Jogging Stroller With Swivel Wheel? Why It Might Be Right For You

Sep 8, 2008
A traditional three wheel jogger stroller may be a bad decision for you and your family!

Parents with young children are more and more committed to staying fit. They want to be with their kids as they go inline skating, or enter a 10 kilometer running race, or join a moms and tots walking club. Many of these folks have went out and bought a jogging stroller to help them stay healthy and fit.

Traditional joggers are great for serious runners/joggers. They are built to be easy to push and for a comfortable ride for their passengers. They have 2 16" wheels in the back (which provide the smooth ride and easy pushing) and they have one 16" front wheel which is locked in place. The fixed wheel is designed to keep the stroller tracking straight and true when out for a run. To turn the stroller you tilt it back slightly so the front wheel is just off the ground.

Now don't get me wrong the fixed front wheel is ideal for jogging, because it provides the stability and straight tracking that you need.

But there are people who are looking for a stroller that they can use for other purposes. Sure they want to use it to exercise - but they also want to use it when they go shopping, or when they are at an amusement park, or any outing with their kids.

The fixed wheel is great for jogging but it becomes a nuisance when out shopping because the stroller has to be tilted back onto its rear wheels to make a turn. And it is not the easiest to manoeuvre down the aisles of a department store.

There is now a new style of jogging stroller on the market - one that can be effectively used for exercising (jogging/running, inline skating, power-walking, and so on) and can also be used for other practical purposes - going to the store, walking through the neighbourhood, etc.

This "hybrid" jogging stroller has a front wheel that swivels. The hybrid strollers still have two large 16 inch wheels in the rear - they provide the smooth ride. They have a smaller 12 inch front wheel in the front that can be locked in place for jogging purposes with a push of a button and can be a swivel wheel for everyday shopping purposes. Here are the advantages of a Baby Jogging Stroller with a swivel front wheel...

* Super for running, jogging, speed-walking or even inline skating on smooth surfaces

* Get maximum use from your stroller. Take it to the grocery store or to a busy amusement park (the swivel front wheel makes tight turning a breeze) or go for a run with the front wheel locked-in place.

* Made of lightweight material which means they are made for smooth rolling and easy pushing. You won't be straining yourself to put the stroller into and out of the trunk of your car.

* Made of long-lasting, rust-resistant aluminum frame.

* Ultra-smooth riding. Your child will enjoy the smoothness of the ride. The stroller gets its smooth-ride from the 16" large rear wheels.

* Baby is safe and secure with the harness style (5 point harness) that these strollers are manufactured with.

* Sun Protection - Look for a stroller that has a sun canopy that has the flexibility to provide shade to your baby no matter what the angle of the sun.

* Easily folds-down by one person. These new strollers have a quick process for folding down - and it can be done by one person. Why is this important? You won't always have the luxury of having a second person nearby to help to collapse the stroller.

* Flexible-height adjusting handle bar. If your partner is 6 foot 5, and you are five foot 2 you'll want a stroller that has handle bars that can move up and down with the touch of a lever. Many of the 'hybrid' strollers now have flex-height handle bars.

* Good value. For under $280 (on the world wide web) you can buy a well built, top quality 'hybrid' stroller with an adjustable front wheel (locks in place and with a push of a lever the wheel swivels).
