Cybex e-Priam Review
Things we love…

We've been fans of the Cybex Priam for many years. It's superb design offers luxury in abundance for baby and parentsand now there is an ‘e' version. The e-Priam features the same seat unit and carry cot as the Priam - as well as being tall and wide, the ergonomic hinged seat unit that moves at the base when being reclined made our little tester's ride comfortable at all times. The extra-large extendable hood was really handy not only when the sun shone but also when the wind and rain came out to play. 

The newly designed harness buckle is one of many details that give the Cybex ePriam and Priam a certain va va voom. 

For newborns the e-Priam and Priam offer the most luxurious levels of comfort in the form of the Lux Carry Cot. The ventilation panels are very useful to ensure air circulation around baby and encourage a safer sleep environment - plus they give a view of the world younger passengers don't typically get. But if a bulky carrycot isn't for you, the Lite Cot offers a great alternative option.

Of course it would be wrong to complete a review on the e-Priam without mentioning the electronic motor that is designed to take the effort and strain of pushing up and down hills and over uneven ground away from the pushchair driver. 

To activate the motor on the e-Priam, all you need to do is click the blue switch that is next to the left hand rear wheel upwards with your foot. You can see the lights next the switch come on. That is all you need to do to activate the motor, the rest is magic! Or at least it feels like it! The motor is operated by sensors so that it kicks in whenever it feels any sort of resistance on the handlebar. This is great as it means it helps you to power up hills and over rough cobbles but it also helps to hold back the speed of the pram when going down hills. 

The motor is battery powered and charging it is as easy as charging your smartphone. You can just pop the battery off the back axle or leave it on and plug it in - taking approx. 6 hours to charge.

We only ran out of charge on one occasion and that was purely our own misjudgment but on the whole the battery lasted for around 8 hours. Definitely fine for day trips out and daily use - just don't forget to charge the battery on an evening!

We promise it is not a gimmick, you can really feel the pushchair moving itself to release the pressure off the pushchair driver.

Things to look out for…

There aren't any major negatives to shout about for the e-Priam. The rear axle is slightly chunkier than the Priam due to the motor being attached and although not strictly advised by Cybex, we were always aware that there are a number of complex and very sensitive motors in the handlebar which activate the motor and so we found ourselves being very cautious when folding and storing the pushchair - we didn't want to knock them. Although we are pretty sure they are safe and sturdy and there is no need for that.

Our verdict…

The e-Priam is a world class piece of parenting equipment. If you're looking for high-end style and performance, the  Cybex e-Priam could well be the right pushchair for your family.

The luxurious aspects of the seat unit and chassis combined with the convenience of the automatic motor makes for an exceptional pushchair and pram. You will certainly be the envy of parents when they see you pushing this up the high street.
