Baby Jogger City Mini GT

DISCONTINUED in 2019
see 5 parent reviews

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT is a higher, all-terrain version of the City Mini. The wheels of the GT are the same size, but with maintenance-free foam-filled tires. They handle the city well and are also great for a little off-roading. The handle of the GT model is adjustable. It also has a central brake.

The even more spacious seat has a weight capacity of up to 29.5 kg. It is comfortable even for a bigger child. For the smallest ones, you can recline the backrest flat. However, the leg rest cannot be adjusted. For a full-featured set from birth, you can buy adapters for the car seat and a carrycot. You can choose the narrower foldable Compact carrycot or the sturdy Deluxe carrycot. The long hood has two peek-a-boo windows. The storage space of the shopping basket is expanded by additional pockets in both the hood on the back of the seat. All accessories, including the bumper bar or snack tray, must be purchased separately.

parents say thx^^
  • tray for the baby
  • large canopy
  • can go over terrain
  • roomy
  • some could miss the legrest adjustment

I bought the GT based on the good reviews and they didn't lie - it's a really a cool stroller; whether for regular strolling or for nature walks. It has an amazing canopy, a pretty large basket, which I really appreciate, and the option to buy a baby tray. It's spacious, doesn't take up the whole suitcase when folded, and the weight is ok for its size too. I for one would recommend it - if the mom can hold out with one pushchair (not like me), it will easily last the rest of the stroller needing time.

I'm not one for writing reviews but this absolute dream machine needs one.

We bought ours 7 years ago and we've used it daily since then.

It's incredibly practical, easy to manoeuvre, light, you can actually jog with it. It's the fastest pram to take down and put in the boot (good for when kids are screaming). The storage space is good.

We've loved the feature (on buggie mode) that drops the back so that kids can sleep, it's been a lifesaver on long day trips, pub trips, and (obviously you're not 'supposed' to use it like this) for when both our 7 and 2-year-olds are both walked out, they comfortably fit in it, and it's still easy to push, albeit a little heavier! On a couple of occasions, we've had 3 kids in it!

Not many surfaces bother it, we often take it for rainy woodland walks. We don't use the rain cover as the big hood provides enough protection.

We haven't looked after it very well, it's been used and abused and we flippin' love this machine. A big clap for the designer(s).

Basically, if you're outdoorsy, a bit messy but practical people, this is the pram for you, you won't regret it.

I owned quite a few strollers, but this one is the best by far. Folding/unfolding with only one hand, totally easy to drive or use its features, will go over absolutely anything, even really bad roads... I absolutely adore it. This is the only stroller I didn't sell after some time and still keep at home even if I don't plan on having more children 😅

Even without the leg rest adjustment, a 4yo can comfortably nap inside. I mean, the leg rest incline of the second generation is certainly an advantage, but we're not missing it.

  • Spacious
  • Great to push
  • Large canopy
  • Lightweight
  • No real leg rest adjustment

An excellent stroller. Literally, the only downside is the missing leg rest adjustment.

  • Foldability
  • Maneuverability
  • Weight
  • Spaciousness
  • Large canopy - fully covering the child
  • No leg rest adjustment (we had one made, so it fixes it up through the bumper bar)

A perfect stroller that is lightweight, compact, sturdy, and it's good for napping even for a four-year-old. The high-quality wheels go through EVERYTHING - even snow.

If you often go to the mountains or so, I would probably opt for its brother - the City Elite - that is a bit larger after folding. Which was an important factor for us - so we went for the City Mini GT that is super flat when folded, meaning we can put it behind the driver's seat in our car.

Your questions about the Baby Jogger City Mini GT

1)

I was wondering if the back rest goes totally upright?

Hi, Laura,

No, almost no lighter pushchair will have its back Totally, and by totally I assume 90 degrees straight seatback. It is not physically possible to make so that it would be also stable, compact / foldable right, etc. This one is not too slanted, but it is certainly not very very upright. The angle could be about 100 degrees when you pull the strap as much as you can.

P.S. Really, very few strollers have a totally upright seat, if any. From those, it is usually the reversible stroller models that also have a smaller seat space and are bulkier overall.

I'm looking at a Baby Jogger for a trip to Disneyland for my 4-year-old granddaughter. I was wondering if you knew the seat back length to see if she is too tall for it.

Thanks, Pippa

Hi there, Pippa,

The seatback length is 53.5 cm, we actually have this in the Specifications, you only need to click on the Seat Unit part to open that part up ;-) Overall, btw, the stroller is super roomy even for taller/larger toddlers, as there is then quite a lot of space to the canopy.

How do I get a spare carrycot adapter for the City Mini 2 Double pushchair?

Hello, Onyah,

We talk about spare and replacement parts here, in this article, and I recommend reading it. And to get those adapters, the best way is to contact a distributor/sller of that brand around you, and/or directly the customer service of Baby Jogger in your country.
