Diono Quantum Classic Premium Travel System - Review



I love a good pram, just as much as the next Mum. Being a mother of two and a blogger I've tried out and reviewed so many different prams and travel systems over the years. With dozens of brands on the market it can be quite overwhelming when it comes to deciding on which model to go for. There are so many different factors to take in, different things you are looking for and of course different budgets to adhere to. As you can imagine I was delighted when Diono offered to send out their new Quantum Classic Premium Travel System to review. I was very excited to give it a spin and to try out all it's wonderful features.

What’s included
Chassis, convertible seat, XL hood, XL Basket, rain cover, carriage liner, mattress for carry cot, apron, removable seat liner, leather bumper bar, infant car seat adaptors, Pump for wheels, drinks holder, security wrist strap.


The Quantum's features
Convertible 3-in-1 smart seatThe innovative design of the Quantum allows the carry cot to be transformed to a toddler seat by simply connecting 4 clips at the back of the seat. It's so quick and easy to do and it's great to have the option to have one seat which does both jobs. It's a nightmare trying to store both seat and carry cot so this is a huge plus for me. We skipped the carrycot setting due to Ava's age but with it only taking seconds to convert from carry cot to seat I took pictures of both modes just to show you how impressive it is. The toddler seat is fantastic, it can be parent or forward facing. It has a padded liner for comfort and a 5 point harness for safety.


XL eclipse hood
Another fantastic feature is the four tier, eclipse canopy. It's the perfect way to protect against the elements, whether it be sun, (it offers SPF50+ protection) winds or light rain. There's also a peek-a-boo window, ventilation panel, pull down sun visor and a rain cover included. This has got to be one of my favourite features, something that I always look for in a pram.


One-step brake & air filled wheels
The break on the Diono Quantum Classic is another new feature for me and is unlike anything else I've seen. The break is quite a big section of the lower bar, a simple step on, step off movement is all that’s needed. Pushing a brake on a pram has never been an easier. I'm also a fan of proper wheels on prams so I was delighted to see air filled ones on the Quantum, included is a pump so you can add more air if you feel like they've deflated at all.

Co-ordinated touch points
The pram features textured and colour co-ordinated buttons which make for easy identification and operation. This is perfect for when friends or grandparents borrow the stroller and are a little unsure how to use it.

Car seat ready
The Quantum is car seat friendly and the adaptors are actually included which I think is amazing as usually you need to buy these separately at an additional cost. The adaptors work with numerous car seats and there's even a safe place to store them in the XL basket.



XL basket
When it comes to pushchair shopping baskets, bigger really is better. The extra-large basket is accessible in any mode, with space for a cabin-sized luggage bag! You'd be surprised by the amount of stuff I like to carry under my pram so the XL basket is a god send for me. 

One-hand fold
Another great feature is the one hand fold. The unique geared operation works in two steps and features an automatic lock clip to make sure thing easy when transporting the stroller with a little one in tow.



Overall thoughts
I love the Diono Quantum and I can't think of any negatives or things which I would improve. It did however take me a little while to get used to the steering as it's quite a bulky pram but that's only because it's so much different to the one I was using previously. The handlebar was something else that I had to get used to as it's quite square in shape but the fact that it can extend is ideal for tall parents like Nick and I.

My overall favourite feature has got to be the seat unit itself. Not only can it transform from carry cot to seat unit which is amazing in itself, but it can also forward or parent face. We are parent facing at the moment and Ava always looks well supported, comfortable and happy. The recline settings and XL hood are ideal for when she's due a nap.

It's plain to see that this travel system was designed with both infant and parent in mind. So many of it's thoughtful and clever features will make my life so much easier and I wish I had it back when Ava was a newborn baby. 
Not only is this pram innovative, practical and fit for purpose but it's also chic and stylish looking too. The Diono Quantum Classic Premium Travel System retails at £675 and is available to buy now.

  2. I love the design and colour of this pram, it is similar to Mollies bug pram hers also converts from carrycot to seat, the handle bars can be altered and it can be rear or forward facing which I love, hers is bulkier though so I can't take it shopping as I won't fit it and the shopping in the boot xXx

  3. Reviews can be so beneficial, as it is once a product is being used regularly that pros and cons become evident.

  5. Parent / Carer or forward facing options really important aspects. Little one benefits from facing parent / Carer, as allows for interaction / communication, etc. Though what I have found is when it comes to folding, pram may have to be in one position ( forward or parent / Carer facing) in order to fold. An easy, quick and safe folding process makes such a difference practically.

  6. XL Eclipse Hood seems a great bonus. As it is important to protect little one from the variety of elements such as :- Sun, wind, rain, sleet and snow. Looks good. Would be interested to know how well the pram performs in the long : longer term i.e. Durability.

    This looks fabulous! Love how the carrycot can actually tip up for older babies, and the big basket, I definitely need a big basket on a buggy!

  12. Good that so much is included with the pram. As pram being such a practical, useful item for baby / child it is practical / sensible to have all parts, pieces, additions which may be required. Thus enabling Parents / Carers to have outings which are conducive for family unit, lifestyle, etc.
