The Major Differences

Recline

  • TRIV features a 3 position recline 
  • MIXX has 5 recline positions 

Bassinet

  • TRIV does not accept a bassinet
  • MIXX has the option to purchase a bassinet – sold separately – or snap into “bassinet mode” with the footrest folded up

Rain Cover

  • TRIV includes a rain cover
  • MIXX requires this be purchased separately

The Wheels

  • TRIV has 7” front wheels and 7.5” rear wheels, 
  • MIXX has 7.5” front wheels and 10” rear wheels

The Frame

  • TRIV folds with one-hand and self stands when folded, MIXX requires 2 hands to fold and cannot self-stand [but it does offer a unique trolley function to pull behind you when folded]
  • TRIV has added spring suspension under the seat to aid in absorbing shock when going over rougher terrain [think cobblestone streets], but the larger tires on the MIXX are better suited for grass, dirt, or gravel roads
  • TRIV seat height is slightly taller [2” higher] at 21" than the seat height on the MIXX at 19”, accommodating taller children more comfortably  
  • The insert on the TRIV is made of Merino Wool, the insert is a soft cotton jersey on the MIXX
  • TRIV weighs 7.5 lbs less than the MIXX at 19.4 lbs [this weight is without the seat insert, bumper bar or canopy], the MIXX is 27 lbs [without the seat insert or bumper bar]

In Summary

Overall, the TRIV is best suited for city living, where you’ll be walking on clear sidewalks, through underground systems or taking public transit often. The smaller wheels are not ideal for powering through snow or over bumpy terrain, although the one-handed, self-standing fold and lighter weight are convenience factors that may be worth the trade-off for your family!  

The MIXX can handle a wider array of terrains and has more recline options to suit your child’s preferences AND can be used in “bassinet mode” to create a comforting little nook for your infant. The MIXX is better suited for everyday use if tackling snowy sidewalks or neighbourhood trails.  

Only you can decide which stroller is right for your family and meets your needs. Both strollers are of exceptional quality and offer a smooth ride for baby and a seamless push for the captain! You'll be happy whichever Nuna stroller you choose!
