Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Lighter than most single strollers, making it easy to maneuver
Its most beneficial feature is its light weight, thanks to its all-aluminum frame. It only weighs 16 lbs - the canopies, wheels, all of it - which is lighter than most single 'lightweight' strollers.
Parents will find it easy to push and steer this stroller around even with the combined weight of the stroller itself, the children and the added stuff they bring along on the storage basket.
Pro Windows keep your children cool inside
When the seat is fully reclined, there is a zipper you can open at the top part of the seat and a window will be exposed. This is convenient during warm weather since it provides air flow. Also, this will provide a direct line of sight and comfort for the children knowing that their parent is just right behind them.
Pro Can accomodate children from birth up to 8 years old, provided they are or under 50 pounds
This is basically just the stroller you need from birth up until your children grow older. Its weight capacity is up to 50 pounds per seat, has a tall seat back of 18" and 23" from the top of the canopy to the bottom of the seat, which means even tall children could comfortably fit in this stroller.
Pro You can step anywhere on the brake bar to stop the stroller
Unlike most strollers which only has a small brake you can step on, the Zoe has an aluminum bar across the stroller frame that you can step anywhere on. This is helpful when you need to stop suddenly, since you don't need to look down for the brakes.
Pro Super easy, one-step compact fold
There are "Pull Here" straps at the bottom of each seat that folds the stroller and auto-locks it. It is compact when folded and can fit into a backpack (sold separately).
Pro The seat reclines from upright to almost flat
This seat is equipped with two independent one-hand recline using a cinch strap at the back. You can adjust practically to any angle from 90 degrees (upright) to 135 degrees (almost flat) since there are no pre-set positions.
Pro Its 5-point harness will secure your children in their seat
The 5-point harness system is easy for parents but difficult for children to lock and undo. 30 lbs of pressure need to be applied to unlock the button. This is easy for the parents who can already exert that much effort but hard for the children who do not have that much force yet.
Pro You can easily access the huge basket even when the seat is fully-reclined
There is a generous gap between the top of the basket and bottom of the seat which prevents your things from getting snagged when you reach for them.
Pro The two independent full-coverage canopies protect your children from the sun
The XL2 has a 4-panel sun canopy that when fully extended, covers the sun up to your children's knees. The 4 panels are entirely SPF 50 and not just the tip of the canopy unlike most strollers have.
Pro The handlebar will work for parents' different heights
The handlebar is 40.5" from the ground and the rear wheels are placed at a recessed angle which allows room for parents to stride without hitting the back of the stroller. This is called kick space. Even if the handlebar is not adjustable, parents can move closer to the stroller and not worry about unintentionally kicking the stroller when they walk.
Pro Has a premium, sleek design
Consumers are asked to choose what color combination they would want for the canopy, the shoulder straps, and the wheel caps. With these matching accessories, your stroller would really look like you paid more money for it.
Con Not a travel system, cannot accommodate car seats
The Zoe XL2 is a side-by-side stroller for children who can already sit unassisted and is therefore not suitable for younger infants. You cannot attach car seats or bassinets unlike the other side-by-sides on the market today.
