Uppa Baby Cruz

I like that the seat reverses on the Cruz and it is so light!  My only concern is the wheels since some of where we walk has gravel and dirt paths. In store I was told the wheels on the Cruz might not be good. I get that its NOT ALL Terrain but can anybody let me know if the Cruz would be good on gravel and dirt paths? I'm not sure I can wait for the 2015 model. I am due in March. 

Re: Uppa Baby Cruz

  • I don't have this one, but my neighbor does, and he has found that while it's great on sidewalks and grass, but not all-terrain by any means. I think the 2015 model has better wheels, so it will be able to go over more uneven ground. Hope this helps!
  • I'm not looking to go "off road" but the one walking path by our house is sometimes gravel, sometimes compacted dirt paved trail and sometimes blacktop. Won't be right on the grass. And I'm afraid the '15 model doesn't release until the baby is due!

  • uppababy cruz '15, is already in stores.  My friend had the '14, but never used it (baby born sept) so just took it back to BuyBuyBaby and exchanged for the '15. She likes how the wheels are larger cushy & it also comes with the bumper bar.

  • I would get a Versa.  It has better wheels on it already and you can order all terrain GT wheels for it that are awesome. Oh and it's cheaper.

  • The 2015 is already available - at Buy Buy ad some stores the 2014 is only available in certain colors and the 2015 is the model they're featuring. So if you want the 2015 you can definitely get it now.

  • I love the Cruz. However, we are just using it for normal suburban life, not really on trails or anything. We also have the Vista, which was too big for my everyday use. It seems to have a better suspension. Honestly, for the first few months we did not use a stroller but used a snap and go. It is so much easier. Now that LO is older, 19 months, she likes to walk at times and we also have a wagon.

    We will be second time parents. Learned a lot the first time around. A great example is buying more stroller than you need. The UB Vista, in my opinion, is heavy and cumbersome. By 8-10 months, you'll probably wish you had something lighter. So while the heavy-duty all terrain strollers have some appeal, I'm not sure that they are a good long-term option. We used the Orbit which isn't all that unlike the Vista, in terms of stroller class, size, weight, etc. At 8 mos, we ditched our Orbit for the Bugaboo Bee which we love. If I could go back and do it again, my top two picks would be the UB Cruz (which my sister has and loves) or the Bugaboo Bee. Both allow you to dock an infant car seat to the frame. Both are great as more lightweight, intermediate strollers that will have better longevity than say, the UB Vista, Bugaboo Chameloen and Orbit. Just my two cents. I think the Cruz is a great pick.

  • I am also due in March and just bought the 2014 model at Buy Buy Baby on clearance. They did have the 2015 model available, but it was actually out of our price range at full price. No experience using it yet, but if you decide the wheels on the '14 would work for you, I recommend checking there for a great price!
