Many strollers are stylish, but only Cybex strollers might be considered runway-worthy.
In 2019, the German manufacturer brought more of its trademark fashion to the regular version of its best-selling Priam stroller. The Cybex Priam3 version features eye-catching new colors (think hot pink) against four choices of stylish frames, including a new Rose Gold chassis.
Functionally, the Priam3 offers similar features to the previous model, including sturdy wheels with all-wheel suspension, a one-handed fold, and easy compatibility with the innovative Cybex line of infant car seats.
The new Priam3 also includes a few changes, like new fabrics, new wheels and a redesigned bassinet.
The original Priam was discontinued after 2018. No changes have been made to the Priam3 since its debut in 2019, aside from new fashion collections, and the Priam3 is not changing for 2021.
We'll review the differences in this Cybex Priam3 vs. Cybex Priam comparison.
The previous model of the Cybex Priam features mostly neutral colors like Manhattan Gray and Cashmere Beige with a textured denim fabric. 2018 stroller frames are available in either Matte Black or Chrome, both of which have a black leatherette handlebar and bumper bar.
With the new Priam3, Cybex introduces bolder colors, new fabrics and a wider range of frame choices.
Four frame choices are available for the Priam3: Rose Gold with brown leatherette details, Matte Black with black leatherette details, and Chrome with a choice of either black or brown leatherette details.
The Priam3 also offers five new choices of seat colors: bright hues True Red and Fancy Pink and neutral choices Premium Black, Manhattan Gray and True Blue.
Compared with the denim-like fabric of the previous model, the Cybex Priam3 seat and canopy fabrics have a smoother look and feel.
Additionally, the Cybex Priam3 features more premium details than the previous model, like stitched leather and metallic accents on the frame and seat buckle.
The Priam3 also includes a storage pocket on the back of the seat, an addition not seen on the previous model. And one more bonus: The cup holder, previously sold separately, is now included with the stroller.
Trekking or terrain? Families purchasing the previous model of the Cybex Priam were faced with two choices of wheel types: a lighter trekking wheel for variable terrain or a chunkier all-terrain wheel for rough surfaces.
The Priam3 simplifies the decision by offering only one type of wheel. The "terrain" wheel is lighter than the previous all-terrain wheel, yet heartier than the previous trekking wheel—achieving the compromise most families are seeking in an everyday stroller.
The price of the Cybex Priam3 is $999.95, with the exception of the new Rose Gold frame is priced $50 higher, at $1,049.95.
The previous Cybex Priam has been discontinued since 2018.
The Cybex Priam offers four recline angles, including a lie-flat position that makes the stroller suitable for newborns and comfortable for napping children of all ages.
The Priam3 is different due to changing stroller regulations: The 2019 stroller now has three recline positions, with the most flat position offering a 150-degree angle. Because the recline is no longer flat, the Priam3 cannot be used with newborns unless an infant car seat or carrycot is added to the stroller.
With the launch of the Priam3, Cybex also introduced a new Lux bassinet.
The Lux bassinet features an extra-large ventilation panel not seen on the previous model. The mesh panel spans the back of the bassinet and canopy, helping to keep your baby cool and comfortable during your strolls.
Also adding to your baby's comfort: The interior of the bassinet is now 15 percent larger than the previous model.
While the previous Priam bassinet is available in colors that match the stroller seat, the Lux version is only available in black.
If you love the new Priam3 frame but want to use an older seat: Sorry, parts for the two models are not interchangeable.
That means the Priam3 seat cannot be used on an older-model frame, and the Priam3 frame cannot be used with an older-model seat.
Both Priam models are compatible with the Cybex Cloud Q and Aton series of car seats using the adapters included with the stroller purchase.
