Maclaren Techno XT Review

In a nutshell

The Maclaren Techno XT is a high-tech buggy with superior comfort, performance and sporty style. A practical and light weight pushchair that comes with a 4 position recline seat that makes it suitable from birth. The XT has front lockable swivel wheels, large shopping basket and raincover.


  • Folded: length 104cm x width 28cm x height 26cm
  • Weight: 7.7kg
  • Handle height: 105cm


The Maclaren Techno XT pushchair is suitable for use from birth to approximately 15kg. The Techno XT is Maclarens flagship high-tech buggy with superior comfort, performance and sporty style.

Colours Available

The XT is available in a charcoal colour seat unit, on a silver frame, and a black seat unit on a black frame. Both colours look amazingly sporty and sleek.


As with all Maclaren pushchairs, the Techno XT has a high performance aluminium frame, that is extremely strong, yet very light weight. Maclaren are so confident with the quality of their pushchairs, that they offer a Sovereign lifetime warranty on the frame of every pushchair they manufacture (now that’s peace of mind to any parent!). The weight of the XT (without hood, shopping basket or raincover) is 6.8kg or 15lbs.

The XT has a 5 second one hand fold mechanism (very useful when your trying to juggle several things at once!). Also it has a compact umbrella fold, making it easy to store away or for fitting in the boot of your car. A carry strap adds to making the XT really easy to carry and transport.

The Maclaren Techno XT has front and rear wheel suspension for an extra smooth ride for baby, and also easy pushing over different terrains for mum and dad. Height adjustable handles mean parents no longer have to hunch over the pushchair, they make sure they are at a perfect height for them.

Ease of Use

The seat is comfy and cosy with nice cushioning for baby, included with the XT is a head hugger and shoulder pads. The seat is removable and washable (this is a must have with sticky little fingers about!). The seat reclines to four different positions, allowing baby to lay nearly flat when they are sleeping. An extendable and adjustable leg rest allows the XT to grow with your child, always helping to keep them as comfortable as possible. It has a five point safety harness for added security, and a height adjustable shoulder harness for a perfect fit.

The ergonomically optimised, foam insulated handles make for comfortable pushing for mum and dad. The llarge square water resistant hood gives fantastic coverage over your little one. It comes complete with a UV protected viewing window and sun visor. The hood tilts and has an extra panel for added sun protection. Handy storage pockets on the back of the hood are perfect for storing keys, phone, purse etc. (things you may want quick access to). Reflective accents around the hood are there for added safety at night. The Wheel size is 16.5cm, and the hubcaps are also reflective for safety at night.

Lockable front swivel wheels, allow for effortless manoeuvring in town and cities, or equally in the countryside. Switch the wheel to lock mode when going over bumpy terrain for a smoother ride for baby, and for easier pushing for mum and dad.

The Techno XT’s generous mesh shopping basket is great for transporting any daily essentials you may need when out and about. The foot operated linked parking brakes are easy and simple to apply. The XT’s rain cover fits snugly over and keeps your little angel cosy and most importantly dry!

My Bugaboo although great, was too large for my little fiesta so dismantling it to fit into my boot was becoming a chore. After much research I plumped for the Maclaren. It's great so far, wish the wheels were more absorbent of shocks though?

this is the best pushchair ive ever had! and i have 3 kids so have gone through quite a few! its the easiest and lightest to push about and folds so much better than others ive had, didnt even have to take out the cosytoes or small things that are in basket! this pushchair it the one you want if you walk alot with your little ones. it really does make a difference, wish i had bought this earlier!
