By comparison, the Baby Jogger Summit XC Single Stroller and the Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging are quite similar, however there are a few differences that may help you decide.
Both the Baby Jogger Summit and the Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Strollers offer a 12 inch front locking swivel wheel, and 16 inch rear wheels. Both also offer quick-release pneumatic tires, lightweight aluminum alloy frames, and quick fold designs. In addition, both the Joovy Zoom and the Baby Jogger Summit also offer all of the standard safety features, such as 5-point child safety harness, parking brake, reflectors, and protective sun canopies. Both Swivel Jogging Strollers also offer reclining seats, large under-seat storage baskets, seat-back storage, and a max weight capacity of 75 pounds.
The Joovy Zoom offers a shock absorbing suspension system, in other words, it’s a coil spring suspension with shock absorbers. It also has no rear axle, which allows for maximum stride length, and offers 3 inches of travel. The Baby Jogger Summit offers an all-wheel independent suspension system, as well as hand-operated rear drum brakes for increased stability on hilly terrain. The Joovy Zoom also comes with a running leash for safety, as well as reflective stitching on the harness itself. The Baby Jogger Summit offers a padded child safety harness for additional comfort, and it’s quick fold design folds in one easy step, one-handed even. The Joovy Zoom has an extra wide seat with mesh pockets built into the sides for toys, snacks, or sippy cups. It also offers a neoprene parent organizer with cup holders and a zippered pocket, as well as a tire pump for emergencies.
Both of these swivel jogging strollers reviewed really well. The Baby Jogger Summit had 22 out of 27 reviewers rate it 4 to 5 stars, with 5 being the max. In other words, 81% of the reviewers were extremely pleases with their purchase. The Joovy Zoom had 45 out of 48 reviewers rate it 4 to 5 stars, that’s 94% customer satisfaction. The biggest complaint for both swivel joggers was that they’re big and heavy. Both weigh roughly 29 pounds, which is actually not bad compared to other swivel jogging strollers on the market.
The Baby Jogger Summit XC lists for $399.99, whereas the Joovy Zoom 360 lists for $215.00. So why does the Baby Jogger Summit cost so much more? I believe it has to do with the all-wheel independent suspension system and hand-operated rear drum brakes. In fact, I believe it’s the only swivel jogging stroller to offer that kind of sophistication. All in all, both swivel joggers are well priced, and will last you for years to come.
