Techno of many colors
Simplicity is a beautiful thing. After years of offering their flagship Techno stroller in an array of different colors, this year Maclaren got smart. Last year, there were three versions of the Techno: the Classic, the XLR and the XT, and there were so many color combinations, it would make your head spin. Now they’ve cut back substantially. The Classic is discontinued while the XLR comes in just four colors, but the big innovation is with the XT. The 2007 Techno XT comes in just one base color – gray. Then, you choose a separate “Comfort Pack” (included in the price of the stroller) which comes with a cushioned headrest and strap covers in a coordinating color. The choices are Crimson, Black, Pink, Blue and Gray. The Comfort Packs are also available as an add on, so, best of all, parents who are torn between color choices can just get two Comfort Packs.
