Jane Trider

Decent size parent and forward facing seat with 3 position recline

The Trider takes Jane car seats and carrycots 
without the use of any adapters thanks to ProFix system.

Medium size canopy

One hand recline on top of the seat and a very small basket 
that barely holds the huge when folded raincover

10 inch solid wheels

Height adjustable handlebar with an easy to use handbrake

Folds with seat in place parent or forward facing. It's a very large fold and pretty much fills the boot of a very large hatchback. Will freestand when folded which is useful for storage at home.

Adjustable leg rest and swing away bumper bar

There's suspension that can be adjusted as the baby grows but the Trider was a surprisingly bumpy and uncomfortable to push. 
Due to the high position of the seat and the fact the Trider is a 3 wheeler I found it very tippy.

Footmuff that can be bought separately is very good size and very cosy!

Unfortunately I found a huge safety issue with the Trider's harness. This is my large 7,5 month old in the seat unit. The seat is suitable from 6 months but the harness on the shortest setting was far too big for my baby. The crotch strap can't be adjusted and is very long, this would probably be a good size for a 3 year old but not for a young baby! Jane really failed here as I feared for my baby's safety!  

Lowest and shortest setting of the shoulder straps.

Non adjustable crotch strap.

This was my own pushchair. I sadly cannot recommend it to anyone with a young baby due to the harness issue! It might be better for older/larger toddlers though.
