Choosing the Perfect Jogging Stroller
When choosing the perfect jogging stroller, a very important question to ask yourself is whether you want a swivel or fixed wheel. The benefit of choosing a jogging stroller with a fixed wheel is that it will offer the stability and straight tracking that you will require. The front wheel tends to be larger on a fixed wheel model which means it will be a smoother ride for your child and will handle bumps better at any speed.
When shopping for a fixed wheel jogging stroller there are several questions you should be asking yourself. Is this stroller travel friendly? Is it important to you that your jogger stroller has a folding mechanism? Consider whether or not you it is important to you that your jogger stroller also has a bike trailer included for people that cycle. For those of you are that are off-road runners, nature trail enthusiasts or live in a neighborhood with bumpy sidewalks, you should consider purchasing a jogger stroller with sturdy frames, suspension systems and high-quality construction.
If you do not plan on actually running with your jogging stroller then you might want to invest in one with a swivel front wheel. A jogging stroller with a swivel front wheel is an appropriate choice for indoor use, such as malls and the grocery store. The swivel wheel jogging stroller is usually 12" or less whereas the standard fixed front wheel is 16". Although swivel wheel jogging strollers are less graceful with bumps and do not tend to track as straight they make tight turns much easier. These strollers can be used in a non-swivel mode for the occasional light jog.
Choosing a swivel wheel jogger stroller that is car seat compatible is also an important decision to make. A car seat compatible swivel wheel jogger stroller is convenient for transporting your child from the house to car to stroller without having to wake them up.
