The Jane Powertwin enjoys somewhat legendary status here in the US. Widely thought to be the best double stroller that isn’t yet available on this side of the ocean, stroller afficionados speak in reverant whispers of the Powertwin’s narrow footprint, smooth handling and two full-size reclining seats. We’d heard much about the Powertwin, so we were eager to sell it as soon as it became available in this country. Fortunately, that day is almost here. Jane has established a US distributor, and they will be releasing products as soon as they can pass the required safety tests.
We’ve just learned that the Powertwin should be available for sale by the end of April. We don’t have too many other details, though we’re working on those. When I saw the Powertwin at the ABC Kids Expo in September, I was very surprised by the easy handling of the stroller. In general, we don’t carry tandem strollers, based on negative feedback from parents about how difficult they are to push. This is the first tandem stroller I’ve encountered that is worth considering. The stadium-style seating makes the stroller a bit shorter than traditional tandems, and the construction is solid and well-balanced, which helps for a smooth ride.
We are getting a lot of interest in this stroller, and I will keep updating here as I get more information. Please feel free to post questions and I will do my best to respond.
