If you look at the travel system, it looks stylish and well made. The SafeMax car seat is one of the best for infants from 4 to 35 pounds because it has top safety features like a SafeZone base and an anti-rebound bar, which are normally seen in more expensive brands. The two features greatly reduce the risk of injuries in case of an accident by absorbing and dissipating crash forces. Also, Safe Max has side impact protection, tested using energy levels approximately 2x times those of Federal crash test standard, so your baby is truly surrounded in safety. This car seat is also equipped with a 5 point safety harness to keep your child secured in the seat. For comfort, the SafeMax car seat is nicely padded and also features an infant body pillow and breathable fabrics.

The base remains in your car to enable easy car seat transfer from stroller to car and vice versa. There are also built-in indicator levels and an adjustment knob to help you achieve the correct recline angle when installing the car seat. Whether you are installing the car seat in the base or stroller, it is easy to do, and there is an easy release latch on the back of the car seat.

About Evenflo and the Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System 

Evenflo is an internationally recognized manufacturer of high-quality baby care and juvenile products. This company dates back to 1920 when it started manufacturing rubber nipples to feed the baby. Later in 1947, it acquired Oil City Glass Co, which enabled Evenflo to introduce a line of glass baby bottles. In 1960 the company also introduced several nursing kits comprising bottles, nipples, sterilizers, and other accessories.

The following years saw Evenflo go through ownership changes until 1995 when it launched the Evenflo Company Inc., and various collections of car seats, strollers, and other home products.

Today Evenflo is a subsidiary of Goodbaby International Holdings Limited, a juvenile products company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. But, Evenflo has still retained its headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Ohio, USA, and it continues to produce high-quality products at affordable prices.

Evenflo boasts a wide selection of strollers from umbrella strollers, joggers, doubles, and even convertibles to cater to everyone’s needs. Parents love Evenflo strollers and car seats because they have great quality at affordable pricing. It’s also great that almost all Evenflo strollers are sold as a travel system, eliminating looking for a compatible car seat and stroller. Here is a review of the Evenflo Pivot Modular.

Key features of the Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System

The Evenflo Pivot Stroller makes the best part of the travel system and has the following features:

It’s a multi-functional unit that works as a baby carriage, infant stroller, and toddler stroller. The toddler seat can recline the seat into a flat position to turn to a bassinet mode for infants and newborns to ride safely and comfortably. It has a strap and a clip on the back that releases to open into a bassinet. You can also remove the toddler seat and attach the car seat directly into the frame to have a lightweight infant stroller. And lastly, your child can ride in the toddler seat when they are bigger. The toddler seat is spacious and comfortable with features like a padded harness, multiple recline settings, a large 3-panel canopy with a mesh peek-a-boo window, and a convenient snack holder for the baby.

Six different riding configurations- between the three functions (infant carriage, infant stroller, and toddler stroller), there are six different ways to ride with the Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel system. The baby can face the parent or the world.

Easy maneuvering – the Evenflo stroller features two front cruiser tires that are comfortable to maneuver on various terrains like city streets, sidewalks, and gravel paths. Meanwhile, the rear wheels have suspensions, making the journey a smooth ride for your child.

Brakes- the Evenflo Pivot stroller has rear wheels featuring two-step braking system brakes, which are easy to engage, although not very convenient.

Ergonomic handlebar-the stroller has a handlebar with a fixed height of 40 inches from the ground, which works well for most people except maybe very tall users over 6’4″ who might find it a bit short for their liking.

Canopy-the Evenflo Travel System features a large, 3-panel canopy that provides your child with great coverage against the sun. In addition, the canopy has a mesh peek-a-boo window with a fabric cover, which is great because it operates silently and allows you to check on your child from time to time without disturbing their sleep.

Easy fold- the Evenflo Pivot Modular stroller can be quickly folded by lifting two levers on both sides of the frame, and it collapses neatly onto its base in half, which is easier to store.

Storage basket– The stroller has a spacious bottom basket that can fit all your essentials or shopping bags.

Accessories- the Evenflo travel system conveniently includes a removable armbar with a snack tray and a parent cup holder. However, you can also buy a child snack tray with a snack cup separately.

Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System How to Wash

The manufacturer recommends wiping down plastic and metal parts using mild soap and water and drying using a soft cloth. The same applies to the harness. You should not soak the harness straps in water or use abrasive detergents or solvents.
