Cybex Eezy S

Made for urban parents, the Eezy S Twist is an agile city stroller that offers premium travel features from four-wheel suspension for smooth rides on all terrain to a fully reclining backrest for long naps. The one-hand folding mechanism turns this sleek stroller into a compact package within seconds while leaving your other hand free. In its compact, self-standing fold the Eezy S Twist can easily be stored anywhere and is small enough to be approved as carry-on luggage on planes.

How did this product make your life easier?

Chelsea: This product makes my life easier as it folds to such a small compatible size which easily fits into my small boot, as I drive a Citroen C2 Cool so struggle to fit my normal buggy in, with the Eezy I fit it in my boot so easily and with spare room. It is also to easily fold down and fold out being able to do it one-handed if needed.

Laura: The Cybex Eezy S was very easy to use out of the box, and it was relatively easy to put up and down. The seat looks comfortable, and my daughter slept comfortably with the seat in recline. It is not as compact as some other ultra-compact strollers but is still space-saving when storing in the house or in the car boot. It is easy to use and manoeuvre, and feels solid in construction. It’s light, which made it easy to use on public transport and up/downstairs. The basket is also a good size for storage. It has quite long straps that my daughter was constantly putting in her mouth, but it appears easy enough to remove the seat and wash in the machine to ensure good hygiene. The construction of the stroller and harness design made me feel confident in the safety of my daughter in it.

Natalie: This product was very easy to get going without the box. Assembly was simple, and the stroller was ready to use in less than 15 minutes. Living in a small house, space-saving is critical, and this stroller has a relatively small footprint and stands upright easily. It was easy to get on and off the bus, as well as to go out in smaller cafes/shops, as manoeuvrability through tight spaces was straight forward.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Jessica: I would recommend this product for very similar reasons as to above, it’s lightweight so easy to lift in and out of the car, easy to put up and fold down, easy to stow away into small spaces or for a car such as our mini with a small boot as it’s only 1 unit rather than being multiple units that clip together.

Lucy: I would recommend this for someone going on holiday or who do not often use a pram but wants one in the car for errands etc. However, the only good feature I found was the compactness and I would not recommend it to someone who wanted to get a lot of use out of it and so I think it is actually quite overpriced for what it is.

Sarah: I would recommend this product to a fellow mum because it is extremely easy to put up and down with one hand. It feels extremely light which helps when putting it up and down. As it is light it means I can put it up and down quickly which is a real advantage. It is also really easy to handle one-handed because it is so light.

Would you choose this product to win?

Alexandra: This product is small and quite lightweight making it a useful travel stroller. I don’t think this product should win as there are several things that I would change to make it more user-friendly. There are other products (by this brand and others!) that feel more robust yet maintaining the small size and weight.

Leeann: This product is a very strong contender however I do believe it still has some improvements to make. For example, I absolutely love the lightweight and slim frame, the fact that it is so compact when folded down makes journeys less stressful and time-consuming. However, the forward-facing seat is not great for younger babies, as with the static footrest and absence of a bumper bar. However with that being said, my little one felt extremely comfortable enough to fall asleep on both long and short journeys - the ride was extremely comfortable with the suspension, lightweight and slim frame. I would say I did struggle with the brakes - I could never tell when they were on as the front was never suspended plus the folding mechanism was quite tricky to get the hang of, I struggled to do it one-handed at times. But it is one stylish and amazingly easy to transport travel system that did make some of my journeys that bit easier.

Faith: I would choose this product over others because of the ease of use. The mechanisms aren’t fiddly, it isn’t very heavy and you don’t have to have a completely empty boot to fit it in the car. The basket is a decent size and it folds down with ease. However, I think the sun hood could come down a little further to shield the baby and some of the fabric doesn’t feel the best quality considering the price.

What changes would you make to this product?

Daisy: If I could change one thing it would be to make the basket underneath bigger. If the basket were bigger it would be an all-round great pushchair that I would consider buying myself, but when you’ve got a few bags and a change bag that you can’t fit under the buggy or hang over the handle it’s not great. The last thing most mums want to have to do is struggle to carry bags while trying to push a stroller.

Rebecca: If I had to change one thing I would have to change the design of the hood. As it stands, the hood does not currently provide enough protection from the sun. This means that you would need to ensure that you have a sunshade to attach on to it for any sunny days, but this is another piece of equipment that you have to buy and also travel around with. I think the buggy would benefit from an extra section that can be unzipped to be extended further.

Holly: I would change how tight the straps can go as I could not get them tight enough to feel like my daughter was safely secured in. She is 8 months old but quite small for her age and the stroller is sold as from 6 months old but I couldn't do the straps up anywhere near tight enough and with it only being forward-facing I didn't use the stroller very much as I was worried she might be able to get her arms out and then potentially fall out and was also able to lean quite far forward.
