How to Choose a Good Jogging Stroller


If you lead an active lifestyle and you want to include your new family additions in your outdoor activity then you need to consider getting yourself a good jogging stroller.

Choosing a jogging stroller can be like trying to decide on what car to buy. There are so many things to consider when making a decision. A good jogger can set you back anywhere from $79 to about $400. This is a lot of money but you get what you pay for.

There a several brands on the market and if you have been doing your research you will notice that each brand will have its own unique selling point. Before you decide to buy its important to know what you will be using it for. If you are someone who just wants a jogger for the odd brisk walk in the park or as an every day stroller then you will find there are brands that will suit this kind of activity.

The most noticeable difference in a jogging stroller is its wheel size. If you are a casual user then a jogger with smaller wheels will suit you. Smaller wheels are better for smooth surfaces. Smaller wheels are also usually easier to turn. If you are an avid runner and want to use your jogger for regular runs then you would have to opt for one with bigger wheels.

Bigger Wheels are much better for negotiating rough terrain and other obstacle like curbs and steps. The bigger wheels will help you glide over all types of terrain giving a much smoother ride. Certain Joggers are fitted with Shocks and Suspensions and are recommended for off road use. Joggers will have a fixed nose wheel which makes it more stable when being pushed at high speeds. If you are using your jogger for running or just around the supermarket then opt for a jogger that has a swivel wheel which can be locked into place if you decide to go out for a run. Swivel wheels will allow much easier manoeuvrability in small spaces.

The most important aspect of choosing a Jogger is that it must be comfortable for your child. If you are going to go running then you need to make sure the ride is comfortable and smooth. Make sure your jogger had reclining seats. Your child may fall asleep while you are out running so it is important that they are in a comfortable lying position. Most Joggers will not have a fully reclining seat due to the nature of the design.

If you look after your Jogger then it will hold its resale value. When you come to sell it you will find there will be no shortage of buyers. These are expensive items so many people will look to purchasing a used one.
