Phil & Teds Sport V5 Pushchair Review

Summary

The Phil & Teds Sport v5 Pushchair is the newest model of the previously loved Sport and Navigator. It’s ideal for parents wanting an all-terrain stroller with the functionality of being able to hold one or two children. It’s light to manoeuvre, with innovative kerb pop technology and a compact, fast fold.

The Phil & Teds Sport V5 Pushchair has taken over from its predecessor, the Phil & Teds Navigator V2. To see our full review, click here.

Features

The forward facing seat is suitable for a child from birth to 20kg, which is approximately 4-5 years old. The fabrics of the seat unit are very hard wearing (600D sporty fabrics) yet extremely comfortable. There are also 4 possible seat recline positions, from lie flat to upright. The Sport v5 is available in Black, Cherry, Midnight, Apple and Graffiti.

The seat unit has a 5-point safety harness with 3 possible height positions, ensuring safety and comfort for your child inside. Each clip is put in individually which is great for wriggling children, and a one-click release allows children to explore in a one handed movement.

A key feature of the Sport v5 is the auto-stop brake which is located within the handlebar. When pushing the stroller, just release the catch and the stroller will stop. If you know that a long walk is ahead, the ‘brake off clip’ can be clipped onto the handle allowing you to walk freely. A tether strap is also attached to the soft foam handle for extra safety, and will turn the brake on if pulled at force. The handle bar height can also be fully adjusted to suit any height and the brake lever will follow.

Ride

All three wheels of the Sport v5 have 12” air-filled tyres, giving all terrain manoeuvrability. The weight of the pushchair is also very well distributed which gives it a great ‘kerb pop’. The Phil & Teds Sport V5 Pushchair tackles almost every terrain with great ease. It’s also very simple to lock the front wheel, making it easier to push on rougher and more uneven terrain. There is also a plastic footrest above the front wheel for easy-cleaning.

Sun Canopy

The sun canopy has two panels and an extra pull out sun visor, its ‘follow the sun’ feature also means that the canopy can be adjusted to block out the sun from all angles, including when in use with the Double Kit. There are also two side pockets, on both sides of the hood, where smaller items can be stored close to hand.

Fold

It is a simple one-hand action which will see this buggy fold to the floor. Simply push either of the red buttons located underneath the front of the child’s seat, then slide and push the button located behind it simultaneously.

The chassis will then fold up, with the auto-lock mechanism stopping it from unfolding. The total weight of the pushchair is 12.5kg, and can hold a child from birth to 20kg (44lbs). It has a total width of 59cm so is very convenient to push around busy shops and streets.

Storage

The under-seat storage basket can hold up to 5kg in weight, which is great for when out and about. There are also pockets located on either side of the hood canopy for smaller items that you need to keep close to hand.

Suitability

The Sport v5 has many possible riding options, and allows you to create a stroller fit for one or two children, using accessories. It’s suitable for use with 1 newborn, 2 newborns, 1 toddler, 1 baby and 1 toddler or 2 toddlers; by using an array of accessories including car seats, carrycots and double kits.

 

Practicality

Although the seat unit itself is suitable to use from birth, there is the option of attaching a car seat. By removing the seat unit and adding car seat adaptors, you can click a car seat on and off the chassis with ease. The Phil & Teds Alpha Car Seat attaches directly onto the Car Seat Adaptors and is ready to go.

The feature of a Double Kit is one that Phil & Teds love, and the Phil & Teds Sport V5 Pushchair is no different to its predecessors. It can either convert the stroller into an inline double, allow your baby lay parent facing or can allow for one child to be in the full recline position whist another child sits higher above them.

Accessories

There is a large variety of accessories available for the Phil & Teds Sport V5 Pushchair. A Phil & Teds Snug Carrycot can be attached to provide a cosy lie-flat environment, whilst also facing you. The Phil & Teds Cocoon also acts much like carrycot, but is a softer and lighter alternative. It sits inside the lie-flat recline of the seat unit, and can also be used in conjunction with the double kit.

Handy accessories also include the Phil & Teds Single Storm Cover and the Single Sun Cover providing protection in all weathers. If using the pushchair with a double kit, then the Phil & Teds Double Storm Cover and the Double Sun Cover will keep both of your children protected from all weathers.
