I like to check Aprica Japan site on regular basis because they're very good about updating their stroller models often and releasing new colors. Well, today, as I scrolled down the row of strollers, I could not believe my eyes. Aprica has a released a new stroller model, called Smoove. For the very first time in the history of Apricas, they've broken with tradition and ctreated a 3-wheel stroller with air filled tires. I can't tell you how excited I was to see this hybrid. This is equivalent to a Maclaren becoming all-terrain. Can you imagine such a possibility?
Despite looking radically different from other Aprica strollers, Smoove is still very compact and has a lot in common Aprica's smaller models.
Here are some features that make Smoove unique in it's class:
1. Compact for a 3-wheeler. Only 21.5" (55cm) wide!
2. Weighs only 9kg (20lb)
3. Huge canopy with UV protection
5. Adjustable leg rest
6. One hand fold (similar to Baby Jogger fold)
7. Huge storage basket
8. Ventilation system in the back of seat
9. 3D air mesh seat liner
10. Flat recline
11. Hand break
12. Air filled wheels
13. Bumper bar
14. Seat is 58 cm from the ground
14. Comes with infant neck and spine support inserts
Smoove will be available in 4 colors and is due in stores July 2015. Although the stroller is made for Japanese market, many baby stores in Europe and Asia do stock Apricas. If you live in US or Canada and have your heart set on this stroller, you can order online from Global Rakuten.
