Bugaboo Runner Review
Since the dawn of time, we as humans have been trying to come up with better infant transportation. And one of the earliest examples of that comes from, a fresco painted by the famed Italian painter Giotto. In that fresco he depicted Jesus being carried in an early version of a sling by his mother Mary. The fresco dates from 1306 AD. But the wheeled type of devices or strollers as they’re known today were invented in the 18th century England.
One of the most prominent designers of that era, William Kent actually designed the first modern stroller. It was commissioned for the noblemen called Duke of Devonshire and was actually pulled by an animal such as a small pony or a small goat. The later construction focused more on security, rather than on aesthetics, but they were more or less the same in the design.
But the strollers go by different names. They’re called pushchairs in the UK and buggies in other parts of the Commonwealth. But for now, let’s focus on one particularly versatile stroller. The Bugaboo Runner, made for the active young mothers, this is the pinnacle of modern technology.
But what are the pros and cons of this stroller? Find out by scrolling down in this post. Hope you’ll like this review and this item.
Practical with tracking controls
A wide selection of accessories
Three wheel type of stroller
Only two color options are available
Comes with a 17 kg weight limit
Made entirely out of aluminum, it makes for one hell of a lightweight and very easy to handle stroller. Of course, the tires are made from the good old rubber, and the one fantastic thing about them (besides the thickness) is that you can easily inflate all three of them with just your basic bike pump. The pump you use for your bike or your basketball can be used in the maintenance of the wheels.
You may run through the nice paved roads of the city park, but you may also run through the busy streets of the big cities. Wherever that may be the speed break that controls the speed comes with easy access. You can reach it without any limitations at any time and it lets you be in churches of the speed at all times. The tracking controls are also one fantastic future, and they’re aimed at the front wheel. That way you can adjust the deviation if it’s needed without any obstruction.
All of these things combined really allow the comfort to brighten up the use of the runner, and to give you the best possible performance.
It allows you to remain active even after the arrival of the bundle of joy while taking good care of your baby as well. Your baby will remain safe and sound while the physical activity lasts, and protected from the external influences (like pesky rain and UV rays of the hot scorching sun). The Runner doesn’t restrict your activities because of the weather conditions and allows you to stay active for months and months after birth. Also, you can use it up to the point when your baby reaches 17 kg in weight, while the basket under the seat has the capacity to hold an additional 10 kg of extra load. That’s where your additional bags, diapers, and bottles will go. Oh, and one last thing.
If the tires get deflated (let’s face it, it could happen, you can easily inflate them with your basic bike pump, and they’ll be good as new. You’ll be pleasantly surprised from the practicality of the Runner.
And yes, it will eventually get dirty, especially if the running is done through a rougher and tumbled terrain but you’ll be a lot more comforted to know that there’s a protective guard inserted on the tires to catch the excess mud. Oh, and the seat mentioned earlier… Well, …it’s reversible. Yes, you’ll be able to turn the set the seat on the side that suits you more on a moment’s notice. Underneath the seat is the basket, and much like the seat itself is very spacious, accommodating and easily accusable.
The wet-naps, the diapers, the extra set of clothes, the sun-block lotion and everything that you and your baby might need, can be stored in the basket. Oh, and last but not least… The speed and tracking control of the stroller. The brake that controls the speed has nice and easy access as well, and so does tracking controls on the stroller’s front wheel.
All three of them are made out of rubber, but really the star of the construction are the synthetic-made sun-canopy and the synthetic-made seat. Both are accommodating and protective at the same time. The sun-canopy protects the baby from the sun rays and from the rain as well, while the seat is strong enough not to absorb any type of liquid. Both items are machine-washable and easy to clean.
On the subject of size, the width of the stroller is 70 cm, which means is narrow enough to fit in most of the city and rural spaces. When it’s folded, it has the 86.5 x 70 by 42.5 cm dimensions, and separately (not folded) the dimensions on the front wheel measure 14 inches, while on the back wheel, they measure 16 inches.
That’s why it’s essential to have an item made from very lightweight and practical materials, and with the ingenuity that could make the use a real effortless dream for every mother. Although it comes with only 2 color options, the versatility is more evident in the surroundings that you can actually use it. It’s really comfy, and appropriate for use in several types of terrain and the sun canopy is there to offer protection (to your baby of course) both form the sun and the UV rays.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the Bugaboo Runner. It will keep you fit and active and your baby happy that’s joining you in your daily physical activities. It’s a truly amazing stroller that is sure to stand the test of time. It's easy to transport, easy to clean, it's very practical and dependable on almost any type of terrain. Both you and your baby will fall in love with it, but let's face it... You might fall in love with the model a bit more. Well, more than your baby anyway. It will allow you to sat close to your child, while it keeps you fit and active at any given moment. What's not to love about that? Seriously. This will quickly become a must-have item.
