Today we’re taking a look at the Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System. It comes with a new stepping go stroller and the on-board 35 infant carseat; has some great features, an unfold that you probably haven’t seen before and a really good price, so let’s take a look.

So let’s start with the stroller. The stroller has a roomy seat with a high weight capacity of up to 50 pounds, it measures 12 and a half inches wide with a 20 inch seat back and a measurement for the back of the seat to the top of the canopy of 26 inches, so you’re going to add your taller and your bigger children in the seat. It has an adjustable padded five-point harness with an easy to do buckle that all you have to do is push the button and it pops right open.

The reclines, a strap recline, what we call an infinite recline… you just have to pull this piece down and wherever you stop and lock this flay piece, that’s where the reclines are going to stop. Now it is a deep recline but it is not a complete flat recline, just so you know, that is how far back it goes; you’ll need two hands to put it back up, is slide that buckle piece up, stop wherever you’d like it to stop, and latch it closed. So that is the recline

We have a great baby tray here that is removable with buttons underneath, it’s swing awake and removable, but I know the kids like baby trays when they get a little bit older, such as the toddlers. This leg rest is not adjustable but it is a long leg drop. It’s about 12 inches from where the seat breaks to where they place their feet, so it’s well, it’s not adjustable, it is a lot of space for the long legged children.

Let’s talk about the basket; there is a large basket underneath the seat, it’s easily accessible from the back or you can get in from the sides for small items. You’re going to get a large diaper bag down here or a lot of baby essentials. Now the stroller rolls on hard rubber wheels, 8 inches in the back and 7 inches in the front. These front ones are swivel wheels but they have the ability to lock straight – if you want to take it on a little bit of what I call, mommy terrain, which is gravel, grass and playground mulch. If you’re going over a little bit of terrain you lock up straight it’s going to give the stroller a little more stability so it doesn’t get caught up in every bump, but if you’re just strolling around the city you’re going to leave them in swivel mode.

There’s also a parking brake in the back, they’re individual for each rear wheel, you just step down on the pedals and that’s going to lock it into place, lift up, and it lets it go free.

Let’s stop by the canopy; the canopy has two three panel canopy with an additional pop-out Sun Visor so it is a large canopy. There is a peekaboo window up here, it’s a mesh window so it allows air to circulate through the seat. There is a cover; the cover does not have any velcro or magnetic closures but it does seem to stay down. There is a parent tray right here with two cupholders and a space in the center for your cell cell phone, keys or whatever else you want to throw in there.

The handlebar it’s a foam covered handlebar, it is not adjustable but it is tall it is 42 inches from ground where I placed my hands so it is good for taller and shorter parents.

Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel SystemNow let’s show you the fold and unfold of the stroller because that’s what makes it really cool. To fold the stroller just put back your canopy, there is a strap and a seat that says lift a fold and that’s all you have to do… and it is one-handed and it has a standing fold. The standing fold is great because it sets on the wheels and not the handlebar or the canopy so it’s not going to get those dirty. I did weigh the stroller because it is so new, it weighs about 22 and a half pounds so it is definitely manageable, it’s on the lower end of a full-sized stroller so and I can carry it with that same folding handle, not too hard to get into and out of my trunk.

Now, I’m holding the stroller and this is what makes it the Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System and it is one of the coolest unfolds I’ve ever seen. I can do it with no hands, that’s right. I were carrying a whole bunch of stuff, I could set this up in no time, all I have to do is step on this pedal right next to it and it pops open locks into place. The only thing I have to do is lift the baby tray. Let me tell you that is really cool, that is the only kind of unfold I’ve seen like that so it’s really really easy, so easy you can do it without your hands.

Now before I get to the reason why it’s a travel system I want to let you know that there is AC pad in the stroller that is removable and machine washable so that is great for when it gets super messy. Now travel system it comes with the safety first on board 35 infant car seat. This is a lightweight infant car seat that has a removable seat pad that is machine washable as well, it has side impact protection, works with a baby 4 pounds all the way up to 35 pounds and we know that the infant car seats are always rear-facing, it has a nice thick canopy with an additional pop-out Sun Visor for added shade. I love that. And it works seamlessly with the step and go stroller, with no additional adapters – it’s all built right into the seat, all you have to do is refine your seat, pop it right in here, until you hear it click, it’s going to set on your baby tray and it’s clicked into place, so that’s going to turn your step and go into a travel system.

If you put back the bar here, the canopies overlap each other, so it gives your baby complete protection from the Sun or anybody looking in at your baby, so I really really love that, really easy to get back off of the stroller, just the lever back here, you give squeeze it and you are off and ready to go.

The safety first step and go travel system come in four different colors; this is the Arctic blue, will come in red, magenta and what they call – putty and it retail for 299 dollars, so that is pretty budget-friendly for an entire set of stroller and infant car seat.

Now I like this set a lot. I do I like the fact that it has that really cool no-handed unfold. I just think that’s really fun. I like that it has a big roomy seat and a tall handle and the basket underneath is going to fit a lot of baby essentials.
