Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 Review

by Jason

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 is a sleek, compact, easy to use stroller.

Although the baby jogger city mini gt2 doesn’t have a reversible seat, it still has a ton of other advantages over the more popular 4-wheeled varieties. It has a weight of about 22 pounds and a holding capacity of 66 pounds. For perspective, a 4yr old weighs about 40 pounds on average.

This is as a result of the fact that the size of the seat has been increased, because this model of stroller is 3-wheeled, leaving extra space for a larger seat.

more brief details

The canopy of the baby jogger city mini gt2 can be adjusted to go higher. This is designed to leave enough room for older children. This in combination with a full recline and a strong leg rest will assure your child of maximum comfort.

What I enjoyed a lot about using the stroller is the easy fold mechanism, which has long been a favorite of many parents. To activate it, in case you’re not familiar with it, all you need to do is pull the strap of the seat upwards and then the chassis of the whole stroller will collapse into the middle.

In the older version, there were cases of accidental folding, however, in this model, the problem has been addressed by adding a pair of extra straps which could be buttoned to the rear frame.

The fabric of the baby jogger mini is prone to sun fading over time, however, it’s still sturdy. It’s also quite a hassle to remove whenever washing is required.

The wheels are 8.5 inches and the entire unit is ruggedly built to withstand what a wide variety of small and even mid sized strollers out there won’t dare to withstand. It has added shock absorption to withstand a good amount of vibration and shaking.

More about the folding and portability

The stroller can collapse into a neat, and easy to carry piece of equipment with a lift of the hand. Although it weighs 21 pounds, which isn’t the lightest, for an all-terrain stroller, it’s actually a decent choice.

Trust me, its ease of carrying will very much come in handy  when the elevator is no longer working and you need to move your stroller through the stairs. The stroller folds really flat, and like most reversible seats, there’s no fuss about removing the seats whenever you want to fold it.

More on the wheels and maneuverability

This stroller has a special feature called forever air rubber tyres. That is, as the name goes, a set of wheels you won’t have to go through the trouble of pumping, looking out for tire pressure, puncture, etc.

There’s also a suspension unit in all the tires, making it glide through bumps with ease. If you’re going through a rough terrain, you can choose to lock the front wheels so it won’t swivel once the stroller starts vibrating. It also comes with a hand operated brake system.

The storage capabilities

This aspect isn’t really the forte of this stroller as many parents have complained about how much of a hassle it is to reach the under basket. Although you can access it from the front, where the leg support is, the opening is a bit small. You’ll have to struggle a bit to put something large in there.

If you’re looking for a separate compartment to keep smaller items like wallets, and phones, you might be a bit disappointed. You can make do with the pocket behind the seat though.

Should you buy the baby jogger city mini gt2 stroller?

Absolutely, you should go for this brand. Despite the fact that it might have a few flaws such as some structural weaknesses including plastic discs in the folding mechanism, and loss of the handle crossbar, the shock absorption mechanism has been greatly improved upon. Compare this to what you see on the market with regards small sized strollers and you’ll clearly appreciate how much of a unit this stroller is.
