Baby Jogger Versa
Baby Jogger Versa is a very versatile pushchair. It comes with a parent or forward facing seat and it can be used from newborn with an additional carrycot or car seat adaptors.
The Versa seat is what surprises many the most. For a reversible seat it's massive! Will easily fit a 4 year old and they will be comfortable in it.
The seat has 3 recline positions both parent and forward facing and also an adjustable footrest (which can also be made longer) and a huge sun canopy with not one but 2 (!) peak a boo windows!
The handle on the Versa pivots up and down and there's a position that should suit parents of all heights.
The Versa's brake may surprise some as you won't find it anywhere near the rear axle. It's actually a handbrake located on the right hand side of the handle and it's very easy to use. I found it great as my 3 year old couldn't play with it like normally does with a foot brake.
The wheels are small 8'' hard rubber wheels. There's suspension on all 4 wheels that actually work! The front wheels can be locked straight for going over uneven ground, pebbles, grass etc.
One of my favourite features on the Versa is the huge shopping basket! It's one of the biggest available on the market!
The Versa's popularity is mostly due to the fact that even though it's a full size pushchair with a reversible seat, it still has the amazing one hand pull Baby Jogger fold with the seat in situ!!! You simply press the button on the seat next to the recline mechanism and the seat fold in on itself like an oyster, then you just pull the red strap and the frame folds in your hand. The end result is rather long but very flat package. It's heavy though at 12 kg so I found it on the heavy side to actually carry in one hand. It's still easy enough to put in the boot of the car though :)
The Versa is incredibly smooth to push. I was very surprised at how well it handled our uneven pavements. The all wheel suspension actually works. The wheels being hard rubber are smooth but tend to pick up little stones and look quite worn after just a few walks. I found the Versa to be very light to push with my heavy 3 year old in it and some shopping too.
