Easy to get around the city

I absolutely love my new Swift stroller. We bought it because we travel a lot and needed a good sturdy stroller for our son to use. It's easy to maneuver, curbs aren't a problem and cobblestone sidewalks are a breeze with this stroller. The only thing I would like to see improved is the adjustment for reclining, you need two hands to do this and it can be tricky if your kids a light sleeper. This to me is a minor issue however.

Faulty break (and future designs improvements)
I bought the mountain buggy swift in August 2016. It is a great stroller, very small and compact and easy to manage on both outdoor trails and shopping/street strolling. When traveling, the seat reclining option makes it easy for your child to take a nap and folds up quickly with the touch and twist of one handle. I cannot be happier with the look and the feel. Cons: At around 6 months the break started to falter. As I was strolling through the city the break wouldn't click back into place and the stroller would be half in break mode and making a continuous clicking noise. I tried taking the wheels off to see whether any pebbles had gotten lodged beside the break wires, but even then there seems to be some misalignment with the wire of the break and the break pieces connected to the wire that stop the wheels. I see this as the main issue with the stroller. The stroller has a water bottle holder, but I would have also liked to have an option for coffee cup. The storage at the bottom is a bit small, although that is one of the reasons that the stroller is more compact.
Best buy ever

I love the Swift so much I have even been caught chatting to strangers in coffee shops about how good it is. It just does everything I need it to do. It's lightweight. It is compact and so so easy to fold up and store in the boot of the car. It is perfect for a newborn as the chair can lie flat. It grows with the baby, becoming a pushchair in due course. I have a mountain buggy sleeping bag & storm cover too. Both excellent purchases. I live in Cumbria so need a warm and waterproof buggy. I couldn't have asked for better. I've been up mountains (yes, really!), round lakes, through forests and along rivers. I whole heartedly endorse this product. Well done Mountain Buggy! :-)
Great little buggy!

We have both the urban jungle and swift buggies. We use the swift for travelling and out and about at shops etc - it stays in the car usually. We love the buggy - it fits nicely in the car, is easy to pop up and down and is just a really nicely made, solid buggy while still looking great. We have had issues with the swift handle tearing and having to be replaced - which may have been an issue with our version rather than the buggies generally - but it's an easy replacement and so far this handle is lasting fine. I bought one of the buggy liners from the luxury collection to style up the buggy a little more when our little girl came along. The only thing I'd say about swift to be mindful of is that it is 'shorter' seat wise than the urban and I have tall kids so they're out of the swift before they're 3yrs as their heads touch to the top of the hood - but I have super tall kids! We love Mountain Buggy as a whole - never had any real problems with their buggies etc.

I cant fault the swift, i brought with using the swift for long country walks and general around shops etc .I brought the carry cot with it also in a nice bright blue for my little 5 month boy old thinking this is going to last a long time for him .Boy was i right i love this buggy so much i'm only 5"2 and the buggy is the perfect size for me light in weight and easy to move around is really cant fault it .I had the perfect buggy for me and him to get out and about daily . I walk 4 to 9 miles every other day on rough ground for fitness and this is so smooth across grass , gravel , up hills amazing .I was walking the other day and a dog walker said you never get that down that path .He was so wrong the buggy handle with ease.When i come home from a long walk my baby boy is super warm in the carry cot and all i do is pop the wheels off and clean them and pop them back on afterwards.Shopping is so easy with this buggy also walking around the shops the buggy move's like a dream .Thank you mountain buggy 5 stars .Gemma Uk

I'm a first time mom and was struggling to figure out if there's a perfect stroller for me out there. I'm also short. When I say short, I'm talking about grade school looking, 4'10 short. I thought finding a stroller was going to be tough. Luckily I did my research and found this beauty! The Swift is a lifesaver! It's so light and compact! I also got the carrycot for it as well. Thought it was going to be hard to switch out the carrycot to the Swift's original format but t wasn't!
I get so many compliments too! Definitely going to upgrade to either the duet or +one when the husband and I go for baby number two in the future! Hopefully it'll be as great as the Swift is!
Exactly what they wanted.

All in all I am very happy. But we bought this a few years after some friends of us bought the same one, and there were made some weird changes. F. e. the system to attach the cover to the carrycot. It is now complicated to install. Before there were some push-buttons, now its a strange system with elastic-bands.
Swift 2015 disappointing

I recently bought the Swift and was to be perfectly honest REALLY disspointed. It's tiny despite the product information saying it's suitable to carry up to 4 years (25 kg) I'd like to see a 4 year old fit in without their feet scraping on the ground. its also very plastic and flimsy feeling unlike the sturdier older versions which I've used before. We will be lucky if it lasts one child. This really isn't worth the $700 price tag buy any stretch of the imagination. I'd never buy this product again. In my view, Mountain buggy is no longer associated with the great quality prams it used to produce.

I bought this buggy a few weeks ago to replace a cheap one I had gotten my daughter that just was not cutting it. The swift is light, small, compact and it looks fantastic! Most importantly it is VERY easy to push and does great in all types of terrain.
My daughter absolutely loves it and I can tell she is super comfortable in it! I'd recommend the Swift to anyone! Definitely big bang for your buck!
Very compact and maneuverable.

Bought this even though I had a brand new traditional stroller and am glad i did. The hard rubber wheels of the traditional stroller made it impossible to use on any sort of uneven ground. Took the mountain buggy to flea markets in a field and it has been easy to push thru it all!

In love with this buggy!! Super compact but still capable of going off road. Fits in my boot with heaps of room to spare. Carry Cot is awesome and my chubby 4 month old still fits. Im 5f6 and the handle is perfect height for me. Only flaw I have found is that the carry cot is a little tricky to take off, as you need to hold the clips on the sides open while pulling carry cot off all at the same time. But that is super minor and Im really happy with my purchase.

I was initially delighted with this product. Perfect size for urban living. Great manoeuvrability. My daughter appears comfortable. Sadly we had complete brake failure within months of purchase rendering it useless. Another annoying feature is that the sling seat uncouples from the chassis almost every time it is folded. Not worth the money, my advice is to buy a Babyjogger instead.

This is my second mountain buggy, as we needed to downsize from the plus one to the swift on moving from Australia to UK. They are in my opinion the best prams around. So well made, simple to fold, easy to manoeuvre on and off road, even one-handed. Great features on the swift like the peep hole and handbrake. Love love love this pushchair and would recommend to friends.

While pregnant the idea of getting a buggy was daunting. Our motto was "(s)he walks or gets carried". We carried until she walked, and then she walked. But we got the Swift for grandparents and to go running. Cross-country hill running. Great performer: easy to handle/steer with one hand, handles grass and tracks excellently, as well as the odd stretch of pebbles and sand. A great buggy if you need/want one. Would get the EVA puncturefree wheels with hindsight. But that's because I'd compromise on riding comfort (kids love the odd little bump) for my going maintenance-free. Heard the 2016 version packs much smaller, so bingo!
Perfect Lightweight Stroller

I spent a lot of time researching strollers that are lighter but still good all-terrain strollers and narrowed it down to this and the Baby Jogger GT mini. Ultimately we went with the swift as it was on sale but love it! My daughter isn't overly fond of the front facing so lay need to consider another stroller that has parent facing option but hoping she will start to like it more and it is very light weight, easy to push and fold up.

Compact, easy to collapse and set up with one hand, sturdy, good sized basket, useful accessories and easy to get the baby in and out. And it looks cool. And it's great on cobbles and rough surfaces. I love it
Sturdy, comfortable and reliable!
I am now using the Swift for my second child and it still impresses me. I haven't had to replace a single item on the buggy and I have used it almost every day for 3.5years. Due to its size it is easy to get on and off buses and tubes and the manouverability is hard to beat. I also have a maclaren techno which I used for the nursery run as I travel in peak hour and the smaller wheelbase makes it easier to find space on crowded trains. However pushing it is like pushing a full unbalanced wheelbarrow in comparison to the swift! If you want a functional buggy that doesn't take up too much room or break the bank then this is the one for you!! I also used the cocoon for my 2nd child and it fit neatly and safely and much easier than using a basinette when I needed to let my older child use the buggy.

The perfect size
Written by: Linds

I am embarrassed to say that the 2016 Swift was my third pram purchase, but boy was third time the charm! The wheels are the best - I go from rough cobbled city lane ways to bush walking paths to the beach and they provide the smoothest ride for my daughter. The ease of fold-up / -down is amazing, and it sits safely up on its back wheels (we store it in a hallway) or lying flat (in the car boot). I love the hand-break (it's a much smoother mechanism than the others I have tried), and the padding / grip on handle is perfect -- and I love the adjust ability of the whole handle bar. Best of all for me (I am 5'3"), it is a perfect, manageable height and size.
Excellent single & double strollers!

Over the past two years we have purchased a double stroller AND gifted a single Mountain Buggy stroller. We just love the prams - they are excellent quality: sturdy yet agile, solid framing, all seating and sun cover made of good quality canvas that doesn't fade from exposure to the elements or stain from kids' messes! I highly recommend! Well worth the money.
One thing to note: we have used the reclining regular seat from newborn to toddler. For newborn we purchased foot muffs which laid flat in the stroller with the seat fully reclined. The babies were snug and safe & it saved us the cost of buying the newborn baby basinnet.

We have had the Swift for 3 years, it is a great product which has not let us down.
In winter it works great on snow and in summer when we travel it rolls wonderfully on dirt roads. In the city its maneuverability is essential for our lifestyle.
I can't keep count of how many people I have recommended this stroller to.
Just get it, you won't be disappointed, we have a newly born and will get a new one!

After having my first child and using a stroller that wasn't up to my expectations, I borrowed a friend's MB Swift and realized how much easier it could be. I have researched seemingly thousands of strollers, and keep coming back to this model. The Swift is sturdy, light, versatile, and made of be ry high-quality materials. On top of all this, it fits in the back of my tiny car's trunk. I look forward to utilizing this stroller for our next baby, due in a couple of months, as my firstborn rides the Freerider behind!

We love our Swift!
The Swift fits perfectly in the car, it is not crazy big, so it fits in the the tight gaps that you want to get through in shops.
We use the Swift on gravel in the park and also on farm tracks. The Swift handles it with ease and still looks and works the same as the day we purchased it.
We also purchased a rain cover and sun cover to go with our Swift, we would recommend doing that with any buggy you buy, anything to make your child feel comfortable, no matter the weather.
Great, Lightweight & Versatile Stroller

This stroller is the bomb! Super compact and lightweight, yet very sturdy. Perfect for the urban resident who sometimes deals with rough terrain conditions (like our notoriously long Canadian winter).
The only downside of the Swift is that combined with the carseat (ours is a MaxiCosi Nxt), the stroller's canopy is pretty much useless to cover the other half of the seat (like most travel systems will do).
But beside that, it's the good stuff.

Great pram! It is great on all surfaces. It never gets stuck on uneven footpaths. I find it easy to use on a few steps etc. Good storage underneath. Very durable. Would recommend highly. Only thing I can fault is the shade cover. I wish that the shade could extend further - as my child's feet and legs are often in the sun. I bought the sun shade cover but it's awkward to put on and child doesn't really like it.

This buggy is great, very sturdy and great for running. My little girl loves it.
Only down sides are that its not perfect when it needs to be folded (quite cumbersome/doesn't fold down very small) - although I very rarely need to do this, so not much of a problem for me. Oh, and the tires don't last very long - would be better if they were made thicker/stronger, need replacing more often than I would have envisaged - although mine does get a lot of use.
Even with these issues, am happy with the product and would definitely buy again.

I bought the Swift with the Carry Cot for my baby boy born in February of this year. It has been amazing. Pretty easy to assemble, true one step fold and open, great car seat adapter, and I can switch from car seat to pram quite easily. The tires are air filled and can go on gravel and grass without problems and as for around town, it can go into any shop, even the change rooms at some shops! I wanted a strong, sturdy, compact stroller that should go off road and that is exactly what I got! I also used the carry cot as the bassinet for our boy when travelling. And when folded it easily fits into my hatchback! Can't say enough about this stroller! And the price is better than many of the "designer" strollers out there! Can't wait to take it to the mountains.

Lots of great thing in this buggy. Really like the air tires on a lightweight stroller which is hard to find. Also magnetic peekaboo window instead of Velcro and easy to use harness. What I didn't like, the gap between the canopy and the frame. Seems some strips of Velcro would be an easy fix and make the stroller seem more finished. Also, the recline is unnecessarily fiddly. Lastly, the canopy has okay coverage, but not great. Fabric was really soft and plush but not sure how easy it would be to keep clean. Overall, a good stroller with just a couple of niggles that kept it from being perfect

We chose the Swift because we live in a mountain town and needed a lightweight all terrain stroller to go with our lifestyle. The swift is also compact so it fits in our tiny hallway!
We also have commend mountain buggy on their customer service! Megan in particular was most helpful in assisting us in tracking down a missed delivery and in finding out information for us about an older, secondhand model we had hoped to restore. We lost our initial purchase in a house fire and were given an older model which we thought would work. In the end, we decided to purchase brand new again as we knew it would be a good investment, because of our great experience with Megan.

It's a bit to low so it looks like a doll carriage and since I'm tall i need bend over so it's a bit uncomfortable the back is a bit to wide it doesn't stroll into my walk in closet and because the front is so narrow while pushing it it feels like u have a lot of space but then bump in in the back because to wide! The company also doesn't warranty the tires which is a problem cuz the tire wheels is a gr8 push but ilthere has to b some kind of warranty!!

I bought our coral swift in November as a back up pram, my 3 year old is outgrowing the duet so I got it just for my baby as it's easier to take in and out of the car etc. It is a great buggy. Compact, easy to manouvre and looks awesome. I was excited about the cool new colours so purchased the coral as it is something a bit different. Now, I don't use this buggy often. I had an Urban Jungle (NZ made) for my first child which didn't fade until after almost 4 years of daily use. The new Swift, after less than two months of part-time use has already faded ridiculously! I am super disappointed as I love the buggy and I love the company but I just don't understand why they are starting to take such cheap shortcuts on materials. The difference in today's buggies compared to my 2009 is huge. Besides the fading I found that the storage uder the buggy is now so flimsy and has no zip up pockets or anything whereas my 2009 one had a thin plastic board within the fabric making it much sturdier and had awesome little compartments for bits and pieces. The storage also had a wee hole in the middle so any spilt liquid was easy to get out but now nothing. Also, I am still so shocked as to why a tyre pump is no longer included with the buggies! The frame is awesome, just wish they wouldn't change things that don't need changing.

I recently purchased the new mountain buggy swift and I can honestly say I have no regrets! Its worth every penny I paid for it! I chose the swift because I wanted a small compact but sterdy stroller and that's exactly what I got. It's east to put up and down and it's easy to store, It's easy to push, rolls along so nicely and it turns so smoothly it's easy to take in shops and push around the isles. And most importantly it's comfy and safe for my 8 week old boy, the belt holds him in and he sleeps like a dream in it!

I bought this buggy about six weeks ago and it's got some great features:
- easy to put up and collapse down
- great kerb pop, very easy to manoeuvre
- easily adjustable seat height - from lying flat to sitting up
- easy to adjust harness straps
- peak through window
- brake on the handle bar!!
- very compact compared to other buggy styles
Main criticism would be that maximum height the handle bar height is low, you wouldn't want to be too tall! I'm 1.68 cm, and I think that's about as tall as you could be to still be able to comfortably push it.

I love mountain buggy, I drove my first as a nanny 1998, and had the double buggy for my older children 2008. The new swift purchased for my 1,5 year old is amazing. Easy to fold, small, a dream to push. My daughter sitts very comfortable in the pram. We travel a lot, and also have a dog. This is a proper all round pram that can be used in London city on buses and the tube as well on as long country walks. only negative is handle bar is to low, I'm 176 cm tall and would have liked it to be slightly higher.

We had been happy with the Swift until recently. We found that the size and weight were great given how versatile the buggy is, and we found it to be very functional and practical. All the positives have been somewhat overshadowed by the stitching failing on the seat. We had not used the seat much, but sadly it was out of warranty. The stitching went in an area that is normally hidden, and so we just did not see it earlier, which is very frustrating.The way in which it had failed, and the fact that it is on both sides shows that it is clearly a design flaw, and not something that was just wear and tear. Having now looked at the replacement part page on the website I am clearly not the only person to have had this exact same issue. It is a good buggy completely spoiled by poor quality.
