This is it, everybody, spring has arrived! It’s finally time to get out and about with your little ones, show them blue skies, pink blossom and yellow daffodils, and listen to the birdsong in the trees as the seasons finally change. The Talos S Lux by Cybex is the perfect companion for outdoor adventures as the weather warms up, and we’re here to tell you more.
The Talos S Lux is Cybex’s new off-road stroller is ready to take on the world. Suitable from birth to approximately 4 years of age, the Talos S Lux is designed to meet every challenge when it comes to family travel. With restrictions bound to be in place for the foreseeable future, we think this is the ideal buggy equipped to explore the world on our doorsteps.
The first impression when squeezing the chassis and the seat unit out of the box was that this is certainly one beast of a buggy. The build was quick and intuitive, with the wheels and the seat unit slotting effortlessly into place on the chassis. Once assembled, you soon realise you’re the new recipient of a fabulous-looking stroller.
The Talos S Lux boasts a large and luxurious seat, perfect for your growing child. The seat also incorporates enhanced side protection to shield your child’s upper body and hips, keeping your little passenger safe and secure during any and every outdoor pursuit.
The Talos S Lux has a fully adjustable ergonomic lie-flat seat unit so you can use the stroller as it is from birth. What’s great is that it’s also travel system compatible, with four different options available to you. You can pair the chassis with the Cybex Cot S, snug Cocoon S or any of their car seats for the ultimate solution to getting out and about with your baby.
The buggy’s durable all-terrain wheels are sizeable and most importantly, puncture-proof which is key for the unpredictable nature of a country adventure. I’ve been caught out before with an off-road buggy and a flat tyre. There was no Green Flag I could call on to come and get me. I limped all the way home worried my baby and buggy were going to capsize, and it was exhausting. That won’t happen to you with the Talos S Lux.
An off-road buggy has to be able to handle cobblestones, forest paths and hiking trails, and the Talos S Lux is designed to navigate all of these with ease. With a smooth all-wheel suspension, the Talos offers an effortless push, even up and down kerbs. This buggy expertly absorbs every lump and bump, so your precious cargo can enjoy uninterrupted naps on the go.
As well as offering your little one the ultimate in luxurious stroller seats, the creature comforts do not end there. The handlebar is designed to be fully adjustable, so you can tailor it to your height. It can be easily extended or retracted on the go, if you switch drivers, as my husband and I tend to do when we’re out for a long walk with the kids.
If you’re planning on a pub lunch stop somewhere along your country walk (once Lockdown allows it), the Talos S Lux has been built to align with standard table heights, so you can pull your child into the table without having to get them out of their stroller.
The windstopper comes with the Talos S Lux as standard and will keep your child warm, providing excellent protection from the wind and rain. There’s no need to buy any additional accessories here.
The Talos S Lux is designed with an extendable XXL sun canopy made of UPF50+ protective fabric, so your baby is safely shielded from the elements. The XXL canopy will also come in useful for the summer too. There are mesh windows situated within the hood for excellent breathability, and they’re great for when you need to take a peek at what they’re up to.
The Talos S Lux offers a practical and spacious shopping basket with room for up to 5kg’s worth of shopping or baby paraphernalia, which is music to my ears. The last thing you want to be doing is carrying changing bags when you’re out for the day on a beautiful spring ramble.
The Talos S Lux collapses down into a free-standing package that makes it so convenient to store.
