In the world of baby gear, one name always shines bright: Cybex 

With their stellar reputation for innovation and quality, Cybex has us all on the edge of our seats (or strollers, in this case) whenever they release a new product.  

In this article, we're diving into the mini-marvel that is the Balios S Lux 2 Stroller — a four-wheeled wonder that’s definitely worth exploring! 

So, if you're in the market for a stroller that effortlessly blends style, durability, and safety, then buckle up — or rather, strap in your little one — because this is one ride you'll seriously want to consider! 

Stylish Substance 


  • Suitable from birth (with the use of an infant car seat or Cot S Lux 2) to approx. 4 years or 55 lbs. 
  • Unfolded Dimensions: 35.6” L x 23.6” W x 42.5” H 
  • Folded Dimensions: 30.3” L x 23.8” W x 17.3” H 
  • Stroller Weight 25.8 lbs. 

The Balios is where style meets substance!  

This luxurious stroller boasts a modern look that's sure to turn heads, and it comes in a range of stunning colours to suit your taste. But it's not just about aesthetics — this stroller means business. 

Crafted with durability in mind, Cybex upgraded this version of the Balios to include a welded crossbar with solid metal locking components on the chassis, ensuring it can handle the rigours of day-to-day use with ease.  

With a combination of front-wheel suspension and frame-based rear suspension, your baby will experience the ultimate smooth ride, even on the bumpiest streets. 

Furthermore, large rear wheels and a broad base provide excellent stability and make maneuvering the Balios a joy. 

Safety Features  

When it comes to our little explorers, safety takes the spotlight, and the Balios truly shines in this department.  

First, the one-pull, 3-point harness really helps out busy parents. Fastening your child securely takes just a single hand movement for a form-fitting hug that keeps them snug as a bug! 

Covering your precious cargo is a UPF 50+ canopy that plays sun protection superhero. It's not just about shielding your child from harmful UV rays though. The canopy unzips for even greater coverage, making sure your baby stays shaded, cool, and even gives them some privacy on those sunny strolls.  

In front of them is a bumper bar that adds an extra layer of safety. It's like a mini buffer against bumps and unexpected jolts!  

Rounding out the safety features is a trusty footbrake, ensuring the stroller stays firmly in place so your little one doesn’t roll away. 

Dressed to Impress 

Let's take a closer look at the impressive array of features the Balios S Lux 2 brings to the table:  

  1. Use From Birth: This stroller is designed for long-term use and can be used from birth with an infant car seat like the Aton G or Cybex’s Balios-compatible pram, the Cot S Lux 2. 

  2. Easy Fold: One-handed folding means you can effortlessly collapse the stroller into a self-standing position, making storage and transport a cinch. 

  3. Reversible Seating: Attach your child’s seat in either parent-facing or world-facing position depending on their (and your) mood! 

  4. Near-Flat Recline: With separate back and leg adjustments, a near-flat ergonomic recline ensures a cozy and adaptable place to rest their bottom. Plus, Cybex includes an adjustable footrest for an extra touch of comfort! 

  5. Handlebar: The handlebar is both functional and comfortable, with a telescoping feature that allows it to adjust between 39 and 43 inches in height. It's even wrapped in luxurious leather for a touch of style and added grip!

  6. Travel System: The Balios can be transformed into a travel system by seamlessly attaching any Cybex infant car seat, thanks to the included adapters. It's also compatible with other car seats like the Maxi Cosi Mico 30 and the Nuna PIPA Lite, offering you versatility and convenience.

  7. Mesh Venting: The mesh window on the canopy ensures optimal breathability and healthy air circulation on those hot summer days, keeping your little one cool and comfortable.
  8. Underseat Basket: With a generous 22 lbs. capacity, the underseat basket is your trusty companion for weekly shopping, day trips, and picnics, ensuring you have all your essentials within reach!

  9. Cup Holder: Stay refreshed on the go with the convenient cup holder. 

  10. Rain Cover: Don't let unexpected showers dampen your plans. The included rain cover keeps your child dry during inclement weather.

  11. Accessories: Cybex allows you to customize your Balios with a range of add-ons, including their Cup Holder, Snack Tray, and Kid Board, to suit your family's unique needs and style.
