Premium pushchair brand Joolz is always on the money when it comes to stylish strollers. The Joolz Geo2 has been around for some time now, but the launch of the Geo2 stroller in Marvellous Green, is just well – marvellous! I couldn’t wait to take a look at the pushchair in its duo format as a solution for getting out and about easily with two children under two.
The Joolz Geo2 duo arrived in two cardboard boxes. In the main box, I found everything required for a singular pram or buggy. In the second box, were the all-important extras in order to covert the stroller from a mono to a duo transport system, with the addition of a second seat or bassinet. The build was easy. Everything seemed to be very intuitive, with baskets, seats and bassinets clicking easily into place.
The Geo2 transport system can be used in a number of clever configurations, depending on the ages of your children. This is thanks to its with reversible carrycot and seat unit.
You can mix and match the bassinets and stroller seats to suit your family’s needs, making it ideal for twins, or two children of different ages.
It’s worth noting that the Geo2 is also travel system compatible, with car seat adaptors sold as extras.
The Geo2 is a beautiful stroller, available in a whole host of colours, but my favourite has to be the new green.
The streamlined silver chassis against the sophisticated crisp green canvas with contrasting brown leatherette handle and bumper bar turned heads in the high street.
There’s also a fabulous range of accessories available, a must for winter months. You’ll find everything from matching changing bags, footmuffs and parasols. Accessories are sold separately.
The stroller benefits from four-wheel suspension while its large EVA puncture-proof tyres won’t let you down. There is absolutely no fun being stranded with a punctured pushchair tyre, and needing AA assistance to get home.
You can be reassured that the Geo2 has been built to tackle every terrain flawlessly, while the babas enjoy a smooth ride. This is a buggy that navigates kerbs excellently – you don’t have to push your whole body weight down onto the handlebar to tilt the front wheels up to get up and down off of pavements. It seems to just ‘know’. It’s comfortable, sturdy, and effortless to manoeuvre, even with two children on board.
The adjustable handlebar can be steered with one-hand which means you have one free for those times when you need it!
In mono mode, there’s space to slot the XL under-seat storage basket, and my oh my, it is admirably HUGE!
I was a little disappointed that there isn’t the option to keep the basket in place once the stroller has converted to a duo – but with one child seated above the other, you can see why that’s not possible.
Instead, Joolz offer an alternative by way of the Joolz Duo sidepack which is a slick-looking bag that attaches to either side of the buggy. The side pack also doubles up as a shoulder bag/change bag, which will no doubt come in handy.
The ergonomic seat has three recline positions brilliant for toddlers wanting to be upright and for those that like to nap on the go.
The extendable UPF50+ sun hood is perfect for shielding little ones against the elements. I love the carrycot’s hidden see-through ventilation panel, so on warm sunny days baby can benefit from an extra flow of fresh air through the breathable mesh.
The only thing I’ve found tricky is the magnetic harness clip – if you’ve got an uncooperative child on your hands, getting the belt fastened can be a bit of chore. Such a small criticism in the scheme of things – as this buggy really is the business.
The upper level is set to table height for both carrycot and seat, which is really handy if you need the stroller to double up as a highchair, for any meals on-the-go.
It’s inevitable that while in Duo mode it’s a fairly sizeable stroller, however, the Geo2 is compact with its clever one-motion folding technology. There’s also a transport lock to enable even more portability when you’re on the go. The stroller fits easily into our regular sized boot, everything collapses down while the chassis tucks into itself nicely, perfect for storing.
Award-winning Dutch brand Joolz is known for its ergonomic, luxurious and comfortable designs, and the Geo2 is no exception. A beautiful, built-to-last stroller designed to make your life easier; this product offers the ultimate in practicality and longevity. It’s a stroller with brains as well as brawn, and one that will grow with you and your family, making it well worth the investment. A pushchair you’ll be proud to push around town.
