Maneuverability

Maneuverability

Maneuverability is assessed by trained testers, taking into account how well each stroller, with a weight bag "passenger," maneuvers on our course: 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.

 /  5
Safety

Safety

Safety is assessed by testing to the requirements of the federal stroller safety standard, 16 CFR Parts 1112 and 1227, which incorporates, by reference, the most current version of the ASTM stroller safety standard, ASTM F833-19. We also put strollers through Stability and Braking and other tests designed by CR.

Features

Suitable for 6 mos. and under

Suitable for 6 mos. and under

Suitability for babies 6 months and younger means the stroller's seat reclines to nearly flat. It may include a safety flap or enclosure at the child's feet so, if not harnessed, he can't slip or wiggle out of the seat. Even with this added feature, the harness should always be used. Strollers with the note "with accessory" require a separately purchased accessory to accommodate a 0-6 months baby safely, per the manufacturer.

No
Car-seat compatible as sold

Car-seat compatible as sold

Car-seat compatibility is useful when moving a sleeping infant from a car to the stroller; there's no need to wake your baby from that much-needed nap. 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.

No
Suitable for running or jogging

Suitable for running or jogging

According to the manufacturer, this stroller can be used for running or jogging. Remember to check with your pediatrician before taking your little passenger along for a run; CR's medical experts advise that a child should be one year old before riding with a running parent. A younger baby may not have sufficient head and neck control to tolerate the bumps and jounces he might experience on your run. Be sure to read the appropriate section of your stroller's instruction manual carefully before taking your child out for a run with you.

One-touch brakes
