Cybex Priam Stroller Review (VIDEO)

Last fall, we introduced you to the newest addition to the Cybex line of strollers – the Priam. After a 10 month wait, it is finally here!

Cybex Priam

This is a customizable stroller stocked with luxury features for both parent and baby! When you purchase the Priam, you choose the color, the seat (2-in-1 or the Luxe seat) and which of the three types of wheels (Light, Trekking and All-Terrain) that you would like.

SEAT

The seat on the Priam is roomy at 14″ wide with a 23″ seat back and a measurement of 25″ from seat back to canopy. It accommodates from birth up to 55 lbs. There is a 5 point, adjustable harness in the seat for safety and an adjustable footrest for comfort. The baby bumper bar is covered in faux leather so that will be no mouthfuls of foam on this stroller and it is swing away and removable.

The seat has a flat recline to accommodate a newborn and we mean FLAT! F-L-A-T! We emphasize that because when other brands say “flat” they don’t really mean it. Cybex means it! The recline is easy to do with the one-handed lever. The seat also is reversible so that your little rider can face parent or out at the world.

CANOPY

If you know anything about strollers, you know that canopy size matters. The bigger the better, I always say. The Priam has it down. It has a nice clean look when it opens but unzip it to reveal another whole canopy panel to make this a full-coverage canopy that reaches the bumper bar.

HANDLEBAR

While I’d like to be 5’9, I’m not, and we aren’t all the same height. Luckily, Cybex knows this and gave us an adjustable handlebar with the Priam that telescopes from 39″-43″ from ground to handle. That is a TALL handle!

BASKET

The large basket under the seat is accessible from the back (not the front or sides) and can hold a large diaper bag or quite a bit of baby essentials.

WHEELS/FOLD

The “customizable” part comes into play with the wheels. The Priam is available with three sets of wheels to choose from. The “Light” wheels are best for city strolling and agile for smooth surfaces. The “Trekking” wheels are hybrid wheels for those who navigate a mixture of smooth city streets and a bit rougher all-terrain surfaces. The “All-Terrain” wheels are more robust to tackle more all-terrain, uneven surfaces.

The front wheels swivel with the ability to lock straight for a bit all-terrain and the rear suspension absorbs some of the bumps.

The Priam folds down with the seat attached (or you can remove it) and weighs in at about 26 lbs depending on the wheels you choose. The fold is easy to do but it’s good to note that there is no transport lock.

TRAVEL SYSTEM

The Priam comes with car seat adapters for the Cybex Aton or the new Cybex Cloud Q infant car seats to turn this buggy into a travel system.

ACCESSORIES

Other accessories sold separately for the Priam are: carry cot, cup holder, parasol, diaper bag, foot muff, kid board and skis. Yes, you read that correctly – “SKIS”. There are a set of skis to replace the front wheels that will allow the Priam to tackle snow better. 🙂

WRAP-UP

The Cybex Priam is stocked with luxury features which means it comes with a luxury price tag. The Priam retails for $1,000 for the option with the Luxe seat and approximately $1,100 for the 2-in-1 seat. If you have a big stroller budget, the Priam may be the stroller for you.

Does anyone know of a retailer who carries this stroller?

Great review.
One question – Can one customer buy two sets of wheels (if they feel they need city and all -terrain for example) and then switch them out themselves depending on the situation, or do you select your wheel type and the stroller is purchased with those wheels only?

Thanks!

The seat looks very similar to the Inglesina Quad stroller.
