Baby Trend Expedition Double Jogger Review
For parents with two small children or even twins, finding a good stroller can be a difficult task. If you want to find a double stroller that’s also a jogger, it becomes even harder. If you’ve been looking for a double jogger, look no more. Check out the Baby Trend Expedition Double Jogger. It’s got a price that you’ll love and all the great features parents look for in a jogging stroller. Here are some of the best features:
Any true jogging stroller always has larger diameter wheels than a regular stroller. This makes it easier to roll over rough terrain and large bumps often encountered when traveling off-road. The Expedition Double Jogger has you covered in this department. The two rear wheels are 16” diameter, and the front is 12”. This stroller should be able to eat up any terrain you throw at it, and it performs just as well on finished surfaces.
In addition to large wheels, the best jogging strollers always have pneumatic rubber tires just like your bicycle. The reason for this is added flex and the ability to absorb smaller rocks, twigs, and other debris which results in a superior ride. All three wheels are fitted with high-quality rubber pneumatic tires, so you can feel confident pushing your kids around off-road.
Locking Front Wheel
Jogging strollers often travel at higher speeds, so a feature that adds straight line stability is a locking front wheel. This is also useful when traveling over especially difficult terrain, where you can lift up the front wheel and use the stroller as a two-wheeled cart. The front wheel on the Expedition easily converts back and forth between swivel and lock, so you always have the performance you need.
A nice safety feature on the Expedition stroller is the foot activated parking brake. Whenever you stop for a moment, you can simply press down on the lever with your foot and be assured your stroller with your kids in it isn’t going anywhere. A quick release, and you’re off again! Peace of mind is good to have no matter where you go.
Your kids will love the seats on the Expedition stroller! Each of them has independent recline adjustment, so they can be comfortable or even sleep. Both seats also feature a 5 point safety harness so your kids are also safe and secure, even at high speeds. Each seat is capable of holding children from 6 to 50 pounds, and up to 42 inches tall, so this stroller will last you for a long time.
