Features of the Baby Jogger City Select
City Select Single Stroller is considered multi-functional because it enables parents to mix and match seats to accommodate individual needs. You can convert this stroller to a double, and there are 16 different configurations that can be used. Rear tires are 12,” and front tires are 8” which makes for a comfortable, smooth ride over all types of terrain. It has front wheel suspension in addition to front wheel swivel and lock capability for those long-distance strolls. The reclining seat is padded, so your child is comfortable whether napping or sitting up and enjoying the sights. The seat is also adjustable so you can turn it to face you, or turn it to face outward. A five-point safety harness has pads and buckle covers to keep it from cutting into your child’s skin, providing safety and comfort simultaneously. The stroller weighs about 28 pounds, and a 45-pound capacity is recommended.
For all of those little odds and ends that are necessary for a trip with your child in the stroller, there is a storage compartment in the back of the seat, and a large basket underneath. Also included on the City Select Single Stroller is an adjustable foot well tilt for your child’s leg comfort. This stroller comes in a variety of colors including black, quartz, onyx, ruby, silver and amethyst. Because of the patented quick-fold technology, you can easily fold this stroller. Simply lift the sides up, and the stroller folds itself. To store or transport the stroller just snap the latch to lock it.
Although it’s always nice to take your child out on a nice day, you want to protect them from too much sun. The adjustable canopy on this stroller is UV 50+ and gives plenty of shade on those hot, sunny days. It has a peek-a-boo- window with a magnetic closure that allows you to check on your child as often as you like. You can adjust the telescoping handbar to your height, and there is a hand-operated parking brake.
NOTE: This stroller is not meant for jogging.
Caring for Your Baby Jogger Stroller
It is always good to protect your investment by performing regular maintenance and simple routine care. The seat is detachable and can be machine washed in cold water with a mild detergent. Abrasive cleaning materials should not be used. Reattach the seat while it is still wet and let it dry on the frame. This will minimize any shrinkage. You can wipe down the plastic and metal parts with warm water and mild soap. Use a damp cloth to clean the wheels and be sure to dry them with a cloth or soft towel. The stroller should be stored inside and away from direct heat sources. If you hear any noises like squeaking, or if you feel the tension in the stroller, you can take it to a bicycle dealer where they can lubricate the stroller. Baby Jogger comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
