Cybex Gazelle S Stroller Review

Jump to Section

Cybex has taken the features from your top stroller picks and has combined them all into one amazing full-featured luxury stroller with the Gazelle S:
  • An included removable basket like the Bugaboo Donkey5
  • The ability to transform into a double tandem stroller with a BIG basket like the UPPAbaby Vista V2
  • And, a seat that can move up and down on the frame for convenience like the Stokke Xplory
...and the laundry list of features goes on!

You ready? Let’s dig in on the Cybex Gazelle S 3-in-1 stroller system.

Removable Shopping Basket

So, what sets this stroller apart?

Visually, the first thing you’ll notice is the removable shopping basket. The Gazelle S offers an interesting frame and basket combo which is giving off major Bugaboo Donkey 5 vibes. The included removable shopping basket can hold 25 lbs and can be positioned up top for easy access for the parent. It has a zipper compartment on the inside which is ideal for your phone, sunnies, or some cash or your credit card. 

FYI, this storage is on top of the 30 lbs under basket storage capacity allowing you to transport up to 55 lbs of cargo at any time. Hell-o grocery haul.

Innovative Adapters

Is it possible to use all of the seat and basket configurations with ease? 

The answer is an overwhelming YES! The included upper adapters can move into 3 various positions and are marked on the stroller frame with an easy-to-read dot system.

The adapters easily slide UP and DOWN the stroller frame allowing you to accommodate lots of different combinations or a second rider [we will get to the second seat shortly.] We love this innovative adapter system for many reasons starting with the fact that there is no chance of losing them since they are a permanent fixture on the stroller frame. They also offer flexibility as you get to choose where exactly you want the seat to be on the frame. Have you ever been to a busy café with no highchairs available? It’s the worst. The Gazelle S allows you to move the seat up or down to suit your needs allowing for you to bring the seat to table height if necessary.

Coolest part? The lower adapter mechanism can be flipped out to accommodate a second seat when the time comes. 

The Stroller Seat

  • 3 Recline positions
  • Reversible seat
  • Swivel belly bar
  • No re-thread harnesses
The Cybex Gazelle S allows for 3 different recline positions including a near flat recline. The lie-flat recline is ideal for smaller babies – which means you can use this seat from birth. It also has a reversible seat which means your little one can face you or the world. 

The Gazelle S has an extendable canopy that zips out for an added layer of protection and reveals a mesh peekaboo window for visibility on a napping baby and extra ventilation. These days the no re-thread harness and adjustable footwell are considered “standard features” for parents shopping for a premium stroller and the Gazelle S does not disappoint. 

This Gazelle S is a single-to-double stroller and the first double stroller option from Cybex. The second seat is sold separately and does not require additional adapters – both seats can hold an equal weight of 50lbs!

The Frame + Fold

If you are going to be pushing around this stroller with two full baskets and possibly two children, you'll need to ensure the stroller can keep up and offer a smooth ride. The Gazelle S offers large wheels and all-wheel suspension including added suspension in the stroller frame itself. 

The fold is easy to do once you’ve gotten the hang of it – here is a step-by-step guide.

  1.  Pull up on the lever located on the back of the stroller seat to fold it into the frame.
  2.  Press both white buttons found on the handlebar.
  3.  Grab the lever on the side of the handlebar while also sliding the frame forward in one motion.
The Gazelle S free stands for easy storage and has a carry handle for easy lifting into your vehicle.

  • Leatherette details
  • Included cup holder
  • Included rain cover

We spoke about using the stroller seat from birth but it’s important to note that the Cybex Gazelle S does offer car seat compatibility with included car seat adapters. They can be used to accommodate the following infant car seats: Maxi-Cosi® Mico 30 and Nuna PIPA™ and, let's not forget the Cybex Aton 2.

New Gazelle S 2023

This year, Cybex released their updated Gazelle S 2023 Stroller. While the new version shares many of the same features we loved in the last model, it also has a few updated ones as well.

To start with the Gazelle S 2023 is available in five new fashions and two frame colours (the previous model has four fashions and one frame colour). This means there is a perfect shade to suit any sense of style!

Sky Blue Seat/Taupe Frame
Seashell Beige Seat/ Taupe Frame
Moon Black Seat/ Silver Frame
Lava Grey Seat/ Silver Frame
Ocean Blue Frame/ Silver Frame

Leatherette Handle:
Complementing the new fashions is a classy leatherette handle on the stroller’s basket. Though it is a small thing, it adds a touch of class to the stroller’s already sleek design.

One-Pull Harness:
Cybex’s new user-friendly harness system makes securing your child in the stroller seat quick and easy. All it takes is just one simple pull — no more wrangling with your fussy baby.
