Choosing A Jogging Stroller: The BOB Revolution PRO vs. The Thule Urban Glide

Posted on Posted in Blog, BUB Recommends, MOMarathon

***Disclosure*** I wrote this review based off of my own research. Nothing I’m writing is factual but purely based on my opinion. Because I own the Thule Urban Glide Stroller I’m able to write out of personal experience. For my review of the BOB Revolution PRO I combined my own research with the reviews of other mamas (see bottom of page for references) to come up with an informed list. BOB and Thule both produce AMAZING strollers that will give you many days of happy running with your BUB.

Are you looking for a jogging stroller and don't know where to start? Check out our review of the BOB Revolution Pro and the Thule Urban Glide.

I have been running since I was 15 years old. I won’t tell you exactly how long ago that was because it would give away my age. But lets just say I’ve been running for a loooong time. When I became pregnant, I made the decision to take a year off from running, just so I could relax and take in my entire pregnancy experience.

Skip forward eleven months. After eight weeks of around the clock caring for my new baby, I was biting at the bit to put on my running shoes and hit the pavement! Sure, I was excited to get started but also nervous to find out just how far behind I had fallen. And, I now had a constant running companion! My little Paxton would be along for the ride. And so began my hunt for the perfect running stroller. I did my homework, asking my runner friends, reading reviews on Google and listening to the opinion of the REI employees. Although there are many options for great strollers out there, it came down to two for me. The BOB Revolution PRO and the THULE Urban Glide Sport Stroller. So, I have picked and prodded and researched and tested…and really struggled to make a decision because both of these strollers are so FREAKIN COOL! But in the end I went with the THULE. Allow me to break it down for you:

 

The BOB Revolution PRO

Pros

  • Hand activated Rear Drum Brakes – helps you maintain control when
  • Swiveling Front Wheel – this is great for when you’re walking through a store or crowded street. It’s pretty easy to maneuver. The front wheel also locks. This is nice for when you are running on a straight road. When unlocked the stroller is difficult to control while running – it goes all over the place.
  • Lots of padding and an adjustable reclining seat to keep your BUB comfortable.
  • Ability to buy adapter for car seat
  • Adjustable handle bar to accommodate different heights
  • Very durable – will last a long time. AND you can put your BUB in it until they’re 70 lbs!
  • BOB offers a lot of accessories you can purchase including a toddler feeding tray, Weather shield, handle-bar console with a coffee holder.
  • It’s pretty easy to fold up and carry around
  • A large pouch under the seat for carrying items.

Cons

  • It’s not cheap. We’re talking $435ish brand new. It IS the top of the line when it comes to strollers however. Keep your eyes on REI. They have been known to run sales that offer a $100 coupon for The BOB.
  • I’m not gonna lie, it starts to get heavy at 25 lbs. It’s bigger than your average stroller. You may find yourself struggling a little when putting it in the back of your car.
  • Some mamas feel that the car seat adapter is not sturdy for running. It’s recommended that you only walk until your child is old enough to sit facing forward, which is around 6 -8 months.
  • The BOB accessories are expensive. But they are SO COOL! And so many to choose from!!
  • BOB makes car seat adapters specific to your brand of car seat Here is a list of some of the adaptors that are available:

 

   Britax – Single                                                           

Britax – Double

 Chicco – Single

 Duallie for Chicco

Graco – Single

THULE – The Urban Glide – Sport Stroller

 

Pros

  • I love this stroller and I use it everyday. It has literally been a life-saver for me!
  • It’s not as expensive as other running strollers on the market. At $399 you feel like you’re getting a good deal.
  • Are you a serious runner? This stroller is for you! With a unique rear suspension and large trail back tires, you feel confident running on more than just your average trail.
  • I take this stroller off-road often…and we have a blast!
  • It’s one of the lightest weight strollers on the market. Weighing in at 23 lbs it’s pretty easy to fold up and carry around. You still might struggle when putting it in the back of your car.
  • It has several pockets (including some on the seat for your BUB to use) and large , water-proof pouch on the bottom. I’m able to carry all my groceries home.
  • You’ll use it for a long time. It has a 75 lb weight limit
  • Ergonomic, adjustable handlebars.
  • It has a sleek feel – not as bulky as other running strollers
  • A reclinable seat with a water-proof cover – so your BUB can nap comfortably
  • A Car seat adapter that

 

Cons

  • Unfortunately, those big mountain trail wheels are squeaky! After a while I learned to tune the noise out. But some people may not be able to do the same. In my opinion, totally outweighed by the positive features.
  • The foot brake needs some design work. It seems outdated compared to such a modern stroller. It ‘s hard to use and sometimes hurts my foot.
  • Although the tires are AWESOME on off-road trails, they don’t maintain air as long as I’d like them to. Minor complaint.
  • Thule – you need to step it up in the stroller accessories department. BOB is killing you here.

44 thoughts on “Choosing A Jogging Stroller: The BOB Revolution PRO vs. The Thule Urban Glide

  1. So happy to read a review from a fellow lifetime runner. I’ve been trying to decide between these two strollers and get so frustrated when I read reviews like “It’s hard to navigate the mall” or “I don’t like it because there isn’t enough storage room.” I just want to know how a jogging stroller handles when I am running, lol!

  2. We really like the look and sound of the Thule Urban Glide, and are thinking of buying one. But it does not have a hand brake! Would it be possible for, say a cycle specialist, to fit one? Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    1. Hi Yvonne! I hear you on the hand brake. Especially when your kiddo gets a little bigger, it’s amazing how the bigger they get, the stronger the velocity when you run down a hill! Great question on the possibility of a cycle specialist fitting a handbrake. You know, it seems like it would be a relatively simple procedure (I could be wrong). I say give it a try! If you do, please let us know what you find out!

  3. Hi there, I’m wondering if either stroller have brakes that can be used while running down hills, like bicycle brakes? I understand they all have locking brakes but I’m having trouble finding info on running brakes. Thanks!

  4. Hi. I love your post and that’s why I bought the Thule. No regrets so far. Can I ask whether you have travelled with it on airplane and how did you pack it up? Also what kind of temperatures is it during winter when you take baby out with it?

    1. Hi Sarah! I’m happy to hear you are enjoying your Thule. 🙂 Great question about airplane travel. The answer is no, I have not traveled with my Thule. I have heard, however, that the goSMART XL Stroller Travel Bag NEW DESIGN for Double Strollers, Jogging Stroller and Travel Systems is a great travel bag!

      As for temperature – I live in Oregon, so typically, our weather doesn’t get too extreme. One of the features I love about the Thule is the adjustable/pull-down cover, because it provides so much coverage, and protects babies from harsh wind and sun. I always bundle my guy up and bring extra warm blankets. But a good rule of thumb – if you’re feeling uncomfortably cold (do your lungs hurt when you breath), chances are your baby probably is too.

      I hope this helps!

  5. I just LOVED my Thule although I had continuous issues with the front wheel getting stuck perpendicular to the stroller. Thule replaced the wheel promptly although this did not resolve the issue. It really is a hard pick between the two strollers. I had to give in to the new BOB Revolutionary Flex now that the handlebar foam of the Thule cracked open. This made me give in to replacing the Thule with another stroller within the warranty period. I was pretty light on the Thule, mostly urban walks/runs. Prob with Thule is when you close it, easy and quick, it tends to lay on the handle bar. The stroller is just stunning, although it’s longness does take up a lot of room in the nursery–closing it was not always the best option since it does not stand alone well. The parent console is pretty cool and the storage underneath is huge and has a closed zipper to enclose items–protect from dirt/mud on runs—the brake is really hard too though. Ugh, hate I had to return it because I truly loved it but the quality/design could use improvement. Perhaps the BOB keeps taking the top spot because they have been doing this for years and Thule has just begun. I have no doubt Thule will refine their product in the near future…

    1. Hey Andrea!

      Thanks so much for your valuable feedback. 🙂 Funny you should mention the front wheel turning and jamming. I have been experiencing the same thing lately! It’s usually when I stop and try to turn, but it can be a pain to correct. I completely agree with your statement that Thule is just getting started. I have no doubt that they will work out the kinks and produce an even more superior product! And the BOB is always just amazing. Lucky for us moms, we really can’t make a wrong choice when choosing between these two running strollers. They’re both amazing!

  6. great review. we are planning to buy the Thule and we are wondering if there is possible to lift the feet of my child so he can sleep without the legs hanging. whats your experience on this?

    1. Hi Aturo! This is such a great question. My son is two and TALL and definitely has some legs dangling. The seat can be adjusted so that it reclines pretty far back, allowing your child to almost lay down, but there is no way to lift the feet of your child up. There is a little step for them to set their feet on, so that their legs are not just dangling. I hope this is helpful. The best of luck to you!

  7. Hi,
    We bought Thule Urban Glide for our 13month old so that I can enjoy my walks and rollerblading more. It is an excellent stroller. However during our first walk front wheel started producing sounds (squeeks). We contacted retailer and most probably the stroller will be returned and hopefully we will receive non squeeky one. You mentioned that you managed to get rid of sounds the wheels were making. How did you do it?
    Another question did you find any universal belly bar (bumper bar) or snack tray that would fit thule urban glide. My little one likes to hold on bumber bar when he is sitting up right. But this half snack tray that Thule is affering is not really appealing to me 🙁

  8. Thank you for sharing your experience with these both strollers. Your blog has helped us greatly in deciding which one is best suited to our lifestyle. My husband and I are considering the Thule Urban glide 1 but before we do we’d like to know how comfortable is it for ages 0-6mts. Regarding the baby bassinet, is there ample space for our little one during the winter months when little one is 6+ mts. old and needs additional warm gear? The Thule’s website gives the dimensions of the outside perimeters but not the inside.
    Thanks in advance for helping us make our final decision. 🙂

    1. Hi there! Congrats on your little bundle. 🙂 And I’m so happy to hear you’re considering the Thule!

      So, when it comes to comfort for babies 0 – 6 mos., so much depends on the carseat you use, because you will be using the carseat adapter. (https://www.thule.com/en-us/us/strollers/accessories/thule-infant-car-seat-adapter—glideurban-glide-_-1684827). Fortunately, this adapter can be used with most popular carseats. I chose the Graco Snugride Click Connect (http://www.gracobaby.com/products/pages/snugride-click-connect-30-lx-infant-car-seat-hatton.aspx), and it worked great. I loved having my baby in the carseat, because he faced me, so I knew what he was up to. I stopped using the carseat and moved my guy to the stroller once he could hold his head up and sit up by himself unassisted. About 4-5 months. Once your child moves to the main stroller compartment, you have so much room! My son is 2 years old and I still have plenty of room to bundle him up and layer with clothing. And I have to emphasize that he’s a good sized kid.

      I hope I answered your question! The best of luck to you as you make your final decision. 🙂

  9. Thank you so much for writing this review. I am still undecided between the 2 brands! One thing I was wondering is how compactly the Thule folds? Is it likely I would have to take the wheels off or do you think it will fit in the trunk of small sedan?

    1. Hey Kim! That’s a great question. Both strollers rock. Both fold up nicely, especially considering their “rugged” appearances. I have to speak for the Thule though. For the first year of my son’s life, I drove a Nissan Sentra (sedan), and took my Thule Urban Glide everywhere with me. I was able to comfortably fit the stroller into my trunk without any trouble or having to take the wheels off. The Thule is also known for being light in weight, which I can attest for. It’s easy to fold, carry and load!

      The best of luck to you! Thanks for the comment. 🙂

    1. Hi Julie! Great question. It’s important to invest in a stroller that gives you seat position options. The Thule Urban Glide has an adjustable seat that involves sliding a belt up and down. Its easy, and can be adjusted from a slight upright recline to an almost laying down flat position. The BOB Revolution offers a one-hand recline adjustment that lets you quickly lay the seat back with the simple squeeze of a button. It also allows you to have an upright seating position so your child can see the world. Either stroller is great for the kids that want to be upright and watch your adventure or want to lie down and rest while you walk/run. Best of luck on your search!

      1. What is your opinion of the double Bob vs. double Thule. The Thule looks much slimmer. I’m going to have to get a double stroller in the winter and am trying to decide the best one to get.

        1. Hi Julie!

          That’s a super tough decision because both of the double strollers get excellent reviews. The double Thule Urban Glide is 32lbs, whereas the double BOB Revolution Pro is 36lbs. In my opinion, the Thule folds up easier and slimmer. Thule has been making bike racks for cars for so long, and specialize in compact carrying. I suspect that the stroller will only get more compact with time and development.

          Check out this video to see how the double Thule folds up. https://www.thule.com/en-us/us/strollers/jogging-strollers/thule-urban-glide-2-_-1684601

          The best of luck to you, Julie!

    2. Hi Julie!

      Great question. So, both seats are roomy and comfortable and offer the ability to adjust. However, The BOB Revolution Pro does allow your child to sit upright, whereas the Thule is slightly inclined at it’s highest point. The BOB is also ultra-padded, has an adjustable reclining seat for enhanced seating comfort and a five-point padded harness which helps keep your kiddo comfortably secure.

      I hope this answers your question! The best of luck to you. 🙂

  10. Thanks for the review it helped us decide to go with the Thule as well. I was curious to know if you had any suggestions for a snack tray or cup holder for our little one in the stroller. Most of the reviews I have read on the Thule specific tray have not been very favorable. Thanks!

    1. Hi John,

      I’m happy to hear that my review was helpful, AND that you’re going with the Thule Urban Glide! You’re going to love it. My son is almost 2 and I still use it almost every day.

      You bring up a great question. It depends on the age of your little one. For my son, I put his snacks in one of these Munchkin Snack Catchers: http://www.amazon.com/Munchkin-Snack-Catchers-Colors-Vary/dp/B000GB0NZK/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1462218096&sr=8-1&keywords=toddler+snack+container. He’s pretty good about hanging on to it!

      As for his drinks, we exercise a bit more control. 🙂 We fill up this Hydroflask: http://www.amazon.com/Hydro-Vacuum-Insulated-Stainless-Bottle/dp/B01ACATV2A/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1462218277&sr=8-2&keywords=hydro+flask+12+oz with this accessory: http://www.amazon.com/Hydro-Flask-Mouth-Straw-Black/dp/B00DMIEZEO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1462218414&sr=8-1&keywords=hydro+flask+accessories. This will keep your kiddo’s drink cold all day. But, we put it in the department under the seat, and just stop and give him a drink throughout our walk/run. Also, here are some universal snack tray options: https://www.diapers.com/html/sg/universal-stroller-snack-tray.html.

      I hope this is helpful! Good luck on your search and happy running/walking!

  11. Thanks for the great review! My husband and I have picked out the Thule as our favourite stroller for its ability to keep up with our active outdoor lifestyle without being huge (we are expecting our first!). My only concern when we looked at it in the shops was the depth of the seat. I have read in the comments that you and your husband are both tall (as we are!), which is reassuring to me, but do you have any comments or concerns about the depth of the seat (the sitting height seems reasonable to me?). How old is your little one and do you see him out growing the seat any time soon?

    1. Hi Caroline! Congratulations on the new addition to your family! You are in for quite the adventure. 🙂 You have made an excellent choice with the Thule stroller. It is the perfect size for the active parent, and it’s incredibly durable (I’ve done some off-road testing). Mine has been a life saver. I have definitely used it a ton, and intend to use it as long as I’m able to. Great question on the seat depth, My son is 20 months old is growing like a string bean. I’m guessing he weighs around 27 pounds. According to the Thule website, the Urban Glide has a weight limit of 75 pounds, so he has a ways to go! He’s full of energy, and struggles to sit still. However, he almost always falls asleep in the Thule. The seat appears to be roomy and pretty comfortable. I like that it has a little step/ledge for him to rest his feet on. Also, you can adjust the seat’s depth by pulling out/lengthening the chord on the backside of the seat. So your child can almost lay down flat. Another positive is the adjustable handlebar. For tall folks like us, this is a huge bonus! I hope I answered your question. The best of luck to you and your family!

  12. Hi! Thanks for a helpful review. Have you had any problems with the front wheel leaning to one side or the other? I have seen a few reviews of people complaining that it’s difficult to lock it in place. Was considering the fixed-wheel Thule Glide instead, but it seems so much less versatile…Appreciate your thoughts! Thanks!

    1. Hi Katie!

      That’s a great question. I haven’t used the front wheel lock a whole lot. This is because I typically run on paved trails that are pretty curvy (I currently live in Boulder City, NV., home to some of the world’s best mountain bike trails). The times I have used it, I did notice it took some initial effort to lock in to place, but once I got it I had no problems. Also, I did not notice the wheel leaning to one side. Next time I run (which should be Tuesday) I’ll test it out and will report back to you!

  13. Hi I don’t know if you are still responding to comments. I heard there was a concern with tipping the thule because of how light weight it is, backwards or sideways. Is this a problem you have. Also do you find the seat comfortable enough for baby? I’m deciding between the thule and bob flex. Great review btw.

    1. Hi Hannah!

      Thanks for your comment. 🙂 I’m glad you brought up the tipping, because it actually happened to me for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I was nearing the top of a hill, I was tired and had fallen deep into thought. Without realizing it, I put a bunch of my weight down on the handlebar. All of a sudden, the stroller fell back fast and hard. It surprised me and my son! Fortunately, we were both fine. I have been running with the Thule for 20 months now and this is the first time I have experienced the tip. I believe it happened because I was putting so much weight on it and I was at a relatively steep incline. So, it’s definitely something to be wary of, but not something to be overly concerned about, in my opinion. As for the level of comfort in the seat – My son has always been squirmy, and he more often than not falls asleep in the Thule! I love how there is an incline adjuster at the back of the seat, so you can lay your baby down or allow them to sit up. One thing is for sure, I’ve gotten many a mile out of this Thule! It’s been a life saver for me. The best of luck in your decision making! The good news is, whatever choice you make is the right none, because both are incredible strollers. 🙂

  14. Hello!

    I’ve read that the stroller is narrow for some children and that they’re prone to hitting their head on a protruding bar on the side. Can you speak to that? That’s my only concern. Also, the lack of hand brake.

    1. Hi Brook!

      Great question. 🙂 I’m guessing the protruding bar you’re talking about is the adjustable canopy bar. My son is 18 months and I’ve never had an issue with the sidebars. What’s cool, is that you can lower the back so that your baby is at a lower resting position. Doing this puts quite a bit of space between your baby and the sidebars. However, just to reiterate, I have an active toddler who has never once hit his head on these bars. We are also a tall family (my husband is 6’4 and I’m 5’11) and my son is growing fast. He still has more than enough room in the stroller. I have not noticed it being too narrow. As for the lack of a hand brake – I personally prefer not to have one. I run a lot, and am currently living on hilly terrain. Never once have I felt out of control or the need to slow down when I run downhills. However, this is very much a matter of preference. I also have the advantage of being tall, and can imagine someone smaller than me needing more control with a hand brake. Overall, I really love the Thule Urban Glide, and feel that it is the best investment we made baby gear-wise (meaning we have used it a ton!). I hope I answered your question! Good luck on your search and Happy Holiday!

  15. I own the BOB SE (no hand brake) and I love it. I didn’t realize Thule was there until few days ago. Until than I thought there is no match for BOB in term of ridability. What I love about Thule, it’s the looks. The ergonomics, pockets seems better thought through. It folds easier than BOB, but than folded it seems longer. Next time I would go for Thule (style matters). BTW, I don’t jog. Its still a great stroller for all terrain AND the city.

    1. Hi Maciek!
      Thanks for your comment:) I agree, the pockets on the Thule are really great. I use the large pouch under the seat all the time for groceries. It’s surprising how light and easy to fold it is. And you are absolutely right – this is not a stroller made exclusively for joggers. It’s the perfect accessory for all outside excursions!

    2. Hey Maciek,

      Thule is definitely known for producing a consistently high-quality product (their roof racks are amazing). My prediction is that their stroller is only going to improve in the functionality and accessory department. And you are so right, this stroller is great for all terrain and city. I have taken it into little boutiques and have had no issues with maneuvering it around. The front wheel swivels so smoothly. Thanks for your feedback! Have a Happy Holiday. 🙂

  16. Thanks for the review. I have been going back and forth trying to decide which of these strollers to buy. I’m leaning towards the Thule, just wondering if it has a hand brake. I read a review that stated it did but don’t see it on the Thule website.

    1. Hi Shahara! Great question. No, the Thule Urban Glide does not have a hand brake and honestly, I haven’t missed it. That being said, a hand brake would be a great addition, especially as your “little load” grows and gets heavier. I’m finding that the bigger my son gets, the more momentum he has when we go down hills. A hand brake would be useful. Good luck on making your decision!

  17. Thanks for your review, I’ve been debating between these two for awhile. I think I like the weight and cost of the Thule.

    1. Hi Leanna! My son is 16 months now and let me tell you, the Thule Urban Glide has been a life saver. I have put many miles on it and still use it pretty much every day. I did have one tire go flat (probably because I had the bright idea of taking over a large field of sharp rocks), but th etube was easy to repair. I now carry a small, portable hand pump. Let me us know what you think! Good luck!

  18. Oh, and the parking brake is definitely a design fail. The only legitimate complaint about the thule other than the lack of and high price of accessories. $50 for a cupholder is kind of ridiculous.

  19. Could you describe the wheel noise more? I hadn’t noticed that with mine.

    I’d imagine you could try replacing tubes:
    https://www.biketiresdirect.com/search/miscellaneous-tubes

    I haven’t seen any 16’s with presta valves but I haven’t looked very hard. My tires hold enough air for casual use without even thinking about pumping more than once a month.

    I went with new conti tires and tubes on my secondhand babyjogger w 20″ wheels and it rolls like the pillsbury doughboy now. Of course I spent more on tires than the jogger and it’s not exactly a plush ride anymore either but it moves well.

    1. Hey Dave!

      Thanks for the recommendation on the tubes! Like I mentioned, we LOVE the Thule, and have gotten lots of miles out of it. However, the squeeky wheel has been there from the beginning. Perhaps it’s an issue with ours alone? I’m glad to hear that you don’t have the same problem. It’s always there, and definitely gets worse when it’s wet. It bothers my husband much more than it does me:) But if there’s a way we can fix it, I’ll definitely look into it!

      And I hear you on expensive accessories. I’m admittedly a sucker for them! They are great but boy do they add up.
