City Mini GT vs B-Agile

Trying to decide between the Baby Jogger City Mini GT and the Britax B-Agile strollers. Any opinions on which is lighter or folds up smaller? Pros and cons? Thanks!

Re: City Mini GT vs B-Agile

  • I was faced with the same dilemma (for the doubles) and I ended up picking the city mini gt over the Britax. I love how easy the city mini is to maneuver and like the design a bit more. One thing I will say the Britax has over the city mini though is the zipper where your child's legs would go... makes for access to the under cargo area.

  • ...also I'd recommend viewing some YouTube reviews on both and seeing if that helps you decide which you like better. This is what me and my husband did since non of our local stores carry either stroller (in a double). We lucked out and loved the city mini gt when we got it. The wheels on the city mini gt are what automatically won me over and I love it!

  • Like PP said there are some good you tube videos that compare the b-agile and city mini, and some that compare the city mini and the GT. I ended up going with the GT because the better tires were non-negotiable. I've pushed it through a couple inches of snow a couple times already this winter.

    I ended up getting the B-Agile.  I watched many you tube videos and both seem really nice but for what I'd typically use it for (walks, shopping malls), I felt the B-Agile was perfect and I got a great deal by getting the package deal with the B-Safe car seat.  I also like that I didn't have to buy an additional adapter for the car seat as the B-Agile/B-Safe travel system includes the adapter.

  • We just bought the b-agile/b-safe system at Target. I find it very easy to use, lightweight, and compact. Target had it on clearance for $199.98 yesterday, which is a great deal, as the stroller by itself is usually $169-187 on Amazon.

  • The wheels are significantly different.  The City Mini Gt wheels are bigger and will help with maneuverability.  The wheels on the B-Agile in the front is tiny, which can make turning a slight challenge.  
    I have a City Micro, which has the same wheel size as the B-Agile.  I recently replaced the wheels with regular city mini wheels and what a difference!  The stroller pushes so much better.

  • Maybe I should clarify: I don't run, but we do walk on trails (dirt, mulch, some pea gravel) quite a bit. Really want something that will do well all terrain but not take up the entire trunk.

    I would look at the City Mini GT or the Valco Snap then. You need the bigger wheels. You can get reviews and demos on youtube.

    Just an FYI Valco is discontinuing the silver color right now.....so check out my earlier post below. It's $179.99 vs $249 on amazon. I like the Snap better because it is really lightweight. I have the double and it is amazing. I took it through all kinds of stuff at the pumpkin patch-no problems. The single weighs 12 lbs, with the included console & bumper bar. The double is pretty compact so the single would be as well.

  • I'm reading reviews that say the Valco isn't good on rough terrain. Any experience with it off paved surfaces?

    I've used it in grass, slightly wet dirt, play ground wood things, and gravel with no problem. They have a Snap 4 you can get air tires for if you want something more off road. Really if you need anything more rugged I'd look at a BOB.
