Comfort

Among others, the seat is one of the most important parts of any stroller because it is instrumental towards the level of comfort that it can provide. In the case of Contours Options Elite Tandem Stroller, it has up to 7 different seating configurations, allowing you to choose which one is most comfortable for your children. The babies can be seated facing you, facing each other, or both looking out, among other positions.

The seats also have proper cushioning for added comfort. One thing that most parents liked about the stroller is how the seat can be reclined in an almost flat position. Theoretically speaking, however, this will depend on how much space is being taken by the legs of the baby. It is also a good thing that it comes with a comfortable headrest, as well as customizable leg rest.

The canopy is also a great addition to this double stroller. Although the size of the canopy is not as large as those that are found in other models, it is fairly decent. It also has a peekaboo and mesh window panel, which encourages more ventilation.

The wheels of a stroller also has a lot to do about the comfort that it promotes babies. In this product, the wheels are made from rubber and comes with an excellent suspension system, making it able to promote a comfortable ride even if the surface is uneven.

The harness comes with easy to adjust straps to accommodate the growth of your children. The stroller is also designed with dual foot brakes, making it easy to put it into a stop when needed.

Parent-friendliness

Since the wheels are made from rubber, one thing that many parents would like is the fact that they would never go flat. This is unlike in the case of air-filled tires. The material of the tires also make it easy to move around, although more effort will be required in rougher surfaces as this is not an all-terrain double stroller.

When it comes to folding, it may not be the easiest, but it is fairly simple. Once you have already remove the seats, it will be converted into a simple frame that is effortless to fold. It has an automatic locking mechanism and can also stand on its own. Even if it is folded, however, its size can still be bulky, which might make it require more storage space.

You do not have to be worried about losing access to some of the essentials you need to bring along, such as feeding bottles, toys, and diapers. With the large storage basket, you can bring with you what you and your baby needs. Additionally, there are also mesh pockets and cup holder.
