The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Jogger and the Schwinn Free Wheeler Jogging Stroller have several things in common, for instance both offer the front 12 inch swivel wheel and 16 inch rear wheels. Both offer a lightweight aluminum frame, and an adjustable handle bar. Both the Schwinn Turismo and the Schwinn Free Wheeler offer all the standard safety features, have a maximum load weight of 50 pounds, adjustable canopies, and they both have parent trays and child’s trays. So, what’s the difference?
This Schwinn Turismo weighs more, at 31 pounds it’s about 5 pounds heavier than the Schwinn Free Wheeler. But with that extra 5 pounds you also get a few extra features, for instance the MP3 speaker which allows you and your little one to listen to tunes on the trail, and the lock release positioned on the handle bar which allows you to lock and unlock your from swivel wheel with the push of a button. Also, the Schwinn Turismo offers spring suspension, whereas the Schwinn Free Wheeler only offers rear shocks. One other thing I noticed, the Schwinn Turismo offers a pivoting child’s tray that swings out of the way when you’re loading and unloading your child, the Schwinn Free Wheelers child tray does not pivot, but it is easily removable.
The only other difference is price. Currently at Amazon the Schwinn Free Wheeler is listed for $229.99, and the Schwinn Turismo lists for $199.99, however, the Schwinn Turismo is currently on sale for $177.94 in Blue. That’s an excellent deal if you ask me.
Both of these Schwinn Joggers are excellent buys, and durable strollers. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Jogger is less expensive, plus you also get an exposed spring suspension system, pivoting child’s tray, lock release, and MP3 speaker. On the other side of the fence, the Schwinn Free Wheeler Jogging Stroller comes with everything you need including an extra large protective canopy (bigger than the Turismo’s), it’s durable, lighter and therefore probably easier to push, but it’s also more expensive.
