Best Jogging Strollers – Motherly

Why it’s our fave: The most versatile stroller on our list, the Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller is one of the few on the market that you can take to out for a run on the beach and then meet up friends at a fancy brunch spot… all while looking super stylish. Comprised of soft, durable fabrics made 100% from recycled polyester—the brand is responsible for keeping more than half a million water bottles out of landfills since 2011—the Speed has the sleek brushed aluminum frame of a city stroller combined with the all-wheel suspension of a jogger. About those wheels! Created for a walk/jog/run lifestyle, the front 12-inch wheel can be locked forward for runs, locked at 30-degrees for a jog, or set to 360-degree swivel when walking about town. We also love the myriad pockets (the cellphone canopy zip is genius), the easy-access foot break and the standing fold. Oh, and that it has a matching bassinet and car seat adapters, making it an option for newborns, too. If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop stroller on day one with baby that functions just as well commuting as it does knocking out a 5k in record time, this is it.

More to know: Those aforementioned fabrics are also Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class I certified to be free from harmful chemicals (including PVC & phthalate).”- Mother.ly

Trail Runner Magazine – All Terrain Strollers

All-Terrain Strollers

“A stroller that can handle a variety of surfaces and speeds.

As with most things baby related, it’s hard to know what you need until the little one has arrived. But trail runners will know at least one thing for certain: They’ll want a stroller they can run with. Your choice of ride can be the difference between a blissful jaunt with your beloved and a cry-filled slog that can’t end soon enough.

In testing running strollers over the last six months, we came to terms with the fact that bombing down some of our favorite technical, singletrack trails was just not going to happen with a baby. But the right stroller will keep you moving on packed dirt, gravel paths and mellow trails.”

2017 Bumbleride Speed

Price:  $550

Weight: 26 lbs

Child Weight Max: 65 lbs

“The Bumbleride is well-made, versatile and durable—a piece of equipment you’ll be able to use for some time. It navigates easily on all types of surfaces, and has excellent suspension and a clean, sleek look.

The company touts it as being eco-friendly—the Speed is made partly of recycled water bottles and is free of chemicals like PVC and phthalates. That may contribute to the price, which is well above other comparable options.

With the front wheel locked—a feature many running strollers offer to increase stability when moving at faster speeds—this stroller can seem heavy, especially when pushing it uphill. But when the wheel is on swivel, it’s smooth and easy to push, making for a comfortable ride for both runner and baby.

The storage is spacious and easy to get into, and the canopy has more coverage than many other strollers, making it good for unexpected rain showers. The fabric is thick and durable, but can make for a sweaty baby on hot summer days. A couple of bonus features: it comes with a bell, so you can let people know when you’re running up behind them, and it has a small zippered pocket for your phone and keys.”

Bumbleride Speed Review – @RunningRoundy

View this post on Instagram

@bumbleride has so generously provided their Speed jogging stroller, bassinet, and accessories in exchange for my honest review of their amazing products. I’m excited to let you know all about it! There are so many impressive aspects and features that make Bumbleride unique and the best choice in my opinion. . . They’re a company that is like-minded with outdoor companies such as Patagonia, the North Face, and others who strive to preserve the planet. Some ways they’re doing so is by making eco friendly fabrics from recycled plastic bottles and using dye processes that conserve water. . I like their straightforward, common sense design. It’s by far the best on the market in my opinion. Their clean, purpose-built design is the perfect balance between functionality and style. It’s the most aesthetically pleasing. The steering is engineered for easy strolling and turning. And the front wheel can be locked for your faster tempo runs. Other features that impress me are the adjustable handlebar and how incredibly compact it becomes once it’s folded. And it’s never been easier to fold a stroller, let alone a jogger! My husband was also very impressed by this. He thinks it’s better than any stroller we’ve used, and more compact than the smaller ones we’ve owned. He likes that it’s a stroller that can be your “one and only.” The assembly was very easy and simple. There’s nothing unnecessary in the sophisticated design. . Let me tell you about the bassinet. I’m in love with this accessory! Baby is so comfortable laying down inside. You can attach it with or without the seat fabric (I left mine in, placing the bassinet on top). They also have the option of a seat adapter that allows you to use your own infant carrier brand including Maxi Cosi, Cybex, Nuna, Peg Perego, Graco or Chicco. The bassinet is my favorite accessory. . I did my research on jogging strollers including the BOB and Thule brands, and nothing topped Bumbleride. This high-end stroller is sold all over the world and by fine retailers such as Pottery Barn Kids, as well as on their website bumbleride.com . #bumblerideadventures #bumbleride #postpartumtraining
