Biggest waste of money
I've been using this pram for 9 months now and I can honestly say I hate it. The "reverse handle" is ridiculous. You can't steer the pram properly if you want your baby facing you because the wheels don't have the range of movement required to be able to steer properly. I ALWAYS have trouble collapsing it, it takes 2 or 3 goes before it will fully collapse and in summer this is the last thing I want to contend with. And the basket underneath is small, impractical and hard to put anything in it. Worst pram. I'm so upset I ever bought it and can't afford a new one.

I love this pram it has everything you need
And the reverse handle makes it easy to see your baby. It comes with a rain cover and snack tray which is super handy.
Willing to get rid of it and buying something else ASAP
I read all the reviews and decided to get this for my first born. Not only is this model quite bulky to handle the basket is also very small and not accessible easily when the baby is in reclined position. The feature of reverse handle , for which mainly I opted for this is also not as good. The stroller gets hard to handle when in reverse mode and most of the times I’m making a fool out of myself trying to hop in and out of lifts or trying to turn somewhere. Absolutely disappointed. I can’t even afford to get another pram however much inconvenient this may seem though.

My dream pram - nearly
I had a Steelcraft Agile for my first child after lots of recommendations about how its easy to put away, folds small and light. Only thing was that the handle wasn't reversible. I got the one with the reversible handle second time around. While I LOVED the Steelcraft Agile, i'm not a fan of the Steelcraft Agile Plus Reverse Handle. Its a bit more bulky and heavier than the agile. I also find the handle a bit flimsy, it still moves a bit after being locked in place. I did look at other reverse handle prams however and this one would still be my...top pick. The others were hard to adjust and hard to fold up - even the staff at toys'r'us couldn't figure it out. Only other improvement it would need is a bigger basket underneath but with the style I don't think it is possible and ability to have the back sit up more upright and be able to go all the way down flat. Came with LOTS of accessories which was AWESOME! I do find its a bit hard to manouver when in reverse mode.
Easy to fold, drives well on all surfaces and not much effort to push. can be on the heavy side and when the handle is facing the opposite way can be hard to steer. the reversible handle is a great feature though. the fact that you only have to do 2 steps to fold the whole thing up is great.
Overall good pram i love the reverse handle and my toddler loves the drink tray. It folds down easy and is easy to put in and out of the car. The adjustable handle me being tall is perfect for my height. My only announce is that the storage under the pram could be a bit bigger or shaped better
Great Pram - on the heavy side
We have the agile plus and think it’s great quality for the price
-folds up easily
-denim design gender neutral
-love the reversible handle - so many friends have envied this feature
-heavy (i did some damage post c section lifting it once folded)
-wheels get stuck sometimes
Good pram but bulky
This pram does feel like you are maneuvering a truck at times but it os easy once you know how.
Its not easy to carry or fold away and seems to take up alot of space in the boot.
However I do like this pram and I think once others get used to its bulkyness they will too.
I am happy with the build and the quality is A1
This is perfect pram for any age
It is very comfortable and easy and suits for all ages.We can down it completely and we can also keep it straight.It is also easy to carry and easy to fold.Great Quality.I am so happy with this product by steelcraft.It also comes with most accessories for pram.GREAT HELPFUL.MOSTLY RECOMMENDED.LOVE STEELCRAFT.
We had this pram for 2 years and was pretty good throughout. Only trouble was the brake wouldn’t fully disengage sometimes.
Steering was easy, folded up well to fit in the boot. The quality was there but probably not worth the $700 we spent.
Pretty decent pram but wait till it’s on sale
Love the quality and design
I purchased this for my baby after my friend told me that she is happy with her Steelcraft pram. I loved the design and the reverse handle feature to keep a constant watch on my baby during long walks. I think that this pram is reliable, good design, the baby sleeps int eh pram and is comfortable overall. I am happy with my choice and would buy this again if I were on the market for a new pram.
Improved and perfect
I used to own a steel craft reverse handle with my first baby a few years ago and it was very hard to maneuver, the wheels were going everywhere. Everything else was great. This seems to be a much-improved model. It has all the best features of the previous one and the wheels are fixed and absolutely perfect as well. I am so happy with the pram I take it out every day. I would recommend this pram to every mother.
Great cheaper priced pram
A very sturdy pram that is easy to push.
Quick fold up mechanism and easy to lift with one hand.
Nice big hood that shades baby from the sun.
Recline feature using straps can be quite annoying and it doesn't go completely upright.
Material is not removable so cannot be machine washed but is still easy to clean.
Useful feature with reverse handle
I like the pram because it is lightweight and has a reverse handle which is a very useful feature when travelling with a baby. I found that the wheels of the pram are not that agile and not that easy to manoeuvre in comparison to a regular umbrella stroller. I would still recommend because of the reverse handle feature.

Ok pram, but I wish I bought another model
The pram is easy to fold and not too heavy. It's easy to manoeuvre while pram is forward facing. However once the pram handle is reversed so your child can face you, the becomes difficult. One the handle is reversed the big wheels are at the front and it's quite hard to manoeuvre. I also don't like straps used to recline the seat. A clip would have been better. The pram dies have quite a large hood to block out the sun and it's a smooth ride
Good, budget friendly pram!
The first thing I found when using this pram is the steering takes some getting used to when using the handle in revers as is becomes front wheel steering. So far it seems like a pretty sturdy pram that's big enough to accommodate my rapidly growing baby but I do suggest getting a head support when the prams little occupant is very small as this pram doesn't offer any support. I do like that it is compatible with the steel craft infant carrier/car seat so you can just click them in from the car bs go (and not have to wake them)!

Questions & Answers
Hi, would a steelcraft capsule from 2014 fit a new agile plus pram?
Hi Sarah, thanks for your question. The Steelcraft capsule is compatible with the Agile Plus when you use the adaptors that are provided when the stroller was purchased. If you don't have these any longer we do sell them direct, please give us a call on 1300 303 330. Kind regards, the Steelcraft team.
Why can’t I get a second seat for the agile plus reverse handle pram. Making life difficult now a second grandchild has come along and I don’t really want to go out and buy either another stroller that takes a seat or buy a twin stroller.
