When it comes to choosing the right running stroller there a many factors to consider. For instance, does it come with all of the standard safety features, is it durable enough to stand up to the abuse you’ll put it through, and does the price coincide with the years of use. Below I’ve compared the Joovy Zoom ATS, which is a more expensive running stroller, and the Jeep Overland Stroller, which is less expensive. What does the Joovy Zoom ATS have that the Jeep Overland Stroller doesn’t?
Both the Joovy Zoom ATS and the Jeep Overland Stroller offer a front 16-inch fixed wheel, as well as 16-inch rear wheels. Both running strollers come with all the standard safety features such as, child safety harness’s, hand brakes, parking brakes, and running leashes, aka tether straps. Both the Joovy Zoom ATS and the Jeep Overland Stroller also offer padded reclining seats, under-seat storage baskets, seat-back pockets, adjustable protective sun canopies, and parent trays (the Joovy’s is neoprene and the Jeeps is plastic). Both running strollers also offer quick-fold designs, however, the Joovy Zoom ATS offers an automatic lock that locks the stroller in the folded position. They both also weigh about the same, the Jeep Overland Stroller weighing 27 pounds, and the Joovy Zoom ATS weighing in at 26.8 pounds.
Features – Although both running strollers weigh about the same, I feel it’s important to mention that the Jeep Overland Stroller offers a lightweight aluminum frame, and the Joovy Zoom ATS offers a frame made from lightweight aircraft grade aluminum alloy, which is a higher strength alloy aluminum, meaning it’s a bit more durable. The Jeep Overland Stroller offers a spring loaded suspension, whereas the Joovy Zoom ATS offers a shock absorbing suspension with spring/air suspension in the rear. The Jeep Overland Stroller offers a max weight of 45 pounds, whereas the Joovy Zoom ATS goes all the way up to 75 pounds. 30 pounds is a big difference. As for extra’s, the Jeep Overland Stroller comes with quite a few, including a pedometer to track speed and distance, parent tray with cup holders, child snack tray with cup holder, an iBaby sound system which gives you and your little one the ability to listen to tunes on the trail, and an adjustable handlebar. The Joovy Zoom ATS offers a neoprene parent organizer with cup holders and a zippered pocket, a custom fit rain cover, a taller handlebar and wider seat with a high back, as well as no rear axle which allows for maximum stride length.
Price – This is perhaps the biggest difference. The Jeep Overland Stroller regularly lists for $239.99, however it is currently on sale at Amazon for $186.63, 22% off the list price. The Joovy Zoom ATS regularly lists for $349.99, and is currently on sale at Amazon for $200.75 in Red, 43% off the list price.
The Joovy Zoom ATS costs more, however, the maximum weight of 75 pounds warrants the extra cost. Plus, you get more suspension and shock absorbers, the durable aircraft grade aluminum frame, wider and taller seat, no rear axle for maximum stride, and a fold lock. On the other end of the spectrum, the Jeep Overland Stroller is less expensive, offers more extras like the pedometer, child’s tray, and iBaby sound system, plus you get the adjustable handlebar.
