Coya travel stroller by cybex

Summer is coming and that means summer travel! For those of you who are searching for a travel stroller that will amp up your style quotient, look no further than the Cybex Coya.

Although we posted about it before, we have only now received our first iteration of the fancy ride, so let’s make sure the marketing meshes with reality. Let the Unboxing Begin! In this article, we’ll give you our first impressions from unboxing to strolling it out the door. 

Spoiler alert! We love it.

What you’ll learn

The Features Of The Coya Travel Stroller

This stroller makes a very strong first impression. Especially in rose gold. It stands out from the crowd for its super stylish design, just in line with the Cybex Platinum Line: e.g. the Priam and the Mios. It makes a good looking companion to your primary stroller! But looks can only take you so far. Let’s check out the technical features!

First, the fold: It’s so intuitive. Usually with strollers there’s a learning curve to figure out how to do everything. Not for the Coya. I did it on my first try, with no videos or even clue what I was doing. Big plus.

Second, the carry strap: This is another place this stroller stands out. The carry strap is right where it should be and is cushy to boot. Slinging it on, the stroller feels nearly weightless on my shoulder (this is relatively speaking of course). 

Third, the recline: Wow, this recline is a snap. With some strollers you can struggle unthreading a strap to get the seat to recline. This is just a little button that you can pull and push up, easy peasy.

We like the recline to pass the sleeping kid test (would you wake them trying to adjust the seat)? This one passes with flying colors (meaning the answer is no!  Score one for a good afternoon nap!

Fourth, the no-rethread harness: This is pretty cool. Like the car seats, the Coya travel stroller features a no-rethread harness which is convenient (of course) as there’s no fiddling with the straps as baby grows. Buckle them up with the straps loosened and with one pull you can tighten to give your child the perfect fit!

Fifth, the value: This one is $499 for black or silver frames, and $549 for rose gold, and it comes with car seat adapters! Nice!

As for the other features everything is just what it should be

  • Underseat basket is good sized, certainly ample for a travel stroller
  • Seat is cushy and comfortable
  • Canopy is large, with a breezy panel and little visor
  • Integrated legrest
  • Breathable backrest

The Verdict On The Coya Travel Stroller

We love it. First of all, it’s the first one that matches Yoyo’s dimensional size, meaning it should be easy to get onto most flights. It is unique and beautiful looking and every detail has been thought through. 

This is a strong contender for MVP lightweight travel stroller, but of course, it will all depend on your needs and priorities. If you’re looking for a luxe lightweight to wow, you’ve found your ride!
