There's good reason that we chose to work with German brand Cybex as our official baby gear sponsor for 2018. Our love for its fashion-meets-function approach to designing car seats, baby carriers and strollers has been well-documented in the past (see here and here for reference), and although we know many of you safety-minded mamas have probably already been lusting after the company's chic products for some time, we wanted to get to know a bit more about Cybex's story, as well as some of our current favorite pieces and a few to look out for in the near future.
Cybex was founded specifically to offer a fashionable solution to safely carrying and transporting your littles, and in 2014 when the brand merged with acclaimed baby company Goodbaby, its reputation for products that were as durable and reliable as they were innovative and beautiful grew exponentially. As of this year, it's scooped up awards from JPMA Innovation and the Red Dot Institute, plus won TESTFAKTA's car seat safety test.
As for the products we're particularly loving by the brand, the Cloud Q rear-facing infant car seat is designed to adjust from infants (including very small/premature babes) to approximately 18-month-olds with adjustable headrests and removable inlays. Besides that, we're obsessed with the ergonomic design, which lets your little ones lay nearly flat, while staying fully supported and comfortable. In terms of safety, the seat has an energy-absorbing shell and side impact protection, which will keep you feeling extra secure when toting your tots around town.
The MIOS is a particularly lightweight stroller with a sleek, slightly retro design that's inspired by the work of iconic American furniture design duo Charles and Ray Eames. Not only do we love the fact that it's lack of bulk means it can be easily folded and carried around — which is essential when you're also juggling kids, diaper bags, groceries, and whatever else thrown at you on a given day — but this particular trait also means it will keep little ones especially cool and comfortable.
And if you're a sucker for something sporty, may we suggest seats and strollers from Cybex's collaboration with Scuderia Ferrari? In the Italian auto company's signature black and red palette, and cool, contemporary design, pieces from this particular collection will speak to mamas out there who have a need for speed — aesthetically speaking, of course.
As for Cybex's latest and greatest launches, the Eezy S Twist is yet another super lightweight, travel-friendly stroller that offers mamas the ability to swivel their baby a full 360 degrees with one swift hand motion, and the Eternis S is a convertible car seat that's designed to hold up to 120 pounds and has three modes (rear-facing, front-facing, and booster), which means it adjusts from infants to toddlers and beyond with ease. Keep your eyes peeled for these new products, especially if you're as enamored the brand's incredibly stylish and safe gear as we are.
