BOB Revolution SE Jogging Stroller Review

a Rafflecopter giveaway

This giveaway has been drawn 🙂 Winner was B Coleman (congrats you!). Below review is still just as valid though.

B.O.B. Revolution SE stroller through its paces. We packed up the kids and headed to our local Roadcraft Driver Education centre.

After completing my stretching exercises with my donned helmet (safety first), we began.

The idea was to strap Miss1 in and belt around the outside of the primary school bicycle road circuit, comparing times with no stroller, old stroller and lovely, new, ‘OMG it’s gorgeous’ BOB Revolution SE stroller.

Now before I go on I think perhaps I should mention, the reason Tracey umm’d a bit when she saw the box was for a jogging stroller is I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, an athlete. I cycle, yes. Often. But I don’t run. I don’t jog. I don’t dart, sprint or skip. I did managed a trot several months ago, but it didn’t go well. Walking is what I do, and often under sufferance. So my plan was to power walk my way around the course.

Oh, I also don’t power walk.

“Go!” yelled Tracey, with just a little too much of a smile on her face for my liking. To make things more interesting my kids had lined up on their bikes to race me around the track. Miss9 had even volunteered to play medic if I needed one, which was a lovely sentiment.

My first lap was competed in 1.35 minutes.

“Two to go,” grinned Tracey.

It suddenly occurred to me Tracey does most the pram pushing in this family: she should be doing this.

B.O.B. Revolution SE is bigger and we have limited space in the Paj (wouldn’t be a problem in a normal car or with a normal sized family). However, I’ve just timed myself in the kitchen and when it’s collapsed it takes an extra four seconds to remove the side wheels (nine seconds in total to collapse it) and a total of eleven seconds to snap the wheels on and deftly flick the stroller open – everything just clicks beautifully into place.

Yes, this is a stroller for joggers, but I have to say it’s also a damn good piece of kit just for pushing your bundle of preciousness around town. Well done, Bob, whoever you are. Your stroller is a winner in my books.
