Features and specifications explained

If you’re not familiar with some terms or you just want a more detailed review of these specifications, keep reading. We will try to define these parameters as simple as possible to eliminate the possibility of a misunderstanding.

The huge canopy is the first thing you’ll notice when you see this stroller. Many parents don’t care about the size of the canopy and it’s a common mistake. People think it only protects from sun and rain. Well, it’s more than that. It protects from the wind, dust, flying debris, and more. Every parent wants the best for their child, but most of them make a mistake by not caring about the canopy and focusing on some other features. It’s not mandatory for it to be as big as possible, but it certainly won’t harm your child in any way. So, to conclude, always buy a stroller with a bigger (or wider) canopy.

The adjustable handlebar is a great commodity to have. It allows you to move the handle bar into a position that suits you the best at any given moment. Instead of accustoming your hands to one position you can now adjust the handlebar to the desired position. This bar offers nine different positions, going from 34 inches to 45 inches from the ground. It’s also nicely padded with soft foam, so it offers a comfortable and a firm grip.

The seat is around 15 inches wide and 23 inches high from the bottom of the seat to the top of the canopy. This is more than enough room for any child within the recommended age range for this stroller. The padding on the seat will provide maximum comfort for your child. The material is easily washable and extremely durable. Recline is deep, and it goes almost to the flat position. It’s crucial to have a big angle difference in recline because it offers much more comfort for your child.

Also, recline has been improved in oppose to earlier models, and you can recline the seat with just one hand. However, you’ll have to use both hands when putting it back up, but it’s much easier than before. The seat is now suitable for children weighing up to 75 pounds! Well, it’s safe to say it will endure any child up to ten years of age. However, you’ll hardly have to use baby strollers for ten-year-old kids. Storage pockets are what make this baby stroller so great. There’s a ton of free room for everything you want to take with you, from newspapers to baby food.

There’s a storage pocket beneath the seat, two are integrated into the seat, and there’s a storage pocket on the outside of the back of the seat. Needless to say, there’s very little chance you’ll run out of free space to store necessary things for your baby. The wheels are air-filled, and this type is the perfect one for off-road as well as on-road commuting.
