Whether you’re running, walking, jogging, or biking, there’s a Baby Jogger Stroller made just for you.
Types of Baby Jogger Strollers
Baby Jogger Strollers are available in several different designs, each one unique and special. They offer 4 different styles of all-terrain strollers, one high performance running stroller, and one high performance swivel jogger. They also offer a unique Convertible POD, which converts from a stroller, to a trailer, to a jogger. Let’s take a look at each style separately.
All-Terrain Baby Jogger Strollers
In this category we have the Baby Jogger City Mini, City Mini GT, City Elite, and City Select. The main difference between all 4 designs is in the wheels and tires.
The City Select Baby Jogger Stroller is the only one that offers 4 wheels. With two 12″ forever-air filled tires in the rear, and two 8″ lightweight molded plastic wheels in the front. The forever-air tires are foam filled rather than air filled. They work on all types of terrain, but because they’re only located in the rear, this stroller is best used on urban terrain, like city streets and sidewalks. What’s really neat about the City Select Baby Jogger Stroller is that it offers 16 different seat arrangements. You can even purchase a second seat adapter kit and carry both your kids. You can use it with the seat facing forward or reversed, plus you get a bunch of different angles to choose from. The possibilities are endless, well almost endless. It does have a maximum weight capacity of 45 pounds per seat. So it’s best if you purchase it to use with your infant, of course then you also have to purchase the car seat adapter separately.
The City Mini Baby Jogger Stroller offers an 8″ quick-release EVA wheel in front, and two 8-inch EVA wheels in the rear. EVA wheels are a lightweight molded plastic, mainly suited for urban strolling on city streets and sidewalks. The City Mini Stroller is NOT intended for jogging, but it does offer a locking front swivel wheel for long distance strolling. It has an enormous sunshade with three positions, and a maximum weight capacity of 50 pounds.

The City Mini GT Baby Jogger Stroller is almost identical to the regular City Mini except that it offers three 8.5″ forever-air filled tires, as opposed to the EVA molded plastic tires. It also offers an adjustable handlebar, hand-operated parking brake, and 15 pounds more carrying weight capacity, with a total of 65 pounds.
The City Elite Baby Jogger Stroller is designed mostly for urban strolling, yet it can handle a little off-road use as well. It offers three 12″ forever-air filled tires all the way around, and a locking swivel wheel up front. This stroller is also NOT intended for jogging. However, with the swivel wheel locked you can maneuver easily over rough terrain. The City Elite also offers more extra’s, like the adjustable handlebar and soft handlebar console with multiple storage pockets. It also offers a maximum carrying weight capacity of 75 pounds.
