Lean stroller with swiveling front wheel, rear suspension system and adjustable tracking
The Thule Urban Glide 1 is a lean sleek machine. It comes with a swiveling front wheel that can be locked in a forward or backward position, enhancing a straight line movement when exercising on uneven terrains (dirt road, sand, snow…). This double locking position feature is great because you can try both positions to find out what works best for you. When it swivels, you can maneuver better and it can literally turn on a dime.
This stroller has a rear suspension system that makes the ride smooth for the baby. The front wheels have adjustable tracking that help the stroller roll straight when locked. These features provide additional comfort for babies and parents during a run. You do not need a tool to adjust the tracking system.
Light weight and ergonomic handle bars
The Thule is light weight (weighs 23 lbs.) and has an ergonomic handle bar that can be adjusted to suit the needs of parents of a wide range of heights. This handle is not only convenient but good for overall posture, especially the back muscles. It is padded and comfy to grip.
Padded reclining seat and one hand folding capability
This stroller has a padded reclining seat that reclines to multiple positions. The seat can be reclined to an almost horizontal laying position which is especially great for outdoor naps or for on the go diaper changes. It can be reclined up to a comfortable upright position, great for curious viewing.
The thule urban glide stroller seat has a five point safety harness that is padded along the shoulders and at the crotch strap for comfort. The harness is easy to use; it adjust for height and around the waist to ensure a proper fit.
This stroller can accept an infant car seat to become a travel system. It is compatible with a variety of car seats as long as the right adapters are used. Car seat is sold separately.
Thule Urban glide can be folded effortlessly with one hand for easy storage. You can easily handle your baby while folding your baby’s stroller at the same time! All you need to do is grab the blue fold handle and lift and it will fold on its self. It is not super compact when folded, so you might struggle to fit it in the trunk of a small car.
Spacious storage and other features
The under seat storage is large and zippered allowing for storage of toys, food and more without fear of losing anything while exercising. This storage is easy to access, especially from the rear.
This stroller has many features like an adjustable multi-position canopy that protects your baby from the sun. This canopy has a mesh sun visor that provide additional protection while allowing proper ventilation. There is a viewing window on the canopy with magnetic covers that allow you to check on your child quietly without waking them up.
What are people saying?
This stroller has a 4.4 out of 5 star review from 122 people on amazon. After going through the reviews on Amazon, these are the top complains;
- No padding / cushioning on the sides of the stroller by the head.
- No auto-locking mechanism. It has a black strap that holds the stroller in place after folding but this strap according to a few parents breaks easily. Once broken, folding the stroller becomes a problem.
- Because Thule urban glide is a lean design, it might not be the best stroller for bigger kids..
Below are some reviews from amazon,
Thule Urban Glide 1, is new relative to other sport strollers like the BOB revolution se but is standing up just fine to the competition. It features big bicycle type all terrain tires, swiveling locking front wheel, a multi position reclining seat, an excellent suspension system,a big adjustable canopy, easy fold, a big storage basket and a foot activated parking brake.
