The Cybex Priam 3 2019 stroller is one of my favorite luxury models. It offers modern functionality, superior comfort and luxe style while still meeting all the challenges that today’s parents face.
For 2019 Cybex came out with this stunning rose gold frame, faux leather accents, and beautiful fashions. You can customize your Priam 3 by choosing the finish of the frame and the seat color combination. The black fabrics with the rose gold frame finish is probably my favorite combination.
Speaking about customization, the previous Priam model had lot more customization options available that some parents found overwhelming. Before you could choose not only the color of the fabrics and finish of your frame, but also the size of the wheels and type of the seat.
It looks like for 2019, Cybex decided to simplify the model by offering only one type of wheels and one type of the seat. You can still transform Priam 3 into a travel system with an infant car seat or a pram with a purchase of a bassinet.

This buggy has nice all-terrain wheels that can tackle different type of terrain. Perfect for long walks at the park or busy city streets. Large rear wheels together with all-wheel suspension provide a smooth ride. It can even transform into a two-wheel mode for bumpy terrain like sand or snow.
It also features a huge canopy that goes down to the bumper bar, adjustable leg rest, flip-flop-friendly brake, huge basket, telescoping handle bar, swing-away bumper bar, easy one-hand fold, standing fold, and never-flat tires. The maneuverability on Priam is outstanding! You can push it easy with one hand even fully loaded.
The roomy reversible seat has one-hand deep almost flat recline suitable from 3 months. BTW, there has been a confusion with the recline. Some sites say it’s a ‘flat’ recline and some say it’s ‘almost flat’. Well, for US they made it ‘almost flat’ unlike Europe that got the ‘full flat recline’. Don’t ask me why, but if you live in US you will get a seat with ‘almost flat’ recline.
The seat height of the Priam 3 is positioned slightly higher on the frame than on a regular stroller. It is perfectly aligned with the average table height so you can use it on the go as a high chair in restaurants. All these great updated have increased the weight of the stroller up to 28 lbs.
I gave this buggy 5 out of 5 stars because I was very impressed with the design and performance. Of course there are some things that could be improved. You know me, I always give you the bad news too. Haha.
The fold is a little bulky in my opinion. Also, there is no manual nor automatic lock for the frame. Another thing I would like to see is more storage. Maybe a small pocket in the back of the seat.
As you’ve probably guessed, this buggy is not cheap. The price ranges from $999 – $1,049 depending on the color combination you select. It comes with infant car seat adapters for Cybex car seat, a bumper bar, a cup holder, and a rain cover.
There are also many cool accessories available for purchase. One of them are the skis that your put instead of front wheels turning your buggy into a snowmobile. LOL. It’s available on Amazon, (free shipping) as well as PishPoshBaby (free shipping).
Detailed Review of Cybex Priam 3 2019 Stroller
The canopy is HUGE! It includes two large panels and one zipped-in panel and goes down all the way to the bumper bar providing full coverage. A small pop-out sunvisor provides even more coverage but can be tucked away when not needed. There is also a small peekaboo window in the back with magnetic closure.
As I’ve mentioned above, for 2019 there is only one seat option. The seat is reversible with ONE-HAND lever recline that has 3 recline positions and goes to almost a flat position suitable from 3 months. It used to be a full flat recline, but I guess they’ve changed it for 2019 for some reason. Another weird thing is that in Europe they still have a full recline for 2019 model, but not in US. Maybe they didn’t pass some sort of regulation. I am puzzled as much as you are.
Anyways, if you bring the leg rest up and fully recline the seat, your child will have a comfortable bed-like environment for a long nap. The seat has the same recline positions in parent-facing mode. It can accommodate a child from 3 months and up to 55 lbs (5 year old). This roomy seat is 13″ wide with 23″ seat back and a measurement of 25″ from the bottom of the seat to the top of the canopy. This is a tall seat back since the average is about 20″.
The adjustable leg rest has 3 positions.
It has an adjustable padded 5-point harness with center release buckle that is very easy to unlock. Love that rose gold buckle! It comes with a luxury faux leather bumper bar that is swing-away and removable.
The handle bar is covered with soft faux leather that feels SO nice when you touch it. I love luxury strollers! The telescoping handle bar can be adjusted from 39″ up to 43″ from the ground. This is a very high handle bar so tall parents should be happy.
The basket is a great size which is important for shopaholic stay-at-home moms like me. LOL. I swear, I feel like I am always shopping! There is always something that’s missing. The other day my daughter put her toothbrush somewhere so I had rush to the store the next morning to get one and of course I somehow spent $50! The basket was full of stuff and it wasn’t all toothbrushes!
Anyways, this basket is very easy to access from the back and it has a magnetic closure. If you are trying to fit a lot of stuff in, you can expend the basket by keeping it open. It will definitely fit a large diaper bag and a lot of other stuff.
For 2019 there are only one type of wheels which are lighter than the previous model’s terrain wheels, but sturdier than the previous model’s trekking wheels. The wheels are never-flat hard rubber with 7.5″ in the front and 12″ in the back. The front wheels are swivel, but can be locked straight. The previous model used to have only a rear-wheel suspension, but it was upgraded to an all-wheel suspension for 2019. Great maneuverability!
If you have been to the beach with your stroller, you know how hard it is to drag it over the sand. Well, with Priam it will be much easier because you can easily switch it into the two-wheel mode, without having to remove the seat. This also makes it very convenient to roll up the steps.
You will love this easy one-hand fold. Folds with the seat attached. All you need to do is bring the back of the seat forward and bring the handle bar down. That’s all! I was a little surprised to learn that it does NOT have an automatic nor manual lock. This is definitely a minus. It does have a standing fold and if you unlock the wheels you can roll it behind you like a luggage. This is a bulky package with folded dimensions of 37.4” L x 23.6” W x 15.7”.
You can use this stroller from birth with a car seat or as a pram by purchasing a bassinet. All you need to do is replace the seat with the bassinet and you have a stylish pram! I absolutely love this bassinet! It’s very high quality and stylish. It can also be used as a carry cot so your baby will have another place to sleep in at home. The UVP 50+ canopy is very large and extendable with a zipped in panel. The super soft mattress is made out of memory foam and will give your baby a hug!
It comes with infant car seat adapters that work with Cybex car seats only. It does not work with any other popular brands. On the bright side, the Cybex car seats are one of my favorites. They are stylish, safe and high quality. Too bad they are so expensive! Haha.
What?! If you live in a cold area or like to go to ski resorts, you can replace the front wheels with skis! I can’t believe there is a ski option! Haha! How cool is that? I guarantee you this will be a show stopper. I have to admit, I haven’t tried it with the skis, but it looks amazing!
It comes with infant car seat adapters for Cybex car seat, a bumper bar, a cup holder, and a rain cover. There are also many cool accessories available for purchase.
- Bulky fold. While the fold with the Lux seat is kind of bulky, the fold with the 2-In-1 is very bulky because you have to remove the seat before folding the frame. So when they say that Priam has one-hand fold, they mean it has one-hand fold when you use it with Lux seat only.
- No automatic lock. There is no lock at all even a manual one so it can open while you are trying to put it into the trunk of your car. This is very surprising since this is a luxury stroller.
- Works only with Cybex infant car seats. It comes with an universal adapter that works with all of the Cybex infant car seats and bassinet. Unfortunately, it does not work with any other popular car seats.
- Expensive. The price kills me. This is one of the most expensive strollers on the market. At least it comes with bunch of accessories.
