Thule Sleek Stroller Review

The Thule Sleek is a new convertible stroller that transforms from a single into a double mode. It can handle twins or siblings close in age.

You can buy it as a single model and then later on add the second seat or even a stroller board for an older child.

With 14 different seating arrangements, it grows with your family. It can handle two toddler seats, two bassinets, or two car seats. Both seats are reversible and have a deep recline. This model is very similar to the popular UPPAbaby Vista.

Since Sleek is still not out, I can’t tell you if it’s better than Vista. From what I’ve seen at the ABC Kids Expo where this model was first presented, it doesn’t have anything that makes it stand out except for the modern design and a lighter weight of 24 lbs which is a few pounds lighter than most convertible strollers.

Just like Vista, it features a large canopy, adjustable leg rest, swing-away bumper bar, adjustable handlebar, large basket, all-terrain wheels, all-wheel suspension, and flip-flop-friendly brake.

Let’s talk about the price a little bit. The Sleek will be retailing for $799 which is not cheap and it comes without a bassinet. The Vista on another hand retails for $899 and comes with a bassinet.

Vista bassinet is high quality and can also be used as an additional sleeping place for your baby. Big plus! The handlebar and bumper bar on Vista are covered with nice leather vs. Sleek that has a rubber bumper bar and foam handlebar.

So far for me, Vista wins. The only thing that Sleek has going for it is lighter weight. In single mode, Vista weighs 26 lbs vs Sleek which weighs 24 lbs. Do you guys agree with me? Am I not seeing something? This baby will retail for around $799 and come in five colors. Sorry, I don’t have any good photos yet.

The canopy has two large panels with another zipped-in mesh panel that provides plenty of coverage. The mesh panel provides nice ventilation and can be covered on a chilly day.

There is also a small pop-out sunvisor and a plastic peekaboo window with a magnetic closure. Love magnetic closures instead of noisy Velcro that can wake your baby up.


The telescoping handle bar goes from 38″ up to 45″ from the ground giving parents an 8″ range. Perfect for shorter and especially taller parents who might need more legroom.

The handlebar is covered with foam which I have a love/hate relationship with. On one hand, I love that it’s so comfy to the touch, but on the other hand, it’s harder to clean than rubber and it also absorbs sweat.


The main seat has a one-hand lever recline with three positions. It does keep that ‘v’ shape when reclined. You can convert Sleek into a double stroller by adding a second seat.

The main seat has a weight capacity of 48.5 lbs while the second seat can handle up to 33 lbs. The stroller can take two seats, two car seats, or two bassinets. With 14 different combinations, it can easily accommodate twins or siblings close in age.  All the seat materials are removable and machine washable. They are non-toxic.


It has an adjustable padded 5-point harness with two small release buttons in the buckle. The buckle is hard to open for a toddler, but easy for parents.

To open the buckle all you need to do is push two middle buttons while squeezing the sides. No escaping from this seat!


The leg rest is adjustable and has three positions. There is also another leg rest that is part of the frame that kids can use to climb into the seat.


The basket is not only big but also has a zipper cover which prevents stuff from falling out. If you don’t need it, you can simply roll the cover away.

And the cool thing is that the back panel expands and closes with magnets so you really don’t need to unzip the cover to access your stuff.  It has a weight capacity of 11 lbs. There is also a small zipper pocket in the back of the basket for small essentials.


There is a one-step break in the back that locks both of the rear wheels. This brake is flip-flop-friendly.


It rolls on foam-filled tires with 12″ tires in the back and 8″ in the front. The front wheel is swivel but can be locked straight.

The all-wheel suspension makes the ride much smoother by absorbing the bumps.


The fold is easy but bulky. You can fold it with the seat attached. It will take a lot of room in your trunk. To make it more compact you could remove the rear wheels.


It works with major car seats like Nuna, Chicco, Graco, Cybex, etc.

If you want to turn your stroller into a double mode, you can use those adapters to create more room between the seats. Now, the cool thing about those adapters is that you can use them without the second seat to position the seat higher on the frame.

Bringing your baby closer to you promotes better parent-child bonding. This is one of the biggest features of strollers like Stokke Xplory where the seat is higher on the frame. Many parents would buy unpractical Xplory just because of that. I love this option.


The bassinet is not included but could be purchased separately.


-Bulky. Like most convertible strollers Sleek is bulky when folded.

-High price. This stroller is not cheap and it does not come with a bassinet. For that price, I think that the bassinet should be included.
