Questions & Answers for Contours Optima Tandem Stroller

Question

Seat sizeOptions LT vs. Optima?

I'm debating between the options and the optima strollers and was wondering if the seat sizes are different?

Also do the canopies adjust to height on the Options LT?

Thank you for your question. The Contours Options LT and the Contours Optima tandem strollers both have the following seat dimensions:
Seat back: 16”
Seat width: 13”
Seat to Knee: 9.5”
End of Seat to footrest: 8”
Shoulder Width: 14”

The Options LT does not have height adjustable canopies. Only the canopies on the Optima can be adjusted from 23” to 27” to accommodate a growing baby. If you are interested in trying out the Options LT first hand, it is available at buybuy BABY and Baby Depot! We hope this information helps!

Congratulations on your new addition! Yes, the Contours Optima Tandem stroller can accommodate both a newborn and a toddler. This stroller features a removable infant neck roll for added protection for your little one's head and can accommodate a number of popular infant car seats on the market. The reversible seats allow your little ones to face each other for a private giggle session, can both face forward while they explore the world, and more! The multi-position reclining seats and height-adjustable canopies will keep your growing toddler comfortable. Thank you for your question!

Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima Tandem. When using this stroller with an infant car seat in the rear position, you will not be able to fully recline the front seat if it is facing forward. The stroller seats of the Optima can accommodate a newborn if used in the fully reclined position and with the infant head rest. To fully recline both seats at the same time, it is best to have both seats facing the parent handle or both seats facing forward. We hope this information helps!

Question

Stroller wobbly; out of warranty

I bought the Optima from another mom, it is 3 years old and I understand it is out of warranty. Some joints feel a little loose/wobbly. What can I do to tighten them? Or did I shoot myself in the foot by trying to save some money?

Thank you for your interest in our Contours Optima Tandem Stroller. To properly fold this stroller you will need to remove the rear seat and make sure the front seat is facing the handle or remove the front seat and make sure the rear seat is facing forward. For more information on how to fold this stroller is located on page 25 of the instruction manual, posted below. We hope this information helps.

Hi Ritu,
Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima Tandem. At this time, we do not sell directly to consumers. This stroller is available in the United States only, though it is possible that one of our online retailers will ship the tandem to New Zealand. We would recommend contacting the retailer directly for more information on their international shipping policies. Thank you for your question!

Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima Tandem. Unfortunately, we do not manufacture stroller boards nor have we tested this stroller with any stroller boards to determine if any are compatible. Thank you for your question.

Question

new colors?

My husband and I really like this stroller, however we're not huge fans of the color. I've contacted the buy buy baby store and they have discontinued the Hudson color. Will you guys be manufacturing the same stroller in new colors or will the Hudson be coming back anytime soon?!?

Thank you for your interest in our Contours Tandems! The Optima is currently only available in the black, white and red Berkeley fashion. The Contours Options LT is available in a Crimson Red and our new Valencia Gold fashion. We have discontinued the Optima in the gray and green Hudson pattern, however, the Options LT Tandem will be available in the Hudson exclusively at buybuy BABY stores. We have already shipped the Options LT in the Hudson to buybuy BABY, so you should hopefully see it in stores and online soon! We hope this helps. Thank you for your question.

Question

Missing cup holder

I am thinking of buying this stroller used from a resale shop, but it is missing the adult cup holder... is this something you sell separately as replacements, or do you know if my removeable BOB cup holder would fit? Or, what is the length from one handle bar to the other? Thank you!!

Thank you for your interest in the Contours Optima Tandem. The handle bar is approximately 19” across. We have not tested the BOB removable parent tray to determine if this is compatible with our tandem. We do sell replacement parent trays through our customer service department. You can reach our customer service team at 800.453.7673 or customerservice@kolcraft.com and they will be happy to assist you! Thank you for your question!
