Joie Mytrax

The padded, huge-canopied large-wheeler
.eli
see 18 parent reviews

The Joie Mytrax is a higher model based on the Joie Litetrax 4 Air. Th Mytrax is a stroller featuring all-terrain wheels equipped with suspension which can handle even a rougher terrain. Another advantage is a height adjustable handlebar to suit all parents. The Mytrax is relatively lightweight. You can fold it one-handedly by lifting the strap on the seat.

The upgraded hood is ventilated and extendable by unzipping. Another addition is the melange fabrics available in new colors. The non-reversible seat can be reclined fully, sufficient even for babies from birth. You can also place the baby into a car seat or a carrycot that has to be purchased separately. Compared to the Litetrax strollers, the Mytrax offers a possibility to take the seat off the chassis completely, so the carrycot or the car seat can be added to the bare chassis without the seat present.

parents say thx^^
  • folded and unfolded in seconds
  • the telescopic handle with height adjustment was one huge plus for us, both my partner and I very much welcomed this feature
  • full recline
  • large basket
  • two legrest positions
  • extended canopy
  • I really appreciate the rear inflatable wheels
  • a drink holder and a rain cover were available to purchase
  • unfortunately the front wheels stumble slightly on uneven surfaces, nothing terrible
  • you have to buy the footmuff separately

We are very happy with the pushchair. The only minus it has for us is the front wheels stumbling on uneven surfaces, but once you drive on flat ground you don't know about them at all. The Joie itself is a very nice pushchair, we have the Pavement variant and couldn't have chosen better - the colour is exactly what I expected it to be - a lovely rich dark grey.

  • Simplicity and elegance
  • Inflatable wheels
  • Load capacity
  • Large canopy
  • Quick folding
  • None at all

Light, compact and perfect...

We needed a pushchair that had a high load capacity, was easy to store in the car, and also had an eye-catching look. The Joie Mytrax delivered on all that.

Simple and elegant in appearance. Convenient one-touch folding. Carrying capacity like few sports cars. And the inflatable wheels as a bonus, so we have no problem on any accessible terrain.

Not at all unhappy

4

After switching my larger travel system for the Joie Mytrax pushchair, I am not at all unhappy, just feel that the storage basket is smaller and not as accessible as what I was used to. I can't fault the pushchair, though, as most baskets were like that on this type of pushchair (even with other brands).

A great pushchair

4

A great pushchair. I'd recommend it happily :)

  • high weight capacity
  • nice wheels
  • high weight
  • not spacious enough for older toddlers
  • the central joints are very strained when the pushchair is folded
  • starts to rattle over time

It is quite small, given its weight capacity of 30 kg.

  • Very compact
  • XXL canopy with a sun visor!
  • Telescoping handlebar
  • Good even for harsh terrain
  • Cup Holder
  • I miss an apron
  • No sold-separately accessories like the canopy, the seat upholstery, a handlebar/bumper bar covers or harness padding

I only changed it (for a reversible one) because my son needed to see me.

The seat space could be larger; otherwise, I find it spacious and comfortable enough. Good even for winter clothing plus a footmuff.

It's a very good, beautiful pushchair. That HUGE canopy is really luxurious. And the handlebar that telescopes out is a big plus. But you always will find something negative (on any pushchair) - for me it's the weight, and also the fact that you cannot buy a spare canopy or upholstery just so when you need it. Even though the canopy is UPF50+ protective, it fades in the sun - which is a shame, because otherwise it's very nice, and you can even remove it for washing!

The best pushchair I ever had

The best pushchair I ever had. 😊

Really a great stroller

4
  • lightweight
  • compact
  • comfortable
  • the bumper bar is a bit difficult to remove and not gate-opening

The Joie Mytrax is really a great stroller.

Ok even on worse terrain

4
  • folding system and folded size
  • XXL canopy
  • lay-flat
  • waterproof fabrics
  • all-wheel suspension
  • adjustable handlebar
  • nice design
  • rattling front wheels - you need to put a rubber in between the joint
  • bulky rain cover - but it's better when you take out its reinforcement

Since we go everywhere with our car, we looked for a pushchair that will fit nicely in ours - and the Mytrax did check this box. It folds nice and flat. I also love the waterproof fabrics - they protect well, combined with the canopy size, even when it starts raining and you don't have your rain cover with you. The only downside would be those rattling front wheels - but we put rubber in the joints, and it's much better. Otherwise, the pushchair is ok even on worse terrain - we tried a field, grass, all was fine...

I would only reproach the higher weight

5

Lightweight, good to push about. Easy folding. Spacious. Practical canopy. We're happy with it.

I would only reproach the higher weight - it could be lighter, but it's not terrible.

Your questions about the Joie Mytrax

1)

Hi there,

Can I remove the hood to wash in a washing machine? X

Hey there, Gemma,

I wouldn't really do it. It might be possible with a bit (or a lot) of fiddling with the connections but really, washing a (dark, but any, to be honest) canopy in the washing machine asks fr the canopy to either be torn, to not be able to put it back in the wires, or to fade the color. I would hand-clean it only - I mean, I cleaned almost anything with Waterwipes, but if too dirty to clean with wet wipes, I'd use a foaming agent and a mild brush and a wet + dry cloth.

Here's a stroller cleaning and maintenance guide to help you out with quite a few tips and tricks as to how to clean your pushchair without damaging it.

Hi, will the Joie Litetrax wheels fit on my Joie Mytrax? I don’t find that the terrain wheels are good enough.

Hello!

I will disappoint you, but no, you won't fit the Joie Litetrax wheels on the Mytrax comfortably. They are smaller, and the ride would be affected, so you won't help yourself much. The front wheels do have the same housing design, the rear wheels are, however, narrower, and I wouldn't recommend trying to fit them. An easier way is to simply swat the pushchair - try a classified ad, somebody might be willing to change a Litetrax for a Mytrax ;-)

To add to it, the Litetrax wheels also do get noisy in the front, if that is your problem with the Mytrax wheels. If so, get two sealing rubbers and put them in the place where the front wheel is connected to the pushchair frame - it might help.

Sorry I didn't help more, but even the manufacturer doesn't state any compatibility, meaning even if you pushed them in somehow, you might end up with even worse driving and a possibility of a wheel falling down at any moment...

...and I would also ask you to leave a review for the Joie Mytrax you own - I mean, I bet other parents will really appreciate an opinion on why are the Mytrax wheels not that great... Thank you 🙏
