Baby Jogger City Mini vs. City Mini GT
If you’re looking into a stroller to fit your active lifestyle, you can’t go wrong with Baby Jogger! But with so many options to choose from, how do you know which one best fits for you and babe?
The Baby Jogger City Mini and the City Mini GT are perfect for mamas who are looking for an easy-to-use, smooth ride for all your adventures indoors or out! They’re both lightweight, easy to use, and comfortable for your babe. But because they’re so similar, you may be going back and forth between which one makes the most sense for you.
We’re here to help! Here’s a little more info on the two to help you make the best decision. You can also take a look at one of our Cubby Mamas going over the similarities and differences in this video!
When it comes to the specs, the Mini and the Mini GT are almost identical, but the GT is going to have a few extra features that may be a better fit for some families.
Both strollers are super lightweight and have the mama-friendly one-handed fold which makes it a breeze to get in and out of the trunk. Plus, the fold is super compact so it stores really well! Thanks to the added features, the GT is about 5 lbs heavier.
The generous canopy with peek-in windows and the flat recline make this super convenient for babes that wanna take a little snooze while you stroll, and the padded seat is going to make sure they ride comfortably! The GT will have a little more padding than the Mini, and it also has a taller seat and weight capacity which will help to accommodate for bigger kids.
The tires on the City Mini and the Mini GT are where you’ll see the most difference between the two. The City Mini has all rubber tires, which make it great for your easier surfaces like tile, concrete, or sidewalks. The GT has foam-filled rubber tires which make it easier to maneuver on rougher terrain, and, thanks to the added shocks, it makes going over bumps and uneven trails more comfortable for your little one!
The two strollers also have different handle bars and braking systems. The GT has a hand brake and an adjustable handlebar, versus the foot break and the fixed handlebar on the City Mini. But both will come with the same adapter option for infant car seats.
It’s an important thing to mention that neither of these strollers are intended for jogging, but Baby Jogger did every mama a solid by making sure the City Mini and the Mini GT come in a bunch of different colors to make sure you can pick the stroller that matches your personality and your lifestyle!
The Baby Jogger City Mini and the City Mini GT are both great options for mamas who are looking for a sleek, light stroller that will go from the mall to the park and nearly every place in between.
