BOB 2016 Ironman Duallie Stroller Review 2016
The 2016 Ironman Duallie is made up of aluminum alloy, which increases stability. It weighs only thirty-four pounds but can carry about hundred pounds of weight, fifty pounds per seat. Moreover, both of its seats can be reclined up to seventy degrees, allowing your toddlers to take a nap whenever they want. For better support and relaxation, both seats have additional padding and back support and contain a five-point padded harness, which ensures maximum safety.
The main feature of this stroller which makes it the perfect jogging stroller is the fifteen-inch fixed front wheel. As a swiveling wheel moves a full 360-degree, it doesn’t help much while jogging. On the other hand, a fixed wheel easily runs while you glide around the park or other areas. All wheels are lightweight and made of pneumatic tires and tubes, which provide durability and speed. It also has a foot-activated rear brake to stop the stroller and a handbrake close to the handle bar, which helps you decelerate it.
The canopies on this stroller provide coverage of up to 125 degrees, and they are adjustable to five different positions. Each of the canopies has a peekaboo window, which lets you check on your children while you jog. Moreover, this double jogging stroller absorbs shock produced from riding on rough terrains. It has adjustable shock release knobs which allow for two different shock positions; one is ideal for weight under fifty pounds and the other for weight between fifty-one to hundred pounds.
It has the simplest folding mechanism as you can fold it easily in just two steps. The stroller can be used with infant car seats as well. As a safety feature, it has a polyester fabric wrist strap fastened to the handle. Also, it has numerous storage areas including a large basket beneath the seats, four interior seat pockets, and two big pockets on the back.
