The UPPAbaby G-Lite 2018 is a light umbrella stroller that is a smaller and lighter version of the G-Luxe model. Weighing only 11 lbs, it’s perfect for running errands and public transit.
The narrow frame allows you easily navigate in narrow store aisles and small spaces. It’s very easy to push even with a heavy child in the seat.
It rolls on 4.7″ double plastic wheels that can tackle some of the mommy terrain like grass or mulch. While the all-wheel suspension absorbs some of the bumps, G-Lite is clearly designed for flat surfaces.
It has a roomy mesh seat that sits at a slight angle. For 2018 they’ve added a small zipper recline, but you still have to use it from 6 months. Honestly, I was very surprised to see a high 55 lbs weight limit. It should take you through all the toddler years without a problem. BTW, there is NO TRAVEL SYSTEM option which I didn’t expect to see on 11 lbs stroller.
The large basket underneath the seat (for an umbrella model) can fit a medium size diaper bag. Of course I wouldn’t go grocery shopping with it, but you can fit all of the baby essentials (up to 10 lbs).
I was also able to attach an organizer to the handle bars for small essentials and a cup holder. BTW, the cup holder is included, but it fills more secure and easier to access my coffee from the organizer. Anyways, if you take a 55 lbs child and add another 10 lbs for the stuff in the basket, this baby can carry a lot of stuff! Great for a day at the park when you are just too tired to carry all that crap. LOL.
Another feature that a love in G-Lite is a large updated UPF 50+ canopy with pop-out sunvisor. Because the canopy is not attached to the back of the seat, you can bring it forward making sure your child is shielded from every angle.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars because although it has a very small recline, it’s a high quality umbrella stroller that is very inexpensive. You can get 2018 model in two colors for around $199. It comes with a cup holder.
