This Combi stroller is a departure from the company's usual compact/umbrella designs. We found it bulky and heavy, but it is versatile.

About

The Combi Catalyst is part of the Stroller test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Traditional stroller models like the Catalyst are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Ease of use: Ease of use is based primarily on ease of using and adjusting the safety harness, folding and unfolding, adjusting backrest, lifting and carrying, engaging wheel brakes and car seat removal and installation (only for compatible strollers).

Maneuverability: Maneuverability is assessed by trained testers, taking into account how well each stroller, with a weight bag "passenger," maneuvered in S-turns through cones, in narrow sections, on grass, dirt trails with tree roots and other debris, uphill, downhill and up and down curbs while walking.

Safety: Safety is assessed by testing for compliance with the most current version of the standard, ASTM F833-15, and stability and braking and other tests designed by Consumers Union.

In our Ratings, strollers designated as "Car-seat compatible as sold" include any and all accessories needed to install at least one model of infant car seat. Some strollers allow a car seat to snap right in, while others may need a bracket or other adapter.
Yes
One-touch brakes One-touch brakes One-touch brakes are more convenient than standard brakes. Arguably still more convenient - and certainly more friendly to moms wearing open-toe shoes - are hand-operated one-touch brake levers such as those found on some Baby Jogger, Chicco and other strollers.
