  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:The tires are nice. The stroller is easy to push. The handlebar adjusts.

Cons:The seats are awful. The sunshade doesn't adjust to where you want it.

The Bottom Line: This stroller is decent for the money, but I wouldn't have bought it if I had seen it or tested it in the store.


I have a 2 1/2 yr old and a 12 month old. I am stay at home mom and like to try to running everyday for at least 30 min so, I needed a stroller that could accomodate my needs. I did a lot of research on which jogging stroller to buy and after tons and tons of online research I decided on this one. To be honest, it's not the worst stroller, but I was a pretty disappointed the first time that I used it! First of all, the seats are awful - which in my opinion is one of the most important parts of a jogging stroller aside from safety of course- that your kids are comfortable for the ride, so that you can enjoy your exercise and not worry about how your children feel in their seats!! Next,there is a bar that runs accross the top of the seat,in which my 2 year old's head rests right ontop of it! The seats also don't adjust very well to sit more upright. There is a strap that you can tighten on the back of each chair, but it will only tighten so much, and is still left in a reclining position. My boys don't seem to mind so much though (for right now). The seats are a bit flimsy. There is mesh around the seats (for ventilation), and a thin divider in the middle. The seat that my 12 month old sits in is always leaning towards the middle (which I don't like and can't fix)!
Next, the sun shade is cheap. It doesn't stay at the angle you want it at.If it's not completely overhead, it falls forward and collapses.I did however come up with a way to tie it to stay at the angle I want with some string.
Aside from all of the strollers negative aspects, there are some things I found that are positive:
The tires on the stroller are nice and wide and seem to hold the air pressure well. The stroller handles very easily! It is easier to push this stroller than the single jogger that I have! So, running with my 2 boys is a breeze. It is also super easy to turn even though it doesn't have a swivel wheel (which I didn't want). I can do small turns with one hand. Although you do have to be careful that you don't lift the fromt wheels up too much while turning, because the stroller is back heavy and could tip easily.
The underneath basket is nice and has ample space. There is also a convenient parent tray that attatches to the handle that you can adjust where it goes or just take off.
The hand break is another plus for the stroller. It is nice to know that I can stop abruptly if I need to, especially if I'm going downhill. That is a nice safety feature! The handlebar also adjusts up and down depending on the height of the person pushing. I'm 5'1, but my husband is 6'0, so it's nice to be able to change the height of it.
So all in all, I guess there are about as many negatives as there are positives, it just depends on what you find important in a jogging stroller. But,for me, if I had been able to see this stroller and test it in the store, I wouldn't have bought it.
