If you’re looking for a high-quality, lightweight option, you may be wondering if the Uppababy Cruz V2 or Joolz Hub+ is the right choice for you. Keep reading to find out how these two strollers compare in terms of features, price, and more.
And though there are important differences in particular, with regards to which lifestyle factors you should consider when choosing between them both are constructed in a very robust manner. And for this reason, I won’t be going into chassis structure and longevity today, they’re both simply built to last.
And if you’d like to know about these aspects, you should check out our standalone reviews for each model.
So let’s get started then with the Joolz Hub+ where I’d first, like to point out that despite using some footage of the nearly identical original hub in this video, all of the information relates to the current Joolz Hub+ model the Joolz Hub+ clocks in at 11 kilos and falls down to 31 by 53, by 63 centimeters with the seat attached, which is sufficiently compact.
The result of the seat’s ability to fold as well to be carried by the model shoulder strap when needed though, it is still a bit too heavy to do this for long distances. As far as child comfort is concerned, the Joolz Hub+ is, has a nearly full life flat position and is newborn compatible by using either a bass or a padded cocoon, but is, unfortunately, a bit on the small side.
And as such will really only be ideal for use for children younger than two and a half or three when it comes to real-world use and which lifestyles the Joolz Hub+ will be best suited for. The model is primarily for urban conditions where its smaller size excels at navigating crowded spaces and taking up less storage room while still providing the full-size comforts of a reversible seat.
And the sturdiness and terrain capability needed to hold up to regular all-day use while tackling occasional gravel, broken sidewalks and city parks, the model, large rear wheels, and decent suspension help a lot here while it’s front wheels.
At 6.3 inches will be the chief limiting factor determining where you can drive. And while the Joolz Hub+ is perfectly capable of handling the conditions I described, it will still struggle to deal with nature trails or really rough cobblestones storage-wise.
The Joolz Hub+ is shopping basket is pretty limited capable of fitting a bit of necessary baby gear, but not designed to a full picnic load or a ton of shopping a situation that should not be hacked by hanging heavy bags from the handle.
Lastly, while the Joolz Hub+ can work as a keep in the trunk model, in my experience for most heavily car-based lifestyles, such as in suburban America, you can usually get away with something a bit lighter and smaller and where this model fits perfectly instead, where you’ll most out of its capabilities is in big cities with a lot of stairs and public transport.
And the like in particular, in colder parts of the world where you’ll need to deal with a bit of snow. Moving on the Uppababy Cruz V2 weighs in at 11.5 kilos and folds down to 42 by 58, by 84 centimeters with the seat attached, which is only a tad heavier than the Joolz Hub+, but larger being more of a midsize model in this respect and which is a fine size for fitting in the trunk, but not for carrying around when it comes to child comfort.
The Uppababy Cruz V2 has a bucket seat with an adjustable leg rest that is larger than the seat on the Joolz Hub+ extending ideal use by up to a year or so as a bucket seat, the cruise V two doesn’t offer a full life flat position, but like the Joolz Hub+ the model is also parable with an infant insert or a bassinet for use with newborns when it comes to parent comfort and ideal lifestyle.
The Uppababy Cruz V2 inch from wheels and incredible suspension struts, one of the best suspension setups on the market, definitely give it an edge over the hub. Plus for terrain capability though, will still be best to think of the model as meant mainly for around-town driving. And if you’re headed off road, it should be to relatively well-maintained trails and dirt roads.
The Uppababy Cruz V2 also has significantly more storage capacity than the hub. Plus in fact, it has a bigger basket than the majority of mid-size models out there and combined with its increased seat size and terrain capability.
The Uppababy Cruz V2 is simply a much better all-round model than the Joolz Hub+ ideal for people who will need their stroller for more than just short trips while still not being so large or heavy as to be difficult to fit in the trunk or carry up the stairs wind needed.
And if you’re trying to decide between these two models, then I would say that the Uppababy Cruz V2 is the more versatile choice.
And the one I would recommend for most people unless you have special need of a small folding model, such as you drive a very small car or have severely limited storage space, you know, that you need a stroller that is easier to carry on a regular basis while moving through the world, or you have special reasons for needing the Joolz Hub+ es, more adjustable seat recline.
