What’s in the box?
The Britax Affinity 2 Chassis comes well packaged and easy to assemble. The frame is fully assembled on delivery and it’s just a matter then of clicking on the seat unit, wheels and bumper bar.
When purchasing the Britax Affinity 2 Chassis you will also need to choose a Britax Affinity 2 Colour Pack. The Colour Pack includes a sun canopy, seat liner, shoulder pads and basket liner. This allows you to build yourself the perfect pushchair.
The seat unit is suitable from 6 months – 17kg (approx. 3 years). It can be used forward or rear facing, and with a button each side, the seat is easily swapped to either direction.
As well as offering different directions of travel, the seat unit has different positionings for both the backrest and footrest. To recline the backrest you simply pull the handle on the back of the seat and move to the desired position, reaching near-flat which is perfect for naps. To adjust the footrest, simply press the buttons on either side and position as required.
A 5-point harness can be easily adjusted for comfort as your baby grows. The harness pads add extra comfort by cushioning your child’s shoulders.
With 14 cm front wheels and 28 cm rear wheels, you get a smooth ride over all terrains. The Britax Affinity 2 Chassis comes with lockable front wheels, which can be fixed into place without disturbing baby.
The brake is a flip-flop friendly lever next to the rear right wheel. It shows green to signal the brake off and red to signal when the brake is on. Its large size is great for ease and durability.
Folding the Britax Affinity 2 is very easy. Simply recline the seat unit as far back as possible and pull the levers on either side of the frame simultaneously. The chassis then effortlessly folds down and the auto-lock clicks into place. Also, it can be stored in a free-standing mode which is great for space saving.
The sun canopy included in the Colour Pack is fully adjustable and features a ventilation window. It’s a great size for shading and protecting your little one from the elements, whilst offering 50+ UPF sun protection. It also has a magnetic peek-a-boo window to keep an eye on your child and for ventilation on hotter days.
The basket is of generous size and can store up to 4kg of shopping and baby essentials.
The handle of the chassis adjusts between 75-107 cm, making pushing comfortable for all users. To adjust the height, simply press the buttons either side of the handle and rotate to the desired height.
The Britax Pushchair Organiser attaches to the handlebar, providing 2 insulated cup holders, 1 large compartment and external pockets for storing essentials. The Britax Nursery Bag is ideal for a days on the go and even includes a changing pad and bottle holder.
The seat unit of the pushchair is suitable from 6 months onward but can be swapped for the Britax Affinity 2 Carrycot to make it suitable from birth.
The material of the carrycot is very soft and offers a complete lie flat position from birth to 9 months. There is also a soft belt that can be attached with Velcro around baby’s tummy to keep them secure.
The outer material can be unzipped offering ventilation on warmer days.
You can transform the Britax Affinity 2 into a travel system with a car seat, such as the Britax Baby Safe i-Size Car Seat. This attaches easily onto the frame without the need for adaptors and is perfect for getting out of your vehicle quickly.
The weight of the complete pushchair is 11kg and can hold a child of up to 17kg. The unfolded dimensions of this stroller are 75 – 107 x 60 x 101 cm. Folded (with seat unit and wheels), it measures 33 x 60 x 66 cm.
For extra comfort and warmth, you can accessorise your stroller with the Britax Affinity Cosytoes which can be used up to 3 years of age. This is a great accessory that can be used during all months, keeping your little one cosy and pushchair clean.
