GB is a baby product company that offers strollers and car seats and is taking the baby world by storm. The GB Evoq is their full-size, full-featured travel system that comes complete with a GB Asana 35 infant car seat.
The GB Evoq Stroller boasts a high weight capacity of 50 lbs. The seat is 11″ wide with a tall 21″ seat back and a measurement of 23″ from seat back to canopy. There is a padded, 5-point, adjustable harness to keep your little in safely in the seat but the buckle is so easy to do that toddlers will likely master it in no time.
The one-handed recline is easy to do and reclines the seat back to accommodate a newborn. For those babies and toddlers who prefer to face mom (or dad!), the seat is reversible.
An adjustable leg rest with an 8″ leg drop rounds out the features on the seat.
The canopy is large and features an additional zip open panel to extend it even further when needed. There is a large mesh window built into the canopy that lets you peek in on your child and allows air to circulate through the seat.
To accommodate both shorter and taller parents, the Evoq handle is adjustable from 39″ to 42″ from ground to handle. On the side of the handle, a handy cup holder attaches for a bottle or parent beverage.
Under the seat is a large basket that is accessible from every side of the stroller but we found it is easiest to put large diaper bags in and out from the front.
The Evoq rolls on hard rubber wheels measuring 9 1/2″ in the back and 7 1/2″ in the front. The front wheels are swivel wheels but have the ability to lock straight to tackle a bit of “mommy terrain” such as grass, playground mulch and gravel. A rear brake locks the stroller into place with just one step.
Folding the Evoq requires two hands but it is super easy to do. Just lift the two levers on the sides of the handle, gently push the handle forward, and the stroller folds down even with the seat attached. It’s not the most compact folded package but we found it still fits into a trunk of a sedan.
HAVE TWO CHILDREN?
A unique feature of the Evoq is the built-in stand-on board for an older toddler to hop on for a ride. The small platform is out of the way above the rear wheels and is stable enough that a 6 year old could stand on it without flipping the stroller even with an empty stroller seat.
The Evoq Travel System comes with the GB Asana 35 infant car seat. No, you cannot buy the Evoq stroller separately at this time. The Asana 35 accommodates a baby from 4 – 35 lbs or 32″. This car seat base has a unique FirmFit System that helps to provide an easier installation. When the base is installed with the vehicle seat belt, the FirmFit Arm helps achieve a better, tighter fit to the car with minimal effort by providing 20 lbs of additional force. The base also features LATCH if you prefer to install it that way. (NOTE: As always, you should only use either the vehicle seat belt OR the LATCH system to install the base and not both!)
We are also big fans of the Asana 35 FirmFit Harness. Simply pull the front strap to make the harness snug, and it conforms to the correct position on baby, every time. Harness and headrest move in harmony for constant Side Impact Protection, even as your baby grows.
Without any additional adapters needed, the Asana 35 snaps in easily to the Evoq frame turning it into a convenient travel system.
There are a bunch of accessories sold separately for the Evoq travel system from bug nets to diaper bags to rain guards. Make sure to check out our Baby Gizmo Video to see them all highlighted.
The GB Evoq Travel System retails for $429 so we definitely consider it a full-featured stroller at a mid-range price. It comes in two colors (Sterling and Teal) and will be adding a third (Midnight) color soon. Overall, the Evoq is stocked with luxury features such as a reversible seat and adjustable handle and really grows with your family especially with the stand on board.
