing my child on the seat. The brake is super hard to release especially wearing flip flops because of the force required.

Waste of money

This system is terrible. The pram is faulty. The front wheel didn't lock into place so fell out every time I had to use stairs. Unsafe! We tried to contact mountain buggy about this but with no reply from them. My partner had to fix it himself.

The capsule release jams up, making it difficult to remove and clip is starting split, again unsafe!

Mountain buggy should be ashamed of themselves for selling such low quality, dangerous products that are supposed to protect babies

Such a great little pram

I purchased this pram from baby bunting as a bundle with the capsule car seat. It was budget friendly which helped a lot. It is so easy to fold up and has a very small turning circle. I still currently use the pram with the car seat capsule it's very handy to duck into the shops. The quality it very good we only had an issue with the foam handle cover splitting on a flight when it was 4 days old but I blame qantas for that one. But one thing is that it doesn't have a bar across the front for bubs but I believe you can buy it additionally.

Great for 1 year, then disappointing

We bought this pram mid 2013 and it performed very well for 1 year. It was easy to manoeuvre, collapse and put up, great to travel with and compact for out apartment. At 1 year problems began, the ball bearings fell out of the front wheel, steering was more difficult, by 2 years there was a lot of corrosion on the metal, the wheels couldn't be removed, then both wheels eventually fell off. At 2.5 years the pram is completely unusable. I feel disappointed because I felt like MB was a reliable brand, and the pram was relatively expensive. We lived in the inner city and then in suburban Melbourne and the pram had very normal usage.

Can this pram be used off road at all? Looking for something super compact to take away in our campervan and able to use on bush tracks, beach etc. or is there another one more suitable?
