Veer Switchback Seat: Why it's the most versatile baby gear product!

In 2017, Veer made their entrance onto the baby gear scene with the introduction of their hybrid stroller wagon, the Cruiser. Since then, they've garnered significant attention for their innovative approach to baby gear. Their motto: "We exist to raise the wild in every child." Veer is dedicated to providing top-quality gear to active parents, empowering them to embark on adventures with their little ones by their side. They firmly believe that parenthood shouldn't mean sacrificing an active lifestyle. Veer encourages families to embrace the great outdoors and venture off the beaten path together, inspiring them to "veer" away from the mundane and swap screen time for exploring the wonders of the natural world.

Since 2017, Veer has broadened its product line to accommodate the diverse needs of parents who prioritize an active lifestyle. The heart of their range is the Switchback Seat, meticulously crafted with children in mind, seamlessly integrating into and enhancing each of their systems. In this article, we'll explore the versatility of the Switchback Seat and how Veer fulfills all outdoor needs for parents.

What is the Veer Switchback Seat?

The Switchback Seat transcends the typical role of a stroller seat, boasting versatility that extends to multiple functions and the ability to seamlessly click into any of Veer's mobility frames, offering a total of 6 uses!

The conventional stroller design typically emphasizes the stroller frame and its performance. Most stroller seats follow a similar pattern, constructed from plastic and fabrics, occasionally incorporating premium materials for added comfort for young passengers. While Veer indeed prioritizes crafting high-performing frames capable of navigating rough terrain, they also dedicate significant attention to seat design. Their emphasis on child comfort ensures that young adventurers remain comfortable throughout the entirety of their day's journey.

What makes the Veer Switchback Seat different from other stroller seats?

Breaking away from the conventional stroller seat mold, the Switchback Seat prioritizes child comfort. Given Veer's emphasis on exploring beyond paved sidewalks and roads, shock absorption becomes paramount. While most all-terrain strollers incorporate shock absorption systems within their frames, Veer takes it a step further by integrating this technology directly into the stroller seat. The Switchback Seat features an energy-absorbing exoskeleton within its bottom and back, along with dual seat dampeners for impact absorption. Each energy-absorbing component provides up to 10mm of deflection. This represents a truly remarkable innovation, unlike any stroller seat ever introduced in the baby gear industry.

Alongside its cushioned ride, the Switchback Seat offers additional comfort features. Its ventilated back ensures continuous airflow for temperature regulation. With the ability to recline to 4 positions, a multi-position calf-support, and an extendable high canopy with peek-a-book window, it provides ample sun protection and customizable positioning.

For parents, cleaning and maintenance are exceptionally convenient. The seat liner can be quickly and easily removed and is machine washable. Moreover, the seat itself is hose washable, making it easy to give it a quick rinse after a day well spent outside!

How can the Veer Switchback Seat be used for mobility?

Veer Switchback Seat on Veer Cruiser City

The Veer lineup consists of six transportation systems, all compatible with the Switchback Seat. These include the Cruiser and Cruiser XL, the Cruiser City and Cruiser City XL, and the &Roll and &Jog stroller frames. The Cruiser and Cruiser City are Veer's hybrid stroller-wagons, available in both two-seater and four-seater options. The Cruiser (2 seats) and Cruiser XL (4 seats), are designed for rough terrain, offering robust performance. On the other hand, the Cruiser City (2 seats)  and Cruiser City XL (4 seats), feature an intuitive stroller-like push, excelling in urban environments with great maneuverability.

The &Roll is a more traditional stroller, equipped with air-filled all-terrain wheels and the flexibility to convert from a single to a double stroller, accommodating two children. The &Jog serves as Veer's All-Terrain Running Stroller.

Beyond these six transportation systems, the Switchback Seat can also be paired with a bike (Veer Bike Mount and Rack sold separately), allowing children to partake in every cycling excursion.

Can the Veer Switchback Seat be used beyond transportation?

The versatility of the Switchback Seat goes beyond transportation, greatly enhancing its value. Equipped with straps, it can be paired with a dining chair, transforming into a portable booster high-chair. Additionally, it can be combined with the &Chill, a stand that converts the Switchback Seat into a camping chair, beach chair or baby lounger.
