If you want a solid, high-quality jogging stroller, but still like the convenience of being able to use it for non-jogging purposes, the BOB Revolution is an excellent choice. You can unlock the swiveling front wheel to easily navigate around tight corners and shopping aisles, or lock the front wheel forward for jogging. What really sets this jogging stroller apart from the others is the three inches of suspension and on/off-road tires, which give the child a smooth, comfortable ride.
If you're a serious runner and plan to log lots of miles with your little one, the Baby Jogger Performance Single is the jogging stroller for you. This stroller, with three 20" wheels, is built on a precision one-piece aluminum frame, which means there are no hinges or joints to weaken during frequent, high intensity use. The large wheels make it one of the easiest joggers to push on the market today. The only caveat is that the big wheels make for a big fold. I own this stroller and I have to remove the wheels -- which is easy to do -- in order to stow it in the back of my SUV. And because the front wheel doesn't turn (which is safer for running), it's tough to use this stroller for shopping and other indoor activities.
The Instep Safari Swivel Wheel Single Jogging Stroller is a rugged, well-priced jogging stroller that features 12-inch front and 16-inch rear tires with molded rims for durability and performance. The front tire swivels to get around tight turns and small spaces, but locks into place for running. The stroller is easy to fold and transport, using a dual trigger folding mechanism. Other features include a slip-resistant, rubberized handle grip, a molded parent tray with two cup holders, plus a pivoting and molded child tray, also with two cup holders. This stroller is compatible with many models of infant car seats.
Another great option for serious runners, the BOB Ironman Sport Utility Stroller features great on-road performance and responsive handling. With a fixed front wheel for superior on-road running performance, this stroller includes a fast, two step folding for compact storage and easy travel. The stiffer suspension maximizes maneuverability and response when running, while the padded reclining seat is made with your child's comfort in mind. The rear wheel foot-activated parking brake is easy to operate and locks out both rear wheels.
With extra-thick tires and a lightweight aluminum frame, the Schwinn Turismo Stroller offers a smooth ride and is easy to handle. It also includes desirable features such as a parent tray with two cup holders, a front swivel wheel that locks, a slip-resistant handle, dual trigger folding mechanism, and a pivoting child tray with 2 cup holders. The stroller even has built-in MP3 speakers so you can listen to some running songs (or kids' music) during your run.
