What strollers are compatible with the Nuna Pipa Lite?

What strollers are compatible with the Nuna Pipa Lite?

The Nuna Pipa has been our most popular infant car seat for years, and so many were excited to hear they were making an even lighter seat for 2017. Not only did they deliver with the Nuna Pipa Lite, they also added the Nuna Pipa Lite LX in 2018! The newest version, the LX, has their signature Dream Drape and is chemical flame retardant free.

We delved into the differences between all the seats just a bit ago, so you can find all the details here. That said, we’ve had so many inquiries into which strollers these car seats work with, so we’re breaking it all down for you!

In order to properly break this down, I’ll start by giving you a little background about the history of the adapters Nuna Infant Car Seats use.

You may have heard of Maxi Cosi while doing your research. They were the first major European car seat brand to gain a foothold in the US. Because of this, adapters for their seats are available for a surprisingly wide array of strollers. Any European car seat entering our market since then has made their car seats compatible with Maxi Cosi adapters (this includes Cybex and Nuna). These adapters are easy and cheap to produce, and while they might not be the easiest to use, they’re a good way to help a company gain a foothold here. Nuna recognizes this and offers an easier-to-use adapter for certain strollers, but I’ll explain that in a bit. For more details about the differences between adapters, feel free to check out this blog post.

If you love the Pipa, or the Pipa Lite (LX), the absolute easiest way to use the car seat on a stroller is with their ring adapter. Nuna only makes this adapter for three strollers: the Nuna Mixx2, the Bugaboo Cameleon3, and the Uppababy Vista. So these strollers are definitely your easiest bets.

But that doesn’t mean you’re limited to using those 3 strollers. Because of Nuna’s ability to use Maxi Cosi adapters, the Pipa and Pipa Lite (LX) are able to work with so many different strollers. The original Pipa is able to work with nearly all the strollers we sell because of this.

But something strange happens when the Nuna Pipa Lite and LX come into play. For some reason, which has so far been undiagnosed, both car seats have issues using Maxi Cosi adapters. What this essentially means is that we at Magic Beans refuse to suggest the Pipa Lite in conjunction with certain strollers unless we have physically confirmed that it fits. So far, we have tested both the Lite and the LX on almost all of the strollers we carry. Unfortunately, we are unable to try it on anything that we do not carry.

Before we get started, we wanted to remind you that these stroller brands haven’t necessarily tested these combinations with the Lite and Lite LX themselves, and therefore they might not officially recommend them. But rest assured we’ve tested everything ourselves at our stores.So here’s a running list of what does and does not work with the Pipa Lite and Pipa Lite LX.

  2. Hi Ashley! I believe we spoke over Facebook but yes, it does. I hope you get a chance to stop by our Fairfield location soon to try it out 🙂

  3. Hi, Is the Bugaboo Fox compatible with the Nuna Pipa Lite?

  4. Do the Maxi Cosi adapters for the Bugaboo Fox (buffalo) work with the Nuna Pipa Lite LX?

    (bugaboo maxi-cosi/cybex/nuna infant car seat adapter for buffalo + fox strollers)

  5. Do you know if the Maxi Cosi Dana works with the Nuna Pipa?

  6. Erica Rambukpotha

    Does the original Nuna Pipa work with the Maxi Cosi Dana For2 stroller? I have heard different answers.

  7. Can it fit on the Britax B-free stroller?

  8. Hi! Will the Nuna Pipa Lite LX work with the new Bugaboo Fox? Thank you!!!! 🙂

  9. I have the Stokke Pipa by Nuna infant car seat, will that work with the Uppababy Vista?

  10. Does the Nuna Pipa Lite work with Inglesina strollers? I know the Nuna Pipa does, but not sure about the lite.

  11. How about the regular nuna pipa? Is it compatible with the City Mini GT?

  12. Hi. I love your video reviews!

    Similar question to the above. Does the Nuna Pipa Lite LX seat work with the city jogger GT?

  13. Can you use the Nuna Pipa light LX ring on the city stroller? Or what strollers can you put this ring on? How does the car seat come off with the ring?

  14. The Stokke Pipa is only compatible with Stokke strollers

  15. We don’t carry that stroller, so we aren’t sure about its compatibility. Sorry about that!

  16. Nuna only makes ring adapters for the Nuna Mixx2, Bugaboo Cameleon3, and UPPAbaby Vista. You’ll release the Pipa from the ring adapter by squeezing the side buttons.

  17. Hey Melanie. So sorry but we don’t carry Inglesina strollers so we aren’t sure of their compatibility.

  18. Unfortunately not

  19. We don’t carry the Dana, so we aren’t sure about its compatibility.

  20. Hi!! I see on the list the uppa baby Vista stroller is compatible with the Nuna Pipa Lite LX, is that only the newer models? Or does the Nuna Pipa Lite LX fit with the 2012 uppa baby Vista ?? Thank you!!

  21. Hi Tabitha! Unfortunately not. It is compatible with Vista models 2015 and later.

  22. is the nuna pipa lite lx compatible with the joolz hub stroller?

  23. The Hub definitely works with the original Pipa with this adapter: https://mbeans.com/joolz-hub-stroller-car-seat-adapter-nuna-cybex-maxi-cosi?DeptID=400 However we don’t have our hands on the Hub yet, and we haven’t been able to test it with the Pipa Lite and Pipa Lite LX. It SHOULD work, but we aren’t 100%.
