parents say thx^^
  • Large whees
  • Seat space
  • Price point
  • Sporty
  • A very simple build
  • Very polyester-feel fabrics
  • Plastic used
  • Suspension (there’s not much)

A simple pushchair worth pretty much as much money as it costs. Nothing special but it works well for the price.

  • lays mostly flat when reclined
  • good price point
  • large basket
  • easy to maneuver over any terrain (forest, cobblestones, up/ down stairs)
  • easy-ish to fold up
  • stays folded securely
  • very comfortable for a tall / older child (113cm / 19kg) with plenty room to grow!
  • comfortable for longer rides
  • comfortable for the person pushing / navigating
  • you need to be relatively strong when pushing an older child on extremely sloped areas so that it doesn't tip
  • inner tubes have popped twice in less than 1 year
  • bulky when folded (expected)
  • pretty heavy (expected)

This stroller has been wonderful for our tall toddler to take long walks over multiple terrains. The adjustable handlebar has also been wonderful since I'm on the shorter side, and my husband is VERY tall. Our son no longer naps, but it lays pretty flat with a large hood, so he can lay comfortably when he wants to rest.

It doesn't sit straight up, but that's never been a problem for him. It folds with a few steps, but it's very simple. The basket at the bottom is quite large! We have had the wheels pop twice, and it was loud, and we were a bit stranded until we could get home. However, I think it was due to being OVER inflated and / or drastic temperature changes. Otherwise, we have no complaints. It's a bit bulky when folded, but all strollers of this type seem to be. We love that it stands on its own when folded.

  • Price point
  • Large wheels for bad terrain conditions
  • Lie-flat seat
  • Adjustable handlebar
  • Very simple
  • Thin, "plastic-y" fabrics
  • Foam-covered handlebar
  • No decelaration brake
  • Plastics feel low quality
  • Bulky (but that's to be expected with a jogger)

For the price, good. Not much in terms of suspension, and the textiles are very much showing the price tag of the pushchair. I wouldn't really run with it, I'd miss a handbrake, but for our village terrain and our 2.5yo toddler, good enough.

Wheels could be better quality

I've got a puncture on or 2nd walk. Wheels could be better quality.

  • simple
  • practical
  • spacious
  • simple might be a negatove for some
  • leg rest is short

Simple, practical, spacious. We're satisfied.

  • large wheels will go over any terrain
  • steering - it is easy to push and sits well on the surface (stability)
  • ventilation peek-a-boo window on the canopy
  • even if not the smallest, the folded package fits a mid-size car boot
  • can be jogged with occasionally
  • PLASTICS (cheap)
  • brake doesn't work (often) and the plastic inside breaks or gets deformed with use
  • the pushchair scratches very easily
  • loose feeling of the joints (and it gets worse with time)
  • two-hands incline (strap system)

We used it as a budget three-wheeler for any road or terrain we encountered (and we tried it all, from the beach to forest trails). The folding is easy just not the smallest - but good overall. You do feel the price on the pushchair - the plastics scratch, the plastics around the brake break, and the pushchair gets a very loose feel over time. The price-performance value is good, but yes, you do feel the price VERY MUCH.

The price is simply unbeatable

4
  • value for money
  • long frame not suitable fr public transport or airports (when traveling with it, you need to remove the wheels to fit the scanner)

A very nice value for the price. Just too long for any public transport. For outside adventures, the price is simply unbeatable.

Happy with it

4
  • drives easy
  • goes over any bump or hole
  • well-made for that money
  • rain cover included
  • heavy to load in and out of the car
  • bulky
  • apron sold separately

Happy with the stroller.
