lightweight stroller for large toddler

Can anyone recommend a lightweight stroller suitable for a large toddler? My little girl is 17 months and 30lb plus so she needs quite a deep seat. We have a Bugaboo but are finding the seat doesn’t go far back enough and she ends up slipping down and resting on the straps which is very uncomfy for her! We also need one with high handles as we are both quite tall. I am feeling totally bamboozled by all the internet reviews and my DD is not the best at being taken shopping and trying out pushchairs!

Thank you

baby jogger? elite or clsassic easier to push though as air tyres, but a bigger pushchair - lots of room for your little one though! I found the baby jogger city mini harder to push as child got older - but others haven't? I prefer air tyres when they are bigger!

baby jogger summit xc is even nicer. Or micralite superlight is ideal for larger kids if something smaller is needed.

Thank you for those ideas; I hadn't heard of any of these so I will start searching the net for more info!

these aren't strollers though. I suppose the micralite is, its a lovely push, i loved mine, currently packed away for dc4!

maclaren xt is a good sized stroller for a toddler too and has high adjustable handles. the micralite handles adjust in angle too.
