An amazing jogging stroller
September 13, 2022
As a mother of multiple kiddos, I have had ample opportunity to use a variety of jogging strollers in my life but none have exceeded my expectations the way this one has. Not only is this stroller aesthetically beautiful but it seems the Baby Jogger team thought through everything when creating the functionality of this stroller. Even my husband, who is rather unconcerned with baby gear as long as it works, was incredibly impressed.
Aesthetically, I couldn't imagine a more beautiful, sleek, and modern looking stroller. The black allows the hints of rose gold to really pop out and the design under the canopy has both my 5-month old and my 2-year old enamored when they are sitting in the stroller. (Note: I did not jog with my 5-month old, but rather allowed him to lay in the stroller when it was reclined.) Speaking of the recline, it is amazing. I used it to allow my kiddos to nap during the renaissance fair as this stroller's all-terrain ability was the first one to make the dirt and rock trails seem as smooth as a sidewalk. The way that airflow is a key focus while the kiddo is in the stroller was greatly appreciated as well. Not only does it have side vents that open, and stay open with a magnet (super easy to do one-handed!), but it also has a vent at the back of the stroller, and a peek-a-boo window on the top of the stroller. This allowed my kiddo to have access to see the world around him, and me to see him, but he never got stuffy or hot.
The front wheel can easily be changed from locked (while jogging) to unlocked and swivel-mode while using this stroller as a normal stroller. Figuring out how to do this was a bit difficult as I didn't realize the instruction manual had both pictures, and then a few pages later written instructions. The photo itself didn't make a whole lot of sense to me (I'm looking at you picture 16) but once paired with the written instructions for picture 16 a few pages later, it was clear as day. Anyway, once you figure out how to change the wheel, it's a piece of cake and amazing for truly navigating some tougher terrain while exploring with the kiddos and getting some exercise.
The one-handed brake at the handle was something I was grateful for as well. I love that I still have the brake down by the (rather large) storage basket too, but the quick reaction of the hand brake helps keep my kiddos safe in every situation. Safety was absolutely a top priority when they were making this stroller, and not only can you tell, but it's thoroughly appreciated.
Did I mention the fold yet? Because it's AMAZING. A lot of strollers advertise one-handed easy folding, but this one truly masters it. You just grab a strap and pull. The entire mechanism is so smooth, there is no scraping of the top on the ground, or the seat touching the floor, it just folds right up. Unfolding is just as smooth and easy, plus the stroller gets quite compact and fits in just a small portion of my trunk.
The one and only thing I would change about this stroller is make it capable of holding two kiddos, but other than that it's perfect. I'm going to hunt down the attachments to use my Baby Jogger infant seat in it too so I can make this my new go-to stroller for every occasion. Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this life-changing stroller so I can adventure more with my kiddos!
