The B.O.B. Revolution PRO and Revolution Flex – the Latest and Greatest of B.O.B. Strollers #BOBsays

photo 1 (9)It’s not too far fetched to say that we at MomConfessionals are a bit stroller obsessed. I, for one, am always looking for the best stroller to accommodate my family’s ever changing needs. In my defense, my obsession is validated by the amount of walking that we New Yorkers do on a daily basis. On some levels, the type of stroller we use throughout the day is more important than the cars we drive – because in the city, you pretty much get where you need to go by walking there.

When B.O.B. Invited us to come check out two of their newest products, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. B.O.B. strollers are widely known for their reliability and durablility. The company is well respected for their innovative and “revolutionary” products that are designed entirely with their active consumers in mind. This year, B.O.B. brings us even more options with their newest in jogging strollers.photo 4 (1)

Appropriately named, the new state-of-the-art Revolution PRO and equally remarkable Revolution FLEX are two of the latest strollers in the B.O.B. Family and are truly in a category all their own. I find that these new model are probably two of the best jogging strollers on the market to date. I was lucky enough to receive a sample of the B.O.B. Revolution PRO and was very excited to test it out. Being my first B.O.B. product, it took some getting used to but once I figured the stroller out, I noticed how simple and reliable it actually is.

For starters, the Revolution PRO is extremely easy to open and fold closed. I am able to do both with a flick if the wrists and in two easy steps (check out our YouTube video for a step by step guide). It’s ability to literally fold in half and leave me with a grip handle to carry my stroller makes it easy to transfer the stroller in and out of the car, or our storage spaces. The Revolution PRO comes fully loaded and is practically read to use right out of the box.

It has many excellent features which include but aren’t limited to:

  • adjustable handlebar for mom that has 9 separate positions, making it perfect for all heights
  • a hand activated rear drum brake for added security and control; especially when using on hilly trails
  • adjustable suspension and high impact polymer composite wheels for an extremely smooth ride both for you and your passenger
  • a front wheel that can easily be locked in position for a jog or released when just taking a stroll
  • padded seat that reclines for enhanced comfort
  • padded 5 point harness to secure your little one in the stroller for a safe and comfortable ride
  • a wrist strap for you to have a little extra security while jogging, which also can be used as a lock when the stroller is folded

My absolute favorite feature that this stroller has is the rather large, adjustable canopy that protects my child from the sun, rain, or whatever elements that nature can surprise me with when I’m out and about. The canopy comes with a built in window for me to keep an eye on my little guy while we are on the move. I also find the foot brake as well as the handlebar break to be extremely user friendly and provide an added sense of security that is good to have in a jogging stroller.

The B.O.B. Revolution PRO itself is durable and seems to withstand the wear and tear that a toddler or young child can cause. My son is able to stash a water bottle or snacks in one of the two pockets that the stroller provides for him, leaving his belongings accessible as needed. For added general storage the stroller comes with a moderately sized cargo basket underneath as well as a large storage pocket on the back of the seat.

The stroller comes in bright, fun, and neutral colors – perfect for any child (and parent). The lengths that B.O.B. has taken in order to ensure the safety of your precious cargo cannot go unnoticed, and will make this versatile, all-terrain stroller very appealing to everyone.  It also comes in a double stroller version.

The B.O.B. Revolution PRO is ideal children 6 months and older (up to 70 lbs) or even from birth with the use of an infant car seat adapter and compatible infant car seat, and is easily the only stroller you’ll need to keep up with your active lifestyle.IMG_1942
