Inglesina Trilogy is a luxury stroller with a reversible seat and easy one-hand umbrella-like fold. It is designed for busy parents who live in an urban environment.
Take it shopping, public transit, or for a quick stroll around town while looking stylish and chic. The sealed-bearing wheels are not all-terrain but will handle some mommy terrain if you lock the front wheels.
You will really like the roomy reversible seat with adjustable leg rest and one-hand lever recline. The deep recline can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs.
The canopy is absolutely huge! It goes down all the way to the leg rest and has the follow-the-sun option. The large basket can fit a lot of groceries. It’s a little hard to access. It also features a flip-flop-friendly brake, and a 5-point harness, and comes with single or double handlebars.
The one-hand fold is pretty compact for a reversible seat stroller. It has also a standing fold and an automatic lock. You can convert Trilogy to a travel system by replacing the seat with a car seat, or a beautiful pram by replacing it with a bassinet. This model weighs only 21 lbs which is lightweight for a stroller with a reversible seat.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because, despite all the great features above, it has a non-adjustable handlebar, hard-to-access basket, high weight, and small wheels. I think it’s a great option for parents who want to buy only one stroller.
You can use it with a bassinet for the first 6 months and then replace it with a reversible seat. It retails for around $499 and comes with a cup holder, footmuff, rain cover, and bumper bar.
It has a large canopy with a medium size sunvisor that goes down all the way to the leg rest COMPLETELY shielding your child from sun, wind, or rain. Also, the canopy can be unzipped in the middle to become a follow-the-sun canopy.
I absolutely LOVE it! That’s how all canopies should be. It has a medium size peekaboo window which is made out of see-through plastic with no closure. I wish there was a magnetic closure, but it’s such a minor thing, I am not going to take any points away.
The non-adjustable handlebar is located 40″ from the ground. It’s kind of a standard height. If you are very tall, test it first. This stroller is available with a single handle or two handles. I personally prefer a single handlebar because I often have my phone or a dog leash on the other hand.
The seat is 12″ wide with an 18″ seat back and a measurement of 23″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. This is a very standard seat size that will fit a tall child. It has a ONE-HAND lever recline (no annoying strap system) that goes to almost a flat position suitable for newborns.
The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 33 lbs. To reverse the seat all you need to do is pull the levers on both sides of the seat, wing it around, and snap it back in. It has the same deep reline even in the parent-facing mode.
The bumper bar is swing-away and removable. It has a nice cover that can be unzipped for easy cleaning. No foam! You know your child will have a bite to test the bumper bar. I hate when kids end up with a mouth full of foam.
It has an adjustable padded 5-point harness with not so hard buckle.
The adjustable leg rest has two positions: up for smaller babies and down for older children.
The basket is a good size but is very HARD to access because of the crossbar in the back. You can fit a medium size bag in it or stuff in small baby essentials.
The best way to get into the basket is from the side or front. The crossbar in the back completely blocks the access.
The parking pedal located on the right wheel will lock both rear wheels in place. It’s flip-flop-friendly.
It rolls on four hard rubber wheels with 8″ wheels in the back and 7″ wheels in the front. That means you will never get a flat. The wheels have ball bearings making it easy to push.
The front wheels are 360-degree swivel wheels with the ability to lock straight for mommy terrain. I like that the locks for the wheels are located ON THE SIDE of the frame so you don’t have to bend down to lock each wheel. Easy!
This is a smooth surface stroller that will not do that well on rough terrain. It’s designed for going shopping, graveling, or running errands around town. Not that great for long walks in the park.
This model has an umbrella-like fold and can be folded with just one hand. All you need to do is push a red safety button and then pull up on the handle located in the back above the crossbar till the stroller locks in place.
There is an automatic lock. You can fold it with the seat attached or removed. Of course, it will be more compact if you remove the seat first, but it’s an extra step. It does have a standing fold and if you lock the wheels, you can roll it behind you like a piece of luggage.
There is also a handle on the side for easy carrying. The fold is pretty compact for a reversible seat stroller. The folded dimensions are 14″ H x 38″ L x 19″ W, but is bulky for an umbrella model.
It doesn’t come with a bassinet, but you can purchase it separately. You can replace the seat with a luxury bassinet, and voila! You got a pram. No additional adapters are needed.
Not many strollers have that option. The bassinet has a large canopy and a pop-out sunvisor that will provide your baby with plenty of shade. It has a carrying handle that is hidden under the material on the canopy.
The nice thing about this bassinet is that it’s free-standing so you can use it at home as a carrycot.
Cup holder. INCLUDED! The cup holder is located on the side above the basket, which is a unique place for it. Most strollers have it on the side of the frame near the handlebar. I like the above-the-basket location because your child will not be able to see the cup.
My daughter Sophia always wants to take my smoothie or a shake if I put it into the cup holder. I don’t mind to share unless it’s right before the dinner time. If she doesn’t get it her way, there will be a tantrum for sure.
Anyway, this cup holder is a little on the smaller side. I would say it’s designed more for a bottle. It’s expendable, but don’t expect to fit a big cup in there.
Rain cover. INCLUDED!
Footmuff. INCLUDED! A matching footmuff can be easily attached to the bumper bar and will protect your little one during cold winter months.
-Hard to access basket. Although the basket is a good size, it’s hard to access because of the bar in the back.
-Small wheels. The wheels are only 8″ and 7″ which are kind of small. Don’t expect to go for long walks. It will be a bumpy ride since the wheels are designed for mostly flat surfaces.
-Non-adjustable handle bar. It’s odd, but I’ve seen some adjustable double handlebars on European Trilogy strollers. Maybe Inglesina decided to introduce only models with non-adjustable handlebars in the US. I don’t know… I am a little confused.
Here is a great video review from Baby Gizmo.
