Orbit Baby Double Helix Stroller - Two peas, one pod.
Orbit Baby is rolling out their Double Helix Stroller Frame!
Coming soon to BabyBliss!! With two SmartHub attachments, the Double Helix allows you to stroll with nearly all combinations of Orbit Baby seats (infant car seat, stroller seat, bassinet, and toddler car seat – sold separately). It converts from a double to an uncompromised single with a couple of clicks and 3D folds to fit in even mini car trunks.
Instead of four wheels, the Double Helix has six, with the rear two and front two wheels swiveling, and the middle two wheels acting as a pivot. The super-adjustable telescoping handlebar can be tweaked to find the exact length and angle that works for parents of any height. Instead of the usual Orbit Baby Cargo Pod, the Double Helix features a more traditional, larger basket, but better: you can access the Double Helix stroller’s basket from any angle, with zippers on the side and a convenient front access panel. But that’s not all: there’s also a parent console with two cup holders and a slot for your smartphone. And finally, the ShadePad, which not only blocks the sun for the passenger riding nearest to you, but also holds your iPad or other tablet computer!
Already have an Orbit Baby G2 Stroller? The Helix Plus Double Stroller Upgrade Kit adds a second SmartHub ring attachment, a spacious Double Helix stroller basket, a ShadePad tablet pocket, and an extendable, telescoping handlebar.
