The UPPAbaby Cruz V2 has some unique, lesser known features and tricks too!

  1. The little rubber knobs on the handlebar make sure the leather never touches the ground when folding to the standing position!  
  2. Never fold your stroller to the ground - it will scratch your frame. To keep your frame looking pristine, lower the handlebar to the lowest position before folding so the stroller easily stands when folded!
  3. The seat fabric, canopy fabric, and basket fabric easily come off the frame and can be machine washed - just make sure no agitator and always air dry (*hot tip* - watch YouTube videos on how to remove and how to reattach or take a video of yourself taking them off so you can reverse your steps. The canopy wires can get tricky!)
  4. The under storage basket is rated for 30 pounds! Shopping bags, sporting gear, small dogs, and toddlers are all known to catch a ride! 
  5. So many accessories offered for cold winter days (Cozy Ganoosh), early newborn days (SnugSeat), hungry toddler days (snack tray), older sibling who needs a break days (PiggyBack board), etc. 
  6. ALL the wheels are easily removable - easy to clean or to make the stroller an even smaller footprint 
  7. If you’re flying, UPPAbaby makes a dedicated Cruz V2 Travel Bag! It’s amazing because it comes with the UPPAbaby TravelSafe program. Basically if the Cruz V2 is broken or damaged in any way while in the bag when flying, UPPAbaby will replace or repair it! Such a great program!
  8. MESA car seats and UPPAbaby bassinet snap on with no adapters needed!
