Question about Quinny Freestyle 3 XL Stroller

Forward and Backward facing Quinny freestyle 3xl

Hi all,

I have purchased this Quinny as it states on every website that it is forward and backward facing which is why I bought this in the first place.
Now I have no indictaion in the instructions how I can turn the pushchair bit so it is backward facing.
Can anybody help?
I do hope they don't mean it is only backward facing with the car seat as I don't want to push around the Maxi Cosi all the time as I think it is not comfortable enough for my son.
Has anybody got any idea how I can make this to face backward as I'd like to keep an eye on the baby :-)

Thank you!
I have the same problem, and want to convert mine to face backwards but can't see how to do this in the (very limited) instruction manual nor can I work out how to do it after taking the seat off... I have a friend who has (I think) the same model and has it backward facing. I hope to see her soon and will ask her for advice. If no one has given advice on line in the mean time I will let you know what she says!

Hi,
I had never heard of this stroller so I just spent the last hour on their website, what a cool stroller! Here's a link to the manual that I've been reading..
http://www.quinny.nl/media/producthandleidingen/Quinny/01274_inst_ES_061808Zapp4.pdf
The manual actually says that for the 'carseat' it has to be installed in the stroller only backward facing. If your friend has it installed the other way I would ask her. When I looked at the diagram of the pins is doesn't look like it would 'click' in safely facing the other way but I could be wrong. This manual has pictures that might help you.
You are very lucky to have your children in this day & age! Our strollers were from the dark ages :-). Good luck to you & your young ones.

Hi there.

Like all Quinny Pramettes/Pushchairs, the Quinny XL is fully reversable.

To swap chair from forward to rear-facing just turn it around and snap it back into place

Here is complete instruction manual:

Online User Manual and Guide for Quinny Freestyle 3 XL

If instead your problem is that you do not know if to mount frontward or backward facing a car seat, bear in mind that only chairs for babies up to six month can be mounted facing backward when on the front sit. All other baby chairs are mounted facing frontward.

About the only I can suggest which you may have tried already is a safety catch that prevents the push arms from fully repositioning to the opposite side.

The other case may be as you stated that in a more advanced model yours is only intended for use in a car seat. However, this should be against all CODES today as all car seats must have the child facing rearward.

Look for a push pin or other release that will allow the push arms to fully reposition themselves to the other side.

And your friend may hold the final answer for you too. But, I think (as a grand father with two daughters) that you Moms can figure these things out without a man necessarily.

We have another expert on site, dirinda is the first part of her nickname and she will certainly know. I've been holding off awaiting her reply to you. She specializes in these matters.

Regards and good luck,

I NEED A BAG TO HAVE UNDER MY QUINNY DO YOY NOW WHERE TO BAY IT ON INTERNET!!


Good Evening

The Quinny Freestyle 3XL has been discontinued in the UK for some years, so we're no longer able to supply items for it. If you're in the UK you'll need to find one through a private seller.

If you're in a country where the Freestyle 3XL is still available to buy brand new from retailers, make contact with one of these retailers and ask them to order the bag for you.

Quinny Carrycot Compatible with Quinny Dreami?


Hi,

The Dreami for the Freestyle 3XL is compatible with the Buzz. You will need to get a set of Buzz adapters (these are the same adapters that you would use to attach the Cabrio Fix carseat) these should cost around £18 or see if you can get them on eBay!

Hope this helps.

Quinny front wheel Quinny Freestyle 3XL are Los/wobbly. Is there a way for me to open the front wheel suspension?


Hi, I wouldn't try opening the wheel suspension as you will never get it back together, what I suggest is that you buy a new or used set of front wheels for you buggy on ebay, there is lots of spare parts to be purchased in very good condition. Regards marie

Forward and Backward facing Quinny freestyle 3xl


I have spoken to the friend who has the freestyle 3XL, and has her pushchair facing backwards (not the car seat, but the actual pushchair). It seems it depends on what age model you have. On mine (sadly) I cannot turn the seat around. However, on the ones which can be adjusted (possibly the newer models - mine was 2nd hand), look under the foot rest. If yours can be adapted, there should be a lever under there which enables you to turn the frame around. If there isn't a lever then it's probably not one that can be swapped.

Hope this is helpful and that yours is one of the models that can be altered!
