Hartan VIP XL

DISCONTINUED in 2015
see 2 parent reviews

The Hartan VIP XL is a full-sized stroller with a possibility to create a stroller system. The chassis with a low center of gravity offers a rather compact fold. After the redesign of the seat covers, the VIP XL has been replaced by the VIP GT.

The smooth ride of the stroller is ensured by the elaborate suspension system with an option to regulate the level of shock-absorbing. The front swivel wheels are smaller and suitable for city walks, but they can handle the occasional terrain use. The Wippmatic brake is activated by pushing the red button and released by pushing the green one. The brake can be complemented with the optional decelerative handbrake. Another option to choose from when buying the stroller is a leather-covered handlebar.

The seat unit is softly padded with a thermoinsulative type of fabric which is also fully washable. The seat unit can be reclined flat. It is also possible to extend the leg rest which will increase the total length of the seat. The robust hood featuring a pocket will protect your child against the elements. There is also a ventilation part convenient during hot days. You can create a stroller system suitable from birth by purchasing either one of two carrycots inserted in the seat - the Soft, transformable into a footmuff, or the reinforced Kombi - or with the hard, foldable carrycot Falt. Using adapters, you can also attach a car seat. The VIP XL was also released in a special s.Oliver edition.

parents say thx^^

Very heavy and impractical

2
  • Handbrake
  • Heavy
  • Bad manipulation

We had it for a short time and we passed it on right away. It is very heavy and impractical.

I loved this pram

5
  • easy to steer
  • good folding system
  • superb quality
  • none for me

I loved this pram. I had the Bellybutton edition - blue & white combination that I sold with a heavy heart after a year and a half of everyday use.
