This is not only a good everyday stroller but it is also a jogging stroller that comes with three different colors- Thule Blue, Dark Shadow, Mars.

The weight of the product is 23 pounds and the weight capacity of the stroller is 75 pounds. That means even 7-8-year-old kid can ride on this. In the back it has 16-inch air filled tires and the front is a 12-inch air filled tire. The jogger has all the things you and your baby need.

Benefits of Thule Urban Glide:

The tires are just awesome and they can conquer any terrain. The swivel front wheel gives you the maneuverability you want and if you choose to lock and unlock it, you can do that too. In the back, there are 16-inch wheels and when you want a jogging stroller you need to have that because not only they are going give you better maneuverability but also help you to glide the stroller. Furthermore, you will just love the rear suspension on the stroller and your kid will have a smooth ride with no bumps while you are running.

It is very important for parents to have their baby stroller wherever they go especially the shopping malls. This is where the stroller is so useful for the parents. Its one-handed compact fold makes it so easy for the parents to take it anywhere or everywhere.

When you are jogging outside you want to protect your baby from the weather. Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller provides you a nice large canopy with pop-out sun visor. The canopy is adjustable and you can adjust the canopy back and forth to protect your little baby. Of course, on the back, there is a magnetic peek-a-boo window so that you can check on your child.

The stroller has ample storage. Underneath the stroller, there is a large basket. Not only that, it has a cover on it. So you can take a lot of things and nobody is going to see your stuff. That is not the case with some of the other strollers in the market. People can actually see what you are carrying and at times you may not want that. Also, you will have two mesh pockets alongside the seat to keep small necessary things like little toys or sippy cups.

In addition, like any other stroller Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller provides an infant car adapter for babies under six months. You have to buy it separately.

What We Like/Pros:

  • Super easy to steer.
  • It will provide a risk-free ride for your baby.
  • Folding is simple and easy.
  • Quality of fabrics is great.
  • The product is well built so you can use it for a long time.
  • One of the best infant car adapters in the market.

What We Don’t Link/Cons:

  • No auto locks when you fold it.
  • You can add a lot of things to the stroller like Stroller Snack Tray, Stroller Organizer, Stroller Rain Cover, Stroller Cup Holder/Bottle Cage, and Stroller Sleeping Bag Footmuff. But you have to buy all of the things separately. So, in the end, you have to spend a lot of money in order to add those features.

Alternatives:

Now Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller is not the only stroller in the market. You can buy other baby strollers in the market as well. Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller and Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini 3W Single Stroller are two of the many strollers who are in competition with Thule Urban Glide. Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini 3W Single Stroller is a lot lighter(17.6 pounds) than Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller. So it’s a bit easier to carry. But its maximum weight capacity is lower and its canopy is not as good as the canopy of Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller 

On the other hand, Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller has a parent organizer and you won’t have to pay extra money for it. It is even cheaper than Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller. But it is heavier in weight and also its canopy is big but not adjustable. Furthermore, it does not have an adjustable handlebar. Some people may find it uncomfortable.

Last Words:

Before buying any product you need to ensure the quality of it. You may find a lot of products that are cheaper. But it does not mean that they will last longer. Often these products do not satisfy the customers. But Thule Urban Glide – Jogging Stroller will give you the quality and satisfaction. More often than not it will fulfill your needs. So if you are thinking about buying a stroller, go for this one. Rest assured you won’t be disappointed and your money won’t be wasted.
