Stroller weight is a nebulous concept – we tend to think of items as light or heavy, and not in terms of their specific poundage. So, to give you a better sense of what we mean by "lightweight stroller," especially as it applies to the new 19-pound 2011 Quinny Zapp Xtra, here are some things that weigh about 19 pounds:
76 sticks of butter;
16 cans of soup;
14 paperback books;
3 live chickens;
two above-average newborn babies;
a car tire;
a small beagle; and,
a small woman... on the Moon.
That's pretty light! Here are a few other things that make the Quinny Zapp Xtra a great choice for your urban-strolling lifestyle:
- Versatility: The new Quinny Zapp adapts to the needs of babies at all stages, from birth through toddlerhood. For the littlest travelers, just click in the easy adapters included with the stroller, and attach your Maxi-Cosi infant car seat.
When your baby is ready for a seat, you can attach the Zapp's seat facing you, so you can keep an eye on him and he can admire his lovely mama (or handsome daddy). A full recline in both front-facing and rear-facing configurations lets babies both small and large snooze in comfort, and three other configurations (two front, one rear) prop up your child to gaze at the world. You can remove the seat to reposition it with one hand, and when you click it back into place, a reassuring "clunk" lets you know that it's securely locked.
- Extremely compact fold: Unlike three live chickens, it's very easy to fit the 2011 Quinny Zapp Xtra in the trunk of your car. Just click off the seat and follow the 3 – 2 – 1 indicators on the frame to collapse it to an impressively minimal size – 35" x 16" x 10".
- Modern style: No other stroller on the market looks quite like the Quinny Zapp! It has a neat wedge-shaped frame, an oval seat, and a very small wheel footprint – it hardly takes up more room in an elevator than you do. The gorgeous new colors complete the Zapp's totally fresh and unique look: Rebel Red, Pink Emily, Rocking Black, and Brown Boost.
Reviewers praise the maneuverability of the Quinny Zapp Xtra: the small footprint and lockable swiveling front wheels make it easy to navigate grocery stores, subways, and other crowded environments in the city and suburbs. Suspension on the rear wheels help to keep sidewalk bumps from reaching your little passenger, and the padded five-point harness will keep them securely in place regardless of the terrain.
The 2011 Quinny Zapp Xtra also has a new and improved sun canopy that offers very generous coverage. Use the new under-seat shopping basket to tote your groceries and other necessities.
Wherever you take your new Quinny Zapp Xtra, your baby will be traveling in modern, comfort and style. It's convenient, it's cool, it's cute... and you don't have to travel to the Moon to keep things light.
Easy To Setup, Durable, Comfortable, Easy To Steer, Sturdy, Easily Stowed
Lacks Storage, Could be more lightweight
We have had this stroller for some time now and love how versatile it is. We use it with our toddler currently, but plan to use it with our second child as well. I like how it grows with your child and how easy it is to fold/unfold and steer. You could literally steer with a pinky if you had to. It has a pretty small footprint when folded. Not that it is incredibly heavy but I do wish it was more lightweight and had a larger storage area. You can fit maybe a blanket and a stuffed animal in the bottom basket but that's the extent of it. However, as a solution we just use a Stokke diaper bag that clips to the handles and use that as "storage" instead. It's still a great stroller; no buyer's remorse here.
