Mamas & Papas have been on the roll lately with their strollers. The Armadillo Flip XT became a big hit right after the release. The Urbo2 got over 20 updates and is a totally different stroller now. The Sola2 MTX is now rolling on new all-terrain wheels that can handle a lot of different terrain.
When designing these strollers Mamas & Papas wanted them to be very versatile and last you from the first days and till your child is a toddler and does’t need a stroller anymore.
What makes these models stand out from the crowd is the compact fold, lightweight, and the ability to transform into a travel system, or a pram.
You can use them for everyday life like running errands, going to the park, mall, doctor’s office, or just a stroller around town. Any of them can be your ONLY stroller.
Because all these models have so many great features like, it could be very hard to choose the right one. Hope this side-by-side stroller comparison chart will help you to make a decision.

Which stroller to choose
All these strollers has a lot of the same features like reversible seat, adjustable padded 5 point harness, adjustable handle bar, adjustable leg rest, huge canopy, mesh panel in the canopy, all-wheel suspension, deep one-hand recline, travel system option, bassinet option, and flip-flop-friendly brake. But let’s look a the differences.
Armadillo Flip XT
Out of all three, Armadillo Flip XT is the best for urban lifestyle because of the super compact one-hand fold and light weight. The one-hand fold and standing fold makes it very easy and convenient to use public transit because you can hold a stroller in one hand while holding your baby in another.
The menuverability is great and the ride is very smooth thanks to all-wheel suspension. The only minus is that it does NOT have a bumper bar. Why couldn’t Mamas&Papas add a bumper bar like they did to other models, I don’t know. Overall, fantastic stroller that will last your for many years. Here is my full review »
The Sola2 MTX has the largest wheels out of all of them that are perfect for going off road. The air-filled rear wheels and all-wheel suspension will provide your child with a smooth ride even on the rough terrain. This model is great for long walks at the park or around town. While the fold is not as compact as on Flip XT model, it very compact for a reversible seat stroller.
It’s even more compact than on Nuna Mixx which is one of the main competitors. I was pleasantly surprise to see a light weight of only 22 lbs despite the all-terrain wheel update. Most strollers with the same features weigh around 25 lbs. The bumper bar is INCLUDED! It could be your ONLY stroller and should last your from birth and up toddler years with no problem. My review is coming soon. Here is my full review »
The Urbo2 is probably the most stylish out of three. It’s aluminum frame and leather covered handle bar and bumper bar look so classy and chic. The Urbo2 is a city stroller that you would take everywhere you go like running errands, grocery store, mall, or park. The fold is almost as compact as on Flip XT, but it’s not as convenient, does not have a standing fold and you will need both hands to fold it.
Despite the small wheels, the maneuverability is outstanding! The all-wheel suspension helps to absorb all of the bumps making the ride much smoother. It also weighs only 20 lbs which is very lightweight for a reversible seat stroller. You will be happy to know that the bumper bar is INCLUDED! The only minus of Urbo2 is the small basket.
