CYBEX Libelle Stroller Review

The Cybex Libelle is a unique and innovative best stroller to take on your travels with you. 

There is no doubt about it that the Cybex Libelle is convenient, best pink baby stroller and as a parent convenience is a luxury. The seat size and width was great for testers of all sizes and ages. The harness adjusted easily and the partial recline was easy to operate. The adjustable leg rest is a huge bonus for smaller babies and provided that extra little bit of comfort when they were napping. We loved the hood as often strollers of this size skimp on the extra features such as viewing windows however the Libelle hood not only looks great but does its job well too.

Further, the wheels are well engineered as we expect from Cybex and are great for strolling smooth surfaces – perfect for airports, pavements and strolling those holiday village streets. The front wheels swivel which means manoeuvrability is great.

Functionality

The super handy Libelle is the perfect travel companion to sling over your shoulder for short and snappy trips. The extra small fold can not only be your parenting party trick but it means that you can drive your baby straight down the aisle of a plane and pop it in the overhead luggage compartments on nearly all airlines.

Final words

As an occasional use travel stroller the Libelle is one of the best baby strollers. If you are hoping to use it day in day out for long walks into town then you may need to double check that the wheels can withstand this wear. If you are planning on strolling along rough coastal paths or along grass this might also be a point to note as the Libele copes far better over smoother surfaces.

The higher seat weight limit of 22kg sounds appealing but the design of the chassis meant we did feel a little uneasy about popping kerbs and cornering with a heavier toddler in. Our final note is that the Libelle is not suitable from birth as it only has a partial recline, however this recline is super for naps for babies from 6 months upwards.
