CYBEX Agis M-Air 4
CYBEX Agis M-Air 4 is one of the newest members of the CYBEX family. As you may remember I already tested the Balios M for CYBEX and was absolutely loving it! The Agis M-Air 4 is a smaller, more lightweight world facing stroller but it still has some great features.
The Agis M-Air 4 can be used as a pushchair from birth with the optional carrycot, it can also be used as a travel system with one of CYBEX's amazing car seats or it can be used from newborns up to 17 kg or roughly 4 years of age in the world facing seat unit with lie flat recline.
The Agis M-Air 4 features a wonderful and easy one hand fold. It has a standing fold position so it takes very little space. There's a large and extendable canopy although the extension is mesh so only really good in fair weather. The Agis M-Air 4 comes with the bumper bar but sadly no raincover. As with the Balios M and other pushchairs from CYBEX M series, the raincover is optional and I'd strongly suggest purchasing one if you live in Great Britain with the ever surprising weather!
What surprised me about the Agis M-Air 4 was that it has a height adjustable handlebar. This is still quite uncommon on similar pushchairs from different brands. The handle goes quite high and I'd definitely recommend the Agis M-Air 4 to taller and shorter parents alike.
The seat unit of the Agis M-Air 4 is very spacious and will easily fit an older and taller child. It is rather wide though and I found my daughter slumped in the seat all the time. This is partly due to the waist straps being attached at the sides of the seat and not behind the child's back as in some other pushchairs. The harness is very easy to adjust and the buckle is strong and would be hard to open by a child in my opinion.
The shopping basket is very large but sadly it can only be accessed from the back and the gap between the bottom of the seat and the axle is very small so you can't fit larger items in there.
The wheels are hard rubber, the rear wheels are a very good size, the front wheels are smaller making this an urban pushchair. The front wheels can be locked straight to handle some more difficult terrains. Even though there's suspension on the wheels it can't be felt if I'm completely honest and it gets very bumpy on uneven pavements. The front wheels rattle and make noise as well. This bothered me a little but the overall pushing experience is good. The Agis M-Air 4 is very light to push and turn one handed so I can forgive it the bit of bumpiness :)
My final opinion is that the Agis M-Air 4 is a fantastic, lightweight full size pushchair with a very large seat, big basket and great one hand fold and it would make a perfect addition to any family looking for a practical all rounder for their child.
