BOB Revolution Flex Review
When I think BOB, I think hard core. These guys obviously know what they’re doing and can accommodate for some legit outdoorsy-ness. It’s no secret they have some of the top jogging strollers on the market and here’s a little more information about one of them: the Revolution Flex Jogging Stroller.
The tires on this bad boy are air-filled, as any jogging stroller’s tires should be. The back tires measure 16 inches and the front tire is 12.5 inches. These tires are large and in charge, and can easily conquer any terrain they’re put up against. To this day, one of my worst memories was being at the beach with a very non-sand friendly stroller. Never again. The Revolution Flex wont have that “stuck” issue in the sand. Heck, it likely won’t get stuck anywhere at all!
The front tire locks, which is ideal for jogging as it helps the momentum move forward and creates less work for the jogger. The brake is a simple one that requires the push or lift of a foot. And the suspension on this thing is the real deal; it is incredibly ideal for a jogging stroller, once again.
As the video mentions, it’s really not recommended to jog with a baby younger than six months old. That being said, this stroller will hold a baby from eight weeks old on, so I guess it’s up to you–eight weeks to a whopping 75 pounds. That is a very long use for a stroller! And this isn’t a fickle number; it was obviously designed with larger kids in mind. Its seat is large and tall, and its harness can be adjusted to roughly three heights. There are side pockets on the inside of the seat for snacks, drinks, or treasures, and an ample amount of legroom as well.
This stroller has a very large canopy, a reasonably sized storage basket, a simple two-step fold, and a gazillion available accessories to make both your life and your child’s life a little easier, and your runs as smooth as possible.
Basically any “con” that I could ever come up with for this stroller (i.e. its weight) can be followed up with, “but it’s a jogging stroller, so it’s actually a very helpful and necessary feature.” So I guess what I’m trying to say is this: if you’re in the market for a fantastic jogging stroller, with all the essential bells and whistles, buy this stroller. If you’re not crazy about the outdoors and hardly ever go jogging, then this stroller likely isn’t the one for you.
