It’s a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining, and you’re ready to hit the hiking trails and get in a good jog. There’s just one problem..how can you get your baby’s stroller to make it through the rough trail terrain while keeping your child content and comfortable?

Finding the right stroller for your active lifestyle can be very tricky, but it is possible. Enter the BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 Jogging Stroller — the active parent’s dream come true. Whether you want to go for a run, jog, or simply head out for a family day exploring forest trails, the park, or the beach, this stroller is up for the challenge.

Let us take you through all the features that earned this stroller a place as one of our Top Jogging Strollers.

Design & Build

THE SPECS: 
  • Recommended Age: Newborn to 75 lbs or 44” 
    • From Birth with Infant Car Seat (walk only)
    • From 8 Weeks Riding in Stroller Seat (walk only)
    • From 8 Months in Stroller Seat (Jogging/off-road)

  • Handlebar Height (adjustable): 34.5” – 48” 

You’ll notice the Revolution Flex 3.0 has a unique design. With three rugged wheels and a sturdy suspension system frame, it’s clear this stroller is built for adventurer. At just under 29 lbs., this stroller is lightweight but still strong and durable. Designed to tackle the roughest of terrains, the Revolution Flex 3.0 is available in sleek black fashions with high visibility design elements to keep you safe during evening or night outings. The stroller is also made up of water-resistant materials and has a sun shield attached to keep your little one safe from UV rays. When not in use, the stroller can be compressed down into a twofold and can be closed or opened in less than 30 seconds.

Grows with Baby

One of our favourite things about this jogging stroller is that it’s not just another piece of baby gear your child will outgrow within a matter of months. This baby is designed for use from birth to big kid, and boasts several possible adjustments that make it the perfect investment for you and your baby.

This stroller is newborn-friendly when used with an infant car seat (hello, instant travel system). During the first few months, using a travel system is so handy, so we give Revolution Flex 3.0 huge brownie points for accommodating busy families. This stroller is compatible with infant car seats from several different brands and BOB offers car seat adapters for all of them. Just click the infant seat onto the stroller frame and away you go. 

When your baby is 8 weeks old, they can start using the stroller seat. This is earlier than most stroller seats, which often require parents to wait until their child is 6 months old. This is largely thanks to the seat's ability to recline to a near-flat position, which can be done with a single hand.

For the first 8 months, the stroller can only be used while walking (until your child is able to sit up in the stroller seat comfortably). Once your child is 8 months, you can take it up a notch and start going for jogs or runs. The 5-point harness guarantees your child’s safety as you take on a faster pace.

Comfort & Convenience

You can be sure your little one will have a comfy ride with premium features like a compression comfort seat, seat back ventilation, and a UPF 50+ canopy to keep them shaded on sunny days.

The Revolution Flex 3.0 also has loads of features for mom and dad! The handlebar is made of cushy foam and can be adjusted into 9 different positions ensuring parents of every height can enjoy taking a trip around the block. It also has a wrist wrap to give you an extra sense of security when jogging with the stroller and a cellphone pocket for easy access.

There is also a little clear window on the back of the stroller so you can keep an eye on your baby, or keep it covered with its magnetic closure.

Adventures with a child require lots of essentials and snacks, luckily, with 6 storage pockets and a large basket for you to store a backpack or diaper bag, the Revolution Flex 3.0 Jogging Stroller has you covered there too.

Round & Round

Just take one look at the Revolution Flex 3.0 Jogging Stroller and one of the first things that will catch your attention is the wheels. The wheels on this stroller give it an extra boost of stability and durability.

These air-filled, all-terrain tires have an extra strong and adaptable grip to keep you in control on all surface areas. The entire design of the wheels, from rims to spokes, is designed for high-impact use. Thanks to these heavy-duty wheels, your child can enjoy a consistently smooth ride in any condition, be it walking, jogging, or running.

The front wheel provides a large range of movements and swivel options. It also has a tracking adjustment that can be used to ensure the stroller stays straight when moving at faster speeds. The two back wheels can also easily be removed and reattached to make storing and transporting the stroller easier.

When needed, all three wheels can be locked into place, which can be done through an effortless foot pedal brake system at the back of the stroller (flip-flop friendly).
