Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System Review
This is a 3-in-1 stroller that really grows with the baby. And it will definitely serve you few years – from birth till toddlerhood.
What’s included in the set?
Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System comes with SafeMax Infant Car Seat, SafeZone Base, toddler seat that fully reclines and converts to a bassinet, child tray and parent cup holder.
Add-ons and seating options
Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System offers six different seating modes. We can push it with an infant car seat or toddler seat or convert the toddler seat to bassinet, each facing parent or World. Each part of this stroller looks very elegant and stylish.
Let’s start with the infant car seat. SafeMax Infant Car Seat is suitable for babies from 4 to 35 lbs. When we install it in the car in the SafeZone Base it is rear-facing.
The base absorbs and dissipate energy during a crash through anti-rebound bar. This anti-rebound bar is awesome safety feature, because it also prevents forward motion in the event of a collions. Huge advantage! This car seat has passed many safety tests above norms and standards!
It’s easy to install the car seat into the base in the car. And just by one click we can take the car seat out of the base to the stroller frame.
If we want to stroll with the infant car seat we just simply snap it in the frame, front or rear facing. And we don’t need any adapter which is really great. It’s very useful because we can quickly switch between car and stroller without waking our baby up. It’s great if we have to run some quick errands in the city or go to the store.
SafeMax Infant Car Seat has full canopy and there is an optional cushion for head and back support. It increases infant’s comfort and provides more safety ride. This newborn insert can be removed as the baby gets older. The car seat is really nicely padded with soft fabric really great for delicate newborn skin. The harness straps can be adjusted by rethreading as the baby grows.
This infant car seat is also very lightweight (about 8 lbs) so we can easily carry it holding an ergonomic handle. Even with a baby it’s super easy to lift.

For longer walks we can turn this stroller into carriage mode. You’re probably wondering how it’s done, because there is no additional piece of gear like a bassinet in the set. Well, the toddler seat can be easily converted to a bassinet within few second.
If you have the seat removed from the frame, you just need to flip it over and there is a buckle on the bottom which you have to unbuckle. Then pull out the strap that is hanging on the back of the seat to recline to fully. Then just click the seat into the frame and recline the seat all the way down and voila, you have a stroller with basinet. 🙂 You can also do this while the seat is attached.
In the bassinet mode canopy covers most of the baby. I think bassinet is the best way to stroll with newborns and infants who don’t have head and neck control yet.I love that the seat features fully recline and can be converted to bassinet mode. It’s 2-in-1 which means we can save space in house, because there is less baby gear to storage.
This bassinet can be used only when it’s attached to the stroller. If we take it off it will collapse so we can’t use it for sleeping baby in the house, unless it’s snapped in the frame.
When the baby can sit straight and has neck and head control we can start using the toddler seat. The seat is very easy to lift and recline. In the toddler mode there are two different ways to recline the seat: lower or lift the whole seat or just recline the back of the seat by using a strap. In this mode the seat can also go all the way down so your toddler can comfortably nap during strolling. Fully recline is also very useful for changing a diaper.
This seat is equipped with very convenient belly bar which your child can hold on to or you can use it as a handle. There is also removable child tray that click into the bumper bar. We can put there some snack and a sippy cup for our little one. The belly bar and child tray can be easily removed just by clicking two buttons. Bumper bar doesn’t swing away but removing it is a piece of cake.
It’s a big advantage that a child tray is included, because it is very rare that such a convenience item comes with the stroller.
What I also like that the foot rest has rubberised fabric which is super easy to clean. Sometimes it happens that a child sits on a stroller with wet shoes or shoes covered with mud, but we don’t have to worry that the material will be destoyed. We can easily clean it with wet cloth.
There is adjustable 5-point harness to secure the baby during riding. The seat can be front or rear facing. Our baby can ride facing the World and watch the surrounding and we don’t have to worry about not seeing the baby, because there is nice-sized peek-a-boo window in the canopy.
Toddler seat is suitable up to 50 lbs, it fits 2-2.5-year-old-baby most comfortably. From the bottom of the seat to the canopy there is 23”, the seat is 12” wide.
Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System features large, 3-panel canopy that provides full coverage from sun rays. Your little one can lie or sit comfortably and enjoy summer strolls.
There is also nice-sized mesh peek-a-boo window which gives extra air-flow. It’s easy to see through the fabric. There is no Velcro or magnetic closure, the fabric just lies and covers the peek-a-boo window. It’s actually great because it’s silent and we can spy on our little one without waking him/her up!
This stroller has two bigger rear wheels and two smaller front ones with Cruiser Tires. Thanks to them you can push the stroller effortlessly while your baby is having a smooth ride. And you don’t have to worry about getting flat! Front wheels are swivel, but we can’t locked them, that’s why this stroller is not all-terrain.
Remember that it is not a jogging stroller and the wheels are not all-terrain. However Evenflo Pivot glides smoothly over most of the surfaces: uneven city sidewalks, streets, gravel park paths. This is awesome urban stroller
This stroller has double action brakes, places next to the rear wheels. We have to lock each wheel independently. It’s not too much of a hustle, however I’d wish it had a single action brake. However, the brakes are easy to press and lift, even while wearing high heels or sandals.
Evenflo Pivot has ergonomic handlebar with fixed height at 40” from the ground. I’m rather short person and pushing this stroller is very convenient for me.
The stroller has excellent shape and constuction. Thanks to it my hubby who is over 6 feet tall also didn’t have any problems with pushing the stroller and what’s the most important he wasn’t kicking back of the stroller (which is a common issue when the handlebar is not adjustable).
Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System offers plenty of storage space thanks to large basket under the seat. It can accommodate our essentials and all of the necessary baby gear. I could easily fit there my bag some toys and snacks, diaper bag and few shipping bags! This stroller is great for going to the mall and day trips. The basket is easily accessible from the back and front.
Folding and size
Evenflo Pivot Modular Stroller weighs only 20 lbs which is really nice for a full-sized stroller.
We can quickly and easily fold it, it takes about 5 seconds. The are two levers on both sides of the handlebar, we need to lift them up and stroller folds down. And there’s no need to bend over! Great for parents with back problems.
After folding we can lock the stroller by pressing a button and then the stroller will stand on its own and won’t change its position. It has very slim profile which make it easy to storage in a closet and transport even in a small car trunk.
Only thing that can be irritating is that to unfold the stroller we have to use both hands. But it’s pretty common in most of the stroller so it’s not such a big disadvantage. 🙂
I’m pretty sure this was the easiest setup of all strollers I have tested. I took me only few minutes to attach the wheels, handlebar and the seat and I was ready for a walk with my baby. I was like “wow, that was pretty easy”. Everything was very intuitive and simple.
Removable child tray which can be snapped in the belly bar. There’s also a parent cup holder included in the set which click onto the side of the frame. Both accessories are easy to install and remove.
When I recently checked there was huge discount for Pivot Travel System and its price was under $200!
Don’t wait any longer and get this stroller for the best price.
