2020 Nuna TRIV | Review of the New Nuna Travel Stroller

Nuna Triv Review

Nuna released a travel stroller called the TRIV.  

The biggest question we had when we learned that Nuna was releasing a travel stroller is “Is it going to fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane?”  Read on to find out!

The Nuna TRIV

Nuna announced the release of their travel stroller, the TRIV, on their instagram.

Here’s what Nuna has said so far:  “It’s going to change your world”,  “Whether your days are spent strolling city streets, or in faraway fields, our new fully-featured stroller will make life on-the-go a breeze.”

And our FAVORITE:

“From the plane to train, and everywhere in between, our new stroller is going to change the way you travel your world.”

The question remains if this is going to be a travel stroller that rivals the infamous BabyZen Yoyo+, Bugaboo Ant, and similar, that fit in the overhead compartments of airplanes, or if this is just more of a compact and lightweight stroller.  

Details of the Nuna TRIV

Nuna TRIV Price

The Nuna Triv will retail for $699.95.  

It also includes a rain cover and a car seat adapter.

Nuna TRIV Color Options

 
 

The Nuna Triv currently comes in 2 colors: Caviar (black) and Frost (Gray).

Nuna TRIV Price

The Nuna Triv weighs 19.4 pounds.  However, this is without the insert, belly bar, or canopy.

This is slightly more than the other travel strollers on the market (that fit in the overhead bins of planes).  For reference, the BabyZen Yoyo+ weighs 13.6 pounds while the Bugaboo Ant weighs 15.8 pounds. (For more on the BabyZen Yoyo+ and Bugaboo Ant, check out BabyZen Yoyo+ vs. Bugaboo Ant.)

Nuna TRIV Seat

The seat of the Nuna Triv is reversible.  So your child can either face forward, or towards you. Similar to the Nuna Mixx, the seat of the Triv is “all-season”.  This means that the fabric part of the seat snaps off and reveals a mesh backing.  This allows for better air flow and is great for warm climates.  This also means the seat fabric is machine washable.  The removable fabric is made of merino wool and Tencel lyocell.  According to Tencel, the lyocell fibers are “produced by environmentally responsible processes from the sustainably sourced natural raw material wood”. Here’s the all-season seat from the Nuna Mixx to give you an idea:

Nuna TRIV Harness

The Nuna Triv has a no-rethread five-point harness.  

This means adjusting the height of the harness will be a breeze as your child grows.

Here’s a picture of the seat and harness.

Nuna TRIV Recline

The Nuna Triv has 3 recline positions.  It also has an adjustable foot rest.

Nuna TRIV Sun Shade

The Nuna Triv comes with a UPF 50+ canopy.  The canopy can be un-zipped and expanded.  There is also a flip-out eye shade.

It has mesh panels on the side to allow for better air flow, as well a peek-a-boo window.

Nuna TRIV Wheels

Here’s a close-up of the wheels of the Nuna TRIV:

The wheels of the Nuna TRIV are small and (almost) uniform.  The front wheels are 7″ and the rear wheels are 7.5 “.  These wheels are slightly larger than other travel strollers (like the Bugaboo Ant or BabyZen Yoyo+).

You won’t see suspension by the wheels, as the Nuna Triv has a unique spring suspension that is found directly under the seat.

Car Seat Compatibility

As previously mentioned, the Nuna Triv comes with a ring adapter.  This allows you to pair the stroller with the following car seats:  

Nuna Pipa, Pipa Lite or Pipa Lite XT

Folding the Nuna TRIV

The Nuna Triv can be compactly folded.  It can also stand on its own when folded.

The dimensions of the stroller when folded are 25.3″ L x 21″ W x 15.5″ H.

So now, the answer we’ve all been waiting for:  does the Nuna Triv fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane?  Sadly, the answer is no.  The typical dimensions for a carry-on bag are 22″ L X 14″ W x 9″ H.  The Nuna Triv is far too large to fit in the overhead compartment.

Nuna TRIV Review & Final Thoughts

As a lover of all things Nuna, we were thrilled to learn that Nuna is releasing a travel stroller.  

However, it’s sadly, in our opinion, not an ideal travel stroller.  An ideal travel stroller fits in the overhead compartment of an airplane (or even under the seat!).  The Nuna Triv does not fit this criteria.  

However, don’t count out the new Nuna Triv.  It’s better described as a compact stroller, so if you’re in the market for a compact stroller, the Nuna Triv is a good contender.  It could even be a great everyday stroller if you plan to stay on paved paths.  If you plan on taking walks on rougher terrain, then the Nuna stroller that may be suited is the Nuna Mixx.
