Looks good, but the brake issue made it an expensive mistake.

Summary: When I tried this pram in the shop it felt wonderfully light to push and looked very stylish. I'd been finding it hard to choose from my well researched shortlist of prams, but after seeing the Neo (not on my list) I was sure I'd finally found the right one. Unfortunately, shortly after I started using the pram it became apparent that there are some serious and dangerous issues with the chassis.
Pros: Looks stylish. Fairly good folding and unfolding mechanism. Good suspension - feels very light to push providing you don't have a problem chassis. The optional carrycot (Scout) is a generous size. My baby loved to look at the stickers on the inside walls of the carrycot.
Cons: * Serious and dangerous brake problems - the brakes come on by themselves without warning. * The front swivel wheel often lock without warning and are hard to unfix again. * The swivel on the model I have doesn't work evenly, so the pram often pulls to one side or the other * Other things which didn't seem like a big deal when I was choosing the pram, but turned out to be really annoying... - There is essentially NO storage - It is pretty wide (just over 60cm) - I nee...
Summary: I bought the complete system (neo, proton & ion) late 2008. My son was born 01.01.09 and by end Feb the brakes had begun to fail they went on whenever they felt like it and sometimes it took me 15 mins to get them unlocked - very embarrasing!! The final straw was when the brakes failed when pram was in my garden and it rolled off the patio onto its side on the lower level of the garden. Thankfully my baby want in it at the time.
