  • Stable, smooth ride
  • Easy to use with infant car seat
Best Uses
  • Paved road/trail
  • A little bulky to store, although better than most

Jogger/trail jogger
May 9, 2018
We purchased this jogger for trails and dirt roads. It has shocks that absorb some of the bumps of the trail. The sunshade is more than adequate. It maneuvers very easily. This stroller accommodated our 4 month old child with plenty for room for him to grow into. This is by far the best stroller we have ever owned. We have owned lesser quality joggers in the past and there is just no comparison! I would highly recommend this jogger! We are very satisfied.

The best choice for serious runners!
April 24, 2018
My husband is an avid marathon runner and this was his choice of best jogger for serious runners. He loves it! It's light, fast and tracks well. I'm a more casual runner but really like it too. It's fast and motivates you to really get moving. Moreover baby loves it too and sits up well. Only considerations are it's a fixed wheel, which while the better choice for running makes it harder when casually getting around e.g. going into cafes, shops, navigating crowds etc. I'd keep your stroller for that sort of thing. Unlike my stroller I don't have a cover for this and with baby more upright he's alert and likely won't sleep well in this. Overall, if you're in to running get this stroller!

Great running stroller!
August 7, 2017
I love love love this stroller! Always a smooth ride!
I used the car seat adapter until my baby was 5 months old. Now we've been "speed walking" 5 and 10 k's races. My little girl loves it. I can't wait until she turns 8 months so we can run run run! I highly recommend this product!

A Dream Stroller For Avid Runners
June 7, 2017
I cannot begin to say enough amazing things about the BOB Ironman stroller. The adjustable handle bar is perfect for both my 6'1" husband's and my own 5'1" frame. The basket underneath is the perfect size for a diaper bag and an extra large bottle of water. The mesh pocket behind the stroller is perfect for carrying a handheld water bottle, keys and a phone on a run. The large canopy covers our daughter perfect at all times of day. The wheels are removed seamlessly and the stroller folds easily into the trunk of our small sedan. The break and hand strap make running over hilly terrain possible since we would not feel comfortable otherwise.

The reason for the four starts is two-fold. First, when folded all the way and latched the plastic spoiler coving the front wheel is oddly positioned in a way that bends the plastic. After only folding it once it immediately became bent. Secondly, the break is very hard to engage. It has popped open a couple times and takes a bit of skill to master it. Once it does engage it is a spectacular and essential safety feature. Thirdly, the wheels look like they are going to lose their tread quickly. We on average run about 70 miles a week with the stroller. We are not sure it is meant for that kind of milage.

With all this said we are thrilled with the product. We will keep using it and hope that it continues to live up to its potential. We are so happy there is a product like this on the market!

More functional than ever!
December 15, 2016
I owned a prior BOB model for over 7 years and put over 2,500 running miles on it (not to mention strolling around town). Needless to say, mine was getting a little worn out (although it was still in great shape because it is a BOB and these strollers are workhorses!). I was so excited at the opportunity to upgrade to the new 2016 Ironman. I noticed a difference almost immediately on my first run. The adjustable handle is genius! It allows you to tune in exactly what feels comfortable and you can easily change it for running/walking, etc. The undercarriage basket is bigger and more accessible than prior models and the child restraint works great and the loop pulls to tighten make it so easy to adjust. The tires are a good size and run well. They have tread and provide good traction without feeling bulky or cumbersome to push. The steering is also great. Prior models were a bit difficult to turn while running with the fixed wheel and this one was a breeze. In fact the entire stroller felt so light and effortless, which is exactly what I need when pushing an ever growing child while running. I love that the Ironman provides a hand brake. When running I inevitably face hills at some point and having a brake to slow the momentum created by the weight is so nice. It is a huge safety feature. Lastly, the locking brake is easier to engage on the new model. The plastic handle is large enough and more ergonomically appropriate. With my old stroller I always hurt the top of my foot trying to disengage the brake without bending down- the new design eliminates the weird metal piece and is much easier to move.

Overall I love this stroller! In full disclosure, there is one downside...In typical BOB fashion the stroller comes bare bones without any accessories. Since my old stroller was a 2009 model, the accessories I already owned wouldn't fit the new stroller (accessories for models 2011 and newer are compatible). That meant that I had to reacquire a new weather shield, handlebar console, and snack tray. On a positive note though, the newer accessories are an improvement as well. The new handlebar console even comes with a tire pump- again genius!

I was SO excited to receive the new 2016 IRONMAN Stroller. It has great look with the yellow fashion color, and the adjustable handlebar allows for my wife & I to use it functionally. There is ample storage as well, which allows me to bring nutrition along for the run.
