When buying your first jogging stroller it is important to think about all the options available to make sure you are investing in the right product for your family and lifestyle. Choose a jogging stroller vs regular stroller.
At Thule, our mission is to bring you closer to the world and your passion for life. Taking your baby with you on this journey shouldn’t slow you down, on the contrary, it should be an opportunity to share those moments with your loved ones.
For more than 25 years, Thule has been developing products that help you carry your children with you. Our range of 3 and 4 wheel strollers combine innovative, award-winning design with the best engineering in the world, ensuring our products are easy to use and comfortable for children and parents. From taura-filled trails to city streets, Thule strollers are perfect for any adventure.
What characterizes a racing stroller?
It is not recommended to run or jog with a stroller that is not specifically designed for this purpose. Thule jogging strollers are intentionally designed with 3 wheels to increase stability at higher speeds. A smaller front wheel allows for better steering and easier maneuverability. It is locked during the ride to maintain a constant line of motion and prevent the stroller from swerving on uneven ground. Our strollers are also equipped with air tires and suspensions, to ensure a pleasant walk at all times.
What are the benefits of running with a jogging stroller?
Running with a racing stroller adds some resistance to a standard ride; therefore Thule jogging strollers are designed with performance in mind.
- Lightweight aluminum frame minimizes total pushed weight
- Aerodynamic design reduces wind interference
- The large tires ensure smooth running on various terrains
- Twist handbrake aids speed control downhill and forward (supplied with Thule Urban Glide 2 and Thule Glide 2 / additional accessory for Thule Chariot)
While you can expect your average speed to be slower when pushing a stroller, our premium line of jogging models have proven their worth with unique performance. Three of our models are featured in the Guinness World Records book for running the fastest marathon and half marathon pushing a stroller.
At what age can you start jogging with your baby?
Parents can jog with children from 6 months of age onwards, although it is important to always consult a pediatrician before jogging with children under 1 year old. Our jogging strollers can be used from birth for leisurely strolls if you buy a Thule Urban Glide Car Seat Adapter (Thule Urban Glide 2 / Thule Glide 2) or a Thule Chariot Infant Sling (Thule Chariot series).
What safety features are included in jogging strollers?
Safety is at the heart of every Thule product design, and Thule racing strollers are no exception. Our lightweight running strollers are designed to be fast, but we don’t take comfort and safety features lightly. The rear suspension allows your child to follow you without jolts and the sun canopy protects him from the elements; but above all, all Thule strollers meet the strictest safety standards for your child, also thanks to the 5-point safety harness.
To make your ride as safe as possible, please adhere to the following guidelines:
- Never leave the child unattended
- Apply the parking brake when parking a stroller
- Do not carry extra children or bags with the stroller
- Beware of environmental hazards such as exposure to cold air or heat stroke
- Make sure that the child’s body, clothes, shoelaces and toys are not in contact with moving parts
How long can I use the jogging stroller?
All Thule jogging strollers are made to be versatile and allow growing children to start using them as early as 6 months and up to 4 years old with a maximum load capacity of 49 lbs / 22 kg per child. Each jogging stroller includes a 5-point adjustable harness to fit your baby after the inevitable growth spurts.
Are Thule jogging strollers easy to clean?
Thule jogging strollers can be cleaned regularly with warm water and a mild soap solution. Never use harsh detergents or solvents, as proper maintenance and care affect the functionality and safety of strollers.
