The Mamas and Papas Sola is part of the Stroller test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Traditional stroller models like the Sola 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.
Unbiased: Retailers cannot influence placement.
Ad-free: As an integrated part of Consumer Reports, you shop in a completely ad-free environment.
New products only: You will never find used or refurbished products for sale.
