Valco Baby Spark Duo

DISCONTINUED in 2013

The Valco Baby Spark Duo is a double stroller for two children based on the Spark. The Spark Duo features two 2in1 Transforma seat units that can be converted into carrycots so that you can use them for newborns. The bucket-type seat units can be reclined in both directions, but in seat form, they are suitable for children older than six months. For winter, the Spark Duo comes with aprons included; while it also features soft, breathable AirGo fabrics as well as extendable hoods for summer months. The carrycots are equipped with a soft mattress and a washable liner to provide maximum comfort for the baby and the mom.

The lightweight chassis is agile mainly in the city. Thanks to the air-filled rear wheels with suspension, the Spark Duo can occasionally handle a lawn or an uneven surface. You can fold the chassis even with a seat or both seats still attached. Once folded, you have to lock the chassis manually to prevent unfolding. The stroller also features a spacious shopping basket with opening sides as well as the back part.
