Stroller Obsession: Micralite Fastfold Super-Lite

It’s no secret that I have a thing for strollers.  I happen to also have a penchant for funky, cool, pretty, useful things.

When the Micralite Fastfold Super-lite arrived from Scandinavian Child at our home, I was very excited.  It encompasses everything that I love in a stroller.

My children also have a thing for pretty strollers (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree).  The only downfall is that they fight incessantly over who gets to ride in it.

It’s edgy, it’s super lightweight, and it folds in a compact, standing position.

It is the lightest stroller, with the easiest drive that I have found.  One hand steering, easy turning, huge wheels in back for uneven pavement or even grass or sand, and is narrow enough to fit through most aisles here in the city.  It is fantastic.

Key Features of the Micralite Superlite Fastfold:

2 position seat
Lightweight aluminium frame (roughly 13 lbs)
Unique one handed fold
Extremely manoeuvrable
Pneumatic tyres
Under seat shopping basket
Adjustable handlebars
Waterproof 300D woven fabric
with TPE coating
Raincover included
Wheel pump included

The mesh seat can be removed and replaced with an infant car seat(the Maxi Cosi Cabrio) to be used from birth.

Both of my children ages 3.5 and 22 months fit snugly and comfortably in the seat.  The breathable mesh, decent sized canopy and two-position seat make for a very nice, smooth  ride.

I’m a big fan of the one-handed fold as well.  It makes for getting down the subway and in to a taxi cab or bus very easy with two toddlers.

This is our go-to stroller for quick trips zipping around the city-especially when using public transportation-but I would definitley recommend the Micralite Fastfold Super-Lite for an every day stroller.

A little more incentive:

Scandinavian Child was generous enough to provide my readers with a 20% off discount code to be used in their online store through September 24th, 2010. – Code: CITY

Scandinavian Child is a fantastic company whose focus is “design without compromise”, where you can find brand names like Svan of Sweden. Beaba, Lillebaby, Cariboo and Anka.  I highly recommend checking out their website.

Disclosure: I received a Micralite Fastfold Super-lite to review for Momma’s Gone City.  All opinions expressed are my own.

  • I like cool lookin’ strollers too. But I must admit, my favorite type of stroller is one that weighs under 10 pounds. When I’m hauling it up four flights of stairs in the families walk-up, I need the lightest thing possible.

  • Hi, we are looking at getting one of these, y only concern is, the max weight on the website says 15kg, my two year old weighs 16.5kg.
    How about your 3.5 year old? Is he over the max weight?
