Hauck Twister

DISCONTINUED in 2016

The Hauck Twister, as its name suggests, is a stroller with a specifically-shaped chassis with a unique 360-degree rotation that allows you to reverse the seat (or other parts) while still attached on the chassis. The reversing mechanism is operated with the handle, which can be lifted and twisted using a lever. The seat is fully reclinable and suitable mostly for younger children. It comes with a bold, shaped seat liner. The stroller is either sold separately, in a travel system with a car seat (Hauck Twister Shop´n Drive), in a 2in1 stroller system with a carrycot (Hauck Twister Duo Set) or, most commonly, in a 3in1 stroller system with a carrycot and a car seat Hauck Twister Trio Set.
