Questions & Answers for Contours Contours® Optima™ Tandem

Question

Distance between seats?

When the seats are facing each other on the Optima, the foot rests touch and do not allow much space for each rider's feet. Do the Options or Options II offer more space between the seats?

Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima Tandem. When the seats are facing each other, and the footrests are not extended, there is approximately 7.5" of space between each foot rest for the Optima and Options tandems. Thank you for your question!

Question

defect help

I just received the hudson color stroller as a gift from my inlaws that was ordered from bed bath and beyond online (only place we could find it in that color), and while opening it up and putting it together, we noticed there is tear/rip on the foam push handle bar underneath on the left - you'd only know it when you put your hand to push it (its about 2 inches or so big). How can we remedy this with out having to take the whole thing apart and ship it back? I am due any day now and we'd rather just get what needs to be replaced, how do we go about doing that in the most convenient way possible?

One of the Chicco Key Fit styles has almost exactly the same pattern as the Hudson! (not sure what the pattern name is of the Key Fit, but we got ours at Babies R Us).

We have a Graco Snugride that is red and black and looks like it will coordinate with the Berkeley pattern. Try the Surin colorway. I haven't gotten our stroller yet though so I can't say for certain.

The child napper bar is removable on the Contours Options, Options II and Optima Tandems. To remove, press the colored trigger buttons underneath the bar. More information on how to remove the napper bar can be found on page 12 of the instruction manual.

The hold-on handles are only available on the Contours Options and Options II Tandems. Because the hold-on handles are riveted directly on the stroller frame, they are not available for purchase or use with the Optima. Thank you for your question!

Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima Tandem. Unfortunately, this stroller does not come with jogging or air-filled tires. The front tires are 8" swiveling wheels and the rear tires are 10" never-flat wheels. The lighter weight and front wheel suspension will help to provide a smoother ride. If you are interested in testing out the Optima in person, this stroller is available at buybuy Baby stores. We appreciate your feedback and will certainly considering creating a tandem stroller with air-filled or off-road tires in the future. Thank you for your question!

We have not yet tested the Aton car seat since it is so new to the US market. We are constantly updating our list of compatible infant car seats that can be used with our Contours Optima double stroller, and keep the most current list of acceptable infant car seats available on our website.

Question

Do the bars move?

The bars in front of the baby when she is seated in her seat in the stroller..Do they swing out? Move? or are they stationary? I have 13 month old twins and need a new double stroller. I wish you would have given the Optima a snack tray, and Handles for the baby to walk, than this would have been a no brainer!!..I wouldn't mind paying so much for a stroller that had it all, but you want us to pay for a prettier pattern. I think the beige/tangerine is very nice. also, why is the Ruby and Tangerine Discontinued?..because of the New Optima??

Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima tandem stroller, and congratulations on your 13 month old twins! Both of the child napper bars on the Optima can be easily removed, and swing out of the way for easy access. While the seats do not come with a snack tray, they each have their own swivel cup holder.

The main differences between our Contours® Options® II Tandem Stroller and the Contours® Optima™ tandem stroller are the following:
- The Contours Optima tandem stroller has a lightweight frame, and weighs under 37 lbs;
- The Contours Options II tandem stroller weighs 46 lbs., has an iPod® Dok, easy step-in areas and Hold-on™ handles for toddlers.
- As you mentioned, the pattern and color choices are also different between the strollers.

Both the Contours Options (in the Ruby pattern) and the Contours Options II (in the Tangerine pattern) are still available. See the Where to Buy section on the product pages for more information.

Thanks for your question!
