THE 5 PONT HARNESS SYSTEM
As a conscious parent may be you have ever read through reviews of car seats. Most probably you may have heard parents rant or rave about different seat belts and buckles. May be you could spend so much effort trying to adjust a simple harness. Fortunately the harness on the Baby Trend EZ 5 car seat is well engineered and it is easy to adjust and to click into place.
It is important to have knowledge about the harness system while your are traveling with your baby. In that case this travel system gets extra points from me because you know the stroller has a 5 point harness as well. This is always comes for strollers that I purchase because it ensures your son won’t wriggle his way out! . Proper harness system means proper safety of your baby.
THE MULTIPLE RECLINING POSITIONS-
It is good to know that the baby buggy in this travel system has multiple reclining positions for your baby. This multiple reclining positions allow for you to sit your little one upright or you can lay them back for a nap while needed. Parents always liked having many reclining options as on a sunny day it allows them to keep the sun out of their child’s eyes by having the variety of positions. You can use the multiple reclining positions while needed. It will help to keep your baby in proper shed from the scorching sun.
THE PROPER WEIGHT LIMITATIONS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR-
It is a prime factor to think about the weight limitations of a car seat for you as you have to carry it out. Most of the infant car seat has weight restrictions of 5-30 pounds. Actually the thing is when you first got your child’s car seat and saw that it had a maximum weight limit of 35 pounds you exactly thought that it is Great! This will last at least a couple of years for your baby!. You also think that he wouldn’t reach that weight for a long time. Actually what you didn’t realize is that kids will normally reach the height limit first. If you are thinking about The Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 Travel System then I must have told you that it has a height limit of 30 inches. I must tell you that even if you have a smaller child, it is recommended that you switch to a convertible seat by the time your child is one year old.
The Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 Travel System stroller for this travel system has a weight limit of 50 pounds which gives you plenty of time to get good use out of it for your baby.
THE AMAZING FLEX-LOC SYSTEM
What is new on this Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 Travel System? Ok let me tell you that this Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 Travel System has Flex-Loc technology that you see on many of the newer infant car seats. The car seat comes with a base that can be easily installed by using the LATCH system. If you want to install the car seat you have to install the car seat in your car, you just simply click the car seat itself into the base that will be all done. The LATCH system of this seat is easy to install and will allow you to keep the base in the car so you don’t need to install your child’s car seat with every car trip. Isn’t it amazing?
As I am talking about this stroller and car seat I must tell you that the car seat can be easily removed from the base in your car and can be clicked into the stroller. This section is mostly done while your child is still small. while they are bigger and have better neck control as they are growing, they may be more comfortable sitting in just the stroller itself so easily.
When you are using the car seat in the stroller, the baby will face you (the car seat faces backwards). This is how you can keep a close eye on your newborn angle. While you just place your child in the trolley itself, your child will face away from you. There is also a “peekaboo” window in the canopy of the stroller so that you can also check on your little one while walking.
MAXIMUM EASINESS TO FOLD
Trend EZ Ride 5 Travel System stroller will give you in this system features a one hand easy fold mechanism which allows you for quick and easy storage any time any where you want. You will certainly note that the one hand fold feature of all other strollers are available markets do take some getting used to you also know that it is not as simple as they make it sound always . You have to understand that It is still a rather large stroller as i think which is at 33 pounds, this is definitely not an umbrella stroller! that you’re trying to fold up. Thereby it does take some coordination. I can ensure you that a couple of practice runs and you’ll easily fold it up like a pro in no time.
Ok, let’s come to the features of this exclusive and well engineered baby stroller. The features will blow your mind with their innovative designs. So let’s have a cheek..
1. THE SEAT OF THE STROLLER
Trend EZ Ride 5 Travel System stroller has the innovative recline of the seat that can be changed to different recline positions while you need. If you manage it to adjust to sit up all the way, the stroller can nearly achieve around 80 degrees. There is some toddlers which prefer to be sitting all the way up observing the environment to your baby . If it is all the way down than it can only do achieve around 45 degrees and it does not recline to be flat. You can easily use the stroller for toddlers which is up to 50 pounds only.
2. THE EASY ONE-HAND OPEN OR FOLD MECHANISM
When you need to fold the EZ Ride 5 stroller, just look for a button that you will find on the handlebar. There you will find a locking mechanism in there that you just have to slide to unlock this. After that you just slide the lock then squeeze it and lift the stroller to see that it is easily starting to fold the way you want.
The EZ Ride 5 stroller can be folded up easily with one hand. You just have to make sure you that have it fully collapsed while folding, while you need to fold it with one hand you’ll have to help it completely fold up just by pulling the child’s tray towards you. Then you simply have to clip in the red lock on the side.
I must say for convenience, you only fold the stroller when you are about to put it in the trunk or if you are going to put it away for storage you need.
This is why once you have folded it, make sure the basket sort of drags to the ground should you decide to wheel it just behind you. You should reverse the process to open the stroller when you need to use it for your baby. And obviously at the time of opening the stroller It would usually take two hands to open it.
3. THE STORAGE BASKET
The basket of EZ Ride 5 stroller underneath looks small but it is actually quite spacious that can not be imagined before to open. You can easily fit a medium sized diaper bag like the skip hop diaper bag if you want and still it will leave a room for some grocery bags to put in the basket.
4. THE STROLLER HANDLE
The handle of EZ Ride 5 stroller is easy adjustable in four positions. You can easily have it lowered if the one pushing it is petite or you have it at the highest level if your tall hubby will be just in the one pushing it. There can be found a middle ground level too while should you need it. And obviously the fourth position looks like it’s already dangling down actually all the way down. So I don’t think you’ll be needing that angle for using.
5. THE COOL PARENT TRAY
A well-designed parent tray is attached to the EZ Ride 5 stroller handle as a parent sometimes needs these kinds of the tray for their uses also. EZ Ride 5 stroller has two cup holders and also a covered container in the middle of the stroller. Who knows If you have a phone that leans towards the bigger sizes specially the iPhone 6plus, Samsung Galaxy Note, and the likes. You can not be able to put the phone inside the covered container. What You can do is however you just put your keys instead the tray.
6. THE BABY’S TRAY
You will be glad to know that there is a child’s tray with two cup holders as well. Your little baby can put some small snacks in them too as the snack tray seems to be only the flat area between the two cup holders as well.
7. THE CANOPY OF THIS STROLLER
The canopy of this stroller has a very decent coverage. When it is fully extended and is viewed from the side, it will simply extends to almost 130 degrees.
At the time when you are using as a travel system and you want to have a full coverage, you will have the car seat canopy and the EZ Ride 5 stroller canopy meet in the middle point.
The canopy also has a peek a boo window on top and you can simply use it to take a quick glance at your child when you are concerned about your baby .
I must tell you that the peek a boo window of EZ Ride 5 stroller is made of a mesh netting so if you sometimes need an extra ventilation for your little baby, you normally can leave it open.
On the other hand, you just can seal it with the flap if the scorching sun is in the direction where it can shine right through the EZ Ride 5 stroller’s peek a boo hole.

The Baby Trend EZ 5 Travel System is only 16.5″ in width, yes this car seat is narrow in size. I think this is a good thing if you have a small car or if you are trying to fit multiple car seats in the same vehicle at the same time. The baby trend EZ 5 travel system is in some higher quality choices for both travel systems and narrow car seats as we explain through the articles.
9. THE WHEELS AND BREAKES SYSTEM

Let’s talk about some concerns of this EZ 5 travel system
THE LOWER QUALITY THAN THE OTHER TRAVEL SYSTEMS
The Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 travel system is found one of the least expensive available on the market and it also does have a few downfalls with having some advantages. It sometimes can not feel as sturdy as other has, much expensive models like the Baby Jogger Citi Mini and the BOB strollers are. I think this can not be bothered you if you are not looking for a top of the line stroller right? Yes it is worth noting much.
THE HARD MANEUVER SYSTEM
The Baby Trend EZ Ride 5 stroller sometimes also handle badly. Few often leaving it hard to maneuver around you. This is most probably due to its small front wheel I guess. It will be fine If you are planning on only using the pram on flat or smooth surfaces such as a sidewalk or street. In that case I think you shouldn’t have any issues with handling it.
But while you are taking this stroller on grass or you are even trying to manage it around clothes racks while shopping yes it will quickly become frustrating for you. I myself use my stroller with baby several times a week, so it becomes really important to me for it to be user friendly and easy to push around while using it.
IT IS REAR FACING ONLY
The car seat that you are providing with this Baby Trend EZ travel system is rear-facing only which is not preferred by all sometimes. It cannot be converted to a forward facing car seat like others. Here are some experts who insist on switching to a convertible car seat by the time flying at the time your child is one year old. That is meant you might only get one year’s use of it out of this car seat.
Actually it really depends on what you are searching for out of a car seat for your newborn baby. I myself personally wanted a car seat for my baby that should be lightweight obviously like the one that comes with this EZ 5 travel system, yes I was willing to then buy a convertible car seat when my son became a year old. In your case you can opt for a typically heavier convertible car seat to start with your baby and that way you can get more use out of it for your baby.
THE REDUCED STORAGE SYSTEM
Actually when the seat is fully reclined in this stroller, you may see some of the storage space in the basket underneath of the stroller is lost. As you know someone who has jam packs the storage basket, obviously this could definitely become a nuisance for him. Whatever, I think if you are a lighter packer, this might not affect you so much you are thinking.
NOT HAVING ENOUGH HEAD SUPPORT
This stroller making company says that it features a large head support that can be used in either the stroller or the car seat so protectively. First of all this means that you will have to switch the head support between car seat and stroller if you do not use the car seat and stroller as a combined system which means in dual system.
On the other hand the head support just does not offer the same support as other similar head supports is seen in similar car seats like others. You may find looking elsewhere for an extra insert to keep your child’s head from slumping to the side as you want proper support of your baby.
PRICE OF THIS EZ 5 TRAVEL SYSTEM
This most amazing and well engineered Baby Trend travel system is amongst the cheapest you will find around you. This is so classic model for your baby. I can assure you that you will get what you pay for buying. In one word I must say that you will get better quality if you are willing to buy this baby stroller with care seat and you are able to spend more for your baby.
