If you and your little are needing something new for cruising around town and you're trying to find the an easy to use, lightweight umbrella stroller the Uppababy G-Luxe is a great option! This stroller has the compact size without skimping on features. Here are five reasons why it'll steal your heart:
1 Step Brake
This is a great feature that you won't find on your standard umbrella stroller, where you will normally have to push a brake on both of the back wheels to lock them. The G-Luxe has one brake; push down to lock, lift up to release. It also has the added bonus of having front wheel locks which keeps them from swiveling, and is a great thing to have when you're going over rougher terrain with your stroller.
2 Ergonomic Handles
The handles for the G-Luxe were definitely made with the parent in mind. They are high enough that you won't feel like your hunching over like you find with a lot of lightweight strollers, they're easy to grip, and their angled design gives you good control. The fact that there are 2 separate handles can sometimes be annoying if you are a mama who sometimes pushes with one hand, because it's harder to control the direction of the stroller, so that's something to consider. Something that you'll find included on this stroller is a cupholder (a must have for a stroller in my humble mama opinion) which is just awesome to find included with an umbrella stroller.
3 Recline Positions
Having the ability to change up the recline of this stroller is so nice for whenever you're trying to get your little to nap, or even just get a little more comfortable. The G-Luxe has the upright position, a slight recline, and then a nearly flat recline (the perfect nap position). It also has a large canopy with 50 SPF, and an adjustable footrest to maximize comfort for your kids no matter where you are!
The UPPAbaby G-Luxe has suspension on all 4 wheels, which makes it a super smooth ride for your little, and makes for better maneuverability. Another thing that makes this stroller super easy to use is the finger-trigger fold, the carrying strap, and the fact that it stands up once it's folded.
When you have little ones, you know how impossible it is to keep them in place, but with the 5-point harness on the G-Luxe you won't be worrying about that. Plus with the water-resistant fabric, removable seat pad, and easy-to-access basket, you'll be good to go with whatever craziness your babe throws at you during your trip!
Overall the UPPAbaby G-Luxe is an umbrella stroller with amazing features that you would normally only get with a full stroller, while still being lightweight and compact. It maximizes child and parent convenience and is a stroller you can use from little babes to big kids!
