Ready to take your Mini to the max? The Baby Jogger City Mini GT 2014 Stroller has everything that parents love about the classic Baby Jogger City Mini… and just a little bit more!
The City Mini GT stroller adds tough 8.5” all-terrain Forever Air wheels to the City Mini’s winning formula, making it easier to take on playground mulch, gravel, grass, cobblestones, bumpy sidewalks, and other challenging surfaces – we’ve even seen moms pushing it in the snow! The GT stroller model also adds an adjustable handlebar (32”-42”), a hand brake, and, perhaps most exciting of all, it adds a whopping 15 pounds to the total weight limit of your stroller, carrying kids weighing up to 65 pounds! The Baby Jogger City Mini GT adds all of this while still weighing in at a relatively petite 21 pounds – it’s still no sweat to handle.
Other features of the 2014 Baby Jogger City Mini GT Stroller include:
The Baby Jogger City Mini GT 2014 model has no major changes from the previous year – just the new Baby Jogger logo and some new color options. After all, Baby Jogger has already maximized the possibilities!
lightweight, sturdy, super-easy fold, compact, great canopy
small, somewhat difficult-to-access basket, relatively easy to tip backwards
The 2014 City Mini GT is a great lightweight stroller; it fills the niche between true umbrella stroller and your standard/bulkier single stroller. The things I love about it are the amazing one-step, single-handed fold, the very small footprint (fits easily into our Prius with room to spare for groceries, or even 2 carry-ons and a travel crib). The tires are great and make for a smooth ride even over beat up sidewalks. The canopy provides great coverage (the UPPAbaby may have slightly more). This stroller is great if you need to go up and down stairs and if you need to fold/unfold with baby in tow and no help. The things I think could use improvement are the closures on the peekaboo panels - they are very loud/velcro, and magnetic closures would enable one to peek at the kid without fear of waking him/her up! Also, you really cannot hang too much from the stroller (it says as much on the stroller), as it is already pretty back-weighted - this is of particular importance with younger babies. The nearly full recline is really great for naps, and the mesh in the back is good for venting/breeze. We did not use the car seat attachment with ours,but friends have and it seems a bit top-heavy to me. The under-seat storage isn't bad in terms of space (we can stuff our diaper bag in there), but accessing it is pretty awkward. I often have to take down the front corner of the basket (velcro closure) in order to get something bulkier in there. So, it is not the stroller you would want for a big grocery haul, but if you want to go for a long walk, store a couple of things, and get in and out of your car/apartment easily, it is fantastic. Aesthetically, the colors are more vibrant than the 2013 GTs, and the canvas is really good quality. We have the green but the teal is really beautiful as well. My only lament is that Baby Jogger doesn't make the GT in amethyst (like their City Select). My reason for 4 stars is due to 1) ease of tipping backwards with smaller babies and 2) difficult-to-access under-seat storage. Overall, for the weight, compact size, functionality, ride, and appearance, it is a wonderful stroller for the price.
