Chicco’s Newest Travel System – The Bravo Trio

Chicco’s newest travel system, the Bravo Trio was released in 2014. This revolutionary new 3-in-1 stroller is the next best thing since the Chicco Cortina travel system.

Use with the Chicco KeyFit 30 infant car seat and you have a full travel system. The nice thing is that while your baby is in the infant car seat, you can remove the seat from the Bravo stroller and just snap in the car seat into the stroller frame via an adapter. This makes the stroller less bulky and more lightweight. The stroller seat is easy to remove and the infant car seat is safe in the stroller frame and snaps in with a click. If you want to leave the stroller seat in the frame, using the adapter, the infant car seat will still fit in the stroller as a true travel system. When baby no longer desires to sit in the infant car seat, use the stroller for children up to 50 pounds.

The Chicco Bravo Trio is a good looking stroller, not amazing but definitely nice. Even though it is heavy at 23 pounds, it pushes smoothly inside or on paved roads. The Bravo does not have all the bells and whistles of higher end strollers but you are not paying that price at $350 for the Bravo stroller and the Chicco KeyFit 30 infant car seat. If you have any doubts, then don’t because the Chicco KeyFit 30 is one of the safest and highest rated infant car seats on the market. Not to mention, it is one of the easiest car seats to install.

I give the Bravo 2 thumbs up due to the Trio use and the KeyFit car seat option. Many people are comparing it to the Britax B-Agile, but the Bravo seems to win them over. It will get you through for years to come due to its minimal bulk. Go for it!
