The Joolz Hub (“Hello Urban Beauty”) is a compact urban high-end and the first Joolz model with a conventional, non-bucket type of seat unit. It was launched in 2018.

The stroller features a chassis similar to the bigger Day 2, but 25% more compact and lighter. The shopping basket also has a similar shape and can be folded down for better access. The adjustable handlebar features integrated bag holders. You can fold the stroller even with the seat attached in whatever direction as it can be folded. Once folded, you can carry the HUB using a shoulder strap. The seat can be reclined flat, suitable from birth. The extra padded safety belts are a stay-open style, which makes putting the child into the seat much easier. The seat comes with a soft, washable seat liner. The large hood provides a lot of shade and can even be extended by unzipping. With the seat in the upright sitting position, the hood provides a complete coverage.

For the comfort of a newborn, an optional Hub Cocoon featuring a mattress, an apron, and a ventilation system is available. Side panels are present for extra safety in case your baby is not ready for an apron yet. To create a full-featured stroller system, you can additionally purchase an optional carrycot and/or a car seat, or buy the stroller directly in a complete set. There is also a wide choice of accessories including an adjustable child tray.

Urban, but handles the outdoors too

4

Compact, easy to use, handy. Urban, but handles the outdoors too 👌 We started with the Hub with a bassinet and since we switched to the seat, the only one minus I've found is that I'm missing the sunvisor that's on the deep bassinet. The seat does have such an extendable canopy, but when you unzip it, there is ventilation (mesh) - not much for winter.

My daughter is happy in it

  • Cocoon can be purchased optionally
  • also usable in winter

A very light, nice stroller. My daughter is happy in it. Excellent as a city stroller.

Exact type: Joolz Hub Stunning Silver.

A great choice for the price

  • Superb suspension
  • Easy folding
  • The stroller is lightweight AND compact
  • Handles well with one hand
  • Compact dimensions before and after folding
  • Handle that rotates
  • Hinged basket
  • Seat can be reversed in both directions
  • Has a strap, can be conveniently carried when folded
  • Thin canopy
  • Rain cover needs to be bought separately

The Joolz Hub is a very good and handy stroller, one of my favorites (we've had several strollers). I would like to praise especially the clever chassis, which has an awesome central suspension for a more comfortable ride. I really enjoy walking with this stroller. I think it's great for travel too - small, handy, folds up nicely. I like the hinge on the shopping basket which makes the cart more accessible. The basket is medium size - not quite large, but already we had a smaller one.

The stroller has been through both snow and uneven surfaces, broken roads. On cobblestones or broken roads the front wheels can knock, which didn't bother me that much as many other strollers make much worse noises. Otherwise the stroller goes smoothly, easily and quietly. The suspension makes the stroller feel lighter than other strollers with nearly the same weight. So the stroller is easy to lift with one hand - whether into a lift or onto a curb.

The seat is long, but a bit narrower - since it is a smaller travel version of the Joolz Day and it is also a reversible stroller, this is fine. However, if there's one thing they could have tweaked in the Joolz, it's definitely the canopy. It's very thin - it flies like a flag in the wind. I find the seat a bit hard, but a stroller liner will solve that.

Overall, I rate the stroller very positively and think it's a great choice for the price.

  • Not for more than 2 years of use

Nice companion. My son rode in it from about 8,5m to 2 years. He always slept happily there.

  • Large basket
  • Modern design
  • Lies flat
  • Parent and world facing
  • Sits completely upright
  • Smooth push
  • On the heavy side
  • Expensive
  • Tricky folding
  • Fiddly straps

I bought the Joolz Hub for my first baby. Originally I had loved the design so that was why I bought it.

The stroller has lots of advantages - it pushes very smoothly, the hood provides good coverage, the basket is large and deep with lots of space for shopping and it is strong and sturdy.

However, maybe it is because my child is tall, but as soon as he reached around 18 months old, he totally outgrew the buggy. He looked very wrong in it - his feet were dangling out. I had to buy a second stroller and put it away for my next baby.

Now I use it for my second with a Lascal buggy board (Mini). I am happy with it, it still works well, but I find the fold is difficult so I avoid using taxis with this buggy. Instead, when travelling I use my Joolz Aer.

An excellent city stroller

5
  • easy handling
  • excellent folding
  • takes up little space when folded

An excellent city stroller, but usable just fine off-road as well. Small, practical, completely easy to operate with one hand.

  • easy steering
  • awesome filding
  • compact when folded

An excellent urban pushchair that can go over some terrain as well. Small, practical, very easy to push even with only one hand.

The best pram I had

5
  • Low weight
  • Foldability
  • Awesome ride even on bumpy roads 👍
  • Large basket
  • Nothing really - perhaps the mesh in the sunhood is a bit unlucky solution, otherwise I am thrilled about this one

The best pram I had - and I had tens of prams ❤️

  • It doesn't take up much space
  • The design is very nice
  • Very small
  • Colours tend to fade
  • The basket on the bottom of the stroller is veeeeeery small
  • Canopy unstable, not solid

For me, the stroller is good in that it is smaller and fits everywhere, whether elevator or car.. does not take up much space. But as for the terrain, it's a horror, the little one was terribly shaken in it - every hole, every rock...
It's a stroller for smaller children, so it's not up to three years old... nor under 2 years.

My son would be in it till he was 1,5 years old max. But design-wise, the stroller is gorgeous... Otherwise, nothing else. 🙈

Lightweight puschair with suspension

  • low weight

  • not roomy
  • I was afraid my son will fall out at first

A very good, lightweight puschair with suspension.

Your questions about the Joolz Hub

1)

Can the Joolz Hub + go as carry-on luggage on an airplane?
Also is there a footmuff that fits it?

Nessa

Hi, Nessa,

No, the folded size of the Joolz Hub does not fit the cabin luggage requirement. It's compact FOR A REVERSIBLE STROLLER, but not that compact as the mini travel ultra-compact buggies. If needing an airplane carry-on buggy from Joolz, you'll need to consider the Joolz Aer.

Here's also our 2021 top ultracompact strollers article to find inspiration in the world of cabin-sized strollers.

Do bear in mind no reversible stroller will actually fit the ultracompact stroller folded size. Instead, you CAN take a larger stroller on board, but they will take it from you during boarding to store, and return it to you when getting off.

Footmuff-wise, most universal cosytoes will fit the Hub. As a smaller reversible stroller, best are those that are not overly fluffy. For example, the Lodger Bunker is a very popular choice that will fit very well and not take up too much space in the seat. The original Joolz footmuff will fit great, of course, too - and with a smaller baby, the fluffy ones (like, e.g., the Elodie Details foot muff) will fit inside as well.
