BOB Alterrain vs BOB Alterrain Pro | Stroller Comparison | Review

   Many parents who lead a healthy and active lifestyle before parenthood worry that having children will disrupt their exercise routine. This doesn’t have to be the case! Jogging strollers are a great option that allow you to exercise while bringing your child along for the ride. The BOB Alterrain and BOB Alterrain Pro strollers by BOB Gear are high quality running strollers designed to bring your family anywhere you go, but how should you choose which one is right for your family?

   Both strollers are excellent quality jogging strollers and are equipped to take you and your little one on adventures on all types of terrain. From running marathons to hiking forest trails to simple strolls at the park or playground, the BOB Alterrain and BOB Alterrain Pro both provide the smooth, comfortable, and safe ride you need. Large 16 inch rear wheels with SmoothShox suspension system on both strollers absorb bumps along the way to keep your baby comfortable. The 12 inch front wheel swivels 360 degrees on stainless steel ball bearings to give you super smooth steering and lasting durability. All the wheels on these all-terrain strollers are air-filled to add another layer of comfort, and are detachable for compact stroller storage.

   Both the BOB Alterrain and BOB Alterrain Pro are easily folded down with just one hand and a single step. These strollers are freestanding when folded, and feature a convenient carry handle for easy transport. The magnetic peek a boo window in each stroller seat allows airflow through the stroller to prevent your little passenger from getting too hot. The seat recline can be adjusted easily with one hand, nearly flat for napping on-the-go or fully upright for attentive adventures (or anywhere in between).

   The strollers’ cargo baskets are roomy so you can bring your necessities with you, and the strollers’ seats feature 5 individual storage pockets (2 in-seat, 2 seat-back, and 1 phone pocket at the handlebar) that provide additional storage for you and your child as well. The adjustable padded foam handlebars allow parents and caregivers of all sizes to push these strollers comfortably. These strollers are compatible with Britax, Chicco, Peg Perego, and Graco infant car seats for added convenience before your child reaches jogging age.

   So what makes the BOB Alterrain Pro different? While the BOB Alterrain was designed for outdoor adventures, the BOB Alterrain Pro is more fine-tuned for runners. It features an ergonomic handbrake on the handlebar to better help you navigate hilly terrain while staying in full control of the stroller. It also has more reflective accents for better visibility on nighttime runs, and an all-weather waterproof canopy. To top it all off, the BOB Alterrain Pro has a zip-top cargo basket that keeps your belongings securely inside the stroller when going over bumps and even when the stroller is folded.
