Stokke’s popular Scoot stroller has been drastically improved for Fall 2014 – What’s new for the Stokke Scoot V2?
Well, first of all, they’ve designed the seat in a way that it can now recline to three positions in both forward-facing and rear-facing direction. Previously, the seat was not able to do this – drastic improvement. The fold is more compact now, allowing for easy storage and folding.
The wheels have totally changed allowing for superior maneuverability. Both wheels were made of EVA and are now foam-filled rubber. The sizes have increased as well; the back wheel has changed from 176 mm EVA to 254, and the front wheels from 176 mm to 203 mm. They’ve removed the suspension in the front wheel – I guess it was interfering more than adding.
The Stokke Scoot’s handlebar used to telescope outwards – the preferred way of extending a handlebar. However they realized that if they would design the handlebar to rotate up and down instead, then it would provide a significant longer stride so that taller parents won’t kick the stroller.
The Stokke Scoot canopy is now easier to change without a zipper. There’s a larger cap to more protection, and extra ventilation when the seat is reclined.
The Stokke Scoot remains a really popular choice for parents who want a mid-size stroller that does it all!
The Stokke Scoot v2 is available in Black Melange, Red, Purple, and the cool new Slate Blue! It retails for just $599.99
I am a regular mom of the 3 most adorable girls! I was working at PishPosh for almost 2 years before I had my first, and I pretty much knew exactly what gear would work for me and my lifestyle after my hands-on experience. I love researching new products and sharing the updates with fellow moms who care about what’s new in the fascinating and ever-changing Baby Gear World.
