Best CYBEX compact strollers

Being a parent is a full time job and even the simplest of errands can require a strong coffee and all the necessary gear! But with a compact stroller, everything becomes that little bit easier - travelling, nipping out to the ships or even spending a full day out.

Initially, many parents opt for a full-sized pushchair, which can quickly become cumbersome when out and about or as your little one grows. A compact stroller offers many of the same features as a larger pushchair or stroller, but with added convenience and ease of use.

So, is a compact stroller worth the investment? Let's explore some of the benefits it offers and find out for ourselves.


As the name suggests compact strollers are just that – compact! Unlike a full sized pushchair or pram their small size makes this kind of stroller much easier to store away in the home, place in the boot of a car or pop into the overhead compartments. They are also easy to push and manoeuvre around shops, airports or busy streets.


One thing that we love is that compact strollers are typically very lightweight making them easy to lift and carry and perfect for people that have to store their stroller on public transport or lifting them in and out of their car boot.

Great for travel

As compact strollers are easy to store and are lightweight they make travelling, at home or away, a breeze. Fitting easily in to the boot, the footwell of the car, or folding to store on a busy bus or train can be a really convenient feature for a stroller, and some of CYBEX’s latest product like the CYBEX Orfeo even fit the overhead storage on a plane or have a convenient storage bag or carry handle. For a frequent traveler the most convenient stroller has to be lightweight and compact.



Whether it’s the backrest or footrest it’s important that your choice of compact stroller can adjust to keep your child comfortable. A fully adjustable backrest will ensure a comfortable sleeping position and the adjustable footrest allows your child to lie down with their feet elevate to ensure a comfortable rest.

All season use

A compact stroller isn’t only ideal for holidays, they are also really great for everyday use. So in addition to fabrics with UPF sun protection and adjustable sun canopies, many of CYBEX’s compact strollers come with a rain cover making them ideal for use in any weather, at home or away.

Why choose a compact stroller from CYBEX?

With a large selection of travel and compact strollers on the market it’s important to remember that all compact strollers are not made equal.

The latest range of compact strollers from CYBEX offer a range of functions and features, so whether you are looking for something that is airline cabin approved or has a parent and world-facing seat you will be sure to find the best compact stroller for you from the Cybex range.

Their strollers are available in a range of on trend colours, come with a raincover, and feature the innovative one-pull harness function - perfect right?! Most of the CYBEX strollers also allow you to attach an infant car seat such as the Cloud Z2 i-Size to make transitioning from the car to the city as smooth as possible.

There is also a full range of accessories including footmuffs, parasols and cupholders available to create your perfectly customised stroller for all year round.

Which CYBEX compact stroller would be best for me?


CYBEX Orfeo compact stroller

The newest addition to the range from CYBEX is the Orfeo. This ultra-compact stroller is lightweight and perfect for travelling from birth and can be used with an infant carrier, including the Cloud Z2 i-Size.

In addition to being airline cabin approved, so you can take it on the plane with you and weighing in at only 6.3kg its easy to lift into the overhead locker, car boot or footwell. The Orfeo has a one-hand, one-second fold making it really quick and easy to fold, the carry handle allows you to easily pop it on your shoulder and carry it.

Although it folds into a really small package, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the generous seat size, that lies flat and the adjustable footrest.

CYBEX Libelle

CYBEX Libelle

The award winning CYBEX Libelle stroller has one of the world’s smallest folds! Similar to the Orfeo the Libelle is also an ultra-lightweight pushchair and perfect for travelling. Folding with two hands in both directions, this stroller is suitable from 6 months, or birth when used with an infant carrier up to 22kg.

The CYBEX Libelle is also cabin-approved and weighs only 6kg - one of the lightest on the market! Despite its ultra-compact fold the seat size and adjustable footrest make this stroller comfortable for your little rider.



The CYBEX Beezy is an ideal stroller for when you are wanting something smaller than your travel system for the school run, days out or a second set of wheels at the grandparents’ house. Being compact, you can use it for holidays as well as a day-to-day stroller.

There’s a good sized basket for all of your baby and toddler essentials and the all-wheel suspension and larger wheels will take you smoothly through the day. When you fully recline the seat and raise the leg rest, you’ve got the perfect roomy space for a newborn or toddler to take a nap.

CYBEX Eezy S Twist +2

CYBEX Eezy s Twist

Offering something rarely seen in a pushchair, never mind a compact stroller - the Eezy S Twist +2 can be parent or world facing with a 360 degree swivel! Just lift up the footrest and rotate to your preferred position. It’s also different from other strollers as it can be used from birth in a few different ways - with the parent facing, lie-flat seat, a full sized carrycot, a cocoon or your infant carrier on the frame.

The extra functions mean that this is the largest fold in the range but still compact enough for travel. The UPF50+ hood on this stroller is very generous with an extension panel to extended it over your child. This stroller is a great, substantial option if you need a compact travel system for your newborn baby or are looking for a smaller option for your second child that still offers all the benefits of a compact stroller.
