Best Jogging Strollers 2017
- Baby Jogger City Mini Stroller
An oversized canopy with two peek-a-boo windows and UB 50+ sun protection are just two of the many thoughtful details Baby Jogger has put into its City Mini Stroller to make it stand out. In addition to the protection offered to young passengers, the City Mini Stroller has a flexible recline system that allows parents to adjust the stroller seat to any angle, from upright to nearly flat.
Parents appreciate the easy, one-handed fold mechanism that lets you unsnap two straps, pull on the handle and fold the stroller. It’s light – less than 18 pounds – and is easy to carry up and down stairs. The front wheel can be locked for stability or unlocked for maneuverability. While they are sold separately, there are a wide variety of accessories for the stroller that can turn the stroller into a pram, increase infant car seat compatibility, and provide extra storage.
- Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller
A popular jogging stroller option, the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller is a fabulous travel companion for any active lifestyle. Whether you need something that is easy-to-steer for shopping or a stroller that can handle high-mileage running, the air-filled all-terrain bicycle tires help you reach your goals.
One-handed fold allows you to quickly collapse the stroller, and the tires come off quickly and easily to fit the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller in the trunks of compact cars. A lockable front wheel allows for safe running, but can be unlocked when you need extra maneuverability — steering can be done one-handed when the front wheel is unlocked. A large under-carriage basket allows you to fit shopping bags, diaper bags or gym bags, and the parent tray gives you a place for your phone, keys, and two drinks.
- BOB Revolution Flex Stroller
You get what you pay for, and runners and non-runners alike rave about the BOB Revolution Flex Stroller. Unlike many other lightweight and jogging strollers with fixed handlebars, the BOB Revolution Flex has a padded handlebar that can be adjusted to nine different positions for parents of all heights. In addition to parent comfort, the BOB Revolution Flex Stroller contains many comfortable features for children, including a padded reclining seat, padded five-point harness, and suspension system with two stages of weight support.
The stroller has a two-step folding system that offers quick and convenient transport and storage and is compatible with the BOB B-Safe Infant Car Seat and BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter. Once children reach eight weeks old, they can ride in the stroller without a car seat adapter; children at least eight months old up to 50 pounds can ride in the stroller while you are out running.
- BOB Revolution SE Single Stroller
BOB is a highly recognized brand for runners, from occasional joggers to professional endurance athletes. The suspension system in the BOB Revolution SE Single Stroller provides a smooth ride for children, no matter what the terrain is like, and the front wheel can lock for better stability when running or remain unlocked to swivel when you need to make sharp turns.
The accessory adapter, which costs extra, makes this a versatile option for individuals who want to use this as a travel system. The bar allows parents to use Britax and BOB, Graco, Chicco and Peg Perego car seats with their strollers. Once children are older, the adjustable seat back goes from vertical to 70 degrees back, allowing youngsters to sit up and look around or take a nap.
- Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System
The Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System is a great combination of an infant car seat and lightweight stroller. The stroller offers parents three separate options for their children from newborn to 50 pounds. For babies, the stroller seat and canopy easily click in and out of the lightweight frame so that the KeyFit car seat quickly attaches to the adapter. Once your baby is big enough to use either, the KeyFit car seat also clicks into the adapter, with the Bravo seat attached. After your child has outgrown the KeyFit car seat, you can use the Bravo as an everyday stroller.
These characteristics have made the Bravo Trio Travel System one of the most versatile lightweight strollers available. To increase its flexibility, the stroller has a one-handed fold that allows the stroller to be free-standing, even when collapsed.
- Graco Relay Click Connect Performance Jogger
When you’re looking for a comfortable jogging stroller for both you and your child, look no further than the Graco Relay Click Connect Jogging Stroller. The pneumatic tires, suspension system, and locking front-swivel wheel give you excellent steering over all types of terrain, and flexibility to choose whether or not you want to focus on maneuverability or stability depending on your activity level. The stroller has a 70-pound weight limit, with a maximum child weight of 50 pounds, and includes both three- and five-point harnesses.
The stroller is compatible with all Graco Click Connect car seats with no accessories needed. It also includes a parent tray, roomy under-carriage storage tray and zippered storage. Children have an armrest bar with a cupholder and multi-level reclining system.
