When parents of newborns start making decision on whether to purchase a stroller, often the choice is between a jogging stroller and a regular stroller. But many parents at this stage do not really know the difference between the two strollers. While Jogging and regular strollers allow parents to enjoy outdoors together, they serve different needs, so it is important for parents to make the right choice.
Jogging strollers are easily recognized by big air-filled tires, bulkier size, adjustable handlebars, higher ground clearance, and additional features like hand brakes, shock absorbers, fixed or swivel front wheels that can also be locked as a fixed wheel. Jogging strollers would suit parents that would like to jog or run with their child. Because of their bulkier design, they are not suitable as a stroller for regular everyday use.
Regular strollers on the other hand are smaller in design, more compact, have smaller tires that are not air-filled in most brands. Their handlebars are smaller and may be split in two sections as in umbrella strollers. They usually do not have shock absorbers, so the ride is bumpier for a baby. Regular strollers are far lighter than jogging strollers, and easier to fold into very compact size for storage, which make them the ideal stroller for everyday use.
So there you have it. The choice between a jogging stroller vs regular stroller depends on your needs for a stroller.
