Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller Review – Kimberley McQuire
Why Did You Choose The Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller?
The Steelcraft Agile Stroller was one of my first big purchases when I was pregnant with my first baby. I had spent a lot of time researching prams. They are an expensive purchase so I wanted to ensure I was getting the one that fit my needs and expectations. I wanted a pram that could totally lay back flat compared to the bucket seat style of most other prams. I also wanted a pram that was one piece rather than a frame and a seat. It was a mid price range pram and I liked the reputable brand of steelcraft.
What Are The Pros Of The Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller?
There are many great features of the Steelcraft Agile Stroller:
- The stroller easy to fold function is my favourite pro.
- Another favourite pro is the complete flat lay feature which was perfect for my newborn and sleeping baby. It turns very well and is easy to push.
- The Steelcraft Agile Stroller has a very large, almost full coverage sunhood, with a magnetic window to look in and check on the baby. It has puncture proof foam filled wheels, so they do not need inflating.
- The stroller is compatible with the infant carriers, although I did not use this feature.
What Are The Cons Of The Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller?
Although I absolutely loved this stroller initially; as my baby got older I have noticed a few cons.
- The Steelcraft Agile Stroller is very long, it is designed to fit up to a 29kg child, however I have realised that I do not need this and would rather a smaller pram.
- I found the stroller doesn’t sit upright enough, my daughter has to hold onto the belly bar to sit upright.
- The straps to adjust the seat position can be a bit hard to get even at times, it takes a bit of practice to get it right.
- The basket underneath is a good size, however the basket is difficult to access and I do not like the drawstring feature of the basket.
- Finally another thing that some people may find an issue, is that you cannot face your baby, however I did not find this an issue, I felt my baby enjoyed looking in the direction of travel.
Is The Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller Good Value For Money?
I paid a little more for the “SP” variety, thinking that the extra height would be a great feature, however I now would have been happy with the cheaper, standard height Agile pram. After 18 months of daily use the pram is still in excellent condition I definitely used this product a lot and will continue to use it with my toddler so I feel it was worth the money spent.
Would You Recommend The Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller To Others?
After reviewing the Steelcraft Agile SP Stroller, there are definitely some points I didn’t love about this stroller, however this particular model has since been replaced for the Steelcraft Elite Stroller which has fixed some of the issues discussed.
I am definitely glad a purchased a pram that was easy to collapse, with an all in one frame and seat. I did really love this pram while my baby was small. However the accessibility to the storage basket was a big downfall.
