Thule Glide 1

DISCONTINUED in 2017
see 1 parent review

Thule Glide 1 s a robust yet lightweight stroller with three large, air-filled wheels primarily destined for jogging or sports. The front wheel is fixed to ensure maximum comfort when moving fast. The rear wheels feature a soft suspension system, and you can easily remove them if a compact fold is required. The stroller is equipped with a one-handed folding system. Once folded, there is a manual lock to prevent unfolding.

Thanks to the super-spacious, non-reversible seat and high weight capacity, the Glide 1 can handle an older toddler too. The backrest can be reclined quite deeply, but it's not a complete lie-flat. The leg rest is not adjustable. To increase the practicality of the Glide 1, there are internal pockets for small items integrated into the seat, and you can also opt for a child tray. The stroller can be used from birth paired with the carrycot or various brands of car seats (adapters needed). Other accessories are sold separately.
