  • Access to the storage basket can be difficult when the seat is in a reclined position.
  • The larger Maclaren Techno XLR models are not ideal for petite mothers or handlers. This can be discouraging if you have a large toddler and need to reach down to lift your child out of the stroller.


Additional perks to the unique Techno XLR are its impressive versatility. This arc stroller cannot only be used for brief strolls through the park and other trips; it can be transformed into a travel system using car seats that are compatible with the Techno XLR stroller. Recommended car seats are Concord, Recaro Young Profi Plus, Britax, Cybex, and Maxi Cosi. Adaptors for these car seats are sold separately.

Rest assured, the Maclaren Techno XLR is for any type of travel on the terrain. Its spacious, plush seats have been made extra comfy with DuPont sorona insulation, footrest and recline detail. Wheel suspension will absorb bumps and provide a buffer on any rough terrain. Techno XLR stroller wheels are made of six-and-a-half-inch hard plastic with the manoeuvrability of a dime turn for smooth, easy handling.

While the Maclaren Techno XLR comes with many baby benefits, this arc stroller like many other umbrella strollers does not come with a large basket. Meaning a couple of extra items will fit in but not a huge changing bag or purse. The storage basket is also a bit difficult to reach when the stroller is in the recline position.

Folding the Techno XLR may be somewhat of a task on the first use, but several moms have testified to getting it right after the first few tries. This arc stroller can also be brought to a secure stop by engaging its braking pedals. A reasonable investment if you are not discouraged by its high price range.
