Stroller suitable for the city and countryside. It is perfectly maneuverable, easy to fold (just pulling the strap) and takes up little space. In case it still wouldn't fit in the boot of a small car, the wheels can be detached with a single click.

The pushchair version has an adjustable leg rest. The bassinet is positioned quite high on it, so there is no need to bend down to the baby. Unfortunately, it is this height of the bassinet that seems to make the stroller not as stable in the field as it is in the sports version. But again, don't imagine tipping the baby out! This is a really slight instability at a high sideways tilt, where other strollers would have a problem. In the pushchair version, the stroller sits on the ground perfectly.

I appreciate the long canopy with ventilation. What bothers me is the poor access to the basket when the pushchair is in the reclined position. The whole stroller is solid, the weight seems maybe high (about 12 kg) on paper, but in real life it is not noticeable at all. The child's lying/sitting area is large, so the child is comfortable there and can fit easily at three years old. I have another, smaller stroller available, but I think the comfort of using this stroller is so high that I wouldn't trade it for another.

The stroller is so versatile - it handles beautifully in the city, and it can go through more difficult terrain (forest paths, dirt roads). However, if your goal is to use the stroller for running, skating, I would choose the Summit model from the same manufacturer - the same if you are going to use the stroller regularly in really challenging terrain.

For me, it's one of the best strollers on the market and you definitely won't make a mistake buying it.

It suited my active mom's needs perfectly. Large canopy, excellent ventilation, it's a three-wheeler, so you need to learn to push it right, of course. The only downside was that a foot cover was missing in the winter, but I solved this with a quality cosytoes I bought separately.

This stroller is perfect for me. It's sturdy, but also very lightweight. The 35kg weight capacity is handy since my daughter is quite big for her age (2yo, 18,5kg), and all the other strollers of this type were too small for her, or with a lower weight capacity.

This stroller is truly spacious - I also love the leg rest, since my DD is also tall. I am also happy with the high-quality materials and the large hood. The full, plastic-covered peek-a-boo window is a plus for me as well because it allows me to have it open even when it's raining (unlike the mesh windows). The magnets holding the window open even when it's windy are an incredible idea too.

The wheels are large. The backrest is easy to recline. I like the handlebar adjustment system very nice too - and that goes for the design of the handle itself as well. A big plus would be the handlebar's pocket, and another for the brake located on the side of the handle, which is so incredibly practical.

The City Elite's price is higher, but it reflects the quality and functional design. I can tell because I went through multiple strollers and prams already. The only downside for me would be the shopping basket, which I find rather small. But it's nothing that would bother me that much. And a slight disadvantage to acknowledge is also the bumper bar that is only optional, meaning you need to pay extra for that. They could have had it included (with the price of the stroller, it seems fair). The bumper bar is adjustable in two height positions.

It's an excellent stroller/jogger for me - to sum it up. I don't think any other model will ever surpass this functionality. 👍
