Summary: We bought this pram for our newborn after having used a larger pram (i-candy apple) for our baby's first two months. The pram is lightweight and very easy to maneouvre and handles uneven camber on the pavement nicely. It folds very easily and is so light and compact that can fit it in the boot of the car and can quickly be assembled with one click. We also intend to travel with this pram. We did have a flat tyre on it which was easily repaired at a local bike shop.
" Great when it works, but too many maintenance issues…"
17 January 2013
Excerpt: We got the Swift because it steered like a dream in the shop, and it hasn't disappointed us in this respect. However, it's had a number of maintenance problems in the first few weeks, which is not what you need when you're looking after a newbown baby for the first time. It arrived with a faulty inner tube on the front wheel. This had a leaky inner seam, so it was clearly a manufacturing defect.
Good Solid Rugged Pram/Stroller/Pusher Suitable for newborns
9 January 2013
Summary: This is a good solid stroller/pram. The seat can be lowered so a new-born can be carried in it. Also has a fairly small foot-print, unlike some of the huge pusher you can get that resemble a 4WD. It's still being made, so getting accessories for it is possible. We also got a padded insert to hold our tiny baby's head snugly.
Good allrounder, but sort of wishing I got an urban for walking/running.

Summary: not as good at my old mountain buggy urban. I thought it would be more compact, but the frount wheel sticks out when folded. Would not be great for a small car. My baby seems to like it though. More padded and more comfortable than our old stroller. Good access to the storage underneath.
