BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller, Orange Reviews

LOVE this stroller!!! (By Amy Jahnke)

UPDATE: We have been using our Bob Duallie for 4 years now and it’s still going strong! My kids are now 4 and 5 plus we have a new baby. I bought the car seat adapter to use with the baby’s car seat. While it’s functional, my baby actually prefers just to sit in the stroller seat itself (now that she can sit on her own). My other 2 kids still love their stroller. Still plenty of room for both a 4 year and 5 year old. I have grown to love the little seat divider – keeps them from “touching” each other. They fabric has worn surprisingly well – and it gets heavy use. No rips or tears and it cleans easily. The thing I still love most – the one handed steering. I can load in all 3 kids (2 in seats, 1 on the front – that’s 100 lbs or so) and still have a free hand for coffee! We take it to Disneyland on almost a weekly basis. Both kids still comfortably fall asleep in it as well. I am so happy with our investment.

I’ll start with the seats: they have completely changed how the seats are designed. They are far more supportive and have these really nice cushion-like supports all over them. There’s even extra padding for a headrest. They sit at a much higher angle than previous models. There is even a lumbar support. The recline feature has also been revamped and is much simpler. No more buckling and unbuckling. The seat does not go completely flat, but it goes flat enough, even for an infant. Because of the change of design in the footrest area – there is actually more leg room. The 5 point harness is padded where it needs to be and easily adjustable. Something I especially like is they’ve added a little buckle at the top where the harness fastens to seat allowing you to move it higher or lower, depending on the size of the child.

Baby Planner Review (By Katie)

After six months of use as a full time nanny/baby planner:

Pros:
– Super easy to push, even with toddlers
– Turns on a dime
– Amazing shade
– Waterproof material
– Front lockable swivel wheel for jogging/tough terrain
– Peekaboo windows, but with loud velcro
– 5pt harness
– (just barely) fits through standard doorways

Cons:
– Heavy, heavy, HEAVY!!! Do not expect to be easily whipping this stroller around, it weighs a ton.
– The fold is huge, which is to be expected with this type of stroller, but makes it hard to fit in a standard sized car. Between the weight and size of the fold, it is hard to carry it up or down even a few stairs.
– It is a three part fold that requires two hands, esp annoying when you have a baby old enough to sit in the seat but not old enough to sit completely unassisted on the sidewalk
– The handlebar is not adjustable. I am tall, so this is particularly annoying to me.
– The basket is big, but it is hard to get anything big in it. There is a strap that goes right in between the two seats which makes fitting a medium to large diaper bag in it hard, and ridiculous to try and maneuver out while you are squatting on the ground in a foot of snow
– No adjustable footrest. The slope down is fine, but I imagine this will be uncomfortable when the littler one hits 12 months. Also it goes into a V, this is annoying for my tall 26mo old who has to keep his legs moved sideways or stick one leg over the side.
– Although I love the canopies, when only one section is open the material of the other one hangs down to block my 26mo old’s view or not let him rest his head depending on which section is closed
– Tall 26 month old is already getting too tall.
He has room to canopy top, but not on the seat back.
– Manual strap recline – super annoying, but versatile
– It has a shock system, but it makes the stroller incredibly bouncy, so the bumps are not hard, but they do shake your kids silly

BUY IT: if you live in a rural area and can just roll it into your garage, you want to jog with your two kids (both at LEAST 6mo old, best if 12mo and up), or you frequently encounter rough terrain with wide paths.

DO NOT BUY: if you have big children, live in an urban area, or have to carry it over more than four stairs

THE BEST!! (By Saunch09)

I can only review this stroller as an avid walker and hiker. I do not jog or run. I have a four year old and a 8 week old and they both fit comfortably and securely. My four year old still has a lot of room widthwise and lengthwise and there is plenty of head room. He has fallen asleep in it numerous times since we got it about two weeks ago. Our 8 week old fits securely and can be reclined to a good position for a newborn’s comfort and safety. The sun shades almost cover the child completely but still let them see outside of the stroller. The “peek-in” window is really wide and you can also lift the airflow flap in the back to give the kids better airflow and to be able to see and communicate with them without stopping. I LOVE THAT!
There is SO much storage, in the children’s seats on the back of the seats, and underneath. We never feel like we have to leave stuff behind.
The ride is smooth and pushing it is a dream. It also fits through most doorways!! I thought I would feel obnoxious if I had to go into a store or push this stroller around the mall or at community events but it only takes up 6 inches more in width than our single BOB. I forget it’s a double stroller.
The swivel wheel is a must for me and was worth the extra money. Look no further, this is the stroller for you!
Also, this stroller folds up so nicely that we can fit it in the hatch of our 2008 Honda Fit. This amazes me! The last double stroller I owned was a bear to get in and out of the car. This stroller is a dream to fold up and put into the car compared to others we have tried.

BOB Revolution Pro Duallie Stroller, Orange Reviews

*Mostly* worth the hype… (By Jaz)

…But still a few things that could be improved. Still on of, if not *the* best out there.
Love:
I love the way it pushes and rolls – like a cloud on ball bearings. It’s pleasantly bouncy for the kids and so nice to push, in other words, does what it’s supposed to do and does it very well. This is my third jogging stroller and my second double and there is no comparing the ride.
The adjustable handle bar is great not only because there is a 13″ height difference between my husband and I but because it can fold out of the way when folded or stored.
The hand break is great for slowing this behemoth when you’re going down a hill or ramp and it’s loaded down with kids. Why anyone would want a stroller that weighs nearly as much as you do flying down a hill with no break is a mystery to me. You’re already mortgaging your house to buy this baby for your babies. Shell out a few more bucks and save your back by letting the breaks do the work.
It folds with the tray / car seat adapter on.
Nice big sun shades with reflective fabric on the corners.
Meh:
It’s a double jogger. All of that nice ride comes with a price. It’s wide, heavy, and bit difficult to fold. It does fit in the trunk of my Ford Fusion but it is a sweaty wrestling match peppered with curses to make it happen and the rear wheels ride up in the front. No surprises there.
Locking the front wheel is a bit of a pain. There’s a tiny red lever up in front on the wheel assembly but this is bar far the hardest of the three joggers I’ve had when it comes to locking/unlocking the front wheel. If they had a little lever on the handle bar like the Schwinn that would be sweet.
Sun shades sag a bit in the middle – like there’s nothing supporting them.

Amazing stroller purchase ever (By Amazon Customer)

I love love love this stroller. It’s greatest advantage is having a hand break and two settings for front wheel. So easy to maneuver even with my two toddlers sitting inside it. My elder one is around 4y and fits so easily in it and still there is room for her to grow. My kids just love sitting in it too.

No adapter available for 2 infant seats. (By A C Onsumer)

I bought this for my daughter who is expecting twin girls in February. She has a single BOB Jogging Stroller, which I bought her 2 years ago as one of her baby shower gifts, when she had her first child, a girl. The single BOB stroller is what she picked out for the first baby as she is very athletic, and a runner, and is very happy with the first stroller. The only downside to the twin stroller is BOB does not make an adapter to install 2 infant seats in the twin stroller. I sent BOB an email requesting they design an adapter for 2 infant seats for their twin stroller, but haven’t heard back from them. Maybe if others who are having twins also request an adapter for two infant seats, it may prompt BOB to manufacture one. I gave this BOB twin stroller 4 stars because BOB does not supply/provide a twin infant seat adapter. Thanks for reading.

Legit (By ms24)

LEGIT! So a great stroller and a great ride for our twin girls. Can’t go wrong getting this stroller. If you live in an area with hills, spending the extra on one with a handbrake is WORTH IT! Babies/kids only get heavier…

Worth every penny :) (By Andrew Pritchett)

This stroller is great! It pushes like a dream, handles bumps and curbs effortlessly and all around rocks. Upon opening the box you simply have to latch on the three wheels, unfold and go. We also bought the infant carrier attachment and are pleased with how easy it is to put on and take off. So far our toddler and infant are both enjoying ridding in it, and me and my husband both look forward to pushing it (this was not the case with our old single stroller). I am a petite woman and can easily steer this with one hand while both kids are in it. The storage compartment on the bottom easily fits my diaper bag and a couple of grocery bags with room to spare.

My only complaint is that the seats are rather reclined, even in the upright position. The infant carrier attachment has a snack bar that goes across the second seat and my toddler cannot reach it when strapped in because the seats lean back so much. I also think the cup holder should come standard. It seems like if you are spending nearly $600 you shouldn’t have to shell out another $25 for something so basic. That said, it was worth the money to be able to stash a drink, a bottle, phone, keys, etc. easily within reach.

Best Double For Your Family! (By BB)

This is by far the best stroller I’ve owned.
Pros:
Very light to push, the break is awesome for slowing down hills. The Padded seats are way better than the last version. yhe canopy shade really well and it’s easy to push threw rough terrain. The adjustable handle bar is nice too.
Cons: Tires go flat monthly and The seats sag in the middle :/
Over all I love the stroller! Wish I would have bit the bullet and bought one with my second child instead of my fourth.
If you have the money and walk/run a lot, invest in this stroller!!

Great stroller, easy to use & high quality. (By JC)

We’ve been using our green BOB Revolution Pro Duallie Stroller for several months now. Before this we only had our BOB single sport utility storller with the fixed wheel. But I have logged almost 800 miles on that one so I’m pretty well versed with this line.

This stroller is easy to maneuver and very stable. We use it for our 2.5yo and 6mo boys. We had the car seat adapter on until a week ago & now the 6mo boy sits forward is the stroller seat. he likes it much better. One area for improvement would be the car seat adapter – it should let the car seat itself sit up a little more. It pretty much lays the kid down the way it is now.

Our other BOB has a hand brake and I wanted to have one again- this one works much better though as it is a drum brake for both back wheels, as opposed to a front caliper brake. A big improvement.

The stroller is of great quality and like any other BOB stroller. I do feel like the shade canopies are much flimsier than our single stroller. They are built on a plastic frame as opposed to a metal one. Other than that, all is good.

Get it, you won’t regret!

Best double jogger (By Momtomy5)

Let me start off by saying, I researched this purchase for months. Not only am I picky, I had a hard time sinking this amount of money into a stroller. After all, it’s just a stroller. I even tried out a cheaper double jogger, but it was not at all what I was looking for. So, after months of research, this appeared to be the closest thing to what I wanted and needed for my 2 year old and 4 month old.

I purchased the lagoon color, and it is even better in person. I think I’ve fallen in love with this stroller. It pushes like a dream, has an easy two-step fold, and a swivel wheel that can easily be locked in place (it’s not remote Iike some other brands, but really it’s not that hard to walk around the stroller and change it!). I love the huge sun canopies with their different adjustments. Never have to worry about sun in the baby’s eyes, and the toddler can have hers all the way up so she can see everything around her. One of my favorite features, though, is the adjustable handlebar. I’m 5’4″, my husband is 6’2″. Needless to say, an adjustable handle bar was a necessity and it’s always being switched up and down to accommodate our differing heights. The storage basket underneath and the mesh pockets behind the seats do a fine job of holding all the necessities this family of 8 needs for a day at the zoo or fair or whatever. No issues there.

Yes, I’m disappointed I had to purchase the snack tray and handlebar console separately at this price range, but oh well. I’m over it. Do note, however, not all the consoles being sold on Amazon will fit this stroller! I made that mistake. Apparently there are two models and this requires the newer one.

Overall, I really like this stroller. I can see it getting years of use in our home. I don’t think you’ll regret this purchase!

Wonderful (By Hyatt2)

We love this stroller!

Pros:
– Glides on air! It doesn’t feel like your pushing a double stroller.
– Comfortable for the kids. Our almost 2 year old almost fell asleep in it on our first time out, which is not common at all! I originally thought the shocks were a bit gimmicky, but they just add to the comfort for the child!
– Stable. When it’s stationary I have no worries of it tipping over if our son decides to climb around in it. There is also no shaking while running with it.
– High quality material. I feel like the material will be perfect in terms of durability and also easy to clean.
– Agile. With the wheel unlocked (able to swivel), this stroller can turn on a dime!
– Adjustable handle. Being 6’4 this is a MUST! I love being able to easily adjust between heights. I can’t imagine how tall you would have to be to use the highest settings (I use the 2nd or 3rd highest depending on whether I’m walking or running or going uphill).

Cons:
– Storage. I feel like there is plenty of storage, but it is tucked far underneath the seats making it hard to access easily. I realize this is the only way you can get the foot clearance necessary for jogging.
– Canopy storage. Although we love how far the canopies cover the children, when you pull them back it bunches up around their heads. I do wish they designed it better to pull all of the fabric/plastic away.
– Size. A necessary evil. You have to align it well to fit through our apartment door (but it does fit).

In my opinion, this is by far the best double stroller out there. Bob has taken its already highly coveted stroller and added some wonderful features!

The good, the bad, the good and bad… (By Jessica Coffey)

I purchased the Duallie “flex” in Lagoon… and have found there’s both good and bad.

The Good-
-The thing handles like a dream. I live on the edge of a rural area that provides the most gorgeous walks, but poor pavement and no sidewalks… I easily take this over broken roads, off the road where it’s too narrow, into grass, dirt, rocks, whatever, and my kids are comfortable and secure, and I am not fighting the stroller at all- to go, stop, or steer- it is truly amazing… so stable, so easy! It turns on a dime too, and in any situation. I push it with one hand, and same thing. Ah-Mazing.
-The shades are awesome, they extend far enough that my infant gets NO sun on her, and my 2 yr old loves being able to pull hers fully forward and “hide”, but still see mommy through the clear part.
-The seat doesn’t lay completely flat, but it’s flat enough for me to buckle in my infant daughter and then just pad around her with blankets (it’s still cool here anyway)… she sleeps our whole walk, no need for the carseat or adapter. Score!
-Set up was pretty easy
-The color is fabulous- I have two daughters. I didn’t want the dark blue, orange, green, etc… this somehow seems at least a little girlier, and is true to the photos.
-The seats are so cushy! Even the few times I hit bumps big enough that the shocks didn’t just absorb it, my girls were very well protected and comfortable in such well placed/designed pads.
-And most importantly, it seems really safe. It feels sturdy, well made, strong. I jogged it, I took it on roads and off, I opened and closed it, I watched my toddler climb on it, it just seems like a nice, durable investment that will keep my babies safe.

BOB Ironman Duallie Stroller, Yellow Reviews

perfect stroller for runners (By J. LaFleur)

before i had two kids, i ran with the bob revolution – so i debated a lot about whether to get the revolution or the ironman duallie when my second baby arrived and was ready to run with me.

here are the big pros that make me happy i bought it and not a revolution:

-hand break. this is not an option on the revolution. if there are any hills where you are running (even tiny ones) having a hand break is fantastic. i don’t fear that the stroller is going to careen out of control, and i don’t have to strain my body trying to slow it down on those down hills.

-large wheels make for a very smooth ride. i took my baby out in the bob revolution single stroller yesterday and i can’t believe how much bumpier the ride was in the revolution than it is with the ironman. big wheels definitely make a big difference.

-the sun shades are fantastic and this is important to my passengers. same as the revolution, however if you are considering another brand, these BOB ones really are superior.

the cons:

-the big con is the fixed wheel because if, let’s say, you want to quickly run into the drug store, you will have a heck of a time steering the thing. it’s possible & i’ve done it – but this is not what this stroller was designed for. the fixed wheel makes it fantastic for running and terrible for shopping! it’s great for walks to the park or anyplace that doesn’t have narrow isles or tons of other people.

-i am 5 ft even and 110 lbs – so i feel like a bit of a munchkin pushing the thing around (and always get comments from other runners/cyclists/pedestrians but that is another story) and i really have to throw my weight into the handle bar to make a sharp turn while running.
but honestly, now that i’ve been running with it for a month, i hardly notice and it feels like it fits me just fine.

-i have a tall toddler and the crotch strap is a little tight on him (he was 36 inches 8 months ago and i have no idea how tall he is now, but probably 38?).

big take away from my experience is that if you are already an established runner and you are in the market for a stroller that you’ll use specifically for running and for walks in areas that are not crowded, then this is the one to buy. this is a perfect stroller for running and will help you take your little pals along for the ride.

Twin mom must run (By C. Ketting)

When pregnant with twins, finding a stroller that would allow me to return to my running routine was essential to my physical and emotional well being as a mom. I was looking for a stroller that was designed for running, I haven’t been disappointed. It was worth every penny. My twin girls are now 16 months old and they have been in the stroller from before the recommended earliest age of 4 months, maybe because there is no head support, but my children had no problems. At the very youngest age, I ran with the seats in the recline position to keep their heads most stable. The recline position did not affect my running, although there are notes on the stroller cautioning it can tip backward more easily in the recline position. We never had a problem. At the earliest ages, we only went for short rides/runs as they didn’t like not being able to see their mama, slowly both their and my endurance built and I could always see them through the windows in the fabulously over-sized sun shades. This stroller I use for running, walks around the neighborhood, to the park, and occasional trail and beach runs.

Pros

-rolls like a dream, very smooth
-handbrake for hills
-huge sunshades
-relatively light weight for its tough build
-adjustable front wheel for straight tracking
-small storage bin beneath
-durability, no wear visible after a year+ of frequent use
-4 child accessible sippy cup holders.
-with front wheel removed, fits in the trunk of my mid-sized sedan
-reclining seats
-quick release front wheel, on and off with ease.

Cons

-bulky and awkward to load in the trunk for trips around town
-must remove the front wheel to fit in mid-sized sedan trunk
-fixed front wheel, does not swivel.

While these cons limit the strollers everyday use around town, this stroller is designed to run and for that I give it 5 stars.

Well Built Stroller, Horrible Customer Service (By JJG)

If you are looking for a true jogging stroller (fixed front wheel and 16″ wheels) to seat two children this is pretty much it. I also have a Jeep jogging stroller which seats one. The Jeep is about half the price of the single seater Ironman. It does provide a good comparison of quality, price difference between strollers. You do get what you pay for accept in customer service.

The Bob stroller is built very well. The build quality is much, much better than the Jeep.

1. Even when I hit a pace of 6:30 while running on sidewalks the Ironman feels solid; not rickety or wobbly at all. Running at a pace of 7:30 on city sidewalks with the Jeep I felt like the stroller may fall apart at any moment and after about 11 months of use and about 900 miles logged on the stroller it did just that. I hit a bump in the sidewalk while on a run and the whole stroller collapsed with child in it. There are 2 aluminum pins that hold the stroller together. Unbeknown to me one pin had already broke off. This put a lot of pressure on the one remaining pin which snapped in two.
2. The Ironman has a suspension system which makes the ride much smoother for children and makes the stroller easier to control. Sometimes my kid was bouncing all over the place in the Jeep.
3. The rubber grip on the Jeep starts to become murder on your palms if you run longer distances a few times a week. The skin was regularly peeling off my palms while using Jeep stroller. After switching to the Ironman which has a foam grip I haven’t had any issues.
4. Surprising to me the Ironman Duallie with 2 children in it is easier to push than the Jeep with one child in it. It is most noticeable to me when I run up inclines.
5. The material on the Ironman is a little nicer than that on the Jeep.

BOB Stroller Strides Duallie Fitness Stroller, Red Reviews

God’s gift to active mothers! (By Toni Perkins)

I can’t rave enough about this stroller. It is amazing! I have a 5 year old, a 2 year old, and a nearly 4 week old. When I take this bad boy shopping, all three of my kids can fit because my five year old just sits on the front footrest above the wheel. I have also taken it on several runs now, minus the 5 year old, and this stroller pushes like a dream. It is so light weight and really just glides along. It turns on a dime and doesn’t do the weird shimmy and shake thing that many other jogging strollers I have tried do.

One thing to be aware of is that this sucker is HEAVY. I have a big 4 wheel drive truck with a leveling kit on it and it takes everything out of me to pick this up and stick it in the bed of the truck. That really is the only downfall, which I really don’t consider a negative considering all of the other wonderful things this stroller does. Well worth the money!

Worth the Money (By Amazon Customer)

After having the single and doing a lot of hands-on research we decided to stick with B.O.B. brand and get the double. I went running with a lot of moms with other strollers, tested some out in stores, and asked questions everywhere I went in stores. It seemed too bulky at first, but overall isn’t any bigger than the others. Our single we have had over two years- it has gone on 31 flights (on/off lower storage on planes), been in three color-runs, 3 off trail breast cancer runs, hiking Yosemite/Tahoe, and endless trips around towns. We had one flat tire after a 5k run off road. i was never dissatisfied with the single and the double is proving the same. You MUST measure your vehicle though. I have seen low reviews on it not fitting, but that could be prevented by taking 5 minutes to measure your vehicle. If you must the wheels are very simple to pop off and on. There is nothing on the market like B.O.B brand strollers for the cost. R.E.I. will service/repair B.O.Bs in their bike department if needed, and sell all the attachments if you want to make sure they fit.. and I have always had great customer service regardless of not buying them there.

Worth every dollar! (By ParentstoGandJ)

This stroller has given me the confidence to jog 4.4 miles up from my usual 2.6 in less than 2 weeks. My daughter dropped her stuffed animal on a jog, so being a good dad I had to go back and find it. This made my jog about 2 miles extra than normal. If I was using my old Graco travel system I would of just gone home, but with the BOB I wanted to stay outside longer and get more exercise.

It has been two weeks since I have been using this jogger and I’ve ran about 15 miles, and every time I think to myself, “Man this thing is worth every dollar I spent on it.” Overall, excellent product, my daughter falls asleep in it and loves being in the nice seats, and wait til you feel the suspension.

Only downside is the bottom storage compartment isn’t the largest.

Stop your research and buy this one! (By Amy Wilken)

I have waited for over a year to write this review because I wanted to make sure that I had enough experience with this stroller before letting other people know about it. I researched double strollers for at least 3 months before purchasing this stroller. I just couldn’t imagine paying this much for something that I was going to use with my kids. However, I am SO glad that I did! My kids are now 3 and 1. I push them in this thing everywhere. Just today we walked to the park. I used one hand to push and the other was holding my water bottle. It is easy to push people!!! I have had no problems pushing this thing. Of course going uphill sucks, but it sucks with out a stroller too. It fits through doorways with no problems, so you could take it shopping. I just choose not to shop with my two little ones. The basket underneath is big enough to put the things that you need to have with you when you have small kids. I have had a small cooler, two small bags of different snacks, and a small diaper bag in the bottom. I haven’t had much need in using the netting behind the seats, but they would hold items that weren’t too heavy. I have even used this stroller with three kids on it. Two in the seats and then one where the feet go. My son actually sits on the front part of the stroller all of the time. My husband has taken the kids running with him a couple of times and he is not a fan of putting the lock on the front wheel. He states that it is too hard to turn it. This is how every running stroller is though, so I wouldn’t hold it against this one. Overall, I am saying, stop your research and buy this one.

THIS IS IT! Glides like butter, easy to move, push, good for tall & short people! (By wishiwasatiki)

LOVE THIS STROLLER!!! Was nervous about getting a $$$ double stroller on-line without trying, and no local stores had it to try out, but thrilled with the purchase! Relied on reviews and a best friend who rave about it!
What I LOVE: Super easy to move, glides and turns beautifully on walk mode (also has a jog mode), kids are comfy, plenty of leg room without tall toddler’s feet tangling in a wheel! The harness/strap is solid, there are great sippy cup mesh pockets right by the kids, great console for parent stuff- 2 water bottles and a wallet/phone good size section- can hold snacks for all, and easy for grandparents to use too!!! The wrist strap is a great safety device, and I love the easy to set & secure brakes, and independent canopies, peek a boo parent windows, the kids can lean forward and chat or steal each other’s snacks- get the tray, totally worth it… fits well in the back of an SUV. Yes, a little heavy but it’s a double stroller! It’s a super smooth ride- even on bumpy terrain- we walk where tall trees uproot sidewalks, so the great shocks are fantastic!!!

HEIGHT: I’m 5’9, hubby is 6’1- so many strollers are too short, this is great for all heights!

What I’d improve- more head room for tall kids (40″ 3 year old’s head brushes top) but no complaints, or the ability to remove the top canopy for a tall kid. It IS wide but it’s a DOUBLE wide stroller, so that’s like complaining about water being wet… It CAN get in and out of standard doors, it’s just a tight squeeze. I wish it was a little easier to do the 2nd step folding up but it just takes a little work, not enough to bump down to 4 stars.
