Cybex Strollers, Car Seats and Baby Carrier Preview
|2-Go Baby Carrier|
Cybex is coming! Not to be confused with the gym equipment manufacturer, this German company will be offering infant and booster car seats, baby carriers and strollers.
We had a preview of the line that will be available late summer and winter.
We were impressed by all of Cybex’s products, but the 2-Go Baby Carrier ($100) really blew us out of the water.
Suitable for babies from 3 months up to 40 lbs, it has ergonomically formed shoulder straps and distributes the child’s weight evenly on the parent’s hips, not back — similar to the ErgoBABY Carrier, but with even more positions and way more style.
There are 5 positions; facing inwards, hip position — facing inwards, front facing outwards, front facing as a mobility seat — for older babies with the top part folded down, and on the parent’s back.

|Solution X-Fix Booster Seat|
The Aton Infant Car Seat (price TBD) is for babies up to 30 lbs, has a force absorbing shell, removable inlay (to grow with the child) and can be used, with an adapter, as a travel system with the Cybex’s Callisto, Onyx, and Topaz Strollers.
The Solution X-Fix Booster Seat (price TBD) is for children ages 3 ½ – 12, has a 3 position headrest, linear side impact protection, reclining backrest, and 11 height positions (so the booster seat can grow with a child).
|Ruby lightweight stroller|
Cybex’s strollers include the Callisto and the “gem” strollers: Topaz, Onyx and Ruby.
The Callisto ($350) has terrific spring loaded suspension, a two part fold (very common in European strollers), 3 position sun canopy, weighs 20 lbs, and a detachable bumper bar. It turns into a travel system with their Aton Infant Car Seat or a carry cot (around $160).
The Topaz ($260) has a detachable bumper bar, a height adjustable handlebar, 4 reclining positions, 2 position leg rest and weighs 17 lbs.
The Onyx ($220) has 4 reclining positions, a 2 position leg rest and weighs 15 lbs. Both the Topaz and the Onyx will also take the Aton Car Seat with the adapter.
The lightweight Ruby ($140), which is suitable from 6 months on, is 11 lbs and has a two-position seat.
All strollers come with rain covers and the amazing Central One-Pull Harness System — just push a button to loosen the harness straps, fit it to your child, and then pull the strap below it to tighten the harness.
The strollers and baby carrier are set to debut in late summer and the car seats in winter.
