The Graco Modes Travel System is sturdy and built to last. The frame is made from a black finish metal that will take a beating!

Weight

Good – 6/10

This stroller weighs 24lbs, not including the car seat. So it is not the lightest stroller but it makes the weight up in functionality

Brakes

Very Good – 8/10

The rear wheels each have their own individual lock to lock the rear wheels. The front wheel can also lock if the user wants to go over some other terrain.  

Compact

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Modes Travel System is quite compact especially when folded, it can easily fit in the back of a sedan. The car seat of course can be stored with the child in it to make up for the lost space.

“Click, click, click and go! This stroller has everything needed (review from a first time Mom). I spent at least 2 months looking for strollers, testing them out and eyeing sale prices – this one I purchased around $330 but it’s worth it (it’s cheaper now)!”

Ease of Use

Excellent – 9/10

Using the Graco Modes Travel System is a piece of cake. It has the ability of click connect, which means that any accessories/car seats that have the click connect capability are easily applicable to this stroller. The recline is easy to use, and the canopy is easy to extend. There’s nothing more that you need than this stroller’s 3 in 1 capability

Folding

Excellent – 9/10

The folding mechanism is very easy. The Graco Modes folds with one hand, and there is a one hand latch mechanism that can be used to fold the stroller with the child in the users hand. 

Grip

Very Good  – 8/10

The Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller does have a padded handlebar. Which makes the stroller easier to push and hold onto. However the only thing missing is that it is not adjustable.

Maneuverability

Very Good – 8/10

The stroller has great maneuverability with wheels that swivel 360 degrees there is no where this stroller can’t go. On top of this the wheels are coated with hard rubber which makes them quite durable.

“Hands down this is the best purchased I have made for my son! It’s storage basket is huge. It has so many different ways you can use it, and with the seat inside of it, it covers the entire car seat.”

Rough Terrain

Good – 5/10

For a travel system the Graco Modes is not made for rough terrain. The wheels are too small and they do not have suspension.

Accessories

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller comes with more than enough to have an excellent ride. It comes with a car seat, stroller seat and bassinet option, the user has the ability to buy far more accessories. The user will need to buy a car seat adapter in order to get their car seat to fit into the system.

Easy to Assemble

Very Good- 7/10

The stroller is easy to assemble. there are no tools required, but there are lot of parts to attach. So be ready to spend a good 15 minutes making the stroller.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 7/10

Cleaning can be done easily, the stroller’s padding in its seat can be put in the wash, but must be hang dried. On top of this light soap can be used on the frame and other parts.

” like it. Is really practice. Comes with the car seat, base and stroller for a very reasonable price. Is not heavy at all.”

Storage

Excellent – 9/10

This stroller has a large basket underneath the seat to store small bags and essentials. On top of this there is a mesh pocket behind the seat!

Child Comfort

Excellent – 9/10

The Graco Modes is a comfortable ride for the child since it allows them to have extra padding with the seat. On top of this the child can be switched to any position they want since the system is basically 3 in 1! They can sit upright, lying flat or facing away from the parent or facing towards the parent!

Sun Canopy

Very Good – 8/10

The canopy is quite decent and extends quite far! It will be able to cover the child really well.

Suspension

Good – 5/10

There is no suspension on these wheels, however they are durable.
