I was very reluctant to pick this stroller. The many complaints and complaints about the brake in a certain group on a social network discouraged me greatly. Due to my requirements and from my point of view a rather poor selection of strollers for twins, I finally just bought it new in the Tailormade Grey Marle version.
The main requirements were high carrying capacity, long and wide seat surface with full and separate leg and back positioning. I don't accept any handmade tweaks to modify the stroller's features. A long hood with windows and, if possible, belly bar(s) and aprons included, at a very friendly price. Inflatable wheels would be a nice plus. And of course, the lowest weight possible, as 2 kids can be quite a handful.
Of the above criteria, the Valco Duo actually meets everything except the wheels. The kids have plenty of room in it and are also protected by the long hoods. The independent positioning guarantees them comfort both when sleeping and sitting. The stroller is easy to handle, and when folded it fits into a smaller suitcase. I miss the inflatable wheels, which are not officially produced for the duo version, and also the suspension, which in my opinion is completely absent, making the stroller hard. Maybe I'm just spoiled from previous Polish prams. I also found over time that the back of the hood is narrow, and therefore it gets blown under in stronger winds. Also, there are gaps in the top center between the canopies through which it blows in.
Nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised by this stroller. It meets the basic requirements of an urban mom for whom the comfort of the children is a priority.
