Finding the perfect stroller for your unique lifestyle is like the holy grail of parenting. If you’ve got two kiddos to push around, the challenge can be even trickier. Enter the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double Stroller 

This all-terrain jogging stroller carries double the load without sacrificing manoeuvrability, ease of use, or–most importantly  — your kiddos’ comfort and safety. Also available as a single seat stroller, the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double is equally at home on city sidewalks or park trails, making it the ideal vehicle for your little ones as you explore the world together.

Design & Functionality 

THE SPECS:

  • Suitable from 6 months (unless used with Newborn Nest, compatible infant car seat, or Newborn Inlay) to 100 lbs 
  • Folded Dimensions: 34.25" x 30.12" x 16.14" 
  • Stroller Weight: 34.17 lbs 
  • Shoulder Width: 12.4" 
  • Sitting Height: 21" 
  • Door pass-through (assembled width): 31.5" 

The sleek, lightweight design of the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double Stroller features large 16-inch rear wheels on a suspension system for the best in comfort and control — this is a double stroller that feels and steers like a single. Transportation and storage are a snap with a one-handed, compact fold so you can keep one hand available for wrangling your littles.  

The swivel front wheel locks in place for jogging or rougher terrain and the twisting hand brake integrated into the handlebar provides unparalleled speed control. Plus, you’ll never need to fumble and kick at the rear wheels to try and engage the brakes while you’re rolling.   

It is worth noting that the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double is not intended for use with infants under six months unless combined with Newborn Nest, Car Seat Adapter, or Newborn Inlay.  

Safety & Comfort 

Safety is at the top of the list for many parents when choosing a stroller, luckily, Thule has an extensive testing regimen. This means the Urban Glide 2 Double has been exposed to everything from desert heat and arctic cold, water resistance, drop tests and wind tunnels to tensile, shock, and crash tests.  

This stroller nestles your little ones in a secure and comfortable seat with two padded five-point harnesses and integrated ventilation. The reflective rims on all three wheels and a reflective edge on the canopies make this stroller highly visible, so you can feel comfortable going for a night-time stroll if your kiddo is having a tough time falling asleep.  

To maximize your little one's comfort (and to help with those inevitable stroller naps), the seats conveniently recline independently to a near-flat position (with only one hand) and the integrated suspension makes the ride smooth for both parent and kiddos. Multi-position canopies with side-ventilation windows ensures your children are comfortable, and a peekaboo windows with magnetic closure lets you check on your sleeping children without disturbing them. There is also plenty of room to bring everything you need thanks to the large cargo basket with zip-top cover, rear mesh pocket, and two mesh compartments for snacks or toys. 

 

All the Extras 

One often overlooked consideration when shopping for a stroller (and in particular with doubles) is the availability of optional extras to customise your ride. One of the reasons that we love the Thule Urban Glide 2 is because there are a bunch of great accessories from Thule to keep your little ones happy, comfortable, and stylish. 

Alongside several choices for car seat adapters (Thule Universal, Chicco, or Maxi-Cosi), the newborn Nest or  Inlay allow you to use the stroller from birth. You can also outfit your Urban Glide 2 with Bumper Bars, Snack Trays, and Cup Holders/Bottle Cages so your littles will have everything they need at hand for longer strolls. If you’re worried about the weather, Thule has you covered (literally), with the optional Stroller Seat Liner, Footmuff, Rain Cover, and  Mesh Cover. 

Final Verdict: The Best of Both Worlds 

Whether you’re planning to hit the hiking trails or explore a concrete jungle, the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double is a great choice. Some two-seat strollers can be challenging, so we love this easy-to-steer, safe, and comfortable double stroller. It’s perfect for taking the kids out for a jog or stroll over any rough, uneven terrain — even snow! With its perfect blend of comfort, safety, and manoeuvrability, it is no wonder that the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double is one of  our top double strollers of the year
