BOB Revolution Stroller

Strollin': BOB Revolution

If running is your modus operandi, the BOB Revolution may be right up your jogging path. Although the price is a bit steep, it is comparable to those in the same category.

For $390, I can hardly find a better jogging deal than the BOB Revolution. There are so many things to love about it. First off, the air-filled tires provide an ultra smooth ride, as it is ready to handle all-terrain. Additionally, the front swivel wheel provides easy maneuvering, which is a huge plus when you're navigating a jogging trail that twists and turns. If you are on a straight path and prefer a locked wheel, just snap a latch down to keep the wheel locked forward facing.

Keeping stroller purchases to a minimum, parents will like being able to use the BOB soon after their child's birth (6 — 8 weeks of age is recommended age). Adapters are available to make it compatible with various car seats (Graco Infant Snugride and Peg Perego Primo Viaggio are just two) though it is advised not to run with a baby under six or eight-months-old as their necks may not be fully developed. As the tot ages, he can relax in the spacious five-point-harness reclined seat as mommy pushes her way through a sweaty routine. And, with all of the pouches, the toddler can organize his juice and snacks beside him keeping the stop-and-gos to a minimum.

When the jog is over and you've got to store this bad boy, get ready to work out your biceps. While it folds very easily with a quick two-motion breakdown, it's no easy feat to lift the 22.6 pound buggy. But for those of you ready to work off the baby weight, you may not mind the two second arm workout after a 30 minute run.

Other perks of the BOB are: a padded handle bar that is easy to push while running, a peek hole sun canopy that looks more like a sunroof for the tiny passenger, a spacious basket for storage, netted storage on the back of the seat, and a brake system that works like a charm, which is especially important when going at a faster pace.

From where I stand, the only major drawbacks to this stroller are that you have to wait about six weeks before using it, the weight and the price. If you can be flexible on those three items, I think the BOB is a winner. After all, it seems to provide much of the same as the $900 options, but you can get a workout as well! Apparently I'm not alone — just ask meandtheo.

We will be finishing off our mini season of original stroller reviews with a special giveaway in October. Stay tuned for more details.

Thanks for another great review and the info about the six weeks--I never new why!I was looking for a jogging stroller when registering but didn't end up getting one because I was overwhelmed by the choices and the weights!

I use the double version of this stroller and it is amazing! It's not too wide for most places (even as a double) and it is the easiest thing to push in the world. We have a baby and a toddler in it and it feels like you are pushing 5 pounds. It's just so lightweight feeling when you are actually using it. It's also great for hiking. I like all the storage areas. The little interior seat pockets are nice for juice cups and pacis.

The six week recommendation is because the baby shouldn't be on running terrain until then. The carseat does throw off the balance, though, so if you plan to run with it, wait until they can go into the stroller itself.Question though - don't all jogging strollers have air-filled tires? I've never found one that didn't.

Our friends have a double-bob and it is amazing for jogging and off-road stuff and it's got really great sun-protection, but it's not the most versatile since it's almost as wide as a door (but it is a double after all) and I wouldn't want to take it anywhere indoors.

tngirl...they say you should not run with the car seat in place because it may tip over with the extra weight. i think this is the same with all runners...and before six weeks of age you really shouldn't be doing too much running anyway, i sure as heck didn't want to!

Quick, uneducated, question from a soon to be mom. If it has the adapter for the car seat carriers, why can't you use it until 6 weeks? Are there other strollers with the car seat adapters that you can use before that? And if so, why the difference?

how exciting to get a shout out in the blog post...thanks! again, can't say enough good stuff about this stroller, if you like to run/jog this is the way to go. a tip: i used this stroller for running much sooner than the recommended 6-8 months. i just detached the removable headrest/positioner from my Snuzzler and put her in like that...i used the recline position and made sure to run on a pretty flat surface (no potholes), she was fine, in fact she often would go right to sleep in those early months.
