The new Cybex E-Priam is simply mind blowing! We just had Cybex down here this morning to show us exactly how it works and guys – it’s really as cool as it sounds. And it really works!
The Cybex E-Priam takes the beloved Priam3 stroller and ampts it up with a built-in engine that kicks it when you put any sort of resistance on the handlebar. The engine easily can be switched on or off so you can decide when you want to use it. There are hidden sensors beneath the leather on the handlebar that feel you pushing and that is what turns on the engine in the wheels. The battery pack holds from 7-24 hours of charge and simply snaps off from the rear axle bar to be charged. Say you are pushing on rough terrain, switch on the engine and continue to push. You will feel the stroller actually start to move itself!
DESIGN & WEIGHT
If you put the Cybex Priam and E-Priam side by side, you will notice the difference in both the handlebar and the frame. The handlebar on the E-Priam is a bit more squared, and of course there is a thicker rear axle bar with the engine. The actual seats on both strollers are the same. If you already own the Priam stroller and really want the new technology, you can purchase a new E-Priam frame and use with your existing seat. The E-Priam weighs just 5 lbs more than the standard Priam stroller, because of the engine and battery pack. That weight isn’t that significant, considering that the stroller will be pushing itself (wild!). The Priam3 weighs 28 lbs vs the ePriam at 33 lbs.
So not much has changed between the Priam3 and the E-Priam they both still have an easy one handed self standing fold although in the E-Priam parents might want to charge the battery base after it’s all folded down so it can be all recharged for the next use!
The canopy for both is the xxxl UPF 50+ sun canopy with a peekaboo window to protect you little one from the harmful sun rays.
Nothing has changed between the E-Priam and the Priam3 seats and we are so happy about it! Both seats are reversible ans have a one-hand recline to a near flat position while facing either direction. The seats can accommodate children 3 months and up to 55 lbs and can easily accommodate taller children. Both seats have an adjustable leg rest so your child should always be comfortable and align with standard table heights, making dining out convenient and easy. Safety is important so this stroller has a padded 5-point harness with center release buckle. There is a leather-look bumper bar which opens to the side for easy access to the seat
WHEELS & PUSH
While both strollers have never-flat foam filled rubber and All-wheel suspension it is important to note that the E-Priam allows for an easier smoother ride when the electronic components in this stroller is on. In addition both stroller have lockable swivel and a two-wheel mode for strolling over loose terrain like sand and up staircases.
