Stroller Review: BOB Revolution 2010
Filed under: Baby Essentials
The Basics: The stroller weighs 23 pounds. Good from birth to 70. 25 inches at the widest point when it's unfolded. Collapses to 37.6 inches by 23 inches by 16.9 inches.
The Lowdown: BOB's standout Revolution is by far one of the best jogging strollers on the market. The ride of the Revolution is incredibly smooth, handling every rough terrain with ease. We love the adjustable suspension, which allows the stroller to be adapted for younger or older children.
The Revolution also features a tracking knob, which allows parents to adjust the alignment of the front wheel if the stroller begins to pull in one direction. The Revolution is one of the only two strollers on the market with this feature. The adjustable tracking is particularly important for parents who do intent to jog frequently with this stroller, as it allows the Revolution to maneuver better than the other stroller model we've tried. The Revolution corners with ease and can snake around even the most crowded spaces.
The seat of the Revolution is covered in a durable canvas and we found that spilled bottles wiped up easily. The canopy is one of the best we've seen, blocking rain better than most canopies we've seen. Additionally, the canopy can be adjusted easily. The biggest drawback of the B.O.B Revolution is that the seat does not sit straight up. However, BOB recently revealed that they have remedied this issue with their 2010 version of the stroller. If you decided to purchase the Revolution, the 2010 model is far superior to previous incarnations.
