Diono Quantum Launch

Diono recently launched their brand new multi-mode pushchair, Quantum Travel System and I was kindly invited along to the event. It was held at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge last month. I haven't used any of their products before but I have heard amazing things about their Radian Car Seat so I was very keen to see what features they had put onto a travel system.


The event itself was great. I got to catch up with some other bloggers, Hannah from Budding Smiles, Lucy from Mrs H's Favourite Things and Al from The Dad Network. There was food, drink and DJ Sara Cox on the decks. The atmosphere was lovely.



The Quantum Travel System looks fantastic. Its stylish and modern in design and perfect for both mums and dads. I say this because I have a very bright, vibrant, patterned stroller which my husband hates using but I know he would be more than happy to be seen pushing this one. It is available in black, navy, teal and red. I really liked the navy. 



The first thing I noticed is all the clever design features. It's clear that Diono has engineered the Quantum to ensure that it makes the parent's life easier and that baby's ride will be safe and comfortable.



The feature that I was blown away by was the brake. It is easily the best brake I have ever seen on a pushchair. Laugh all you like at me but this honestly was a revelation. It is a very simple one step brake which is easily located in the middle of the bar. Finally a brand have listened to all our grumblings. No more stubbed toes and scuffed shoes.

A massive thumbs up is given to the convertible 3 in 1 smart seat. I've never seen anything like it. The carriage is able to be transformed into a toddler seat with clips and therefore you don't have to have 2 different seats like other strollers. This is such a space saver and a genius idea in my opinion. 

Another feature which is perfect for us as a travel loving family is the extra large eclipse hood. In sunnier weather we often struggle to find a hood that shields the sun away from all areas of Ophelia's body. It also has a sun visor, peekaboo panel and a ventilation panel making it ideal for all the elements. 

There are numerous other designs that made the stroller fab such as the extra large basket, one hand easy fold, parent facing option, 6 position handle bars and the list continues. 



There was a small test track set up so that we could really put the Quantum to the test. It had various terrains along the track to put the stroller through its paces. The test track actually reminded me of my school run journey. I encounter curbs, rough pavements and grass. The Quantum was easy to manoeuvre and incredibly lightweight.

My first impressions are wonderful. I was very impressed with the stroller. It's really been designed with parents in mind making it adventure ready. It would certainly make any journey enjoyable and stress free. I would love to give it a full test as it seems perfect for our  outgoing, travel loving, adventure craving family. For £500 I think it is fantastic value for money and very competitive against the rest of the market.

*Thanks to Diono for inviting me to the launch. I was not paid to attend however, my expenses were covered. All opinions are my own*

  1. This looks like it has everything and is very easily convertible and compact! It was not easy choosing our stroller, we needed one that was a car seat, which easily adapted to the stroller then again converted when baby was bigger. I like the look of these. Very nice indeed...plus the no stubbing your toes anymore, BONUS!!!

  19. Love the pic of you all sticking your head in the cut out :) I don't have a kid so am not going to pretend I know anything about baby pushchairs, but I do like travel so the hood to protect the kiddies' face would be ideal if I ever did have a baby and took it on holiday x
