Delta has been in the stroller business for a long time, and have thus garnered a strong reputation for quality, efficiency, and functionality. Naturally, I was intrigued, when I heard that the LX Double Stroller was set to hit the marketplace, and wanted to see for myself, whether it was an improvement on earlier models.
Delta had, in the months leading up to release, boasted of some excellent features, which is usually a good sign. The aim of this Delta Children LX side by side Tandem Umbrella Stroller Review is to inform buyers, about the pros and cons of owning a stroller like this. Is it worth the money? What are the features? Is it Practical? All will be answered here.
Features of the Delta Children LX Side by Side Tandem Umbrella Stroller
Delta Children LX Side by Side Tandem Umbrella Stroller is designed to meet the needs of the consumers. After hours of research, testing, and analyzing the features, we put Tandem Umbrella Stroller as one of the best in our double stroller List.
Functionality vs Practicality
The first feature I want to talk about is the size, and the trade-off in double stroller manufacturing is functionality vs Practicality. What I mean by this, is double strollers have to be large enough to fit two babies in comfortably, but light enough, and compact enough, to avoid making strolling an arduous task.
Delta Tandem Umbrella Stroller got the balance exactly right here, with the LX weighing only 21 pounds and measuring 31 inches in length, by 33 inches of width, standing at a height of 39.5 inches. At these measurements, the LX is just small enough to go through doorways, while still providing the safe, snug environment babies need.
Added to this are the reclining seats, which are something many strollers don’t have. This Double Stroller really makes a difference, and it’s also very easy for parents to operate, with the reclining feature accessible by a strap on the back of the seat. Parents simply, loosen or tighten the strap, and the seat with recline, backward or forward, depending on how they want it.
Harnesses are all-important on Strollers because parents like to know their children are completely safe at all times from slipping out of the seat. Included with the Delta LX Side by Side Stroller, is a strong 5 point harness, which can be adjusted easily.
Parents will be interested to know that 5 point harnesses like the one on the LX, where originally developed to make automobile travel safe, and have now become the standard in Motorsports.
They consist of 2 straps around the waist, an additional 2 straps around the shoulders, with the 5th strap located at the crotch. A buckle mechanism holds these together and parents have the option to use none, two, or all five of these straps at once.
Safety is increased with the inclusion of shoulder pads, and these are incredibly soft, enabling babies to sleep more easily. They can also be removed easily, on days when they aren’t needed.
The best thing about the LX, and about umbrella strollers in general, is how they fold. The LX Tandem Umbrella Stroller can be folded in one quick action into an umbrella shape, and then stored in the car, or in a cupboard at home.
Another excellent inclusion in the two storage bags on either side of the LX. Most double strollers have one large storage compartment, and parents will know from experience, the benefits of two separated bags. Children’s toys constantly get mixed up, are often time-consuming to find, but with the two storage bags, each child’s toys can be separated.
It’s nice that Delta thought about this, and these bags are capable of storing all of the necessities parents need. Also handy for parents are the ample-sized pockets, located at the back of each seat, and some large cup holders.
Delta has chosen to fit the LX Side by Side Tandem Umbrella Stroller, with a European style canopy. This was a good decision because the European canopies protect efficiently against insect bites, sun rays, and all types of weather.
The downside is that they cannot be fully adjusted, or removed from the stroller. In their constant strive for safety and comfort, Delta has also attached 360-degree shock absorbents on the wheels, for added protection.
There are very few faults in the design of this best tandem double stroller. Delta has paid careful attention to safety, while providing parents with a double stroller that is small and lightweight enough to be practical, but just large enough, to fit its function.
The huge storage capacity will be a welcome inclusion, and parents will very much enjoy how much easier the LX is to fold than other doubles. Although the canopy cannot be fully adjusted or removed, it does shield against all things harmful to children. The Verdict: Definitely worth a purchase.
