Is the top mounted toddler seat safe; will the pram tip up?
The top fitting toddler seat was developed especially to
safely attach to the ABC Everest Buggy. We haven't had any
safety concerns with the top-mounted seats, and we believe
that the latest design top fitting toddler seat is more than
ever a safe and sensible option on level ground.
The top mounted toddler seat is in fact
much safer and easier to use than most front mounted toddler
seats. This is due to the weight displacement being over the
two back wheels. Front mounted toddler seats can cause tipping
or unbalancing on a three-wheel buggy.
NOTE: The toddler seat is
required to rest against the top of the buggy frame for
correct balance and stability. The toddler seat must be
positioned directly over the buggies rear wheels.
there a weight limit for toddlers in the toddler seat?
Yes, the limit is 18 kilograms for Static Toddler Seat.
Reclining Toddler Seat suitable for newborns up to 25kg child.
are the folded dimensions of the ABC buggies?
Single buggy: 110cm long (without front wheel), 130cm
(front wheels on), Folded flat height is approx. 25cm, 63cm
wide, and 10kg weight.
Twin buggy: 110cm long (without front wheels), 130cm
(front wheels on), Folded flat height is approx. 25cm 74cm
wide, and 15kg weight.
the Everest lay horizontal for newborns?
It does not lay fully horizontal. However, it lays at 15
degrees off 180 (horizontal). This position is safe, and we
believe preferred for newborns.
type of brake does the buggy have?
Every buggy is required to have a braking system. The ABC
brake is made of steel and firmly grips the tyres for 100%
confidence, and is the only type which permits stride comfort
(won't kick the back of the buggy) - as there is no bar
connecting the rear wheels or obstruction caused by the more
familiar type of brake found on most mass-produced (plastic)

easily will one of your buggies fit into the boot of my car?
Our buggies collapse to a compact size. You can easily take
off one or all three wheels if you need to. You'll see how
easy it is to fit an Adventure Buggy Company buggy into your

seen some prams with a second front wheel fitted for extra
stability. Can you tell me more about this?
We provide a 4-wheel conversion kit. This includes a spreader
bar and 4th wheel. This provides complete stability,
especially if you want to traverse over uneven ground. You
still need common sense on where you will safely take your two
children, but generally the 4 wheels provide ample stability.
The top fitting toddler seat was developed to permit use of a
toddler seat without the 4-wheel conversion kit. Prior to this
development we sold the kit and seat as a combined kit.
twin toddler seats safe to use with only one toddler in them
and therefore on one side of the pram rather than in the
centre as they would be with the single toddler seat?
The Dbl-Twin toddler seat (Reclining or static) is stable and
safe to be used with one toddler/child in only one side.
the height of the Reclining Toddler/Newborn Seat when fitted
to the ABC Buggy?
The height of the Reclining Toddler Seat attached to the ABC
Buggy is: 145cm with canopy up / down, 130cm with canopy
