So, when it comes to the Bugaboo Lynx stroller they finally combined a high-quality design with a lightweight chassis. All of Bugaboos prams are more tilting towards being heavy.
This one came out just after the Bugaboo Fox 2 which is mostly compared to. I have read reviews and information about this stroller, and it’s all positive.
For this article, I will give you my detailed review of the pros, and point out the cons. I will also compare it with another pram to see which one is better.

Bugaboo Lynx Review: Pram.
Product: Bugaboo Lynx Bundle.
Size of the Product: Two way of folding: 87.5 × 53 × 31.5cm. One way of folding: 60 × 60 × 84cm. Open Dimensions: 79 (l) x 60 (w) x 99 (h) (Weight: 9.4kg).
Handle Height: 99cm – 114cm.
My Rating: 9.5/10.
Wow! I can imagine many things are going through your mind right now. This pram does look wonderful with soo many things included.
Starting from birth you can use the carrycot, the seat unit or the car seat.
Although many would recommend using the bassinet instead because it offers a lie-flat position up to 6 months
It’s when your baby can sit upright.
Let’s first start with the sleek aluminium chassis and black overall frame. It’s sleek and can fit through many tiny spaces according to many sites.
Weighing only 9.4kg with the seat unit on makes it Bugaboo’s lightest stroller to date.
Have been proven from a review done on Mumsnet to be very lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. If you live in the city or countryside the multiple wheels will help out.
Although not all-terrain wheels it still can accompany you to different terrains, and it’s proven by many parents.
The 2 suspension wheels make the wheels glide smoothly without any problem. Proven by mums to offer a light push.
You also have the inner and outer tyres made out of rubber, which makes it puncture-proof and able to handle rougher grounds.
The two back wheels are much bigger than the two front wheels, which are also used to navigate the narrow terrains the city life offers.
More on to the Chassis.
When folding the chassis it has also been proven from reviews done on Motherandbaby and Netmums to be super easy and convenient.
It folds within seconds were the exact words that were used and this is truly relaxing. (Speaking from experience mine is not easy).
It has a hatch that’s pulled and folds immediately. You have two folding systems.
One with the carrycot or seat unit which still offers a compact fold according to sites I have read, and the other is of course with chassis only.
When folded it’s easy to carry and light to carry. Proven by a mum on Motherandbaby.
They emphasized more ongoing upstairs and using public transport.
When folded it can be stored in your boot, in tiny storage at home or when visiting your favourite restaurants. You can easily place it near you and bond with your little one.
Stands when folded.
A large big basket which many mentioned to be useful. It can carry 10kg of weight which is exactly like the Bugaboo Fox 2. (I did a review of this one).
Bring along many things on your journey out. No need to bring many bags or extra features because the basket is here for that.
With soo much weight, you would think it may be too much for the chassis but according to mums it still keeps a light feeling.
Pushing it will still be easy. It offers a flip flop brake and according to one mum, it can be used with your feet without your shoes.
Moving on from down to going upwards you have the bumper bar. Leather made and is there to keep the baby safe.
Moving further upwards a telescopic handlebar is made. Convenient for any parents really, but of course much convenient for taller parents.
Anyone can grab it and push. Whether is grandparents, extended families, friends and neighbours.
Moving on to the Carrycot and Seat Unit.
Both of the same features on the hood. A big large canopy with peek a boo window and airflow.
The window has a cover which will make it easier during winter. Your baby won’t have an open place for the cold wind to enter.
Of course, with airflow, it will be easier to breathe during summer days for the little one. The cot is big and comfortable with a mattress and apron.
The large sun hood has been proven to give shade to babies and keep them from the sun’s nasty UV.
Offers 3 colours, such as grey, black and grey and black. The Bugaboo Lynx offers a seat unit that faces rear or forward. When facing forward and the window will come in handy.
You can attach it however you want and what makes your baby or toddler comfortable.
It offers 3 reclining positions included the lie-flat position which is easy to adjust.
As reported by a mum it was easy to change positions while the baby was on board.
A 5 point harness system with chest pads, and when you are removing the harness you don’t have to disassemble all the way.
Has been proven easy to put on children and removing it is the same. Suitable up to 22kg which is around 4 or 5 years some even state.
So, you are in for a long ride. From birth up to your toddler becomes tires of the pram.
Bugaboo Lynx: Accessories.
Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna and Adapters.
Weighs only 3kg and is suitable from birth up to 13 or 15 months which is around 13kg of weight.
It’s I size complaint and goes with a base. Offers UPF50+ sun protection, 3 point harness, airflow with a large canopy, etc.
The Bugaboo Turtle by Nuna will make a nice addition to your stroller. It comes with adapters as well, you can fit the stroller with other car seats.
Changing Bag and Footmuff.
A Bugaboo changing bag is included. it will give you enough storage to fit all of your baby essentials. A footmuff is also good for the cold weather.
These both will match the colour you choose.
Cupholder and Bug Shield.
Having a bug shield can come in handy in many ways. You will protect your little one feom getting bitten.
Very important if you live in the countryside where the insects roam around all the time.
If you like to go out with a cup of coffee or tea then a cupholder can be super useful to your lifestyle. You won’t have to go buy it this one comes with it.
- Unlike the Bugaboo Fox 2, it cant be used as 2 mode wheels. meaning removing the front wheels and using the back wheels.
- None of the wheels are removable at all
- It does not offer all-terrain wheels as well.
- Rather expensive for a single stroller around £700.00.
- Reported to have a short wrist loop on the handle, which according to Netmums is the only cons they could find.
- Only limited to 3 colours and they are quite dark. Some might want in light colours.
- The seating frame is a bit tiny and cant expand like some other Bugaboo strollers ( An example Bugaboo Bee6).
- One mum found the folding quite awkward at first but got used to it.
- Bassinet/carrycot does not offer a lie flat position.
Bugaboo Lynx vs Babystyle Oyster 3.
Because these two prams have recently come out and they are pretty popular, let me try and see which of these two offer the better experience.
Although I have not seen a comparison done on both, it might be out there. Is the Lynx or Oyster 3 better?
Not all similar in design and style but like all high-quality strollers, they share many features and these are:
- Both are suitable from birth with lie-flat positions.
- Forward and rear-facing positions.
- Travel system convertible.
- Big and puncture-proof tyres.
- All suspension.
- Reclining positions.
- 5 point harness.
- Sun protection canopy.
- Ventilation system.
- Leather made bars.
- One brake system.
- Bumper bar.
- Adjustable handlebar.
As you can see there are many similarities because of their high qualities, but they also have differences.
Oyster 3 has ER foam tyres that offer a smooth ride.
It has an adjustable legrest, sun visor, zip extended hood, swivel lockable wheels, and the canopy has extra UV50+ sun protection and when folded it offers an auto-lock mechanism.
Its cheaper around £460.00 with a single pram, but is much heavier around 12kg and it has a max weight of 20kg.
When looking at the Bugaboo Lynx you have suitability up to even 5 years. It has a bigger basket, a 2 mode fold and it has a one-hand stair.
When looking at the canopy you have a peek a boo window to view baby or toddler when facing forward. It offers are more compact fold and it’s easier to fold and quick.
It has a more narrow design which can be better in many cases because of fitting it in.
However is more expensive, way more in, fact. Just like many Bugaboo strollers.
Both offer good features and despite them lacking some things their features evens out. Making both of them take the first spot.
Although the Bugaboo pram has been proven to last longer and has better fabrics and materials. Hence the price.
Is the Bugaboo Lynx Good?
So, this might be one of the most frequently asked questions related to this pram. For a short answer, yes it’s good. Why is that?
Well, looking at the other Bugaboo prams they are all highly expensive and most of them only come with a cot. for this one is the whole bundle.
Buying a single stroller will make it be like an Uppababy stroller.
It has a sleek design, dark and deep to keep it stylish and modern. It has excellent wheels and is narrowly designed to fit anywhere. Easy to fold and can stand when folded.
Easy to carry as well because of its lightweight. both seat and cot have amazing features to make your life for your baby comfortable.
Bugaboo Lynx can accommodate almost any lifestyle with a telescopic handlebar and multiple terrain wheels. Have the whole family join in.
Although expensive, it does come with a lot and will be with the family for years.
