Maclaren is an old British company which was founded back in mid 1960s. When they wanted to create stroller that had European styling, American convenience, and reasonable price they have created the Maclaren Techno XT. I just love this stroller. It has so many different features that make it stand apart from everyday strollers that you see everywhere. A great feature is that it comes with a matching foot muff and rain cover that will keep your baby warm and away from the elements. You have the fluorescence stripe on the top of the hood and it is carried on through the foot muff as well. What you will notice is that it has a leather feel on the inside. It is very warm and very cozy. Also, you will notice that if you use the foot muff it gives you extra protection on the inside of your stroller. So, it is extra padding for the child. It also keeps them nice and warm. And if you are going out in the stores and it becomes quite warm all you have to do is unzip it. The whole thing just comes off. You also have all of your harness positions on it and the stroller will fold with the foot muff on it. The foot muff sells optionally for around $80. No doubt it is a nice accessory to go with this fabulous pushchair.
This stroller is meant for newborns and up. It features 6.5 inches wheels with a self-aligning front swivel unit, front and rear suspension. This superb pushchair also features extendable leg rest, a 4 recline positions, further ensuring the best comfort of your child.
The canopy on the Maclaren Techno XT is fantastic. It is absolutely huge and it rotates all the way down to completely block your child from the sun and elements. Plus it has a cute little picaboo window with UV protection so that you can see your child if you need to. There is a heavy pocket for your personal item on the back of the canopy as well as a decent size basket.
The handle bars are adjustable and ergonomically shaped. The 3 position adjustable handles will have moms and dads loving this stroller as much as their kids do.
Folding the stroller is fast and easy to do. You simply grab onto two back handles and it folds down flat. There is a locking mechanism that locks the stroller automatically when folded down. Its folding time is estimated to be 5 seconds.
This full sized stroller easily fits into trunk of an SUV and the compact cars. To unlock the stroller unlock the locking mechanism and pull up and you are ready to go.
The fabric is not only beautiful but it comes in many different colors. At 14.2 pounds it is really a lightweight stroller. It retails at around $300. So, if you are looking for a luxury stroller without the luxury price you should consider the Maclaren Techno XT. With its fabulous adjustable handles, great fabrics and great maneuverability I give it 5 stars.
