UPPAbaby Mesa infant seat with easy SmartSecure installation

January 24th, 2013

    MESA car seat combines the safety, functionality, and ease of use parents and babies need to feel protected and reassured. The MESA is the only infant car seat on the market that uses SMARTSECURE™ System. This unique technology utilizes a tightness indicator and self-retracting mini LATCH connectors to facilitate quick, accurate, and easy installation.

    With a keen eye for designing stylish and sleek products that combine features and functions new parents want—plus innovations they never knew were possible, the MESA works directly with the VISTA smart luxury stroller and the CRUZ stroller systems without the purchase of adapters. Additional MESA features include:

    • SIP – Side Impact Protection integrated with a no-rethread harness that enables front adjustment access to facilitate easy and accurate harness position – optimized for preemies.

    • Convenience – A one-push stroller release on the carry handle makes stroller-to-car transfer smooth and easy.

    • Protection – A hideaway SPF 50+ canopy protects infants from the sun, but when not in use hides away. The MESA also has integrated storage pockets for the infant restraint buckles to keep the metal parts cool when the seat is exposed to sun and within easy-reach for child restraint.

    Maneuvering
    The City Versa has 8″ wheels that are going to handle multiple surfaces better than most standard strollers. Great overall handling and push. The Cruz has a bit larger than average 6.5″ front and 7.5″ rear foam-filled rubber tires that do very well on indoor surfaces and can be pushed without struggle on most outdoor surfaces; for a great overall push. The Bee Plus has an exceptional push indoors and on smoother outdoor surfaces on its 6″ foam-filled rubber tires.
    Storage
    Baby Jogger has provided a nice big basket to fit your diaper bag and other essentials. The Cruz has a 2.7 cubic foot storage basket, much larger than similar strollers. The Bee Plus has a storage basket less spacious than the other two, but still usable.
    Manufacturer’s warranty
    Baby Jogger has a lifetime warranty on frame, and 1 year on soft parts. UPPAbaby offers 2-year product warranty. Bugaboo offers 2-year warranty.

    Maneuvering
    The Vista has a smooth push and is a better choice for inclement winter weather or going over rougher cement or grass with its larger foam-filled rubber tires that are 8″ front and 11″ in the rear. Its handling is excellent, but not quite as nimble as the Cruz or Bee Plus. The Cruz has a bit larger than average 6.5″ front and 7.5″ rear foam-filled rubber tires that do very well on indoor surfaces and can be pushed without struggle on most outdoor surfaces; for a great overall push. The Bee Plus has an exceptional push indoors and on smoother outdoor surfaces on its 6″ foam-filled rubber tires.
    Storage
    Few strollers match the cavernous basket of the Vista stroller. The Cruz has a 2.7 cubic foot storage basket, much larger than similar strollers. The Bee Plus has a storage basket less spacious than the other two, but still usable.

UPPAbaby Vista stroller (2012)

September 23rd, 2011


    For 2012, the UPPAbaby Vista stroller sees a new fabric color, new frame color, and a few nice enhancements.


    2012 UPPAbaby Vista stroller updates include:

    • New color Drew is a bright tangerine
    • Jake (black) and Drew (tangerine) come with black colored frames. Cole, Carlin, Denny, Mica, Lindsey keep the silver colored frame.
    • Height-adjustable sun canopy gives 1.5 more inches of headroom compared to previous Vista models
    • New deeper recline position now suitable for newborn when also using the optional SnugSeat.
    • New front suspension
    • Bassinet has mesh vented canopy, mesh covered upper mattress to aid ventilation, and vents under the bassinet
    • Redesigned optional cupholder

    The 2012 Vista stroller will retail around $699 and be available around February 2012.


UPPAbaby G-Lite stroller (2011)

October 13th, 2010

    The 2011 UPPAbaby G-Lite errand stroller is released in February 2011. The 2011 G-Lite stroller has a couple of great enhancements!

    • New extendable sun visor for better sun protection.
    • New padded seat insert that is easily removed and machine washable. The soft cottony finish of the seat liner is rare on this type of stroller!

    Two new colors are introduced: a bright lime yellow, and a rich deep magenta. Black and red continue to be offered on the UPPAbaby G-Lite as well. For 2011, the UPPAbaby G-Lite is priced just under $120… making it an exceptional value for an ultra-lightweight stroller with decent sun coverage and a comfortably padded seat.


UPPAbaby Vista travel bag + breakage warranty (2011)

October 12th, 2010
    UPPAbaby Vista travel bag

    UPPAbaby is re-thinking the concept of the stroller travel bag. Available in late 2010, the new travel bag for the Vista stroller has better padding and a hard, supportive bottom with wheels.


    As part of the new travel bag purchase, UPPAbaby will replace any Vista parts broken during airline travel while using the UPPAbaby Vista travel bag. Travel bag buyers must register the purchase, and the breakage warranty is good for the duration of the stroller’s original warranty period (i.e., the Vista has a 2 year warranty, so if you buy the bag at time of stroller purchase, the breakage warranty is the full two years. If you buy the new travel bag a year after the original stroller purchase, the breakage warranty is only for the remaining year).


UPPAbaby G-Luxe stroller (2011)

October 12th, 2010

    The 2011 UPPAbaby G-Luxe lightweight stroller comes in Feburary 2011. It has a few nice enhancements that make a great errand/travel stroller even better!

    • More supportive legrest that adjusts from horizontal position for younger babies to the traditional lowered position for older children.
    • New padded seat insert that is easily removed and machine washable. The soft cottony finish of the seat liner is rare on this type of stroller!

    The 2011 UPPAbaby G-Luxe is no longer available in green or navy, and it adds an orange color and turquoise color. Red and black are still offered.


    For 2011, the UPPAbaby G-Luxe has a $30 price increase to reflect the better features over the prior year’s model.


UPPAbaby Cruz stroller (2011)

October 12th, 2010
    UPPAbaby Cruz

    Estimated to debut in summer 2011, the all-new UPPAbaby Cruz stroller combines some of the best features of a full-sized stroller with the light weight and compact fold of a travel and errand stroller.

    UPPAbaby Cruz

    The UPPAbaby Cruz features include:

    • Full-sized seat with deep recline and adjusting footrest. UPPAbaby reportedly is targeting a seat that’s good to use from newborn.
    • Seat can face forward or face reverse.
    • Stroller folds easily with seat attached forward facing.
    • Weight estimate on the whole stroller (including seat) is 17 to 19 pounds.
    • Adjustable, telescoping handle.
    • Optional infant seat adapter for Graco, Peg Perego, or Chicco.
    • Huge underseat basket.

    The UPPAbaby Cruz stroller should be priced around $450, based upon initial discussions with UPPAbaby.
