When it comes to choosing a jogging stroller, regardless of whether you plan to run, walk, jog, or hike, there is a BOB Stroller made just for you. They are the best of the best, offering high performance features in every category. Yes, they are expensive but they’re also built to last and made with such quality materials you never have to worry about using BOB’s 5 year warranty plan that’s included with your purchase. BOB Strollers give you more control, allowing you to customize the ride to fit you or your little one’s every needs.
Types of BOB Strollers
There are 5 different models of BOB Strollers, and although each one is designed for a specific purpose, they do have a few things in common. For instance, all five BOB Strollers offer a state-of-the-art coil spring suspension system with adjustable shock absorbers. So in other words, you can fine-tune your suspension depending on your child’s weight as well as the terrain. All five BOB Strollers also offer adjustable tracking, which is a feature only BOB offers and it’s extremely handy. It allows you to maintain a straight line when in jog mode, or when the front wheel is locked into a fixed position. Some jogging strollers/running strollers tend to drift either left or right while you’re running down the road causing you to constantly have to reposition the stroller. This can be a real pain, and performance wise it’s not the best. With BOB Strollers, you don’t have to worry about it.
Additional features that all 5 BOB Strollers have in common include, reclining seats that recline down to 70 degrees from vertical, padded 5-point child safety harness’s, wrist straps and parking brakes. They all have large canopies with a 5 position toggle system and a range of 125 degrees, allowing you to block the sun from any angle, as well as viewing windows that allow you to sneak peeks at your little one. All 5 BOB Strollers also offer an easy, two-step fold design for convenient transport and storage, and 4 of them come as Duallie Strollers with double seats. Let me give you an idea of what each design offers below.
BOB Revolution SE Stroller
First we have the most popular of the BOB Strollers, the BOB Revolution SE. The SE stands for “Sport Experience”, which means that it is designed for both walking and jogging alike. It comes equipped with a 12 inch front locking swivel wheel and 16 inch rear wheels. The front swivel wheel allows you to turn on a dime and then locks into a fixed position to provide you with increased stability while jogging. It can handle any terrain and the state of the art suspension system provides the smoothest of rides. The Revolution SE Stroller offers a 70 pound weight capacity and weighs 25 pounds. This is the jogging stroller you want if you plan on doing a little bit of both, walking and light jogging. This BOB Stroller also comes as a duallie, called the BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller. It offers two seats and a 100 pound weight capacity.
