This stroller is perfect for me. It's sturdy, but also very lightweight. The 35kg weight capacity is handy since my daughter is quite big for her age (2yo, 18,5kg), and all the other strollers of this type were too small for her, or with a lower weight capacity.

This stroller is truly spacious - I also love the leg rest, since my DD is also tall. I am also happy with the high-quality materials and the large hood. The full, plastic-covered peek-a-boo window is a plus for me as well because it allows me to have it open even when it's raining (unlike the mesh windows). The magnets holding the window open even when it's windy are an incredible idea too.

The wheels are large. The backrest is easy to recline. I like the handlebar adjustment system very nice too - and that goes for the design of the handle itself as well. A big plus would be the handlebar's pocket, and another for the brake located on the side of the handle, which is so incredibly practical.

The City Elite's price is higher, but it reflects the quality and functional design. I can tell because I went through multiple strollers and prams already. The only downside for me would be the shopping basket, which I find rather small. But it's nothing that would bother me that much. And a slight disadvantage to acknowledge is also the bumper bar that is only optional, meaning you need to pay extra for that. They could have had it included (with the price of the stroller, it seems fair). The bumper bar is adjustable in two height positions.

It's an excellent stroller/jogger for me - to sum it up. I don't think any other model will ever surpass this functionality. ๐Ÿ‘
