Cybex Eezy S Twist Review – Stroller Features
The name of this stroller is of course related to its awesome, innovative feature – revolving seat. You can rotate the seat 360 degrees, without removing it from the frame. Moreover this stroller is very light and nimble.
It’s also very flexible and gives parents possibility of attaching infant car seat or carrycot, which makes it all-in-one stroller, perfect for newborns and toddlers. This multi-functional stroller works best for everyday use in the city and travel with baby (infant or toddler).
This lightweight stroller has revolving seat – innovative feature that no other stroller has. The seat can be facing parent or the World, but you don’t have to remove it from the frame and lift it to reverse it. You can easily change the direction of the seat with one hand! The seat rotates a full 360 degrees (scroll down to see the video).
This awesome feature is useful especially for parents who cannot lift heavy things. It’s perfect solution for moms who had C-section and parents who have back pain. No more struggles with lifting the seat. Now you can easily reverse it by twisting. You just need to pull a lever on the bottom of the seat and then just rotate the seat. It can be done when the canopy is open as well.
Usually lightweight strollers don’t offer reversible seat (which, to be honest, sucks) and even if they do, you need to bend, remove it, lift it, turn it and click it again. Sometimes it’s really annoying. Here you can forget about that issue. Cybex Eezy S Twist really makes parents life more easy.
This seat is also nicely padded and has 5-point harness. I like the fabric pads on shoulder straps, I only wish there was a cover for the crotch strap as well.
There is also multi-position recline which provides comfortable place for napping. The lowest position is almost flat (only few degrees reclined) which makes the seat suitable for younger babies.
To recline the seat you need to use a strap with a buckle on the back of it. You can lower the seat using one hand, but to raise is you will need to use two hands. It’s not a big deal, but something to keep in mind.
There is also a step where older and taller kids can rest their feet on. However, it’s not adjustable and can be used only when the seat is facing parent.
The seat can accommodate a passenger up to 55 lbs. Really big capacity for such a compact and light stroller!
Seating options for newborns
Although the seat goes really far down, it’s not proper for newborns because it doesn’t give proper support for newborns delicate spine, neck and head. If you want to use this stroller from birth, you will need some additional attachments.
Cybex Eezy S Twist offers parents option of attaching a Cocoon S to the frame. It’s not classic bassinet, it’s only a small cocoon which gives newborns better support for their back and head. I really like that it’s equipped with summer cover and winter cover, so it will keep your child cozy and warm and prevent him from overheating.
You can check the price and colors for Cybex Cocoon S for example on PishPosh Baby (CLICK).
I recommend using the harness when your infant is in the cocoon to keep him secured in place.
Infant car seat compatibility – Cybex Eezy S Twist Travel System
This stroller can be easily turned into a travel system with Cybex and GB infant car seats. Not every lightweight stroller features infant car seat compatibility, so Cybex gets a BIG PLUS.
It’s also great that the car seat attaches to the frame, not to the seat so the stroller doesn’t get much bulkier or heavier. If you want to use Twist stroller as travel system you just need to detach the regular seat and attach the car seat adapters to the frame.
On the video below you can see how to install the infant car seat.
There is 2-panel canopy with sun visor. It’s made of material with UV 50+ to protect the child from harmful sun rays. This sun hood is fairly roomy, but I’d wish it could go lower and had a peek-a-boo window. This is the biggest disadvantage of this stroller that I’ve found.
Wheels & Suspension
When you’re traveling or running errands in the city centre you need a stroller that is easy to steer and maneuvers smoothly through crowds and tight places. And Cybex Eezy S Twist is exactly like that – it’s very agile and easy to operate thanks to front pivoting wheels. Moreover it has small footprint (only 17.7 inches wide) so it easily fits through narrow shopping aisles and tight corners.
The wheels are rather small so they work best on flat surfaces and for indoors use (in the mall or airport). However, this stroller is equipped with all-wheel suspension and thanks to that it can handle not only cracked sidewalks and pavement, but also hard-packed gravel trails and cobblestone. The ride won’t be ultra-smooth, but the stroller won’t shake that much.
The suspension built in wheels absorb shocks on uneven terrain and provides comfortable ride. Your baby will be able to rest undisturbed while you’re running your errands in the city, shopping at the mall or strolling over cobbled streets during holidays.
There is a single action brake (this type gets more popular in modern lightweight strollers). The pedal is placed in the middle of rear axle. It has convenient size and shape and it’s easy to press and lift in sneakers and sandals.
It’s not big, but offers decent storage space and I think you won’t have any problems with fitting your diaper bag and few other items in it. Great thing about this bin is that it offers easy access from each side.
Cybex Eezy S Twist features one-hand easy folding and you can do it no matter if the seat is facing you or out.
Folded Twist stroller takes little space so it fits even in a small car trunk. It’s also perfect choice for parents who don’t have much free space at their home.
And there’s one more awesome thing that will please traveling parents: Cybex Eezy S Twist fits in overhead compartment on most of airplanes! Its folded dimensions are about: 22″ x 17.7″ x 10.2″ so it meets carry-on regulations for most of airlines (but you’ll probably need to detach the seat).
This stroller is equipped with a lock that prevents it from opening during transport or storage. It features self-stand and has convenient handle so you can easily carry it up and down the stairs or just carry it around when it’s not in use. As you can see Twist stroller is designed for urban parents and parents who often travel with their kid.
|Psst! If you are looking for a compact stroller for holidays with your baby, here is my ranking with other awesome lightweight strollers.|
This stroller is very lightweight, which is awesome especially when we consider how well-equipped, agile and maneuverable it is. It weighs about 17 lbs! It’s very compact and portable.
Pros & Cons

Cybex Eezy S Twist release date was scheduled for April 2018 and it is already for sale.

Cybex Eezy S Twist is not a cheap stroller, but it’s also not the most expensive one. It has similar price to UPPAbaby MINU and Baby Jogger City Tour LUX. Nevertheless I think the price is reasonable as for such a versatile and lightweight stroller, considering it can be used for newborns and serve as an everyday stroller and travel stroller.

Cybex Eezy S Twist Review – Conclusion
Keep in mind
It’s not suitable for off-road trips. Cybex Eezy S Twist works best as city stroller and travel stroller. Also, the canopy doesn’t feature peek-a-boo window so when the baby is facing surroundings and you want to check on him, you need to stop and take a look from the side or from the front.
