The Mountain Buggy Mini is a very lightweight, slim stroller that has been designed to meet the challenges of city terrain. The Mountain Buggy MIni is nippy to manoeuvere and easy to lift up kerbs. The one handed fold is easy to do and the Mini freestands when folded. However the fold is long and the new Aerotech wheels vibrate terribly on hard surfaces. The lie flat seat, carrycot and car seat options give plenty of choices for a newborn.
Light. Easy to lift and carry with one hand. Freestands neatly. Easy to manoeuvere - the front wheel swivels freely. Good sized seat. Looks neat and unfussy. One handed fold. Autolock. Lie flat seat for newborns. High seat weight capacity.
The wheels vibrate badly when pushing on hard surfaces. The handlebar joints are loose and move. The shopping basket is shallow at the front and things may fall out. The harness is extremely difficult to adjust quickly and needs altering round the back - frustrating with a child in the seat with a thicker coat on, one day, or when sunny and wearing less! Very basic and functional. Raincover is an extra.
Yes as an optional extra
