Baby Jogger City Premier

DISCONTINUED in 2019
see 2 parent reviews

The Baby Jogger City Premier is the successor of the City Versa. It combines the best features of the Versa and the popular City Select. The City Premier is a luxury stroller with a reversible bucket seat. The seat is one of the longest on the market. You can even extend the leg rest for a bigger child. The larger wheels with all-round suspension can handle even rougher terrain. City Premier features a simple folding system that you can operate with one hand. After folding, the full-size stroller becomes surprisingly compact. Using adapters, you can attach a car seat or a carrycot to the stroller. You can choose the narrower foldable Compact carrycot or the sturdy Deluxe carrycot. All accessories, including the bumper bar, must be purchased separately.

parents say thx^^

An excellent stroller

4
  • Suspension on all wheels
  • Large basket
  • Handles any terrain
  • Large canopy
  • Faces both directions
  • Bucket seat
  • No belly bar included

An excellent stroller. If it had a normal lie-flat reclining seat, it would get a 10. But that's purely a matter of opinion. My daughter couldn't stand the seat, my son slept exclusively in the bucket seat unit.

  • large bucket-type seat
  • telescoping handle
  • large all-terrain wheels
  • the seat can face both directions
  • the chassis folds with the seat in any direction
  • a basket with a 10kg weight capacity
  • a seat with a 25kg weight capacity
  • peek-a-boo window in the canopy
  • 3 recline positions
  • leg rest is adjustable

An American pushchair that can go almost through anything. We experienced sand, gravel, off-road, and we managed well - and from the name, one would think it's an urban stroller. It looks great, elegant, nice colors too - nothing too bold. Even is my son's pushchair days are pretty much over, I am not gonna get rid of it - such a gem would be so hard to find in the future with, e.g., a second kid...

Your questions about the Baby Jogger City Premier

1)

What adapter would I need for the City Premier stroller to fit a Chicco car seat?

Hi, Krista,

There is this adapter car seat, however as the Premier is discontinued, you may have problems finding it. Try checking more on Amazon / eBay, or looking in classifieds. Other than with this, you won't be able to attach a Chicco capsule on this frame.

Hello!

I want to know if I can go for runs with this pram? I know it's the Baby Jogger brand, but not sure if it's safe for it. Thanks!

Hi, Cam,

I am sorry but no, despite that brand name (yes, Baby Jogger strollers were at first just three-wheeled joggers and the first joggers in the US), this - and other - four-wheel models from Baby Jogger are NOT suitable for running, jogging, in-line skating or other sports activities. It is even in their manual. They are simply daily strollers.

Read more about the difference in the number of wheels and uses of strollers HERE in this article. And no worries, you're not by far the first making that mistake of assuming a BabyJogger is a jogger. Not anymore, not most of them. For jogging, check, for example, the City Elite 2.

Does the Baby Jogger City Select seat frame fit on the Baby Jogger City Premier chassis?

Hello,

Based on the attachment system, it should, YES.

However, it's a smaller seat frame, and the center of gravity doesn't count on a differently sized seat to be fitted, so it might happen that a different pushchair model's seat might affect the maneuverability of the stroller, ranging from just a little to tipping over in some cases (which means endangering your baby).

In general, then, the Baby Jogger City Select seat should fit on the Premier chassis just fine, but it might be a worse stroller experience. That is why I don't recommend fitting a seat that is not meant for the frame.

Hi :)

Would the Baby Jogger City Versa bassinet fit on the Baby Jogger City Premier?

Thank you 🙏🏻❤️ Eva

Hello, Eva!

Yes, the Baby Jogger City Versa click on attachment system is the same as the City Premier's, so YES, it will fit the Versa and the Premier just fine 😉

5)

Which side of the stroller is left / right? I have to change a rear wheel but don't know which one should I order.

Hello!

The wheels on the right and left are the same, so "any" rear wheel will fit. No need to check the right or left side with the rear wheels.

And to also answer in general, usually one looks at the stroller sides from where he stands when pushing it. So when you're standing behind the pushchair (as to push it), right is what's on your right, and left is on your left.
