Valco Baby Snap Ultra Trend

see 1 parent review

The Valco Baby Snap Ultra Trend is new for 2019. It is a superior Trend version of the original Snap Ultra and the latest Snap Ultra Tailormade with a new type of wheels; elegant, glossy, black chassis; Tailormande melange fabrics and two times extending XXXL hood featuring an added peek-a-boo window. The stroller is also equipped with a bonus 'bootinet' - an elevated safety apron with an integrated net, and an extended bumper bar, which can transform the seat unit into a safe place for the youngest children. Just like other strollers from the Snap family, the patented one-hand fold, the extending hood and the ultra-low weight of 5.6 kg is a matter of course. The stroller can be folded even with the seat attached in whichever direction. The matching Snap Trend Ultra carrycot, as well as well-known brands of car seats with adapters, can be added to the stroller chassis.

The seat unit can be reclined sufficiently even for children that can’t sit independently yet. Although the seat can be used from birth too, it is still better to use it with a newborn nest or an insert. Another advantage is the strap mechanism of the backrest that can be operated using just one hand and a lot of positions of the leg rest (including an elevated one).

Parent reviews of the Valco Baby Snap Ultra Trend

4.0/5

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^
  • a reversible seat (one of my main priorities)
  • super easy to fold and overall lightweight (before we owned the Oyster 3, that was heavier)
  • when the child lays down, you can open a very large ventilation window - our DD likes to lay in her belly and look out through it as well
  • the xxl hood is genius - when you extend it fully, there's plenty of shade even for a nap; we, however, never tried how waterproof it really is..?
  • the normal viewing window is magnetic-closed - so you won't wake up your child (like in our Britax B-Motion 4 Plus)
  • the leg cover with the extra bumper bar (like the one you see in the Youtube video) are included
  • inflatable wheels are not included!!! We had to buy them extra, and they were quite expensive, compared to the overall price of the stroller... but of course, this may seem different to different people
  • even if they claim a full recline, the laying position is not completely flat, even though, it's deep enough
  • the reclined position makes the whole seat similar to those ergonomic/bucket-type seats (the Valco Snap 4 Tailor Made Sport has this better designed)
  • the original leg cover fits perfectly; I do miss, however, side access with some kind of zipper. The zipper is only on the top side, and you can only get the child in through the top - like into a sleeping bag
  • no suspension, but with the optional inflatable wheels is the ride much smoother

I bought the Valco Snap Ultra Trend in May 2020 for my 7-month-old daughter. Our requirements were:

*a reversible seat unit
*inflatable wheels
*large internal space to fit even a larger child
*large hood
