Released April, 2008
The Pros:Lightweight design is conducive to urban families that frequently use public transportation. Padded seat-liner is removable - leaves a thin mesh support for hot weather applications. Pivoting sun hood provides numerous placement options - not available on competitor MacLaren models.
The Cons:May be difficult to steer for inexperienced stroller owners. Brakes may be accidentally triggered due to awkward placement - can be very dangerous at brisk speeds.
The UPPAbaby G-Lite model is a mid-grade stroller designed to provide increased durability without the expense of a lightweight frame. A special small size fold-up function makes the G-Lite an ideal solution for parents constantly traveling and on-the-go.

UPPAbaby even claims the G-Lite stroller will fit in any normal sized luggage trunk or airplane overhead storage compartment for convenience. The frame is designed out of a durable yet portable aluminum material; and the entire stroller weighs a mere 8.3 pounds. For under storage the G-Lite stroller includes an easy access basket. The stroller also includes overhead protection for the child with an easy open and fully removable canopy.
The UPPAbaby G-Lite also includes additional features such as hand-level opening triggers, a 4 wheel shock absorbing suspension, a fully removable and washable seat pad, open/breathable mesh seat, and wide "high performance" tires. The UPPAbaby website advertises this particular model as being successfully "mom-tested" by Parenting Magazine. A majority of online reviews praise the G-Lite stroller for its sturdiness and durability, but mention that the stroller takes a little more work to fold up and close than UPPAbaby would admit. Problems also seem to relate to the velcro canopy but these are only minor problems as most reviews adversely state they are more than happy with the G-Lite stroller as a whole.
