The Stokke Crusi is a versatile, high-end stroller or a stroller system. The sturdier chassis with larger foam wheels is primarily suited for city rides but can handle even more challenging conditions. The spacious and easily accessible shopping basket is also an advantage.

The bucket seat is placed high up to allow the child to look around and to provide a closer contact with the parent too. The seat is reversible, can be used as parent or forward-facing. You have three recline options when the seat is parent-facing - upright, semi-reclined and a lie flat, and two positions - upright and semi-reclined way when forward-facing. When not reclined, the seat is very upright. The foot rest does not lift up, but its length can be adjusted. The seat is suitable for children approximately 6 months of age and older, however, using the optional newborn insert, it can be used from birth. For the youngest children, you have the option to purchase a carrycot or a car seat to create the desired combination. The Crusi can be personalized by using seat textile kits (Style Kits) including the summer kit with a sun visor or the insulated winter kit with fur, as well as various other accessories.

With a set of special adapters and a seat also compatible with the Stokke Scoot, the Crusi can be transformed into a tandem stroller for siblings with a small age gap. The second seat can’t be adjusted in this configuration, it will always be in a reclined, almost lying position. Both seats have to be parent-facing. The higher seat must be reclined into the desired position before adding the additional seat as it is not possible to recline neither of them once on the chassis.

At the end of 2016, the Crusi was discontinued and replaced by an already existing model Stokke Trailz in the Classic version, with foam wheels. The main difference is the inability to add the sibling seat. The Crusi carrycot, the seat, and the adapters are the same as on the Trailz.

parents say thx^^
  • The Stokke brand
  • Foam wheels
  • Hard frame, not much suspension

Okay. A good stroller - it was my first so I didn't know what to expect.

Very good, thoughtful details. Beautiful design, which is paramount for me.

  • Easy to steer
  • Stackable in the car
  • Shopping basket large enough
  • No problem with wheels
  • Easy maintenance
  • Covers could be washed
  • Lots of accessories
  • None

For me a top of the line stroller. My husband himself praised it - despite the price. We also had an Xplory V3, but the Crusi was perfect.

One of the heavier, bulkier ones

3
  • Various kits
  • For terrain
  • Large seating
  • Newborn insert
  • Extended canopy
  • Harder to control
  • Open storage space
  • Belly bar must be detached in its entirety

It's one of the heavier, bulkier ones. You can buy accessories, different kits - and you have a brand new stroller.

If I could, I would choose it again :)

For me definitely the top of the line of strollers. If I could, I would choose it again :)

I would buy it again

  • Great from every point of view
  • I found none - maybe just the folded size that is not optimal if you have a small car

A superb pram, I use it with a universally fitting sibling board for my eldest (now she sits on it, later we'll use it for her standing on it). I would buy it again, I was completely satisfied.

A car with a bigger trunk is ideal

4
  • Good manipulation
  • Large bassinet and storage space underneath
  • Nice practical design 😊
  • You need a bigger car when transporting the chassis, bassinet and car seat 😁

So far I am using the bassinet and the egg, and I am satisfied with the handling. Easy to fold, unfold and stow :) The bassinet is larger, so a car with a bigger trunk is ideal, as the frame takes up a lot of space. The car seat is great, I have nothing to add :) I don't use the seat yet :)

It 1 000 000% suited me

5

It's a top-class stroller. It 1 000 000% suited me. We also had the Sibling adapter and seat unit - all worked out like a dream. Lightweight, and especially in the mountains 👌👌👌 (as we are living near and walks in the woods and other difficult terrain are quite a regular thing for us).

  • Large basket
  • Design
  • Sturdy chassis
  • Large-enough seat unit
  • A good push
  • The bumper bar doesn't open - I need to remove it to put my daughter into the seat
  • Too robust for me (I am petite and slim)

I have the Crusi as a spare - so I only have it for a few weeks 🙂 I am used to our Joolz Day 2, and the Crusi doesn't fit me that well.

Your questions about the Stokke Crusi

1)

What’s the maximum age/weight limit for this stroller?

Hi, Nadya,

The official numbers for the weight capacity were - 15 kg in the main seat, 15 kg in the second seat, and 2 kg in the basket. I do think, however, that the stroller should withstand more than those 15 kg in the seat if used as a single, maybe up to 20 kg, but that is just my assumption. However, the seat is not so large as to be spacious enough for a 20kg child. Realistically, you will be using this reversible seat up to 2 and a half - 3 years of the child (a bit less if it is a large, tall toddler).

Hi,

Do you know if the Stokke Crusi is compatible with the Maxi Cosi car seat via an adapter?

Hi, Stacey,

Stokke does not support other than the Stokke Izi Go ar seat to be attached to the Crusi frame because of the pram being a single-to-double = compatible with a second seat.

According to the Stokke official website, "Car seat adapters, such as those available for the Stokke® Xplory® stroller, are not available for the Stokke® Crusi stroller. The reason for this is that the car seat brands which are compatible with Stokke® car seat adapters have harnesses exposed at the back side. This would present a safety concern when such a car seat is used in the sibling configuration of the Stokke® Crusi stroller, as the child seated in the lower seat could grab on to the car seat harness."

I mean, the Crusi should be compatible with the Stokke Trailz Maxi-Cosi/Cybex-style set of adapters (try at stokke.com, at Stokke retailers, or on eBay and similar marketplaces), but it might be a safety concern and it is advisable to use the Stokke IZI Go and IZISleep car seat solution.
