Product information

A lightweight and compact contemporary pushchair that includes a separate carrycot so you can easily create a pram. Flexible, functional and smart, it will take you and your little one from birth to the toddler years.

The Wayfarer is compact and has a one-piece fold down for easy transport. Little ones will be seated comfortably with the multi-positional recline seat that you can operate with one hand. What’s more, the seat can be placed in either a forward position for a little interaction of rear facing, for when they want to explore the outside views.

Made from a lightweight aluminium makes this pushchair easy to manoeuvre whilst being robust. The 4-way suspension gives a smooth ride for both parent and child and the the alloy swivel wheels provides great agility in those hard to navigate tight spots. With the adjustable handle height parents can steer with one hand and the easily accessible step brake allows for full control when stopping and starting. Parents will love the handy cup holder and spacious shopping basket underneath, ideal for storing on-the-go essentials.

Q & As


Silver Cross Wayfarer Base Unit 3.3 5 7 7
Good value for money I have been over the moon with the Wayfarer since I got it 2 months ago. The box had the carrycot included with it along with all the other pieces to make the pushchair, so my baby was able to be in it from the start. I had to buy the hood and cosytoes by itself, but that was ok as they fit on the carrycot aswell. My baby is very comfortable in the pram and loves going out for walks. 18 March 2014
Great Pram We got the black Wayfarer for our first baby last September and we have been very pleased with it. The baby carrycot that came with it was very good for the first few months, and it was very easy to take on and off and carry around. We also got the carseat to go on the pram, and it was very easy to use. My daughter has loved her car seat, although she seems to be getting quite big for it now. Now that she is older, we have been using the pushchair every day. It has been brilliant so far, and has been easy to put in and out of the car. The only problem is that we bought a black colour pack because we didn't know we were having a girl! I will choose a brighter colour for my next baby! 17 March 2014
Good pram system I am writing this review following six months of daily use of the Wayfarer. I have been quite happy with the Wayfarer overall and the benefits I have found are: The chassis folds up to a smaller size than many other similar pram systems, so great for getting into my small car boot in one piece. The chassis is really lightweight compared with many other similar systems on the market- again making it easy to get in and out of car boots etc. The chassis has a fairly small turning circle- good for getting around tight spaces in shops. The carrycot is nicely padded, keeping a newborn snug and well supported. The whole system looks good- whether in use with carrycot, pushchair or the carseat. What's not so good: The small solid wheels make it tricky to use this pram on grass, gravel or other uneven surfaces. When in use in carrycot form, it's hard to fit anything substantial into the basket at the bottom. Fine with the pushchair seat or carseat, though. A small thing but the cup holder is pretty useless. It doesn't stay in place when clipped on. There's no raincover for the carrycot, just for the pushchair. Overall I would say that is a very good pushchair/pram for use in straightforward urban/suburban areas, but probably not the right pram for you if you're planning plenty of use off pavements and roads due to the smallish, solid wheels and hard suspension. 13 March 2014
Really disappointing I was soo happy and pleased when this product came out and couldn't wait to get it. When I did get it 7 and a half months ago it was fine up until a few months the front wheel went wonky and did not go straight so I took it back and was replaced and now im still not happy because it does not go straight as it slightly turns to one side, very bumpy ride and the wheels are not big enough. The whole design for chassis needs to be redesigned. Don't know what im going to do now! 04 March 2014
Sturdy with good features. Summary: We bought the Wayfarer for our first born back in August 2013 and after extensive use it has proven to be a great stroller. The unit itself looks good and the seats provide good support for the baby. Pros: > Quick fold action in one movement. > Lots of additional accessories i.e. cup holder, cot seat and 1yr+ seat, cot inner mat. > Quality of materials used. > Good variety of seat positions. > Big basket. Cons: > Although basket is big, accessing it can obstructed by the seat. 19 February 2014
Really dangerous product I brought this pushchair 7weeks ago and all I've had is trouble the wheels are to small and is very hard to push and goes to one side when pushing and yesterday i was crossing the road and my whole pushchair tipped over! Lucky my baby was strapped in otherwise god knows what could of happened! The wheels get stuck on everything on the pavement and road and is a very dangerous product and I hope silvercross will fix this! Do not recommend this product. 29 January 2014
Good quality but with a bumpy ride We have been using this stroller for 2 weeks now with the carrycot for our newborn baby. Pros: We like the usability of the stroller, namely how easy it is to fold and to attach the carrycot. Cons: We like the big basket but it is somewhat difficult to access it with the carrycot on. The handle bar does not fix in its lowest setting, which makes it tricky to put the stroller in its upright position. Very negative: The ride is too bumpy and the wheels are too small. We live in central London and even just by riding on the pavements the stroller shakes too much making it uncomfortable for a sleepy baby. Moreover the wheels are too small and the fact that it does not have treads makes it difficult to go over small heights (as an example the stroller gets "stuck" on the parking yellow lines on the road). Next time we will buy a stroller with bigger wheels, air tires and specially with suspension for a smoother ride. 01 September 2013
