What we like about this stroller
Ease of use
With front wheel measuring 16″ and rear wheels 18″, this stroller literally glides with very little effort. It has a conveniently placed hand brake that makes this stroller save for jogging. Thule glide folds compactly and easily with one hand; a great feature that allows for multi-tasking.
Thule glide can easily convert into a travel system stroller with the use of proper car seat adapters and car seat.
The fixed front wheel is a great feature that allows for straight line motion which is very important during jogging or high speed running. It has a front wheel tracking adjustment knob that can be used to align the strollers.
This stroller is very comfortable for both parents and babies. The seat is designed to recline to an almost horizontal position. This feature is great for those out door naps for baby and routine diaper changes.
Padding on the seat makes the ride very comfy for your little one and the vented top allows for cool refreshing breeze to flow in; so no over heating or sweating for junior.
The ergonomic handlebar is perfect because it assures comfort in terms of posture for parents of a wide range of heights. In fact, this is a great stroller for very tall parents.
Thule’s conveniently located hand brake is very effective at stopping the stroller during a run even on a steep road. The five point safety harness secures babies in the stroller comfortably.
The multi- position canopy helps protect junior from the elements, especially harmful UV radiation. It has a peak a boo window through which you can check on junior without alerting him/her.
The Thule glide stroller provides just enough storage for the important things you and the baby will need during the run. You have to remember that Thule glide is not designed for shopping, the concept here is ‘sport’ so it doesn’t have a big storage.

What are people saying?
Most people love their Thule glide so much. It seems like most of the people who bought it were aware of the fact that the front wheel is fixed. There are a few people who have had some issues with the alignment but most people say the alignment is great.
This stroller according to some people does not have enough cushioning but the majority of Amazon reviews is good for this stroller.
Thule glide is an amazing sport stroller that will make your exercise a breeze and make riding a joy for you and the baby. It is packed with important safety features like a hand activated parking brake, five point safety harness, an adjustable handlebar and canopy, fixed front wheel, rear wheel suspension and one hand easy fold.
Thule glide is the stroller for the avid runner. If you are not an avid runner but jog occasionally and need a stroller that will work both for running errands and jogging, try the Thule urban glide 1 or 2.
