I’m familiar with the GB brand (we have their wonderful, lightweight Zuzu stroller) so I know they have trustworthy and quality products backed by 25+ years of design and development experience. If you’re looking for a great stroller to last through multiple children, there are many reasons the GB Evoq travel system is wonderful. We were sent one to review.
First, it comes with everything you need to get started: the Asana 35 infant car seat, the car seat base, the Evoq stroller that allows the car seat to snap right in (no attachments necessary), varying positions of the Evoq stroller seat for growing babies, and (my favorite!!!) a standing board on the back for your toddler!
The GB Evoq travel system isn’t just for one child infant to toddler aged… it goes beyond that for families with additional children.
My 3-year-old daughter is pictured above, showing off the standing board. Typically, I’d have her riding in the GB Evoq stroller seat though and my 5-year-old son riding on back. The board fits great right behind the basket and we had no issues with it getting in the way.
The basket has plenty of space, there’s a lock on the rear wheels, the front wheels lock in place if wanted, height adjustable and padded handles, a parent cup holder, and an easy fold.

The stroller seat is in a middle position here and Rebecca is leaning forward—she prefers it at its most upright position, unless she’s tired! Then it reclines—far enough for a baby! It goes pretty flat and you can tell below that Rebecca wasn’t ready for a nap 😉
The stroller seat can also be turned around to face the parent, so when you do have your little baby in there they can still see you for their comfort (and yours!). When they’re ready to see the world, you just lift the seat and snap it back in facing outward.
The canopy is large and adjustable. You can leave it solid or open up a zippered mesh section for some airflow and sunshine. I also love this so I can peek in and see my kids!
The Asana 35 car seat has a unique and innovative “FirmFit System” to make it one of the safest car seats available. You can see the easy 1-2-3 system in the bottom right photo. Squeeze to lift the FirmFit arm, place the car seat belt and secure the arm back in place. This helps you get a tighter and safer fit, making sure your car seat is secure every time!
There’s also a FirmFit Load Leg (common in Europe and new to the US, thanks to GB!) and an easily adjustable FirmFit Harness for added protection and safety.
This harness is AMAZING. I really don’t like the process of rethreading harness straps and with this car seat, you don’t have to! Just pull the front strap when tightening the harness to your baby and the entire headrest moves, too, for the perfect fit every time you use it.
I received product to facilitate this review. Any opinions are my own.
