The three-wheeled Go-Go Babyz Urban Advantage isn't a jogging stroller but is designed for urban terrain, such as gravel driveways or paths, and for tight turns in stores. Experts and owners particularly like its unique kickstand feature, which solves the tipping issue that's sometimes reported as a problem with three-wheeled strollers. They also like its good maneuverability with a full-swivel front wheel. Owners say it's comfortable for baby and the tall handle is good for taller parents. It's compatible with the Graco SnugRide and Graco SafeSeat infant car seats.
In spite of the Urban Advantage's easy-fold claims, a number of owners complain that folding it is difficult, and many also gripe about struggling to both engage and disengage the brakes. One expert review says quality issues with this model don't make it worth purchasing, even though it tends to cost less than comparable three-wheeled strollers. Although it's priced significantly higher, the well-reviewed BOB Revolution SE (*Est. $313) is a durable three-wheeled, all-terrain stroller that's more likely to last through your child's stroller years.

This site includes an informative video on the Go-Go Babyz Urban Advantage. It demonstrates features, but gives no feedback on real-world situations and doesn't compare the Urban Advantage to other strollers. The demo reviews the kickstand feature, and it's easy to see that the stroller is bulky when folded. The site also includes a full list of specs.
