In summary, here are the four winners:
o The Editors’ Choice Award went to the BOB Revolution SE for its great maneuverability, comfortable and smooth ride for baby, and its lightweight feel. The overall high quality and versatility of this stroller made it a clear winner and worth its price tag.
o The BOB Ironman took home the Top Pick Award for Serious Runners for how easy it is to run with. With its fixed front wheel, it is the ultimate jogging stroller, designed for speed and long distance runs on hard surfaces.
o The BOB Sport Utility earned its Top Pick Award for All-Terrain because of its knobby tires, sturdiness and hand-break responsiveness. Its nimbleness and fixed front wheel make it very well suited for hiking or cross-country running.
o The Best Value Award went to the Baby Trend Expedition. While not suitable for the serious runner, for the person looking for a jogging-style stroller and only use on shorter runs across smooth paved surfaces, this stroller offers a great combination of prove and performance. Its quality does not compare to the other three winners, but makes up for it in cost for those on a tighter budget.
BabyGearLab has also published an article entitled “How to Choose the Best Jogging Stroller” that provides tips on which factors to consider and features to look for before buying.
As a pediatrician practicing in the Bay Area while pregnant with her first child, Dr. Spurrier searched for an online resource to help with the extensive list of buying decisions she had to make on behalf of her baby. Unable to find exactly what she was looking for, she founded BabyGearLab.com around the time her second child was born as a service to new parents seeking detailed and credible information on baby product performance and safety.
