A Jogger Stroller Travel System Can Turn Any Stroll Into a Jog
Investing in a jogger stroller travel system is the perfect way to turn any stroll into jog, giving you more freedom while getting some exercise at the same time. Specialized for jogging, running, and other outdoor activities, jogger strollers feature air-filled tires for more comfortable ride for both parent and child, as well as suspension to smooth out any rougher terrains encountered while jogging.
Many joggers come equipped with an expansive canopy that can protect your child from sun, rain and wind. Look out for features like ratcheted sun canopies with multiple positions for adjustable coverage throughout the seasons as well as peek-a-boo windows or peek-a-boo windows and peek-a-boo windows to give the maximum amount of shade available to them. Other parent-focused accessories may include deep storage baskets with two cup holders on expandable trays as well as soft grip handles that adjust up to three different positions so caregivers of various heights can accommodate.
Some joggers come as part of a travel system with car seat, for instance the Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Click Connect Stroller can attach an infant car seat (Graco SnugRide SnugLock 35 LX) easily in one step without adapters or additional seats needed, and folds down to 70% of its original size, making it one of the more compact options on the market.
The BOB Gear Rambler jogger stroller travel system can accommodate an infant car seat via its simple click and lock attachment system, and its padded rear seating area reclines into various positions for optimal baby comfort. Furthermore, its storage basket holds enough to store necessities as well as comfortable grip handles – ideal for busy parents on the go! Additionally, an ergonomic trigger release makes folding it quickly – something particularly handy.
A good jogger stroller should feature brakes that are easily accessible, durable and provide smooth stopping power in all conditions. Consider brakes that combine a parking and deceleration brake; Orbit Baby X5 All-Terrain Jogger strollers have one such system with two action brakes plus an hand brake to provide optimal results.
No matter your travel system needs or stroller style preference, there is sure to be one out there that suits them both perfectly.
