On my quest to find the perfect stroller, I discovered that most did not perform well, deteriorated quickly, or had a plethora of design flaws. If you too have scoured the baby-verse only to end up with a trunk full of subpar strollers, look no further! Buy a BOB Stroller.
I don’t think anything else needs to be said, look how easily I push the stroller with one hand while also carting around luggage.
If the video isn’t convincing, continue on!
Many believe Bob strollers are merely for runners and outdoorsy type, but it’s just not true. If safety, ease-of-use, and storage are important factors in purchasing a stroller, then a BOB is for you. BOB strollers are renowned for their quality and performance. Both the single and double strollers can be pushed using just one fingertip with ease on a flat and even surface, nothing else compares on the market today.Whether you’re a city dweller, suburbanite, or country folk, there is no other stroller worth trying.
Since becoming a mom six years ago, I’ve owned strollers that have turning radius of a monster truck, were incredibly difficult to wield, and with little storage. On top of that, they’ve flipped, wheel axles broke, and tires pitted. Most strollers are hard to open and close, others were uncomfortable for my children, and most had inadequate sun shades (leaving my children exposed to the elements or unable to nap while out). BOB strollers have none of the above problems, and as you can see, manipulating them is a dream.
The Pro version differentiates itself from the others in the fleet with its “hand-activated, rear drum brakes for the best downhill control.” Like most of the other models, the front wheel can swivel for top maneuverability or lock for added stability. The state-of-the-art adjustable suspension system takes bumps in stride and the adjustable handlebar provides a perfect fit for any parent.”
The 2016 Revolution Flex (single) stroller is my favorite model. It retails for a bit less than the Pro at $449.95. The 2016 BOB Revolution Flex Duallie (double) stroller retails for $639.99. The Flex boasts all the same wonderful features as the Pro but lacks the hand break. In my opinion, the average mom doesn’t need the hand-activated, rear drum brake, I never have. The stroller’s impeccable design allows for perfect control on some of the steepest hills.
The BOB Rambler is the company’s answer to a compact stroller. It may be smaller and lighter, but still has “BOB performance.” The Rambler retails for $359.99.
The BOB Lunar Flex is the Flex with the extra benefit of having an, “… ultra reflective fabric which keeps you safe and visible during morning jogs or evening strolls.“ the Lunar Flex retails for $469.95.
The 2016 Stroller Strides Fitness (single) stroller and the 2016 Stroller Strides Duallie (double) stroller are modeled after the 2016 Bob Revolution Flex. The dark blue branded stroller, “Comes with Stroller Strides fitness class coupons (valid in US only) for a free week of Stroller Strides classes by Fit4Mom and a Stroller Strides Fitness Kit by BOB, including a handlebar console, Stroller Strides exercise manual and SPRI fitness resistance bands.” The Stroller Strides Fitness retails for $469.99 and the Stroller Strides Duallie retails for $659.99 both models only cost $20.00 more than the comparable Flex in its class.
The 2016 Ironman has a fixed front wheel. It’s great for jogging and speed training but it’s fixed wheel makes it less desirable for a day-to-day stroller. The 2016 Ironman has, “16” semi-slick, air-filled tires on lightweight aluminum alloy wheels which means that the stroller is built for speed just like a road bike. Hand-activated front caliper brake for added control when jogging downhill.” The 2016 Ironman (single) stroller retails for $419.99 and the 2016 Ironman Duallie (double) stroller retails for $599.99.
The 2016 Sport Utility Stroller is the only stroller in the fleet that I have yet to experiment with but I’m sure it’s just as well designed and performance driven as the rest. It’s ”just as perfect for adventures off the beaten path with your two kids. With a fixed front wheel for added stability and a hand brake for downhill control, you can hit the trails with your little ones in tow. And the pneumatic knobby tires and state-of-the-art adjustable suspension system smooth out bumps along the way.” The 2016 Sport Utility (single) stroller retails for $399.99. The 2016 Sport Utility Duallie (double) stroller retails for $579.99.
If you’re reluctant to buy a BOB because of the price tag, don’t be. In the long run, you’ll end up spending more money buying a bunch of strollers that just didn’t work out. Heed my advice… buy a BOB!
