We are living in an increasingly health-conscious society, and exercise is becoming an integral part of more and more people’s lives every year. Free time is obviously at a premium when you are raising children, but thanks to a wide variety of jogging strollers on the market, parents of young children won’t have to say goodbye to running. Jogging strollers have come a long way in recent years, and the market’s best models are surprisingly maneuverable and smooth, while offering real safety and comfort for your child. Here are the best jogging strollers available today. All prices are approximations.
Valco Baby Matrix Stroller — $375
The top jogging stroller on our list comes from Valco. The three-wheeled stroller comes with a swivel front wheel that gives it an excellent range of motion and unparalleled maneuverability. The front wheel is also lockable in the situations that you want to go in a straight line. It comes with well-filled tires that make for a passenger and driver-pleasing smooth ride.
Babies will also enjoy the reclining, comfortable seat, which is perfect for sleepy tots. It boasts plenty of carrying space down below, which is a great place to put a diaper bag, a bottle, snacks, toys, and whatever else you may need. Though it is a little more expensive than many of its competitors, you get what you pay for, and in this instance, you are paying for a top-class stroller that will ensure a smooth run for you and a smooth ride for your child.
BOB Sport Utility Stroller — $300
Called a “sport utility stroller” because of its durability and solidity, this model from BOB offers quality mobility and top-class safety features. It will especially appeal to trail runners, as it is strong enough to glide smoothly over various different terrains without compromising your child’s well being, thanks to its heavy-duty built-in seat and harness. It also is the only jogging stroller available that boasts adjustable tracking, which is meant to minimize stroller drift. 16″ high-impact polymer wheels provide go-anywhere durability and performance needed by active parents! Though it is powerful, it isn’t cumbersome and folds up at the touch of a button.
If you like to run off the beaten path or are looking to get more than a couple of years (or kids) out of your stroller, this is the one for you.
Tike Tech All Terrain X3 Sport Double Stroller — $350
If you’ve got two little ones to take out on your jog, this is the stroller for you. This black beauty offers a ride that is as smooth and comfortable as its single-seat competitors. Its Independent Frame Dampening (IFD) Shox suspension system gobbles up bumps in the road, so your passenger won’t have to. Every parent knows that too much sun isn’t good for youngsters, and they will appreciate its all-encompassing canopy that will shield your child from the sun and rain alike. Like the previous two models, it features tons of storage room and is easy to fold up.
Simply put, it is the best double-seated jogging stroller on the market.
InStep Safari Swivel Jogging Stroller — $145
If you are looking for a quality jogging stroller at a great value, this model is the one for you. The Safari Swivel has won awards for its safety, and it comes with parking breaks, front breaks, and back breaks. Along with its impressive safety features, it is easy to control, light (21 pounds), and strong enough to handle a variety of terrains thanks to its 16-inch wheels. Your baby will appreciate its comfortable, luxurious (as far as baby seats go) built-in seats. It is also easily foldable and has moderate storage space. While it may not sport all of the features that some of this list’s more expensive strollers do, it is still a great stroller at an excellent value that actually outperforms many pricier jogging strollers.
BOB Revolution Stroller — $389
San Luis Obispo, California stroller specialists BOB make their second appearance on our list with their incredibly maneuverable Revolution Stroller. It is extremely light — just 23 pounds — and portable, and its swiveling front wheel offers exemplary control and a tight turning radius. While it is light and maneuverable, it is sill solidly constructed and offers a quality suspension, which combine to guarantee that your child will be safe and comfortable.
The Bob Revolution Stroller also offers an expansive canopy and plenty of storage space, while being easy to fold up. While it certainly isn’t just for city use, it is especially helpful for running in places like cities that require you to have unparalleled control of your stroller.
