A lightweight reversible stroller that lies flat and is compatible with a buggy board

LeeBa • 28 May 2022


I have two kids, a 3 year old and a 6 month old. I use the Joolz Hub (old version) with the Lascal Mini buggy board. I also have the Joolz Aer with the Joolz Aer board. I live in a basement so I need to bump the buggy up and down the stairs.

The Joolz Hub is heavy and I need to disconnect the buggy board every time I go up the stairs because it doesn`t stay up with the string. The Joolz Aer is great in terms of weight however it doesn`t lie flat and I would like to see my baby.

To summarize my query: I need a lightweight stroller that lies flat, can be parent facing and is compatible with a buggy board. I don`t love the Bugaboo Bee so any other suggestions would be great. Thanks!

I really want to help you, but I need to say at the beginning that each stroller is less sturdy the lighter it gets. Reversible pushchairs are always heavier than the world-facing only, and if they get light (like the Cybex Eez S-Twist line), they are actually not the most suitable for a buggy board (or not at all, I would say). The Cybex Mios also doesn’t have a frame that would fit a sibling ride.

Maybe the Valco Ultra Trend that weights about 7 kg coukd work. I would check if you can get the new Recaro Lexa Elite which could also work. And the ABC Design Limbo should be also compatible and light.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
