It took a while to get here but now it’s a pram force to be reckoned with for those with twins or two kids fairly close in age. The ABC Design Zoom – which we first featured in April 2009 and again in August 2009 – has just arrived in Australia at the very splendid Olifant!
The Zoom accomodates several add-on options such as a Maxi Cosi, bassinette and full-sized seat. Both children can face in or out and also towards each other. I rather like the rounded chassis which sits over four solid wheels. I always watch for front swivel wheels as I have seen many tandems that evidently push like tanks, from the look of exertion on the parent’s face. Bad swivel wheels are an outing’s worst enemy and the Zoom looks to have great manoeuvrability, even with a full load.
The included extras are a change bag and raincover, and although not officially mentioned on the manufacturer’s website, according to a favourable review on the Zoom it seems that it may also come with cosytoes and a brolly. The folded length is less than a single Mountain Buggy, which is great news for those with more compact cars.
Contact Olifant for purchasing details. At this stage the Zoom is available for in store purchase at the Williamstown store in Melbourne, Victoria. We hope there are plans to sell online but we’re just glad it has finally reached our shores!
