Thule Urban Glide Double

DISCONTINUED in 2017
see 1 parent review

Thule Urban Glide Double is a practical and relatively lightweight three-wheeled double stroller featuring two identical, side-by-side seats for twins or for siblings with a small age gap. Thanks to the swivel, lockable front wheel, the stroller is suitable for everyday use as well as for jogging or sport. The air-filled wheels and the soft, rear suspension provide a smooth ride over any terrain. The stroller even offers a one-handed fold. Once folded, there is a manual lock to prevent unfolding.

Thanks to the spacious, non-reversible seats and high weight capacity, the Glide Double is able to handle even older toddlers. The backrests can be reclined quite deeply, but it’s not a full lie-flat. The leg rests are not adjustable. To increase the practicality of the Glide Double, there are internal pockets for small items integrated into the seat, and you can also opt for a bumper bar or two. The stroller can be used from birth paired with up to two carrycots or various brands of car seats (adapters needed). All accessories are, however, sold separately.
