Being a mom isn’t easy these days. You have to go to work, do house chores, look after your child, and look after yourself. It’s hard to squeeze so many different activities into a single day, so some moms have to do multiple tasks at once.

Well, if you are the type of mom that likes to get everything done and have the time for a morning or an evening jog, then you should consider purchasing a good-quality jogging stroller. The bob revolution flex is a great choice and might be what you are looking for.

Let’s make things clear right away – this is a fantastic stroller with features like a large basket, responsive braking system, a weight capacity of 75 lbs, sturdy frame, large canopy, forever air tires, and many more. It also works as a travel system with a simple adapter that works with most popular car seats. Time for a more in-depth look at what this excellent stroller has to offer!

Features

  • Massive Canopy

The canopy on the bob revolution flex is not only massive, but it’s also very stylish. The canopy on the Lunar edition is made of special reflective fabric that keeps you visible on the road. In fact, this is among the best canopies we’ve seen so far. There are two retractable panels. The back panel has a plastic peekaboo window with a Velcro closure system.

  • Adjustable handlebar

The handlebar has nine available positions that vary in height anywhere from 34 to 45 inches above the ground. The entire handlebar is padded with soft foam that provides a better grip and increases comfort.

  • Safety wrist strap

Since this is a jogging stroller, it comes with a runaway wrist strap. It’s attached to the handlebar, and it keeps the stroller strapped to your hand, in case it runs away while you are running.

  • Roomy seat

The seat has lots of room. It’s 14.7 inches wide and 23 inches tall. The soft padded seat offers maximum comfort and support to your child. The material on the seat is easy to wash and very durable. The recline is deep, but not completely flat, so it’s suitable for children of 6 months and up. You only need one hand to pull the seat down, but you’ll need both to put it back up.

The weight capacity of the seat is an amazing 75 pounds. That may be a little too much, but it only talks about the sturdiness and durability of the bob revolution flex.

  • Storage pockets for the baby

The two mesh pockets located inside of the seat are ideal for holding toys, snacks, and a sippy cup.

  • 5-point harness

The 5-point harness is a standard feature for many strollers, and this one has it too. The cool thing about this one is that you can adjust the harness without re-threading it. The padding on the harness is very soft and comfortable. The only thing that could be a problem is the buckle because it’s easy to release.

  • Storage pocket in the back of the seat

Real moms need as much storage space as they can get, and this stroller was designed with that in mind. The zipper pocket on the back of the seat can hold a fair amount of smaller items like keys, snacks, phones, water bottles, and so on.

  • Large storage basket

The basket is great! It’s very large, and it’s placed close to the ground so that you can fit plenty of stuff with ease. It’s an uncommon feature for a jogging stroller, but hey, no one is complaining. The basket is also easy to access from the back, so another plus!

  • Huge wheels

The bob revolution flex has three wheels; one 12″ wheel in the front, and two 16″ wheels in the back. All of them are made to be very durable and can’t go flat. That means that you can go jogging offroad without worrying about the stroller falling apart. The front wheel is swivel, but it can be locked straight when going over rough terrain.

  • Adjustable suspension system

This is by far the best suspension system we’ve ever seen! It keeps your child leveled and asleep even when you go for a jog in the woods! You can adjust the system depending on the terrain you encounter. Your kids will love it!

  • Foot brake

The brake is operated by one foot as it controls both wheels simultaneously. It’s easy to work, but wearing flip-flops is probably not a good idea. Otherwise, it does the job perfectly.

  • Easy to fold mechanism

The folding is easy to complete, and it takes only two steps. You’ll need both hands to do it. When you fold the stroller up, you need to use a clip to hold it in place. The stroller won’t stand when folded, so you’ll need to lean it against something. Once folded, the dimensions of the stroller are 39″L x 25.5″W x 16″H, which is a little large in our book. However, you can take the rear wheels off to make it a little smaller.

What’s wrong with the product?

– No automatic lock

The lack of an autolock system is hard to explain with so many other great features.

– Large when folded

The stroller does fold, but even so, you need lots of trunk space in the car.

– No accessories

Everything on this stroller is great, but things like a cup holder and a bumper bar would make it even better!

Conclusion

If you are the kind of mom that likes to stay fit, the bob revolution flex is as good as jogging strollers get. It’s safe, it has large wheels that can tackle any type of terrain, it’s super comfortable due to features like the suspension system, and extra padding, and it’s also very stylish. The Lunar edition has a unique fabric designed to reflect light in the dark. It’s definitely one of the best strollers you can buy.
