Exclusive First Look: Orbit Baby's Just-Announced Double Helix Stroller
Get in line! Double strollers are where it's at these days, and Orbit Baby is entering the fold with an update to the traditional tandem double stroller. The Double Helix won't be released until Spring 2012, but the company is giving us a sneak peek at it here!
Following a barrage of side-by-side options (think the Bugaboo Donkey and the Mountain Buggy Duet) and those with rumble seats, the new Orbit Baby Double Helix (the price is still being determined) combines the tandem stroller with the rumble seat to provide seating options for two kids, without one actually sitting on top of the other. Available as both a double stroller (the Double Helix) or an add-on for current Orbit owners (the Helix Plus), the frame takes advantage of Orbit's innovative 360° rotating seats, so tots can face any direction (even each other) at any time. The pushchair's six wheels (two more than most) will ensure silky smooth rides, regardless of which seat lil one's choose. Like the Bugaboo Donkey, the Double Helix also gives families the flexibility to use it as a single stroller or a double (with infant car seats, toddler car seats, or regular seats) by simply flicking a few latches.
