The attractive new Recaro Easylife ultra-lightweight stroller is a pusher we've long dreamed of owning, in an extended history of pram ownership.
Strollers have invariably been the choice of parents who want convenience and maneuverability at their fingertips in order to navigate the populated pavements of urban life with their children. This attractive and superbly designed stroller, which is new to Australian shores by seating experts Recaro, (manufacturers of aircraft and motor racing seating worldwide), is the award-winning result of Recaro's expansion into the field of children's car seats and the mainstream pusher market.

There are so many features this push chair owns, that are to be celebrated. For starters, the Recaro Easylife stroller is ultra-lightweight, weighing in at just 6.5kgs. Parents can manage this one easily with just one arm, a feature not lost on mums who juggle their kids, nappy bag, shopping and all of the additionals that come with the role.
We chose the Recaro Easylife stroller in this attractive Granite colour which we think sets it apart in a sea of otherwise black prams. (If black is your colour of choice however, it's also available in this trusted shade.)
The fabric canopy on the Recaro Easylife stroller is flexible and durable, and offers five different positions to keep your child protected from the elements. This has a UPF 50 plus rating, providing excellent protection from the sun's harmful rays. Thoughtfully, the canopy is also water resistant, keeping rain showers and inevitable spills from penetrating the luxe woven fabric. There's also an easy-to-use magnetic window flap that enables parents to keep an eye on their child from above at all times.
The body of the stroller contains several breathable mesh panels to facilitate air flow. For younger children who need to nap, the Recaro Easylife boasts a continuous recline feature. Together, when combined with the canopy, these elements provide a great level of comfort on-the-go for very young children. This all equates to less hassle for you when out and about.
|An included cup holder, safety wrist strap and the easy-fold mechanism are all at your fingertips.|
One very notable aspect of this stroller, is the easy, one-handed pram folding mechanism. Simply slide the lever on the handlebar to unlock the folding mechanism, then twist it forward to fold the pram completely in one swift move. The compact pushchair collapses smoothly for stowage every time.
Even better again, the Recaro Easylife folds down to an extremely small size which is ideal for travel of all kinds, including every parents' nightmare - airline travel!
For parents who want the convenience and security of their pushchair right up to the airline gates and beyond, this is your pram of choice. At only 6.5kgs in weight and free-standing, its folded size is fully-compliant with most airline carry-on baggage restrictions. Folded, this stroller measures just 58cms high by 48cms width. Managing it closed is akin to toting a small carry-on bag.
This lightweight stroller makes outings anywhere a breeze. Public transport trips, expeditions in small cars, outings to busy shopping malls, long walks anywhere and tight spaces of all kinds are each examples of the conquerable journeys and built-in capabilities this pushchair can manage.
Beneath the Recaro Easylife stroller is an included shopping basket for storing your on-the-go essentials. This is small in size, but generous too, given the extensive capabilities of this pushchair which stretch beyond those of the average stroller.
The pusher also has puncture-proof EVA tyres and all-wheel suspension. There is a comfortable footrest and a dual foot brake as well as a swivel lock brake, giving it all the comfort and safety features of a regular stroller with obvious benefits.
Recaro's expertise in industry seating is fully apparent when you take a look at the pram's designer detailing, minus your child. There is ample padding within, as well as easy to adjust shoulder straps to accommodate your growing child. The 5 point safety harness will secure your child in comfort. This stroller is suitable for children aged from 6 months and up to 23kgs in weight. It will see most families through their pushchair years, easily and capably.
The Recaro Easylife lightweight stroller is priced at RRP $499 in Australia. For stockists, please visit The Amazing Baby Company.
