Drool Baby Expo - BoB Stroller Spotlight 2021 ( Ratings | Reviews | Prices )
One of the longest running Magic Beans’ staples is the BOB gear line of running strollers. For a long time they were the one and only jogging stroller, and have spent over a decade perfecting the concept. Starting strong with their flexible suspension and locked front wheels, they became the safest bet for runners around the country.
Today’s BOB’s look a bit different but share all of the design integrity of the originals, with more modern aesthetics and functional flourishes to ensure they can be both an everyday stroller and a running stroller. Things like storage pockets, heavier duty fabrics, longer canopies, and eventually even swivel wheels that lock when you’re ready to jog have been added over the years to ensure they have the right option for every lifestyle.
When looking for a jogging stroller, think about how you want to use it. Would you like it to be solely for jogging? Are you training for a long distance run? Is this more of an occasional use item? Will you want it to be your everyday stroller? Do you want to run with two children?
Thankfully, BOB has answers for all of these questions and more! Their most popular stroller, the BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 is the middle ground in their lineup. It offers a rotating front wheel that locks in place for jogging, meaning you can use it for more intense runs but also unlock the wheel when you stop running so that turning is a breeze. There’s the BOB Rambler, which is more of a light jogger for those who aren’t planning a marathon anytime soon, as well as the lightest option for those frequently lifting it in and out of trunks.
Then there’s the BOB Alterrain Pro, which is an amazing option for outdoor enthusiasts who want to hike, or stroll along the beach with kiddo, while still retaining the versatility of a lockable front wheel. For hardcore runners they have a fixed wheel stroller in the BOB Blaze that is great for long distance running and training.
They’ve added car seat capability to their strollers over the years, as well as offering the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie 3.0 for those who want to run with two! BOB has been an innovator since the beginning and continues to get better with age. Be sure to check them out at our upcoming Virtual Edition of Drool Baby Expo on March 7th! You can get tickets here.
