The Thule Urban Glide is part of the thule Strollers test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Traditional and other strollers models like the Urban Glide 2 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Ease of use Ease of use is based primarily on ease of using and adjusting the safety harness, folding and unfolding, adjusting the backrest, lifting and carrying, engaging wheel brakes and car seat removal and installation (only for compatible strollers).
Maneuverability Maneuverability is assessed by trained testers, taking into account how well each stroller, with a weight bag “passenger,” maneuvers on our course: in S-turns through cones, in narrow sections, on grass, dirt trails with tree roots and other debris, uphill, downhill and up and down curbs.
Safety Safety is assessed by testing to the requirements of the federal stroller safety standard, 16 CFR Parts 1112 and 1227, which incorporates, by reference, the most current version of the ASTM stroller safety standard, ASTM F833-19. We also put strollers through Stability and Braking and other tests designed by CR.
