With another new tiny-fold travel stroller on the market, the GB Qbit, we all want to know how it compares to the popular Mountain Buggy Nano. Being that the Qbit hasn’t been released just yet, we haven’t had a chance to compare it thoroughly, but this is a basic overview so far.
How are they similar? Both strollers are amazing travel strollers that fold up so tiny, they can fit into the overhead compartment on most airplanes. The strollers are car seat compatible as well, with the Maxi Cosi Mico, Cybex Aton and their respective coordinating car seats as well. It’s definitely easier to use a car seat with the Qbit over the Nano.
The Qbit is taller, narrower, and isn’t as long as the Mountain Buggy Nano. The Qbit can hold up to 55 lbs vs the Nano’s 44 lbs weight capacity, however the Qbit weighs almost 2 lbs more. The canopy on the new Qbit is significantly larger than that of the Nano, offering more coverage for your little one. The backpanel of the Qbit is covered properly, unlike the mesh panel on the Nano.
The Qbit has double wheels, the Nano has four single wheels throughout – single wheels are easier to manuever. The Nano’s footrest is adjustable, while the Qbit’s is not. Both strollers include a great travel bag, and the Nano’s is designed to have the wheels stick out so that the bag can be rolled when the stroller is inside. The underseat basket is large on both strollers and the adjustable harnesses are padded, however the Qbit’s harness is more comfortable. Both have easy pedal foot brakes and 2 position seat recline, however the Nano’s recline is a bit deeper. They both feature built in rear wheel suspension.
In terms of the fold – the Nano’s fold is slightly smaller, however the fold on the Qbit is significantly easier.
To sum it up. here are the pro’s of each stroller over the other one:
