Easy to use

Everything about the Qbit+ is simple – no complexity whatsoever in the features and their operations. You can fold with just one hand; it is lightweight; it takes little storage space, and works with car seats seamlessly. This is one stroller that won’t give you any issues whatsoever.

Folding

Here is one of the few strollers you can fold with a single hand. So, while your other hand is busy, this stroller won’t be too difficult to fold and compact. This even comes handy for parents that travel without their partners – it is possible to fold the stroller while holding the baby with the other hand. And the folded stroller can follow you anywhere – you will hardly notice its presence. Instead of the usual umbrella fold, the GB Qbit Plus transforms into a small cube. Interestingly, the folded stroller can stand independently.

Pros and cons

Pros

  • Excellent appearance
  • Folding is very easy, even with a single hand. You can be done in just a step, although the folded stroller is less compact compared to similar strollers like the GB Pockit Plus or Babyzen YOYO
  • It is lighter and smaller, compared to other full-sized or standard strollers
  • You can have a totally flat recline, and you can adjust the footrest to suit the height of your baby
  • Impressive ample storage space, including under-stroller storage which you can access through the back and the front
  • Rear wheel suspension along with small wheels that make the stroller suitable for bumpy rides. However, this stroller is not great for difficult terrains or tails. Even at that, you will get a better ride compared to similar strollers
  • It works with popular car seats, including all the GB car seats and models from other manufacturers like Cybex, Nuna, and Maxi Cosi. However, you will need to get the adapters separately

Cons

  • As seen in most compact strollers, the stroller is non-modular. Hence it can only face the forward
  • You cannot convert this stroller to a double stroller, and the absence of the board means it is not suitable for older children
  • You do not get any accessories with this stroller out-of-the-box. All compatible accessories will be purchased separately
