The beautiful Jane Rider arrived last week and was out and about today. The first thing that struck me about the Rider is how beautiful the fabrics feel. They are so lovely and soft – even the canopy isn’t a harsh feeling canvas but a gentle fabric that you just can’t help running your hands over. The seat lining is padded and plush, and the sweet ‘Memories’ design is modern whilst still retaining a childlike charm.
But going past how the pram appears, you want to know how it pushed… Right? Wow. That is all I can say. Wow. I want one. The one handed push is absolutely divine, even with two scooters hanging off the bar AND two grumpy preschoolers holding onto the sides!
My baby slept in it for a good hour or so before being awoken by a sneezing bypasser. Before falling asleep she seemed to really enjoy how tall the seat is – easily tall enough to push up to a table in a cafe.
The adjustable rear suspension was just incredible. This is the first pram I’ve pushed with adjustable rear suspension and it’s amazing the difference it makes. My baby had the smoothest ride of her life! The suspension coil at the back is simple enough to adjust as well, according to baby’s weight and the terrain you’re going over. Easy!
This pram will undoubtedly become big competition for the likes of Bugaboo. Yes, I said it. I went there. Not only does it push as good as a Cameleon, has an amazing beautiful range of designs, retails for less than $1k but it also has all accessories included, such as nappy bag, parasol, boot cover, raincover and pram liner.
Stay tuned for the full review in a couple of weeks, as well as a chance to WIN your very own Jane Rider.
