Getting a stroller for your baby is often easier said than done with so many models available on the market. When you decide on getting a stroller that is sturdy, versatile, and stylish; look no further than the Baby Jogger City Mini GT.

It is one of the most popular city strollers on the market because it offers many features you and your baby will enjoy. It has large wheels, which means that you can push it through mud, over bumpy terrain, and you can do it with one hand due to the front-wheel suspension. This model also provides plenty of room, the bar is adjustable, and there are some other smart features you will learn to love.

Now, let’s take a more detailed look at the features.


  • Weight capacity – 65 lb

  • Stroller weight – 22.4 lb

  • Seat width – 14″

  • Maximum canopy height – 26″

  • Adjustable handlebar height – 30″- 41.5″

  • Wheels – 8.5″

  • Folded Dimensions – 24.5″W x 31.5″L x 10″H


  • Large Canopy

Looking for a large canopy that will protect your baby at all times? Well, the Baby Jogger has a huge cover made of three panels and two peekaboo windows. You won’t have to worry about the sun because the canopy provides 50+ UV protection.

It’s always good to have a large canopy on a stroller as it protects your baby from the elements better. The peekaboo windows are placed on the first and second panels, and it makes it easy for the parent to keep an eye on his baby when the canopy is closed.

  • Adjustable Handlebar

The previous model from Baby Jogger was called City Mini, and many of its users didn’t like the fact that the handlebar wasn’t adjustable. That issue was fixed with this GT model. The handlebar can be adjusted anywhere between 30 and 42 inches from the ground. When set on the highest position, the stroller could tip over, so try hanging your stuff on the frame with stroller hooks. They can hold all your belongings so you won’t have a hard time carrying stuff around.

  • Seat with plenty of room

Many baby strollers have a problem with the seat. When your child grows a bit, the seat becomes too tight and uncomfortable. Well, city mini gt has put an end to that problem with a seat that’s 14” wide and 26” high. That means that you can fit a very large child inside and not worry about the comfort. The depth of the seat is 10 inches, and the leg drop is 11 inches high. It is without a doubt one of the best strollers on the market today.

  • One-hand Recline

Operating the seat of this excellent stroller was never easier. The one-hand recline is managed by a strap system that was cleverly designed to make the process very simple. When you want to recline the seat, all you have to do is pull the clip that’s attached to the strap. The seat will move down and stop when you want it. You will need both hands to get it back up. The lowest position of the seat is nearly flat. The seat is designed mostly for babies over 6 months old. It’s too large for a newborn.

  • Mesh peekaboo window

The peekaboo window is a standard feature for many city and umbrella strollers. There are two of them on the first and second portion of the canopy. The large mesh windows also provide air circulation which helps keep your child nice and cool during those hot summer days. When it gets colder, just close the mesh windows and the heat will stay inside of the canopy.

  • 5-point harness

Keeping your child securely in place is an essential feature of a stroller. The City Mini GT has a 5-point padded adjustable harness that is attached to the back of the seat with a couple of small clips. That means that you can adjust the harness easily as your child grows. The buckler offers even more safety, a baby won’t be able to get out, but a three-year-old child could.

  • Large carrying pocket

The designers of this exceptional stroller have really thought about everything. It’s safe, it offers plenty of room for the child, but it also provides a considerable pocket where you can store all of the necessities you carry with you. The pocket is located on the back of the seat, and it’s ideal for holding the small things like your phone, wallet, shades, and so on.

If you need even more room, you can get one of those stroller organizers that will allow you to carry everything you and your baby could ever need. It’s really spacious.

  • Underseat basket

Well, as far as the basket goes, we have to say that it’s a standard basket. The crossbar is curved, which allows you to access your stuff easily.

  • Parking handbrake

Some models made by this brand have a foot brake, but the GT has a handbrake that’s super easy to operate as it’s conveniently located on the right handle. One quick pull up will lock the wheels in place.

  • Wheels made for any terrain

The size of the wheels are 8.5′‘ and the tires are filled with lightweight foam, making them resistant to punctures. The tires are not designed for jogging, but the good thing is that they can handle different types of terrain including, gravel, mud, and grass. The size of the wheels makes this stroller more compact than most others on the market.

You can remove the back wheels with just a push of a button and that allows you to store the stroller in little room. The front wheel swivel can be locked in place when traversing rough terrain with a small gray button.

  • One-hand Fold

The easy-folding feature is what makes this model one of the best strollers you can get. There is only one step to folding it, and you can do it with one hand in seconds. Pull the strap in the middle of the seat, and the stroller folds up. The automatic lock holds it in place.

What’s wrong with the product?

  • The basket is hard to access

The position of the basket makes it a little hard to get things in and out from the back. It’s more accessible from the sides.

  • Doesn’t come with extra accessories

Features like a cup holder and a bumper bar would make this great stroller perfect.


If you are an active parent and like to take your babies on walks in parks, by rivers, and even on dirt tracks, the Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini GT Single Stroller is an ideal pick. It offers useful features like a large canopy, large resistant foam-filled tires, easy-to-fold mechanism, and a nice appeal overall.

The bottom line is that this stroller is comfortable for you and the baby, it’s easy to operate, and you can even take it offroad!
