good stroller, but not excellent.
on June 6, 2012
I read all the available reviews and watch the video review on youtube before ordering this stroller. The first impression is "wow, what a beautiful stroller" I got the oceano, which is beautiful. I don't see purple in it. It is a nice blue, very classic.
Personally, here are the pros and cons:
1)very stylish. very simple
2)large pop out sun visor adequately shades the child. That is hard to find in an umbrella stroller.
3)fabric is simple but durable.
4)rigid seat back. Although it is made of 4 smaller vertical boards, its probably better then sling seat.
5)real recline feature
6)very lightweight at 13.3 LBs
7)nice zippered storage pocket on back of canopy.
1)as another reviewer said, the stroller feels somewhat flimsy. I think it is not the most flimsy umbrella stroller out there, but, compared to the maclarens, it does seem more flimsy.
2)steers well. However, compared to the maclarens, this stroller sometimes has a mind of its own. i.e. harder to control it to go where you want it to be. But again, this is compared with the maclarens, which has the best manuberbility in the stroller industry.
3)the wheels are too large. they are 5.5". They are larger then maclarens volo and quest, but don't offer better manuverbility. The larger wheels make the entire stroller somewhat bulky when folded and harder to navigate corners/tighters spaces.
I am just very picky here, comparing this stroller to the maclarens. This stroller does, however, have canopy that maclarens don't have (unless you move up the pricey and heavy techno XT).
This stroller is honesty a very good one at $119. However, back to maclarens for me because for me, the most important feature of a stroller is manuverbility.
