The Duo-SS Double Stroller is manufactured by Foundations Children's Products, a U.S.-based company that specializes in strollers for multiples. The Duo-SS Double is their side-by-side model, with seats beside each other. According to the manufacturer's website, the Duo-SS seats work independently, allowing them to be adjusted for each child. One unique feature of the Duo-SS Double (and of all Foundations strollers) is its handle-activated braking system -- when the handle is released the brakes engage, preventing accidental rolling. While that safety feature is nice, for slightly less than the price of the Duo-SS a better choice may be a well-reviewed stroller from a better-known manufacturer, such as the top-rated Combi Twin Sport (*Est. $240) which, at 22 pounds, weighs almost half as much as the Duo-SS Double.
We found one professional review of the Foundations Duo-SS Double Stroller at About.com and two owner reviews on Strollers.com. However, it seems that Foundations' target market is primarily hotel chains and childcare centers, which may explain why the stroller hasn't caught on for the average consumer.
Twins and multiples About.com guide Pamela Prindle Fierro rates and recommends the top 10 side-by-side double strollers for twins, but there is no mention of testing and there are no specific comparisons. (Note: ConsumerSearch is owned by About.com, but the two don't share an editorial affiliation.)
