Summary: good for out doors stuff but not for nipping to the shops.
Pros: good strong chair, stood up to dog walks in the wilds and horse fields.
Cons: very large in shops especially at sale time when there are boxes stacked at the end of every isle. still large when folded, takes up whole boot. also strappy are very long even on my large 18mth old boy they are still very loose.
Summary: Overall the Quinny Speedi SX is an all round great buy - it can be used in combination with the Maxi-Cosi car seat which is great if baby falls asleep in the car. It folds up easily and the adjustable basket is most useful!
Pros: In short this is a fantastic buggy - the front wheel makes manoeuvering it so easy (unlike those supermarket shopping trolleys!) and it can be adjusted depending on the terrain.
Summary: A great travel system from birth onwards(carrycot) & easy to click on & off the carseat & carrycot. Great for 1yr upwards. Bit of a hole in the designing where 5mths to a yr is concerned though. Great handbrake, life saver on hills & near roads. Very easy to manouvre & lightweight. Very well built & sturdy. Great round town/shops & great on bumpy ground/dirt tracks/running.
Pros: Very easy to open/fold. Very easy to click on/off the car seat/carrycot. Lightweight and stable. Great off road & around town. Great drawstring bag type under basket which makes sure nothing falls out, also takes a decent amount of weight hanging off it without it tilting.
Cons: The seat height adjustment is like a pull cord & isn't that good. It lies virtually flat & if baby falls asleep while out you can just let it down slowly without clunking it, but it does not sit upright(only goes to about 40-45 degrees) which really bugs my 8mth old. Also, when bumping down steps the adjustable handle tends to start sliding out. Quite fiddly fitting of the seat unit(lots of buckles & poppers) & no how-to diagram in the booklets! Seat belt/straps seem ...
Excerpt: Bought the Quinny Speedi as we wanted a pushchair that could cope with grass, snow and country walks - something our Mothercare My4 is hopeless with but the Speedi really delivers and is actually a pleasure to push. It is also a generous size which has been great as both my DS and DD are big for their ages. Although it is quite heavy, it folds down well, the wheels are easy to remove and it is easy to open out. The rain cover is also quick and easy to fit and take off.
Excerpt: I did a lot of walking with my little one, for outdoor multi-terrain walking this is great and reasonably ease to fold up and down. It does remain quite bulky and cumbersome once collapsed and I am glad I have an SUV with plenty of space in the back. If you want a pushchair to go shopping with this is not ideal for pushing around crammed shops as it does take up a lot of room. The fitting of the rain cover is not particularly great.
Excerpt: I got the quinny speedi 3 wheeler as a second pushchair after discovering that the pushchair I had originally bought (graco fusio) did not cope well with even the smallest of bumps. The speedi has large wheels and suspension meaning that it gives baby a smooth ride whatever the terrain. We mainly use it for long walks. It is wider than most pushchairs and doesn't fit round the shops very well.
" I heart my speedi. I've only given 7 for durability…"

Excerpt: I heart my speedi. I've only given 7 for durability but that's only as I can't comment as we haven't had it long enough. DD is now in the pushchair section having been in the pram and car seat attachments previously. This buggy is a dream to push and DD is really comfy in it. The only down sides I've found is it's size (it's still big even when folded) and that DD can't sit fully straight up in it - she always partially reclines due to it's design.
Excerpt: I live in the country and do allot of walking - mostly on roads etc but it is really easy to push but not really pratical for going round the shops. I recently purchased a small buggy for my boot. You could walk for miles and you dont know your pushing a pram. Still use the carrycot and carseat allot my baby is 6 mnths.
