New parents need all the help they can get, especially when schlepping a young one around town. The sleek e-PRIAM ($1,400), by German stroller stalwart Cybex, gives parents an extra boost with an electric motor discreetly connected to the rear wheels. “It’s really built for urban living,” explains Dave Taylor, deputy CEO of Cybex America—be it for conquering San Francisco’s hills, Boston’s cobblestone streets or Miami’s sandy beaches. Along with the uphill assist, the e-PRIAM features innovative handlebar smart sensors that detect downhill slopes and apply the brakes accordingly, ensuring the stroller is as safe as it is strain-saving. And with its 28-mile peak battery life, the e-PRIAM can cover serious ground between charges. —J.R. Sullivan
