Mutsy EasyRider Review

Purple Power! 
I know I've been reviewing purple strollers all year, but check out the glorious shade of this one! 
Royal comes to mind. Regal.

   A rolling throne fit for a king, or queen!
  It's the Mutsy EasyRider, and it happens to match my DD's Irish dance dress perfectly!
What sets this one apart from most other umbrella strollers are the single front wheels. Makes it imminently maneuverable. 
Love the chrome accents!
 I also love the squishy foam handles, which makes it very comfortable to push.
I have tested it out on the StrollerQueen Obstacle Course, and have been very pleased with it's performance outdoors, on less than smooth surfaces. 
It isn't even the least bit wobbly or rattly, two things that can really set my teeth on edge. 
With a nod to our still slowly recovering economy, it is well priced, for all of it's features.  Definitely looks more expensive than it is.

Has a peek a boo window with velcro closures. 

A pretty deep recline, with an extendable legrest.
Oh, the black cloth zipper thingies are hinge covers. Not crucial, in my opinion, as long as you make sure little fingers are out of the way when you are folding it. But it is there is you want it.

  Look how much room StrollerPrince 2.0 has to grow. The canopy clearance is exceptionally high--a very tall 28". That's about as tall as it gets. And the EasyRider is also about as narrow as it gets, at 18".

You recline it by squeezing both sides of this black widget thingie, and sliding it down. Reverse the process to make the seat go up again.
And the seat is pretty upright. That makes babies who like to look around and see everything very happy. And when baby's happy, Mama's happy (or Dad, or Grandparents, or babysitters.)

You fold it by unlatching this black clamp thingie and pulling it up, then kicking down on the side lever that sticks out. OK, my words are really off today.
It stays closed, thanks to this automatic lock. 
 That means it is a good choice for travel, because you don't want your stroller opening up in the belly of the plane, train, or bus. 

It also makes it easy to carry on subways, or to lift in and out of the car.  

Then it folds typical umbrella style, into a very compact package.   
 Which means that cramming it in the back of your car, with all the rest of your gear, isn't a hair-raising experience!
