  • Conclusion: A sleek, stylish buggy that makes transporting two children simple, whatever their age or stage. With some outstanding features and the ability to fold compactly, even with the second seat attached, the Verve Inline Double is a well-designed buggy. But despite the urban tag line it isn’t the easiest inline to use around town.
  • Pros: Stylish chassis design, lasts from birth to 6 years, stable, second seat reclines, folds with second seat attached, can use a car seat and doubles kit at the same time, converts to single buggy, The brushed aluminium, curved chassis of the Verve propels it onto the catwalk reserved for very good-looking buggies. As a single buggy, I felt that the Verve was a little lost – it’s long and wide for a single buggy with an ‘urban’ tag line. But as a double, it really starts...
  • Cons: Feels wide when in shops, expensive when accessories added, noisy to push compared to other Phil and Teds Inlines, buggy seats are forward facing only, The Verve is wide (66cm) and with the handle extended fully it’s also long (around 140cm). This means that whilst it’s nimble and corners well, it isn’t necessarily the best buggy for around town. The back wheels really do stick out from the chassis and in some small shops I have difficultly getting around the aisles w...

  • Conclusion: The Verve is a stylish, travel-system-compatible convertible buggy. It folds compactly and handles well on and off road, with the four wheels giving it a steady feel. With a long list of well-designed features, this buggy is a great investment if you intend to have more than one baby, but it doesn’t suit small spaces and is guaranteed to make a dent in your budget.
  • Pros: Handles well, stylish chassis design, lasts from birth to 6 years, stable, travel system compatible, can become a double buggy, As the owner of a Phil and Teds Explorer (which I most often use as an inline double for my two daughters ), I was intrigued to see how this urban ATP compared. I can’t do without it but long-term use has exposed some frustrating niggles. I’m glad the multi-position recline mechanism has been modified for the Verve - the strap adjustment is n...
  • Cons: Wider than other Phil and Teds models, parent facing only unless optional car seat or peanut bassinet added, expensive, noisy to push compared to ATPs with all air-filled tyres, As a single buggy the Verve is big and it looks lost without the second seat (the doubles kit) attached. And whilst it has been branded the ‘uptown inline’, at 66cm wide and around 140cm long with the handle fully extended, the moniker doesn’t quite fit. The back wheels really seem to stick ou...

2011 Phil and Teds Verve

29 August 2013
  • Summary: Had the Verve been available 2 years ago when my youngest was about to be born it would have been my double of choice. The manoeuvrability, the one-piece fold, and the reclining toddler seat make it a fantastic option. The blending of comfort for both children, no matter which mode you are using it in, and ease of use for parents is a winning combination.
  • Pros: Reclining toddler seat, Folds in one piece, Excellent manoeuvrability, Can use travel system and double kit simultaneously, Easily adjustable harness, Large comfortable seating, Hand brake
  • Cons: Double kit hood must be removed before folding, Front wheels are not quick release, Basket space becomes limited in double mode, An older double kit rider is able to press on the front wheels through the under seat basket.
