With the Zelia Max 5-in-1 Modular Travel System, you get the Zelia Max Stroller, the Mico 30 Infant Car Seat, and the Infant Car Seat Base.

Together, these products create the perfect travel system that allows you to enjoy five fabulous modes of use to maximize baby’s comfort.

Yeah, you read that right, FIVE different modes to ensure all of baby’s needs are covered while you’re on the move.

This unique system is designed to grow with your little one. The Zelia Max Stroller offers safety and comfort for children up to 50 lbs. Every element was designed for durability, so you’re ready to tackle any terrain for years to come.

One of the stand-out features of the Zelia Max is that the stroller seat can be used as a fully reclinable carriage, allowing newborns to lie completely flat. This is a fantastic feature as many other products require you to buy (plus cart around) a separate bassinet or don’t have the option at all. When you’re little one outgrows the carriage, it easily transforms to a stroller seat for your toddler. 

In both carriage and stroller mode, the seat can be parent-facing for some baby bonding time or flipped around to face the world, so baby can take in all the exciting new sights around them.

Of course, when the Zelia Max Stroller is used with the Mico Max Car Seat, it becomes an instant travel system. Simply use the included adapters to click the car seat directly on the frame of the Zelia Max Stroller and go! This is particularly useful when your snuggle bug is sleeping peacefully — the last thing you want to do is interrupt their slumber moving them from the car seat to their stroller (or vice versa).

Anytime is naptime with the Zelia Travel System.

Mico 30 

The Mico 30 Infant Car Seat is high-quality and lightweight, which makes it the perfect travel companion. This rear-facing car seat can hold babies from 4 to 30 pounds. Little babies are supported by the Cozi-Dozi insert, which can be removed to give your child more room as they grow.

Just because you are on the go doesn’t mean you don’t want top-notch safety features. The Mico Max 30 boasts Side Impact Protection, plus the stay-in-car base features rebound protection.

The sleek car seat base is adjustable and features a one-click LATCH system for an easy install and secure fit in every vehicle.

When you are on vacation or catching a cab, the Mico Max 30 can be installed without its base in a snap. Plus, this infant car seat is certified for aircraft use, so you have peace of mind knowing baby will be snug and safe both in the car and in the air.

Trusty Travel Companion 

As your trusty travel companion, the Zelia Max Travel System is built to set you up for success in every situation.

Sometimes it’s the little things that save you the most not fighting with a stroller to make it collapse!

Thankfully, opening and closing the Zelia Max Stoller is a painless affair. Just a few clicks and toss the lightweight stroller in your trunk. The stroller also has a free-standing fold, so you can stow it away nicely when not in use.

While bumper bars are great for added safety when using your stroller, they can sometimes make it more difficult to get your child in and out of the seat. To solve this problem the Zelia Max Stroller’s bar swings to the side to make loading and unloading struggle-free.

The Zelia Max also has upgraded rubber wheels to help it maneuver nicely on rough terrain, and the easy-access roomy storage basket is a dream for parents on the go, with serious space for wipes, toys, and snacks.

Customizable Comfort

As mentioned, the Zelia Max and Mico Max combo has five different modes to make sure baby’s comfy and always ready to go as they grow, but that’s just where the customizable comfort starts.

Adjust the stroller’s handle to your preference, so parents of different heights can enjoy a comfortable grip when out and about with baby.

When baby’s strolling in adventure-facing mode, the mesh peek-a-boo window lets you stay connected while adding ventilation for increased airflow on hot days.

On those extra sunny days, you can unzip the extendable canopy and flip out the visor for maximum UV protection — this also creates a private sleeping space for baby.

Keep baby warm and dry in any condition with the included insulated footmuff and rain cover.

Fashion Meets Function

Go ahead, judge the Zelia Max Travel System by its cover.

Its fabrics come in a sophisticated range of colours to stand out from the crowd on every adventure, while baby enjoys cloud-like comfort.

The soft-textured material is naturally fire retardant without additional chemicals added, so you don’t have to compromise safety for style.

The self-wicking fabrics deodorize and draw liquids away from the skin to help keep baby dry.

Don’t worry it's super easy to keep this beautiful fabric clean, even after baby’s messiest excursions. You can remove the fabric without re-threading the harness and just pop it in the washer and dryer.

Final Thoughts

From a spontaneous fall stroll to a tropical family getaway, taking your little one out on their first adventures means making memories that will last a lifetime.

Thankfully the Zelia Max 5-in-1 Modular Travel System can help make these experiences a lot less stressful.

With five modes of use, a system that grows with baby, completely customizable comfort to match your lifestyle (and your style) AND a price point that won’t break the bank, this travel system is a great option for parents on to go.

The Zelia Max Stroller is compatible with all Maxi-Cosi car seats using adaptors. The Mico Car Seat is compatible with countless popular brand-name strollers using adapters – here’s the full list of the seat’s stroller compatibility.
