I’ve always associated Mutsy with stylish but heavy travel systems but much like its competitor Quinny, it competes in the ‘lightweight’ market with their Mutsy Spider. At 8.5kg though, it’s not really that lightweight although considerably lighter than other pushchairs in its range, but when you consider that a Quinny Zapp is 6 kg, that’s a fairly chunky difference in weight.
But I think like many big brand, stylish pushchairs, the individual (often mama) chooses a pushchair for all sorts of reasons because if it was always down to weight, many of the popular pushchairs would not get a look in!
It can be folded down and placed into a travel/storage transit bag, has the reclining multi-positional seat, adjustable handle, lockable swivel wheels that are also nifty when unlocked for manoeuvrability, you can raise the headrest as they get taller, plus you can put a 0+ carseat on it – the Mutsy Safe 2 Go Infant Carseat with adaptors. It’s not revolutionising the wheel in terms of looks but it does look good and will certainly be a smoother ride and a lot more comfortable than seriously lightweight pushchairs that need to skimp on things like padding to get the weight down. The Mutsy Spider does look super comfortable.
If you’re looking for a lightweight pushchair with the ability to put a carseat on, this is certainly one to consider but with a RRP of Â£199 with the carry bag and foot muff being extra (Â£20 and Â£34) respectively, nevermind the carseat, this is a pricier lightweight pushchair. Cheapest found was Â£179.99 at BabyBoom2000 or you can get it for Â£180 at Olivers Babycare including delivery.
