They are also easy to push and maneuver around shops, airports or busy streets.

Lightweight – A stroller that is lightweight is easy to lift and carry, making them perfect for people that have to store their stroller on public transport or lifting them in and out of their car boot.

Great for travel – As compact strollers are easy to store and are lightweight they make travelling, at home or away, a breeze. Fitting easily in to the boot, the footwell of the car, or folding to store on a busy bus or train can be a really convenient feature for a stroller, and some of CYBEX’s latest products even fit the overhead storage on a plane or have a convenient storage bag or carry handle. For a frequent traveler the most convenient stroller has to be lightweight and compact.

Adjustable – Whether it’s the backrest or footrest it’s important that your choice of compact stroller can adjust to keep your child comfortable.
