CYBEX has added a new stroller to its GOLD collection, the Eezy S +2, a travel system designed to take you from the car to the streets in style.
The Eezy S +2 is the successor to the Eezy S and the Eezy S+ and comes with even more functionality and features.
We’re here to break it down for you.
The CYBEX Eezy S +2 is billed as a great option for family travel as it can be used from birth as a travel system. Pair with the Cot S and any CYBEX car seat, and you have a three in one frame that will grow with your child.
The guys at CYBEX really know how to pack a box. The Eezy S +2 is a decent sized buggy with the ability to fold down into a compact shape that slides out of a fairly small box with no excess packaging.
The box contains the stroller, bumper bar, footrest, wheels, and a large sun canopy complete with UPF50+ protection.
Simply click all four wheels onto the chassis and you’re ready for action.
We took the stroller out on the mean streets of Surrey to test out its credentials, and put both our kids (aged 1 and 3) separately in the hot seat, to see how the Eezy S +2 fared. Here’s how we got on…
Made using premium fabrics, the Eezy S +2 has been built with an emphasis on comfort and is suitable from birth to 4 years.
The easy to adjust recline strap was just that – really effortless to use – even with the kids in situ. The ability to recline the seat to a fully lie-flat position was so handy as my one-year-old still naps during the day. Equally, the padded seat’s most upright position was perfect for both kids to sit up and take in the world around them.
The new integrated bumper bar and adjustable leg rest provides ergonomic support in both sitting and lying positions, so they could fully enjoy the ride.
The Eezy S +2 is built with decent sized wheels complete with trendy white rim for a slick finish. The first thing my husband noticed on unboxing (he always insists on putting these things together) was how brilliant the suspension looked, comparing it to the brilliant Balios S Lux – and we weren’t disappointed.
The S +2’s all-wheel suspension evenly tackled the range of terrains we explored on our first outing. From suburban streets to woodlands and stony farm trails around Norbury Park, the buggy’s steering felt light and intuitive, offering fantastic mobility.
The buggy is sturdy but still fairly lightweight, and its one-hand fold is straightforward and pretty seamless. The buggy compacts down into a self-standing package with no fuss. This makes it easy to store, both at home, away, and in the back of the car.
The stroller’s shopping basket can hold up to 5kg, so it’s pretty robust. This came in handy when the kids filled it with rocks for the make-shift pond we were building in the garden last week on our staycation.
The Eezy S +2 is available now in a range of colour choices including Magnolia Pink, River Blue, Navy Blue, Soho Grey, and Deep Black.
