The Britax B-Dual is a brilliantly designed inline tandem pushchair with numerous options offering flexibility to a growing family or to newborn twins. A great modular travel system with carrycot, soft cots, car seat fixing points and comfortable seats suitable from birth. Probably the best all round tandem on the market for pushability combined with storage space and good space / seating for the children, both in toddler and in newborn / travel system mode.
A travel system that works well for twins from birth or for a toddler and new baby. Many configurations including two car seats, two carry / soft cots and two seats and combinations of these. Good basket with side accessibility. A neat package with good handling. Large extendable hoods offering good sun protection. Easy to use as a single as well as a tandem. Integrated adaptors for upper car seat and carrycot. A very good option for twins.
Soft carrycot is tricky to get in and out of the bottom seat. Basket openings aren't large enough to get a large changing bag through and storage space is restricted with the soft cot and second seat. No foot rests for either child. Seats seem a little shallow for older children who struggle to sit up straight.

A Maxi-Cosi Pebble or Cabriofix car seat can apparently be fitted with the use of Oyster adaptors. This is however not safety tested and we do not recommend it.

Britax Safe-Sleeper may be a good alternative to a carrycot or car seat for those early months.
The 2011 version has adaptors which push the seats further apart and makes the front seat higher. However the 2012 hood height was reduced from the previous model, but included in the box are two adaptors to extend the hood height by several more inches should you wish to.
£449.99 Chassis and one seat; £99.99 Second Seat; £79.99 Soft Cot; £120 Hard Carrycot; £49.99 for car seat adaptors to attach a second car seat (the first one clips onto the frame), Cosy Toes £44.95
Folded measurements are with the seat units on. Folded chassis only is: L 84cms x W 69cms x H 30cms.
We recommend that the best option for a baby and toddler is the baby in a soft cot in the lower seat, with the toddler in the upper seat.
If the fabric is similar to the chili pepper fabric of the B-Agile, then it could get dirty and dusty very easily.
