Baby trend expedition sport jogger is a slick and durable baby stroller. It is made with innovative features like a lockable swivel front wheel, a deluxe parent console with covered storage, a big canopy with a viewing window, multi-position reclining seat and a tether strap, a five point harness and travel system capabilities.
Ease of use, convenience and comfort
The stroller seat reclines to multiple positions. Recline is achieved by adjusting a strap through a buckle on the back of the seat until desired position is reached. Manufacturer advice parents to use the upright position only for children 6 months and older.
Parents are also advice to readjust the harness around their kids every time the seat is reclined. This stroller is designed for children from 6 months up to 50lbs and 42” tall.
The seat of this stroller can receive an infant car seat to make a travel system stroller. The baby trend expedition sport jogger comes with a child tray that is easy to install and uninstall. It swings out to give you easy access to the stroller seat.
The child tray has two cup holders for drinks and snacks. This tray doubles as an accessory for the installation of the infant car seat.
To install the infant car seat, lift the car seat support tabs on the stroller frame and place the seat so that it faces the rear of the stroller. You must make sure that the child tray is firmly attached as the rear of the car seat will sit on it.
When the car seat has locked firmly in place, use the short clips to secure it further to the stroller through the seat belt slot of the car seat.
The expedition sport stroller has 16” bicycle type wheels which make this stroller all terrain. The front wheel has swivel locking capabilities. In the swivel mode, this stroller rolls with little or no effort and maneuvers well both indoors and outdoors.
When jogging on uneven terrain, the locked or jogging mode helps to make the stroller more stable.
As any bicycle type tire, these will become flat after some use. It can be maintained with bicycle maintenance tools. The tires should be pumped regularly to keep it rolling effortlessly.
Assembly and folding
The expedition sport jogger is relatively easy to assemble. The instruction manual is easy to understand. It has pictures to help with the assembling process.
This stroller features a trigger fold located on both sides of the handlebar. Folding is achieved by simultaneously pulling on the triggers. When folding is complete, the stroller is secured in the fold position with fold latches for easy storage and transportation.
Canopy, handlebar and parent console
The handlebar does not adjust but it is comfortable for parents of a wide range of heights. A parent console can be attached to the handlebar. This console has two cup holders for drinks and has a covered storage for personal belongings like phones and car keys.
The canopy is big and has a peekaboo window for watching your child as you jog or stroller. It extends to provide plenty of protection from the sun and wind.
The storage basket is big enough to hold supplies for you and the baby. It is easy to access from behind.
It is advisable to always check with your pediatrician before you start jogging with your baby. Babies need to be able to hold their heads up steadily with no support to minimized head and side impact as you jog.
This stroller has a foot activated parking brake on the rear axle. Press down to apply the brake and lift up gently to release. Always put your stroller on brake when it is not in motion to avoid it from rolling away unattended.
The front wheel locks to give this stroller stability, thus reducing the chance of tipping when jogging. Always lock your front wheel straight before removing your child from the jogger.
The expedition sport jogger has a five point harness with three height adjustment positions. Always install the harness snuggly around your child to ensure a safe ride (prevent them from wiggling out) in the stroller.
The five point harness is easy to put on and take off. It adjust for height and around the waist.
Another safety feature is the wrist strap which when connected to you and the stroller, keeps the stroller nearby if you lose grip of the handle. The strap should always be attached to the lower frame of the stroller.
