Maxi-Cosi Jaya: A very tall parent vs. an ultra-compact stroller

Rhi • 04 Aug 2022


I am very tall and have an Uppababy Vista which I have on the highest handlebar setting. How tall is the handlebar in comparison to other light strollers like the Uppababy Minu or other similar ones?

Thanks Rhi

Hi, Rhi,

The tallest handle setting of the Vista is really tall and almost incomparable to the fixed-handlebar ultracompacts. The Minu and a few ones have it reasonably high but still not high enough, not by far to what you're used to. I will suggest going on Amazon and searching for 'stroller extension handles' and getting one of those to use with an ultracompact - and when getting an ultracompact, try one with at least 105 cm tall handle (definitely not lower than 103 cm).

Your -very berry- Eli.

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