10 Best Single Jogging Strollers for 2018

On the market there’s many running strollers, but to be honest not every model is safe enough for jogging with it. To my ranking I’ve chosen only the best jogging strollers, that are made of quality materials and have features that provide safe ride.

Here is the list of top running strollers for 2018 for one baby, based on customers satisfaction:

1. Chicco TRE Performance Jogging Stroller

Chicco TRE Performance
Chicco TRE Performance – one of the best running strollers for 2018

Chicco also offers top-quality jogger with many useful features in a medium price range. To be honest, it may be the best equipped jogging stroller at this price.

What distinguished this jogging stroller from other models at this price is the removable seat. You can detach it from the frame and switch it for KeyFit or KeyFit 30 infant car seats. Of course you can also install the car seat into the regular seat and use two canopies to fully protect the baby from sun, wind and rain. It’s really awesome that this jogging stroller has two ways of creating travel system.

So you can actually use this stroller since birth – through first 6 months only for strolling with an infant car seat, and then switch it for the regular seat and use the stroller for all-terrain walks and runs.

Chicco TRE Performance can be used as infant car seat carrier

Let’s take a look at other features. It has 3 spoked wheels with pneumatic tires. Front one is 12’’, the rear ones are 16’’. Another awesome function is that you can switch between locked and swivel front wheel using the hand activation from parent console. You don’t have to bend and touch dirty muddy wheel to lock it. It’s really great that a medium price range stroller has this feature.

Chicco TRE Performance Jogging Stroller has also adjustable FlexCore suspension so you can choose firm ride when you’re jogging and soft ride when you’re strolling over bumps and debris. The suspension is foot-activated. Adjustable suspension is a big advantage, especially that other strollers at this price don’t have it.

What I also like about this jogging stroller is the handbrake which doubles as a deceleration brake that allows you to slow down at any time and fully control the speed and as a parking brake that lock the rear wheels in place.

Moreover, there is an adjustable handlebar with 4 height settings. It’s also very rare feature among jogging strollers at this price range. There is also a safety tether attached to the push bar to prevent the stroller from running away from you.

Chicco TRE Performance Jogging Stroller
Chicco TRE Performance is pocket-friendly, yet it has many features of high-end models!

The main seat has 5-position recline and you can adjust the back rest with one hand. There’s an extendable 3-panel canopy which provides really nice sun coverage. There’s a plastic and mesh peek-a-boo windows with magnetic closure.

That’s not all! This stroller has really reasonable price and comes with two accessories, that many high-end products don’t include. It is equipped with parent console that has two beverage holders and one pouch (for your key and phone) and a belly bar that also serves for installing the infant car seat.

Now let’s talk about the size and weight of Chicco TRE. It weighs 28.5 lbs which is not a little, but it is a typical weight for joggers. Moreover, this jogging stroller feature one-hand fold with self-stand for easier storage at home and quick-release wheels for easier transportation in car trunk. If you have small trunk this stroller may be too bulky to fit in, but detaching the wheels should help.

What other parents think

This stroller is only getting more and more popular recently. I checked it on Amazon when I was creating this ranking of the best jogging strollers for 2018. It has over 64 reviews and most of them were positive. You should check if there are any new reviews on your own, because it changes really quickly. Just click here and skip to customer reviews on Amazon.

Below you can see what features parents like and dislike.

ProsCons
  • Easy assembly
  • Glides smoothly
  • Great suspension and high-quality tires
  • Absorbs shocks on gravel and tough trails
  • Well-made and durable
  • Big canopy goes far down
  • Reasonable price
  • Includes few accessories
  • May be a bit difficult to open at the beginning
  • Storage basket isn’t very roomy (fits only a medium-sized diaper bag)
  • Quite large and the front wheel sticks out pretty far
My rate:

Keep in mind

If you have small car you are going to struggle a bit to squeeze it in and you’ll need to fold down the front wheel to make it more compact which means getting hands all dirty. If you have big car trunk you won’t have that problem.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. It’s probably the best equipped jogging stroller at this price. It’s convertible and has many versatile features like the most expensive strollers but at much affordable price.

2. Many moms use it as primary and only stroller: since birth with infant car seat for long walks and when the baby gets older for jogging. It helps to recover physically (and mentally) after the pregnancy and lose weight

3. It’s one of the few jogging strollers that has a removable main seat and converts into a car seat carrier.

2. Thule Urban Gile Jogging Stroller

Thule Urban Glide
Thule Urban Glide

This is one of my favorite models in this ranking of the best jogging strollers for 2018. Thule knows how to make a heavy-duty and safe stroller.

Frist of all, it weighs only 23 lbs which makes it one of the lightest running strollers on the market. It’s easier to lift and put in the car trunk or carry down the stairs than other models. This model is also very slim and easily goes through normal doorways and elevators.

There is nicely padded seat with vented top and near-flat recline so your child can comfortably nap on-the-go.  This stroller is equipped also with extendable sunshade which covers baby down to the knees. It can protect baby from all weather conditions. There is also a peek-a-boo window that closes with magnets.

What many parents like about Thule Urban Glide is the adjustable ergonomic handlebar. It rotates from 35.5’’ to 44’’ from the ground and makes pushing easy for all-height parents. Thanks to it you won’t stoop over the stroller and you don’t have to worry about wrist pain.

Thule Urban Glide has super soft seat padding. The harness (even the waist straps) also has nicely padded covers.

This running stroller has 3 wheels with air-filled tires. Inflating is easy to do and you can use normal bike pump for it. Front wheel is 12’’, the rear ones are 16’’. As in other joggers the front wheel swivels to provide you with better agility and locks to create longer and more stable wheelbase – designed for jogging and going over harsh terrain. It has only a foot-operated parking brake. There is also rear suspension that cushions the ride over gravel and unbeaten roads and a safety wrist strap.

Thule didn’t forget about one more important thing – when we go out for a jogging session with the baby, we take a lot of stuff and need large storage space. This jogging stroller provides parents with spacious basket under the seat. It has also zippered cover made of water resistant material.

Thule Urban Glide 2.0 new stroller for 2018
Thule Urban Glide 2.0 – new model that is going to hit the stores in 2018

It is noteworthy that Thule has just released the new model – Thule Urban Glide 2.0 for 2018. This upgraded version is equipped with a handbrake – perfect for controlling speed on hilly terrain. Another change has been made for the canopy – it is made of UPF 50+ material to provide even better protection from the sun.

The new Thule Urban Glide 2.0 weighs a little more than regular Urban Glide (about 2 lbs more). Unfortunately this new model also costs much more – it is even up to $180 more expensive. The previous model is medium price range, but the new version is rather high-end product. You can compare prices for both models and different color versions on Amazon. Here is the regular Thule Urban Glide and here is the Thule Urban Glide 2.0.

If you want to read more about the new Thule Urban Glide 2 read my full review.

What other parents think

Urban Glide 2.0 has just been released and doesn’t have many reviews on Amazon yet (which I’m sure will change quickly), so I checked the regular Thule Urban Glide customer reviews. It’s really highly-rated by other parents. At the moment of writing this, there are over 168 reviews, including over 142 positive ones. Don’t forget to check current number of reviews and overall rating of both models.

In the table below you can see what parents love and complain about most often.

ProsCons
  • Easy assembly
  • Great maneuverability
  • Breeze to push and run with
  • Great sport stroller for serious runners, serves also as everyday stroller
  • Top-quality and well equipped like high-end models, but much cheaper
  • Compact and light, yet very solid and sturdy
  • Large storage bin can accommodate all necessities for day trip or few shopping bags
  • Adjustable handlebar is perfect for parents of different height
  • Compact fold fits in most of the car trunks
  • Very easy folding and opening mechanism
  • Locking the front wheel takes practice
  • The highest setting for the seat is still reclined (read more about this complaint in customer reviews on Amazon)
  • Few parents mention the seat is pretty narrow

Keep in mind

Unfortunately Thule Urban Glide doesn’t come with any accessories. Snack tray, cup holder, parent organizer or rain cover are sold separately. If you want to turn this stroller into a travel system you need to buy special infant car seat adapter which is also sold separately (for about $60). You can check the accessories on Amazon as it offers the best price for these items.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. It’s not bulky like other joggers. Thanks to such a lightweight and compact design this jogging stroller can be also used as an everyday, urban stroller.

2. It’s easy to put in the car trunk and doesn’t take up the whole space – perfect for parents who have small cars.

3. For such a high-quality and nicely equipped running stroller the price is really reasonable.

3. BOB Revolution Flex Lunar Jogging Stroller 

BOB Revolution Flex Lunar Jogging Stroller
BOB Revolution Flex Lunar Jogging Stroller

BOB Revolution Flex is one of the most popular jogging strollers in the high price range and the newest version – with reflective Lunar fabric is even more awesome! It’s not only one of the top joggers but also one of the best strollers of 2018.

Lunar fabric glows in the dark to keep you and your baby safe and visible in low light. It’s perfect for parents who like strolling or jogging in the evening or early in the morning.

Moreover it has adjustable suspension system – probably the best on the market. Thank to it, this jogger provides ultra-smooth, cushioned ride, no matter if you go over cobblestone, gravel, grass, sand or wooded trails. You can also adjust the suspension to your baby’s weight.

It rolls like a breeze also thanks to big wheels with air-filled tires. Front wheel is 12.5’’ (bigger than other models have) and the rear wheels are 16’’. Like in other jogging strollers, front wheel swivels which makes the stroller more agile and easier to turn, but it also locks for added stability during running and walking over bumps.

There’s also single action brake, very easy to set and release even in flip flops. Big plus for BOB.

BOB Revolution Flex Lunar - Reflective Fabric

There are few other things that I like about this stroller. It has 9-position adjustable handlebar that can literally accommodate parents of all heights and a safety tether. There is also oversized canopy that goes really low and covers the baby down to the knees. It has also a peek-a-boo window.

The seat offers deep recline – useful when your toddler wants to take a nap during stroll. The newest model has also improved the reclining method which is now one-handed. The seat has weight capacity of 75 lbs. There’s also very big storage bin underneath the seat which can easily accommodate large diaper bag.

Although this is a high-end product it has few drawbacks that I have to mention. First of all, it doesn’t come with accessories so if you want to add an infant car seat, parent or child tray you need to spend extra many on them.

Small footrest is another disadvantage. And the thing I dislike the most is 2-step folding. It’s not very difficult, but it’s definitely harder than in many other models. Folded BOB Revolution Flex is also bulky so you may have problems with fitting in to the trunk if you have a small car. It’s weight – 28 lbs, is decent (typical for this type of strollers).

What other parents think

BOB Revolution FLEX with Lunar fabric doesn’t have many reviews on Amazon yet, but they are all positive ones (at least last time I checked). Here are the features that parents praise and complain about.

ProsCons
  • Fast shipping
  • Quick and easy to assemble
  • Provides smooth ride and protects baby from bouncing around
  • Handles the most difficult and bumpy terrain
  • Easy to operate with one hand
  • Sturdy and strong
  • Bigger and bulkier than many other models
  • Lack of must-have accessories (adding them may be costly)

Regular version of BOB Revolution FLEX (without Lunar fabric) has much more reviews on Amazon – it’s not only one of the best-selling joggers, but also highly rated by other parents. And it has a bit lower price. Click here to check the customer reviews and current price.

Keep in mind

This big stroller may be difficult to store or transport, especially if you have a small apartment and small car. Moreover, it’s one of the most expensive single jogging strollers (but it is an investment for years).

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. If you’re a serious and advanced runner and love off-road trips this stroller is definitely for you. It has probably the best suspension system ever.

2. It’s one of the easiest to push strollers. You can steer it with one hand and you won’t feel the weight, even if you have a heavy 3-year-old in the seat.

3. Thanks to reflective fabric you will be really visible in low light.

Psst! There is also another great jogging stroller from BOB Revolution – PRO 2016 model. It has the same features like FLEX with one exception – PRO has additional awesome handbrake. It’s very useful for those how like hiking and jogging in hilly area. You can read more information in my full review of BOB Revolution PRO or you can just check its current price on Amazon.

4. Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller

Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller
Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller

This is the most expensive and fancy single jogging stroller in this ranking. It offers many versatile features that make it suitable for everyday use and workout sessions. But is it really worth the money?

It has 3-wheel construction and air-pumped tires like other models. Great thing is that it includes tire pump (at this price it would be weird if it didn’t).

There is one useful feature that is rare among joggers. It has Speed 3 Steering System which offers three setting for the front wheel: full lock for running and the toughest terrain, partial 30 degrees swivel for light jogging and 360 degrees swivel for walking and everyday use.

Front wheel is 12’’ and the rear ones are 16’’ which is typical among jogging strollers. There is also all-wheel suspension that soak up bumps on the road. This model has really great performance and resistance when you’re moving at speed.

I also like that it weighs only 26 lbs which is really nice as for a jogging strollers. It has light aluminum frame.

Folding is fairly easy and 1-step. This stroller has also automatic lock and stands on its own when folded. However, keep in mind that is stands on the handlebar which may get dirty or rip if you put the stroller on rough ground. I like that the fold is pretty compact, especially for such a big jogger. It should fit in most of the car trunks. Folded Speed is smaller than BOB Revolution FLEX or Graco FastAction Fold.

Another feature, which may be a big advantage at least for some parents, is the eco-friendly fabric and lack of harmful chemicals on this stroller. You can read more about it on brand’s official website.

I also like the Bumbleride Speed seat which is softly padded and has single-lever recline. There is also vented backrest with a cover. Adjustable handlebar has 5 height settings and safety strap that you can put around your wrist. The canopy is large and goes pretty low, however I’m not sure it will cover the baby knees. It is made of material with UPF/SPF 45+ protection. There’s also peek-a-boo window that closes with magnets.

This jogging stroller has really spacious basket under the seat with a pouch for the tire pump. This bin should easily accommodate even large diaper bag. There are also few other storage pockets. On the back of the seat there is a mesh beverage holder, mesh pouch for small items and a zippered pocket for your phone and keys. Inside the seat there is a pocket for baby’s snacks or favorite toy.

Bumbleride Speed can be used with infant car seat

Bumbleride Speed has one more asset. The main seat can be detached and switched for an infant car seat. So when you add the car seat this stroller won’t get much heavier or bulkier (like when you attach the car seat to the regular seat).

This Bumbleride stroller is compatible with many car seat brands: Maxi Cosi, Cybex, Nuna, Graco and Chicco (adapters are sold separately). Thanks to that you can use it from birth as a car seat carrier (for strolls, not running).

There is one more feature that distinguished this jogging stroller from other models. It is compatible with a bassinet so it can be used since birth as a pram. Other joggers in this ranking don’t offer carrycots. Of course Bumbleride bassinet is sold separately.

This jogging stroller is not flawless. It’s really expensive but doesn’t include accessories (except for the tire pump). If you want to use it with infant car seat, you need to spend extra money on special adapter. Parent tray, travel bag or weather shield are also sold separately. It’s a bummer that Bumbleride Speed is so pricey and you still have to spend extra money on accessories that are a must-have.

Bumbleride Speed is very expensive, however it includes only a tire pump (other accessories are sold separately)

Let’s summarize. This stroller is high-quality, made of nice durable materials, looks really chic and the overall performance is admirable (thanks to versatile front wheel and good suspension). However, it is high-end product and when you add its price to that the price of necessary accessories you end up spending a fortune on a stroller! If you have big budget go for it, but if you have also other expenses there are other great joggers with similar features and more pocket-friendly price.

What other parents think

Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller doesn’t have many reviews on Amazon – it’s expensive so it’s not as popular as cheaper models. However it has only positive reviews (at least at the time I’m writing this ranking). Here are the features that parents mention.

ProsCons
  • Easy to steer – you don’t wheel the weight when you push it
  • Rolls smoothly even on gravel, grass and dirt trails, it even handles sandy beaches and mud
  • Changing the settings on the front wheel is very easy
  • Some parents use it not only for off-road jogging, but also as an everyday stroller
  • Fabrics are nice to the touch
  • Canopy gives full coverage
  • Feels light
  • Large storage space under the seat
  • Sturdy and high-quality – Customers agree it’s worth every penny
  • Folding takes some practice
  • Peek-a-boo window is placed on the top of the canopy (instead of the back of it) so shorter parents can’t see their child through it while pushing the stroller
  • No cup holder or snack tray included

Keep in mind

This jogging stroller is pricey. If you are thinking about buying it, make sure it meets your needs and check what other parents wrote about it on Amazon. You can also find there available discounts.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. Thanks to awesome wheels and suspension it can handle ANY type of terrain. No matter if you run, jog or walk.

2. It can be used from birth as car seat carrier so it can be really your only stroller.

3. It is made of top-quality materials and eco-friendly fabrics. It is an investment for years.

5. Graco Relay Jogging Stroller

Graco Relay Jogging Stroller
Graco Relay Jogging Stroller

This is another very popular and highly-rated jogging stroller in medium price range. It can be bought as a single stroller or travel system with SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat.

It has three wheels with pneumatic rubber tires, like many other models in this ranking. There is a lockable and pivoting front wheel with tracking. Together with the premium suspension system it provides very smooth ride over any type of terrain. The shocks make the stroller feel really light and easy to push on bumpy terrain, even with a heavy toddler.

The seat can accommodate a child up to 50 lbs and it has nice padding made of breathable fabrics. There is also a reflective piping so you and your child could stay visible even in low light.

Graco Relay can be also used as a travel system
Graco Relay can be also used as a travel system (without spending money on adapters!)

The canopy is made of all-weather UV50 fabric to protect your little one from harmful sun rays. It extends pretty far down to cover the baby down to the waist. There are side vents and a peek-a-boo window.

The handlebar is not adjustable, which is not a problem if you’re short or average in height.  However, this fixed height may be too low for very tall parents. There is a leash that prevents the stroller from getting away for you.

I like that this jogging stroller comes with accessories so parents don’t have to spend extra money on these items. What’s included with this jogger? There is a parent console with cup holder, zippered pouch and a storage for the phone. Keep in mind it is not a tray, but few fabric pockets. It allows parents to keep their essentials at hand, but the beverage holder is not stiff so it’s not suitable for open drinks (it can hold a small bottle of water though). There is also a belly bar with a beverage holder for baby’s sippy cup. This armrest bar is removable which makes getting baby in and out of the seat very easy.

Graco Relay Jogging Stroller - Storage Space
Graco Relay comes with a parent organizer that includes few storage pockets and beverage holder

Another great thing is that you can turn this jogging stroller into a travel system with all Graco Click Connect infant car seats, without any adapters! So you can save money on this item as well. However, it is not safe to run with a baby in a car seat, you should wait until your baby can use the regular seat and sit unassisted.

Under the seat there is pretty spacious basket where parents can fit medium-sized diaper bag. The whole stroller can hold up to 70 lbs, which means you can storage in the basket and parent console up to 20 lbs! The stroller itself weighs about 28 lbs which is a decent weight as for a jogging stroller.

Folding is very easy and quick – you just need to pull the strap in the middle of the seat and it will collapse down. It’s much more easier than in other model, for example BOB. I don’t like one thing – after folding the seat padding is on the outside, so you need to be careful when transporting the stroller in the car trunk because the fabrics can easily get dirty.

What other parents think

I checked this jogger stroller on Amazon and I must admit that – parents say many good things about it. It has over 270 reviews, including over 248 positive ones (at least at the moment of writing this ranking). In the table below you can check features they love and few minor drawbacks.

ProsCons
  • Easy to put together within 10 minutes
  • Includes accessories
  • Breeze to fold
  • Canopy provides decent coverage
  • Easy to push and steer even on snow
  • Rolls easily and provides cushioned ride
  • Gravel or curbs are not a problem
  • Thanks to suspension system baby doesn’t bounce around during parent’s jogging
  • Top-quality, durable
  • There’s possibility of using it from birth with Graco infant car seats without adapters
  • Difficult to access storage basket
  • A bit bulky for putting in and out of the car trunk, it may barely fit in a small trunk
  • Few parents complain this stroller pulls to one side, while others say it is a matter of adjustment (you can read more about this complaint in customer reviews on Amazon)
  • Unadjustable handlebar

Keep in mind

The valve on the front tire is a little bit tricky so depending on the tire pump it may be a bit difficult to inflate it.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. Thanks to included accessories you can actually save about $100!

2. Many parents say it is well-equipped like more expensive models (like BOB joggers), but it cost almost twice less.

3. It can be used not only as a jogger but can serve as primary stroller if you add one of the Graco Click Connect infant car seats – and you don’t even have to spend extra money on adapters.

6. Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller

Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller
Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller

This is very popular, medium price range jogging strollers. It’s lightweight, high-quality and easy to operate.

Like other running strollers it has 3-wheel design with 16 inches rear wheels and 12 inches front wheel which swivels for better maneuverability and can be locked for greater stability for running and strolling over uneven terrain.

There are pneumatic tires, so you need to remember about inflating them once in a while. What’s really great is that the bike pump is included with the stroller. There is a foot-operated parking brake that locks the rear wheels and safety strap for your wrist. Moreover, it has a shock absorbing suspension which makes this stroller jogger suitable even for dirt, unbeaten roads as it smoothes the bumps.

Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller 2018
This is one of the best strollers for running with a baby

What most of parents love about Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight is its lightweight aluminum frame. The whole stroller weighs only 25.7 lbs which is really little, especially for a jogger.

The multi-position recline seat can accommodate a passenger up to 75 lbs so you can be sure this stroller will serve you for a long time. There are mesh pockets inside the seat where you baby can keep some snacks or take-alongs. The canopy extends pretty far to give the baby nice protection from the sun and wind.

This running stroller can be also turned into a travel system with many car seat from major brands. Adapters are sold separately. Thanks to this function you can use Zoom 360 Ultralight from birth, however remember that you can start running with your baby from about 6 months when he can sit unassisted and hold his head up.

Another big advantage of Zoom 360 Ultralight is the storage space: it has large underseat basket and parent organizer (included!) so you can keep your phone and keys in safe, zippered pocket and two bottles of water (or sippy cup) at hand.

The best part is that this well-equipped running stroller has really reasonable price. These high-quality features put this jogger in line with high-end competing models.

Keep in mind that Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight comes in 4 color versions: Black, Red, Blueberry and Charcoal. Availability and price may vary for different colors. Before you decide to purchase this stroller make sure to compare prices for all color options. You can do it on Amazon.

At the moment of writing this review, Zoom 360 Ultralight has over 190 reviews on Amazon (including over 158 positive ones). Here are the main things that parents mention most often.

  • Good quality for low price
  • Big size
  • If you have a small car trunk or small apartment you may need to take off the wheels for more easy storage
  • No handbrake
  • The material is not very soft

Keep in mind

Although this stroller has high weight limit and can accommodate a heavy toddler or even preschooler, it’s not very comfy for taller kid.

The seat back is about 18″ high, there are extra 2″ of netting and there are few more inches to the top of the canopy, so it gives child plenty room to grow. However, if the child has longer torso (over 18″) you won’t be able to recline the seat.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. It’s light and makes pushing a breeze, even with older and heavier toddler.

2. Tire pump and parent organizer are included so you don’t have to spend extra money on these (essential) accessories.

3. It may serve you for several years and this is also a stroller for big kid. Some parents use it even for 5-year-old kids or older children with special needs.

7. Baby Jogger Summit X3 Jogging Stroller

Baby Jogger Summit X3
Baby Jogger Summit X3 Jogging Stroller

This is a good quality stroller in medium price range. Although it doesn’t perform as well as other running strollers, I decided to include it in my ranking because it has few features that other models don’t have.

It is a hybrid or jogging and everyday stroller. It has 3 wheels with air-filled rubber tires. Like in many other models the front wheel is smaller – 12’’, the rear ones are bigger – 16’’. There is also nice all-wheel suspension that soaks up the bumps during walking and running over uneven terrain. The stroller is easy to push and run with and it stays on the track.

Summit X3 allows for quick switching between strolling and running mode (swivel and locked position for the front wheel) thanks to remote wheel lock on the push bar. Other joggers require turning the wheel and using the knob on the front wheel with hand, to lock it. Here you don’t have to bend and get your hands dirty, this locking mechanism is really convenient.

Short turns are easy if the front wheel is in swivel mode, but when it’s locked it is more difficult to turn because of the longer wheelbase (however it handles sweeping turns). Summit X3 may be a bit bouncy when going over large curbs, so you need to be especially careful and help it a little bit.

Baby Jogger Summit X3 Jogging Stroller is perfect choice for parents who prefer light jogging

Moreover this running stroller has two breaks – foot-operated parking brake (the pedal is easy to use, however to release it you need to use the top of your foot so it’s not flip-flop friendly) and hand-operated rear drum brakes which allows you to fully control the speed and slow down at any time.

It’s very useful feature if you plan on running in hilly area. Many parents praise this stroller for having two brakes which is not very common at this price range! However, the handbrake may be hard to squeeze, especially at the beginning. There is also a safety leash.

There is a big 3-panel canopy with two peek-a-boo windows and side vents. The seat features infinite recline and goes down to about 20 degrees from the ground. It’s not safe to run with fully reclined seat, however it’s useful feature when a toddler wants to nap during a stroll. Moreover, the is a seat back vent which give even better air-flow.

Under the seat there is a capacious storage bin which can accommodate medium-size diaper bag. You can keep your belongings and a bottle of water in the mesh pocket on the back of the seat.

Baby Jogger Summit X3 - Recline Seat
Baby Jogger Summit X3 has really deep recline for comfy napping during strolls

What I don’t like about this stroller is the unadjustable handlebar – it can accommodate short or average parents (about 5’7’’), but it’s too low for tall parents.

Folding is fairly easy, especially for such a big stroller. Thanks to patented technology you can fold Summit X3 with one hand. Fold is not very compact and it will take a lot of space in the car trunk or at home.

What other parents think

Summit X3 Single Jogging Stroller doesn’t have many reviews on Amazon yet, however most of the current opinions are positive, at least at the time of writing this review. You can check if there are any new reviews on your own. Skip to Amazon and check customer reviews.

ProsCons
  • Can be used since birth (for strolling) with infant car seat – the adapter is very solid and sturdy
  • Very easy to push and maneuver
  • Strong and sturdy
  • Handbrake is useful if there are hills in your neighborhood
  • Works great on grass, gravel and other uneven surfaces
  • Mesh part of the canopy and seat provide nice ventilation
  • Folding and opening is a breeze
  • Bulky and heavy for regular stroller
  • Basket is hard to access
  • Takes a lot of space so storage and transport are not very easy (detaching wheels helps a little)
  • Peek-a-boo window is plastic

Keep in mind

Accessories for Baby Jogger Summit X3 are sold separately (for example parent console and adapters for infant car seat). Also, this stroller is not very comfortable for tall runners.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. Thanks to additional safety feature – handbrake, you control the speed better and you can be sure your child is well protected.

2. The overall quality is really excellent, especially for medium price range stroller.

3. Many parents wrote on Amazon that they bought it on a sale. Last time I checked there was even 29% discount on some color versions so the stroller was over $120 cheaper! I’m not sure if the sale is still on so you may want to check it on your own. Click here to check the current discounts.

8. Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller

Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller
Baby Trend Expedition

This is probably the best selling jogging stroller in a low price range. If you want to lose some weight and start jogging, but you’re on a small budget, this stroller is just for you.

This stroller weighs 27 lbs and has slim design (only 21 inches wide) which makes it suitable for regular, everyday use. Moreover, it has great features for parents convenience: large basket under the seat where you can easily fit a diaper bag and a parent console (included!) with two cup holders and covered compartment for your valuables.

Besides you can use it since infancy with a car seat (for strolling) and when your baby can sit unassisted you can start using the regular seat in the city or for more off-road trips.

The main seat can accommodate a child up to 50 lbs (it’s smaller capacity than in many other models) and up to 42 inches tall.  The seat is multi-position reclining and has vented top which can be used in fully reclined position – which is really deep and comfortable for napping during a stroll.

Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller also works as a travel system

The footrest is equipped with reflectors which keep you and your little passenger more visible in poor lighting. There is also a convenient child tray with two cup holders and a place for baby’s snacks. It’s really unusual for a stroller to have so many accessories included, especially at this price!

The canopy is unfortunately rather small – it has 2 panels and mesh sun visor and provides only decent shade. There is a mesh peek-a-boo window with Velcro closure and hook & loop for keeping it open. The whole sunshade can rotate forward to protect baby from low sun and wind. However it doesn’t cover baby’s knees and the protection on both sides is small.

It has 3-wheel design and bicycle tires which you need to inflate once in a while. Front wheels can be in swivel mode when you stroll, go over tight corners or jog slowly. You can also lock it for running and going over bumpy terrain. It rolls smoothly over grass and gravel and you can easily go over curbs without any bouncing. It’s easy to push and turn.

Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller Fold
This jogger is not the most compact one but you can detach the wheels for easier storage and transport

During running at high speed the stroller may pull to one side a little bit, but it’s easy to get it back on course. Moreover, there is no suspension. I would say this jogger stroller is not perfect for serious, advanced runners who like long distances. It’s rather for those you like to go for a short jogging session once in a while and would like to have regular and jogging stroller in one. Besides, the back rest is quite hard which makes this stroller definitely not suitable for long distances.

I wish the handlebar was adjustable, to make the stroller more comfortable also for shorter parents. The grip is rubberized so it’s pretty convenient to push and steer though. I don’t like the double-action brakes because to park the stroller both pedals need to be engaged. The material is also quite stiff and rough so the brakes are not sandal friendly.

Folding is a breeze – you just need to pull a trigger and the stroller collapses down easily. It’s not the smallest fold, but you can take off the wheels to make storing and transporting more simple.

What other parents think

I check this jogging stroller on Amazon, as I always do. At the time of writing this ranking, it has over 1025 reviews (including over 847 positive ones)! It’s unbelievable result! Here are the features that parents mention most often.

ProsCons
  • Quick assembly
  • Breeze to push
  • The ride is smooth
  • Large storage basket that can accommodate mom’s handbag and baby’s backpack
  • Great parent and child trays included
  • Canopy can rotate up and down, depending on the position of the sun (however it leaves the top of baby’s head exposed)
  • According to many parents it’s nothing fancy, but it is all-terrain
  • Folding in not one-hand and for some parents the trigger is difficult to pull
  • You need to use two pedals for locking the stroller
  • Takes a lot of space after folding
  • Small footrest
  • Few parents complain about wheels quality (find out more about it here)

Keep in mind

Lack of the suspension, hard seat back and unadjustable push bar make this stroller rather for short-distance jogging than serious long-distances running. However, it can serve you as an everyday stroller, plus it handles strolling over uneven terrain really well.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. It’s a good jogging stroller for beginners and those who prefer slow and short jogging sessions or off-road strolls.

2. It’s the most cheap (and good-quality) stroller available on the market. You can find the best price on Amazon.

3. It comes with accessories like parent and child tray with cup holder. Moreover, it is a combination of a regular and jogging stroller so it can be your only stroller. So there’s nothing more to buy and you can save money!

9. Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Stroller

Graco FastAction Fold
Graco FastAction Fold

This is one of the cheapest jogging strollers which I can recommend especially for beginners. Although it has few drawbacks (like greater weight) it is highly rated by other parents and very popular stroller in low price range.

First of all, it can be a perfect option for parents who want a stroller that is not only for jogging. This model can be used since birth as a travel system with all Graco Click Connect infant car seats – and you won’t need any adapters for it. Keep in mind you can only stroll with the infant car seat attached, not run.

The main seat can hold a child up to 50 lbs and it is 12’’ wide. It has 4-position recline to provide comfortable place for naps during strolls.

The canopy isn’t the biggest one and provides only decent shade, but I like the side mesh parts that provide extra air-flow. There’s also a peek-a-boo window so parent can check on their little passenger whenever they want.

This jogger stroller has 3-wheel design with 11’’ front wheel and 16’’ rear ones. Front wheel swivels and can be lock so you can easily switch from daily strolling (better maneuverability, easier turning) to jogging (added stability). The tires are rubber and filled with air and they cushion the ride. However there is no typical suspension system in this jogging stroller so it’s more suitable for shorter distances and slow jogging than serious running.

Graco FastAction Fold Jogging Stroller is perfect choice for parents who like all-terrain walks and jog once in a while
Graco FastAction Fold Jogging Stroller is perfect choice for parents who like all-terrain walks and jog once in a while

This stroller has two-action brakes which means you need to press two pedals to lock the stroller. There is one more safety feature – strap for runners wrist.

Graco FastAction Fold Jogger is heavier than many other models in this ranking – it weighs 30 lbs so putting it in and out of the car trunk frequently or carrying up and down the stairs may be challenging. It is also rather big (40 x 40 x 24 inches) and takes a lot of space even when folded (15.3 x 39 x 23.6 inches) so it may not fit in every car trunk. Some parents complain they have to take off the wheels every time they want to squeeze this stroller into the car trunk which is annoying, especially when the tires are dirty.

However there’s one good thing about folding – it’s super simple and quick. You just need to pull the strap on the regular seat and it can be done with one hand.

Another advantage of this jogging stroller is parent tray included in the price. It has 2 deep beverage holders, smartphone holder and a covered compartment so you can keep all of your essentials within reach.

There is also a child tray with two cup holders – perfect for sippy cup and bottle of water and a place for child’s snacks. This tray is pivoting and removable so you could easily take your baby in and out of the seat.

Underneath the seat there’s a capacious storage basket where parents can fit their medium or even large diaper bag. I also like that this jogging stroller has reflectors on wheels and child tray that keep parent and baby more visible in low light. Not bad equipment for such a cheap jogging stroller.

What other parents think

Last time I checked this jogger on Amazon it has over 397 reviews and most of them were 5-stars. Here are the thinks that parents like the most and few drawbacks they mention.

ProsCons
  • Great for walks over uneven terrain, rolls smoothly
  • Easy to push even with heavy toddler in it
  • Quick one-hand fold
  • Self-standing when folded
  • Trays with cup holders included
  • Easy to use with infant car seat which securely attaches to the stroller
  • Sturdy and good-quality
  • Cheap
  • Big even when folded – may not fit in the trunk or you’ll need to take off the wheels
  • Heavy and difficult to carry around
  • Handlebar is not adjustable and may not be comfortable for shorter parents (below 5’6’’)
  • Canopy could be a bit longer
  • Upright position is still reclined
  • Phone storage is small and doesn’t fit modern smartphone (for example iPhone 6) – read more about it in customer reviews

Keep in mind

This jogging stroller is better for slow and short-distance jogging or strolling over gravel and grass than off-road running. Moreover it comes in three colors that have different prices. You can compare it on Amazon by clicking here.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. This stroller is pocket-friendly and includes parent and child trays so it’s perfect option for parents on a small budget.

2. It can be your only stroller if you add an infant car seat for the first few months.

3. It has additional safety features like reflectors to keep you and your passenger visible and safe during early morning and evening strolls.

10. BOB Ironman Jogging Stroller

BOB Ironman Jogging Stroller
BOB Ironman Jogging Stroller

This is a medium price range jogging stroller for avid runners. Do you run marathons or triathlons? Or maybe you want to continue your daily outdoor workouts with your baby? BOB Ironman will meet your needs.

It has few similar features like other BOB joggers, but also few completely different functions.

There are three 16’’ wheels with air-filled tires. The front wheels has the same size like the rear ones and it is fixed to provide better stability during your speed training or jogging session. Moreover, the rear wheels fit the rear axle firmly so they don’t wobble at speed. There’s adjustable tracking on the front wheel so it’s also easy to keep it moving straight and it doesn’t veer off the course.

This stroller is not only equipped with a foot-operated parking brake, but also has handbrake which allows you to control the speed better, especially when you’re going downhill. This deceleration brake works really great. Ironman also has safety wrist strap. There’s also amazing suspension which can be adjusted, depending on the terrain you’re rolling over and the weight of your passenger.

Turning is not very easy, because the front wheel doesn’t swivel and the wheelbase is really long. Moreover, the wheels are very similar to bike tires so they are rather design for pavement. But because it has less tread it works less impressive as off-road vehicle. It handles gravel and bumps and parents won’t have problem with controlling it, however the baby may be bouncing around a bit.

BOB Ironman is a great choice for parents training for marathons

Like other jogging strollers from BOB, this one also has 9-position handlebar which adjust for parents of all heights (it can literally accommodate very short, average in height and very tall person). Keep in mind, that only the newest model from 2016 has adjustable push bar, previous model from 2015 had fixed handlebar.

The seat features multi-position recline and you can adjust the back rest position using one hand. There’s also oversized canopy which covers the baby down to the knees, however I don’t like that it wrinkles sometimes.

Under the seat there’s a big storage bin which can hold a large diaper bag, but it’s not as easy to access as I’d wish it was.

BOB Ironman 2016 can be also used as a travel system as it is compatible with few infant car seats. However I wouldn’t recommend running with a car seat, it’s safer to wait until the baby can use the regular seat and sit up.

This jogging stroller weighs 27 lbs which is a decent weight. It is however big and long so it’s rather not suitable for everyday use or going to the grocery store. Unfortunately it’s also still bulky when folded (24 x 38 x 24 inches) and without removing the wheels it may be impossible to transport in the car trunk.

What other parents think

I check what other parents wrote about this stroller on Amazon. It doesn’t have many reviews, but the ones it has are positive. If you want to check the customer reviews on your own just click here.

ProsCons
  • Adjustable handlebar
  • Roll like a breeze and it’s perfect for running with
  • Works better for higher speeds (but on more smooth surfaces)
  • Many parents use it for training to marathon
  • Canopy almost completely covers the baby
  • Handbrake is nice to have as it gives better control over speed
  • Durable materials
  • Lots of storage space (underseat bin, seat back pocket, mesh pockets inside the seat)
  • Basket under the seat doesn’t have a cover or zippered top
  • It can handle average bumps or rocks, but it’s not suitable for more than that
  • Not great for taking to the mall

Keep in mind

It’s too big to take it for shopping and it will shake a little bit on bigger bumps.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. This stroller is design for advanced runners who like to train on pavement or even gravel paths.

2. It’s perfect for those who train for the marathon because Ironman wheels are built for speed.

3. Thanks to foot-operated parking brake and a well-functioning, reliable deceleration handbrake you have the full control over the speed and you can slow down or stop at any time during your workout.

This stroller is also available in a double version. You can see its price on Amazon (manufacturer recommend this seller on the official website).

5 Best Double Running Strollers for 2018

Finding time for physical activity is especially difficult when you have more kids. To be honest, when our twins came into this World, I was afraid I would have to give up jogging for a long time. Double running stroller was a lifesaver for me. 🙂

Are you a parent of twins or kids of different age and you love jogging as well? I’ve got something for you!

1. Thule Urban Glide Double Jogging Stroller

Thule Urban Glide Double Jogging Stroller 2018
Thule Urban Glide Double Jogging Stroller

This is the most lightweight double running stroller in this ranking which makes using and storing a bit more easy.

Its construction is similar to the single version. Front wheels swivels which makes the stroller more agile and can be also locked for increased stability during running. There is rear suspension that absorbs shocks and provides comfortable ride.

Thanks to adjustable rotating handlebar parents of different heights can find comfortable position for themselves (from 35.5’’ to 44’’ from the ground). The is also an additional brake on the handlebar which allows parent to control the speed when going over bumpy or steep terrain. There is also foot-operated parking brake and a safety strap.

Just like the singe version, this double model has large canopies that go really far down. Each has a peek-a-boo window with magnetic closure so you can always check on your passengers without disturbing them. Canopies extend separately and stay in place firmly. Seats are nicely padded, harness strap also have softly padded covers (even the waist straps!). There is also one-handed deep recline. All to provide the most comfortable ride for kids.

Thule Urban Glide Double Jogging Stroller - Padded seats
I love how softly the seat padding is!

I like that this stroller is fairly light (as for such a big, heavy-duty vehicle) – weighs 32 lbs and it also features one-handed compact fold. If you also take off the wheels, which is a piece of cake, Thule Urban Glide Double really doesn’t take up much space.

I love Thule storage baskets. This double running stroller has capacious bin that is zippered with water resistant cover. Your belongings are securely hidden, protected from falling out and getting wet. There are also mesh pockets on the back of the seat and inside each seat (for baby’s toys, snacks or pacifiers).

Thule Urban Glide Double Jogging Stroller accepts one infant car seat, however the adapter is sold separately – just like the rest of the accessories.

Thule Urban Glide Double can be also used with one infant car seat

Psst! Thule is also releasing upgraded version of this stroller for 2018. Here are few new features: completely different twist handbrake and side vents on each canopy. Thule Urban Glide Double 2.0 is however a bit heavier and the price will be around $30-$40 higher. You can already check this new model on Amazon and pre-order it!

What other parents think

Thule Urban Glide Double is quite popular and highly rated by other parents on Amazon. Here are the main assets and drawbacks that customers mention.

ProsCons
  • Easy and quick setup
  • It feels very light to push and turns on a dime even when fully loaded
  • Easy to maneuver even with two kids of different age and size
  • Suspension cushions the ride and allows children to nap even on cracked pavement
  • Harness is much more comfortable than in other strollers and difficult to open for kids
  • Big canopies completely block the sun
  • Fits through normal doorways
  • It’s easy to fold the stroller and detach the wheels – it fits in most of the car trunks then
  • Large storage space – enough for day trips
  • Lifetime warranty on the frame
  • Pretty shallow seats
  • May tip over when you use it with only one child
  • Not suitable for tall kids
  • Doesn’t have good spots to grab it and lift it to the

Keep in mind

Thule Urban Glide Double is available in three different colors and last time I check it on Amazon each version had different price (for example the red version was over $200 cheaper!). Make sure to check the current discounts and compare all prices – you can do it by clicking here.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. Thanks to very long canopies with vented parts children are well protected from the sun rays and overheating at the same time.

2. It has probably the best storage space among double joggers – it’s huge and closed with a zippered cover. You will be able to fit all of your stuff even for a day trip to the zoo and it will be well protected.

3. It gives parents ability to go wherever they want – it handles all types of city terrain, cobblestone, cracked sidewalks, high curbs, muddy trails, grass and snow.

2. BOB Revolution PRO Duallie

BOB Revolution PRO Double Jogging Stroller
BOB Revolution PRO Duallie

This is probably the most expensive double jogging stroller on the market right now. It’s also very popular among active parents and its functionality is highly rated.

This jogger has almost the same features like the single version and other BOB jogging strollers. It has three wheels with pumped tires, front one is 12’’, rear ones are 16’’. Front wheel has two settings: it can swivel which increases strollers maneuverability and makes turning more easy (it can be used for walks and strolls over even terrain) or it can be locked which adds stability (you should use this setting for running and off-road strolling).

Big advantage of this stroller is state of the art suspension system which can be adjusted to babies weight and type of the terrain you’re jogging/walking on.

I like that this model has not only parking brake operated by foot, but also a wrist strap and a handbrake which allows parent to slow down whenever they want. The most important thing is that this brake really works the way it should. It’s very useful feature for parents who like to hike or jog on hilly terrain.

I think that handbrake is a must have, especially in double strollers. I can’t even imagine running with such a big and heavy stroller with two toddlers without this brake! Controlling this beast would be really hard with handbrake, especially if you’re petite woman like me.

BOB Revolution PRO Duallie

Thanks to large, air-filled tires, suspension system and two brakes you can jog with this stroller wherever you want and it won’t let you down. It will be easy to push for you and your children won’t get bumped around even on gravel, grass, wooded paths or unbeaten roads. You can even take it to the beach. Thanks to smooth, cushioned ride, you can do your workouts and be sure your kids are protected from back pain and spinal diseases.

This running stroller has few features that increase parent’s comfort of using. First of all there is adjustable handlebar which rotates from 33.5’’ to 50.5’’ from the ground. Even very short and very tall parents can find comfortable height.

Another feature that makes this stroller convenient for parents is capacious storage bin under the seats. It can even accommodate two diapers bag or few shopping bags. I know how much stuff you need to take when you go out with two kids and I can tell you one thing: with this basket you will be able to take anything you may need during jogging session or a day trip.

I also like that seats and canopies adjust individually. It means that one child can lay on the reclined seat while the other is sitting upright. Recline mechanism is one-handed and when the seat is in lowest position you can use mesh vented top (or close it with a cover). Canopies also extend separately. Each has large peek-a-boo window. BOB Revolution PRO Duallie can accommodate one infant car seat (adapters sold separately).

As you can see this running stroller is a great option for parents who have kids of different age (for example an infant and a toddler).

Here are the main thing I don’t like (and other parents also complain about): folding is 2-step process which is a bit more difficult than in other strollers. Of course this double jogging stroller is big even when folded and many parents remove the wheels to fit it in the car trunk.

Moreover this jogger is really pricey but it doesn’t include any accessories, which is ridiculous! You need to spend extra money on infant car seat adapter, parent console, child trays… It doesn’t even include tire pump! It’s a bummer that these must-have items are sold separately.

What other parents think

Of course I checked customers reviews on Amazon. At the time of writing this ranking it has over 40 reviews, including over 35 positive ones. Here are the assets and flaws they mention.

ProsCons
  • Very quick assembly
  • Easy to push and navigate, turns on a dime
  • Glides smoothly even on rough terrain, when you’re moving at speed
  • Handbrake allow to slow down when going downhill and console this large stroller
  • Storage basket can accommodate a lot of stuff
  • Adjustable handlebar – perfect for parents of different height
  • Roomy canopies
  • The most upright position is really nice for curious toddlers
  • Simple, one-handed back rest adjustment
  • Parking brake is flip flop friendly
  • Well-built, made of durable, high-quality materials
  • Fits through doorways easily
  • Comfortable seats, can accommodate even a tall toddler (some parents use it even for a 4-year-old kids)
  • Fabric on the canopies is a bit flimsy
  • Shocks need to be adjusted each time you use this stroller (there is no lock to keep the previous settings)
  • Some parents complain about the quality of the handlebar foam cover (you can read more about it in customer reviews on Amazon)
  • Pricey accessories

Keep in mind

This stroller is heavy (36 lbs) and big – it is understandable because it has to be strong to hold even 100 lbs. However it can be difficult to put in the car trunk or it may even not fit in it (if you have small car). Moreover, if you use it with an infant car seat or with fully reclined seats you should not use it for running, only for jogging. It’s more safe to start running when the baby is at least 6 months old and can sit unassisted in the regular seat in more upright position.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. This is one of the best jogging strollers for twins. Since it is really well balanced it can be also used for running with an infant and toddler.

2. Although it’s heavy and can accommodate two heavy kids, it’s super easy to navigate, turn and control.

3. According to many parents who have used this stroller, it’s totally worth the money (considering its quality and performance).

If you like this stroller and want to read more about its features and performance check out my full review of BOB PRO Duallie.

There is also similar model – BOB Revolution FLEX Duallie, which has the same features, except for the handbrake. This stroller is 3 lbs lighter and also a bit cheaper than PRO version. Here’s my full review of FLEX Duallie or you can just skip to Amazon and compare prices for both models.

3. Baby Jogger Summit X3 Double Jogging Stroller

Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double Jogging Stroller
Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double

This is another great running stroller for parents of twins or two kids of different age. It has similar features to BOB Revolution PRO Duallie, but it is a bit cheaper.

There are 16’’ rear wheels and 12’’ front one which can swivel or lock. Just like in the single version of this stroller switching between pivoting and locked wheel is very convenient, because you just need to use remote lock mounted on the handlebar. You don’t have to touch the dirty, muddy wheel, here you just flip or release lever. Thanks to this feature you can quickly and easily switch between walking and running mode.

Summit X3 Double Jogging Stroller has also all-wheel suspension system that cushions the ride over bumps.

I like that this stroller has two breaks – foot-operated parking brake (unfortunately not flip flop friendly) and hand-operated rear drum brakes. Thanks to the additional handbrake you can not only control the speed when you going downhill or running on uneven ground, but it gives you better control over the whole stroller which weighs 37 lbs!

Baby Jogger Summit X3 Double Jogger Stroller
Baby Jogger Summit X3 Double is perfect for jogging with twins or kids of similar age

Without the handbrake controlling this beast (with two kids) would be really difficult, especially if you like run on tough terrain. Good thing is that this double running stroller has also a wrist safety tether.

Each seat reclines individually which is very useful if you have an infant who likes to nap during strolls and a curious toddler who likes to sit more upright. When the seat is fully reclined there is a vented top – very useful for summer strolls.

Canopies also adjust separately. I like how far they go and cover the babies down to their knees. There are two peek-a-boo windows on each sunshade and side vents. Handlebar is not adjustable.

Many parents worry that a double stroller would be very hard to fold and they would struggle with it every time they want to put it in the car trunk. Thanks to Baby Jogger patented technology folding is super easy and can be done with one hand. After folding is takes up a decent space: 34.25 x 32.5 x 15.35 inches, good thing is that it’s pretty slim.

I don’t like that the access to storage basket is blocked by the bar in the middle. This bin is really spacious and can easily accommodate large diaper bag and few other things, but taking it in and out is a struggle. Fortunately there are mesh pockets on the back of the seats where you can keep your essentials at hand.

Just like the BOB PRO Duallie, this pricey jogger doesn’t include any accessories either. You need to be prepared that adding parent console or trays for your children will cost extra.

What other parents think

I checked this double running stroller on Amazon to find out what other customers say about it. It doesn’t have many reviews yet, but most of the current opinions are positive.

ProsCons
  • Sturdy and long canopies
  • One-step fold (much easier than folding BOB)
  • More durable, rubberized handlebar
  • Handbrake that gives better control over the stroller
  • Comfortable, deep seats with one-hand, near-flat recline
  • Locking the wheel doesn’t require touch it (so you keep your hand clean)
  • Solid-built
  • While pushing you don’t even notice how heavy it is
  • Some parents use this stroller even for 4.5-year-old kids
  • Smooth and convenient for long-distance running even on grass and dirt roads, with two kids of different weight
  • Seats are divided with a bar – it prevents sagging in the middle and it helps to deal with two kids of different age 🙂
  • Heavy to lift to the car trunk
  • Foot brake is hard to use in flip flops or sandals
  • Adding accessories may be pricey
  • Storage bin is not easily accessible
  • Car seat adapters are not available for this model

Baby Jogger Summit X3 Double Jogging Stroller is not compatible with infant car seat (it doesn’t even accept one car seat), so it cannot be used since birth even for walking. You can only use it when your babies (twins or kids of similar age) can sit and hold their heads up unassisted.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. The seats are very roomy and deep which makes them suitable for older kids. You can be sure this jogging stroller will serve you for years.

2. It works great not only for twins but also as a running stroller for infant and toddler. And thanks to a bar between seats, one baby can nap without being disturb by the other kid.

3. Last time I checked on Amazon this stroller was sold about $130 cheaper! I’m not sure if this offer is still available so better check the current price on your own here.

4. Baby Trend Expedition Double Jogger Stroller

This is the cheapest double jogging stroller on the market, yet it is still pretty well equipped and performs good enough to recommend it for joggers.

As you may expect double jogging stroller at such a low price can’t have all features that more expensive models have. It lacks few functions and has some drawback, however it still can be a great choice especially for beginners or parents who only jog sometimes and on short distances.

It has three-wheel design with pneumatic bicycle tires. Front wheel can swivel or lock, depending on the terrain you’re going over and if you use this stroller for walking or jogging. There is a safety leash to prevent this jogger from running away from you.

Each seat reclines separately and has vented top. I don’t like that harnesses are not padded at all. There is large easy to clean footrest with reflectors on each sides for better visibility in low-light.

Now let’s talk about the unique features and advantages of this stroller.

It comes with a parents tray that has two cup holders and closed storage compartment – it’s something that the high-end products lack. Moreover it has MP3 speakers plug-in in the parent tray – it’s compatible with iPod and iPhone and other popular MP3 players. We all know that exercising with music is much more pleasant! Keep in mind that not all color versions have speakers. If this feature is important for you and you’re thinking about buying this stroller, here is the model that includes this accessory.

I also like the storage space in this jogging stroller. Under the seats there is a big basket divided into two parts. I would prefer one big bin, but these two compartments are also very capacious and can hold a big diaper bag and few other mom’s stuff. On the back of each seat there’s a useful pouch were parents can keep their essentials within reach.

Manufacturer also added mesh pockets inside the seats – little passengers can keep there their sippy cups, snacks or pacifiers.

Now it’s time for the drawbacks. In my opinion this double jogging stroller has three main disadvantages. First of all, it has one canopy for both seats. I prefer double strollers with two separate canopies, because very often when one baby wants to lay back and nap (or just relax), the other one want to explore surroundings and doesn’t want to be covered with the canopy all the way down, because it would block his view.

Baby Jogger Expedition Double has ratcheting canopy – it’s rather small however it rotates forward to protect babies from low sun. There is one central peek-a-boo window with Velcro closure.

Another drawback is the lack of handbrake. This is a big stroller, it weighs about 32.5 lbs and if we add to that both children’s weight it is a quite a beast to control. Without the handbrake this jogger is definitely not suitable for hilly terrain and it may be more difficult to control on uneven terrain and at higher speed.

And the biggest flaw for me is lack of suspension system. Fortunately this stroller has large pneumatic tires so it is suitable for harsher terrain, but only if you walk or jog on slow pace and short distances. It doesn’t cushion the ride and doesn’t soak up bumps like Thule or BOB joggers. Therefore this stroller is designed not for avid runners who like long distances and high speed, but rather for beginners or parents who want a stroller mainly for walking and only occasional jogging.

This model has also unadjustable handlebar, however I checked customers reviews on Amazon and other parents don’t complain about it.

What other parents think

This stroller has a lot of customer reviews on Amazon. Different color versions altogether have over 390 reviews (and most of them are positive)! It is not a surprise this double jogger is so popular – it’s cheap and has many useful features. Here are the main assets and flaws that parents mention.

ProsCons
  • Easy and quick assembling
  • Speakers are nice addition
  • Includes useful parent console
  • Good-quality wheels, can handle uneven trail
  • Smooth maneuverability (turns on a dime when front wheels is pivoting)
  • Light to push even when fully loaded (one parent even use it for kids who together weigh almost 90 lbs!)
  • Few parents mention they use it for 4 or even 5-year-old kids
  • Works for kids of different age
  • Easy to fold – you just pull triggers
  • Moving sunshade is useful for windy and sunny days
  • Low-budget option
  • Doesn’t fit through some doorways
  • Few parents complain about wobbly front wheel
  • May not fit in small car trunk
  • There’s small support in the middle so sometimes passengers roll together in the middle
  • No suspension that would absorb shocks on bumpy ground

Keep in mind

To sum up, this stroller is not so well-equipped and doesn’t perform so well for serious running like BOB or Thule joggers, however it is over 3 times cheaper than these high-end models! So compared with more expensive models Expedition performance is poorer, but when we consider it is a low price range double jogger it is satisfying.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. If you need a stroller for all-terrain strolls and occasional light jogging, but you’re on a small budget, this model it perfect for you.

2. It includes parent tray (and some color versions also come with speakers) so you don’t have to spend extra money on this item. Even high-end models don’t include parent tray!

3. It is nicely balanced so it is not only jogger for twins, but also kids of different age and size.

5. Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller

This low-budget double jogging stroller has few features that are very rare among joggers. It is 4-wheel construction, can accommodate two infant car seats and has MP3 speakers!

3-wheel design is typical for running strollers, however this model has 4 wheels with pneumatic bicycle tires. Front wheels are pivoting which is perfect when you use this stroller for walking. Swivel front wheels make turning and steering more easy. You can also lock them for jogging and strolling over rough, uneven terrain.

Another feature than other jogging strollers don’t have is possibility of adding TWO Baby Trend infant Car Seats. So you can use this stroller for newborn twins, stroll with it from birth and when the kids can sit unassisted in regular seats you can start jogging with them. Baby Trend Navigator Double is one of the best twin jogging strollers.

The main seats feature individual multi-position recline. I like the soft padding, however I’d wish the harness also had padded covers because the straps may be a bit harsh for baby’s delicate skin. Each seat has also vented top.

Individually adjustable canopies are rather small, however many parents like that they can rotate forward and cover children from low sun and wind.

Folding is fairly easy, you just need to pull triggers, that’s it. After folding Baby Trend Navigator Double still takes a lot of space, however it is typical for double joggers.

I like that this stroller includes parent tray with two cup holders and small storage compartment. There are also twin child trays with holders for sippy cups and children’s snacks. This double jogger has also MP3 speakers so you can listen to your favorite music while doing your workout and jogging session.

Under the seats there are two storage baskets – I would prefer one large bin, but these two are also fairly spacious and can accommodate lots of parents’ stuff.

As you can see this low budget stroller has many awesome features. However there are two things that I don’t like. It doesn’t have suspension – so it’s rather not suitable for long-distance serious running. It works better for slow jogging and long all-terrain walks.

Also it’s a bummer it doesn’t have a handbrake, because it is very heavy (43 lbs) and controlling it on uneven or hilly ground is pretty difficult, especially when you jog with heavy toddlers. I wouldn’t recommend it for jogging downhill or very difficult terrain. Good thing is that is has nice parking brake operated by foot (not flip flop friendly) and a strap for runners wrist.

What other parents think

This is one of the most popular and best-selling double jogging strollers on the market. It has over 270 reviews on Amazon (at least at the moment of writing this review). Here are the advantages and disadvantages, based on customer reviews.

ProsCons
  • Canopy rotates up and down to cover baby depending on the position of the sun
  • Sturdy construction
  • Rolls well on sidewalks, grass and gravel
  • Speakers are a nice touch
  • Great quality for low price
  • Works amazing for outdoor workouts on and off pavement
  • Stable and balanced even when walking and jogging with two kids of different weight
  • Some parents take it sometimes for shopping in the mall
  • Big and heavy but it is a double jogger and it can hold two car seats
  • The most upright position is still a bit reclined
  • Some parents complain the front wheel wobbles when they’re moving at speed (you can learn more about it in customer reviews)
  • May not fit through all doorways (or it does very tightly)

Keep in mind

Big pneumatic tires cushion the ride, but it is not as smooth as it would be with a typical suspension system.

3 Reasons Why You Will Love This Jogging Stroller

1. This is probably the only reliable double jogging stroller that can accommodate two infant car seats. So you can really use it since birth (for walking) as a stroller for twin newborns and from 6 month start using it for jogging.

2. It works not only for twins, but it is also great jogging stroller for infant and toddler or toddler and preschooler.

3. It’s a low-budget option and in addition it comes with accessories: parent console, children trays and MP3 speakers. It’s really awesome that you get those items at such a low price and don’t have to pay extra for them.

Best Jogging Strollers – Buying Guide

Bumbleride Speed - Best Jogging Strollers 2018 Buying Guide

Jogging with an infant?

When our daughter came into the world, we knew we wanted to encourage her from an early age to physical activity. And the most important: we wanted to spend with her as much time as we could, but without giving up or sacrificing our passion.

To do that we needed a stoller we could run with. And when Haley was born we made a decision: we are buying a jogging stroller.

We knew a lot about jogging, but not about jogging strollers. We did a lot of research, read many reviews and tested couple of models. After few months we finally found the right jogger for us.

For us, as for any other parents the most important thing is our baby’s safety and comfort, which is gaining importance especially during strolling and running together.

We also know that the stroller specification won’t tell you everything. The most important is baby’s safety and how the jogging stroller works on different terrains.

Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to give up jogging!

If you want to find out how to choose a jogger, I invite you to read my buying guide and jogging strollers reviews. And if you ever get lost in the world of joggers, let me know and I will try my best to help you!

The most important joggers’ features

Buying a standard stroller requires careful reflection on what we really need and what features will meet our expectations.

When we are looking for a jogger the task is even harder, because we will be running, so the baby will be exposed to more bumps and shocks than during a stroll. We have to find super-safety and comfy vehicle so our little one could join us during running!

Wheels

Most of the joggers has three wheels with pumped tires. Thanks to large and “bicycle” wheels joggers handle any type of terrain.

Besides, usually they absorb shocks very well, so the passenger doesn’t get bumped, even during riding over the tough ground.

Air-filled tires requires regular pumping. Don’t worry! It’s easy and you can use a standard bike pump to do that.

Suspension

Many strollers for jogging have special suspension system. BOB Revolution joggers have THE BEST suspension I have even seen and tried.

They provide such a smooth and comfortable ride, that my kids always fall asleep, no matter if I’m running on grass, beach or bumpy county roads!

I know that some parents go for a bumpy ride to get their baby fall asleep. However, remember that babies have delicate spin and head, and strong shocks aren’t good for them in any way! That’s why the proper suspension absorbing shocks is such an important features in joggers.

Brakes

Another feature that we should look for when buying jogger is handbrake. Parking brake is a standard, but hand-operated brake is pretty unusual, so I find it a big advantage.

Having a hand brake is very useful especially if we often run through hilly area. This brake gives you more control on the speed during jogging down the hill.

Of course not every jogger has an additional, hand-operated brake. For me this is one of the most important thing in strollers designed for running. But that’s my opinion because I’m a big fan of off-road jogging over hilly terrain.

Hand-operated brake – very useful during running down the hill

Remember that joggers are designed for running, so the most important is yours and your baby comfort and safety.

Safety strap

This is additional safety feature that most of the jogging strollers have. The strap (leash) is attached to the handlebar and you can put it on your wrist. It prevents the stroller from getting away from you. Safety tether is a must-have for parents who like to jog downhill and at high speed.

Size

I know that most of the joggers is bulky and heavy, which often makes them not suitable for shopping or using public transportation. But this is not their purpose. 🙂

Usually jogger are pretty big, even after folding. They often weighs around 25-35 lbs which can be quite a lot for some women, especially if you have to bring the stroller up the stairs every time. You should keep that in mind, if you had or will have a C-section.

Infant car seat compatibility

Another important thing – we can run with our babies when they have proper neck and head control and can sit up. Before that we can still use the jogger for strolling but only with an infant car seat.

4 thoughts on “Best Jogging Strollers For 2018

  1. HI Zoey,

    I have a 4 year old and having my second child in January. I was hoping to buy a jogging stroller for around 200$ which I see they have one at Babies r us but looks like they are not adaptable to baby seats. What do you suggest?

    1. Hi Kasia,
      To be honest, there are not many good double jogging strollers at this price, especially those that could accommodate 4-year-old child. Unfortunately this type of stroller is rather expensive. I can recommend you Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger, it’s suitable for older kids and you can attach an infant car seat for your newborns as well. It costs about $220 on Amazon. It’s a good quality for low price.
      There are also two other double jogging strollers: BOB Revolution PRO Duallie and Thule Urban Glide Double. These are absolutely the best two strollers in this category, however they are much more expensive (BOB is about $700 and Thule costs about $550 on Amazon).
      I’m sure that it would be easier to find single jogger for $200 so maybe it’s worth to consider if you really need a double stroller. 🙂
      If you have more questions, I’m here to help. Take care! 🙂

  2. Hello,

    I am curious if you have tried the Thule Urban Glide – Double and, if so, how it compares. It also receives some very good reviews and apparently there is a new version arriving soon (Amazon has a pre-order option for the Thule Urban Glide 2 – Double).

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Ron! I’m preparing my new ranking of the best joggers for 2018 and writing review of Thule Urban Glide Double right now – I will post it tomorrow so stay tuned 🙂
      It is an awesome stroller, definitely great choice if you’re a serious runner. It has useful handbrake so you could control it during running – when you add the weight of the stroller and weight of two kids it is a “beast” to control 🙂 However, it is one of the lightest double joggers. It has also great suspension that soaks up bumps and it really feels light to push and turn even with two toddlers.
      I love the padding on the seats and harnesses (it’s super soft, one of the most comfortable among joggers). And the canopies! They extend far down and cover babies knees. But keep in mind, this stroller is not suitable for tall kids (I would say it will last 3 or 3.5 years).

      I saw that Thule is releasing 2.0 model and there is pre-order on Amazon, however I’m not sure if this new version is going to be better than the current one. 2.0 model is heavier – about 2 lbs – it may seem a little, but if you are going to put this stroller in and out of the car trunk frequently, these 2 lbs really matter 🙂 The handbrake is also different in 2.0 model, not like a bicycle handbrake but it’s a twist brake. I’m not sure if it’s convenient to use. And the price is about $40 higher.

      So actually I would even recommend you the current model. I also checked today and the red version is over $200 cheaper which is really great deal for such a “heavy-duty” and well equipped stroller. Here is the discount, however I’m not sure how long it will be available.

      Let me know if you have more questions, take care 🙂
