parents say thx^^

My favorite

  • easy to fold
  • easy manipulation
  • practical drink holder with pouch
  • the basket is nicely accessible and large
  • no reversing of the seat

My favorite pushchair. We have a black one, it washes nicely.

  • Comfortable
  • Positioning with a lever
  • Long canopy
  • Good incline angle when sitting
  • Length
  • Short harness belts

The only thing that bothers me is that it could be bigger and have longer belts. And the wheels rattle a bit. Otherwise in other respects better than the others. Overall, it's great.

  • Compact
  • Lightweight
  • Goes up to a lying down position
  • Large basket
  • Large canopy with ventilation
  • Easy to handle
  • Adjustable leg tilt
  • It is harder to get into the basket when lying down
  • The non-Air version does not have inflatable wheels, the wheels wear down quite quickly

A great stroller in a good price range :)

An excellent pushchair

  • Spacious
  • Large canopy
  • Large basket
  • Easy to handle
  • Nice design
  • None

An excellent pushchair, we were very happy with it :)

Can handle any terrain

  • Comfortable
  • After a while it started to squeak
  • A bit complicated to clean

Very satisfied. Can handle any terrain.

Quality, nice buggy from a proven brand


Good quality, nice buggy from a proven brand.

I regret not having it for my first child

  • light
  • easy to fold
  • doesn't take up much space in the boot of the car
  • easy to drive around town
  • nice look
  • two drink holders
  • small foam wheels will only travel on pavements and paved roads
  • the wind blows through the canopy
  • the apron only covers the bottom of the legs and falls down a lot

I regret not having it for my first child. It's lightweight, folds easily into the car, unfolds easily, doesn't take up much space. The rain cover covers well and has vents that you can't even see. Not for off-road though, the wheels are foam and pretty small. Also, there is a lot of wind that gets inside. It's more of a ride around town kind of thing. The apron seems to me to be useless.

A great pushchair. Goes over any terrain, is easy to use with one hand and my little one loves it.

Happy with it

  • quality
  • support
  • padding
  • compactness
  • low weight
  • parent tray for coffee

We are very happy with it. We use it for a 1yo disabled child, and he's very comfy inside (he cannot sit unassisted and needs support). The buggy folds reasonably small and it is lightweight. The parent tray is 🔝

Very dissapointed


Very dissapointed. It wasn't the cheapest pushchair... The front wheels are brutally noisy on cobblestones, and even started squeaking after winter. The folding system is nice and easy, but it got loose over time and you can feel the frame wobble. I feel like I'll break it when lifting the front wheels to get up a curb. Not recommending it.

Your questions about the Joie Litetrax 4


Hello, I've just bought the Litetrax 4 and I am unable to click the cup holder into place. This makes it extremely unsafe as I don't want to spill hot coffee all over my toddler. Is this a fault with the particular one I've bought or do none of them actually click into place?

Heya, Julie,

I am not sure which cup holder you mean. I know there is a Mytrax / Verstarax cup Holder, and that would not fit well on the Litetrax. Though if you mean the cup holder on the handle = the tray, that should click on the handle well and should not be loose. If it is, it is probably either faulty, or not well mounted.

I can't seem to find a travel bag for the Jolie Litrax 4. Can you recommend one as I am taking it on the plane to Portugal at the end of Sept and need one. I would also like to pop it in a bag before putting it in the boot of the car.


Hi, Roberta,

There is no dedicated bag for the Litetrax, that is why you cannot find one. The best is to find any universal bag, and it is actually rather hard to suggest one without knowing your budget for it - the best ones being Stokke and Bugaboo ones, though also rather large and expensive. Other than that, anything mid-size would work, especially on Amazon you can find multiple stroller travel bags (like this one, could work for you).

Hi there.

Does the Litetrax 4 have an additional toddler seat that is compatible to add for a second child?

Hi there,

No, the Litetrax is not convertible in a double pushchair at all, I'm afraid. Most you can do is to add a sibling board (with or without a seat), though it will lower the comfort of pushing considerably.

Why do my back wheels on my Joie wobble and look like they’re not connected properly to the frame where the wheels are supposed to connect?

Hi, Chantelle,

As for the WHY, I cannot tell you as I am not there and I did not put them on. I also don't know how the stroller was used, what condition it is in, how old it is... but the most probable cause is that the stroller is older and was overstrained with a heavier child/load in the basket regularly, which may cause the wheels to go apart more, and the joints to loosen up. My recommendation is to consult the problem with Joie's or your distributor's (the place you bought your pushchair at) customer service - and show them what exactly is going on, ideally with pictures and more info overall. They will tell you if that is something that can be fixed, or it needs replacing.

What is the distance between the two back wheels of the Joie Litetrax 4 in cm please?

Hi, Emma,

The Litetrax 4 is 60 (more exactly, 59.4 cm) cm wide in the rear part.

Does the joie litetrax stroller has a parent facing option...? Can its handle be moved?

Heya, Anks,

I am sorry to say it cannot. The seat only faces forward, and the handlebar is fixed, it doesn't adjust nor reverse.

Is it suitable to take on a plane?

Heya, Tasha,

If you mean as a carry-on/cabin luggage, then no, it is too large for that. However, almost all airlines allow the so-called baby’s luggage - a (usually free) stroller that they will take from you when boarding and return to you when getting off. Be sure to check your options with your airline. For an ultracompact buggy, though, you’ll need to get something simpler and smaller.

Is it suitable for a newborn?

Hi, Melisa,

Well, it is, and it isn't. Let me explain - with a carrycot and(or a car seat that are attached with adapters, the Litetrax line is fully newborn friendly. Apart from that, the seat reclines pretty much fully, meaning a yes, it is kind of suitable for a newborn, however, it is way too big to be used with a newborn baby. If you want the seat to be used from birth, you need at least a good footmuff or a newborn insert of sorts, or better yet, a universal cocoon/soft cot that inserts in the seat, for your baby to not slide around in there.

Hi Eli,

We are tempted to buy the Joie Litetrax 4 for our 2 years old, but had a few questions:

1. One of the customer reviews said the max height of child is 84 cm and my daughter is already that tall, will she have no room to grow?
2. It closes inside out, does that mean it will get dirty quickly after a off road trip and while putting it in the boot?
3. What are the pros and cons over Mytrax?
4. What's your opinion of the Litetrax 4?


Hi there!

The Litetrax is a bit less roomy, perhaps, than other competing strollers on the market, partially so because of very nice padding making the seat slightly smaller. I wouldn't as it will last only till a child's 84 cm, but not for a 1-meter child either. For a normally-sized kid, it would last until approximately 2.5 to 3 years of age, from my experience. Each mother needs and wants something different, also in terms of the size, so it depends on your preferences and expectations, too.

About the closing, I don't think it is a con. I had strollers opening inwards and outwards, and those opening inwards often made dirty the canopy (by the wheels), while he outward-folding, you just shouldn't put on a dirty floor (but that you shouldn't even with those inwards folding, just saying :-D I see it as an advantage from the practicality of the folding mechanism, to be honest, the outward fold.

The pros of the Litetrax over Mytrax are definitely the weight, which is lower. The cons would be the less terrain-capable wheels that can rattle over bad bumps, the simpler hood, and no adjustable handlebar, which the Mytrax line features. Also, when using a carrycot/car seat, the Mytrax seat can be undressed completely, while the Litetrax's seat stays on.

Lastly, I think it is a nice urban model, comfy for the kid in terms of padding and shading, but yeah, it is not one of the largest, size-wise, and not the slightest eighter. I was considering getting it for my son at one point, but went of the Oyster Zero instead, as it was roomier and lighter (and I was very happy I did). But it definitely is a nice stroller, and if the price is right, it can work very nice for you.

Do you know if Litetrax 4 Dlx (22kg) has a longer seat of this one?

Hi, Nicola,

No, unfortunately, the Joie Litetrax 4 DLX doesn't have a longer sitting/laying surface - it's the same. It only went through a test that confirmed it can hold up to 22 kg safely.

The features of the Litetrax 4 DLX are, otherwise, the same - **what changed (apart from the maximum weight limit) is the telescoping handle added to the DLX and new color additions (as well as a detail of the leatherette handle and the plastic wheels that are in black color).
