The Easywalker June - An Anticipated Introduction




Easywalker strollers first rolled onto the pushchair scene back in 1989 - 23 years ago, and in this time they have been following basic and effective guidelines in the manufacturing of their strollers:

- Quality, sustainable solutions
- ‘Less is more’
- All-terrain
- Value for money
- Sporty design

Easywalker Strollers invite you outside to take on your next adventure, be it a scenic walk around the sunflower fields or a all terrain adventure in the pouring rain. There is a stroller for every need in both the physical need and of course the cosmetic department.

Easywalker like to keep things simple, the way strollers are meant to be. Their main focus is completely on the essence of the stroller and how practical it is for the parent to use, and how comfortable it is for baby to ride along in.

With that said I would like to introduce you all to the Easywalker June... 
The June is the brand new stroller that will be hitting the high streets for a scheduled release date in August 2012. There is a lot of mystery surrounding this exciting new stroller and for a long time Easywalker have been very secretive about their latest addition. 


What do Easywalker say?

The new Easywalker June stimulates you to go outside and experience the world together with your child. A compact all-rounder which you can easily use on any terrain, both in the city and the woods or beach. 
The Easywalker june is voted most innovative baby product in the market by consumers and jury. In both the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Next to that we have also recently won the prestigious and well known Red Dot award.

I am pleased to be able to give you a sneaky peak into the stunning new June and it's exciting specification.

The June is compact, weighing in at around 9kg and it even folds up into one unit, no matter what position the seat is in! This is a impressive feature in my eyes, as some strollers can not be folded completely as one piece when in parent facing mode, so this will make so much difference to those, like me who love having baby face you, but detest the thought of taking it apart at the end of the adventure to collapse it.

 The June boats a user friendly one click collapse feature, which is what I always like to hear. Simplicity for me is the only way, and I always seem to struggle with all the controls when learning to put a new stroller up and down. A very clever feature that not many pushchairs can scream and shout about...Is that the June can be conveniently carried in a Mini Cooper's boot, which gives you an idea of just how compactly it folds down. 

The new June comes equipped with Four suspension and shock absorbing all terrain air wheels, which aim to provide the smoothest ride over fields, beaches and even snow. They really make this stroller look complete, and the thought of being able to venture off road with these wheels and the strong frame construction, makes the June experience even more exciting.

A subject very close to my heart is the seat unit position. I am pleased to confirm that the June has both a parent facing option and of course forward facing. I do enjoy having the option to have Leo facing me and to this day, if we are travelling out on our own I love the luxury of being able to see him, and talk to him.

The seat unit is large and well padded, it is equipped with a 5 point harness and chest pads. There is a great colour pallet available, with the option to mix and max the colour's to your required taste. The main seat unit is always in Black but there is an exciting variation available on the sun canopy in either Blue, Natural or Black.

You can even customise the colour of the seat liner and really make the June stand out from the other strollers out on the high street. 

The exciting new June has the potential to be used as a complete travel system. Car seat adapters can be inserted into the framework allowing you to combine a Maxi-Cosi PebbleMaxi-Cosi CabrioFix a Cybex Aton or one of BeSafe’s infant car seats. This is always a welcome option with a newborn baby and makes transporting your little one from the car into the house a breeze, while allowing baby to continue sleeping with no disturbance.

A very welcome addition is the carry cot, if you are like me a pram is essential in those early days. The carry cot can be purchased at an extra cost but from what I have seen, looks to be a very decent size that will allow baby plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the ride.

There is a range of accessories already in existance for the June from footmuffs, bumper bars, mosquito nets to changing bags.

I am so excited by this beautiful new stroller that seems to tick every box. It looks as good as it sounds and I am very much looking forward to taking the new June for a test drive at the end of August. 

I am going to be putting the June to the test with Leo and sharing all of our findings with you. We will be taking the June on our many adventures, to the beach and on many a walk. 

I will leave you with a great video insight into the June and a very catchy song that is sure to get you into the June spirit!



Keep your eyes peeled for our full review of the June in the on-coming months, embellished with exciting video footage and plenty of photos with the very cheeky Leo taking you along for the ride.

  6. I have a Mini and have experienced so much hassle in finding a pushchair to accomadate all of our needs...as well as then fitting in the boot of my car!

    I will be investing in the June!
    I look forward to reading your review!

  7. Do you know if this stroller is small enough to take as a carry-on on airplanes? (Or up to the gate..)

    ReplyDelete

    1. I would have thought you could! I took my Mothercare Spin right up to the gate and that would have been bigger than this.

      It all folds down into one so I would have thought it would be very practical.

  13. I don't really want to comment as anonymous but I don't have any of the profiles you can use so... my name is Zuzana and I live in Belgium.
    I have bought June without trying it, based on the fantastic add...if you are considering to buy it like that, please don't! Go and try it out first...and not in the showroom with perfect flat surface but OUTSIDE. You will probably notice that the pushchair is pretty useless (I live in a town with a lot of cobblestone paths). You will not be able to tilt the pushchair when going e.g. up / down the edge of a sidewalk because the suspension is useless. The pushchair is in trouble on every uneven surface so don't even think about walking on the beach or in the woods. You will see that fitting it into your Mini (how many of you actually have a Mini??) will appear like an unnecessary detail next to all the basic functionalities this pushchair lacks. There are a lot of other annoying details - folding mechanism (not that easy as it appears), the break (don't wear open shoes, you will hurt your feet when accidentally bumping against the part of the break that's sticking out).
    To make the long story short - I have returned my June and got my money back. I have contacted EasyWalker and got some interesting answers. If you want to know more or if you have same kind of experience, please contact me by replying on this message.

    1. Hi Zuzana,
      I have to say that this has not been my experience of the June at all. I have found it handles really well and the suspension has been fantastic.
      I can see where you are coming from in getting up the edge of a steep curb but there is a trick. Putting your foot on the bar at the back will give you the lift you need to get up no problem.
      I am glad your case was resolved :-)

      Delete
    2. Yes, I know the trick, that's one of their "solutions". I have emailed with easywalker, looking for explanations and this was one of the explanations: ...the pushchair is designed that way...to me it sounds like they are trying to solve a design flaw the cheapest way possible, the same as their "transport lock" that nobody knows about but if you ask they will attach it for free. Transport lock is the thing that keeps the pushchair in the folded position and that probably every other pushchair has. The next batch of June's will have this lock already attached...so they probably forgot that too in their original design.
      And let me get back to that "trick" again, it more or less works if you want to get up (doesn't feel right though, the heavier the child the more I felt like I was going to crack the handle) but try the same trick when going down the curb without getting your child a whiplash. To me it looks like we are talking about different pushchairs.

    3. I have taken the June for walks in our local park over the terrain and off roading. I have found the whole pushchair to be really light and above all else sturdy, even with my 16 month old in it. I find it no problem having to put my foot on the bar in order to go up the curb, and I can't say I have experienced the thought that it may snap.
      I am glad Easywalker accomadated you in your problems with the June :-)
