Smooth-riding single stroller
May 5, 2015
This stroller is a dream to push and handles well even on bumpy sidewalks/streets and (with a little more effort) on grass. I love the ability to turn the seat to face forward or backward, and the basket underneath is roomy and easy to access, though I have not truly put it to the test with anything very big or heavy. The canopy truly is huge (nice when the seat is reclined more), and the magnetic peek-a-boo flaps are awesome!
The fold is OK. I'm still getting used to doing it, and I think it would be hard to do while holding a child. It seems like any stroller at this level of quality and features is going to have that kind of issue, though. They're just not lightweight and small. My husband is 6'6" and getting a stroller with a higher-than-normal handlebar was a must. I wish the handlebar was telescoping rather than rotating, but it does work for him. However, it doesn't seem like it'd work well for either of us to push it comfortably if the BJ glider board were attached in the back, which had been a thought of mine if we at some point have two children.
The major cons I have with this stroller are the inability to turn it into a double (like the City Select), its inability to stand upright when folded, and the fact that all the accessories are sold extra and aren't particularly cheap. I knew all those things when I bought it, though.
We got this stroller on a huge sale and will certainly enjoy it in the coming years. My son is six months and has TONS of room to grow in this seat, even if he takes after his dad in height.
Pros:quality, reversible seat, smooth ride (suspension), adjustable handlebar height, huge canopy with magnetic peek-a-boo flaps, easy access to basket
Cons:not able to convert for two seats, pricy accessories, weight, not able to stand upright on its own when folded
Best Uses:neighborhood, mall, park
