Best Twin Strollers Under $300

Best Twin Strollers Under $300
Considering their overall size and design, multi-rider strollers are generally more expensive than single strollers. Finding affordable twin stroller is a challenging task, so I invested some time researching potential options. I limited my search on best twin strollers under $300. Twin strollers are sometimes referred to as tandem strollers, or multi-rider strollers.

How To Select Twin Stroller?
There are several factors which should be taken into consideration before purchasing twin strollers. The features of interest include: weight, maximum weight capacity, seat locking mechanism, breaking system, seat quality, wheels, and canopy.

  • Weight – Twin strollers typically weight between 30 and 40 pounds. Great ones will be at, or below, 30 lbs. Joovy has one model that is actually weighs only 23 pounds, which is the best lightweight twin stroller under $300. I reviewed it in the section below.
  • Maximum Weight Capacity - Ideally, you will focus on strollers with maximum carrying capacity of 40 lbs per seat. This is industry standard for this stroller class. Some twin strollers will offer even 50 lbs per seat, which is excellent carrying capacity.
  • Suspension System – All-wheel suspension would be great, but there is really no standard for suspension in this stroller class.
  • Braking System – Due to overall weight of twin strollers, breaking system should be solid. When in locked position, a stroller should be firmly planted still. Since twin strollers under $300 do not have many jogging options, foot mechanical brakes will do trick.
  • Seat Quality – Twin strollers, or tandem strollers, tend to be exposed to much lower levels of mechanical stress, as oppose to single jogging strollers. Some of this relatively small stress is absorbed by a suspension, while a portion of it is transferred to the seating area. This is why you want to make sure that seating area satisfies four main basic requirements: it is specious enough, it is made out of durable material, it has adequate padding, and it is firmly attached to the stroller’s frame.
  • Wheels - Best twin strollers under $300 should have a wheel locking capability, which will allow you to stroll on a straight line. Other than that, you want to make sure that the front wheels can rotate, at least, 180 degrees, since these strollers are expected to be fairly maneuverable.
  • Canopy - Two main factors are adjustability and coverage. Back seat is usually much better covered than the front seat, so your focus should be on the front seat canopy's coverage and adjustability.
