Hi All,

we have finally went and checked all the prams, and so far we really liked Agile Plus by Steelcraft.

We were thinking to get it from Amazon (much, much cheaper) however wanted to know whether anyone else bought it from Amazon and what was their experience..

After spending an hour on the internet, we believe B Agile is the Australian version for Agile Plus, could anyone confirm that?

Also, we wont be getting an infant carrier, and was wondering whether the harness can be removed in a fully reclined position (are we supposed to harness / strap infant in at all times?), and if the pram will come with something that we can put on top of the harness for the baby to sleep in?

Would US version of this pram comply with the Australian and New Zealand standards?

Thanks all in advance!

Yes, same pram:)

The US one might not have a tether strap, but you can buy them for about $10 and add-on- easy!
If it does,'t haVE RED BRAKES - JUST PAINT, OR WRAP SOME RED ELECTRICAL TAPE....oh, sorry for caps lock, in a hurry!

I'd buy a BJCM over the Agile though, just better quality imo.

Yes, I had a US BJCM , don't need a stroller anymore. It had red brakes. I have read a few quality probs with the Agile, while the BJCM seems better made. I sold mine for about $50 less than I pd for it, after about 15 months of use. Buy the accessories from the US too - much cheaper than here.

I'm looking at an agile too, and looked on amazon, the ones B Agile from the us has front wheels that looks readly close together so I don't think it's the same as the Aust Agile

looks like we will be going for B Agile, as i am pretty short and read that BJCM is suitable for taller mums.

Ras500 - i am pretty sure b agile and agile plus = same model. Just looks a little different.

Have you looked at the new BJCMGT, it has an adjustable handle, and forever filled rubber tyres, so handles the parks, mulch etc better than the regulare BJCM/Agile. Costs more $$$, but you get a stroller that can go from shops to parks, great to excercise/walk fast with too.

Thanks for this.

Had a look at the difference between normal one and GT and couldn't see any features besides the adjustable handle that stood out for me. it is also a little more heavier.


red brakes and color selection is definitely a big plus.

all this baby shopping is driving us a little nuts to be honest! so many things to buy, so many things to look at! crazy!
