New Mutsy Evo Stroller

The New Mutsy Evo can be summed up in one sentence: the coolest stroller I have ever seen.  This stroller is hot.  Sporting a sleep design with a black or grey metal frame and clean lines, this stroller is the Maserati of strollers. 

The Evo is a high-end stroller similar in looks and feel other high-end strollers that are so popular today.  However, the Evo shines where other popular strollers stop.    After using some other strollers, I have longed for a few key design tweaks.  The Evo provides an answer to many of these frustrations with its innovative and thoughtful design.

The key standouts on the Mutsy Evo Stroller:

Collapse-ability: When the Evo stroller is collapsed, the seat back actually folds down, resulting in a small, sleek rectangularly-shaped package.  At first blush, this may not seem that revolutionary.  When I had a newborn in a big city like Chicago, I rarely had to take a stroller in and out of the car.  I walked almost everywhere, and I did not mind the few times the stroller went in and out of my car.

Flash forward a few months, and I came to dread putting my stroller in the car.  It was big, bulky and I always had to fight with my car to get it in.  A stroller that folds into a neat and compact shape is a huge luxury for suburban moms or moms who are in and out of a car.  And the best part, the seat never needs to be removed, it just collapses!

Handle: The Evo features a handle to carry the stroller.  Again, this may not seem like a huge deal.  But ask any mom who is carrying a 25-pound stroller, and a handle is a very nice luxury!

No back to the basket: The basket has no back, which means that packages and large shaped objects can easily fit right in.  The basket is still huge, just more functional and easier to access even when the stroller seat is lying flat.

Design: I love a black-framed stroller.  Besides that, the color choices are impeccable and stand out.  I ordered a white stroller.  Crazy right?  But really, I have never seen a more beautiful stroller.  That’s right, I am slightly stroller obsessed.  I check them out everywhere I go, and I could not resist having a white stroller.  It features cool black trim and black and silver wheels to match. 

Choice: Want a smaller sun canopy?  Just zip up part of the canopy.  Want to use the stroller for a newborn?  Lay it flat and fold up the bottom of the seat to make a basket.  Want to face the baby forward or backwards?  The seat releases very simply by gently pressing on both sides of the seat, which I found much easier to release than other strollers.

Fold: My poor mom has had such a horrible time trying to fold my UPPAbaby Vista.  One time she had to stop down women walking down the street in the hope that they might be able to assist her, as she thought she was going to break the stroller.  The Evo folds very easily by pressing down the handlebar and pushing up on two releases.  With the Vista, you need to press two buttons in while pressing another one up and towards you body.  It is kind of like trying to pat your head while rubbing your stomach.  While hopping on one foot.  Now try to do that with a crying baby and leaking boobs.

Fabric: If you ask anyone what Mutsy does really well, they will tell you they make the nicest stroller fabric in the business.  And this was from a guy working at a baby store for over ten years.  Their fabric is plush, soft and has a beautiful sheen to it.  It is also padded and very comfortable to sit on.  Just what you want for a baby!

I love the look of this stroller! Is the white hard to keep clean? Are the fabrics machine washable?

I'd love to know about the white/silver fabric as well. Is it hard to keep clean? I love the look, but would opt for the black or navy if you feel it's hard to keep clean or always looks dingy.

Thanks!

I love love love the look and features of the mutsy evo but was wondering about the canopy size when seat is flat...is it big enough to protect baby from sun?
