Jogging strollers are designs of strollers with special features for parents who want to jog or run with their child. A significant difference between a jogging stroller and a regular stroller is the three larger tires that are filled with air. You will find one tire normally at the front, and the other two at the back of the stroller. The air filled tires provide better stability and manoeuvrability when they are pushed on uneven terrain, such as gravel or dirt paths.
The larger air filled wheels of a jogging stroller also absorb shocks better than a regular stroller, providing a smoother ride for the child, even when the stroller is moving at a faster pace.
Additionally, jogging strollers usually have a fixed front wheel to enhance stability while jogging or running and prevent the stroller from turning unexpectedly. Jogging strollers also come with swivel from wheel for easier manoeuvrability and turning in tight corners.
Other features of jogging strollers may include a handbrake for added control, adjustable handlebars to accommodate different heights, a canopy for shade, and a five-point harness to secure the child in place.
In contrast, a regular stroller is designed more for everyday use and may not have the same level of durability or suspension needed for jogging or running. Regular strollers typically have four smaller wheels, are designed for use on smooth surfaces such as sidewalks or in malls, and may have features such as a reclining seat or adjustable canopy for shade. They are smaller and more compact than jogging strollers.
