Mutsy Evo - review

Mutsy Evo is a fantastic from birth to 3 years pushchair from the Dutch company. I bought one preloved and it stayed with us for a relatively long time as I liked it so much! Here are my pros and cons to give you an idea of what it's like and you can find lots of photos from our adventures below.

  • very easy to use
  • lie flat seat
  • seat is a very good size and my 4 year old fitted in it nicely
  • very light to push with one or two hands
  • easy to get up and down kerbs
  • good size wheels that cushion the ride nicely and are very quiet
  • leatherette handlebar
  • great harness
  • adjustable leg rest
  • fantastic quality footmuff (sold separately)
  • option to add a carrycot or car seat
  • can be folded with seat on in either direction and can freestand when folded although with the seat world facing the pushchair rests on the canopy
  • can handle most terrains with ease
  • automatic lock to keep the frame closed
  • handlebar rotates up and down to suit all heights.
  • large shopping basket that unfortunately is very shallow at the back and also hangs very close to the ground so you risk loosing items or getting them dirty
  • very small canopy that doesn't provide any protection when seat is even slightly reclined
  • ill fitting raincover, too small to fit around the leg rest
  • frame scratches easily due to how the Evo folds and there's no way around that
  • folding needs two hands and takes several steps
  • the additional UV cover that can be bought is just a very expensive mosquito net that gives no extra sun protection.

Footrest scratches when you fold the chassis down, 
no way around that and a real shame as it looks unsightly.

I managed to take the Evo over lots of difficult terrains and it didn't stop anywhere!

Light enough for a 4 year old to push. Handlebar adjusts low as well.

Evo UV cover is just a very expensive mosquito net, it gives 
no more protection from the sun than the canopy normally does!

Perfect for school runs with room for book bags etc.
