Summary: This pushchair is stylish, a nice design and easy to manoeuvre however we returned it as we were disappointed with the recline feature and the upright position. As a previous review has mentioned the upright position is still laid back so my 8 month old grandson wasn't happy sitting in it as he couldn't see around easily and wanted to try to pull himself forward. The recline options are also minimal and i wouldn't really describe it as multi positions.
Pros: Easy To Manoeuvre, Lightweight, Smooth Ride, Stylish
Summary: OK, this is a great lightweight stroller for what it is. HOWEVER, the seat does not sit fully upright and is not comfortable for an older child. I can see how it could work for a baby, but not for toddlers! I'm not sure what child would like to sit in a reclined position while out and about. I actually sent it back to Maclaren to see if it was a user error, but nope- they said this is the way this seat is.
Pros: Easy To Steer, Lightweight
Cons: Cumbersome, Doesn't sit upright, Hard to fold
Summary: Our 1 year old loves it more than I do! We've had Graco's with our other 3 children and decided to go with a different brand for our 1 year old. Wish it had a cupholder and front bar. The underneath basket is a little hard to get to and I don't like it that if you want to recline it you have to unbuckle the buckle that holds it up. For the price and brand I would have expected more.
Pros: Easily Stowed, Easy To Steer, Lightweight
Cons: Basket hard to get to, Hard to adjust, No cup holder, No front tray
Summary: Took me ages to pick a buggy finally settled for this one. My little girl is 1 and she cannot sit up the adjustable strap at the back just doesnt tighten enough and she has got to lie back all the time. Only bought it three months ago and need to buy another one now!!!
Summary: I wouldn't recommend this stroller as both sides of the seat tore apart with only been used two times. It is very light and easy to open but it was very disappointing to experience that. Our baby is only 28 pounds and it was supposed to hold up to 50 pounds.

Excerpt: Disappointing. To be fair we made this buggy work hard for us but it only lasted a year which just isn't good enough. Wheels were trashed, straps that adjust the recline fell off and the harness was never very comfortable. Child can't sit up straight which means they are always in a slouch which my DS hated. My mum had one that lasted 3 kids, they obviously don't make them so sturdy anymore!
Maclaren Triumph: Maclaren - not so triumph for me

Summary: I think i was a bit naive when it came to picking a second pushchair for my eldest son. He originally had one of these big bulky travel systems, so when he got a bit older, thought it was time to get a light, easy to use stroller that everyone gets. So there I was looking frantically for one online and came accross the triumph. It was on sale... and it had great reviews.... looked good.... and was a maclaren. So in my opinion, it looked liked an absolute great deal.

Excerpt: Was a little disappointed with this, it wasn't as light as I thought it was going to be and was difficult to lift into the pushchair holder on buses (but this may be more due to the design of the bus i have to lift it over the 3foot high barrier, which isn't that easy when holding baby and large change bag.
