Video: Comparing the Cybex Gazelle S v. UPPAbaby VISTA V2

Are you in the market for a single-to-double stroller? The Cybex Gazelle S and UPPAbaby VISTA V2 are two really similar strollers you should definitely take a look at!

Let’s start off by going over the things they have in common.

  • Both have telescoping handlebars with leather accenting for grip.
  • Each stroller has an extendable sun canopy with a peekaboo window.
  • The included seats are pretty similar. They both have a 360-degree rotating belly bar to make it easier to get your child in and out, a no-rethread harness to make adjustments easy, and a weight capacity of 50 pounds. Additionally, each of the seats recline and can face forward or backward.
  • Both strollers have all-wheel suspension with foam filled tires. Their wheels are the same size—11 inches in back and 8 inches in front.
  • They both have foot brakes, and each of these strollers weigh the same—about 27 pounds.

Now let’s touch on some of their differences:

  • The VISTA V2 and the Gazelle S both have a large storage basket underneath, but the Gazelle S comes with a detachable shopping basket as well to give you even more storage space!
  • The VISTA V2 has a height-adjustable canopy to accommodate your growing child, but both of them have adjustable footrests.
  • Although these strollers both expand from a single-to-double stroller in a similar way, there are a few differences worth mentioning:
    • The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 comes with a seat unit and a bassinet, but you have to purchase separate adapters to turn it into a double stroller or if you want to attach a car seat. If you have two older children, you can purchase a RumbleSeat separately to attach on the bottom. It’s slightly smaller and has a lower weight capacity than the main seat.
    • The Gazelle S, on the other hand, has flip-up adapters included on the bottom of the frame to make it a double. The upper adapters have 3 possible height positions, and they adjust easily by sliding up and down the frame. The Gazelle S comes with a set of Cybex car seat adapters. If you want to attach a second seat, bassinet, or a car seat, those need to be purchased separately.
  • These strollers fold really similarly. The VISTA V2 has triggers on each side of the frame that you pull up, and the Gazelle has a combination of two buttons on the handlebar and one trigger on the side of the frame. The Gazelle S has more of a learning curve when you first try folding it, but it’s easy once you catch on!
  • Each stroller will fold easily in half, whether you have one or two seats attached! They both stand when folded. 
  • Straight out of the box, the Gazelle S is less expensive than the VISTA V2—it’s just under $300 less. Something to keep in mind is that the VISTA does require purchasing separate adapters to make it a double, which adds to the cost. The Gazelle S has adapters included or built-in, but doesn’t come with a bassinet like the VISTA does.

Overall, these strollers are really similar in structure and in operation. There are some differences with what the packages include, but we hope this video has helped to clarify things and make your shopping decision easier!
