You’ve narrowed it down to two swivel joggers, the Schwinn Turismo and the InStep Safari Grand. If you’re having a tough time deciding between the two, that’s because they’re basically identical. Both of these swivel joggers offer a 12-inch front locking swivel wheel, and 16-inch rear wheels, parking brakes, adjustable handle bars, and spring suspension. Both the Schwinn Turismo and the InStep Safari Grand also offer dual trigger fold, parent trays and child trays, 5-point harness’s, remote lock releases, and MP3 speakers. Why are they so similar? Well, they’re made by the same company, Pacific Cycle, Inc., so in essence they are the same design, however, the Schwinn Turismo is more expensive. So, why does the Schwinn Turismo cost more?
The Schwinn Turismo comes equipped with a newly designed lightweight aluminum frame, plus the wheels are aluminum as well, as opposed to the steel frame, and plastic wheels that the InStep Safari Grand has. The ending result is that the Schwinn Turismo is lighter, weighing 31 pounds as opposed to the InStep Safari’s 33 pounds…… WOW! 2 pounds….That’s it!? The truth is, aluminum is not that much lighter than steel when you’re talking small cookies, but it is more expensive, and for whatever reason, people/customers just have to have they’re aluminum frames, so…Pacific Cycle caved and built one.
The Schwinn Turismo does offer a 60 pound weight limit, that’s 10 pounds more than the InStep Safari Grand. The only other difference I could find was the fabric and color scheme options. The Schwinn Turismo is made with nylon fabric, as opposed to the InStep Safari Grand’s polyester fabric.
All in all, both of these swivel joggers are well built, and well worth the purchase price. If you’re still having trouble deciding, check out the different color scheme options. I know that the Schwinn Turismo offers red and blue, and the InStep Safari Grand offers yellow, and pink. Regardless of which one you choose, keep in mind that the manufacturer recommends that neither be used with a baby younger than 6 months. Your baby must be able to fully support his/her own head.
