The Silver Cross SurfSilver Cross Surf pushchair is a newly released product that boasts of excellent comfort and a design that is clearly inspired by spaceship design. It is a baby travel system that’s been long awaited by parents all over the world. The Surf is a lightweight pushchair that is suitable for all stages of infant growth, adaptable enough for virtually any situation parents may find themselves in. The Silver Cross Surf pushchair underwent a development process that took 2 years. After a long development stage, the product is proven to be of high quality and favoured by many families because it is lightweight, comfortable and easy to use for all moms all over the world.

The Silver Cross Surf pushchair was launched on March 2010 as part of a large scale effort of the company to meet the increasing demand for lightweight, sleek and manoeuvrable wheeled transport solutions. Needless to say, the Surf came through perfectly and was met with critical acclaim for its futuristic and clever design, as well as for its ease of use.

Features

The Surf comes with your usual seat unit that is designed to be compatible with infants in all stages of birth. This essentially eliminates the need for parents to purchase a separate carrycot. The Surf’s wheels also come with a special suspension system that’s air-sprung, specifically designed to make handling and your child’s ride extra-smooth on virtually any type of surface. This suspension is where the Surf system got its name, as the feel of the suspension is much like surfing, be it on concrete, grass or sand.

The Surf’s seat unit can also be positioned to be forward or backward facing, perfect for different situations such as sightseeing, sleeping and feeding.

Style

As for style, the Surf bears a design that may or may not be to your looking. This Silver pushchair comes in 3 colours, namely Black, Slate and Linen. It also features an urban and futuristic look one may expect to be something from an episode of Star Trek, yet is ergonomic enough to ease any feeling of alienation or awkwardness. The Surf excels at tasks any innovative pushchair is expected to handle, such as folding down into a compact package, riding well and being lightweight and easy to manoeuvre.

Delving Deeper

Behind its facade and usability is the reason why the Silver Cross Surf shines. The Surf system uses a magnesium alloy body inspired by the construction of spacecraft. The alloy is very strong, yet remarkably light allowing for slight touches on the Surf’s adjustable handle to change direction. The chassis is also strong enough to handle frequent repositioning of the seat unit, something which you’ll be doing over and over again after you realize its usefulness.

Accessories

Like any other Silver Cross pushchair, the Surf system can be complemented with various accessories, such as a carrycot, Ventura car seat, fleece blankets and more.

Silver Cross PushchairHaving a baby is a major event in one’s life. When a baby joins your family everything changes- but of course in a good way. Having a child is a blessing and it open a whole new chapter in your life, where someone else’s needs now come before yours. A baby needs a lot of attention and has special requirements that you need to attend to. You have to make sure that your newborn stays comfortable, safe and healthy. You need to introduce your baby to the world and get him outside, which brings us to the subject of pushchairs. There are literally thousands of pushchairs out there, and it can be really hard to choose. When it comes to your newborn, of course you want what’s the best for the baby. One of the most known brands that provide various luxury prams is Silver Cross and their quality has been proven for years. Even the royal family of England has recognised the quality and have ordered prams from Silver Cross. Have you considered a silver cross pushchair for your baby?

William Wilson founded the company in 1877—yes, the business has been around that long—the Silver Cross brand is a name known by generations of parents by heart. The company subscribes to a basic principle: to trust in their 130 years of experience and use only the finest materials known to man. Indeed, Silver Cross stands out for having a wealth of experience in the industry—the company already stood out as an exceptional manufacturer of wheeled transport systems for babies as far back as the early 1900s.

The company has undergone numerous changes over the years since its birth. During the turn of the 21st century, the company was suffering due to an increasingly competitive atmosphere and lacklustre sales of its traditional prams. The market for these old-fashioned systems was simply dwindling, as more and more parents sought foldable and compact wheeled transports. The company was saved after being acquired by David Halsall International, a toy manufacturing company that was already in charge of producing the junior range of Silver Cross strollers and prams.

Since then, the company has grown to become more capable at meeting the needs of their customers and adjusting to the changing times. The need for increased mobility and manoeuvrability was something Silver Cross managed to recognize just in time for adjustments to be done. The company responded by releasing innovative baby travel systems such as the 3D pram system and the Silver Cross Surf pushchair and pram. The results exceeded expectations, with the 3D and Surf becoming instant bestsellers.

When comfort, style and usability are concerned, the Silver Cross name is definitely on top. Consider it—you won’t regret the investment.
