The Maclaren Techno Arc 2019 is an updated version of the beloved Techno model. Just like the Quest Arc, it got a single adjustable handle bar instead of the double handles. The canopy was also completely redesigned and now provides even more coverage and air ventilation.
They’ve also added memory foam to the leg rest for more comfort. Finally the front wheels are now single instead of double. Everything else stayed the same. It still features: roomy seat, one-hand full recline suitable for a newborn, 55 lbs weight limit, nice basket, adjustable leg rest and additional storage.
The 6″ wheels together with all-wheel suspension provide a smooth ride. Despite all the upgrades the Techno Arc weighs stayed the same around 15 lbs. There is still no travel system option, but you can use the seat to create a newborn safe cocoon-like environment or get a carrycot that inserts into the seat. The included head hugger and shoulder pads will provide additional comfort.
This buggy comes in two colors and retails for around $420 which is more expensive than the older version. I think it’s a great stroller, but the price is higher than I would like to see. If you don’t want to spend that much on an umbrella stroller, you can take a look at the Maclaren Quest Arc which costs only $345 and is almost identical to Techno Arc except for the smaller 5″ wheels.
