BOB Ironman Duallie Stroller Review
Are you an avid jogger, a fitness enthusiast, or just a simple mom who loves spending time in the outdoors? The kids love the outdoors. They certainly love to connect with nature and spend time in the garden, park or just moving across the neighborhood.
I’m a mother of two – 22mos toddler and 9mos little baby girl. I can say for sure, these kids love it in the outdoors; and going to Disney world too. Of all the time I have spent with my kids, I have never seen them as excited as they are with me jogging through the neighborhood.
The first buggy I had was pretty expensive. It offered unimaginable functionality, convenience, and comfort…and it was durable too. Unfortunately, this one was stolen at the stroller park while we were at Disney World. I had to get another stroller. This time I did not have much to spare for a buggy, so I had to limit my expectations.
Even so, I found the Bob Ironman Duallie Stroller – not so expensive, but all the quality features I thought I wouldn’t get for the price. It was impressive in terms of maneuverability, folding ease and storage and convenience features. It proved to be a practical stroller, stable, durable and high quality. I loved that it was really functional and high performing both as a stroller and as a jogger. Everything about this stroller is liveable.
I thought it only prudent to come up with a comprehensive review to share my experience. To help parents of multiple children find the best stroller. Believe you me; this is the stroller for you.
Features of the BOB Ironman Duallie Stroller
For the price, the Bob Ironman Duallie stroller offers the quality you would only expect to find in high priced strollers. It’s a durable stroller and a functional jogger that will certainly last in the family for the long haul. You will love the features this stroller comes with. Here are some of its outstanding features.
Stable, Easy to Maneuver
The bob is quite a stable stroller. It’s kind of light but really sturdy when immobile and stable when moving. The front wheels swivel to make for excellent controlling and navigation through corners.
Controlling the buggy is super easy. It’s almost as if it was pushing itself. The handles are of the right height for both tall and short parents. Wheels are lockable for increased stability whether jogging or running on a trail.
This stroller/jogger is perfect for fitness enthusiasts who want to run at a training pace, challenge themselves a bit for pushing a stroller while at it, and have their kids with them all the same. It gives exceptional stability and agility you will not find in other baby joggers.
Adjustable Suspension System
State of the art adjustable Suspension system makes this stroller move really smoothly. You will love how it glides well on difficult terrain. It’s as if you were still rolling on the flats.
The kids will barely realize that you have left the paved road and are now cruising off-road.
This exceptional performance makes the buggy a great choice for avid joggers and fitness. It gives a smooth ride when used as a jogger –running on a trail- and when used a stroller – paving your way through the city streets.
Compact; Easy to Fold
While all strollers from BOB come easy to fold and compact when folded, this Ironman Duallie edition simply surpasses them all. And probably any other double for that matter.
It folds in a breeze and assumes a compact lightweight form that is easy to transport and store away. It’s easy two step folding makes the folding experience great…and quick.
Although you cannot completely fold this buggy with one hand, you will certainly fold it unaided. Its lightweight frame and compact form when folded make transport easy. You can transfer it to the car trunk and it won’t take up much space.
Comfortable, Reclining, Padded Seats
The kids love it in this BOB. Not only is the ride smooth and relaxing, but also the seats are nicely padded for great comfort. I was amazed to see my kids sleeping in the buggy after only a few strides.
The seats are ultra-padded and are gentle on the kids back. They feature an adjustable recline for an enhanced seating position. When fully reclined, the seats make a comfortable place for the kids to have their beauty nap.
For safety, while the kids are in the seats, this stroller features a five-point harness. Harnesses too are padded for additional comfort. The harnesses give a “freedom of movement” allowance that lets the kids move a little but stay secured in the seats.
Travel System On The Go
So, you have the little one – just joined the family a few days ago- and you want to go out with your precious angel? The Bob converts into a Baby Travel System quickly and easy. It is travel system compatible and accepts the bob infant car seat adapter.
The accessory adapter lets you attach your car seat and have your baby join you in the evening walks or strolls to the park. The Accessory adaptor not only lets you attach the bob infant car seat but also other accessories like the snack tray and belly bar.
These come to upgrade your system to be a fun place for the kids. They always anticipate their time in the stroller. As a parent, you have an easy time whenever you go out for long strolls with the kids.
When it comes to storage options this buggy offers plenty of it. It’s great for the outdoor experience. The storage available lets you go for longer strolls or jog further with a settled mind. You can carry everything both you and the babies will need for the adventure.
There is a large storage basket underneath the seats. It’s large enough to accommodate even the biggest diaper bags you can carry. Your picnic basket too will go there. And there will be enough space let still for carrying other essentials.
There are storage pockets behind each seat. These are just but small storage units for carrying things like the wallet and maybe a bottle. They come in handy with things you need to use frequently. So, you don’t actually have to bend to reach the under -seat for your mobile.
