Steelcraft Agile Plus Reverse Handle

4.1 from 20 reviews

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.

Purchased in May 2018 at Toys R Us / Babies R Us Physical store for $399.94.

Awesome Pram

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.

Good pram

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

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

Pretty good

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 this stroller

Reverse handle stroller is very convenient to keep an eye on the baby The stroller is easy to maneuver and easy to fold and pack in the car. The wheels are steady and easy to push around, not too bulky, just right for the shopping center or light walks outside.

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.


Great affordable pram!

We have used this pram with both our kids and we love it. For peace of mind I need to be able to see my children when they are in the pram so this reversible handle pram was a must for us. It’s easy to fold up and down and fits fine in the boot of our family car.


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.


Best pram for my little bub

Easy to manuever and light pram. Using this pram to my newborn baby and very happy that seat can be recline that baby can lie down and can change to rear facing. Easy to use for our daily walk around the boardwalk and in the city. Little bub loves it a lot.

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)!


Overall ok

The pram is easy to manouver but if you reverse it then it will be hard to manouver. So paying $100 extra for the reversible is not worth it as we end up not using it. the color us unique. It's also quite heavy. About 10 kg or 12 kg. Can't quite remember but easy to fold


Absolutely brilliant design with quality structure.

This style of pram and its forever cherished brand name is so easy to maneuver and suitable for short to long periods of use at ease. With the Agile Plus's compact light weight design and features, I must say it is a very simple task when it comes to use and non use. The Agile Plus gives you more opportunity to gain that forever needed space in either your vehicle or home when it comes to folding and storing because of its unique structure and flexibility. The solid steel frame and strong techniques of material completing this pram is of high quality, which promotes a safer and more comfy ride for your little ones.


Great pram great price

It is pretty easy to manoeuvre in stroller setting a bit harder with handle in pram setting but still quite good.
Fold away is easy with a 1, 2 step.
I'm happy with it in every way except the handle has a little too much movement when locked into place. When you stop snd start it moves up and down quite considerably


Its ok

Easy to steer easy to fold but the back rest is flimsy and my baby falls to the side all the time so until he can hold himself up im not gunna like it he has no support and i have to try prop him up on the side with a blanket( glad i bought secind hand and didnt pay 500

Questions & Answers

Hi, would a steelcraft capsule from 2014 fit a new agile plus pram?
1 answer
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.
