The Revolution FLEX ranks as one of the easiest strollers to use in this class. Problems relating to size do reflect negatively on this product, but its maneuverability is unbeatable. For a double jogging stroller it doesn’t get much better than this.
As previously mentioned, nothing compares to the incredible maneuverability of this stroller. With pneumatic tires, turning is a breeze, even around the tightest of corners. The large wheels allow for easy movement on grass and gravel, so parents can run wherever their hearts desire.
This stroller features more storage than most other strollers of its class, which is handy for any parent running with two children. There are also inside pockets for passenger toys and snacks, and a mesh storage compartment behind the seats for easy access for the parent.
This stroller features a large canopy with UV protection and two large windows for checking on the fragile passenger. These canopies can be adjusted individually and are large enough to extend past the knees of most children.
The shoulder and crotch straps are incredibly easy to adjust, and the latch comes undone with the simple click of a button. This harness is so easy to use, it can be done one handed.
The handlebar on this stroller is perfectly sized for a jogger and can be adjusted in 9 increments. Also equipped to the handlebar is a safety strap so that the stroller remains with the parent.
As previously mentioned, the canopies on this model can be adjusted individually so that each child can have the amount of sun or shade that is comfortable for them. Each seat is also individually adjustable, and the harness is well padded for additional comfort.
At 34 pounds, this is one of the heavier strollers on the market. The heft is not felt during the run, thanks to the adjustable suspension, but it does make the stroller not as suitable for commuting.
Along with a weight problem, this stroller is also not very compact. Parents will have trouble fitting this stroller into smaller vehicles, but a larger truck will fit it just fine. The wheels are, however, easily removable to adjust for this problem,
This stroller uses poly weave fabrics that are water-resistant, and open cell padding which does not retain water. The fabric is spill resistant, and overall the product is very well machined.
This stroller is a top pick among other strollers, as long as it is not intended as a commuting stroller. The passengers remain cozy during any type of run, and the parent can bring along anything they might need for the duration of the run. This stroller is a pleasure to run with, and can hardly be beaten. BOB is a well-respected brand, with many quality products that will fit any need, so parents who are opting for a more commuter friendly stroller might consider checking out the full line of BOB products with similar features in a slimmer profile.
