Baby Jogging Strollers – From Swivel Joggers To Running Strollers

BOB Revolution SE Baby Jogging Stroller

If you’re on the hunt for the best baby jogging stroller, I might be able to help. First of all, there are a couple different types of baby jogging strollers. There’s the Swivel Jogging Stroller, and the traditional Running Stroller. Now, I feel it’s important to mention that baby jogging strollers are intended for babies 6 months and up. Baby must be able to hold his/her head up unassisted. If your interests lie in jogging, then you must understand that trying to jog with a baby younger than 6 months could be dangerous. On the other hand, if you’re not so much interested in jogging, but really like the 3 wheel design of the baby jogging stroller, then maybe an All-Terrain Stroller would be more your speed.

The first type of baby jogging stroller is the Swivel Jogging Stroller, pictured above. These are designed to offer the best of both worlds. They come equipped with a locking front swivel wheel. These types of baby jogging strollers offer excellent maneuverability in the swivel wheel position, enabling you to turn on a dime. In the fixed wheel position, they convert to a light jogger. Now the reason I say “light” is because these types of baby jogging strollers are not intended for serious running, only light jogging. The reason for this is, even though the front wheel locks, if it were to come loose while running hard, the baby jogging stroller could topple over. Plus, most swivel jogging strollers are missing a couple key features that would make them a  running stroller, like a running leash, or a hand brake.

The next type of baby jogging stroller is called the Running Stroller. Now these are designed for serious running. They come equipped with a fixed front wheel, and most also offer running leashes, which hook to the handle bar and then to your wrist, as well as hand brakes, an absolute must for running. These types of baby jogging strollers usually don’t come with a bunch of bells and whistles, mainly because the stroller weight has such a large impact on the ease of running. However, some running strollers do offer parent trays with cup holders, as well as child’s trays.

Below is a list of some of the best baby jogging strollers with both a swivel wheel and a fixed wheel. I’ve included a short description for each, as well as a link to a full in-depth review, including a full list of features, the good and the bad, customer feedback, and video demonstrations.
