The Eagle 4S Duoset from Hauck has the grand title of being the lightest reversible stroller at only 6.9kg, suitable for new-borns it has a premium look about it and comes in four good-looking designs, Melange Grey Denim, Grey Black, Grey Pink and grey.
Featuring a softly padded seat that is easy to mount in both a forward and rear facing position, for protection against the weather there is a large and extendable canopy, with a peekaboo window that is UV resistant for bright sunlight and waterproof for rain. To ensure air circulation, the canopy’s zipper can be opened to uncover the mesh part to let cool air in and hot air escape and to avoid those nasty bugs getting at baby there is a pull over mosquito net.
One clever idea is that when baby has outgrown the pram configuration the cover can be converted to a boot cover by using the included seat pad, giving it a second life, this can then be used for the stroller seat. The seat pad is made from a soft material and comes with openings for the stroller’s 5-point harness, it is large and spacious (72 x 34cm) making it suitable for up to 25kg. The stroller’s push handle can be adjusted in height but only between 91 – 104 cm which isn’t a huge range so this could still be too low for tall parents.
The suspended comfort wheels are detachable and puncture resistant, both the front wheels swivel making for easy manoeuvres in tight spaces and lockable for better control over uneven terrain, the wheels also feature reflective detailing. When folded up the stroller measures up at 66 x 55 x 25.5 cm so it will still take up a rather large part of your car boot, it can be carried over the shoulder by the strap but it still isn’t the most user friendly for regular trips on public transport.
It is compatible with both the iPro Baby (i-Size) and the Comfort Fix (ADAC: GOOD) infant car seats, both car seats need the Eagle Adapter Comfort Fix/iPro Baby to be fixed on the stroller chassis. The Eagle 4S Duoset is not the most compact when folded down, but it is certainly lightweight, it has a great stylish look, versatile wheels and provides a comfortable, safe and roomy spot for baby to ride from day one.
