Review | Litetrax by Joie

Hello all!

Today I have a review for you of the gorgeous pushchair Litetrax by Joie, a stylish and sporty three-wheeler, designed and engineered to transport your little rider from newborn onwards! What drew me to the Litetrax was the simplicity, we all need one of those pushchairs that is simple to use and light, but we still want it to look good too, you don't have to compromise on style, especially when it comes to Joie products!

Joie was created by a UK group of friends and parents with one simple mission: to share joy with new parents worldwide. The final products were created with the best design, engineering and safety means possible ensuring you have the greatest... We draw on decades of industry experience that stems from our devotion to do what is right for parents, children and the environment.

As a result, each Joie product is created to make life with small children less work and more fun! Yay!

As soon as it arrived we unboxed it and popped everything together, the instructions were easy to follow and most of the steps are pretty explanatory! Within 10 minutes it was all put together and we adjusted all the straps and moved the harness up into the right position for Abbie! All of which took about 10 minutes again, it was a little fiddly but we got there in the end!

Out of the pushchairs we have tried and tested, Ben has said that this is his favourite by far, the steering is easy (although I would love it if the handlebars were adjustable, that's my only critiscm), the shape of the pushchair is perfect, curved and sleek and easy to manoeuvre too! 

Our favourite part of the pushchair? This is going to seem rather silly, but as a parent you want a pushchair that is compact and easy to fold, and this is amazing, with a secret hidden strap under the seat, just pull up and it folds in half, one little push together till it clicks and you have the most compact pushchair i've ever seen!

I also love the size of the shopping basket, unlike a lot of pushchairs I've seen, this is both wide and deep! It's also set up a bit further from the ground so your shopping won't be dragging on the floor when it's full! 

One thing I did notice about the pushchair was that the seat itself was set a lot lower than any previous we've tried, it did take a little getting used to but Abbie didn't seem to notice and it was much easier for her to get herself in and out too! The seat is super easy to recline, just like most pushchairs you simply flip up the clip on the back and release the straps, it is full reclinable, from flat down to straight upwards, however your little one likes to sit, or whatever age they are, they will definitely find their comfortable spot!

"The Joie Litetrax is perfect for parents on the go, with an ultra compact folded package which locks closed automatically and fits easily in small boots. A sporty 3-wheeled aluminium chassis and front swivel wheel makes manoeuvring the pushchair a breeze on any road. The thickly quilted seat provides ultimate comfort and lies flat to welcome infant riders. Recline the seat smoothly with just one hand to ensure you won't wake a sleepy baby, or click in your Joie Group 0+ infant carrier (no adaptors required) to create an effortless travel system.

Litetrax's large expandable hood means baby can always stay shaded, and its ventilated window allows for airflow on warmer days. The large, easy access storage basket has plenty of room for baby's-and mum's-essentials, so you can shop, stroll, or travel with ease."

Overall we are super impressed with the Litetrax, it is everything you could need in a pushchair, from the simplicity to the design, the size of the basket to the compactness (that's a word right?). This is our go to pushchair for when we're off out and about, it's the easiest and most compact so takes us one minute to fold it up and pop in the boot of the car!

  5. I just looked at this stroller yesterday! I loooooved it in the store. Almost purchased it then and there haha. The only question I have: How does it perform on grass/gravel areas? I live in a rural area, so it's necessary for it to be able to handle a light layer of gravel or grass :)
