I can only speak from trying out the mothercare orb and dh and I hated it. The one in the shop was broken, moveable parts were flimsy, and seemed too complicated to move bits about/change seat positions.

A friend has the Surf and loves it. I instantly dismissed it because the basket was too small though.

Bouncy chassis sounds exciting. That's not something I came across in my pram search. I now feel I'm missing out, like I've found out about a new flavour of ice cream.

I have an Uppababy vista by the way, and I love it

I don't think the surf feels bouncy.. just opinion. The Vista on the other hand, does to me, it has suspension some way up the frame, bigger wheels etc.

If bouncy is what you want air tyre mutsys are, the baby jogger versa with gt wheel kit probably will be. My mind has gone blank. Air tyres coupled with suspension is bouncier. Most classic chassis have that.

hi thank you for the feedback i tried the silvercross surf out in the shop and found it had a bounce were the prams were quite stiff , but it is a little expensive thats why i choose the mothercare orb as second choice smile

Prams feel completely different when they're not on a smooth shop floor.

What kind of terrain will you be using the pram on? Off road? Tarmac paths? That should affect your choice too.

Adjustable handles are good for parents of different heights.
