Wheels are Good but..

Glad we swapped to these wheels, but we put them on an older frame and it seems the only things keeping the back wheels on are little pins. these have now fallen out (no issues with previous wheels) and now I need to keep an eye on the wheels to make sure they don't wriggle right off the frame. Not sure what to do about this issue, but will just watch and see for now..
Why didn't I buy these sooner?

I adore my duet, but after yet another puncture I decided to upgrade to these. They seem very expensive for what they are, but with them on the pushchair is still as easy to push, although there is a slight difference in feeling more bumps along the pavement the children haven't complained and no difference to other pushchairs without air tyres. I would suggest these come as standard as the duet seems to be very heavy on the back wheels (already wore through rear air tyres and replaced once) and therefore that seems to be where the punctures always hit. So nice to be able to go out and not panic that I'm going to end up stranded yet again.
They will do

The original tires provide a smooth comfortable ride, but would not hold air. I would pump up then load the stroller and the tires would be flat by the time we got to our destination. Bought these to replace the air filled version. The ride is bumpy and rough. The tires are already pitted and wearing with minimal use. Just relieved to have something on my stroller that won't go flat. I think these tires should just come standard with the stroller because the air filled do not last long at all. My first stroller (a single jogging stroller, different brand) was a lot less expensive and got a lot more use and the air filled tires are still awesome 3 years later. I bought the double stroll stroller from mountain buggy which I love with the exception of the airfield tires (which where not even a year old when they became useless) and not a huge fan of their replacement tires. I only recommend these because you are going to need them!
Easy to fit

I love my mountain buggy duet but the tyres supplied are awful - I was forever getting punctures.
Changed to these tyres and as they are solid no chance of a puncture and the buggy is still able to go on beach, tough terrain ect.
I do think they should come as standard and are expensive given the price of the buggy new!
I bought the air tech tyres and although they are not as 'bouncy' as the air fill I think they are a better option. My air fill tyres broke after only 2 months of light usage.
It would be good to have the option to buy the buggy with an upgrade on tyres as I felt £119 for 4 tyres was very expensive, I would have rather paid a little more for the buggy but had air tech tyres.
Customer service care was exceptional and restored my faith in mountain buggy brand.

Fabulous product! Easy to fit & the buggy is so light to push with them on.
No more pumping up tyres & pushing on a flat, hooray!

Its such a relief, going for a walk and stopping at the shops on the way home, packing things into the pram to get home with tyres that don't need pumping up before it's used again! ! I have a swift and duet and have spent big $ replacing tyres. It's frustrating the aerotechs don't just come with the prams!!!
Should be standard on the buggy

These work perfectly for the Mountain Buggy Duet for our twins.However this is a very expensive way to avoid the flat tyres which come with the buggy. For the price you pay for the duet buggy these wheels should be standard. We eventually bought them because we had so many flat tyres without any visible reason and my wife was getting stranded on walks. The original inflator wheels are not good at all. Whilst these new wheels can't deflate it seems unreasonable that you need to buy them separately at over £100 for a working buggy.
Easy to push!

I was having such a nasty, hard experience with the air tyres so I purchased these and I had no idea how easy it is to push the mountain buggy. It made such a difference and I actually enjoy going out with my kids now!

Stroller pushes great with these wheels and I don't have to worry about my tires popping. The only thing I wasn't happy about is the price

Not great. They wear out quickly and break with normal everyday use ( dropping off a kerb). They feel flimsy and not really fit for the buggy. They are expensive for what you get.
Should have come with the buggy!

These are the wheels the mountain buggy should come with, rather than have to pay extra.
My wife got a puncture on the other tyres and had to push twins home on a flat tyre - not fun and something impossible to fix on the move with two small children on board.

I bought the aerotech wheels a few weeks ago and I am very happy with my purchase! The pram still steers and handles great both in shopping centers and on walking trails and it's awesome knowing I don't have to worry about punctures.
Much better than the original tires

We use our stroller daily for walks and errands. In roughly two years we had about six flats with the original tires (beware most bike shops don't stock this inner tube size as standard so stock up). Finally one wore through entirely. We bought these wheels to replace them - we have four kids three and under and there's no way to take them out alone without a double stroller. We needed something reliable and sturdy. The new tires roll smoothly and are fine on moderately rough ground. Really, they should be the standard wheels for the Mountain Buggy Duet rather than costing $100+ later. Any marginal gain in smoothness with the original air-filled tires on rougher terrain like gravel trails isn't worth constantly finding yourself stranded with an out-of commission stroller, especially if you're a mile or two out on a trail with a heavy dead-weight stroller and multiple small children who can't walk yet.

The wheels are great, similar to other higher end stroller wheels like uppababy, citymini, etc. It would be great to get the option of purchasing either the aerotech tires or the air filled ones when purchasing the stroller instead of having to have both sets.

We've had our Duet for two and and a half years. We've bought new tyres, new inner tubes countless times even though we live in a city centre and it's hardly rough terrain! Really disappointing and it's cost us a fortune. Filling the tyres with slime didnt work either. It's been a real pain during a very stressful time trying to care for young twins.

Bought these tyres as the standard air tyres were terrible at keeping pumped up.
These tyres are great on smooth surfaces but very hard and jerky on others
Worth the money but should come with pram

These tyres have been great in the fact that they don't puncture. Its just a shame that the air filled tyres that come with the pram are so terrible and you have to fork out extra for these ones if you don't want to be forever fixing flat tyres.
Wheels are excellent!

Bought them after a few flats and they are brilliant but should be a no coat option when u buy the pram and not 170 bucks afterwards.

A great improvement on the original wheels though over priced for this product, but found it necessary to buy as the original ones were hopeless with tyre pressure and punctures frequent!!!

I mean, why don't these just come with the stroller? I'll be honest, I didn't even use the inflatable tires; after reading reviews, I immediately bought these. We love them (and being comfortable that they're not going to deflate makes the cost totally worth it.) And the stroller is amazing - so easy to push around, easy to get the kiddos into, narrow enough to get through doors, and the reclining means my tiny twins can ride in it now!

I ordered these a month ago and still waiting for them to arrive but am really really hoping they do the job as the air ones the buggy came with are rubbish. 6 weeks in and we have already had 3 punctures. Nightmare. When I complained I was told the air ones were apparently good for off roading... wouldn't even dream of risking off roading given they can't cope with the pavements of north London. Makes me hate Mountain Buggy a bit that we had to get them and think they should be included instead of air tyres.
Perfect, stress free

No longer worry that we're going to burst a wheel or get a flat when out. These should be standard, & not so expensive.

After constant pumping of tyres and time consuming puncture repairs we finally got these and love them. We've noticed no change in the way the buggy performs in terms of handling/bumpiness but no longer need to worry about getting a flat tyre on a long walk and constantly pumping or repairing tyres! A god send - I just wish we found them earlier!
Love them... But wish they came standard

Love the new tires for our mountain buggy. This is the second mountain buggy stroller we have owned (Terrain with our first, duet when we had our second). We are hard on our strollers and an original rear tire popped during an outing after having the duet stroller for about 8 months. Since we use the stroller so frequently, we needed a replacement and I decided on the aerotech tires. I am very impressed with the durability of the wheels so far, I only wish that you didn't have to put out another $150 to get them.
excellent addition to duet

Had to have new inner tubes after 6 months,another set 5 months later,now after 18 months,new tyres as the originals have shredded.The buggy was not used for the first few months and it isn't used every day now.Considering the purchase price, this problem has been very disappointing.£119 for a new set of wheels and tyres is ridiculous!Obviously a design fault judging by the other comments,they should be a free replacement!

Our kids are in our Duet at least 4 times a day, all year long, so we really put it through it's paces. We have gone through our share of inflatable tires- the last time an inflatable tire went out at a park two miles from our house, we got home and ordered these tires. I think the Duet handles just as well as it ever did, and now we venture into the wild without fear of a flat. Fantastic buy!
Changed my life

I hated having to pump my tyres. Who has the time? These aerotech still offer a smooth ride and I don't feel too compromised. Best investment. :)
