Daddy 5-Point Review
Ships fully assembled! No hassle, no assembly, no nada!
The sporty and stylish look of the Maclaren Triumph comes in Black/Charcoal, Cardinal/Charcoal (see main image), Medieval Blue/Silver, Highland Green/Grey Dawn and in Plum/Grey Dawn.
In case you want to get a little more creative, you can choose from a variety of Maclaren seat liners for your seat padding as well. Check out images below for the 5 color options.
Ease of opening and Closing
Opening this baby up can take a little practice. But once you’ve got it down, it’s designed to be a one-hand process (you just have to get over the learning curve). Over time I’m now able to break this thing down with 1 hand while holding my 4 month old in the other. I have the patience level of my 2 year old in case that’s a point of reference for you (I’m kidding, but not really).
There is also an automatic lock on the side that holds the frame in place once it’s folded and it also comes with a built-in shoulder carry strap similar to the Summer Infant 3D Lite Convenience Stroller.
Aside from meeting the highest safety standards in the world, the Maclaren Triumph boasts 5 inch wheels that enable a smooth ride and also give you the option of locking your front wheels for a safe ride when the road gets bumpy. Keep in mind, however, the Triumph, is not made for anything too adventurous. (This is not an all terrain stroller.) But, it will certainly manage the occasional bump on the road, or as I call it, ‘the parking lot at Daycare’.
The lightweight aluminum frame of the Triumph can support up to 55 pounds, which is more than most umbrella strollers of this size, which usually support between 30 and 40 pounds. Nicely done Maclaren! It also offers 2 reclining positions, which is far superior to many umbrella strollers that don’t recline at all.
Here’s the trade off, you’re paying a bit more for the Maclaren Triump vs. some of the other umbrella models. You have to decide if you’d rather pay a little extra for a quality stroller that lasts longer (up to 55 lbs) rather than paying for a less expensive one and have to run to the store when your child no longer fits. Here’s a case of “you get what you pay for.”
***theDaddy.Guide TIP*** The Triumph is for babies starting at 6 months. If you want an umbrella stroller that has the capacity for a newborn and you want to stay within the Maclaren family, other options such as the Maclaren Quest or the Maclaren Mark II can be used for newborns up until 35 months (55 pounds). Both these models come with the “Newborn Safety System” to position the smallest passengers for comfort and safety, with an adjustable neck support.
