Meta description: Find out why the Maclaren brand rules the roost when it comes to high-end premium single and double strollers.
When it comes to strollers, you have quite a few options. But in general, they can be divided into two – the affordable ones and the premium strollers. While the premium models by definition cost more, they do offer a certain quality that the cheaper models can’t match. Their features are more advanced and they’re built to last for a very long time. This description fits the Maclaren double stroller models very well, especially the Triumph and Techno models.
So what’s so special about these strollers? Here are a few facts about the Maclaren prams that will make you realize you’re getting your money’s worth.
The Maclaren Double Umbrella Stroller is Compact
Maclaren specializes in making “umbrella” strollers. That is, these strollers can be folded up like your stereotypical umbrella, which makes them much more portable and very easy to store away.
In fact, the Maclaren brand is famous for this feature specifically, since they were the first to come out with this design more than 50 years ago back in 1965. They came out with the revolutionary Maclaren B-01 Baby Buggy, which only weighed 3 kilograms and its design enabled you to fold it like an umbrella with just one hand. This innovation became so iconic that the model is a permanent fixture in both the Design Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA).
So what does this mean for you as a parent? It means that bringing the stroller along with you isn’t a problem at all, even if the stroller is designed for 2 infants. And when they’re setup for use, they’re still compact enough that you can fit it in through most doors. Finally, the quality of the build is amazing—it even comes with a lifetime warranty!
Maclaren Triumph Double Stroller
The Triumph is an all-around double stroller, and it’s a feature-packed buggy that’s eminently suitable if you have 2 babies to bring along with you. First you don’t have to worry at all about safety, since like all the Maclaren buggies it adheres to the Maclaren Global Safety Standard. What this means is that any buggy produced by Maclaren will meet or even exceed the most stringent safety standards found anywhere in the world. So that means it has a harness system, the brake pedal is highly visible, there’s an independent secondary locking system, and there’s a tether strap too. It’s also made of aircraft-grad aluminum, so durability isn’t a concern either. It can even handle up to 110 pounds, which is a little bit better than the carrying capacity of other double strollers out there.
Then the buggy is also very comfy for the babies. It comes with a UPF 50+ sun visor, along with an oversized waterproof hood that you can quickly get out to cover both babies at once. And you can offer a very comfy ride, since the wheels come with shock-absorbing suspension. The seats can recline in several positions, and there’s even a cushion for leg support.
And this is easy for you to use as well. To start with, you won’t even have any sort of assembly problem at all, even if you’re the worst at DIY assembly. That’s because it comes to already fully assembled.
It’s very light, so you’d have no problem lugging it around. It even comes with a carry handle. The handles come with a cushioned foam grip, and it also comes with a built-in storage pocket. The front wheels swivel when you just want to go on a stroll, but you can lock the wheels if you’re going jogging.
Maclaren Buggy Stroller
Maclaren delights in partnering with other famous design brands, such as Lacoste and Philip Starck. This single stroller is a product of its collaboration with BMW, so it comes with premium automotive features.
The bonus features include a wind-resistant cover, a Buggy ID tag, shoulders pads and seat liner for the baby, and even a heat-reflective basket. This is the ultimate in premium foldable strollers, and there’s nothing quite like it. It fully deserves having those BMW insignia details as a sign of its superiority.
Of course, this comes with a BMW-like price tag (it costs as much as the premium Maclaren double stroller), but you have to pay to get the best.
Maclaren Triumph Umbrella Stroller
Now if you want most of the features of the Maclaren Buggy without having to pay through the nose, this Triumph single stroller is very good, and way better than most of the other single strollers in the market. Basically, you get everything that’s included in the Triumph double stroller, except obviously for the extra seat for the second baby.
Thus, it comes to you already fully assembled, it’s made from aircraft-grade aluminum, and you get a lot of extra features. This stroller folds, and you have the 5-point harness, foo brakes, sun canopy, and waterproof hood. The front swivel wheels are lockable, you have shock-absorbing suspension, and the shoulder harness is height adjustable. This really does give you a great value for your money.
Maclaren Twin Techno Double Stroller
Finally, we have the Twin Techno. It’s a bit heavier than the Triumph, and that’s because it has more features. It has the Headhugger and Shoulder pads for greater infant comfort, and the Built-in Newborn Safety System for ultimate protection.
It offers one-hand adjustment for the 4-position recline seat, as you probably often have only one hand free when you’re out with your babies. The handle even has 2 possible positions. There’s also an extendable leg rest with Memory Position. It’s even compatible with the Universal Carrycot.
Basically, if you want the very best for your baby (and admittedly for yourself), this is what you get. So what if you pay more? Obviously, you get a lot more in return. You maximize the comfort of your infants, and you minimize the trouble and frustration you experience when you’re out with your darling babies.
If you’re in need of a double stroller, it’s a good idea to save up for the Maclaren double stroller or for any Maclaren buggy for that matter. Whether you have one or two babies to take with you, this stroller offers safety, comfort, and convenience for you and your kids.
