Joie’s award-winning Trax family has just expanded with the launch of brand new 4-in-1 pushchair, the Versatrax.
The Versatrax is a multi-mode stroller that’s already been awarded the Red Dot award for its excellent design and functionality. We were keen to get hold of the buggy to take it out and about for a test spin.
Firstly, we love that the Versatrax can be used as a complete travel system. This means it’s a one-stop-shop solution suitable for newborns to toddlers up to 22kg. It pairs perfectly with Joie’s lightweight Ramble XL carrycot and the chassis also accommodates Joie’s range of infant carriers. The Versatrax can be used with other car seats using adaptors.
Once your little one has grown out of carrycot mode, the spacious seat unit offers both rearward and forward facing modes, depending on preference.
The ergonomic seat is designed with safety AND comfort in mind, with soft touch harness and calf support for little legs. The seat unit has three recline positions, which includes a full recline for those all-important naps on the go.
Tackles all terrains
The Versatrax’s puncture resistant foam-filled rubber tyres are designed to tackle all kinds of terrain with ease. The all-wheel suspension handles itself well over grass verges, broken pavements and even the odd pothole (yep – I really put it to the test!) without compromising the smoothness of the ride.
When it comes to assessing a stroller’s credentials, I’ve become a tiny bit obsessed with under-seat shopping baskets. My personal preference is the bigger and more accessible the better. The Versatrax certainly doesn’t disappoint. You won’t need to hang changing bags from the handlebars and struggle with shopping; the all-access storage basket is a decent size.
Easy to unfold and store
The buggy’s one-hand instant flash fold technology means it’s easy to collapse the buggy without needing to un-attach or re-position seats. You can do this in either rearward or forward positions. The Versatrax is even able to fold down into a compact trolley allowing you to stand the buggy upright. This mode is perfect for quick pitstops about town.
The stylish Versatrax is a solid and flexible stroller built to please. A sound investment if you’re looking for one product to see you through, and retails at a very respectable £300.
