Mountain Buggy pushchairs

Mountain Buggy's ethos is 'life without limit'. Since its conception in 1992, it has aimed to create all-terrain pushchairs that can handle the rugged outdoors. 

Although Mountain Buggy pushchairs have been designed to deal with going off-road, the brand also creates pushchairs for city dwellers.

It's not just pushchairs that Mountain Buggy has been developing – there's a buggy board called a Freerider, which can be attached to double up as a scooter, a baby carrier, car seats, and a travel high chair that can be clipped to most tables and bench tops. 

Take a look at our reviews of Mountain Buggy pushchairs.

The majority of the Mountain Buggy range are three-wheeled pushchairs suitable for all terrains. There are also a couple of double pushchairs.

All of Mountain Buggy's pushchairs are all-terrain travel systems, meaning they can be used from birth, when the pushchair seat is changed for a carrycot, which you buy separately from the pushchair. You can also attach a Mountain Buggy child car seat and certain Maxi-Cosi, Cybex or Phil and Teds car seats.

No matter which pushchair you get, you want to ensure that you buy a safe child car seat with it – we've found shocking differences between a good and a bad one. Take a look at our Best Buy child car seat reviews to find the best.

Mountain Buggy Plus One double review

This is an innovative double pushchair that can be used for two toddlers, or a toddler and a younger baby - as the rear seat can be laid flat. It can also be converted back into a single pushchair when one child has outgrown it. However, in double mode you can't attach a carrycot or car seat.

Read our full Mountain Buggy Plus One double review to see whether this pushchair will last you through years of travel with your kids.

Mountain Buggy Plus One review

The Mountain Buggy Plus One is more of a double pushchair that can be converted into a single, rather than the other way around. But if you are interested in how it performs as a single pushchair, check out our Mountain Buggy Plus One review.

Mountain Buggy Swift 2015 review

The updated version of the popular Mountain Buggy Swift, this three-wheeled pushchair sports large air-filled tyres to give a smooth ride on uneven surfaces. The seat can be used from birth, and it is compatible with travel systems.

See if the Mountain Buggy Swift 2015 trumps its predecessor in our full review.

Mountain Buggy Mini review

Mountain Buggy describes this three-wheeled pushchair as 'the ultimate city adventurer', introducing the concept of 'kerb pop', where the pushchair can mount the pavement without tipping back. 

This can be a common problem with three-wheeled pushchairs, but in our extensive tests on kerbs and other hazards, how did the do?

Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle review

Another three-wheeled pushchair, this travel system can be fitted with a carrycot and compatible child car seat. According to Mountain Buggy, it can be used on and off-road.

Did our lab test results reveal this to be a great all-round pushchair on any terrain, or did it struggle with rough surfaces and common city obstacles? Find out in our review of the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle.

Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan review

This travel system, which has a pushchair seat that can be converted into a carrycot, is a departure from Mountain Buggy's normal rugged pushchairs, as it's designed more for those living in the city.

Will this new design prove a great success, or not quite meet the mark? Find out in our Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan review

Mountain Buggy Nano review

Mountain Buggy says the Nano is the 'ultimate travel stroller' that folds small enough to go in the overhead luggage compartment on an plane. It can be used with a car seat, and the seat will apparently last your child until they're four years old.

Did our testers find it to be compact and easy to use, as well as comfortable for a child as they grow? Read our Mountain Buggy Nano review to find out.

Mountain Buggy Duet double review

Mountain Buggy has high praise for this double pushchair, saying that it's 'the world's best side-by-side'. This is a bold claim that we were keen to test in our lab and with our parent panel.

Find out how easy this pushchair is to fold and unfold, use every day, and whether it's reliable, in our review of the Mountain Buggy Duet double.

How we review Mountain Buggy pushchairs

Our experts in the test lab put each Mountain Buggy pushchair through more than 30 tests to check its strength, durability and safety in line with British Standards, including checking for finger traps and choking hazards.

We assess how easy the pushchair is to push, adjust for children of different ages and fold up. We also assess suitability for public transport and test to see whether there's space left in the boot of a standard family car once the pushchair is in there.

The final part of our testing involves a panel of parents (and their babies), who rate the appearance and features of the pushchair. They take each model for a spin to see how easy and convenient it is to manoeuvre on pavements, bumpy ground, up and down stairs and around other obstacles.

You can find out more about how we test pushchairs, and then see which ones came out on top to make them Best Buy pushchairs.
