Ark know it's the details that matter. That's why the Ark travel system has:
- Soft, natural fabrics next to baby’s skin in both the carrycot and the seat.
- A unique ventilation system (including a thermometer in the carrycot) so you can keep the environment just right for your baby.
- All-round suspension, which is responsive even with a tiny new-born onboard.
- A narrow footprint (58cm), compact fold and collapsible carrycot for easy transportation and storage.
- Height-adjustable handle that is suitable for even the tallest of parents, a large fabric, shopping basket and a rain cover which stores away in the hood.
The Ark Carry Cot provides optimum lie-flat comfort for your newborn baby until they can push up on all fours or sit unaided, usually around the age of 6 months. It has a few special features that as a parent, we think you’ll appreciate.
- Air ventilation system - The unique ventilation system aids movement of air through the carry cot
and seat, helping to keep baby cool and comfortable even in hot
weather. Simply roll up the flaps on the head and foot end of the carry
cot and secure in place with the toggle and loop to allow the air to
flow while you push your baby along. There’s also a large ventilation
panel in the hood, doubling up as a viewing window.
- Mattress with natural wool layering - 100% pure cotton, chemical-free outer cover. We don’t think you should have to pay extra for an upgrade to premium comfort and safety, so Ark provides it as standard*.
*We recommend always using the Ark Mattress Protector in conjunction
with your carry cot mattress, to keep it clean and protected. The
Mattress Protector is made from durable herringbone cotton, it provides a
fully waterproof outer layer and is machine washable. The mattress is
not washable due to the real wool content.
- Colour-coded temperature gauge - A clever little display pocket houses a removable temperature gauge so you can keep a close eye on your baby’s environment and be prompted to open the ventilation panels when it gets too hot.
- Zip-out cotton liner - The Ark carry cot is lined with a soft-touch, durable-weave herringbone cotton that can be easily removed for machine washing as required*.
*Because our natural fabrics are untreated and chemical-free they may be more inclined to fade in direct sunlight, so please remember to dry indoors after washing.
- The seat unit replaces the carry cot when your baby is able to push up on all fours or sit unaided, usually around 6 months. It will hold your child all the way through to their pre-school year up to 15kg.
- Reversible facing pushchair - The seat unit can be positioned in both parent and world-facing aspects.
- Reclining seat unit - The seat has three recline positions when facing either direction: upright, relaxed and lie-flat. Just depress the large circular button on either side of the seat to set it to your desired position.
- Extendable hood - The Ark Hood is made for use on both your carry cot and seat and zips on and off to be easily transferred between the two elements. It has a viewing window that doubles up as an additional ventilation panel and can be held shut or partially open by hidden magnets or secured fully open with a toggle and loop. The hood has a hidden zip pocket that has been cleverly designed for storage of your rain cover, so it’s conveniently tucked away and always there when you need it, saving all-important space in your shopping basket for other essentials.
- UPF50+ Sunshade - The extendable hood has a convenient, tuck-away UPF
50+ sunshade to give your baby extra protection on sunny days from the
sun’s harmful rays.
- Ventilation panels - Arks clever temperature regulating features continue in the seat unit
with side panels that open and magnetise to the back, allowing air to
circulate and keep your little one cooler on a hot day. Simply tuck the
panels back in when they’re not required.
- Adjustable foot rest - The foot rest is adjustable to accommodate little growing legs. It can
also be adjusted when the frame is folded to make it more compact.
- 5-point safety harness - The easy to use 5-point harness is adjustable to secure your child safely as they travel; it can be positioned at three different heights to accommodate them as they grow. The coordinating padded harness covers make sure your little one is safe and comfortable at all times.
- Pivoting bumper bar - The removable bumper bar swivels for one-handed
convenience and is finished with hand-stitched, perforated vegan-leather
– cool and comfortable to the touch.
- Height adjustable handle bar - The hand-stitched, PU leather handlebar
is height adjustable with 3 different positions, making the Ark easy to
push no matter how tall you are.
- Large shopping basket - The shopping basket has an extra-large capacity with easy access. It has
a waterproof base so it wont soak up moisture from puddles. Inside
there is an elasticated pocket to tuck away your rain cover or jacket,
leaving oodles of room for shopping or other necessities in the main
- Zipped pocket & pouch - There is a convenient zip pocket on the back of the shopping basket.
Hidden inside is a removable zipped pouch that is held in place by a
Velcro strip. This is ideal for keeping rubbish or dirty items separate
from everything else. We’ve really thought of everything.
- Hyper-responsive hidden suspension - Super-sensitive springs are located inside the pushchair frame that activates to deliver effective suspension when there is little or no load in the travel system: perfect protection for your tiny newborn.
- Shock absorbent honeycomb wheels - As a child grows and gets heavier, the honeycomb wheels have been
cleverly designed to deliver two layers of suspension as they compress
and absorb shock on impact.
- Durable puncture proof wheels - Punctures are a thing of the past with the patented Ark wheels. They
are made from a type of moulded, long-life, TPU, which has some very
impressive characteristics including elasticity, transparency, and
resistance to oil, grease and abrasion. All this means the wheels will
stay looking new for longer, be easier to clean, and they really can
give a smoother ride.
- One-hand fold - The Ark frame is made of powder-coated aluminium. It’s among the lightest of travel systems around and it has an easy, genuinely grandparent-proof, one-hand fold mechanism. A simple flip-over lock on one side of the frame means that you can securely fold down and stand your pushchair up and out of the way when you’re in a café or restaurant. It can be folded down with the seat still attached in world-facing mode, otherwise the seat needs to be removed before folding the frame.
- Seat pad - The Ark seat pad comes as standard in your colour pack and is removable for machine washing. It provides comfortable cushioning, and has a chemical-free cotton cover.
- Lockable front wheels - There is a front castor lock, on the two forward wheels for more uneven terrain like sand along with a flip flop and high heel proof, stop & go brake foot pedal.
