Chicco Cortina Stroller Review- Exceptional Features
I will be talking of ease of use, maneuverability, safety, and the comfort of this Chicco Cortina stroller and below is my findings:
Ease of Use
The ease of use is the ease at which a user can assemble a stroller. In addition, it involves how easy you can fold and unfold a stroller. As for me, I rated this Chicco Cortina stroller very low when it comes to assembling.
This is because it comes with plenty of parts such as wheels, trays, and canopy so it takes much effort to assemble it correctly. The back wheels come with other parts such as brake nub, springs, and nuts which are equally not easy to fix.
I was able to fix it correctly after several attempts using a comprehensive instructional manual that comes with it. I may have tried it severally because I think I am a bit dull when it comes to following instructions. So, if you are the opposite of me then you can get it right fast.
But to be candid, I noticed that even other double strollers from other brands are not equally easy to assemble. The good thing is that you need to assemble it once and for all.
Apart from the difficult task of assembling this Chicco Cortina stroller, it is very easy to operate. You can fold and unfold it with just one hand. Moreover, it has a toe-tap brake system, which means it will take you little or no effort to put the stroller on still. You will really enjoy how easy it is to operate this stroller once you assemble it correctly.
The maneuverability score of this Chicco Cortina stroller is amazing. Irrespective of how bulky this stroller appears, it maneuvers in all terrains easily. The wheel suspension system on Chicco Cortina Together Double stroller offers a smooth ride. Furthermore, you can easily ride it on a rough surface, sandy and bumpy roads.
The wheels are somehow well built. I use the word “somehow” because they are made of plastic. I really enjoyed using it on rough roads but it is obvious it will not last long if you only use it on rough roads. Above all, you can use this Chicco Cortina stroller on a very narrow space due to its high level of maneuverability
Safety is my major concern whenever I am considering buying things for my babies. The container has the federal stroller safety standard, 16 CFR Parts 1112 and 1227. It shows that Chicco met all the safety standards. You can easily put the Chicco Cortina stroller in a lock mode using the simple lock nub at the rear wheel.
Furthermore, all the metal parts that come in contact with my babies body are well padded. Overall, the safety of babies and mother are well cared for in the design of this stroller. Therefore, you can use this stroller without fear of breaking or collapsing during jogging.
If comfort is all you are looking out for in a stroller then you have it all in Chicco Cortina Together double stroller. The first thing I liked about it is that it goes with Chicco Keyfit Infant car seat and Chicco Keyfit and KeyFit 30 infant car seat.
So, I used the Chicco keyFit 30 seat until my sons were almost a year old. The weight limit is 40 pounds per seat, which means that I can still use this stroller for next year because my babies weight will be less than that at two years.
In addition, I enjoyed the padded and adjustable handlebar because I can push this Chicco Cortina stroller with ease. Also, it has a large storage basket with zip that help mother carry along baby necessities on the move. The seat position is superb. it has a multi-position reclining seat. Moreover, it comes with a large canopy that is independent, therefore babies are protected from sun rays.
