Summary: The freestanding fold is the key seller. 9 mos and 12 flights we were able to easily gate check and in a few cases some kindly stewardesses stowed it on board (great when you have an international flight and they don't gate check) and all because it looks so compact and is truly light!
Pros: We bought the Bugaboo Chameleon (new parents - inexperienced and cost us ££££) the Mmicrallite is a fraction of the cost and if I'd done research could have used from birth with options (DD didn't care if she looked at us and hated being flat on her back in the bboo carry cot - acid reflux - feel...
Cons: Bought the extra seat cushion but it bobbles (didn't use often as mesh is fine in heat. The rainover needs about an inch more at the bottom when DD in footmuff. Don't over load basket at bottom (mine has a bit of gaffer tape to mend tear made by carrying too many water bottles and scraping paving...
superb, great handling & easy to get about anywhere I need...

Summary: I bought this buggy about 6 months ago and haven't looked back since. I've owned Bugaboo Cameleon (which I loved) and then went onto P&T Vibe (as we had 2 kids) that actually broke on us! Then we decided to buy only a buggy with a board.
Pros: very easy to unfold/fold, great for getting anywhere we need, comes with very much needed raincover and also able to attach the buggy board which was one of our condition for purchasing a buggy... our daughter loves it and to be fair so do I...
Cons: a bit on a large side when folded, what surprised us quite a bit and the hood is simply not long enought for nor the rain nor the sun, also I'd prefer the foam filled wheels... otherwise absolutely perfect...
Quite Impressed, and I'm comparing to a Rolls Royce (Bugaboo)

Summary: I have downgraded to the Super-Lite from a Bugaboo Cameleon as the 2 part folding was annoying me and I was dissapointed with the problems I had with the chassis breaking, then the clips on the frame not working correctly.
Pros: Cost is very good. Big tyres at rear make this the only one of these type of light nippy buggies that can be multi terrain, looks better than the original version with the black aluminium. The seat liners make this so much better for keeping it looking new, comes with Rain cover included (origina...
Cons: As with all of these types of buggies they can tip backwards too easily if you put bags on the handles (I know manufacturers say don't but get real, the shopping basket on this is really shallow!) You can kick the back wheels really easily and I'm only 5' 3" but I solved this by flipping the hand...
Summary: I wish someone had told us about this buggy earlier so that we could have started using it from the recommended age (6m+) onwards! We have previously owned both a Bugaboo and MacLaren and the Micralite beats both by a mile. Top points for: - a single handlebar rather than two handles.
Excerpt: We have been using this buggy for our son since he was 4 months old (now 6 months) and he really likes it. He is on the slimmer side so the slightly narrower back is perfect to prevent him from slouching and falling to one side as he can't yet sit up unsupported.
Summary: Really fast service arrived in two days. Love the stroller looks cool and is really easy to ensemble I was worried my son maybe too big for it as he is 18 months but super tall but it's fine it will last another 18 months . We got the travel bag too and the liner to keep it clean when travelling .
Excerpt: I love my micralite! Seriously, it's the best pram I've ever pushed. It's even good on rough terrain. It's much easier to push than even the Maclaren. The hammock seat is really comfy for babies and toddlers alike.
Summary: We purchased this buggy to take on holiday as it is so lightweight and easy to put up/down. We're thrilled with it. It is stylish, comfortable for our little boy, very light and very easy to put up and collapse. Absolutely delighted and would highly recommend.
