Sealed Bearing Wheels Make the Difference
Clearly, wheels are a big factor when choosing a stroller as nothing impacts the way something rolls like the wheels it rolls upon. Like skateboards and rollerblades, the Caboose Ultralight uses the same technology with the highest grade sealed bearing wheels. These tiny workhorses are designed to reduce friction and support heavy loads, as in growing children. Sealed bearings cost more but offer the smoothest ride possible and make pushing almost effortless.
Tandem Strolling Made Easy
The Caboose Ultralight is a versatile double stroller that offers the size, weight and maneuverability of a single stroller without compromising features. It's designed to stroll with two children of different ages, and it's a whole lot of fun too!
“Two kids, now what? I want a double stroller, but most of them scare me because they’re so big and hard to manage.”
“The baby will be in the infant car seat for the next few months, but my older child still needs a seat on occasion. He does like to walk some of the time.”
If you can you relate to these statements, you should consider a Caboose Ultralight, the tandem stroller that's the most lightweight and compact on the market.
Tandem strolling is ideal for strolling with children of different ages because each child needs a little something different.
The Caboose Ultralight is like having two strollers in one. It converts quickly from a compact double stroller to a stand-on tandem so older child can sit on the bench seat or ride on the stand-on platform. It comes with a universal car seat adapter (fits most brands) so infants can ride comfortably nested in the front seat.
“That sounds great to me, but why is a stand-on tandem better than a traditional double stroller or a convertible?”
You'll love that the stroller is small like a single stroller and has space for two children. And there's more: as your children grow, remove the car seat adapter in the front and attach the included snack tray. Your child now has a 3-position seat with 5-point harness. Your older child can choose to sit on the bench seat and buckle up with the 3-point harness or ride standing on the stand-on platform. As your older child begins walking more than riding, no worries! They can hop on and off whenever they get tired and best of all, you’re not pushing a huge, heavy double stroller.
Bottom line: the Caboose Ultralight is no longer, no wider, no heavier and is just as maneuverable as many single strollers.
Expecting Your Second Child?
The Caboose Ultralight comes with a universal car seat adapter (works with most brands) that will allow you to stroll with your newborn and older child. Simply install the infant car seat adapter to the tray housing, recline the front seat to the second position where you'll nest the cast seat, and buckle baby in using the included safety straps.

Compact tandem stroller has 3-position reclining front seat. Rear bench seat and stand-on platform provide strolling options for older child.

That's a lot of "must have's"! We also wanted something that would allow for our 5 year old to take a break when needed. It was also nice to help contain him in heavy crowd areas.
This stroller did it all! Both of my boys loved riding around in it and I never had a single problem with the stroller. The basket is big and whatever we could not fit below we hung from the back bar. The side pockets in the bottom bag is also nice for getting at things quickly. I could push the stroller and turn corners by only pushing with one hand it worked so well. We also looked at the Joovy Ergo stroller but felt it was too large to handle and not allowing the baby to recline was a deal breaker. Long days at parks mean the baby has to have a place to take a nap at some point. I found the shade helped a lot but I also used a light blanket (aden and anais swaddle blankets are perfect) over it as well to help block breezes and other distractions. My older son was jealous of the cool "fort" that it created.
We also purchased the sun cover and the rain cover. Neither of which we ended up using but do fit nicely on the stroller.
The stroller was great for traveling through the airport as well and was simple to fold and open with one hand.
Overall I would recommend this to anyone with two children especially for traveling through big parks like Disney World.
Here are some things I took into consideration when choosing a double stroller.
1) Weight: how much does the stroller weight? My wife came along to test some of these strollers and lifting most of them into an SUV or Minivan is not an easy task.
2) Size: How big is it when it get folded up? If you have a sedan you can forget about trying to put anything else in your trunk after your double stroller is in it.
3) Comfort\Compatibility\Scalibility: How comfortable is it for your kid? Will it suit my kids needs? Can they grow with this stroller or will they outgrow it in a year?
4) Functionality: How well does it work? Is it easy to use?
Here are my pro's and con's with our stroller
1) Looks great, many different colors to choose from. We get looks and complements from other parents saying how cool the stoller looks. Expecting moms always turn to their husbands say, honey, this is the one I want.
2) Folds up much smaller and is lighter than most doubles. It is 21 lbs. The frame is made of metal and feels very solid
3) The back sets gives my older son the "big boy" feel. He has choices as to if he wants to sit or stand. He can ride looking forwards or backwards.Read more ›
-Toddler easily gets in & out of the back, and actually has room with the Joovy Too seat adapter, although it doesn't look that way
-Although the umbrella/sunshade's detachability makes it smaller when folded, the need to remove it / re-attach it creates a small amount of extra hassle when loading and unloading the stroller
-The infant's car seat (a Graco) fits in the adapter well, but I was surprised the design does not create a "lock" like the adapter on my BOB stroller. Instead, it has a safety strap to secure it.
-Toddler slightly over-reclined in the velcro seat adapter & slides down into the cargo basket if not buckled in
-Ball bearing wheels mean this thing does move easily - once it starts moving.
-Put the heavier child in the back. Should the big kid sit up front and the lighter one in the back, you'll end up with a top-heavy stroller that's hard to turn (applies to all strollers).
-The rear bench seat slides. You can/should move it all the way back to give the rear child more hear room if they are seating facing the parent.
-This thing has a solid construction.
TIPS to really make you love this thing.
-Search for a small elastic/budgie cargo net. Hook it to the rear handle bar and now the rear child can also seat FORWARD facing and relax/fall asleep! The parent cup holder can stretch and slide down to become the head rests. Joovy should pay me for this :)
-When folding this stroller, if you slide the rear adjustable seat all the way back, it folds down and compresses EVEN MORE!
-I do dislike that the front tray (or universal car seat adapter *cough* metal bar) is snapped in and protrudes quite a bit. This defeats the compact size. It should have a up or down-wards locking and folding option.
-If the rear child is seating forward facing, the feet 'can' push the basket, touching the front wheels.
