Comfy and Versatile
With a total weight capacity of 100lbs, this stroller can accommodate children up to the age of 5. The seat can recline into either two positions using an easy-to-use strap and buckle system. The first position reclines the seat to 45° and the second position reclines it down to 70°.
Anyone who has used a fitness stroller will tell you that manoeuvrability is a highly important factor. The Stroller Stride Fitness Stroller features three large pneumatic tires which have a schrader valve to allow you to fill them with air. The two rear tires are a huge 16″ x 1.75″ in size, while the smaller front tire is 12.5″ x 1.75″ and utilizes an advanced swivel wheel design to give you excellent manoeuvrability and sharp turning as you do your fitness walking or go jogging.
Bob didn’t implement just any old suspension system for this fitness stroller. It uses an advanced adjustable system which utilizes dual shock absorbers to allow you to fine tune the level of suspension required for the weight of your child to provide. The first position accommodates a child from 0-40 lbs, while the second position accommodates a higher weight of 41-70 lbs.
Two large sun canopies are included which do an excellent job of keeping both your little ones protected from the sunlight. The multi-position feature uses a strap to allow you to change the position of each canopy, so you can have the canopy as far down as required depending on how sunny it is.
A stroller this large needs a good folding system. Bob have created two-step folding to make folding down the stroller a quick task. The rear wheels can also be easily removed to make the footprint that much smaller so it’s even more compact to store.
Safety has been given a very high priority with the inclusion of several key safety measures. These include a foot operated rear parking brake which locks both rear wheels. The 5-pt padded harness in each seat keeps both your children safe and comfortable. A safety wrist strap is attached to the bottom of the stroller which ensures it doesn’t roll away if you accidently slip or fall whilst jogging.
Pros and Cons
Outstanding build quality, attractive design, easy to assemble, excellent adjustment options, great manoeuvrability and comfort.
The accessory adapter makes this newborn friendly by attaching a car seat.
The main drawback is that the stroller is rather bulky so it can be awkward storing it unless you have a good sized trunk.
The BOB Stroller Strides Duallie Fitness Stroller is a high class stroller that has the level of quality and features any active parent needs for light jogging and fitness walks. Its lightweight design, brilliant engineering, excellent suspension and manoeuvrability, makes this our #1 rated double fitness stroller.
