The market is full of lightweight strollers, but most of them don’t offer so many extra useful features as the zoe xl1 best v2 does. This little stroller has a large storage basket, a back pocket, cup holders for both parent and baby, but the biggest selling point it has is the most prominent canopy of all travel strollers we’ve reviewed.
This is a stroller you’ll get to know quickly, and the fact that it weighs only 11.8 pounds means that you can maneuver around town with ease. So, you get some useful features and the ability to move fast. Read on for more details.

Only one look at this stroller is enough to make most parents go wow. The canopy is huge, one of the biggest sun shades you can find these days. It has 4 panels that can be tugged or zipped away if needed. That’s just great because it means that your child will always be in the shade. You can take the panels off as the child grows, so his view doesn’t get blocked. The shade is great when your child is sleeping because he won’t get any sun in his eyes. The peekaboo window is located on the top and has a magnetic closure.
You will find plenty of storage space even though this is a very compact stroller. The storage basket under the seat is large enough to hold a medium-sized diaper bag and a couple of other items with ease. If you need some extra storage space, there is a pocket on the back of the seat. It’s ideal for holding small things like your keys, phone, and wallet.
Unlike most other travel strollers, the ZOE XL1 BEST v2 uses only 2 harnesses, instead of the standard 5-point harness system. We liked this feature because it’s easy to control, and the buckle is hard to open, so your child won’t be able to escape the seat.
We didn’t expect to find such a roomy seat on this compact little stroller, but we did. The seat has a recline that’s operated with a single hand. The recline is almost entirely flat, ideal for napping, but not suitable for newborns. You can set it with a small lever found on the seat.
The brakes on this stroller can be found next to the rear wheels. They are operated by foot, and they work very well. The brakes react quickly, so you can even wear flip-flops while on a stroll.
Wheels on this stroller are quite small, so try not pushing it over rougher terrain. They are designed for pavements and city streets, where they always perform well. The ZOE XL1 BEST v2 will get you from A to B quickly and safely. The front wheels have suspension, making the ride even smoother for your child.
Easy to Fold
This is one of those strollers that is really easy to fold with one hand. The folding mechanism operates as advertised, so you can fold the stroller while holding your child in the other hand. Just pull a strap away from the seat, and the stroller closes. You don’t have to push on it to get it to lock. That means that you can carry it anywhere easily, and the stroller also has a folding stand for easier storage.
Carry strap and case
The carry strap and case are a nice touch that helps you get the stroller anywhere with ease. The stroller handlebars are all you need to carry it around on shorter relations, but the strap works magic for a long journey. The carry case is the best solution when you need to carry the stroller far. There are two backpack straps on the case, so you can just put it on your back, and you won’t even know it’s there. It’s a nice touch.
Convenient extra features
The extra features are usually what parents love the most. This stroller has plenty of those. Both, the parent and the child have cup holders, which is a great detail for such a compact stroller. The bumper bar comes with this stroller, and it also has a snack tray on it. The tray is ideal for keeping your child occupied in certain situations like going to the doctor’s office. The child can access it easily.
Maneuverable with one hand
If you want to get a stroller that’s easy to operate and maneuver through busy city streets, look no further! This model is really simple to manage. You can adjust and push it with one hand at all times. It’s stable and won’t tip over even when you hit some gravel.
If you want to get the lightest stroller with increased maneuverability and ease of operation, the ZOE XL1 BEST v2 is the best choice. It offers a nice recline and a massive sun shade. The folding mechanism can be operated with one hand, and the carry strap and case make it easy to get around town.
It’s the perfect stroller to get around town quickly, and the extra features like the cup holder and large storage area should make the entire trip feel even more comfortable. So, if you want a stroller that has the necessary elements, that’s lightweight, and not expensive, this is the one for you.
