Warning mamacitas, we have a new pram obsession. In fact, we’re not doing any work at MD HQ, we’re just putting our babies in the Bugaboo Lynx and wheeling them around the office. Tight turn with a toddler clawing at our legs? Too easy GF. Done with one hand whilst downing our fifth latte. SLAM DOWN!
The Bugaboo Lynx is a #lightweight, in fact it’s the lightest full-size pram on the Aussie market, but don’t be fooled by its waif-like frame, it’s strong enough to help you effortlessly navigate life on-the-go.
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s release (1 October), Bugaboo’s increds Senior Product Developer and papa to 10-year-old Yasmijn and eight-year-old Lard, Aernout Dijkstra-Hellinga, let us take the Lynx for a spin… and if they want it back, they are gonna have to fight us for it!
The 6 features we’re most excited about on the new Bugaboo Lynx
1 // It’s light (like crazy light!)
Weighing in at only 9.4kg, the Lynx is made with high-grade aerospace aluminium, so it’s super tough without being heavy, which means you can lift it in and out of the car or take it up and down the stairs so much easier. The pram also has a compact one-piece-fold or can be folded down to two pieces for extra-light handling and compactness in car boots (leaving extra room for shopping… #winning!)
2 // There’s room to grow
You can start using the Lynx from when your bebe is a newborn in the bassinet and it will see you through until they reach 23kg in the seat. Then underneath the seat, you’ll find a 10kg basket where you can stash all of your essential items… nappy bag, toys and even groceries.
3 // There’s room to move
From coffee shops to change rooms, tight spaces can be a nightmare to navigate with a pram – especially when it’s fully loaded. But the streamlined design of the Bugaboo Lynx means it has a responsive, one-handed push, making it easy to manoeuver in tight spaces… Yaaas! And the puncture-proof wheels (7” in the front and 11.4” at the rear), combined with suspension gives your child a bump-free ride, wherever you go. No complaints here!
4 // Your bebe will be the king/queen of comfort
When it’s snack time, keep the seat upright for feeding on-the-go and then easily lay the seat flat for a quick snooze. The 3-position recline works when your bebe is facing you and when they’re looking out into the world with the reversible seat. And the adjustable 5-point harness (that never requires re-threading) will keep them safe and comfortable, at any age.
5 // You can protect your little one from the sun
Taking a stroll outdoors? No worries. The seat is covered by an extra-large, extendable sun canopy with a UPF 50+ and offers protection against harsh rays as well as sleep tranquillity for naps on the go.
6 // It’s super stylish
Staying true to Bugaboo form, the Lynx is one of the coolest prams out there and comes in four colour combos – black or grey melange fabrics on black or aluminium chassis. Prices start at $1499 and it’s available to buy online or if you want to try before you buy, check it out in store at Baby Bunting.
