Thankfully, the Thule jogger is designed to be quite durable, giving you the safety and strength that you would expect from a jogging stroller.

That being said, customers love it and have stated that they thought it was worth every penny they spend. This buggy is going to last years, through multiple children if you take care of it. It comes chock-full of features to keep you and baby safe and comfortable, and it gives you things that other similar products cannon. It transitions nicely between off-road trails and paved paths and from going indoors to outside, it will be the only stroller that you will need.

Consumers would have liked to have seen the price of the stroller including the infant seat adaptor, as that is an additional investment that they will have to make after already spending a great deal of cash on this product. That being said, it did not stop parents from purchasing this product, as well as the adapter, and falling in love.
Style

Style

The Urban Glide 2 has a thin and sleek silhouette, although it is a little longer than you might expect. It looks great, not overly bulky, giving you just what you need without too many bells and whistles.

Safety

Safety

Safety is crucial for the design of strollers. If you are going to be putting a small life into it, you want to make sure that it is going to be safe. Thankfully, the Thule is designed with this in mind and will help keep you and baby safe. The seat comes equipped with a five-point padded harness to make sure that your child stays securely strapped in place, so there are no chances of him/her accidentally falling out and getting hurt along the way. If you have to come to a sudden stop for any reason you are not going to have to worry about the baby going flying and jolting around inside the seat.

The buggy comes equipped with an integrated twist hand brake so you can stop with ease if the need arises, without out too much distress to you or your child. This will also help you out if you are running up and down hills, you can twist the hand brake a little, so you slow your descent down the hill, controlling your speed, so you do not lose control.

Additionally, it has a tether strap on the handle that you can keep around your wrist for safety. If you stop somewhere, you can take your hands off of the handlebar without fear of someone walking off with your little one or it accidentally rolling away. You will be tethered to the stroller so it will not go anywhere without you.

One thing that this stroller does not feature that some others do is added safety for running in low light conditions. The wheels of this buggy do not have reflectors attached to them so if you are going to be running where visibility might not be the best be sure to use caution and wear reflective gear to keep you and your little one safe.

Additionally, it has a sitting height of 21 inches, giving you a decent amount of room inside the stroller for your little one.
