What are people saying?

Many people buy this product without knowing that it has a fixed front wheel. Once they get it and realize that the front wheel is fixed and they are very disappointed.

You hear complains like this stroller only rolls straight and is difficult to maneuver around corners.

This however is not a problem in my opinion because BOB sport utility as its name states is meant for sports not for day to day activities like shopping. For everyday use, you should by a version like BOB revolution se stroller or BOB revolution flex stroller that has a swiveling front wheel.

Further more, many people complain about the tires getting flat. Bob’s tires are pneumatic and like any air filled tires, they lick air and become flat. There is an easy fixed to this problem; tire sealants. They can seal a leak or slow it down allowing your tire to function a while longer before needing replacement.

Bob sport utility has an overall rating of 4.4 stars out of 5 from 153 reviews.

Final say 

Bob sport utility jogging stroller is a great stroller, designed for the avid runner. It has a fixed front wheel that enhance stability of the stroller even on high speed runs. It has a variety of safety features and is a super comfy stroller for you and your child.

  1. Thanks for the review, very informative. Thanks for sharing the bit about the steering, I would have been one of those people who complained about it! I am not a runner I just liked the single front wheel as it looked different. Seems it may not be that great for average day to day users like myself. Not sure I am ready to take up running/jogging yet. Thankf for the info again, I will check out their other strollers.

    1. I am happy to be of help Jodes.

      There are so many strollers on the market that it can be very confusing for the average person when shopping.

      Some strollers are designed with swiveling locking wheels, others with swiveling wheels only and others with fixed wheels.
      Each type works better under different circumstances.
      The swiveling locking wheels type is for the person who runs not so regularly and plans on using the stroller for shopping and running other errands.
      The swiveling only type is not good for running so it is designed solely for running errands.
      The fixed wheel type is designed for serious sport.

  2. Wow this is so cool. I never knew that there were strollers for running. These things are sweet. I know when you are in rough terrain it can be a terror trying to maneuver your child in a regular stroller. So this would come in handy to keep your child safe and to take a load of you.
    For my next little one I have to get one of these. A good solid stroller that is versatile is important for you and the child.

    1. Hello,

      I couldn’t agree more, try to roll a regular stroller on rough terrain is a nightmare. This is so because they turn every time they hit a bump.

      With a fixed front wheel stroller that has a tire of at least 12″ wide, rough terrains are easy to handle. They roll over bumps with ease and stay on course.

      Now, New parents can stay active after they have a baby with the help of these sport strollers.
