UPPAbaby Cruz is a lightweight stroller with reversible seat. The Cruz model is little sister of a Vista since it is lighter and more compact. It’s designed for on-the-go parents who live in an urban environment. You can take it to the store, shopping mall or doctor’s office. It has small wheels and narrow frame that makes it very easy to navigate store aisles and tackle tough sidewalks. It is NOT your all-terrain regular stroller. You will have a hard time taking it to the park to walk a trail. It is not designed for going over grass, gravel or mulch.
Cruz is somewhere in between the umbrella stroller and your regular stroller. The wheels are too small for a regular stroller and at the same time, it is too heavy (22 lbs) to be an umbrella stroller.
Usually parents have two stroller: a heavier all-terrain stroller that you can take to the park or for a stroll around the neighborhood, and a lighter one that you would take to the mall, doctor’s office or on the plane. For parents who want to save money by buying only one stroller, Cruz is a great choice. It will definitely get you through the first 3 years. The roomy seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. You can also convert it into a travel system by getting an infant car seat adapter.
