The Stoke Xplory V4 is the fourth generation of the unique high-end stroller and the best-known Stokke model, released in 2014. The iconic design with the single bar in the center of the chassis, the height-adjustable seat and the bag form of the shopping basket divides opinions and makes the Xplory the most popular as well as the most condemned urban stroller. The V4 version features a simplified folding button and the option of locking the front wheels. The front wheels are fastened on new, dark brackets instead of light greys. You can attach the cup holder directly to the handle without the need for an additional adapter. The bag can be attached directly to the chassis using integrated clips, without the need to wrap it around the central bar. The central brake situated at the bottom right was changed to a more rounded shape. The lower front Stokke logo has also been changed from the grey one to the highlighted orange one. The newer model doesn’t feature the rear lower logo at all.
The bucket seat is reversible, can be used as parent or forward-facing. You have three recline options when the seat is parent facing - upright, semi-reclined and a lie flat, and two positions - upright and semi-reclined way when forward-facing. When not reclined, the seat is very upright. The foot rest does not lift up, but its length can be adjusted. The seat is suitable for children approximately 6 months of age and older, however, using the optional newborn insert, it can be used from birth. You can put your newborn in the original, sold-separately Xplory carrycot divided in the baby’s feet area, or in an optional car seat. The stroller can be personalized by using seat textile kits (Style Kits) including the summer kit with a sun visor or the insulated winter kit with fur, as well as various other accessories. The V4’s True Black edition is one of the most well-known limited editions of the Xplory. The True Black was released in 2015 and features a black fabric and an all-black chassis.
