Nuna trvl

Nuna's first travel ultracompact stroller/system
.eli
see 1 parent review

The Nuna trvl is a TRAVEL, compact stroller made for parents convenience. You'll find quite a few comfort features on it, such as a very easy, one-hand, semi-automatic fold; a padded seat with extra-easy, slide up & down harness; an easy magnetic buckle; a one-hand operated strap backrest recline mechanism; a one-touch click-on click-off brake activated as well as deactivated by pushing from the top; and a lot of extra ventilation on the top as well as in the rear of the canopy. Also, the trvl buggy also offers adapter-free compatibility with the Nuna Pipa car seats, which you can click right on the bumper bar.

Nuna trvl, still, stays simple, meaning that it doesn't recline fully. The seat is, therefore, not suitable for newborns or babies that didn't sit by themselves yet. To be used for traveling from birth, the only way is to pair it up with one of the Pipa line of lightweight car seats, making the trvl one of the lightest travel systems on the market. Another downside is the slightly larger size that doesn't get accepted by all airlines, so be sure to check before taking it with you as cabin luggage. A practical travel bag is included with the Nuna trvl.

Parent reviews of the Nuna trvl

4.0/5
Add YOUR review
if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to manoeuvre
  • Easily collapses
  • Easy to store
  • Good storage
  • Reclines well
  • The straps are very uncomfortable and hard to adjust
  • Bumper bar leather bit peeled off after a month of owning and only a week’s use
  • Pricey for the quality

It’s great for travelling as the one-hand fold feature works so quickly. It’s also really light to push and easy to swivel. Storage but underneath is ample for a day out. The only thing I would say is that the straps are really tricky to adjust, and my daughter looks so uncomfortable in it when sitting for a length of time. She also managed to get out of the buggy without undoing the straps & they were at their tightest.

Not sure it’s the best design for a toddler my daughter is 10kg in weight and 17 months old and she’s almost the length of the buggy. It’s a lovely made buggy with stylish colour but for the price, I had hoped it might be more comfortable for her.

The other thing with it is used it for a week’s beach holiday in Greece and when we returned the brown leather on the bumper bar was peeling off. Not sure if it was the heat or just if it’s a fault.

Your questions about the Nuna trvl

1)

Is Nuna trvl able to work with Beblum Danzo car seat?

Hiya, Jason,

The Beblum Danzo is using the same car seat adapters - attachment system as Maxi-Cosi cars seats, so yes, you can pair it up with the trvl with Maxi-Cosi adaptors.

Does it have a footrest? Looking to buy two lightweight strollers for holidays for a 6 month old and 3 year old. Would prefer to purchase one which has a footrest for comfort for my older child. Thanks.

Hiya,

Well, yes, the trvl does have a footrest, but it is quite small/shallow. The overall quality is also not as great for that price here, though, so I personally would NOT recommend this for a 3 years old. For an older toddler, I'd rather go with a better model. Some inspiration can be found in THIS top 2022 ultracompacts article I have put together, so I would suggest reading that.

Is the TRVL compatible with the Bugaboo by Nuna Turtle Air car seat?

Hiya, Kay,

The Bugaboo by Nuna Turtle Air car seat is presented to fit the Maxi-Cosi/Cybex car seat adapter style, and the TRVL only fits the classic Nuna car seats without adapters thanks to a click-on mechanism in the rear part. The rear part seems to be similar on the Turtle Air, BUT there is no official statement about any other compatibility. I di believe it should be possible to click it on, but because of the lack of securing system in that rear click-on part on the Turtle, it would most probably not be secured enough for it to be safe. I wouldn't, therefore, recommend pairing the TRVL stroller and the Turtle Air.

If you have an option to try the compatibility out in a shop, empty, and trying even to move the stroller to the sides to check if the Turtle won't fall down, go ahead, you might be positively surprised. The chances are there, but they seem to be slim. And if you're deciding to buy it just online, I would probably go for a more sure car seat.

Hello! Is the Nuna Trvl compatible with any other brand infant carseat? For ex: Chicco, Graco, etc?

Hi, Lauren,

I am sorry but no, it doesn't accept the Graco nor the Chicco. It only works with the Nuna PIPA, PIPA RX, PIPA Lite, PIPA Lite R, PIPA Lite RX, and PIPA Lite LX car seats.

How does this compare with the Nuna Triv? They seem very similar. Are there any major advantages / disadvantages to the TRVL (vs the Triv)?

Hey there,

well, the trvl stroller is, just like its name suggests, different in its OCCASIONAL suitability meant for traveling. I would never really recommend this smaller model for everyday use as it's WEAKER, less roomy, less durable, and with much worse driving characteristics than any normal everyday model - not alone a reversible stroller as the Nuna Triv is. To learn more, read this article of ours talking about ultra-compact strollers.

So the basic difference is - the reversible Triv s meant as a comfort urban model for babies even if they don't sit by themselves just yet, for moms needing something where they see the baby even if it means a shorter seat and less space to the canopy, AND something mid-size. The non-reversible, ultra-compact trvl is a small, occasional alternative for holidays, airports, around shops - when you don't care much about longevity and terrain just need something small to pack into the cabin luggage compartment.

My own opinion is that the trvl is not worth the money - there are better ultracompacts out there. (...check his top 2021 list of ultracompacts.)

...also worth checking:

Also good to know is that the Triv was rated not as good as it looks, and moms say it is not stable - so rather check something better like a Cybex Mios.
