With noticeable differences like the sleek black frame, one-piece and one-handed push handlebar, the Double Helix gives parents the option to stroll with twins, a baby and a toddler, two toddlers and the addition of up to two older children -- with the optional Sidekick stroller boards. For parents who already own the Orbit Baby G2 stroller, the extra seat (which includes a replacement handlebar) can be purchased to make your G2 into a double stroller.
