Sometimes when you are taking a ride with your little one, there are some essentials that you cannot leave behind such as diaper bags, phone, keys, drinks, snacks and other accessories. This stroller provides you with a large under seat storage, and you can easily access it from sides and back. It doesn’t have a front access. The basket is large enough to fit large a diaper bag with a maximum storage weight of 10 pounds.
There is a swiveling front wheel that makes it easy to maneuver tight turns easily. The wheel locks forward to bring about stability when you are jogging or using the stroller is relatively tough terrains. The stroller is also designed with air-filled tires on high impact polymer wheels that provide smooth rides either on or off-road.

Apart from keeping your baby comfortable, the stroller should also ensure that the parent also feels comfortable when riding. This stroller features padded handlebars that provide a comfortable grip. It also offers nine positions adjustment making it suitable for parts of all heights. Both short and tall parents can adjust the handlebars to suit their height and make riding the best experience.
We compared the canopy of the stroller with other models on the market, and this one has the largest canopy. It protects your baby from the harmful ultra-violet rays of the sun by creating a perfect sunshade. It also has a peek-a-boo window and additional ventilation when the back is reclined, and this provides a nice airflow during hot days.
The stroller is designed with 5-point harness that is easy to put, remove and adjust. As compared to other strollers, this model has red pull rings on the straps of the harness that makes it very easy to snug the harness. It also has a buckle that snaps together and opens easily.
You should always find out how comfortable the seat of a stroller is before you buy. This ensures that the baby gets a very comfortable seating position during rides. It is made with a padded leg rest and a large foot rest with a durable rubberized fabric. As compared to other previous models, the seat reclines very easy with just a push of a button.
Additionally, when it comes to car seat compatibility, BOB 2016 Revolution FLEX Stroller doesn’t arrive with any compatible car seat. However, you can purchase a car seat adapter frame to fit a car seat perfectly. Some of the top brands that sell quality adapters include Chicco, BOB and Peg Perego infant car seats.
