The Summit X3's handlebar is fixed at a fairly high 40" from the ground. You cannot adjust it to match your height, which is an inconvenience for short parents since their arms will be at a weird angle while running and may cause shoulder muscle injuries after prolonged use. See More
Thanks to the air-filled rubber 16" and 12" tires and all-wheel suspension, you can bring this stroller to any terrain and not worry about your child being bumped around on his seat. The wheels act as a natural suspension, and they contribute and work together with the suspension to absorb bumps and ensure your child stays steady on his seat. See More
The meter-long strap that you put around your wrist prevents the stroller from rolling away from you when you accidentally let go of the handle. Or if you trip over and fall down, you will not bring the whole stroller crashing with you since the leash is affixed to the bottom part of the stroller, unlike what would happen if the leash was short and attached to the handlebar. See More
The safety tether is attached to the bottom frame, preventing the stroller from toppling over when you fall down
Parents can attach car seats to this stroller to use it for every day, non-jogging use with their small infants. However, you should not use this stroller to jog with a child below 8 months old, since they still cannot handle the stress brought about by the bumps on the road. See More
Unlike all the other strollers that require you to bend down and manually lock the front wheel yourself, the Summit X is equipped with a lock lever located at the right side of the frame that you can easily reach. This is very convenient for parents who frequently switch between fixed and swivel modes when they are jogging and walking at intervals. See More
The three-fold canopy extends to cover the sun up to your child's knees. The three mesh windows can be openedfor good air circulation. At the sides are two mesh windows and a back window that can be exposed when the seat is fully reclined, providing comfort for your child especially during warm days. See More
Your children are safe and secured with the 5-point padded harness. It is easy for parents but difficult for the kids to unbuckle because pressure needs to be applied on the lock. You can run in peace without worrying that your child might jump off mid-run. See More
The Schwinn Turismo is very affordable. It may not have all the features you can find on a more expensive stroller but is a good option for parents who go out on a regular basis (to run errands or visit relatives, for example) and only occasionally jog. It doubles as a regular stroller and a jogging stroller, avoiding the need to have a second one. To this effect, parents can easily switch between locked wheel (when jogging) and swivel wheel (when maneuvering on normal activities). See More
This stroller has 1 brake for each wheel and you have to press them both to fully stop the stroller. This is a hassle for jogging parents. A single step-brake that controls both wheels is better. Or hand brakes, since you can also control/stop the stroller using your hands. See More
The front wheel has a locking mechanism. You can choose to either lock it in place or let it swivel freely. This feature is used for when you want to run or when you want to steer. A locked front wheel is more stable when running but is not advisable for non-jogging use since you would literally have to lift up the front part of the stroller to turn it to another direction. A swivel wheel is best used for said non-jogging activities. See More
Compared to most hand straps which can only be worn around the wrist, this strap is 1 meter long. If you fall and slip on the ground, you will not bring the stroller down with you as you go because of the tether's length. See More
This jogging stroller does not have a handbrake, which is an important feature that gives parents added control when running on varied terrain or on a downhill road, since it enables them to restrain the stroller's speed. The Thule only has a parking brake at the bottom of the stroller which, when stepped on, stops both rear wheels at the same time. See More
The Urban Glide has a 12" front wheel and 16" rear wheels. It's easy to maneuver because the front wheel can either be swiveled during regular/non-jogging days or locked into place on jogging days. This ability to switch from swivel to lock is an advantage since a swiveling wheel makes it easy to turn corners and switch directions during your normal daily activities. On the other hand, a locked wheel ensures that the stroller runs straight and doesn't shoot off in a different direction as it goes over a bump when jogging. See More
In case you accidentally release your grip on the handlebar, the safety strap worn on your wrist and attached to the handle prevents the stroller from rolling further away from you. It acts like a short leash that limits the stroller's motion. See More
The Urban Glide, like all strollers, has a 5-point harness with padded shoulder straps, and belts across the hips and between the legs. This is especially important in minimizing injuries in the event of a stroller flip or in the case of a crash. See More
The suspension system has better shock absorption on varied terrains like gravel and bumpy roads, than non-jogging strollers. It serves as a natural cushioning and allows the front wheel to bounce when passing over a bump in the road. The tires roll over bumps easily, lessening the impact transferred to your baby's body. See More
Wow, this is one of those items that seems to be overpriced on the front side, but the performance and ease of use after makes you glad you bought it. Rolls effortlessly, our 5lb Yorkie can pull the baby on a flat surface when leashed to the stroller with no problem. Rolls in the parking lots, over gravel, curbs, etc. with very fluid behavior and the in/out of the back of the Jeep or the Subaru is no worries. See More
