The Quinny Zapp Xtra is a successor of the popular Quinny Zapp
compact stroller. The main difference between the two is the Xtra’s seat, which can be used forward or rearward facing and can also be reclined. The new hood can be extended using an added sun visor. The bucket-type seat can be tilted to either a semi-reclined or a fully reclined position when rear facing, while when forward facing, it allows for three recline positions, including the upright sitting. Although the leg rest can’t be lifted up, you can push it out for a slightly higher position. To ensure comfort even for newborns, you have an option to attach either a car seat or the optional newborn insert. The Zapp Xtra can’t be paired with a carrycot since the manufacturer doesn’t approve of this combination.
To ensure a smoother ride, the improved chassis is equipped with a suspension system. The 3D fold is similar to the fold of the original Zapp, but the seat needs to be removed first. The small wheels are easily maneuverable; on smooth surfaces, such as those in shopping malls, you can steer this stroller even one-handed. When it comes to a more demanding terrain, don’t count on the Zapp Xtra. Its low weight doesn’t contribute to the stability, the manufacturer, therefore, advises against hanging any bags from the handles. The stroller was also released in limited versions: the pink or the blue South Beach, the Vivid Colour, the Graphic Purple, the Red Crackle, the Grey Crackle and the Quinny X Kenson (Kenson Signature designer collaboration).
