A Smooth Ride
The frame of the double jogging stroller should be lightweight for a smoother, quicker, less exhausting run. Insist on a welded aluminum frame and alloy wheels. Alloy wheels and hubs are lighter weight and more expensive than steel, but they resist rust and perform better. Stroller seats should be padded, and fully and individually adjustable so babies can nap along the way. Many double jogging strollers come with adjustable handlebars. If both parents will be using the stroller, this could be an essential feature.
For Safety's Sake
Each individual, fully adjustable seat should have a 5-point safety harness system. Shop around for a double jogging stroller with deep, comfortable seats. Some models will come with neck rolls, or neck rolls can be purchased separately. Consider a double jogging stroller with shocks if you commonly travel over rough ground. Canopies are a must for shielding babies from sun, wind, and rain. Two separate and independent canopies allow for comfort levels geared toward the needs of each child. A wrist strap or wrist tether (similar to a dog leash) helps prevent runaway strollers. Insist on a dependable brake system that is tested regularly.
Make sure the double jogging stroller you select folds up easily and fits in your vehicle or trunk. Consider weight limits, and remember that you will be carrying essentials like your water bottle, baby bottles, snacks, and diapers, which will contribute to the weight on board. Purchase your double jogging stroller with toddler weights in mind.
