Frame & Tires
A robust steel frame that not only is built to handle heavy use but also incorporates low level reflectors for strolls at dusk and beyond. You’ll want seconds after you and your baby experience the filling effect this frame design will give.
The wheels and tires on the Baby Trend Expedition will have you devouring all the road may throw at you and your baby while strolling together. The bigger the wheel the easier it is to make a meal of that one step or that sudden drop off in the sidewalk. However, Baby Trend advises to not use this stroller on full staircases. You and your little one won’t be worrying about that broken sidewalk from a tree root you both will be busy having fun eating up all that terrain! The tires come uninflated and Baby Trend recommends a tire pressure of 20 – 25psig. Use only a manual bicycle tire pump and never use shop air or compressed air of any kind to inflate the tires.
Safety and Design
Setting the brakes on this stroller is a simple one foot action done at the inside rear wheel hub. And the front wheel can be locked into position by actuating it under the right side of the handle. And while you’re jogging there’s a safety strap to keep the stroller from running away on you. There are two styles of five-point harnesses available for this stroller. One uses a push button style and the other is a clip style. Both options are adjustable and the straps should be adjusted to a snug fit for your child’s safety.
Baby Comfort and Fun!
The seat back can be reclined to multiple positions. Simply adjust the strap and buckle assembly behind the seat. The full upright position is recommend for children at least 6 months old. Included with the stroller is a great parent tray that can accommodate up to 3 pounds. Now you can take up to two water bottles and have room to store those keys. The under storage basket is great for those extras you may acquire or decide to take with you. The Expedition has a wonderful ergonomically shaped foam handle with plenty of width for a firm grip. Folding the Expedition is a simple process too. Pull the triggers and as it is descending to the ground push until the stroller is secure. To unfold simply put the stroller wheels on the ground and release the folding latch on the right side. Then lift until the stroller is in the locked position. You’ll love the canopy on the Expedition too. It folds out to protect your baby from the sun and wind but also has a peel back flap so you can keep a watchful eye on your little traveler. You have a great tray and so does your baby. The Baby tray will give your little rider a place to put those snacks and drinks while they sit back and enjoy the ride.
Care and Maintenance
Putting together the Expedition is as easy as microwaving popcorn. All you need is regular sized crescent wrench to attach the wheels and a screw driver for the front fender. Periodically check the screws, warn parts, torn material or loose stitching. If anything that is replaceable is damage simply contact Baby Trend for availability. And if you feel something needs to be greased food grade CRC can be used. Cleaning the fabric is as just as easy as assembly. Simply hand wash with a mild baby safe detergent and let air dry. If the front wheel ever causes the stroller to pull to one side there is a simple procedure for adjusting the front wheel. The only tool you’ll need is the crescent wrench.
EZ Flex-Loc Infant Car Seat & Base
The Baby Trend EZ Flex-Loc infant car seat and base is your great addition to the stroller. This car seat is recommended for babies 5 to 30 pounds and no bigger than 30 inches. A few safety features included are the adjustable five point harness and the carry handle can be set at four different positions.
