This year has been the most exciting for new entrants and improvements to the double stroller market. Some of our favourites have seen considerable improvements (finally?!!) and new brands have come to American shores. Here we round up for you this years standout Twin strollers – tell us which one you choose!
Mountain Buggy Duet 2017
As the narrowest side-by-side double stroller available, the Mountain Buggy Duet 17 is now the number one stroller amongst our class attendees for 2017.
With an upgrade this year the improvements include:
one-hand fast fold that is more compact
seats are a taller to accommodate children up to 4 years of age
added gear tray storage compartments on the underseat basket
new colors – Grid, Marine, Black and Silver
UppaBaby Vista Double 2017
Upgrades for this model include:
4 new colors – Austin Hunter Green, Henry Blue Marl, Dennison Burgundy, Loic White
New genuine leather handlebar/bumper bar covers (on the Austin, Hunter and Loic only)
New sunshade material that is 50 spf with locks
1.5 lbs lighter
Redesigned wheels that are now solid PolyUrethane rather than AirGo rubber. They are also
1″ narrower at the rear wheels.
Joolz Geo2 Twin
As a new brand to the US market, Joolz is in direct competition to UppaBaby in the tandem stroller space. With an ethical focus that previously only Bumbleride could boast, we love that this company is creating products with the upmost care towards sustainable materials.
Key features of this beautiful stroller include:
stroller width of just 24 inches
folds up in one smooth motion and even with two seats it is a compact one-piece fold
all linings and accessories are crafted from organic cotton and are sturdy, non-toxic and hypoallergenic
extra large storage basket
Baby Jogger City Select LUX 2017
This stroller has been on our recommended gear list for over 5 years now! It’s been a perennial favourite of Twin parents and remains the number second-hand stroller searched by expecting parents.
The upgrade this year has been significant:
Fabrics are now an improved texture – slate, port, taupe, and graphite (neutral colors)
Fold is now 30% smaller – which makes traveling and storing much easier
Brake is now located closer to your fingertips and has two settings – decelerating and parking
Added suspension to all four wheels gives a much smoother ride and push
Valco Baby Neo Twin
A brand new stroller that debuted this year from our favorite brand for parents or twins + toddler (see our review of Valco try Mode here).
What we love:
8″ front and 10″ rear air-tires
Adjustable footrest, and handlebar make it comfy to use.
The infant-ready seats lie flat for newborns.
A huge easy-to-access underseat basket gives you plenty of room for everything you’ll need.
The stroller also stands on its own when folded.
Weighs approximately 27 lbs which is considerably lighter than other doubles.
