– the complete GB Qbit stroller review!
YSG Rating: (4.3 / 5)
Weight: 14 lbs
The GB Qbit is a simple, lightweight and super affordable stroller for travel and everyday use! The Qbit is highly advertised as a travel stroller because of its light weight and super compact fold. This makes it very easy to travel with and once folded, you can carry it as a small luggage to take on planes, trains, or small cars. It includes a small transport bag that lets you carry the stroller by the strap like a travel bag.
Apart from being great for travel, the GB Qbit is also nice for every day use. Although I would not recommend it for taking to the beach, it is good for trips to the mall, and walking on smooth terrains like sidewalks. If you don’t mind having very few features for your everyday stroller, then in that sense, the Qbit is quite nice and affordable. It includes just a few features like a small stroller basket, multi-position recline, and a 5-point harness for a safe and nice ride around.
The GB Qbit is also car seat compatible, making it great for newborns. You can carry your newborn aboard the stroller and once your baby is older, you can switch to the stroller seat.

GB Qbit LTE Stroller Features
Car Seat Compatible: This stroller is car seat compatible and accepts infant car seats from – Maxi-Cosi, Cybex, and the GB Asana car seat. Note: the car seat adapters are included, the car seat needs to be purchased separately.
Newborn Stroller: As mentioned, the Qbit LTE can be used for your newborn. This can be done by replacing the stroller seat with any of the above infant car seats, then you can safely travel with your newborn aboard the stroller. Once your baby is older, you can switch to the stroller seat which your baby can use till they outgrow the stroller!
Multi-Position Recline: The stroller seat is able to recline into multiple positions – either upright or in a flat position. This provides more comfortable sitting options for your kid as they can either sit up straight, lay flat for a nap.
5-Point Harness: The stroller seat has a 5-point harness system that keeps your baby safely strapped to the stroller seat.
Super Compact Fold: the stroller fold is really compact at 21”H and 13”W. This allows you to easily fit it in small spaces and also in the small transport bag included with the stroller.
Storage Basket: This stroller also includes a decent-sized storage basket to carry your on-the-go items. It is not large enough to hold a lot of stuff at once, but you can carry smaller items like small toys, bottles, or snacks.
Extendable Stroller Canopy: For a lightweight stroller, the Qbit has a fairly large canopy. This is great as it provides your kid with more cover.
Child’s Weight: The stroller weighs 14 lbs and is able to carry up to 50 of child weight. This makes it suitable for big toddlers as well.

Conclusion – GB Qbit Stroller Review
If you’re looking to buy a really affordable stroller to take on your next trip to Europe or to Disneyland, the GB Qbit would be a top recommendation. It is great as a travel stroller as it is so easy to transport and carry with you along. And it is also quite affordable if you’re thinking of buying it only for traveling.
On the other hand, unless you don’t have enough money to spare, I won’t recommend the GB Qbit as an everyday stroller. This is because it doesn’t include so many features and is not so sturdy for everyday use. The basket is quite small, so you can only carry a few items each time, and probably still need an extra bag to take with you. Also, the wheels work fine but they are not great for rough terrain or trips to the beach. All these are not ideal for a stroller you need for everyday use. So I’d mostly recommend the GB Qbit as a travel stroller or for quick trips.
Note: You can also check out the GB Qbit Plus stroller. It is an upgraded version of the Qbit LTE but still very much similar. It includes features like a one-hand fold, one-hand power steering, and an adjustable leg rest.
And that’s it for a full GB Qbit stroller review! I hope it has provided you with enough information to help you make your purchase decision.
