When running after your kids isn't the only exercise you count on, the BOB double stroller enables jogging mommies to keep their running regimen up — even with double trouble on their hands.
Perfect for sidewalks, bumpy roads, and tattered trails, the BOB Revolution Duallie 12-inch Stroller keeps parents on track and their wee ones secure. While it's a bit wider than some others in the same class, the BOB offers families peace of mind that their lil honey is getting treated to a classy ride, as cushy reclining seats and air-filled suspension wheels provide a smooth run even over the bumpiest of roads. And, similar to the single BOB, car seat adaptors are available, making it easy to use at an early age.
To see what else I liked and disliked about the BOB Revolution Duallie,
For moms on a winding path, the front swivel wheel makes turning on a dime a cinch. The roomy basket underneath gives moms the opportunity to stash snacks, jackets, or other necessities on the go. The wide handle bar is fantastic for running as you can push and swipe your sweaty hair off your face without grasping for a small handle. But, if I had my druthers, I'd like to have some way of attaching goodies to the handle bar as I constantly find a need to latch on a bag or two — even if it's just a diaper bag. But, if you're running or on a trail, you won't need to make space for shopping loot.
When the day is done, the quick fold is just as easy as the single BOB stroller. Just pull up on the two handle bar locks and fold it in half. At 31.5 pounds, the double-wide buggy packs a heavy punch. And while the width measures 30.8 inches, which should fit most standard 32-inch door frames, it still seems like an arduous task to take this bad boy out for errands or a trip to the mall, making that and the $590 price tag the biggest drawbacks for the BOB Revolution Duallie.
I like the side-by-side strollers because both kids can look out and enjoy the view. The issue with that is that it makes pushing the stroller tougher on mom as she tries to maneuver in and out of tight spaces. For most double strollers, the weight is always going to be an issue, so my thinking is that give or take a pound or two, this stroller is clearly a winner.
