Review // Cybex Balios S Lux
Things we love

The Balios S Lux is exactly what its name suggests - more luxurious and refined version of the Balios S pushchair that we already know and love. 

There are a few upgrades from the previous model we reviewed last year. The fabrics are new - they are now silky smooth but still soft to touch and more importantly easy to clean! It is a little known fact that the fabrics of the Balios S Lux can be unzipped and un-popped  and put in the washing machine on a 30℃ wash - perfect for any parent as spills and messy accidents are inevitable where children are concerned.

The push of the Balios S Lux is even more refined than before. It feels great in the palm of your hand and the suspension in the wheels makes for easy strolling over a huge variety of grounds. 

The deep basket easily holds all of the parenting goodies that you need to take with you on your travels as well as leaving room for any shopping that you might grab on the way. The basket has a capacity to hold 5kg. Folding this pushchair was so easy. It folds all in one and stands alone when folded. It sat in the car and in the kitchen in between uses and didn't take up a lot of room.

The reversible seat unit has memory buttons to take it on and off the pushchair chassis and an easy recline lever which is operated with one hand for ease of use.

Things to look out for

We love how the tall and wide seat unit lies completely flat making it suitable from birth - although we would highly recommend using the seat with the Cyex Cot S or Cocoon S for newborns to give them a more sheltered place to nestle in. 

Our Verdict

Quite simply, In our opinion, the Cybex Balios S Lux is one of the best all-round pram systems on the market. The Cybex Balios S Lux deserves to be well-known in the world of parenting for its convenience, form, style and function. We can't stress how easily the Balios S Lux makes parenting life on the go. Every aspect of the design is makes is fabulous for a broad spectrum of users. There are no frills to the Balios S Lux, just quality design and a quality finished product - quite frankly, just what all parents need in a pram or pushchair!
