Designer Pushchair Alert: Concord Neo Carbon
If you’re the type that coughed a lot or even swooned at the price of a Stokke Xplory then I would avoid reading the last line of this post… If you’re the type that has to have the pushchair that hardly anyone else has or just happen to be feeling flush during the credit crunch, this could be the pushchair for you. For me it is way out of my price range…
The Concord Neo Carbon is a first of its kind in the pushchair market because the frame is handmade made from high tech carbon, the sort used by the aerospace industry. This makes it very lightweight, so highly manoeuvrable but it also minimises vibration which makes for a really smooth and comfortable ride for your child.
The lining is made from the finest merino wool, a fantastic eco friendly and skin friendly all season material in either black or white, with matching leather handles, and a choice of two types of wheel, air cushioned tubed tyres or solid foam tyres with the latter making it even more lightweight. The design is innovative and pure and when folded is very compact. Only a few are handmade in Germany, so you know it is for the elitist amongst you.
It comes with a complete travel system – buggy, pram and infant carrier and certainly sounds pretty spectacular if you are seriously design led.
It is not readily found in the shops but I have found it available at Babybirds for £999.00. I have seen reports of it costing up to £1699.
