"Best double pushchair!…"
We just purchased this pushchair, as the Graco Stadium duo pushchair just wasn't cutting it. The Urban Detour is a DREAM to push, lighter than a shopping trolley and I have a 2 year old and heavy 8 month old I'm carting around! lol I would highly recommend this pushchair!Read moreLess

I liked the look and style of this pushchair. It was good value for money and has everything you need included in the package.
Very comfy and spacious for the kiddies and a dream for walking and jogging.
BUT it is really large. Didn't fit through my front door or my close security door, so to get outside we had to fold it up which wasn't practical if raining.Read moreLess

This is great! It turns on a pin folds easily and is so good for two children of different ages. I didn't want to spend a fortune and this does everything I want it to!I dog walk with it, visit friends and even shop - not little village shops!
It is large though - takes up a lot of bootspace!Read moreLess

"I bought this pushchair after having my 3rd baby by…"
I bought this pushchair after having my 3rd baby by c/s. I knew that Id have a lot of walking, up and down kerbs and up hill, and wanted something that would'nt weigh a tonne.
Its a delight to push, bicycle wheels making kerbs hassel free.
Swivel wheel is also a plus for turning it, making it seem weightless.
For me the drawbacks are:
1. folding it...Its a knack that I never quite got the hang of
2. Big and bulky in a car boot
3. Weighs a tonne when lifting it either in/out of car
4. position of seats, only two, and its a 'toggle' system, which never felt overly secure
5. If you leave it in the car for a couple of days without using it, the wheels need re-pumped, which I only discovered AFTER I had it out and kids in it.
5. Does'nt fit through most standard front doors
However, even with all these gripes, I was still very happy with it, and when I looked at what else was available to me at that time, I'm glad I chose it.Read moreLess
"Reviewers found this very easy to push: "Easier than any…"
Reviewers found this very easy to push: "Easier than any single buggy I've used, it glides like a dream!" It's "very comfortable for the kids" with "big wide seats" and "it's very hard-wearing". Some cautioned, "it's a bit wider than some side by side pushchairs - so do measure your front door" and "it's a job to lift as it's so bulky and heavy". But everyone was delighted with the price: "It's brilliant value for money" as it "includes all the extras in the original price".Read moreLess

"It is a good buggy for going walking. If you…"
It is a good buggy for going walking. If you were to go shopping it is a struggle as the basket underneath is tiny, by the time you have your change bag under there is no room at all, however you can put changebag over the handles to get "2" bags under., Would benefit having more than a 2 position lieback for the babies, it is either upright sitting or flat back, maybe an in betweeny one would be better.Read moreLess

Very smooth, lots of room in the seats, lovely looking. Downsides are very heavy/bulky to carry, and wont fit through standard doorways.Read moreLess

It is a very nice buggy to go on long walks with, comfortable too.
Downfall was it took up the whole boot space in our car and we have a mondeoRead moreLess

Very easy to steer and push. Perfect for walking over rough ground, ie walking the dog, but not ideal for doorways as quite a large frameRead moreLess

Very easy to manoeuver but bulky when folded for travelling. Could also be narrowerRead moreLess
"Dont think u can get it in your front door…"
Dont think u can get it in your front door unless u live in a mansion but.. u do get footmuffs & raincover with this double, plus although I do not like "seat" sit up as in toggle effect, so u can choose what angle they sit - they r never happy, so constantly leaning forward, it looks & feels like u r always fretting that the child/ren r going to lean that too much forward.
Its an absolute DREAM to push & can spin on a "sixpence", but u have to have FOUND the clip that will allow u 2 change from fixed 2 swivel. More hassle than its worth
Overall, it ends up middle of the road as in should i/not? no idea, but glad i got rid of mine & opt'd for something else
"this is a brilliant double buggy if you do a…"
this is a brilliant double buggy if you do a lot of walking and if you have 2 kids of different ages as you don't really feel the weight difference.
the only neg things about it is that it's not the easiest buggy to fold and get through a standard front door even when folded. also it's a bit of a
pain when you get a puncture.
other than that, it's fantasticaly easy to push and has loads of room underneath for shopping.Read moreLess
"Best of the double buggies, but shopping can be tricky…"
Best of the double buggies, but shopping can be tricky as the width makes doorways and aisles tricky!Read moreLess
