Peg-Pérego Book 51

The Peg-Pérego Book 51 (also known as the Book Plus 51) is a variation of the model Book Plus. To offer easier maneuverability through narrow spaces, the compact chassis is only 51 cm wide. It is lighter too. There is a rotating mechanism located on the side of the chassis to lock the front wheels, so you don’t need to bend to do so.

The Book 51 is also available as a part of the popular stroller system Elite, the Pop Up or the XL. If you choose the Sportivo version, all the accessories have to be purchased separately. However, the Completo version comes with an apron and a rain cover included. There is also an option to purchase only the chassis and then add either the optional Pop Up seat, the Navetta carrycot or the Primo Viaggio car seat. The Pop Up seat can be reclined flat, including the leg rest. The hood features a strap for attaching a favorite toy. It is quite short in its basic form, but it can be extended by opening another panel, and can also be used as a follow-the-sun shield.

The lightweight aluminum chassis is equipped with a suspension system as well as a shaped handlebar. Thanks to the wheels with suspension and 12 ball bearings, the steering is by 30% easier compared to similar strollers. The stroller can be folded one-handedly the way a book does, hence the name. Another advantage of this stroller is the large shopping basket with easy load system, meaning that the rear part can be folded down.
