  2. You make it look so easy! I love the gold padding in the Sport, a little pop of bling 🙂

  3. Great review Mike – you highlighted lots of features in detail. Just one clarification on the tire material that you listed as “rubber”; they’re actually made from EVA foam which is the same material used for Crocs footwear. This provides provides good grip & smooth ride but is also lighter than actual rubber tires.

    • Thanks Aaron for your kind words as well as the clarification! It’s sometimes hard to keep track of all the various features and materials. Either way, the wheel materials are fantastic, especially compared to some other ones that might have a much harder material (which I am assuming is some form of plastic!) haha. I’ll try to make an annotation in the video about that because it’s really good information to share. Thanks again!

    • Is this the same kind of tires thats on the Graco modes click connect travel system?
      Those seem to be more like plastic and I don’t like themth.
      Any info would be greatly appreciated

  4. Sorry – the last comment that I posted was with respect to the Graco Modes stroller review. The Modes sport stroller does have rubber tires, whereas the 4-wheel Modes has EVA tires.

  5. Hi Mike!

    Thank you SO MUCH for this comparison review and your previous Modes review! As a soon-to-be dad, I’m at a loss for what the best stroller is for my needs (or even what my actual needs will be in reality)!

    I have a question though, in comparing these two, since they both seem to be similar—what difference does the 3 vs 4 wheel make? I know you mentioned the 3 wheel is more maneuverable, but does it tip easily (like if i hung a diaper bag on the handle bars, or brushed up on it accidentally)??

    Looking forward to your response as Graco already has my check and my next few checks coming their way!!

    • Hi Hasnain!

      Thank you for your kind words! I’m so glad that the video was helpful. After using the 4 wheel modes for almost 1.5years now, I’m still a huge fan of it. I think that any stroller will tip backwards if you put enough weight on the handle, especially when the child gets out and you forget that you hung your bags there! haha Happened to us so many times. But that’s why I like the Modes because the cargo space is big enough that we haven’t been hanging stuff on the handle as much as we have with other strollers that we’ve had.

      In terms of difference, I still prefer the 4 wheel over the 3 wheel version. I do like 3 wheel strollers for the beach, but the ones with the bigger bike wheels that are specifically meant for that type of use – like running or going on trails, etc. So if I had the choice, I would still pick the 4 wheel. Ideally, if you could find a local store that carries both, then you can see what I mean and try them out to see which one is more comfortable for you as well.

      Hope this helps!
