Maclaren Jogging Stroller
The Maclaren company is well-known as the developer of the original
“umbrella stroller” - those fabulous folding strollers that take up about
the same space as an umbrella when folded. They have recently added the
Maclaren jogging stroller to their line and true to form this stroller
also offers convenience and comes with loads of features.
First off, though, this stroller comes with 12” wheels - too small for
jogging on anything but smooth road surfaces. If you are looking for a
stroller that can handle a variety of terrains like grass, sand or gravel
you need a model with at least 16” wheels.
That said, the Maclaren jogging stroller is versatile enough for your
regular workout as well as manouvering through shopping aisles. It has a
fixed front wheel - to steer the stroller around tight spots it is necessary
to pop the front wheel, but the lightweight design makes this easy to do.
Another thing that makes this jogging stroller easy to steer is its compact
size. The length of the stroller is just 45” but is still offers
adequate stability because the weight of your child is placed low between
the two back wheels.
The Maclaren jogging stroller has a folding mechanism that is easy to
operate with one hand. It folds up into a remarkably compact package and the
wheels can be removed for even greater space saving.
Other features include an adjustable handle so that adults of various
heights can comfortably use this stroller. There is lots of storage space in
the under-seat tray as well as pockets which are designed to hold keys, cell
phones and other essentials for your outing.
A nice feature is the rain cover which folds out from the canopy. Although
it doesnâ€™t completely enclose the seating area it does provide enough
protection in a light rain.
Bottom line - this is a stylish and functional stroller ideal for city use.
Although not aimed at the serious jogger it offers lots of features which
makes it an ideal all-round jogging stroller.
