Its product line covers babies’ lives from the first stages of the pregnancy to the infant’s preschool-grade, and they are sold in more than 120 countries on six continents. Today we will review some of the Chicco jogging stroller, ideal for parents looking for something sturdy to use while exercising, keeping their babies comfortable and secure.
Chicco Activ3 Air Jogging Stroller
The process of folding and unfolding this Chicco jogging stroller is quite fast. It comes with the possibility of doing it with just one hand. We have to pick up the canopy and press the bar behind the seat, we pull it, and that’s it, our Activ3 is folded for easy transport and storage. This stroller has the possibility of removing all the fabric so that it can be easily washed when you get to jog with it.
This model’s seat has a capacity of 50lbs. It is suitable for babies six months and older. Despite having a comfortable recline just by pulling the hook behind the chair, it is not flat for a newborn. Still, older children can take a relaxing nap without problems. It has a safety harness with padded straps to keep your baby safe and in place. The Activ3 also has a fully removable bumper bar. It also has a footrest made of a resistant plastic material that is easy to clean.
This Chicco model features a three-wheel design and is made of rubber, which is puncture resistant, so you won’t have to have an air pump every time you go for a run. The Activ3’s wheels also feature adjustable suspension, both for speed on flat terrain and for riding on uneven roads. This suspension is flexible with the feet so that this process is faster and practical when running.
For protection from the Sun, your baby will have a reasonably wide canopy. It can be expanded if necessary through a zipper to offer complete coverage. This canopy unfolds until it reaches the bumper bar and is capable of protecting your child no matter in which direction the Sun is. It has a window to observe your baby during the walk. Unfortunately, this is a window covered in plastic and not mesh, so it does not allow such a wide air circulation.
The front wheel is capable of turning 360º, giving surprising maneuverability. But since this is a stroller intended to be used while jogging, you can lock it in position. Still, this model surprises us by placing this front wheel on the handlebar so that it is an almost instantaneous process, we have to press the button, and that’s it, the wheel can be fixed and released that easy. But that’s not all. The brake of the stroller is also found on this bar. On the other side of the front brake, Chicco implemented this system to avoid accidentally activating the brake when jogging was on the chassis, as we usually see in the strollers.
At the walk’s time, we should not worry about the parents’ comfort when carrying this stroller. Since it has an adjustable handlebar in several positions that allows parents of any height to use it comfortably. This bar also includes a removable parent basket made up of three pockets, one in the middle to carry personal items such as keys, phone, or wallet, and two on the sides as ideal cup holders to have bottles of water or coffee. The storage basket under the seat is convenient; even for an off-road stroller, it is also quite accessible, even if the seat is fully reclined.
