The Gb Qbit Plus has all the features of a travel stroller that you could want. The lightweight build of this stroller lets you transport it from place to place with ease. Its super compact fold allows you to store it in an airplane’s overhead compartment, eliminating the hassle of checking it in. The giant sun canopy will give your little one coverage on long days out. You won’t need to wear a backpack on your back when pushing the Qbit Plus since the large storage compartment can hold all your belongings. You and your baby will love this luxurious travel stroller no matter what environment you’re in. The Gb Qbit is another version of this stroller, but lacks many of the features of the Qbit+. The price difference between the Qbit and Qbit+ is approximately $20, so we recommend the Qbit+ over the the original Qbit.

Durability

Excellent – 9/10

This little stroller can handle a lot of wear. It is perfect for throwing into the trunk or onto the plane and you won’t need to worry about it breaking out of the blue. This is a tough stroller made for bringing around with you. It certainly hold up much better than some other umbrella strollers.

Weight

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller is lightweight. It is approximately 16.8 pounds. While not the lightest travel stroller, this one has a sturdy built and more features than most. The weight is still light enough for parents to bring round without causing problems. It is perfect for bringing on the subway or up and down stairs.

Brakes

Excellent – 10/10

The brakes on this stroller work great. There is one pedal located between the two rear wheels. It is smooth and is easy to engage and disengage.

Compact

Excellent – 10/10

You won’t find a stroller that gets as compact as this one. It can easily fit into an overhead compartment. You can bring this stroller to the airport and onto your flight without checking it in. This is a lifesaver for parents traveling with small children! You can also throw it into your car for road trips!

“Love it! I’ve been eyeing this and waiting for it to come to the US. After reading reviews on every umbrella stroller this was my first choice. Weight wise, it’s comparable to most umbrella strollers at 14 lbs… I also wanted a stroller mainly for traveling on a plane. We fly often to California and didn’t want to always check in our vista or any stroller.”

Ease of Use

Excellent – 10/10

The Qbit+ is easy to use. This no-frills stroller has all the necessities when it comes to a travel stroller – one-hand fold, storage space, car seat compatibility, a good sunshade, and is lightweight. There’s not much left to be desired for a travel stroller.

Folding

Excellent – 10/10

This stroller has one-hand fold capability. If you carrying luggage or have one of your arms full, then you can still manage to collapse this stroller. If you are traveling around without a partner, you can hold your baby and fold the stroller at the same time. Since it folds so small, you can take it directly onto the aircraft with you! It does not have a traditional umbrella fold. Instead, it turns into a small cube (hence the name Qbit!) As an added bonus, the stroller stands on its own when folded.

Grip

Very Good – 8/10

The grip on the Gb Qbit+ is fantastic. You can push around the stroller with one hand. Although the handlebar is not height adjustable, it is an adequate height for most parents. The handlebar is covered in a cushioned foam material.

Maneuverability

Excellent – 10/10

Maneuvering this stroller is a effortless. The wheels turn easily are covered with rubber for good traction. There is all-wheel suspension, that not only makes the ride smoother for your little one, but it makes pushing the stroller painless. You’ll have no problems weaving through crowds and on sidewalks with the Qbit+! Compared to to other compact travel strollers, the wheels are slightly bigger for an easier push.

“This stroller is surprisingly smooth. And compact! I like the wheels having a rubber coating and all wheel suspension so it’s smooth. The basket is accessible from the front and back of the stroller and the seat is a great size and reclines back for the younger babies. The canopy Is decent and i like the viewing panels well. The stroller does have a super easy one hand fold and in fact does stand.”

Rough Terrain

Very Good – 8/10

Crossing more treacherous terrain, like grass or wood chips, is no problem for this stroller. The all-wheel suspension and rubber wheels can take on whatever landscape you are navigating. The wheels are relatively small, so the stroller won’t fare well on trails or the like. But for everyday terrain, this should handle it pretty well.

Accessories

Very Good – 8/10

The Gb Qbit+ comes with a few accessories. The bumper bar is included and is a great add-on to this stroller. There is also a raincover in the box. This can come in handy if you are taking a trip to a wetter climate. There is no cup holder, which may be one of the few negatives to this stroller. The Qbit plus is compatible with the Gb Asana Car seat.

Easy to Assemble

Excellent – 9/10

Putting the stroller together is not difficult or challenging. You’ll have a fully set up stroller shortly after the stroller is taken out of the box.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 8/10

Cleaning this stroller is pretty straight forward. Spot treating with warm water and soap is the best way to remove any dirt or stains. The footrest is black towards the bottom, which help to hide evidence of dirt.

“This is a perfect stroller for life in the city! The folding mechanism is brilliant, it’s light enough for me to carry up and down the subway stairs, and the handling is great. My 5 mo old daughter really enjoys it and I think she’s very comfortable. Huge upgrade from what we had before, and less expensive than some other options we considered. “

Storage

Excellent – 9/10

The storage compartment on this stroller is big enough for your essentials. It may not be the biggest storagement bin, but for such a small and lightweight stroller, the storage is great. You won’t have to worry about carrying everything in a separate bag all day. This is important when traveling, especially if you are out all day or decide to go shopping.

Child Comfort

Very Good – 10/10

Your baby will love riding in this stroller. The seat is heavily padded. The harness straps also have a sufficient amount of padding.  The sun canopy is huge and will protect them from the sun. The seat has a true full recline, so your little one can take naps while your are out. The footrest adjust heights too. You can use this stroller for your newborn as well. It is bassinet and car seat compatible.

Sun Canopy

Excellent – 10/10

The sun canopy is huge! Your baby will be well-protected against the sun. The canopy has a plastic peek-a-boo window so you can keep an eye on them. Even if you are outside all day, your baby will be safe and in the shade.

Suspension

Excellent – 8/10

The Gb Qbit Plus has all-wheel suspension, which is uncommon amongst lightweight travel strollers. If you are taking your baby to the city, to the boardwalk, or to Europe, they will enjoy a smooth ride.



What do Experts say?

gb qubit plus

“The Qbit+ is a pram with good features. It looks luxury, but isn’t over priced, it’s very comfy and spacious, yet light to carry, and folds into a great little compact cube. A well designed pram.” – Made For Mums

 

“The Qbit+ is engineered to near perfection, as far as lightweight strollers go. With a flat recline and a cozy head-hugging pillow, it accommodates infants from birth and the larger wheels will hopefully glide better over uneven pavement. The only thing that’s missing for me is an adjustable handle bar, but perhaps that’s just asking too much from a lightweight/compact stroller ” – Daily Baby Finds

 

“The Qbit+ is a small but might package that feels rock steady when empty or laden with a tiny child or a larger toddler. The chunky wheels are built to last and the all round quality of the stroller is striking. The seat is versatile offering travel system, from birth and toddler travel solutions and the fabrics are stylish and practical. If you want a tiny folder that’s great looking but super practical then you should definitely consider the Qbit+.” – Pushchair Expert
