What is the diameter of Lexa Elite wheels (couldn't find it in specs)? I'm wondering because they seem perfect for me (reversible seat, good ventilation, xxl roof, peekabo window, compact and light), but the wheels look small and my everyday walks include large stretches of gravel and I'm wondering if my 3 month old would be comfortable in this stroller going over gravel.

Thank you!

Hiya, Meri,

They are not in the specifications, you are right, as the manufacturer doesn't state their size and I did not yet have a chance to measure them. If an educated guess would help you, however, the wheels seem to be about 15 cm in diameter to me.

YOu will definitely struggle and feel the stroller shaking over gravel, but you will feel that with pretty much any stroller except for those with large (30+ cm) fixed wheels. You can, however, manage it if not going hours and hours over it. Gravel, sand and snow are, by definition, strollers' wheels enemies.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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