Not bad, but it has some flaws

3
  • low price
  • low weight
  • large wheels, front with locking option
  • quite large shopping basket
  • no suspension
  • small gap at front wheel lock
  • not so great quality (rattly)

I have a 2015 model, a 2 in 1 combination. The stroller is not bad, but it has some flaws.

I was looking for a lightweight stroller for terrain. I pull the stroller up stairs and I'm 50 pounds myself, so I wanted a lightweight stroller first and foremost. The stroller meets this point perfectly. It is a little heavier as a pram (with the cot), but it is still easy to handle.

According to the description, the stroller is suitable for the terrain, but it is not so great. It does have quite large wheels, but the front wheels have a small gap between the wheel and the locking system, so snow, mud and wet leaves get stuck there. Then the wheels get choppy and ride like a sledge. If the wheels aren't locked, it's a little better, but not great. The stroller has no suspension, so little babies bounce around a lot in the bassinet.

The canopy on the seat allows for expansion when you unzip the zipper, but this expansion itself doesn't hold much - especially when going uphill or over bumps. The stroller brake started to fall off on its own after less than two years of use.

The apron on the cot attaches with magnets, so it does blow in a little.

I couldn't have picked a better one

It took me a long time to choose, but I couldn't have picked a better one :-)

I had it with both children

I had it with both children, and I was satisfied.

Goes through almost everything

A decent stroller that goes through almost everything. I am happy with it.

The only thing I minded was the recline system

I was happy with it - I had the 2007 model :-D The only thing I minded was the recline system.

We had two XA models

  • Spacious seat
  • Full reclining seat positioning
  • Extendable canopy
  • Relatively large front and rear wheels for off-road use
  • Stroller weight
  • Seat cannot be positioned with one hand
  • Seat cannot be put on rearward facing
  • Stroller has no suspension, is quite stiff on the ground
  • Not compact, hard to fit in a smaller car boot - wheels have to be removed

A spacious sports stroller for children aged 0-36 months. We had two XA models. One from 2009 which we used as a second stroller for the garden, grandma's etc. And then a newer one from 2017.

I can't fail to add that as stressed as the 2009 model was, it was still solid and sturdy even after nine years. Nothing squeaked anywhere, the wheels didn't squeak, the folding of the structure was also fine.

By contrast, the 2017 model was in the same condition, perhaps even worse than the 2009 model, after just a month of daily use. The handle had loosened, the brake had started to fall off on its own at times. The front wheels were clicking after a month. The rear right wheel had a broken release mechanism. I dare say of myself that I value things and handle them with care - even more so when it is a new stroller.

  • Spacious carrycot (even for a winter child, with a footmuff)
  • Spacious seat unit
  • Big, air-filled wheels
  • Very easy to push (even for my older 5-year-old)
  • Complete lay-flat in the seat part
  • Seat unit only faces forward
  • The backrest adjustment in the seat is not too practical
  • A bit too hard on uneven surfaces - no suspension
  • A transparent part on the canopy

X-lander XA, version Europe - I chose it because of the big wheels to tackle snow because we have an October baby. It handles great even in harsh terrain. I can go anywhere with it.

The biggest drawback being that the seat unit cannot change directions, which I got used to. But the backrest recline is terribly made. You need two hands to put the seat down, which really sucks manipulation-wise. I have to squat to get to it. Another absurdity is the transparent part on the canopy of the seat unit. It's okay to see the baby - BUT there is nothing to cover it, so the sun shines on your baby. I had to put a blanket over it.
