The Cybex Agis M-Air3 is a lightweight full-featured stroller that you can use every day for running errands or going for a walk at the park. This model is a serious competition for the beloved Britax B-Agile because it has a lot of similar features and then some.
Just like B-Agile it has a large canopy, deep recline, large basket, all-wheel suspension, flip-flop friendly brake, and a very roomy seat. It rolls on three hard rubber wheels that are not all-terrain, but can handle uneven pavement or some mummy terrain like mulch, grass or gravel.
The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. You can also convert M-Air3 into a travel system or a pram by replacing the seat with a Cybex infant car seat or a bassinet.
But that’s not all. The three features of M-Air 3 that B-Agile doesn’t have are: adjustable handle bar, swing-away bumper bar (included), and a standing fold. Despite all the extra features, M-Air3 weighs only 17 lbs! The one-hand fold and standing fold make it perfect for public transit. You can hold a child in one hand and a stroller in the other one.
Now style wise, if you compare the two, M-Air3 definitely wins. It has more modern colors, slicker frame design, and cooler looking wheels. I also don’t like that the new B-Agile 2016 model doesn’t have the foot rest, so your child’s legs will be just hanging. Btitax decided get rid of the foot rest because of the tipping hazard (older toddlers kept stepping on it to get into the stroller), but now there is no footrest at all! Check out this chart to see how Agis M-Air3 compares to the other Cybex models.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars because I think it’s a step up from B-Agile. It has more features and more modern design. All other main competitors in the same weight category like B-Agile, City Mini, and Armadillo don’t have an adjustable handle bar nor the bumper bar. The M-Air3 could be your ONLY stroller that you can use everyday and travel with. Price is also very reasonable in my opinion. It comes in five beautiful colors and retails for around $269 on Amazon. The bumper bar is included. All other accessories need to be purchased separately.
-Huge canopy. It has a large three-panel canopy with one mesh zipped-in panel that can be exposed when needed. The canopy goes all the way down to the bumper bar providing plenty of coverage. The mesh panel is used instead of the peekaboo window because there isn’t one. I wish ti has a closure for when it’s windy or sunny.
-Very roomy seat. The seat is 13.5″ wide with a 20″ seat back and a measurement of 26″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. As you can see, the seat is a little wider and the canopy is a little higher than on Cybex Balios M that has a reversible seat. You taller toddler will have no problem fitting in. The seat has a strap recline system and goes to almost a flat position suitable for a newborn. You will need one hand to recline the seat and both hands to bring it back. If you want to put a young baby into the seat, I would recommend using an infant insert for additional support. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs.
-5-point harness. It has an adjustable padded 5-point harness with a center release buckle. The good news is that the waist straps are connected to the shoulder straps so there are no puzzle pieces. Very easy to lock and unlock.
-Adjustable handle bar. The telescoping handle bar goes from 37″ up to 42″ from the ground. Great for taller and shorter parents.
-Bumper bar. INCLUDED! It comes with a nice swing-away removable bumper bar.
-Huge basket. The basket is large, but is a little harder to access than on Cybex Balios M because of the lower position of the seat and the crossbar. You will be able to fit a larger diaper bag in it plus some small essentials.
-Flip-flop-friendly brake. No more shoe scratches! Why can’t all strollers make a this kind of brake?
– Wheels. It rolls on three hard rubber wheels with 6″ in the front and 9.5″ wheels in the back. These wheels are designed for everyday life like going to the park, mall, or running errands. They are not all-terrain like on Cybex Balios M, but can handle some uneven pavement, grass or mulch. The wheels are almost the same size as on Britax B-Agile. The front wheel is double and can be locked straight for rougher terrain.
-All-wheel suspension. Like all Cybex M models Agis M-Air3 has all-wheel suspension.
-One-hand fold. Another great feature that ALL Cybex M models have is the ONE-HAND FOLD. This is the type of fold all parents are looking for. All you need to do is to pull on two straps located in the middle of the seat and the stroller will fold in half. Easy! The fold is very compact and there is an automatic lock and standing fold. The folded dimensions are: 30″L x 22.5″W x 14″H. For comparison the Britax B-Agile fold to 29″L x 22.75″W x 10″H. While the B-Agile is a little more compact, it does not have a bumper bar nor an adjustable handle bar.
-Bassinet option. You can turn your stroller into a stylish pram by replacing the seat with a matching bassinet called Cybex Carry Cot M. It features a comfortable, extra wide mattress that ensures an ergonomically correct and comfortable lying position. The integrated UVP50+ sun canopy protects from sun, wind and rain. The carry cot weighs only 8 lbs and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 20 lbs. It works with ALL Cybex M models. How great is that?
-Travel system option. You can also convert your stroller into a travel system by using it with one of the Cybex infant car seats. You can put the car seat on top of the main seat without removing it, or you can remove the seat and put the car seat right into the frame. I like the look of the Cybex infant car seat with just the stroller frame. Looks slick!
-No mesh window closure. The large mesh panel is a big plus, but I wish it had a closure in case it’s windy, rainy or sunny.
-Works only with Cybex car seats. I wish it would work with other popular car seats. While the Cybex car seats are at the top of my list, they are a little pricey. So it might be hard to afford for parents who are on the budget.

Where to buy it
My favorite place to buy strollers and a lot of other baby items is Amazon. It usually has the lowest prices, free shipping, free returns and no sales tax. How great is that? You can get Cybex Agis M-Air3 in one of the five beautiful colors for around $269 on Amazon (free shipping/free returns and no sales tax). It comes with a bumper bar. All other accessories like cup holder or infant car seat adapter needs to be purchased separately.
