Features

The Maclaren Techno XLR has a one-handed release mechanism for its three reclining positions. The footrest fully extends for calf support and tucks away when not in use. The stroller is equipped with a five-point harness, cushioned shoulders and headrest. The adjustable hood canopy can be extended by zipping it open and a sun visor pops out from beneath the hood to provide for maximum protection from the sun. The hood also has a UV protected viewing window. The ergonomic handles can be height-adjusted. The front wheels have a swivel and a lock mode and the brakes are attached to the back wheels. There is a storage basket underneath and two storage compartments located on the back of the child seat. The stroller collapses for storing using the folding mechanism and lock bar. The fabric on the seat is fully removable and machine washable.

Pricing

Maclaren strollers tend to be priced at the higher end of the range for baby gear. To get the best pricing, shop around. Google offers a "Shopping" search option, which allows you to search for the product and sort the results by price. Pricing on the Maclaren Techno XLR varies by store, and in some cases by fabric. Less popular colours are discounted on some websites. Many of the stores also offer coupons that are valid on the Maclaren Techno XLR and can be located by conducting a web search for "coupon at (store name)".

Warranty

All Maclaren strollers are covered under their basic, one year warranty. The basic warranty covers any manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship. To request repair under the basic warranty, you will need to prove that your purchase was made within the past 12 months, so it is recommended that you save your purchase receipt.

All Maclaren strollers purchased after January 1, 2008 are eligible to be covered under the Maclaren Sovereign Lifetime Warranty. You must register your stroller with Maclaren to be eligible for this warranty. Similar to the basic warranty, this will cover any manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship; however, this warranty is valid for the life of the stroller. This warranty is only valid for the original owner.

Neither warranty will cover repairs or replacements due to normal wear and tear.

Accessories

The Maclaren Techno XLR has added accessories that can be purchased separately. "The Boot" is custom designed for the Techno XLR and protects children from the cold by covering them from the waist down. Maclaren also makes a mosquito net, rain cover and parasol for the Techno XLR to protect children from bugs and weather. Another option is the carry bag, which is designed to store or transport Maclaren strollers. You can also purchase the "Comfort Pack," which includes additional shoulder and headrest pads that come in coordinating fabrics.
