Cybex Libelle Stroller Review: The Ultimate Compact Travel Companion for Families

Sharing is caring!

Have baby? Will travel? Of course, you will!!! The Cybex Libelle stroller has quickly gained a reputation as one of the lightest and most compact strollers in the world, making it an ideal choice for parents on the go. Designed with travel in mind, this innovative stroller boasts a remarkably small fold that allows it to fit into an overhead bin on an airplane. Today, we’ll share the features, functionality, and overall performance of the Cybex Libelle, and tell you why we think that it stands out as a top pick for families seeking convenience and style in their travel gear. Whether you’re navigating busy city streets or jet-setting across the globe, the Cybex Libelle promises to make your journeys smoother and more enjoyable.

The Cybex Libelle seat accommodates from 6 months up to 55 lbs unless using the included car seat adapter which makes it suitable from birth. The seat measures 14″ wide, with a 19″ seat back and a measurement of 26″ from back of seat to top of canopy. There is a 5-point, padded harness that is very easy to adjust with a strap system (similar to an infant car seat). Also, an adjustable leg rest keeps your little rider comfy. The recline has a strap system but the stroller doesn’t have a very deep recline so the seat itself is recommended for 6 months and up.


The canopy isn’t the biggest on the market with just two panels and no peek a boo window. This is pretty standard on a super lightweight, travel stroller and we assume Cybex was trying to save weight with the smaller canopy.


The handles are not adjustable on the Cybex Libelle but they are taller at 41″ from ground to handles.


There is a basket under the seat that accommodates a small to medium diaper bag and is accessible from the back or front of the stroller.

The Cybex Libelle rolls on 5″ hard rubber wheels and features front wheel suspension. The maneuverability is good and since it’s a travel stroller, the smaller wheels are best on smooth surfaces.


The fold and unfold is where the Cybex Libelle really shines! It’s one of the main reasons (besides the lightweight frame) to purchase this stroller. The two handed fold is so easy to do: you push the two white buttons on the handles, push the handlebar in a downward motion as the stroller starts to fold and then rotate the handles in to finish the fold. There is a lock that keeps the ULTRA small package folded. The stroller only weighs 13 lbs so it’s super great for travel.

Unfolding the stroller is also so easy it might almost looks like a circus trick when you are doing it in a parking lot. Watch our full video review to see the unfold in action.

The Cybex Libelle has sold separately accessories that make the stroller even better including a travel bag, baby bumper bar, rain cover and seat liner.


The Cybex Libelle was designed as an ultra-compact, lightweight travel stroller and it excels at that. It’s not a full-featured, do-it-all stroller and we are okay with that because we know what it is. It’s a TRAVEL STROLLER. It doesn’t have the biggest canopy or the deepest recline BUT it is one of the lightest, most compact strollers in the world and fits into an overhead compartment on an airplane. We found the seat to be roomy enough for a child up to 4 years old and we absolutely love that there are 7 colors to choose from – PINK IS OUR FAVORITE!

If you are looking for a lightweight travel stroller, we highly suggest you take a look at the Cybex Libelle. You can purchase the Cybex Libelle on Amazon.
