Joovy Zoom 360 Review:
The Joovy Zoom 360 is one of the largest swivel joggers on the market today. It’s made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, weighs only 27 pounds, and sports a 3-inch travel shock absorbing suspension system. It has a swiveling front wheel, hence the “360”, that can also be locked into a fixed position for light jogging. It has all the necessities, including a 5-point harness, wrist strap, reflective stitching, and parking brake.
HUGE Canopy – The Joovy Zoom 360 has one of the largest canopies. It completely covers your child. It also has a peek-a-boo window and a sun visor.
Under-Seat Storage Basket – This is also HUGE! Plus, it’s also easy to access. You could actually fit a medium sized purse, a diaper bag, and a few odds and ends in this basket, no problem!
No Rear Axle – The Joovy Zoom 360 is missing the rear axle. Not only does this make the storage basket easy to access, but it’s also great for those that have a long stride length when they’re running. You don’t have to worry about tripping over the stroller while you’re really getting after it.
Smooth and Maneuverable – The Joovy Zoom 360 really does steer and move like a dream. You could push is one handed with no problem. The swiveling front wheel makes is maneuverable, and the shock absorbing suspension system smooths out any trail.
Easy and Compact Fold – Although the Joovy Zoom 360 is one of the largest strollers on the market, it actually folds down pretty compact, especially since it has quick release wheels in the rear. It doesn’t offer a one step fold design, but you can pretty much do it two.
Parent Organizer – Most high-end swivel joggers make you buy the parent tray’s separate, however, the Joovy Zoom 360 comes with a neoprene parent organizer right off the bat. It has two cup holders and a little organizer pocket. Plus, the seat itself also has mesh pockets on the inside for toys, drinks, or snacks, so you don’t necessarily need a child’s tray.
What I Don’t Like
Seat-Back Height – The Joovy Zoom 360 measures 20″ from the seat to the canopy. This is not enough room for taller toddlers. The weight capacity is 75 pounds, which is great, but because of the lack of head room, you generally can’t use it all the way up to 75 pounds. Now, I have to add that this is pretty common when it comes to jogging strollers with the higher weight capacity. The only jogging stroller I’ve found that offers a couple more inches head room, is the Baby Jogger Summit. The BOB Revolution offers about the same seat back height as the Joovy Zoom 360. Now the problem is not necessarily the seat back height, it’s the canopy. The back of the canopy on the Joovy Zoom steeps down in the back which affects the head room. Same deal on the BOB Revolution. The Baby Jogger Summit offers a dome like canopy, which allows for more head room. So, if you’re looking for a stroller for your toddler that’s already 41″ tall, I would not recommend the Joovy Zoom 360.
It’s Tall – This could be a good thing if you are tall, but if you’re shorter than average, you may not be able to see over the canopy. Also, the handle bar is not adjustable, and it’s also tall. So keep that in mind.
Front Wheel Wobble or Straying – There were a few complaints from reviewers regarding the front wheel wobbling or straying when it’s in the fixed position. This concerned me, so I did some research. First of all, it is recommended that the tire pressure be an even 35 PSI in all three tires. This should eliminate the straying issue. There is also a fix for the wobbling issue, but it means you have to remove the fool plate and tighten the nut the secures the front wheel. This particular fix worked for most, but it did not work for all of the reviewers with this issue. Some returned the front wheel to Joovy and was given a replacement front wheel free of charge. Again, this worked for some, but not for others.
The Joovy Zoom 360 did really well in terms of customer satisfaction. With 130 out of 151 rating it 4 to 5 stars, that’s an 86%. That’s not the best I’ve seen, but it certainly makes the Top 5. Most loved it, stating that it was an excellent jogger at an excellent price. The most loved features was the smooth ride and suspension system, the HUGE canopy, and all the storage.
As for complaints, most mirrored my own. There were a couple of complaints about the tire pump that comes with the Joovy Zoom 360. I guess it’s next to worthless, but that really shouldn’t be a deciding factor if you ask me. All in all, even with the complaints, most really seemed to love the Joovy Zoom 360, and would recommend it to their friends.
