-rolls like a dream, very smooth
-handbrake for hills
-relatively light weight for its tough build
-adjustable front wheel for straight tracking
-small storage bin beneath
-durability, no wear visible after a year+ of frequent use
-4 child accessible sippy cup holders.
-with front wheel removed, fits in the trunk of my mid-sized sedan
-quick release front wheel, on and off with ease.
-bulky and awkward to load in the trunk for trips around town
-must remove the front wheel to fit in mid-sized sedan trunk
-fixed front wheel, does not swivel.
While these cons limit the strollers everyday use around town, this stroller is designed to run and for that I give it 5 stars.
here are the big pros that make me happy i bought it and not a revolution:
-hand break. this is not an option on the revolution. if there are any hills where you are running (even tiny ones) having a hand break is fantastic. i don't fear that the stroller is going to careen out of control, and i don't have to strain my body trying to slow it down on those down hills.
-large wheels make for a very smooth ride. i took my baby out in the bob revolution single stroller yesterday and i can't believe how much bumpier the ride was in the revolution than it is with the ironman. big wheels definitely make a big difference.
-the sun shades are fantastic and this is important to my passengers. same as the revolution, however if you are considering another brand, these BOB ones really are superior.
-the big con is the fixed wheel because if, let's say, you want to quickly run into the drug store, you will have a heck of a time steering the thing. it's possible & i've done it - but this is not what this stroller was designed for. the fixed wheel makes it fantastic for running and terrible for shopping! it's great for walks to the park or anyplace that doesn't have narrow isles or tons of other people.
-i am 5 ft even and 110 lbs - so i feel like a bit of a munchkin pushing the thing around (and always get comments from other runners/cyclists/pedestrians but that is another story) and i really have to throw my weight into the handle bar to make a sharp turn while running.Read more ›
The Bob stroller is built very well. The build quality is much, much better than the Jeep.
1. Even when I hit a pace of 6:30 while running on sidewalks the Ironman feels solid; not rickety or wobbly at all. Running at a pace of 7:30 on city sidewalks with the Jeep I felt like the stroller may fall apart at any moment and after about 11 months of use and about 900 miles logged on the stroller it did just that. I hit a bump in the sidewalk while on a run and the whole stroller collapsed with child in it. There are 2 aluminum pins that hold the stroller together. Unbeknown to me one pin had already broke off. This put a lot of pressure on the one remaining pin which snapped in two.
2. The Ironman has a suspension system which makes the ride much smoother for children and makes the stroller easier to control. Sometimes my kid was bouncing all over the place in the Jeep.
3. The rubber grip on the Jeep starts to become murder on your palms if you run longer distances a few times a week. The skin was regularly peeling off my palms while using Jeep stroller. After switching to the Ironman which has a foam grip I haven't had any issues.
4. Surprising to me the Ironman Duallie with 2 children in it is easier to push than the Jeep with one child in it. It is most noticeable to me when I run up inclines.
5. The material on the Ironman is a little nicer than that on the Jeep.Read more ›
