Durability

Very Good- 8/10

The fabric of the Scooter X2 is 600D, which is very durable. It does not fade easily and is dirt and water-resistant. It is made up of a strong, sturdy frame that can withstand impact. The wheels on this stroller have good tread and roll nicely on flat surfaces. This scooter will stay in almost-perfect condition even after hundreds of uses.

Weight

Very Good – 7/10

The Scooter X2 weighs 32 pounds total, which is not very heavy for a double stroller such as this one. While this stroller is relatively lightweight compared to other double strollers, it is not the lightest stroller out there. However, it is still relatively easy to pick up and stow away into the back of your car.

Brakes

Very Good – 8/10

This buggy comes equipped with easy-to-access parking brakes. They are located in the posterior part of the stroller, on each rear wheel. This location makes it very easy to engage these brakes very quickly when needed using your feet for parents who may be in a rush.

Compact

Good- 6/10

This Joovy Scooter X2 double stroller is scored a 6 out of 10 in this category. This is because it is fairly wide and may not fit through some doors without being folded up slightly beforehand. Extremely narrow doors will most definitely be a challenge with this stroller.

” I love how far back both seats can recline, to accommodate each child. The su shade is nice and big, and I love the large peep hole for me to see them. The mesh holders in each seat are great so each kid can have their drink/snack/toy. Tons of undercarriage storage!! Love that!”

Ease of Use

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller received an almost-perfect score in this category! It is easy to take full advantage of this stroller. Incredibly easy to push, steer, and assemble, it is also not difficult to stow away/put into storage if needed. This makes it suitable for storage in the trunk for long car rides.

Folding

Very Good – 8/10

This double stroller can be folded up easily using only one hand. To fold it, all that’s needed is to recline both seats, then engage the brakes, twist a handle, and then fold it down. It does not automatically lock into place, but a clip will hold it together very well. Additionally, the X2 stands on its own when folded.

Grip

Very Good – 8/10

The handlebar on the X2 is not adjustable, but it sits at a comfortable level for parents of all heights. The handlebars are also comfortable and easy to grip while you’re pushing this stroller. The handles also sit at a comfortable angle so that the process of pushing this stroller will not affect your posture.

Maneuverability

Very Good- 8/10

You will need both hands to steer and maneuver this stroller due to its size, but the double front wheels on this stroller make it very easy to maneuver through even tight spaces. These double front wheels certainly add a higher degree of stability to this stroller, making up for the lack of suspension.

“The massive storage, ease in maneuvering & the value pricing make this a no-brainer. I had no trouble fitting the stroller through doorways * tighter spaces. Don’t fall into the trap that more money always means better quality. I would normally believe this to be true but in this case, Joovy is a solid choice & will save you about $300. “

Rough Terrain

Good – 5/10

This stroller only received a 5 out of 10 in this category. This is not an all-terrain stroller. It functions at its prime on flat surfaces. Its larger size and lack of suspension make traversing rocky trails or grassy paths quite difficult, especially with two sleepy passengers.

Accessories

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller comes with two mesh cupholders, a belly bar that kids love, two cup holders, and an undercarriage storage basket. The cupholder, however, is not designed for open containers, just closed ones.  This leaves open the possibility of your drink spilling if it is in a cup rather than a bottle.

Easy to Assemble

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller is very easy to assemble, allowing it to score a 9 out of 10 in this category. Even though it is a double stroller, it includes just as many components of assembly as a single stroller, if not less. Reviewers agree that this stroller can be assembled within 30 minutes, or even 20 minutes.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 8/10

Cleaning your stroller is made simple with the X2. Wetting a washcloth with a little bit of water and wiping down dirty areas of the fabric of this stroller as you see fit should be sufficient enough to keep the X2 in pristine shape.

“he stroller has a TON of underneath storage [2 compartments!!!!]; a HUUUUUGE sun shade/visor [a must for me] — although I do wish it was ratcheted and could adjust depending on the light’s direction; both seats fully recline so children can be changed or take a much needed nap in it complete with lots of privacy and darkness [a must for me]; it’s very easy, and FUN, to push, turn, and navigate; and the optional bar is great for my older kids to put their legs up on when their seat is fully reclined to relax and stretch out their legs, too.”

Storage

Very Good – 8/10

The storage area of the X2 is large enough and versatile enough to suit all of a parent and child’s needs! The undercarriage storage area has been described as “giant” by many reviewers and can fit anything from toys It also comes with two zippered pockets that can easily store any miscellaneous smaller items.

Child Comfort

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller scored very high in this category. Its extra features, such as the foot and head rests, make long rides very relaxing for young passengers. Additionally, both seats on the X2 have a multi-position recline, and each seat can be adjusted separately from the other.

Sun Canopy

Very Good – 7/10

The oversized canopy on the X2 offers full protection from the sun. However, one child might receive more protection than the other depending on positioning. This canopy also comes with a kick out visor that offers extra protection from rain.

Suspension

There is no suspension system on this stroller.


What do Experts Say?

Joovy X2
The Joovy X2 double stroller comes with two convenient mesh pockets!

“This stroller has just about everything you want and needs at a budget-friendly cost. This is a side-by-side double stroller that fits through any door over thirty inches. It offers tons of storage space, zipper pockets on the back for mobile phones, keys, or your wallet, 2 cup holders, reclining seats and adjustable leg rests, not to mention a large under the seat storage bin. This device is made of quality material, making it very durable.”- Baby Stroller Lab 

“In my opinion, the Joovy X2 Double Stroller is absolutely worth it. It serves as an excellent introduction to high-quality double walking strollers without approaching the higher prices of models by BOB, Baby Jogger, and Mountain Buggy. Does it come with every feature under the sun? Not at all. However, when it comes to the canopy and basket functionality, it meets and exceeds quality levels in strollers costing two or three times as much while still coming close in a number of other areas.” –  The Car Crash Detective
