Instep 5k Jogging Stroller
The 5K jogging stroller from Instep is one of the lowest priced strollers
on the market. Currently available at around $100, this stroller
is a no-frills alternative to those pricey and stylish strollers you see
almost everywhere. The Instep 5K jogging stroller does the job, but
misses some of the “extras” that make your exercise more convenient.
This stroller has a steel frame - less expensive to produce but
heavier and more prone to rust than aluminum. The wheel rims are also
steel - think of your old clunker bicycle and you get an idea of the weight
of the 5K. This is not the only
jogger instep has to offer.
Nevertheless, this stroller is not too bad when itâ€™s being used for its main
purpose - jogging. The rolling resistance is acceptable and it comes with
the standard safety features such as 5 point harness system, hand
brake, and parking brake.
But the standard equipment is all you get. There is no storage tray
underneath the seat, the handle bar does not adjust to various heights, and
the canopy is about as basic as you can get.
On the plus side, there is a fair sized storage pocket on the back of the
seat, there is a folding mechanism that works quite well, the seat is
reclinable and the design of the frame provides a comfortable ride for your
child. Other features include removable seat fabric for cleaning, quick
release wheels, safety tether, and a small pocket on the canopy for holding
money or keys. The stroller comes with a one-year guarantee.
The 16” wheels are suitable for bumpy terrain and the inflatable tires
help to provide a comfortable ride while making the stroller easy to push.
For the price, the 5K jogging stroller is a good buy. It allows you to get
back into your exercise routine with a small investment.
