It weighs approximately 27 pounds, and it comes with 16 inch rear bicycle style tires and a 12-inch front locking swivel wheel.  It offers a remote release that unlocks and locks the front swivel wheel from the handle bar, which is a super handy feature to have.  It has a parent tray with 2 cup holders and a covered compartment for storage, as well as a child’s tray with two cup holders, a large cargo basket, and an adjustable canopy with a covered sunroof that ratchets to block the sun or wind.

My Overall ReviewBaby Trend Expedition Review

The Baby Trend Expedition LX Jogging Stroller lists for $184.99, which is not a bad price compared to some of the higher end swivel jogging strollers. It does offer the locking front swivel wheel with remote release, which is probably my favorite feature, and it does offer a nice parent tray and child tray, as well as the multiple-position reclining seat. The Baby Trend Expedition LX also offers all the standard safety features. So in other words, it comes with everything you need. So is it the best jogging stroller? Well, after reading all the reviews (not just on Amazon, but all over), I don’t believe that the Baby Trend Expedition LX is the BEST swivel jogging stroller on the market. Having said that though, the BEST jogging stroller will also cost you twice as much. Also, I think one of the reasons why the Baby Trend Expedition is so popular is because it comes as a travel system, with the Baby Trend Infant Car Seat. The Baby Trend Expedition LX Travel System is one of the least expensive travel systems you can buy, but is still quality built.

After shuffling through about 471 reviews on the Baby Trend Expedition, the number one complaint that I have found was regarding the wobbly front wheel. This is not abnormal for a swivel jogging stroller. Occasionally all it takes is a little tightening of a bolt, but in this case some reviewers claimed that the front wheel actually fell off.  Keep in mind that once you purchase the Baby Trend Expedition Stroller, you have to assemble it as well, therefore I feel it’s quite possible that some of the reviewers may have assembled it incorrectly, or tightened the front wheel housing nut too much causing damage to the swivel wheel to begin with. I even studied the Baby Trend Expedition instruction manual, and this is what I found:

“If you experience front wheel wobble that is beyond what is normal for use while walking or jogging you may have to adjust the front wheel housing nut. This nut is located under the footrest located at the front of the jogger. You can use a standard crescent wrench to tighten the nut. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN this can cause damage to the wheel housing.”

All in all, the Baby Trend Expedition LX Jogging Stroller is a well priced swivel jogging stroller. As far as the reviews go, some absolutely loved it, and felt that it did exactly what it was supposed to do. While others were frustrated with the wobbly front wheel. Personally, I feel that if you’re a serious jogger, you should purchase a running stroller with a fixed wheel. They aren’t the best for maneuverability, but they provide the extra durability you need when running.

Baby Trend Expedition – Riviera

Honestly the more I know about swivel jogging strollers now the more I like my Baby Trend Expedition Jogging Stroller. I changed my review from 4 stars to 5 recently because I have just seen what is out there in the world of strollers as we have 2 kids now and needed a double jogger. Honestly for this price range the Baby Trend Expedition is great. All strollers with a swivel/lock front wheel tend to go to either the right or the left when in fixed position unless you are going to spend $500+ It would be nice if the sun shade on the Baby Trend Expedition would come down further… we had to put a hat on our boy when we knew the sun would be directly in front of us. However, we fully appreciated the nice parent console and I utilized the remote swivel/lock control every time. We didn’t realize how much we loved these two perks until we didn’t have them.
