Joie Chrome DLX

The huge-basketed, L-shaped-frame, newborn-ready urban system
.eli
see 2 parent reviews

The Joie Chrome DLX is a higher, deluxe version of the Joie Chrome featuring new, modern melange fabrics. This variable stroller can be used from birth. Compared to the basic version, the weight capacity was increased. The L-shaped chassis can handle the city as well as a slightly challenging terrain. Its shape makes the spacious basket easily accessible. The DLX's wheels are larger and equipped with a softer suspension with visible rear springs to provide a smoother ride. Foam-filled tires replaced the former rear solid wheels. The enlarged seat comes with a backrest offering 5 various recline positions including flat. You can also lift the leg rest. When the sun is too sharp, the hood can be extended to an XXL size. The stroller offers a rather compact fold even with the seat positioned in whatever direction. Once folded, you can pull the stroller behind you like luggage. The DLX is usually available in a stroller system, which can also be created from the stroller itself by purchasing an optional carrycot and/or a car seat.

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • comfy seat
  • large canopy coverage
  • leg rest
  • heavy
  • bulky
  • could be more spacious

Very very comfy just we outgrew it quickly. It's also quite heavy to load and unload in and out of the car trunk.

I was incredibly happy to use it

  • Reversible seat
  • We grew up from the seat quite quickly

A great pram, I was incredibly happy to use it.

Your questions about the Joie Chrome DLX

1)

Is the folded measurements just the base folded or with the chair on please?

Hello, Lauren,

Thank you for this question!

The folded dimensions are for the whole thing - the stroller chassis plus the seat unit. If the measurement is given for the frame only, we specify that in the line - otherwise, we always try to state the dimensions of the folded stroller WITH the seat (if applicable).

Hi,

Would a carrycot for a Chrome DLX also fit a Joie Chrome?

Hello, Lauren,

Yes, the Joie Chrome DLX bassinet is compatible with the Joie Chrome; the attachment system is the same.

Hi Eli,

We've been given a second hand Joie 360 Spin car seat. We already use the Joie Chrome DLX with an iLevel car seat but wondering if the 360 Spin would fit the stroller? Our baby is 6 months old.

Thank you for your help! Can't find this information anywhere online.
Mr & Mrs Moore, Glasgow

Hello, there!

So, the answer is no here, Unlike the i-Level capsule, the Joie 360 Spin is not a car seat that can go on (any) stroller - this is only for the car. It doesn't even feature a carry handle because of that.

So I would most certainly keep your i-Level for now, and when your little one is around 10-14 months old, you'll smoothly pass on to the 360 Spin and won't use your stroller as a travel system anymore... this is only natural.

Hope I helped clearing this up! I would most appreciate you guys helping other parents by leaving a short review of the stroller you own, the Joie Chrome DLX, here, please. You'll help many other parents with their choice thanks to your experience.

Thank you so much, and stay safe!

Is this stroller ok for all terrain surfaces, and is the weight capacity of up to 22 kg?

Hiya, Melinda,

The maximum weight capacity of the Joie Chrome DLX is actually 17.5 kg in the seat. That being said, the seat is on the shorter side and is best suited for children up to about 2 years of age, 2.5yo if the child is smaller for its age. A maximum weight limit is one thing, but the real seat's spaciousness is something else.

To the wheels' all-terrain capacity, the Chrome DLX is certainly not an all-terrain stroller in my eyes. It does get noisy/rattly on bumps and holes, and the front wheels are rather small. Parents also report the frame not being too sturdy. I would suggest the Joie Chrome mostly for urban surfaces with only a little harsher terrain ride if absolutely necessary.

Just FYI: I already answered this question about the Joie Chrome DLX here for more information and points of view. 😉

Hi, what is the height from the ground to the push bar setting on lowest?

Hello, Madalina,

The lowest handle height of the Chrome DLX is 92 cm. If you open the stroller specs here on strollberry, it's written there as well 😊

Is the car seat an Isofix one?

Hello, Donna,

The Joie Chrome DLX is compatible with many, not only one car seat. From Joie car seat, all newer car seats available are compatible with an Isofix base, so, YES. If pairing it with a different car seat - the Joie Chrome being compatible also with Maxi-Cosi, Cybex, Kiddy, Recaro, and other car seats - you will always have to check each car seat type, but most good brands do offer Isofix base possibility for their 0+ car seat capsules.

Can I attach a bumper bar if the pram which I have doesn’t have one?

Hello, Sorina,

This depends. I mean - is it a model that never had it, and there are no holes to click the belly bar into? If it's so, you can only attach something universally fitting - fabric-based (or have a tailor make you one).

Something like this:

If you don't have it, but it seems to be there in the past - there are attachment points, holes on the side of the seat - then you can attach one, given you'll get a hold of a fitting, Joie Chrome one. You can either check classifieds to dee if someone doesn't sell their pram for parts - or contact the distributors around you. You can try the manufacturer directly - I mean the customer service at the Joie brand.
