Feature BOB Revolution Double Stroller SE Duallie
My needs were pretty simple in looking for a toddler stroller that would hold up to travelling on non-paved surfaces. There are tons of walking paths around my county so I wanted to start using them once I had my second baby. With a two-year-old as well that sealed the need for a dual stroller.
As a premium product, you can expect tons of great features in this stroller and you won’t be disappointed if you expect that. The Bob Double Stroller Car Seat Adapter is packed with quality features and most of them are necessary. It is not a stroller that offers unnecessary features. The features are important and you will be benefited from most of those. Let’s see some of them in details.
Maneuvering has always been an issue with almost every stroller that is out there in the market. This is a problem that even car and bus have to face so you can expect that a stroller will face it too. If you use this stroller, you won’t have to think about maneuvering anymore as the stroller has a brilliant technology to take care of it. No matter how tough the corner is, this stroller will make things easier for you. The reason behind this beautiful result is hidden in the front wheel. Then front wheels are swiveling which means that they can rotate three sixty degree if required. This is not all, they can also work on any surface no matter whether it is mud or tiles.
Suspension is something that is not only important for the baby who is inside the stroller but also for the parents who are holding the stroller with their hands. Think of the scenario for a second. You are holding a stroller which is bumping all the way and both your kid and your hands are shaking because of that. Your blood circulation along with the baby health will be miserable if that happens and that is why this stroller is picked by a lot of people. They know that this stroller has a suspension system which will make sure that your hands or even the stroller does not move even if it is in a bumpy road.
Great body is something that offers you immense safety and that is exactly what you are going to get from this stroller. The stroller is compact as it is made of things such as aluminum and alloy. Plastic has not been used in this stroller and that gives it durability. The aluminum is the perfect thing for a stroller as aluminum is durable and consumer friendly. Therefore, the body will hardly get affected no matter whether you face accidents or not. You can keep this Bob Double Stroller Car Seat Adapter for a long time if used properly.
We always tell that you should think about extra benefits while you are purchasing a stroller as extra benefits come in handy in different phases of your stroller’s life. This stroller has warranty and all those necessary features but those are not extra ones. The extra ones can be considered as water proof technology, locking features, harnesses, shades and many more. Overall, you will be having a feel of a winner while you are using the stroller.
Every time I buy some new baby gear I take a little time to familiarise myself with that item. My dad always said, “proper preparation keeps you out of trouble.” I never had the heart to correct him on the saying. So here are some of the details concerning the bob revolution double stroller.
This side by side double stroller is a beast in the construction department. The bob stroller parts, especially the suspension system, are built strong and that makes the stroller a durable piece of gear. The manufacturer states that the frame is made from Chromoly and aluminium. Of course, the strong durability also adds to the weight of the stroller. I’ll have more on this later.
Keeping the tykes in places are a five-point harness system. This seems to be the norm for most strollers. There is your standard parking break feature that holds the stroller in place well enough. I like the wrist strap that doubles as a securing strap for when the stroller is folded up.
I realise that when out jogging, the kids are going to bounce around a bit, especially when on uneven ground. The bob revolution double stroller has coil spring and (manufacturer speak incoming) elastomer core shock absorbers built into the stroller. This system gives a nice bounce to the stroller when on the trails. The suspension has the option to allow the system to be adjusted depending on the weight in the stroller. There is also a five-position canopy with a wide range of coverage that will protect the riders from the weather and sun.
Car Seat Integration
The bob revolution double accepts the BOB Car Seat Adapter, but I do not have a BOB car seat, so this feature has not been used. In place of the accessory adapter, a snack tray can be added on.
The bob revolution double stroller has ample storage, or at least it has never been an issue for me on my trips. There are several seat pockets, two seat back pockets and the large space underneath.
Putting the BOB Through Its Paces
Time for another spoiler alert: I love this stroller. I have been using it on my exercise runs over the summer and have had no issues that made me regret my purchase. The stroller seems to be a workhorse in the durability department. My kids enjoy the ride and enjoy the bouncing motion while I’m on the trails. I will admit that the suspension can be a bit floaty and the kids seem to bounce a bit more than I expected. I find that if I slow down on the rougher ground, the excessive bouncing is reduced. Of course, I could have sworn my two-year-old said “faster” the one time we were out and about. But that could have been my imagination.
If there was one caveat I have to write about, it would be that the stroller is pretty heavy. The stroller clocks in at 34 pounds according to the manufacturer’s specs. Before I had my second child I had a bob ironman and just got used to that I guess. Naturally, a double stroller was going to be heavier. This has not been an issue, but for those who may have issues with heavier strollers, I just want to make a note of it.
The trails I jog on running the gamut from paved straightaways to windy, dirt paths. I have found that the revolution stroller is very manoeuvrable and is a breeze to steer around any obstacles. I know you can lock the front wheel for stability when running or when hitting rough terrain. I have never taken the time to lock the wheel, but I do not really run that fast where stability becomes a concern.
When it comes to folding and storing, the revolution goes pretty quietly. The manufacturer claims it is a two-step process to fold up, but I find (and some other reviews agree) that it is more of a three step process. Here is the where the heavier weight of the stroller might be problematic for users. I’m relatively strong, but putting the stroller in my SUV can be a bit of a struggle when dealing with other items.
Also, for those instances when the kids spill their drinks or make other messes, the fabric on the seats cleans up nicely. A few wipes and your good to go. This is one area where my kids excel. They are the masters of a mess.
So, would I recommend the bob revolution for those on the market for a new stroller (or a used bob stroller)? The answer is yes! When I was looking for a jogging stroller my search ranged from a bell jogging stroller through the bob duallie stroller. Every stroller I read about had there pluses and minuses, but at the end of the day, I settled on the revolution. This stroller has been a great purchase for my kids. I did blink when I saw the MSRP for the first time, but when I started digging I found a great deal through a major online retailer. In the internet age, you should never have to pay the MSRP.
So you might be saying that she sure sounds like a cheerleader for the bob revolution double stroller. My response is yes I am! When I find a great bargain, deal or item I want to let everyone know about it. So keep this review in mind when looking for your next double stroller!
It is really tough to find a stroller in current market which is so easy to handle. This stroller is waterproof, easy to move and the harness along with pick a boo window makes things interesting for the kid. Overall, this is a good one to go for unless you have to think about budget.
