Silver Cross Coast 2019
Silver Cross began it’s history in 1877 and made one of the first baby carriage. Last year this brand entered the US market with Silver Cross Wave, this year they continue conquering the market, and now a new stroller Silver Cross Coast is available. This stroller like the Wave is single-double stroller but price is less and Coast is more compact.
Since the stroller is bright new, we will write first –
what is included:
- Black chassis
- Carry cot
- Seat unit
- Carry cot/ seat hood and apron
- Seat liner
- Rain cover
- Mosquito net
- Cup holder
Silver Cross Coast designed for children from birth until 55lbs. What is great that bassinet is already included. Silver Cross took into account the heavy weight of the previous model Wave and Coast came out with the weight with carry cot – 28,5 lbs and with seat – 27,75 lbs. The stroller is very stylish and really well-made. We will check all benefits and drawbacks right now.
Let’s see the features:
The bassinet is included. The carry cot approved for overnight sleeping and has a memory foam mattress, so you will have an extra sleeping place at home or when you are travelling. You can also buy bassinet stand . It will be helpfull at home or outside in the garden -so you receive high-grade baby cradle.
It comes with the apron that will protect your child from sun, rain and will arrange comfortable conditions.The bamboo fabric lining has natural anti-bacterial qualities, is hypoallergenic, and helps regulate temperature.
The stroller comes only with one bamper bar and you can use it as handle for transfering the carry cot. The bassinet can be used from birth and up to 20 lbs. I think it’s one of the best carrycot now on the market.
Silver Cross Coast has reversible seat that allows baby face to you or when it grows a little and wants to learn the world can face forward. Silver Cross has unique frame that has two-height riding position, allowing you to elevate seat or bassinet to bring baby closer and put second seat without disturbing the comfort one of the child.
The back rest has three adjustable positions including a full lie-flat position and an adjustable calf support. The roomy dimensions are suitable up to 55lbs. The leg rest is adjustable and has multiple positions.
Coast got ombre seatliner that going from dark to light – I’m not sure that you will actually notice this detail and after your toddler stains it with cookies you probably forgot about ombre at all. Its’ made of good jersey fabrique and of course washable.
Coast has really great extending canopy with pop-out peak and has UPF50+ sun protection.
I want to bring your attention to the fact that in this stroller there is only one hood for the bassinet and the seat. You can swap easily the hood but from other side if you have two children then you willl have to buy additional seat. The Coast bassinet is not sold separately, so the stroller cannot be used with two bassinets for twins.
Coast has plastic peekaboo window with magnetic closure. Can’t say if it’s good or not, but as for me, the mesh window is providing better aircirculaion and probably it’s only mine idea that plastik makes you feel a little more distantly. For example, when George was not sleeping and saw that I opened pekaboo, he touched the mesh and I did the same, so we felt our unity. It was something speciall for us, I’m not sure that with plastic we would felt the same.
There is also mesh panel that provides good ventilation during hot summer days.
The quick-release five point safety harness padded with soft-touch fabrique and has center release buckle.
In the centre of the handle bar there is a black-and-chrome aliminium centerpiece for height adjustment. The telescopic handle bar suits for shorter and especially taller parents who might need more leg room. The Coast’s leather details are machine-fabricated.
The bamper bar is removable and opens to allow easy access. As I wrote before basssinet and seat shares one bamper bar. The Coast’s leather details are machine-fabricated.
The basket holds up to 33 lbs, it’s not big- it’s huge basket and I think that it’s one of the highest weight limits for the baskets. The basket has easy access from the back and the sides.
The easy step on/off brake system is flip-flop friendly and has green and red indicators, it will not let you forget if you used it or not. Also as I wrote in other reviews, flip-flop brake let your shoes stay without scratches.
The chassis is available only in stylish black color. Coast chassis uses the highest quality magnesium alloy for maximum strength plus it has a four-way independent wheel suspension with puncture proof tires. The front wheels are swivel for easy manoeuvrability and can be locked straight. The wheels are rugged, puncture-free because of specialized filling in it and never-wear. The Coast has good size wheels that I can say it’s all-terrain stroller.
The folding system all-in-one works perfect and easy. You shouldn’t take off set/bassinet in order to fold it, you just need to push bottoms on handle bar and lower the stroller forward until it automatically locks. If you want to unfold it – you just unlock and pull the stroller back into the place. The system working fast but you will need both hands and the folded stroller can’t stand. Also you can see folded dimensions : L37″ W23.62″ H13.39″ – the stroller rather bulky and I’m not sure it will be easy to put into all car trunks.
Travel system option
Silver Cross Coast has universal car seat adapters that can allow you to click the below car seats directly onto your Coast Chassis. But you will need to buy it separately. It works with such car seats:
- Maxi-Cosi Mico AP, Mico 30, Mico Max 30
- Nuna Pipa, Pipa Lite LX
- Cybex Aton, Aton 2, Aton Q (Attention: Aton 2 does not fit lower adapters)
Double mode option
Silver Cross has patented function – seat/bassinet can go from lower to higher position by pushing two bottoms on the frame and flips up, so your child will be closer to you, also it makes more space for second seat/car seat and kid feel comfortable. There are 27 configurations available for the stroller. Most important is that both seats can be forward facing, rearward facing(both or only one seat), carry cot forward facing- seat rearward facing.
As I wrote before Silver Cross Coast has only one canopy so if you want to use it as a double stroller you need to buy lower seat(tandem seat) or car seat adapters. You cannot attach two bassinet on it. Coast weight capacity is 55 lbs for the upper toddler seat and 45 lbs for the tandem seat.
Dimensions and weight
Unfolded Chassis (Handle Not Extended) : L36.22″ W23.62″ H35.83″
Unfolded Chassis (Handle Extended) : L36.22″ W23.62″ H42.13″
Chassis Folded : L37″ W23.62″ H13.39″
The Silver Cross Coast is available in 3 colors: flint, limestone and tundra.
I would like to say that Silver Cross Coast is luxury stroller that converts into double stroller. If you buy it you will receive good-quality and stylish buggy. The price is $999 for single stroller and for double is $1298. I would like to mention one more time the drawbacks of Coast- one canopy and one bamper bar for the bassinet and the seat, no car seat adapters included, you can’t use two carry cot’s for the twins and the folded dimensions rather big. From other side, a lot of benefits, like perfect carry cot, roomy and reversible seat, telescopic handle bar,large basket, good wheels and a lot of accessories are included. So the choice is yours.
