Although this was my first time with an actual , it seems just right for me. It’s has great traction and is quite easy to push.
My initial concern was that it was going to be a challenge to get turned on uneven terrain, but it really is easy enough to turn… and my son is very happy with his new limo… though he usually is fast asleep!
But there’s More to Jogging Strollers
Than the average shopper would think… so when we decided to check out the BOB Sport Utility Stroller we knew we had a lot to look over.
Being far more reminiscent of a mountain bike rather than a street bike, the BOB Sport Utility Stroller conjures up one word labeling along the lines of rugged, stable, and maneuverable.
This jogger stroller sits atop a sturdy aluminum frame that includes adjustable shocks absorption, which in turn results in an outstanding suspension structure that produces a comfy cruise for baby, even on dirt paths.
Knowing how you’re going to be using a baby stroller is a big step in finding and getting the stroller that you will be happy with. So let’s first get the details on the BOB Sport Utility Jogging Stroller.
If you’re an active parent and looking for a baby stroller to keep up with your lifestyle, you’ll want to take a serious look at this one because among other things this stroller is built to last you through several kids and all kinds of terrain.
We know that trying to find good used strollers is not an easy thing to do and there is a reason for this… people keep them in the family for several kids and even grand kids.

The padded seat is made from long lasting, stain-resistant polyester, while the shoulder harness is padded for additional comfort.
Cozy and comfy are vital key elements for any child riding along if you want to keep your outdoor fresh air and exercise time from being uninterrupted by a cranky infant who’s not enjoying the ride.
What the BOB Sport Utility Stroller Brings to the Table.
The stroller is designed to go anywhere that offers a great solution for those active parents that want to get some jogging in without having to wrestle with the stroller if they want to get off the beaten path.
Construction & Function:
|First of all the fixed front wheel offers excellent off-road performance. Fixed front wheels aren’t the best for those excursions to crowded malls… but remember we’re talking about using jogging strollers here right?|
|Rear suspension has 3 inches of travel which means a smoother ride (and happier baby) whether on or off the road|
|Easy folding for storing and travel. You don’t want to spend your outdoor and exercise time in a grudge match with a stroller just trying to get it out and put it away.|
|16-inch inflatable wheels for optimal performance between being off road or on.|
|Tough welded type of frame that is built to take it and last.|
|5 point padded harness that is sewn directly into the fabric of the seat and attached to the frame for even additional strength and safety.|
|Rear wheel (foot activated) parking brake to make sure your stroller doesn’t go unless you’re ready for it to go. It locks up both of the rear wheels for you.|
|Hand activated front wheel brake that allows you to control the speed of the stroller on those downhill grades.|
|The padded back seat reclines while you’re on the go and nap comes on the little one.|
|A large fully adjustable and positioning canopy that provides comfort and shelter from Mother Nature’s outdoor elements.|
|Storage pockets on the back as well as on the sides of the seat to handle all of baby’s and your can’t go without essentials.|
The BOB Sport Utility Stroller Ain’t No Mall Rat.
If you’re looking for a stroller that shines its brightest in the jungle known as the mall, then this isn’t the stroller or the stroller class that you should be looking into.
The BOB SUS is an outdoor kinda guy and is quite serious about it… and you should be too if you’re looking at buying this stroller.
Even though the BOB Sport Utility Stroller is a fixed wheel stroller, even with its 16-inch inflatable tires, it still remains quite maneuverable over all types of outdoor terrains.
How tightly a strollers tracks is a very important feature for the active parents that put their strollers through the walking and jogging paces.
If a stroller tracks loosely and has a tendency to drift from one site to the other, it makes it difficult to enjoy your jog or walk because you’ll constantly have to keep wrestling the stroller to keep it on the straight and narrow.
The BOB SUS features an adjustable tracking feature that adds more comfort as it minimizes this annoying drift as you walk or jog.
So what are the downsides
Wheels and maneuverability are probably the probably the single most important feature when it comes to picking out the right stroller for your lifestyle.
By in large the most common lament (and there aren’t many) of the BOB SUS is that the front wheel is fixed and this makes it more difficult to turn as opposed to a swivel wheel.
Keep in mind what and why you are looking at this class of baby stroller. If you do any type of fitness walking and especially jogging, you will not want anything but a fixed wheel.
When you are out getting your fresh air and exercise with your baby, the last thing you want is to have a swivel front wheel that wobbles all over the place.
Swivel and non-fixed front wheels are great for those casual strolls through the malls and tight crowded places because they are designed for the “turn on a dime” environments, but this type of design is relatively useless for outdoor activities.
No parent wants to have to buy a stroller for every type of environment and scenario, but the BOB SUS offers a very nice alternative.
The bottom line is… if you lead an active lifestyle this stroller offers a good blend of toughness and maneuverability.
What are the folks saying
Babies come in all different shapes and sizes and parents come in all types of when it comes to what features and functionalities are the most important to them and what they use their strollers the most for.
