Exercise is just as important as eating a proper diet when it comes to maintaining your overall health, and this is especially true for parents. If you having been struggling to get back into shape or just don’t have to the time to take an hour to workout while someone else watches the kids, then why not take them with you. Jogging strollers are are fantastic way for parents and kids to spend time together in a way that is productive and fun. But what should you look for in a running stroller? We found one that covers all of the bases.

The BOB Revolution Flex jogger is an updated model of the Revolution SE and comes in bright, sporty colors, including lagoon (silver frame), orange (silver frame), wilderness, black (black frame) and lagoon (black frame). It’s designed with latest innovative features and is perfect for any sports experience. The stroller is available in two models, as a single one seat, and as a double stroller.

Key Features

1. Great Wheels

Once you place your order on this stroller, you will never be worried of the tough terrains that affect smooth ride. The 12” front wheels and the 16” rear wheels are designed with a high impact polymer composite with pneumatic tires and tubes that perform flawlessly, even in tough terrains. The swiveling front wheels also offer superior maneuverability. They lock forward, providing increased stability.

2. You Can Easily Create a Travel System

If your baby is less than 8-weeks old, you can still create a complete traveling system by matching the BOB-safe infant car seats with BOB infant car seat adapter. You will then be able to walk with your child right away. The accessory adapter allows you to attach BOB infant car seat adapter or the snack tray in a quick and easy way.

BOB recommends that your baby should be at least 8-weeks old before you can ride him or her in the stroller without the infant car seat adapter and compatible car seat. They also recommend that your son or daughter should be at least 8-months old before you can start jogging, running or off-road use.

3. Safe for Kids

The stroller comes with important features designed to help ease parents’ concerns about safety. The wrist strap is used to secure stroller when jogging. One end is attached to the handlebars and the other end to your wrist. This prevents the stroller from rolling away from you while on the go. The wrist wrap also provides a handy fold lock when it’s folded. Moreover, you will never get worried when engaged, as the foot activated parking brake between the rear wheels secures a stopped position.

4. Plenty of Storage or Carriage Space

Low Boy Cargo Basket provides you with plenty of undercarriage storage space. There is additional space in the large seat-back pocket. Snacks and toys can be placed in the internal seat pockets.

5. Adjustable Padded Handlebar

The handlebar has nice foam padding and can be used with parents of all heights. The 9-comfortable position options are excellent for adjusting the handlebar to the perfect fit.

6. Comfortable and Secure Seat

The ultra padded, adjustable reclining seats enhance seating comfort. Materials used to design the seats are stain-resistant, highly visible and durable. The seats feature five-point padded harness that keeps your son or daughter comfortably secure.

7. Large Canopy

Revolution Flex comes with a wide, multi-position canopy that adjusts easily, offering protection against elements. The pair of panels can be folded downwards so as to provide shade or coverage from various elements such as the sun and wind. The large viewing window located just above the canopy is constructed of a clear plastic material, letting you keep an eye on your child.

8. Easy to Clean

You will use a solution of lukewarm water and mild soap to clean spot sponge seat material-areas then rinse with clean water so as to remove all soap and allow it to dry. You should never use detergent.
