You might choose the GB Qbit Plus over the Pockit Plus if you wanted a slightly sturdier travel stroller with a deeper seat. Other than that, we'd choose the GB Pockit Plus (or Babyzen YOYO+ if it's in your price range) instead, since the Pockit Plus is similar in most ways, but has a more compact fold.
Things We Love
- Looks Fantastic: The GB Qbit Plus comes in Laguna Blue (green), Sapphire Blue, Silver Fox Grey, Cherry Red, and Satin Black. It looks great in every single one of these colors, though we prefer the more subdued ones.
- Lightweight and Portable: The Qbit is significantly lighter than full-sized and standard strollers, but is 3-5 pounds heavier than other compact strollers, like the Babyzen YOYO.
- Ridiculously Easy, Compact Fold: The Qbit Plus folds and unfolds with one hand in one step. Incredible. The fold is not quite as compact as competitor strollers like the Babyzen YOYO or GB Pockit Plus.
- Deep Recline; Adjustable Footrest: The Qbit Plus reclines for comfortable napping position and has an adjustable (albeit small) footrest.
- Decent Storage Space: For such a compact stroller, the Qbit Plus has a decent amount of under-stroller storage, accessible from both the front and the back.
- Small Wheels; Rear Wheel Suspension: Although the Qbit Plus’s wheels are small, they are equipped with suspension to make bumpy rides smoother. This is not a great stroller for terrain rougher than a poorly paved path (it fares pretty well on cobblestones), but compared to other compact strollers, the Qbit plus has a remarkably smooth ride.
- Compatible with the Best Car Seats: The Qbit Plus is compatible with all GB car seats, as well as our favorites– Maxi Cosi, Nuna, and Cybex with adapters sold separately.
Things We Don't Love As Much
- Not Modular: The Qbit Plus is forward-facing only and does not have a parent-facing option. This is standard for compact strollers.
- Not Convertible to a Double Stroller; No Board for Older Children: The Qbit Plus does not convert to a double stroller and does not have a ride along board for older children.
- No Bassinet Option: Currently there is no bassinet option for this stroller. (GB is creating one for the European market… we wish we had one too!) Since it is car seat compatible, the Pockit Plus can technically be used for infants, but we always prefer a bassinet to a car seat for infant strolls.
- No Accessories Included: The Qbit Plus does not come with accessories. Rain covers, car seat adapters, footmuffs, umbrellas, etc. are all sold separately.
GB QBit Plus Alternatives
- If you want a travel stroller with a bassinet… Babyzen YOYO+ is a pricy but amazing option for those who can afford it, or you can get the Mountain Buggy Nano if the design flaws don't bother you.
- If you want a travel stroller with a more compact fold… the GB Pockit Plus and the Babyzen YOYO+ both have a more compact fold than the QBit Plus.
