We've had this pram for a few years now and it is such a fabulous buy. We have also recently bought the wave double. The Pioneer is so easy to use and the fabrics are just beautiful and like no other pram out there.

Love brand sliver cross
I have 4 children at different ages so I have had lot of prams my youngest child 20 months old and I went brought sliver cross pioneer because it comes with everything you need ie car seat pram bassinet like that i could change from car seat or bassinet if it was nice day I would have bassinet on pram frame but if it was raining I would use car seat just click it into frame off I go without waking up my son. Liked that I could change Position of forward facing or outwards and when they older I could use pram same way everything was easy to tak...e apart put back within minutes. I had matching bag and parsol that matched lovely sky blue pram. everyone would comment on my pram. Love large basket at bottom and adjustable handles everything zips off so you can pop it in wash love love love it

My favorite baby purchase
We purchased the silver cross pioneer eton edition in 2016 for our first baby. It never skipped a beat, never let us down and was always a Pleasure to use and pack into the car.
It’s smooth, it’s easy to use, seamless all around.
We made the mistake of selling it and trying another brand for our second born in 2020. What a mistake! If I only I had the budget to replace the silver cross I would in a heartbeat.
A brilliantly crafted pram that’s worth every penny, highly recommend.

Products are great. Value be careful as after purchases price goes down. And even tho delivery just arrived they do not match the price change nor let you know re sales. Like many other companies who honour price change with in time frame . Silvercross do not. Customer service poor dont care already got your money. Just be careful.

Special edition orkney
We wanted a pram with everything and we found it with the Orkney special edition. I needed one that had a large carry space underneath. It does and yes the room to get things from it with bassinet was awkward and hard to reach in. However we purchased the extentions from website and it's so much better. My Baby loves the bassinet which is super soft.. I recommend putting something where baby's head lays incase they bring up milk or sweat a little while on adventures. I loved that it was a different colour to the plain cream or blacks out there from other pram companies. The only downside is it's only a single pram. Would love to see brackets available to make it a double option.

Not suitable for any ground other than flat such as shopping centre
Not worth the price. For a pram this expensive you would think It would be suitable for a concrete path - wheels ongoingly swivel between any lines or small bumps in the path. When I emailed customer Service about this issue - I asked if I locked the wheels (well then I can only go straight?). When I stated that wasn’t a solution, I never received any response back. Poor customer service and should be way better quality for the price. This pram would be extremely unsuitable to run with - frustrating enough walking on a path.

Everything good except handle leather and wheels.
Handle leather is very cheap material especially for the amount of money spent getting it, over time you will see the leather starts to peel and i also have a cheap pram that last longer and until today my cheap pram still better then my expensive silver cross pioneer. Also too low and basket not big enough when seatis parent facing. The wheels are cheap and hard to turn at times.

Love everything except the wheels/drive.
I have been using the Silver Cross Pioneer Limited Edition for 10 months now. What I love is the huge basket that fits a decent size shop, I don’t drive so this is a great feature; you can easily change seat from mum to forward facing; peek a boo window; mesh window in the hood for air circulation; large canopy and extendable sunshade; lux and (I imagine) comfortable bassinet; the Pioneer comes in beautiful designs. The only downside is a big one for me. It was advertised as having all-terrain wheels which is a huge part of why I bought it. Unf...ortunately it only feels good to drive on an ultrasmooth surface like in a garage or shopping mall, otherwise the wheels feel very rickety and unstable on uneven surfaces. I nearly tipped my baby over head first on an uneven footpath which was terrifying to say the least. The wheels have jarred similarly, yet less dramatically, several times. I recently used my friends pram briefly which isn’t much to look at but my gosh the suspension felt solid and the ride smooth. I thought wow, I’ve been missing out. I bought this pram as there was a fantastic sale on and my close friend owns one and couldn’t stop raving about it. Next time I’ll be trying the pram first hand, and there will definitely be a next time as this won’t be my ‘forever’ pram. Pioneers look great so don’t be sucked in by the sales, try it first.

Handle peeling, wobbly wheel
Pram looks great but over time the quality definitely isn't there. The handle on our pioneer has peeled completely off and we can't use the belly bar as my daughter has started peeling it off there also. The front left wheel shakes or wobbles sporadically and starts to fold under the pram when pushed onto uneven surfaces. Silvercross will charge for these to be fixed and shipping at my expense. It's really disappointing.

“Superior fabric” balled within 3 months
The SilverCross is a beautiful pram, has a good steering circle, is sturdy and is great for long babies.I was disappointed that the fabric in the bassinet balled within 3 months, to which SilverCross stated was wear and tear, which I found surprising as the Pioneer Special edition is advertised as using superior fabric, we weren’t using the pram everyday and can a newborn really cause wear and tear.
The pram is definitely better on smooth pathways. Sometimes the pram would get stuff on a crack in the path.
Really hard to get items in and out of the pram when the bassinet is attached however much more room when the seat is attached.
Overall it’s a pretty good pram, and is easy to use.

Such a nightmare - didn't get the pram, can't get a refund
I had several issues with Silver Cross. First, they were at the PBC Expo and said that the discount for the pram was almost $600. But their website just keeps jumping from one sale to the other, so the discount I got was actually $90.
They failed to deliver my product (it's been 13 days so far), and yesterday I've decided to cancel and request a refund. They keep stalling me saying that they will process my refund, but they can't even send me proof of refund or anything. They said they would action it yesterday, and nothing.
Said the same thing...

Ordered a capsule from Silver cross and has been over 6 weeks and still haven't received it. Been days without replied from silver cross and we have sent over 50 emails and received the same crap several times from apparently the 1 office person, [name removed]. Is that bad we have had to put a fraudulent credit card claim in with our bank. Shocking service. And constant lies from [name removed].

We got the fancier version direct but as a demo model (cheaper). Couldn’t tell it had been used or even taken out of the box. Within a couple of weeks a guard on the bottom basket fell off but other then that has been a dream to own. Just a warning it is a large pram and you’ll need a big boot lugging the pram around but it’s so beautiful to push and the moment it doesn’t bother us. I adored using the bassinet and was sad to switch over but baby loves it. The option to have mum or world facing is fantastic. As baby is only 8 months we still use...the boot protector on the pram which secures him in nicely when he’s upright watching the world. Basket is Awesome for when I walk to shops and can hold a decent amount. The matching nappy bag is a cute touch. It’s a pram that makes you feel like you are pushing something grand

Great product we're really glad it was recommended to us by a friend and we're definitely passing this down to our pregnant niece who'll be able to use this beauy
Beautiful quality but lacks logical design
This pram is very good quality and uses lovely fabrics. Looks great, pushes nicely, not too big when folded down, quite light, nice colour choices, comes with bassinet and seat. BUT now I have used it for a few months there are loads of design flaws.
You cannot access the basket underneath when the bassinet is being used. You literally have to remove the bassinet to get to your nappy bag and can’t put anything in it out while on the go.
The cup holder makes the pram so wide that you don’t fit through doors. I opted not to use it.
The mesh...panel for airflow on the bassist is right behind their head and so the baby gets a breeze on their head. This wakes her up. Better to have a mesh panel window up higher. The way the cover and handle work together is very annoying. When the handle is attached it gets in the way of seeing your baby. But when it is not, there is nothing holding the cover off the baby so it falls down on top of her. The cover is also really hard and annoying to move when getting baby in and out as it has weird slide on fixtures hidden down the side that are fiddly and hard to do. All in all I wish I had test driven more prams to compare. It is a beautiful looking pram and great quality, feels and looks amazing but unfortunately it is not 100% functional. Hopefully functions better when we switch to the seat!

Questions & Answers
I have the adapters for the maxi Cosi capsule which is compatible with my silver cross pram. Just wondering when putting the capsule out of the pram, do the adapters stay fixed to the capsule or to the pram? It seems when I leave them on the pram the bassinet doesn’t slot into them.
Has anyone found a bassinet stand for the pioneer bassinet? I have seen the stand for the wave etc but doesn’t look like it can be adapted for the pioneer.
