Urban Detour Xtreme Travel System

Looking at this all-terrain buggy in sheer value for money terms, it’s hard to argue against it, with its faux-fur zip-in sleeping bag, integrating car seat, rain cover and matching changing bag. Like some others, it’s really a plush town buggy flirting with rugged looks, but it’s better than you think off-road: it’s amazingly well-balanced and manoeuvrable, the front wheel lifting with little more than a finger’s pressure on the bar. The padded seat is very comfy, there’s tons of storage and it’s easy to fold one-handed. But It’s heavy to lift if not to manoeuvre, its locking swivel-front wheel is a potential weak point off-road as it lacks the rigidity of a permanently-fixed wheel, and its handle is too high for comfort for shorter pushers.
