Top 5 Jogger Prams

Top 5 Jogger Prams

If you’re one of those mums that can’t wait to get outside for long walks, or even a jog around the neighbourhood, then this post is just for you.

Jogger prams have been designed to give your little one an easy ride, while you get the luxury of being able to walk or run with ease.

The difference in these compared to your regular pram can be found in the suspension, the freer movement of the front wheels and extra sunshade and secure straps for your little ones.

Features to Look Out For

Before you even start looking for the perfect jogging pram for you, it’s important to know what features you are on the hunt for. The biggest one for you to consider is what type of wheels are best suited to the outdoors.
Typically, jogging prams will have three wheels: one at the front and two at the back. This is a contributing factor to what makes them so easy to push across all terrains. The bigger they are, the better they tend to move, but of course you need to balance this need with how big you are willing to go, while still being able to fold the pram up to fit in the boot.
Here are some of the wheel options out there:
Standard rubber tyres: these are geared more towards smooth, flat surfaces, such as the shopping centre!
Air-filled tyres: tube tires are well-known for being great on rocky terrain. It’s the same as bicycle wheels, giving a smoother ride. Of course, you do need to make sure you have a bike pump on hand when the need arises.
Pneumatic tyres: their reinforced rubber tires are filled with compressed air and are well known in the jogging pram world. They are geared for all types of terrain, making them a top choice.

Other features you want to consider:

Locking front wheel: this makes it easy to job on designated tracks.
Big basket: you want to ensure you aren’t stuck carrying everything while pushing the pram!
Big sun canopy: if you are planning to be outdoors a lot, then this is a must to protect your child.
One handed steering: this makes it much easier to push while you jog.
