The GB Lyfe Travel System is a great option for families that need a stroller that can accommodate their newborns as well as they’re going children. The GB Lyfe Travel System is actually relatively lightweight for a travel system and can be brought on road trips and walks in the park. The wheels are sturdy and has rear end suspension so the ride is quite smooth with this travel system. The sun shade is generous and has a mesh background so the user can view the baby, however there is no peekaboo window. It also has a lot of storage space below for those who need to store their diaper bag or regular backpack.

Durability

Very Good – 8/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System is sturdily built and will keep child of all sizes safe from infancy. The frame is built with aluminum which is both sturdy and lightweight.

Weight

Very Good – 8/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System is relatively light for a travel system that  can carry so much! It weighs in at 24 lbs, which is just as light as a standard stroller. This will make the system easy to load and unload out of a car and carry it up and down stairs if need be.

Brakes

Very Good – 7/10

The brakes on the gb Lyfe Travel System are located on the rear end wheels. Each wheel has its own individual brake. The front wheels can also lock when going over rougher terrain.

Compact

Good  – 6/10

The gb Lyfe is a travel system. So it is not the most compact because of all the features it possess such as the ability to attach a car seat, bassinet and the pram system. It measures at 38.1 x 20.4 x 19.2 unfolded.

“This is a very nice stroller system for our 6 month old.”

Ease of Use

Excellent – 9/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System is very easy to use. This stroller is a package deal that comes with a car seat attachable to the pram frame. On top of this everything attaches with a click of a button. The travel system also comes with a cup holder and a basket below to help store all the items that a parent will ever have to bring with them. One of the only negatives about this stroller is that its leg rest is non-adjustable.

Folding

Excellent – 9/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System does require two hands to fold. But it is a very easy process. It is small enough to be stored in the back of the trunk or in a closet. However it is at its smallest when the user is using the the seat mode, not when the user folds the stroller with a car seat intact.

Grip

Very Good – 8/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System has a good handle bar that is non-adjustable.  It is 40 inches high and is easy to use for those who are average height. Those who are shorter might have to hold the handlebar slightly lower than others. The handlebar is also padded with soft foam which makes it easier to grip and push.

Maneuverability

Excellent – 10/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System has very good maneuverability. It has front wheels that can swivel 360 degrees and can also lock if the stroller needs to be taken over some uneven terrain. The wheels are also extremely sturdy and are no-flat tires. Which means that these tires are made not to burst under large amounts of pressure.

“The stroller is based on the design of something like the Uppababy and sure looks like one from afar. Once you start using it, it’s clear it’s not that high end expensive (expensive strollers FEEL expensive!). But all in, a similar combo of bassinet + car seat + stroller for Uppababy would run you around $800. For a third of that price, you get a full travel system that goes from bassinet to toddler stroller and sure has a LOT of features at this price range.”

Rough Terrain

Good – 6/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System is not meant to be used on rough terrain. Its wheels we’re not built for rough terrain, unlike the average jogging stroller.

Accessories

Very Good – 8/10

The gb Lyfe Trave System does not have many accessories. All the things that come with the stroller e.g. the cup holder, bassinet, seat, and car seat are all the things needed for the usage of the stroller. The only thing missing from the set up is a rain cover.

Easy to Assemble

Excellent – 9/10

Assembling this stroller is extremely easy. When ordered all the part come mostly assembled. The only things that need to be attached include the wheels and cup holder.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 8/10

The best way to clean the gb Lyfe Travel System is with wet wipes and sponges. The system is not fully detachable. However most of the material is water proof so stains are hard to come by.

“Overall: seems like a good system for little tykes, but you will definitely need another carseat after only a few months, and will probably want a bigger and more accessible stroller by about 9 months”

Storage

Excellent – 10/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System has a huge amount of storage space for the user. With a large basket below the seat that can fit many items even a large backpack.

Child Comfort

Excellent – 10/10

The gb Lyfe Travel System is a comfortable stroller that can easily be converted to cater to the child’s needs.

The seat is padded and extra padding can be added for a new born. The stroller also has a five point harness which keep the child in the stroller snug and fit.

Sun Canopy

Excellent – 10/10

The sun canopy of the gb Lyfe Travel System is water proof! It is very generous and covers a lot of space over the child’s head. It has a small mesh section in the back where the air can flow through and the parent can watch over their child!

The gb Lyfe Travel System has rear end suspension on the wheels. This is to help aid the user which a smooth ride.


What do Experts say?

“The Lyfe is the perfect stroller/travel system for the everyday mom. For $379, you get an amazing infant car seat (the Asana 35 LTE) and the stroller itself. The stroller is modular, which means the seat comes off to forward-face or rear-face. This is a feature that people usually pay big bucks for.” – Lucie’s List

“The first thing I noticed as I pulled this system out of the box was the color. It’s such a gorgeous maroon red and perfect for either a boy or girl. The infant car seat is already fully assembled and the stroller assembly was simply popping the wheels and cup holder into place. It was out of the box and ready to go in less than 5 minutes.” – Thrifty Nifty Mommy
