Cybex Priam 2022 LUX Carry Cot
The LUX Carry Cot is unquestionably large and luxurious, and negates the need for a harness in those early months, which would be a must if you used the Priam 2022 seat unit or Lite Cot from birth. Available in the same fabrics as the seat unit, you of course have the option to match or choose a different design to your main pushchair. The LUX Carry Cot for the PRIAM has always been impressive, but CYBEX has enhanced its features to align with the launch of the Priam 2022 model. The quality, style and finish are immediately evident, and the addition of a pocket in the foot of the carrycot, although it’s not large, is useful for keeping your phone and maybe your house key close at hand.
The foam mattress is thick and both comfortable and supportive for your precious newborn. The mattress cover is super-soft, the top being 100% cotton. You can wash the mattress cover at 30 degrees, which is always a plus! At the head of the mattress is an extra removable cotton bumper, so should your baby roll, their head is gently cushioned against 100% cotton. It also adds a little protection from the breezes if you have the head of the carrycot unzipped to reveal the integrated mesh ventilation panel. For winter walks, the LUX Carry Cot provides a cosy environment for your baby. However, if using it indoors, or when summer approaches, it has a number of features to keep your little one cool. The canopy comes to 90 degrees with the addition of a small pop-out visor - adequate to protect from the elements whether shower or shine (a raincover is included for wetter days). You can lift the back of the canopy to reveal a meshed panel and if this does not provide enough ventilation, you also have the option to zip the back of the carrycot to expose a secondary mesh panel around the baby's head. Not only does this give your baby the ventilation they need on hot days but it also gives them a panoramic view of the world!
Historically, the LUX Carry Cot has slotted directly onto the chassis but with the 2022 version you do need to use adaptors, included in your pushchair box - these are multi-functional as they will also take your compatible infant car seat. The benefit of this is that the carrycot is now in a higher position, bringing baby closer to you. To attach, you simply pop the adaptors onto the struts on each side of the chassis and then drop the carrycot on. To remove, the memory buttons on each side just need pressing in one at a time, making it a one-handed operation if required.
