Welcome to New Parents in Training. So today I’m gonna compare three jogging, strollers. We have the Thule Urban Glide 2, BOB Gear Flex 3.0, and Joovy Zoom 360 ultra-light.
So I have done videos on them individually before. So, I’ll put those links on top so you can go check them out.
So, what I’m gonna do today is to compare all three of them side by side, starting with setting up two. I’m gonna talk about quality and three vulnerabilities. And lastly, I’m gonna talk about the value, what those three are gonna bring to you.
So anyway, don’t forget to hit the light button and subscribe. So, first of all, let’s talk about setup. All three strollers came with the wheels off, so you do have to install them. The installation part is fairly simple, so I’m not gonna go through with them here.
The insulation guys provided by the store clearly indicate how you can install the front. And the real wheels only Jovi comes with a hangout pump included with the destroyer, the other two, they don’t. But honestly, I will still recommend you to get an electrical air pump with a gauge. So, you know exactly how much PSI of air you have pumped into those tires.
Now, the Joovy Zoom 360 handheld one is nice that they included one, but that thing is kind of hoarded designed.
And when you try to pump air into the tires, that handheld pump is just not that useful, right?
Let’s talk about the quality of the three strollers. Now, the Bob gear is the heaviest coming at around 28.5 pounds for the stroller itself. The two lead comes in at 25 pounds.
Now, Joovy Zoom 360 is the lightest coming at about 15 pounds.
Now you might think heavier. It means better, but not necessarily in this case, the truly urban glide two, even though coming at lighter than the Bob gear, but three pounds lighter, I would more prefer the Thule stroller because that stroller is actually well built and it feels sturdy.
Don’t get me wrong. The BOB Gear Flex 3.0, it still feels really sturdy, but it just, it does come in heavier than the Tuly. Now, as far as for the Joovy Zoom 360, even though it’s the lightest of the three, it feels really FSY. It doesn’t have the structural integrity that you will want from a stroller compared to BOB Gear and Thule Urban Glide 2.
Uh, Joovy Zoom 360 is definitely not that great in terms of body design. So all three stores come with sun canopy. Now the BOB Gear and Thule Urban Glide 2 sun canopy do offer some SPF protection.
However, the Joovy Zoom 360 does not have any SPF protection. In all three strollers, the sun canopy cannot cover the entire baby’s body. Now, if you do want more production for your baby, then Thule might be the one for you.
It does have accessories that you can purchase that can cover the entire stroller to protect your baby from the sun. All three strollers have multiple pockets where you can store stuff such as inside the seat behind the seat. And also under the seat, they do have a capacity for all three of them.
The weight capacity is 75 pounds. That’s including the baby and all the accessories that you can put inside. Now for the two one, the actually the maximum capacity for the child is actually at 49 pounds. But for the other two, they just only mentioned that the total weight capacity is at 75. All next, let’s talk about vulnerability.
Now, all three of them are suited for jogging. The fun wheel is small than the rear and easy for all three of them to go over to rings. That’s not an issue. So the phone wheel can be locked for running purposes for all three of them.
And you do need to do that according to their instruction. If you don’t lock the phone wheel, the shoulder will become unstable when you are doing fast, walking or jogging. So it’s not safe for the kit. Now, when you are jogging, you have to lock the front wheel now for the Bob Gear and also Jovi when you lock the front wheel because of the position that it has to face forward. The strollers themselves are very hard to maneuver, but not. So for the tool, the tool, the front wheel can be locked either to facing the front or facing the back.
When is facing the front, then the car is very stable doing a straight line, but if you need to run in a place that has more curves, then you can actually lock the front wheel facing back.
So that way you have the ability to maneuver the stroller much easier compared to BOB Gear or Joovy, they are only suitable to jog in a straight line. When you lock the front wheels for jogging, the strollers might sometime veer to the left or gear to the right for Thule and BOB Gear Flex 3.0.
You can adjust the front wheel alignment with a tile that’s next to the front wheel. But as far as Joovy Zoom 360, you cannot do that. So the adjustability for Joovy Zoom 360 is very limited. You can change the height of the handlebar on both Thule Urban Glide 2 and BOB Gear to adjust for your height requirement.
But as far as Joovy Zoom 360, the handlebar cannot be adjusted. So I am about 5, 10, 5 11. Now I already have a hard time planning Jovie on the ground while I’m running.
So if you are much taller than me or much shorter than I am, you are definitely having a hard time controlling Joovy Zoom 360 to plan the front wheel on the ground.
So it will become very unsafe when jogging with the baby inside. All right, lastly, I wanna talk about the value at the time of filming both bar gear revolution, flex three, and also Thule Urban Glide 2, they are both $550 on Amazon. Now, Joovy Zoom 360 ultra light is actually at $290. So it’s much, much cheaper than the other two. Now what I mean by value is I’m not gonna compare the price as if you going to buy the price.
Then obviously Joovy Zoom 360 has a better advantage.
Now, what I mean by value is that for Thule and BOB Gear, they are solid bill jogging stores, not so for Joovy Zoom 360 does a reason why it’s so cheap.
That’s because it’s not built as great as the other two now also for BOB Gear. And Tuli, they have a lot of adjustabilities such as handlebar, such as making your phone wheel align.
So when you are running, the car will not veer left or veer, right?
You can just go straight, not so for Jovi. And also another thing that BOB Gear and Thule, do provide you with adapters for your car seat. So potentially you could remove your car seat and put it straight onto your Jo stroller and go. So they have more adjustability and adaptability than Joovy.
My final thought about this three-stroller is that now because I have tried three, I realized there’s an issue with the jogging store when the front wheel is locked because they are facing forward.
And it’s really hard for you to maneuver when the front wheel is locked. And if you’re running a straight line, that’s not gonna be any issues. But if you have to make turns and there are curves coming up,, you try to avoid stuff.
Then by all means get truly because Thule you are able to let you lock the front wheel facing back. So that way you have more ability to maneuver the stroller than the other two. Now, this is very important because when you are jogging, you need to lock the front wheel.
So my suggestion of these three strollers is that if you’re truly looking for a jogging running stroller, then go with truly, this is the best choice of the three. Now, if money is an issue, you want something that’s price much lower, and also you don’t run a whole lot. Maybe you do occasional, um, fast walking, then go with Joovy because Joovy is cheaper. And as long as you don’t run with it is actually pretty stable. Just use it as a walking shoulder.
Now with BOB Gear here, just skip it because it’s pricey. And at the same time, when you put it in running
