With over 20 years of revolutionising all terrain performance, cosmopolitan challenges new boundaries, and boldly looks to the future to ensure Mountain Buggy offers you what you most desire: a buggy that looks ready to take on off-road terrain, yet has the appeal to suit the cosmopolitan environment. A decison not made light heartedly, our engineering and design team worked endlessly to ensure cosmopolitan holds true to the Mountain Buggy DNA of manoeuvrability, durability, adaptability and simplicity.
Dynamic, sophisticated and groundbreaking, Mountain Buggy will continue to push the boundaries to ensure our products are relevant, and speak to your expectations and experiences. We listen, we develop, we deliver.
Delivering a unique 3-mode convertible seat, cosmopolitan is a welcome addition to the growing Mountain Buggy family. learn more
We listen. We develop. We deliver.
Mountain Buggy is renowned for designing innovative products, but it’s not just about introducing new products into the market. It’s also about the evolution of our current products, developed from feedback by parents and retailers around the world, delivering in pure functionality to pure style. We listen. We develop. We deliver.
Our legacy began in 1992, with a father's need to create a buggy with all terrain agility, to enable him to enjoy the New Zealand mountain trails with his baby. So with precision engineering he crafted the foundations of Mountain Buggy’s legendary platform.
The design and technology of our platform has evolved over the years to a deliberate design aesthetic influenced by clean lines and functional style.
From newborn to toddler, the mountain trails to the city streets – Mountain Buggy enables parents to live a life without limit.
phil&teds Most Excellent Buggy Company comprises a collection of brands, including: phil&teds, Mountain Buggy, and Mokopuna Merino.
The spirit of our original design lives on in our beautifully designed buggies of today, which remain true to our DNA:
adaptability From newborn to toddler, the mountain trails to the city streets – Mountain Buggy enables parents to live a life without limit. Our buggies, carrycots, travel systems, accessories and the freerider are flexible to accommodate different families with different needs.
simplicity The design and technology of our platform has evolved over the years to a deliberate design aesthetic influenced by clean lines and functional style.
durability With New Zealand’s rugged terrain as our constant inspiration, our buggies have always been engineered tough. We have a great reputation for durable, hard wearing buggies that just keep going... and going.
maneuverability Our buggies design offers uncompromised maneuvrability across all terrain with better tolerance of uneven surfaces and one hand control.
We are conscious of our footprint and continue to take measures to review our processes, materials and engineering.
All our materials are carefully selected to minimise impact on the environment with over 90% of all materials recyclable.
We test for toxicity, flammability, cadmium, lead and all parts are free of asbestos.
quality and safety tests
The design and technology of our buggies has evolved over the years, and our desire to produce premium products has led to high quality material selection, innovative engineering processes and a vigorous testing programme that includes exceeding all mandatory tests for worldwide safety standards. We are committed to providing consumers with a buggy they can rely on for years to come; here are some examples of our mark of quality.
We are proud of our proven track record and perform vigorous testing to guarantee our precision engineering, tough frame structure and identify the most durable materials available.
Our testing programme includes all mandatory safety standards as well as many of our own tests, including:
high quality material selection
High Quality Nylon 6 (PA6)
Steel blind rivets
innovative engineering processes
CNC controlled mandrel bending
modular, socketed construction
irregular surface test
This is a European standard that calls for a stroller to be put on a testing surface with 4 obstacles per cycle totaling 288,000 obstacles. Mountain Buggy does this test for a longer period of time totaling 400,000 obstacles.
We put our tires through rigorous testing to ensure proper wear and resistance. The tires are put on a tread that is similar to a belt sander to accentuate wear and tear, we want to ensure that the tires wear evenly.
We have developed a rigorous test to prove the strength and durability of the frame and handle adjusters on our strollers. This involves repeatedly dragging a fully loaded stroller backwards up a set of 4 stairs.
transport simulator test
Our product and packaging under goes a series of drop tests to simulate knocks and bumps during shipping during normal use. We drop our strollers on concrete floors from varying heights to ensure the products functionality remains in tact.
handle strength test
We attach a 33 lb weight to the handle of the stroller to ensure that the gears on the adjustable handle are durable enough to handle the most stressful of loads.
Kerb mount test
This test is a European testing standard that is used to determine the complete structure stiffness of the stroller while mounting a kerb or stair step. We simulate climbing and descending a kerb 3000 times with a full load in the stroller.
To prove Mountain Buggies can handle anything, we test plastic components of our strollers in temperatures ranging from 140°F to -4°F. This ensures that these components will not deform under extreme conditions.
