Features

The Silver Cross Wave Pushchair & Carrycot is both a single and double inline pushchair, in one. It has 16 different possible seating combinations, using a mixture of carrycots, car seats and seat units. This makes the pushchair perfect for parents with one child, twins and siblings because of this wide variety of combinations – made to suit any family.

Straight out of the box – inline tandem mode

The unique ‘one plus one’ feature is what allows this pushchair to be used for two children, straight away. This means that as soon as you’ve set up the Wave, you can use it either as a buggy for one or two children. You can create four configurations straight out of the box, including: carrycot, forward facing seat, rear facing seat and carrycot and seat. Other pushchairs don’t often give you this versatility without the use of additional adaptors, so we love how Silver Cross have included this as standard.

Carrycot

The carrycot included in the box is suitable for use from birth to 9kg and can be used for overnight sleeping. A ventilated and waterproof base also add to the great list of features that the carrycot has, and makes it ideal for use off of the pushchair when you want to let your little one carry on snoozing.

The fabrics and linings are all really soft and plush, with the bamboo fabric lining also having antibacterial properties. Included with the carrycot is also an apron, hood and bumper bar, which even matches the frame handle. Hidden inside the hood is a ventilated panel and extra pop-out visor with UPF50+ protection, to ensure your baby stays fully protected and comfortable inside.

Seat

When in single mode, the seat is suitable for use from 6 months up to a huge 25kg or up to 15kg when in tandem mode. The seat unit is fully adjustable with three different recline positions and can be either forward or parent facing. This is perfect for all children, whether they like to have a nap or look out and explore on their walks.

The seat also has a padded 5-point harness, removable bumper bar that matches the handle of your frame and height adjustable calf support. All of these features combine to give your little one the comfiest of rides. We love Silver Cross’ attention to detail too, from the silent hood to leatherette finishings.

Ride

With 4-way independent suspension, the Silver Cross Wave Pushchair & Carrycot is great at manoeuvring its way over urban and rougher terrains. The strong magnesium frame also gives the pushchair a robust and sturdy feel. All tyres are also puncture proof, so you’ll never have a walk cut short because of a puncture. The front swivel wheels are also lockable, letting you glide over different terrains easily.

Fold

To fold the Silver Cross Wave Pushchair & Carrycot, you need to simply pull up on the clips on each side of the frame and click the little button above one. Down the pushchair folds, with or without the seat attached. Once folded, an auto-lock clicks into place and ensures the pushchair stays in the smallest folded position.

Storage

The Wave has a very spacious under seat shopping basket, that’s easy to access from all sides. This basket has a hard shell and a waterproof and ‘impact resistant’ base, which will keep it sturdy and always in shape. Plus, there are draw string pockets at the front and back to keep your valuables safe.

Travel System

By using car seat adaptors, you can also transform the Wave into a travel system for either one or two car seats. One set of car seat adaptors is included with the pushchair, saving the expense of buying these as an additional accessory. The adaptors let you click your Silver Cross Simplicity Car Seat on and off the buggy, in one easy step. We love that this pushchair is also able to take two car seats because it really adds to its versatility and practicality, especially for parents with two newborns.

Accessories

To make certain configurations you will need to add different accessories, such as: a Carrycot, Tandem Seat or Simplicity Car Seat. Some, but not all, of these also will need extra adaptors. These include Carrycot Adaptors and Car Seat Tandem Adaptors. You will only need these if you’re planning on using the pushchair with two carrycots, two car seats or with the carrycot in the top position or car seat in the lowest position.
