Daddy 5-point review
Ease of assembly
Right out of the box, this is going to be a 2-minute job. The most difficult part is going to be ripping off the plastic bags and twist ties that hold a piece of protective foam to the handle bar. Unfolding the stroller only requires 2 steps: 1. Unclip the red locking device that secures the handle bar to the chassis 2. Pull on one end and viola. The two rear wheels clip into place with ease. The front wheel is a quick release so you have to line up the wheel with the holes for the axle, slide the bolt back through the holes and wheel, then screw the nut back on and you’re done!
Ease of opening and closing
Opening and closing this stroller, super easy. Grab the two clamps on either side of the handle bar then drop it forward. Next pull on the red release to collapse the stroller all the way. You can also use the red clip to secure the chassis to the handle bar. Now go ahead and toss it in the back of your car and get going. To open the stroller all you have to do is give it a quick pull or a shake and you’re ready to stroll again. Easy.
The BOB Revolution Pro Stroller is a sleek looking sport stroller. It comes in four colors: black/black, meadow(green)/black, canyon(orange)/black, lagoon(blue)/black. Even when folded up and stowed away it has an interesting and cool edge to it. If you are looking for one of the best-looking jogging strollers on the market… look no further!
The Revolution PRO is BOB’s top of the line all terrain stroller. Dare I say the Mercedes of running strollers. It comes fully loaded for all kinds of running adventures or just taking casual strolls. Super sturdy and very versatile so you’ll be able to be on the go all the time. It has hand-activated brakes on the rear wheels for maximum control when going downhill or when you need an extra bit of braking to keep your running partner safe.
It is truly an off and on-road trooper. Comes with inflatable high-impart polymer tires and a state-of-the-art adjustable suspension system that offers 3 inches of wheel travel and 2 stages of weight support, this is one of most versatile strollers on the market.
The ultra smooth ride comes with the ability to lock the front wheel in place for extra stability or keep it on the fly for turning in tight spaces.
Because parents come in all sizes the handlebar adjusts to 9 positions to perfectly fit the needs of everyone tall and short. I also switch up the handlebar height on long runs when my arms need a break from being in the same position (love this flexibility).
The seat adjusts with one hand to allow for angled seating or the completely upright view for taking in all the surroundings. Underneath the seat is an extra large storage compartment for all of their toys, supplies and maybe even a couple of your own creature comforts.
When you’re ready to get back in the car and hit the road, just a couple of clicks, a quick fold and its ready for the trunk. Easy as pie.
Hand activated rear drum brakes make for easy downhill stopping/slowing down or emergency control.
Locking/swivel front wheel. Lock it in for stability while running or doing some off road adventuring then let it swivel to maneuver around in tight spaces.
The padded handlebar adjusts to 9 comfortable heights so you can find your perfect position.
Your little one will ride along in complete comfort due to the state-of-the-art adjustable suspension system. With 3 inches of wheel travel and 2 stages of weight support this stroller guarantees an ultra smooth ride.
Air-filled high-impact polymer tires add to the smooth ride no matter where your adventures take you.
Storing it is reasonable, at best. There are 2 steps to fold this stroller up and its ready for the car or closet. There’s an added clip to make sure it stays folded and secure. The back 2 wheels are removable, at a click of a button, so it gets a bit more compact than when it’s just folded down. The price you pay for such a sound and awesome stroller is that it’s heavier and bigger than most others. Unfortunately, the BOB Revolution Pro doesn’t excel in its storing capabilities.
The seat recline or upright positioning adjusts at the simple squeeze of a button.
The seat is ultra padded with ventilation and a five-point harness to make sure your little one stays comfortable and safe.
The extra-large cargo basket gives you so much space you might even have extra room for some of your own items.
There are integrated pockets to hold those necessary snacks, drinks and other little toys.
The canopy is extra large and SPF 50+ to keep your buddy shielded from the sun or bad weather.
There’s a large viewing window, held down with Velcro, so you can keep an eye on them.
A foot-activated parking break holds the stroller in place when you need a breather.
This stroller also comes with a wrist wrap for an extra-added measure of safety while jogging.
