For most double jogging strollers it can be a task trying to find the right one, especially if you have children that are different ages, as most joggers will have balance and performance issues. Here we talk to parents that have actually taken this model out for a spin on a number of different terrains, in order to put this model to the test.

What Parents Had to Say about why they loved it
Parents that reviewed this model seemed to be happy with it; with the feature they loved most being the lack of effort they needed to get the jogger moving and how well it traveled on all types of terrain. Consumers said that this jogger not only traveled well but that it also provided an enjoyable and comfortable ride for their children. Parents loved the front wheel lock and the unlock button, which is located on the handles. This feature makes for an easier transition when changing terrains as it allows you to continue pushing the jogger without having to stop and bend over to unlock or lock the wheel. One of the joggers other great features is the fact that it doesn’t pull towards one side when there is a weight difference in each seat. One consumer noted that having a newborn and a toddler in the model at the same time didn’t cause any issues with the way the jogger performed. With all of these features included, this is still a reasonably priced model that received very positive ratings from parents.
