Finding your perfect pram

Choosing your first travel system? Here’s everything to consider

Categories   Product Guides

The Edit

There’s lots to think about when choosing the perfect pram for you.

How and where will you use it? Are you an urban dweller strolling busy city streets, or an adventure seeker tackling different terrains? How many little ones does it need to carry now or in the future?

Your baby’s wheels come in all shapes and sizes, so let us guide you through all the options. We’re here to help!

What is a travel system?

A pram essentially becomes a ‘travel system’ when it can be used with an infant carrier in place of the carrycot or pushchair seat. It’s a great option for carrying a sleepy baby from pram to car without too much disturbance, as you can simply attach the car seat straight to the chassis.

All our travel systems can be used with the award-winning Silver Cross Dream i-Size infant carrier, which is available to purchase separately or as part of a bundle, as well as infant carriers from other leading brands too. 

I love being outdoors, so need a pram that is reliable.

Bigger wheels are best for steering from countryside footpaths to suburban streets, with independent 4-wheel suspension protecting your little one from any bumps in the road.

Reef 2 is designed for all-terrain comfort. Thanks to its durable design, a supersized UPF50+ sun hood and extra-large storage basket, Reef 2 is the perfect pram for family days out. At the end of your adventures, Reef 2 can be effortlessly folded with one hand, with the seat facing either way to self-stand on its wheels – ideal for storing in your car boot and at home.

There are plenty of newborn-ready strolling modes with Reef 2 – with a lie-flat seat that’s suitable from birth and the option to add the overnight sleeping approved, bamboo-lined folding carrycot. Plus, Reef 2 is compatible with the Silver Cross Dream i-Size infant carrier, as well as a range of car seats from other leading brands with the universal car seat adaptors that are now included in the box.

Which travel system do you recommend for urban living?

If you’re navigating busy streets and public transport, Dune 2 is for you. 

Designed for urban lifestyles, Dune 2’s compact design and self-standing fold offers the ultimate convenience for parents – whether you’re on the go or storing Dune 2 away at home or in your car boot. With a roomy shopping basket, ergonomic wheels and car seat compatibility, Dune 2 is the perfect companion when you’re running errands. 

Dune 2 can be tailored to you, with a newborn-ready lie-flat seat in the box, or the option to add our overnight sleeping approved, bamboo-lined carrycot – which is the ultimate space saver with its flat-folding design. Plus, Dune 2 can be transformed into a clever newborn travel system using Dream i-Size or a car seat from an alternative brand using the universal adaptors now included in the box.

I have a newborn and a toddler. Which Silver Cross pram is best for me?

If you’re hoping to have a second child soon after the first, look for a single pram that can be converted into a double. This means that rather than buying a new pram, you can simply reconfigure the one you already have to suit your growing family.

Wave is the ultimate single to double pram, allowing you to choose from seven configurations straight out of the box. Super strong and reliable, Wave can carry one, two or even three little passengers – think of it as future proofing for parents!

By adding the tandem seat, second carrycot or a ride-on-board (all sold separately), you can choose from up to 30 configurations. Also suitable for twins, Wave can be used with two carrycots, pushchair seats or car seats. 

What is your most lightweight pram?

Tide is our lightest, most compact all-terrain pushchair. Suitable from birth to 4 years, with two newborn options straight from the box – an overnight sleeping approved carrycot and full lie-flat seat – Tide offers ultimate convenience to suit every family.

Designed for everyday adventures, Tide features multi-terrain wheels and full suspension meaning it's great for strolling off-road, with its lightweight design and lockable wheels making it super easy to manoeuvre.  

Tide has an effortless self-standing fold for easy storage in your home or in your car boot.

I’m looking for an all-round pram that’s stylish, reliable and affordable.

The Silver Cross Coast is our go-to travel system for all three – it’s effortlessly stylish, has four-way suspension to ensure a smooth ride and you can always rely on its sturdy frame.

Coast’s timeless design looks sleek and contemporary against any backdrop, be it the capital’s skyscrapers or a rural village. The easy-action fold means it’s hassle-free when it comes to storing and travelling, while the patented seat elevation brings baby closer to you.
