    I purchased the car seat first as baby can travel in the lie flat seat on long car journeys. Easy to install with seatbelt or isofix. You have to purchase the isofix separately which makes it really expensive. You don’t need a separate pram as you can use the car seat as the bassinet and with the right mattress it functions as a moses basket. I love the whole concept of it and find it really practical. All in one - car seat, push chair and Moses basket. My little one loves to sleep in it. He feels secure and cozy inside it. I can highly recommended if you travel a lot. The frame is light and easy to fold, don’t take much space in the car. It is easy to push and the suspension is great. The basket is too small for shopping. All in all the best product I purchased so far as a parent:
  • 4.13/5
    • Strengths:

      Great suspension. One handed unfolding. Lie flat car seat is fab for long car journeys.

    • Weaknesses:

      Two handed folding. Awkward to get car seat into isofix. Quite small shopping bag.

    I needed a car seat that my little one could be in for over 3 hours at a time. The matrix light is fantastic for that and doubles up as Moses basket. It’s quiet awkward to get into the isofix, but I do like the front facing position to strapping baby in, rather than awkwardly leaning over them.

    The trider is a great pushchair, it’s large and fairly heavy but feels sturdy and has a great suspension for all terrains. I like the hand control brake and single handed unfolding. To fold up needs two hands and it’s not the smallest when folded but does fit in my small boot with the wheels taken off.

    I am in love with this pushchair, mostly because of the car seat. It has a lay flat option, is beautifully made and gives top comfort for baby. We used it for our 2nd child and plan to use it for our 3rd. It attaches easily onto the pushchair and the pushchair itself is sturdy, steers well and has great suspension - essential for those curbs! There is also plenty of basket space for all your shopping.

    I bought this pram with my first child 5 years ago and loved it. The feature of the carrycot turning into the car seat was the biggest appeal for me. You don’t have to wake your child up to change them to a car seat, the button to adjust the system is easy to push as well. The carrycot feature is amazing, allowing you to drive with the child laid down in the back meaning you can drive for longer without worrying about them being in the car seat for too long.

    When the baby gets older the system does get very heavy to lug around! However weighing the cons and pros I kept it and I am going to use it with my next one! I love it.

    I have used this pram with both of my children now, it's brilliant. The lie flat car seat was the reason we bought it. It's easy to put together and take down. Secure in the car when travelling and doesn't take up as much space as other prams in the boot. It's great for shopping trips and a walk in the park. It's very sturdy and will last throughout. Amazing pram!

    We love this pram. We got it when our son was born and are using it 3 and a half years later for our daughter. It's robust, stylish and great for anyone that loves the outdoors.

    My partner and I couldn't choose between the trider and the rider. We went for the rider, I regret it. My baby is 3 months old, so far the break has broken, the wheels creek, the liner inside the matrix is white and so ball'y already. The footmuff and liner covers are sold Sep and cost collectively £120!! On top of this our handle is loose, when it's up straight the break won't even close (located on the handle). My 3 month old baby is too big for the matrix already and we were told it would do until he's at least 22lbs or a year. I can't rate this product any lower. We spent £715+ on this pram in the woods colour and a vinicci at £500 would have done so much more and wouldn't be falling apart after 3 months.
  • 4.38/5
    • Strengths:

      Lie flat car seat, easy transfer from car to chassis, easy to fold down and open up, good off-roader

    I love this buggy! When searching for a buggy I needed a good off-roader for dog walks and a sturdy enough buggy to be able to run with. The trider does the trick! It has adjustable suspension for different terrain and is so easy to manoeuvre. The matrix light 2 car seat attachment is a lie flat car seat which is ideal for longer journeys and is highly recommended for the first 6 months of baby’s life. It then has 4 different angles that you can sit it at to grow with your baby. Easy to transfer from the chassis to the car and back. I would recommend the isofix base as securing it my seatbelts is a bit trickier. Storage underneath isn’t great but Jané do sell a mesh “shopping bag” that can be attached to the frame.
    I would certainly recommend this product!! You won’t regret it.

    I had this pram for my first baby, and absolutely loved it. The fact the bassinet laid flat was perfect and it was great off road as the suspension on the tyres took the majority of the shakes out before the reached baby sleeping.

    Good value for money compared to similar products. Great colour and comfortable to use. Doesn't go down as flat as I would like but still good value for money, in my opinion. Very sturdy and secure.

    I purchased this travel system 5yrs ago for my daughter as she was born with a serious health condition that meant she could not be in a normal car seat as she had tubes in her airways. This travel system gave me the ability to take my daughter in the car to hospital appointments and shopping etc which I would not have been able to take her with me if it wasn't for the design of this car seat. It's so easy to transfer from the frame to the car and vise versa and she was always more content laid in the carry cot / car seat than she was even in her cot. The frame is really easy to fold as well. It's so easy to steer (even with a heavy load of medical equipment in the shopping basket) I can highly recommend this travel system to anyone

    We love our Jane trider matrix 2 travel system which we purchased for our first baby. Although it’s quite big and can be heavy lifting in and out of the car, it’s an extremely stylish pushchair. We love that it is easy to fold and can be pushed on all kinds of terrains. Our little girl now 6 months old must find it so comfortable as sleeps when ever she is in it.

    Jané Trider matrix light 2 travel system / pushchair

    Right, I love my pushchair. It's unique (got it in the brown edition partly because it was cheaper but also different! And doesn't show the mud), it's easy to use, steer, fold. Looks to be comfortable for baby as the bouncy along, always sends my girl to sleep which is a God send! The car seat/carry cot is PERFECT. Means you don't have a wasted carry cot they use two times and then stick in the loft. My carry cot carseat has been thoroughly used! Gave me freedom to walk to town and get a lift home without worry of car seats. My girl looks like she had space and it mean not waking her from car to pushchair without her being left scrunched up into a car seat. The seat unit for after the carry cot is spacious, comfortable, easy to attach and so light. The whole pushchair is a breeze to push my 5 year old can easily control it. The basket is surprisingly good, it looks small but I've managed to fit more in than I originally thought!

    Cons- as I have said, I love my pushchair. My only real downsides are that the matrix car seat is on the heavy side, bit of a workout with a heavy baby in it. But not impossible for me. But if you had any reason why you wouldn't be able to manage doing some heavy awkward lifting, then definitely not suitable for you. The basket is a tad small, but I've never struggled to carry my shop in it, just know your limits. The price varies for colours, like most brands but again annoying if you love a blue but don't want to waste money on a £100 price difference. The bag included is basic. It's OK but nothing fancy or special.

    Overall, a great buy. Great for woodland walks, beach strolls, shopping trips etc. I walk most places and for a walker this is perfect. May be a tad bulky for someone in a car 99% of the time.

    Great stylish pushchair. Loved that it has 3 wheels and my daughter was always happy riding in it. Super easy to assemble, and fold when not in use. I can do everything one handed which will come in handy when the next little one is here. So happy with our choice!
  • 4.88/5
    • Strengths:

    I love Jane products. I have this as well as the twone and a few other accessories (such as footmuffs).
    I think they are so well made, beautifully crafted and so safe and secure for baby. They fold down and are compact enough to fit in a smaller car boot. I have the isofix so I use the pram/car seat as main car seat. I love the fact it can lie down as well as sit up, so baby is always comfortable. Only thing I found was the rain cover did tear really easily next to the velcro.
    I would absolutely recommend a Jane pram to anyone. Yes they can be expensive but fof a travel system we were willing to pay more and so pleased we did. The quality, the look, how its made is beyond incredible. You will not be disappointed.

    I have Jane Matrix Slalom travel system and I couldn't ask for better pushchair. Carrycot lays flat and I don't need to wake baby up by transferring it from car seat into carrycot. Highly recommended.

    After a lot of research on pushchairs and talking to friends I knew that we needed a pushchair which had a pram element to it to ensure that the baby would be laying flat. In addition I was also really worried about car seats as I knew babies couldn't be in the car seat for more than 2 hours at a time without at least a 30 minute break. This gave us a dilemma as we are in the car a lot for work and for travelling between the North and South West. I also knew that we needed a pram that was all terrain.
    Armed with our criteria we stumbled on the Jane Trider with Matrix 2 which after careful consideration was the one for us even though the matrix 2 carrycot is heavier compared to its competitors but it was an all in one solution. The matrix 2 is not great for long journeys as the baby can lay flat, but we have also purchased the mattress for the matrix 2 so that when we are away for the night the baby will be able to sleep in the carrycot as well. Its been a win win situation. The chassis itself is well built with the C section at the back so that I am not banging my ankles against the back of the pushchair ensuring I stand upright at all times great for my weak back. It also works for our situation as we live down a uneven drive way and I walk along many different bridle paths that this works really well for us. Its being a great addition for our growing family.

    I was looking at this from the day I feel pregnant and was wonded it was a lot of money to spend on a Puch chair but so so worth the price. My husband's family live 2 hours ago and the fact it can lie flat so we don't have to worry about restricting her breathing it a huge weight of our minds plus the added fact we always have a bassinet with us means when doing over night trips we have less to pack. You can also use it with or without an isofix base, so we didn't have to buy another car seat for my husband's car. It's sturdy and built to last and they sell spare parts of you want to make it look new again.

    Good pram for children, might be difficult to fold into small spaces like small car boots, small living spaces as the wheels are big at the back, would be better if there was a better and different range of colours to suit everyone and if it came with the matching accessories such as a changing bag then the value for its money would be much better.

Its so easy to set up & take apart. even the pushchair part it great. its design is brill. its looks really comfort for my daughter to sit in and she looks so content and happy in it! As mum i love it, I needed something that would be easy when out and about & be able to get in & out the car.
    Its quality of the material is lovely. And it feels so nice and secure. which makes me happy.
    Its great and i would recommend it to everyone.
