Friday Face-Off: Lightweight Strollers Round 2!

GLUX VS TRIUMPH VS QUESTClockwise from the left: Triumph, Quest, and G-Luxe

In Round One of lightweight strollers we brought you two amazing contenders: the Maclaren Volo and the Uppababy G-Lite.  This week, we’re taking things up a notch and bringing you not two but three next level lightweights.  We think you’ll be impressed…

THE UPPABABY G-LUXE:

We’re in a new weight class with these three contenders; the G-Luxe weighs in at 13.4 pounds.  But with that new weight class come more features!  In addition to the standard water and stain resistant, machine washable, removable seat pad, the hand level, finger folding triggers, the stand alone capabilities, and the extendable, SPF 50+ sunshade (it’s a lot, but it gets better), the G-Luxe introduces reclining capabilities to the competition.  This stroller reclines with one hand and features an adjustable footrest for when your child needs to nap on the go.

THE MACLAREN TRIUMPH:

Slightly heavier at 6.2kg (13.6lbs), the Triumph’s seat adjusts from upright to 123°.  Like the Volo, it features a five-point, two-finger release harness, water resistant and SPF 50+ protected hood, standard, included rain cover, one hand fold, attached carry strap, one-step, foot-operated linked breaks, and washable fabrics.

THE MACLAREN QUEST

Up until now, we’ve been featuring strollers for children 6 months to 55lbs; now we’re throwing the Quest into the mix which has features for newborns as well.  Weighing in at 6.4kg (14.1lbs), the Quest has all the same features as the Triumph but with some added goodies.  It features a protective newborn cocoon for the extra little ones and a viewing window in the hood so you can keep an eye on them.  It transitions between its four reclining positions at the touch of one hand.  It includes an adjustable leg rest.  And, for added safety, it has reflective accents for nighttime.  It may weigh a little more, but we think it’s worth it.
