Stroller Running and the Bumbleride Speed – FitFam6

FitFam6 Bumbleride Speed jogging Stroller Review

We had the pleasure of meeting Paula and David at Run She Is Beautiful in Santa Cruz, CA. Below is an excerpt from their recent post about Stroller Running during their visit to San Diego, CA for the Rock N Roll Marathon.

“Let’s chat about a stroller for a hot minute.  It’s not a secret that 99% of all my running is done with a stroller.  Fact.  However what I don’t share enough about is that I have tried quite a few strollers, either because I own quite a few (ummmm Dave thinks I have a stroller hoarding problem.  I refuse to talk about it) or I have been able to borrow a stroller.  I use the stroller for running errands to long runs to all kinds of training workouts.  My strollers get put through a lot! Not only with the miles that I put on them, but also with Asher and his behaviors that come along with his disability.  Let’s not forget that he was able to literally break a stroller seat less than a year ago because of said behaviors…”

“Most recently someone reached out and she was very detailed on her needs, upcoming races and so on.  I did my long spiel but in the end I did something I don’t typically do and I gave a one stroller recommendation: the Bumbleride Speed.  This stroller is a strong choice for an avid stroller runner and a once in a while stroller runner.  It is multi-purpose, filling this gap in stroller running thinking.  Stroller running is not all-or-nothing where you either run with a stroller and try to get faster, better, stronger or you just don’t like it at all.  This stroller welcomes in those runners who don’t necessarily want to be a stroller runner, but perhaps need it for necessity on certain days or for easy runs.  With all the running strollers on the market, this stroller checks a lot of boxes that no other stroller I have seen or tried addresses and when I was recently asked “If you could pick one stroller…” my answer was confidently Bumbleride.” – Read More

Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller Review Women's Running Magazine

{This is an excerpt from Women’s Running Magazine’s Speed Review}

Bumbleride, a stroller company started in 2004, recently debuted its first dedicated running stroller, Speed ($549, bumbleride.com). I tested the stroller on runs with my 2-year-old son (about 30 pounds) on flat and hilly paved streets and one trail to evaluate Speed’s design, features and performance.

Design

The stroller features “Speed3 steering,” which includes three steering modes for different paces—the front wheel locked for running, locked at 30 degrees for jogging, and unlocked 360-degree movement for walking. Though I personally prefer to run with the front wheel unlocked or just partially locked, it was easy to transition between steering modes.

Features…..

Performance

The sturdy 16-inch rear wheels (air pump is included) and lightweight aluminum frame (24 pounds) made for a smooth ride that was a dream to push, even one-handed or up hills. The stroller handled effortlessly over different terrains and didn’t cause any complaints from my son. I have a tendency to use my jogging strollers for everyday walks or errands too, and the Speed transitioned perfectly. With the front wheel unlocked it swiveled incredibly smoothly and steered well around a crowded outdoor event, and it was narrow enough to fit down store aisles.

Summary

Overall, Speed is a fantastic running stroller. It is an investment, but it is clearly designed to meet the needs of runners, parents and their kids. It was one of the easiest strollers to push that I’ve run with and was a truly smooth ride for both me and my son. Highly recommend!
