Seems kind of pumpkiny to take something made out of an exceptionally light weight material like carbon fiber and cover it up with something really heavy like leather. Why even bother with the carbon fiber?

Holy crap... You can't get this for under $600 (at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FAMZ30?linkCode=xm2&tag=invihand-20). If you're looking for a fancy, high-end gift for a new dad, this would fit the bill

We have a similar Maclaren and use it all the time. It folds conveniently and is a good compromise between size and function.

I do wish it had a cupholder, but the rear pouch can serve as one in a pinch.

Is the "carbon fiber skin" just a cosmetic treatment over the stock metal frame or is it structural?

We have a Maclaren Techno and love it. They make amazing strollers. Fold down tiny, light weight, and are a breeze to push.

Does anyone know the weight limit for this particular model?

WHOA!!! This is the best deal I've ever seen on the leather Maclaren... ANYWHERE!!!!

We own (And have loved) our leather Mac for almost 3 years and paid almost 4 times the price (And at the time I thought I was getting a good deal!!)

And before anyone starts a rant on "Why would anyone put a baby in a leather stroller..." let me just tell you this is bar none, the best winter time stroller you could ask for!(Especially for older kids) The child's body temperature actually helps generate heat through the leather making it uber cozy!!

Oh woot, this is a stellar deal! WTG!

Hope Leslie is right about the leather making it a good winter stroller. Can the seat cover be changed, anyone?

I echo what everyone else is saying - Maclaren strollers are top notch and built to last. I have one that is 8 years old and it looks as good as the day I bought it. They are lightweight and easy to open and close. This is an spectacular deal, too. Although my Maclaren stroller is not leather, my child's carseat was and we loved it! No problems with it getting too hot or cold and it still looked great by the time he outgrew it.

If I hadn't recently purchased an umbrella stroller I would be all over this!

Wow, I've never been a first sucker (pats self on back) but I couldn't pass this one up even though we don't need it now.

Is the leather easy to clean? (I noticed a couple of wooters mentioned they have a leather model) and lastly, does this come with spinners?

Is anyone having trouble ordering. I'm having trouble logging on and when I push the gold button I get sent to a log on screen again. It's weird.

We have a non-leather MacLaren, and it's everything on it is more or less replaceable. I would assume the same with this one, but I guess we'll find out when we get ours in the mail

EXTREMELY Easy to clean! I use a damp cloth to wipe ours down, and it looks as good as the day we brought it home!

Thanks Leslie for clarifying the leather question!

My eyes are watering at the sexiness of this thing. I need 2 of them, and the little clips to hook them together side by side.

Heehee, I like to think I'm somewhat of a stroller aficionado! ;)

The seat cover isn't "replaceable" per se, (not the way a Bugaboo skin can be removed anyway) BUT it is removable and if you wanted to order another seat insert from Maclaren, you could switch them out from summer-winter. (But it's just pain-in-the-butty enough that it's probably not something you could do on a moments notice, but it'd work seasonally)

A better bet might be to order the Maclaren seat liner to keep the heat of the leather off baby/toddler during the summer months! It's way cheaper than ordering a whole new seat and super easy to pop in the wash!

It does have leg extenders on it....it extends by pulling out tabs on each side of the bottom of the seat. The youtube video gives a good demo.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWTHVXO-PFI&list=PL3B3411371E1CF856&index=3&playnext=6

I can't seem to find this CF6506 model on
http://us.maclarenbaby.com

I even used the website search feature.

Is this an discontinued model? Something that was introduced in 2007 and then subsequently discontinued??

Is this why the price is ridiculously low????

check out reviews at toys r us

leather seems to be an issue a seat cover of some sort would be cool or if we can convert it but the price is unbeatable

I have a question for Maclaren owners. My husband and I are both @ 6 ft tall. Are the handles fairly high or would we need to bend down to reach them?

I'm 5'10" and my husband is 6'1". We ended up going with an Uppababy when we bought our umbrella stroller but we also test-drove Maclaren and Chicco. They all have handles great for tall people, unlike the $20 Babies R Us specials that you have to hunch over to push...

My son isn't quite two weeks yet, but I do have a question. Should you really take your child out in 90 degree heat or 30 degree cold in a stroller or otherwise? I don't want to be outside at those temperatures so I can't seem to think of a reason to take them out either?
Seriously just a question. I'm a new Dad and I need to know these things! I want the best of the best for my little man and this sounds like the best.

When you get past your first summer and winter, believe me, you will want to get out no matter what! Think 4th of July parade, Christmas Tree lighting, etc.

Thank you! Lights at the zoo, camping, trails, etc. That makes sense now.

If I were a manufacturer, the one area of production I would run away from is ANYTHING for toddlers! You can design and test, and STILL some kid will find a way to get his head stuck in it or have it collapse on him! Then there are the recalls and lawsuits. Or, you finally make it just right and your Chinese factory decides to make the paint look nicer by adding a little lead to it! A salute these companies for being brave, but I'm glad it's not me!

It's cosmetic. I design composite products for a living and this would cost in the thousands if it were structrual.

I bought a number of cheap stollers, which kinda worked, then broke, then became landfill clutter. Then I bought a Maclaren, and never had to buy another stroller! It's the ONLY stroller that survived and looks great enough that has been requested as a hand-me-down!
