Product Description

City Elite in use
The Baby Jogger City Elite is stylish, lightweight, and easy to use. view larger

Luxury meets performance

If the City Mini is a compact car, then the City Elite is an SUV. With its large tyres and high weight capacity, the City Elite provides luxury and comfort over any terrain. This stroller lets you go off-road in style, while still offering Baby Jogger's convenient quick-fold technology.

Welcome to the fold

Lift one strap and the City Elite folds itself, simply and compactly. It really is as easy as it sounds. Also, the auto-lock will lock the stroller for transportation or storage.

Parent storage console

The City Elite offers an array of storage, including a built-in parent console that keeps your most used items at your fingertips.

Comfortable reclining seat

The City Elite seat was built for comfort. It reclines to a near flat position with vents and a retractable weather cover to make sure that your child is comfy and safe while you stroll. The raised kicker is ideal for accommodating small children and provides easy access to the under seat basket.

Protective sun canopy

People love the protective sun canopy because it really throws a lot of shade on a sunny day. It has a peek-a-boo window with magnetic closure so you can quietly check on your little one, and it can be adjusted to multiple positions as you open or close it. Two side vents provide ample air circulation to keep your child comfortable when it's hot out.

Lightweight swivel wheels

You can set your 12-inch front wheel to swivel for your daily obstacle course or lock for long distance strolling. The all-terrain tyres let you make your own rules, giving you full control on where and how you go. The City Elite also offers a front-wheel suspension that provides a smooth ride for your little passenger.

Convert to a travel system

The City Elite can become a travel system in a heartbeat using the Car Seat Adapter; just choose the adapter compatible with your car seat, snap it in, and your travel system is ready to go. You can also add a pram to handle even the smallest of passengers (Car Seat Adapter and prams sold separately).

Living in central London I really didn't need this slightly heavier version designed more for rougher terrain and maybe should have bought the GT but my ego wanting the best for my child got the better of me. Having said that it is still an amazing pushchair, light and very easy to manoeuvre. The one hand folding mechanism is really very easy and my 1 year old seems to enjoy the comfort. Unless you plan to use this on rough terrain you may be better off with the city mini or the GT. Maybe we'll go for some nice weekends away in the country to justify my choice.

Found this on Amazon for much cheaper than the stores locally. Early days yet but it seems like it will do the job that it's designed for. I've no experience of other strollers so I can't compare but it's heavier than I expected.

I had already decided to buy a baby jogger elite, rrp £400. Searched to find the best price. I was sceptical about such a good deal but this arrived earlier than quoted and is exactly as described and exact match to that I had chosen in store. I have not been able to find a better pushchair for quality, price, practicality and longevity.

Fantastic Stroller - smooth ride 7 Mar 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
We loved this stroller, though we didn't end up keeping it. Here is why: We actually had trouble finding this stroller in a store, therefore we ordered this, the BOB Revolution CE, and the Baby Jogger City Mini GT. After setting up all three, it turned out that this one was the largest - both in length and width. The features were incredible - including the foot lift, the pockets up by the push bar, and air vents on the side of the canopy. However, it was just too wide for what we were wanting. We wanted to be able to wheel through stores and the city with ease. We also wanted to have the folded stroller take up less space. If we had a larger car and a larger storage spot in our home, we would have kept this stroller. By the way, the wheels are SO easy to remove!

Just so you know, the BOB Revolution CE was smaller once set up, but it was the most bulky of the three when folded up. Plus, the wheels need more maintenance and are more difficult to remove (not bad, but no where near as easy as the Baby Jogger wheels). Also, the BOB push bar was not adjustable - and since I'm only 5 feet, it was uncomfortably high!

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT was the stroller we kept. It was smaller than the Elite and the BOB, but still had reasonable wheels for a good ride. It doesn't have all the features of the Elite, but still has the easy fold, the great large canopy, the easy recline and easy to remove wheels.

All three had fairly small storage baskets - but they all had pockets in the back of the seat back. All had very smooth rides, though the BOB was probably the best.

Okay, this was disorganized, but I hope it helped!

2012 model is a downgrade! 18 April 2012
By Rebecca - Published on
Colour Name: Black
I'll start by saying I'm a Baby Jogger fanatic. I've owned a 2009 City Elite Single, 2009 City Elite Double, 2011 City Mini Single, this 2012 City Elite Single (which I returned), and now a 2012 City Mini GT Single. I feel that they really missed the boat in this year's 2012 City Elite - in my opinion, it is a definite downgrade over years prior.

I'll start with the 4 things I don't like about this current model:

1. The "upgraded" fabric (which I hear is more like the City Select). It is a pain to try to keep clean. The prior year's fabric, just brushed things off in a second and you could wipe anything clean with a baby wipe in seconds! I spent a good 30 minutes trying to get crumbs out of this 2012 seat...I don't know how to explain it other then things just stick to it and are harder to get off. A stroller where kids may eat and drink should be made of something that can easily be wiped off, not heavy canvas. This was ultimately my biggest reason for returning this year's stroller.

2. They took away the middle canopy window!!! :( I cannot figure out why they would do this - I used the middle canopy window the most out of the 2 windows. Now, the only time you can peek through the window is when the canopy is ALL the way forward. The problem with this is that when the canopy is all the way forward, no child can see out of'd only put it all the way forward if they fell asleep or if its as raining or something. So basically, (as BJ told me), they figured most parents only wanted to peek in when baby/child was sleeping (which is when you'd have the canopy all the way down). This was a huge fail on their part as I liked being able to see down at my daughter at times when she wasn't sleeping. Just to name a few, when I'd have my headphones on and couldn't hear her well or if she was having a snack/drink.

3. The straps. In 2011 and prior models, you used to be able to remove the shoulder straps so that it could just be a 3pt. harness. While a 5pt. harness is great for an infant, it makes an older toddler/preschooler feel very constrained. I loved on my old elite that I was able to remove the shoulder straps and my daughter would just be buckled across her lap. On this 2012 model, they've now sewn the shoulder straps to the rest of the straps and the only way to remove them is if you cut them off. I was able to get BJ send me an old pair of straps, so that if I wanted to cut them off I could, but I feel like this should 3pt. option should have been left as is.

4. The parent console. In years prior, the parent console contained 3 open pockets (that you could fit drinks in) and a flap in front that had 3 smaller pockets. The flap with extra pockets was removed in this model, so there are now only 3 instead of 6. It's not a huge deal, but I did use the flap pockets to keep my phone and ID in. Just another example of the things they took away on this "upgraded" model.

The only actual upgrade I saw in this 2012 model compared to my 2009 model is they added magnets to the footwell flap (although I didn't use it much anyways, magnets are better then velcro) and the automatic lock, which was never a huge issue to me anyways, but does make sense. I returned this 2012 elite and bought the 2012 Mini GT and am so pleased. I wish the GT had the magnetic windows and side vent of the elite, but for $50 less, it far surpasses this current model Elite! If you are set on an Elite, I would try to find a model from 2011 or prior. Hopefully they fix things in 2013 or at least bring all the positive elite features to the GT (magnetic windows, side vents, console).

Love it, but will miss my extra window... 17 Jan 2012
By Sarah Costello - Published on
Colour Name: Black
I really love this stroller. I've been looking for an all-terrain stroller for a while, so I decided to stick with Baby Jogger (we own a City Mini as well) because I love the way they fold and the HUGE canopies. There are a few notable differences between the newer 2012 model and prior year models. 1) The bar in front of the basket has been lowered a bit, which is supposed to give better access but I can't say it makes too much of a difference. 2) No more racing stripe. The stroller is now solid color and comes in Red, Black, or Sand. I have the Sand and it's great. If you're worried about it showing the dirty, don't be. 3) New fabric. It's a much heavier weight fabric, like heavy-duty cloth. Definitely an improvement, in my opinion. 4) All black frame 5) Only one peek-a-boo window. As I write this, the Amazon product description states it has two peek-a-boo windows but I can confirm that it in fact only has the one. The window on the middle canopy panel is no longer there. I was pretty disappointed in this change, and can't figure out for the life of me why they would get rid of the extra window. (At least they didn't get rid of the side vent panels, though.) 6) The parent console includes 3 sections which serve as cup holders, but no longer includes any additional storage pockets.

Overall, the 2012 model includes some nice upgrades and a couple of surprising (at least, to me) omissions.

Best All Terrain Stroller on the Market 2 April 2014
By O_research_C_toomuch_D - Published on
Colour Name: Stone Verified Purchase
Hands down the best stroller I've tried or owned.
3 years ago I purchased the Phil and Ted's Explorer Sport. I sold it after 1.5 years due to it's clumsy fold, poor steering and small canopy. I then purchased the Britax B-Agile (as my son was 2 and I discovered that my best intension of running with my child was just that, an intension - I'd rather run solo then try to push a stroller). The B-Agile was decent. Had a great fold and canopy, BUT I missed the all terrain nature of the P&T. We do a lot of 'city' strolling, over bumpy sidewalks, to the park etc. and the B-Agile was less than stellar for these applications. It rode very nicely on smooth surfaces and fit wonderful in the back of my sedan, but still didn't fit the bill entirely.
With our second baby on the way I had an entirely new list of needs and wants for a stroller. I wanted the all terrain features of my P&T, with the canopy of my Britax. I also wanted an easy fold, good maneuverability, car seat compatible, foot rest and something that would grow with my baby.
This stroller is all of that and MORE! I must have gone to Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us 10 times to try out different strollers. Each stroller I tried had one feature I liked, but something else I didn't. Whether it be a fixed wheel (joovy, bob sport, fit), small canopy (graco jogger, baby trend, jeep, schwinn) or poor reviews (nearly every other stroller). I thought I was going to be stuck buying a BOB because everyone LOVES it so much. But each time I tried it out in store or a friend's stroller, I just didn't get the hype. It's BIG, and it's clearly a running stroller (duh). But it's not an everyday, bop around town, go to the park or on a hike, throw it in your car stroller. And it's expensive!
Thru reading numerous upon numerous reviews and blog posts (baby gizmo, consumer reports, baby gear lab etc.), watching youtube video after youtube video, I finally narrowed my search down to the Chicco Activ3 and the City Elite. Both had all of the features I was looking for (the City Elite taking a slight edge on features with the footrest, and magnetic closures on the canopy). The compromise was the included belly bar/included travel system on the Chicco. But the color and sleekness of the City Elite finally won over the Chicco (both the same price). The Chicco was just too 'sporty' for me (it is only available in navy blue) and the plastic on the front tire was a bit too big and cumbersome (it also lacked a peekaboo window and vents on the canopy.)

The only other sacrifice I had to make with the City Elite was the hard cup holder that comes with a few all terrain/joggers. Not a huge deal breaker for me.

All and all this is the BEST stroller I've tested/researched/owned. It has a ton of high end features (did I mention shocks for rough sidewalks?, adjustable handlebar, included parent console, canopy vents, peekaboo window) with a price that's pretty hard to beat in comparison to the other all terrain/joggers out there.
You won't be disappointed.

I cant say enuff about this stroller, we upgraded from the city mini which has much smaller wheels and felt tippy with my huge daughter in it. This is just fantastic and I wish I would have found this stroller along time ago. the seat height is perfect for taller kids with a 21" seat back and a 26" height to the top of the canopy which mind you extends so far that the sun will never get into a riders eyes. the buckles are longer than most strollers offer meaning they will secure my 55lb daughter with out being overly tight in the belly/chest area and are not easily removed by toddlers who try to escape. the handle bar is adjustable and comes with its own parent tray. the wheels are large which makes up most of its weight but the push is a dream we've taken this to the mall and on hilly park grounds with ease! the hood also has vents on the sides which allow for more air circulation and a window type view for older children who want to see out of the hood with out being blinded by the sunlight.

my daughter is 55lbs, 41" tall and fits this stroller with ease, my 10yr old even fits (she had to test it out also).
