I am pretty sure that the Concord Neo Carbon is the most expensive pushchair on the UK market at present.
With a prictag of Â£1699 and I’m sure that’s excluding ‘extras’ this is one serious chunk of cash on wheels. So what’s so special about it?
Handmade in Germany, it’s a pushchair first because it’s made from high tech carbon of aerospace industry standard. It’s described as super lightweight but it is actually 11.2kg, which whilst not the heaviest, isn’t the lightest either. Mind you, at this price, weight is not the top of your concerns if you buy it – this is a style and innovation buy!
Despite the weight, the beauty of the frame, aside from it’s stunning exterior is that it has superior strength and durability that you don’t get in other pushchairs.
Each frame has a unique serial number, so no doubt the writing on the wall is for these to be collectables in years to come. Oh and you can get your baby’s name engraved on it too.
The frame uses an innovative Y-shaped axel for manoeuvrability which is enhanced by the central and independent wheel suspension for a smooth ride. It has a high load bearing capacity and using carbon minimises vibration when you’re on the move, which is great for the overall comfort of your child. You can also get foam or pneumatic tyres.
The seat, which faces in either direction, has merino wool inner linings (super soft, eco friendly, regulates temperature) which are also really durable but also an indicator of luxury. Due to the height of the seat, much like the Stokke Xplory, it could be used as a highchair on the go, although, looking this good, would you want to?!
It has leather handles, folds down compactly, and can be used as a travel system with a matching Scout carry cot and Ion Car Seat.
This one seriously beautiful pushchair and is the pushchair of choice for the likes of Natasha Kaplinskey and Rio Ferdinand. You can rest assured that at Â£1699, you’re unlikely to see many of these out and about on your travels.
Because it’s custom made, it takes 12 weeks for delivery.
You can buy it at Kiddicare for Â£1698.97 and I have found it at Babybirds for Â£1150 although do clarify what you get for the price with any deals that you find.
With the Kiddicare price, you get the carrycot and car seat but it is unclear whether this included with the Babybirds offer.
Ideal for: Celebrities, loaded people, design fiends, and the parent that just has to be different and will pay for it too.
Bang for your style buck: Excellent – This is one super hot pushchair where it’s stylish aesthetically and innovation wise.
Weight range: Medium…for a travel system.
