If you’re a new parent planning your first summer holiday with a little one, one of the first conundrums will likely be, which travel pushchair shall I buy? We’ve road tested the new Cybex Orfeo, and here’s why we think the Orfeo is the travel accessory to treasure this summer.
Cybex Orfeo is an ultra-lightweight city stroller suitable from birth to approximately four years of age or 22kg. Weighing an astonishing 5.9kg, the Orfeo is Cybex’s lightest stroller yet. While it might be lightweight in terms of kg, the Orfeo isn’t light on functionality. On the contrary, this is a reliable pushchair that packs a punch.
Thanks to its featherweight qualities, the Orfeo practically leaps out of its box, with wheels that slot quickly into place. And that’s it, you’re ready. Unless you count snipping the tags off the 5-point harness or unwrapping the rain cover.
Oozing quality and style, the Orfeo offers a true luxe appeal. It’s made from breathable, machine-washable fabrics complemented by a leather look handlebar, so your little one can travel in box-fresh style.

A travel pushchair is going to rack up some mileage, so little ones need to be comfy. Whether you’re boarding a flight or exploring a busy city, Orfeo is a compact buggy that’s big on comfort and adept at navigating busy situations.
Probably the most frequently asked question when shopping for a travel stroller is, “Can it fit in overhead storage?” and the answer to this is a firm ‘yes,’ it’s designed to be compact and carry-on compatible, so you don’t have to worry about checking your pushchair into the hold.
Orfeo offers a quick one-hand fold into a neat package that’ll slot easily into overhead storage, and the good news? At 5.9kg, you won’t need to work out at the gym in order to lift it. Car boots love Orfeo too, as its compact shape leaves plenty of room for your luggage and other essentials.
Thanks to the pushchair’s nifty carry strap, you can sling the buggy over your shoulder when you’re getting off the airplane or whizzing up underground escalators, all with your baby snuggled safely under your other arm.
You won’t need to worry about investing in a carrycot thanks to the ergonomic lie-flat seat. Orfeo has been engineered specifically for newborns and for catering for those emergency naps on the go – whatever their age.
Newborns are younger babies are kept safe and sound thanks to Orfeo’s one-pull harness offers a baby-hugging fit, so you’re little one is secure and comfy on every trip. Orfeo’s integrated leg rest will support your baby as they grow, giving you plenty of bang for your buck as this travel companion takes you from newborn to preschool age.
Cybex Orfeo goes one step further than most travel buggies with adaptors that make it travel-system-ready, so you have options. Click on an infant car seat for a quick trip to the supermarket or for those times you can’t possibly interrupt a nap.
Here’s a list of accessories that’ll pair perfectly with your Orfeo, making this an all-year-round go-to travel or city-living companion.
