'McLaren' is a name synonymous with quality, affordable strollers; and the Techno XLR certainly lives up to that standard. Its design, safety features and value for money, make it the perfect choice.

Design
The Techno XLR reclines fully, meaning it is suitable for newborns who need a comfortable, flat position. A large, padded seat and adjustable footrest makes it suitable for toddlers up to 15kg. The fold-down hood can be unzipped and extended, allowing extra protection from the wind or sun. There is a 'one-hand' folding parasol, which can be operated easily while on the go. All-round suspension, swivelling front wheels and ergonomically shaped handles, makes this stroller extremely comfortable to manoeuvre. A handy and good-sized shopping basket is included, however it is tricky to access this when the seat is fully reclined. On the rear of the stroller is a handy pocket, which is large enough to be really useful for storing bibs, sunglasses, small toys etc. The most fun aspect of the Techno XLR, is that the liner is reversible, so you can change the appearance of the stroller depending on your mood.

Safety Features
A five-point, height adjustable safety harness and chest pads, means baby will be secure and comfortable. A head hugger is also included, so your baby's head will be supported at all times. The frame of the stroller is made from sturdy, aeronautical aluminium (yet is easy to travel with as it only weighs 7.4kg). The Techno XLR comes with a footmuff, raincover and parasol for protection from the elements. Unlike many models, this footmuff is roomy enough to insert an extra blanket if necessary. Built in to the hood, is a viewing window, so baby can always be supervised. Even this window has been designed with safety in mind, and is UV protective.

Value for Money
The Techno XLR can be used from birth through to 15kg, so there is no need to buy an additional stroller when your baby is older. Many other strollers are around the same price, but can only be used from the age of six months. Co-ordinating McLaren attachments are also available for this model, such as a carrycot and car-seat, meaning you could have a complete travel system. Suitable for folding and storing in the car trunk, this light but durable stroller can be used for everything; from quick walks to the shops, to taking away on vacation.
