2010 Stroller Preview: Silver Cross Surf Pushchair
Built to an extremely high specification, the Surf is the world’s first stroller/pushchair to use ultra-lightweight magnesium alloy castings! Over one third lighter than aluminum, magnesium is normally used by aerospace companies as well as top-of-the-range motorbike and car manufacturers, such as Ducati and Porsche.
Due to this innovation, the Chassis and Seat Unit are extremely light and fold down to a size that will fit with in the narrowest of hallways and tiniest car boots (even fitting into a classic Mini). This stroller has two advantages over other combination systems: it has the only Seat Unit that can be used from birth (without a carrycot), and it has a uniquely smooth air-spring suspension system complete with front forks and a rear wishbone, allowing it to glide over the ground. The exceptional maneuverability results in a ‘pushing experience’ and ride that is so smooth that it feels as though the stroller is literally “surfing” the terrain.
The seat unit can face forwards or backwards, the handle is height adjustable and the pneumatic rear tires are filled with a puncture-free foam. A padded Seat Unit, Carrycot and Baby Nest ensure the ultimate level of comfort for your child.
Surf’s Seat Unit and Chassis are available in three colors – Linen, Slate and Black – and come complete with the Baby Nest, Rain Cover and Insect Net. For further coordination, the Hood, Apron, Seat liner and Parasol have been packaged individually so that parents can choose whichever colors they want, from Chili, Black, Lilac, Tangerine, Lime, Slate and Linen.
Anyone wanting a Carrycot (that comes with its own hood and apron) or a Ventura Plus 0+ Car Seat, which instantly turns Surf into a fantastic travel system, can add them for a further £150 and £115.
Cross Snugs (sleeping bag style footmuffs) are also available in a range of colors for £35.
