Strollers are more important than you think. Ask any parent and they will tell you that the one thing they need to be on the lookout for is their baby breaking into a crying fit. Thus, it is necessary to keep their child as happy and comfortable as they possibly can. However, parents simply can’t be expected to put their lives on hold and cater to every need of their toddlers. Keeping this in mind, strollers were invented and marketed to parents and they flew off the proverbial shelves in departmental stores.

However, parents who had twins often had to buy two strollers to accommodate their children, which was ultimately quite expensive and not everyone could afford them. Knowing this, a new product was launched that allowed parents to put both of their kids in seats at the same time, and just because you are a parent now it does not mean you can not workout or jog (run) with your babies. The demand among Parents who love to jog is huge. Fast forward a few years, and double jogging strollers have become quite the norm in society.
There are many different types of double jogging strollers available in the market today. Many people simply don’t know what factors to consider when buying this product and often end up buying the product that either looks the best or is the most expensive, not knowing that these are the last parameters that they should be analyzing.
We know perfectly well that we can’t expect parents to analyze all these aspects (and many others) when they are in the market for double jogging strollers. They have their lives and work to concentrate on and for that, we cannot fault them one bit. To assist parents in their quest to find the perfect double jogging stroller, we sat down and analyzed thousands of products before coming up with a list of four stand-out products that we feel are the best in this niche. Know full well that these items have been selected such that they will give you the performance of the highest level and will also give you some peace of mind when you put your little critters in them. Without further ado, our list of the best double jogging strollers in the market:
1. Baby Jogger City Select with 2nd Seat, Onyx Tandem Double Jogging Stroller
Baby Jogger is a brand that is synonymous with high-quality products in the world of strollers. Thus, it comes as a surprise to no one that its product i.e. the City Select with 2nd Seat is our number one pick on this list. Available in the market for a very modest 499.99 USD, this product has everything that you could ask for in a double jogging stroller. It is made from 100% pure polyester, which means that it will be smooth on your children’s skin and won’t cause any rashes or skin infections. Moreover, due to the softness of the fabric used, your toddlers are guaranteed extra comfort during their travels, which is bound to keep them in a happy mood.What we love about the Baby Jogger City Select with 2nd Seat is that it steers better than any other double jogging stroller on the market. We feel a lot of this has to do with the fact that it has four wheels instead of the conventional three. The extra wheel not only stabilizes the stroller but also makes it easier to steer and turn. Gone are the days of you gingerly navigating around tight bends to make sure that you don’t accidentally bump your stroller on the pavement and wake up your toddler. The City Select navigates seamlessly and is fluid in its motion.
Another noticeable feature of the Baby Jogger City Select with 2nd Seat is that it was made not for a family that has twins but for a family that has an infant and a toddler. What we mean by that is that its two seats don’t have the same leg space. The seat at the back can only accommodate your infant (because of the restricted space), which makes the front seat ideal for your toddler.
What surprised us when we tested the Baby Jogger City Select with 2nd Seat was that it was extremely versatile. Moreover, this double running stroller has to be one of the most portable product available in the market today. It has specialized seats that can make the transition from the stroller to your car effortlessly, while the main frame of the stroller can be folded and stashed into compact spaces. This means that you can take your infants on a family picnic in your car and have this excellent invention stored in the car’s trunk.
2. BOB 2016 Ironman Duallie Stroller, Yellow
If you think that your family needs a double jogging stroller that can accommodate children of the same size (possibly because you have twins), it is best to opt for the BOB 2016 Ironman Duallie Stroller. Made by one of the leading companies in the stroller industry, it has everything that we have come to expect from a BOB product.
This product lives up to the ‘revolution’ in its name as it has many features that we just don’t see in double jogging strollers. The best feature of the BOB 2016 Ironman Duallie Stroller is that it has a front caliper brake that is activated by a lever. This gives you unrivaled control when jogging down the hill and allows you to go for a morning jog with your toddlers and infants, which is always something that parents have wanted to do, especially new moms as they usually want to lose their pregnancy weight.
Unlike the Baby Jogger City Select, the BOB 2016 Ironman Duallie Stroller has the industry standard three-wheel formation. However, for a double jogging stroller that has three wheels, it offers unparalleled maneuverability. This means that it doesn’t bump into
pavements or street lamps when you are walking down the street. You can put your child to sleep in this stroller and go for a walk (or even a jog) without fears of your kid waking up with a crying fit, which is a bonus.
One factor of the BOB Ironman Stroller that doesn’t get discussed enough is the fact that it has one of the
most innovative suspension systems we have ever seen in a stroller (of any kind). There are 3 inches of travel as well as two stages of additional weight support, which means that your walks and jogs into town will be more smooth than ever before. Available for a moderately high price, the BOB 2016 Stroller is an option that you should look for if you are in the market for a highly functional double stroller for runners at an affordable price.
3. Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double – Green/Gray
Unsurprisingly, our list has more than one Baby Jogger product on it, but by the time you are done reading this review, you will know for a fact that its inclusion in the list is based on merit and not because we are biased towards Baby Jogger products (which we are not). Introducing the Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double, which is easily one of the best double jogging strollers that we have reviewed thus far. We know that the word ‘perfect’ gets thrown around a lot in the world of product reviews, but trust us when we say that this is the closest thing to perfection as far as double runner strollers are concerned.
The Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double has the conventional three-wheel design which means while it may not be as fluid as the other Baby Jogger product on this list, it is still great at turning and maneuvering. The front wheel is fixed on a high-quality axle, which enables parents to turn with unmatched fluidity. This makes the lives of parents much easier, especially of those who have to navigate through tight turns during their morning walks. This double jogger stroller allows parents to take their kids with them on these walks and jogs and enables them to keep a close eye on them.
What surprised us the most was how stable the design of the Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double was. We put a coworker’s child in the double stroller and asked our work colleague to walk down the street. In full disclosure, it’s worth noting that the plot across our office is being renovated and naturally, there is dirt and rubble everywhere. This means that the pathway to our office can often be a bumpy ride. However, when our workmate walked with his child in the double stroller, he was more than happy to report that his kid didn’t wake up during the short trip. This short experiment verified what we had suspected all along i.e. the suspension system of this double jogging stroller is a force to be reckoned with. Moreover, the shock absorbers ensure that your child won’t feel a bump during their time on the stroller.
Another highly praiseworthy feature of the Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double is that it is extremely convenient to store. We say this because this stroller is one of the few products in the market that can be folded with one hand. This allows parents to hold their child with one hand and fold the double jogging stroller with the other, which is something that can help new parents out a lot, especially on family picnics.
Thanks to all the features mentioned above, the Baby Jogger 2016 Summit X3 Double is a solid stroller. It is the most expensive product on this list, but looking back at the remarkable engineering behind this double stroller for jogging parents, we can honestly say that it deserves its place here.
4. BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller, Orange Side By Side Double Jogging Stroller
Anything that Baby Jogger can do, BOB can do just as well. This is the phrase that perfectly describes the competition between the two juggernauts of the stroller industry and is coincidentally perfectly fitting for the purpose of this list. Introducing the BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller, which has everything that you could want from a double jogging stroller. The thing that surprised us the most when we used this product was how amazingly it steered. Even though it has the basic three-wheel configuration, this doubhle jogger has to be one of the best products in the market as far as maneuverability is concerned. Moreover, it can be locked forward, which means that you are guaranteed stability during jogging, especially when going down the hill.
Another aspect of the BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller that we appreciate is the fact that it is ridiculously secure. We all know parents will never compromise on the safety of their children and with this product, they can rest easy knowing that it has the safest five-point padded harness, which keeps their children perfectly safe and secure. Furthermore, the robust frame of the double jogging baby stroller further protects them from any bumps that you may feel during your jogs and walks into town, which is a bonus.
What we love about this double jogging stroller is the fact that its accessories can be attached very easily. If you want to feed your children on the BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller, all you need to do is attach the snack tray (which can be put into place within 2 seconds). Or if you want to go on a road trip with your family, all you need to do is take the seats out and put them in your car. This process is as easy as it sounds since the harness of this jogging stroller comes off and attaches quite easily.
Due to all the features that we have mentioned above, you might think that this product probably weighs a lot. However, we are pleased to inform you that that is not the case. The BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller weighs only 34 pounds, which is significantly lower than most double jogging strollers on the market. Because of its low weight, it can easily be folded and transported or stored. This jogging stroller has a simple two-step folding procedure and once it has been folded, it occupies significantly less space than it did before. This makes it the ideal choice for families who live in small apartments and need all the space they can get. Due to all these remarkable qualities, the BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller is available in the market for a relatively High Price. However, if you factor in all the remarkable features of this product, you will know that for this price, it is an absolute bargain.
Now that we have presented to you the best double jogging strollers that you can pick up from the market today, we highly recommend you do a little research of your own and see which of these products suits your family the best. Before buying, we highly recommend you go to your nearest family store and try out this product before coughing up the cash. You may think that you know exactly what you want, but these products are quite expensive, so it’s probably better if you double check.
