Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan turns city slicker

Mountain Buggy fans, adjust your three-wheeled thinking.

Mountain Buggy, synonymous with the three-wheeled pram that can handle ‘off-road’ conditions, is taking a change-of-pace with the brand new Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan.

The Cosmopolitan stays true to Mountain Buggy’s history – first-class suspension for a smooth ride, durable frame and a simple and easy fold system – but incorporates a four-wheel drive and a three-position seat – recline, forward or rear-facing.

So the big news is four wheels. Mountain Buggy have used Aerotech tyres, a puncture-proof blend of EVA and rubber, ensuring durability and a smooth ride for your baby. With the push of a button (literally), the front wheels transition smoothly from fixed to swivel, essential for manoeuvrability. Combined with Mountain Buggy’s superior suspension engineering, the Cosmopolitan allows you to tackle kerbs with ease.

There’s much to like about the Cosmopolitan’s three seat positions. The main seat is forward or rear facing and converts to a full carrycot with a few simple adjustments. This means that the pram truly takes a baby from birth onwards without the need for buying additional extras.

Other appealing features include a one pedal foot park brake that is activated with ease; straightforward fold and unfold (my favourite feature of my Mountain Buggy – there’s no ‘knack’, you simply fold and unfold in one simple move); a huge basket; and a five-point harness with two-button release that will keep even the most skilled escape-artists strapped in.

The Cosmopolitan is available in three colours – chilli, turquoise and flint (a slick stone and denim combination), combined with a brushed matte aluminum finish. It retails for $799. Shop online or find a retailer directly through Mountain Buggy.
