Britax unveils new B-Agile pushchairBritax B-Agile previews new one-handed fold system
24 August 2011
The new four-wheeled B-Agile is - according to makers Britax - the ‘ideal pram about town’. It goes on sale next month, so we've had a closer look at the spec to find out more.
Britax B-Agile pushchair
The B-Agile can be used as a travel system - an all-in-one type of pushchair that can be used with a car seat - and follows on from previous models including the B-Dual and B-Smart, both of which we've previously tested.
Like these systems, the B-Agile is compatible with Britax's Baby-Safe infant car seat, as well as the Baby-Safe Sleeper and carrycot.
The pushchair has a lightweight and narrow chassis for easy manoeuvring, and comes with the adaptors that turn the B-Agile stroller into a travel system. Britax also says the pushchair can be folded with one hand.
Which? first impressions
Which? pushchair expert Victoria Pearson said: 'We're looking forward to seeing how the B-Agile performs in our lab tests later on this year, and in particular whether its one-handed fold is as easy and practical as Britax claims.
In the meantime we'll be giving our hands-on impressions in a pushchair video First Look in September.'

Some of the key features of the B-Agile, according to Britax, include:
- an easy one-handed pull fold mechanism.
- spacious storage comprising the shopping basket and a large pocket in the pushchair's canopy.
- big and comfortable seat.
- multi-position seat recline including a lie-flat position making it suitable from birth.
- lightweight and narrow (58cm) aluminium chassis.
Buying the B-Agile
The Britax B-Agile comes with a free raincover and 'Click & Go' adaptors, and will cost £229.99. It goes on sale from September in a number of independent nursery retailers - find your local stockist on the Britax website.
It's available in two colours, 'black thunder' and 'chilli pepper'. The car seat, carrycot, footmuff and bumper bar are available to buy separately.
