The Graco Metrolite Travel System is a full-size baby stroller that is extra light for its size. It is because it is designed with a lightweight aluminum frame –light but not that tough. It comes with two seats, the main seat and the SnugRide infant car seats which come with a front-adjust harness and a combination of 3-point and 5-point safety harnesses.
The stroller wheels are made of plastic. For extra smooth ride, the front swivel wheels have shocks and the swivels can be locked with the front buttons for straight steering. The Graco Metrolite Travel System baby stroller can be folded with one hand. It has a front swing-out tray, and a huge basket compartment that drops down.
The stroller handle is height-adjustable. The seats can be reclined fully for newborn babies. It also has a parent tray. Head supports are available in the stroller and in the infant car seat. Other full-sized travel system strollers are really heavy averaging 25 pounds, while the weight of the Graco Metrolite is only 17 pounds, making the Graco Metrolite a winner in the weight category.
This Graco Stroller is easy to maneuver but steering becomes difficult when pushing through bumpy rough sidewalks. It is not an all-terrain stroller and using it like it is will easily damage the stroller. The rear foot brake is also convenient for parents and assured the safety of babies.
What’s really neat is that the infant car seat snaps perfectly into the stroller and has extra clips on the back bars that hold the infant car seat in place and that is an extra safety measure I really like with this travel stroller. It is amazingly light and it is one of the features that made this baby stroller a huge hit to users.
It also has the innovative easy to use SnugRide series baby car seat. Its lightweight features and nice steering handle make the Graco Metrolite Travel System one of the easiest baby strollers to maneuver. If you are looking for a full-size stroller with the travel system feature that is not heavy or bulky, the Graco Metrolite Travel System is just perfect for you and your baby
