The Zoe XL2 Xtra Double Stroller is really the most lightweight double umbrella stroller available so far. It weighs only 16 lbs, so it is a perfect choice even for grandparents that find it difficult to push around or lift heavy double strollers when taking care of their grandchildren.






It is also a great stroller to have if you travel a lot as it is easy to fit in the smallest of car trunks or check at the airport. The Zoe XL2 Xtra Lightweight Double Stroller is a great choice no matter if you have twins or an infant and toddler as they will all enjoy the smooth and easy ride. I just can not tell you all about the dimensions of this double umbrella stroller. It is not only the fact that it weighs only 16 lbs, that is actually difficult to beat even by some single strollers, but also it is the width. The Zoe XL2 Xtra measures 29 inches in its widest point, so you can safely fit it through any standard doorway.


With your lightweight stroller you will be able to fit it anywhere all you want, as it is easy to fold away. All you have to do is to pull both straps located on the seats and the stroller collapses on its own and auto locks in place.The dimensions when folded are as follows: 26″ (height) x 29″ (width) x 7″ (depth). A great touch is that the Zoe XL2 Xtra Lightweight Double Stroller comes with a carry bag, since it can not stand upright on its own.







One thing apart from the lightweight and easy fold, that I particularly love is the one piece handlebar. Not a lot of double umbrella strollers come with a one piece handlebar, but this is one of my favourite features, as it allows me to push the stroller one handed. The handlebar can not be adjusted, but it stands at the standard 40.5 inches over the ground and the stroller has a recessed rear axle that actually allows parents over 6 inch tall not to kick the frame with every step they take.






Zoe has also taken care of the parent’s comfort by fitting the Zoe XL2 Xtra Lightweight Double Stroller with a one piece brake bar that is flip flop friendly and super easy to use even by the grandparents. After the parent’s comfort is completely ensured, let's have a look at the seats and wheels, to find out if the Zoe XL2 will be great for the little ones too.






Both seats are actually quite roomy as each one of them is 12 inches wide and 9 inches deep. The seat back measures 18 inches and there are 23 inches of space between the seat and the top of the canopy. This will perfectly fit even taller for their age kids and completely corresponds to the 50 lbs of weight that each seat can take. The babies are safely buckled in with a five point harness equipped with shoulder pads. I really need to say that there have been a few complaints about the harness being very tight and difficult to unbuckle, but I guess this just gets better after few uses - mine are both fine.

The only thing that I would have improved is the seats recline. They both recline individually to a 135 degrees position that is just too far from a fully flat recline. If they did go a bit further down, it would have been great, but even like so my kids haven't complained so far and have taken their naps in the stroller.







What makes it up for the recline angle are the canopies. The Zoe XL2 Xtra umbrella stroller comes with great big canopies with extendable sun visor that ensure full sun protection to your babies. Each canopy reclines individually and at the back of each one you can find an additional storage pocket. On a very hot days the backs of the canopies roll up and a nice size ventilation window opens that also allows you to keep an eye on the little ones.






As I have mentioned storage, the storage bin that the Zoe XL2 Xtra Lightweight Stroller has located under the seats is not only quite big, but also very easily accessible (I guess due to the lack of a lower reclining position of the seats). When it comes to storage space, this is certainly the best that a double umbrella stroller can offer.

All this rides on a two sets of double 5 ⅛ inch front wheels and two single 6 ⅛ inch wheels at the back. The front wheels of course can swivel or get locked into place and also come with suspension for greater comfort on the bumpy roads. All the wheels are plastic, but they come with a lifetime warranty and Zoe promises to change them for free.






Apart from the lifetime warranty on the wheels, the double stroller comes with a padded front belly bar that is super easy to attach and pop out and cup holder for the parents and 2 cupholders and a snack cup for the kids. How cool is that?!







In general, although it has it cons - to me it is only the reclining position, the Zoe XL2 Xtra is one of the best double strollers you can find at this price. It is compact, easy to fold and lightweight double stroller that will fit well twins or children with an age gap. It offers comfortable ride and a lot of storage space and most of all it can be maneuvered even one handed. If you are looking for the best double umbrella stroller without breaking the bank, then the Zoe XL2 Xtra Lightweight Double Stroller could be the one you are looking for.
