The Cybex Coya belongs to the brand’s platinum collection and is their first ultra-compact travel pushchair combining iconic design with first-class functionality. Designed to appeal to fashion-forward parents, the Coya is sleek, lightweight, super-practical and travel system compatible. We were excited to take a closer look.
If you’re back from your summer holiday wishing you’d taken a better pushchair on your travels, worry not. We have a fabulous upgrade for you! Meet the Cybex Coya, a lightweight and compact travel pushchair oozing in luxury from departure to arrival. One of its standout features is its contemporary design, which exudes a modern and sophisticated charm. The stroller’s visual appeal is complemented by its practicality. This is a stroller that really packs a punch.
When shopping for a travel pushchair, opting for one that can be conveniently stowed in an overhead compartment on an airplane is a smart choice. The ultra-compact Coya fits this bill perfectly.
From birth to approx. 4 years or 22kg, the Coya is hand luggage compatible, so you won’t have to worry about checking it into the hold. What’s more, it’s lightweight, with a quick and easy folding design that allows you to effortlessly multitask your baby, stroller and luggage, making your boarding process a breeze. And it’ll easily fit into any car boot.
What’s great about this travel pushchair is that thanks to its ergonomic lie-flat recline, it’s suitable from birth, so even your newborn can enjoy the ride. The backrest reclines easily with one hand, and together with the integrated adjustable leg rest and snug one-pull harness, your child can lie comfortably and safely from day one.
Back when my two little ones were born, so many travel pushchairs were designed for children aged six months and older. It’s wonderful to see that buggy manufacturers are beginning to recognise the importance of creating seat unit stroller options suitable for newborns. Regardless of travel, this is particularly valuable for parents with reflux babies who may find it uncomfortable to lie flat. Parents (especially those with refluxing babas!) will be overjoyed to hear that the stroller’s fabric covers are easily machine washable at 30°C, so you can keep your pushchair looking, smelling and feeling fresh.
Despite being lightweight and compact, the Coya offers top-tier comfort for both you and your kiddo. The padded seat and adjustable recline lets baby nap on the go without a fuss. The UPF 50+ sun canopy is like a built-in sunshade to keep them cool in the shade with ample protection from the sun’s rays. And the canopy will also shelter your little one from the colder, wetter weather the rest of the year round.
As an ultra-compact travel pushchair, the Coya ticks a lot of boxes, but how does it handle?
Taking it out on the cobbled streets of our local village, the buggy’s manoeuvrability proved to be spot-on, probably thanks to its lightweight construction. Navigating tight corners and crowded streets was no problem, a crucial feature for city living, daily commutes and trips abroad.
The generous under seat basket adds to the buggy’s practicality, so you won’t need to worry about compromising on any of your baby essentials when leaving the house.
From birth to toddler age, the Cybex Coya is travel system compatible, so it’s a stroller that does it all. Here’s a list of pushchair accessories that’ll pair perfectly:
The Cybex Coya seamlessly combines aesthetics with functionality, making it a standout choice for parents. Your daily strolls just got a whole lot cooler.
