  • design
  • spacious, breathable, comfortable seat unit that lays flat
  • soft, quality suspension
  • no stones in the wheels even after longer use
  • compact fold
  • low weight
  • comfy carrycot
  • I'd appreciate a longer sun visor on the carrycot, mainly in summer
  • some could be surprised by the front axle being wider than the rear one, which makes the stroller more stable, but the turning circle wider
  • not-so-easy removing of the car seat adapters
Since I first saw the Mios (just being announced), I knew I have to have it. Although it is a more expensive stroller, it was - and still is - worth the money. The design is unrepeatable and beautiful, reminding of the Priam, but not the same. I bought it in the Cashmere Beige color, which looked soft and modest - great for both a boy and a girl. When assembling the stroller out of the box, all went smoothly except for the canopy, which I managed to thread right on my third try 🙂 The chassis is solid and equipped with a nice suspension (I can even rock my baby slightly), and despite the small wheels, we pass bumps in the road (or grass) relatively easily.

The seat unit is unexpectedly spacious and can easily handle my older, three-year-old son. It is possible to adjust its position from fully sitting (very upright) to full lay-flat. Two in-between positions are ideal for a non-yet-sitting-by-itself child, or a baby with reflux.

The carrycot is a good, average size, although, at first sight, it may seem small-ish. My (over 4 kg at birth) big little man fit in it in 7 and a half months - with a winter footmuff! We switched to the seat unit because he was trying to climb out of it, even though I think I could fit him in it for at least a few weeks. What irritated me the most was the car seat adapters - they work well, but they need to be removed with force, just like the removing of the car seat from those adapters. If the memory buttons were also on the adapters (just like they are on both the carrycot and the seat unit part), the whole system would be perfect. The stroller is very compact after folding, and also it's lightweight and practical to use in the city. Great as a second stroller, but for urban moms (like I am), also as an only stroller.
