A jogging stroller is an ‘all-terrain’ stroller with three to four large tires ranging from 14 to 20 inches in diameter. These relatively bigger tires (usually with suspension) can take on any type of pavement or flooring, making the jogging stroller easier to push. This makes jogging strollers are easy to maneuver in tight turns, alleyways, and crowded areas such as malls.
Types of Jogging Strollers
Kinds of Jogging Strollers include the following:
Single-passenger jogging stroller
A single-passenger jogging stroller has only one seat for accommodating one child. It is light and easy to maneuver. Good models fold easily to fit into most car trunks and closets.
Double-passenger jogging strollers
A double-passenger stroller is made up of two seats for accommodating two children. Most models have rain tarps/wind screens. Some even have removable front wheels so that they can be turned into pull-carts for bicycles. It is available in two types: the stadium jogging stroller (seats arranged one in front of the other) and side-by-side jogging stroller (seats arranged next to each other).
Twin strollers are heavier and more cumbersome to operate than single-passenger jogging strollers. They are harder to maneuver in tight spaces and sharp turns. However, some users prefer them because the extra weight makes the jog more challenging.
Choosing Jogging Strollers (Buying tips)
Padding: Look for a jogging stroller made with thick padding that absorbs impacts caused by moving at a fast pace.
Safety: For safety, choose a jogging stroller made with adjustable shoulder straps and lap belts attached to the frame.
