Reviews of the Best Jogging Travel System Strollers

#1. Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System

The Baby Trend Expedition Jogger System is top on our list. After exploring different brands and models, we found that the Expedition offers the best value for the price. It comes at a ridiculously low price ($199.99) which is less than the single price of most car seats or strollers. We also found that it offered similar, if not better, functionality than its expensive peers.

The travel system consists of a 3-wheeler jogger stroller and a matching infant car seat with base. When it comes to strollers for jogging or running, three-wheelers are ideal because the front wheel maneuvers more easily. Also, the tires have to be large and made of rubber and filled with air (just like bicycle tires) to be able to cruise on the rough grounds you will be exploring. The Expedition meets those requirements perfectly. Its front wheel is designed to swivel to help you maneuver around obstacles and lock in place if you want more stability when running or jogging on a straight line.

Like other travel systems on this list, the Expedition accommodates infants until they reach 50 pounds weight. They first sit in the infant car seat for safety until they reach a weight of 30 pounds, then in the stroller without the car seat.

The Expedition ensures your baby’s safety with a 5 point harness and a tether strap. It also has multiple reclining positions for a comfortable ride and storage for your handy items drinks and snacks.

#2. Graco Trax Jogger Travel System

We highly recommend you to check out the next jogger from Graco, a famous and trusted brand. Graco Trax comes at a reasonable pricing (239. 99), and it shares many similar features with Expedition. The Travel System consists of a Trax jogger and Snug Ride Click Connect 30 infant car seat.

The stroller features air-filled rubber tires and suspension for stability on uneven terrain. The front swivel wheel provides easy transitioning between strolling and jogging. When you lock, you get more stability for running, and unlocking gives you better maneuverability.

The Trax jogger travel system carries infants as little pounds and until they are 50 pounds. The padded Trax seat can recline in multiple positions and has a 5-point harness. We love that it has an extra-large storage basket and expandable canopy for fuller coverage.

The Trax jogger features the easiest folding mechanism, even more so than the Expedition. According to Graco, you simply pull a strap in the center of the seat, and the stroller will folds itself in seconds.

On Amazon, The Graco Trax has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 by 107 customers. While these ratings are much lower compared to those of Expedition, we feel the features and functionality it offers make it a great option.

Features:

  • Package includes Trax stroller and SnugRide 30 infant car seat
  • Infant car seat weight capacity: 4 to 30 pounds
  • Stroller weight limit: 50 pounds
  • Stroller weight: 38.1 pounds
  • Air-filled rubber tires with suspension
  • Locking front swivel wheel
  • Designed for all terrains
  • Height adjustable foam handle
  • One-hand standing foldable design
  • Multi-position reclining seat
  • 5 point harness
  • Expandable canopy with a peep window

Pros 

  • The height of the handlebar is adjustable depending on pusher’s comfort
  • Easy foldable mechanism on one hand
  • Expandable canopy with UV 50 protection for fuller coverage
  • The storage basket is extra-large in comparison
  • Click Connect mechanism is super easy to attach the car seat on to stroller

Cons

  • You might need to buy an infant insert if you have a preemie, the one included does not provide sufficient support
  • Customers report that the front wheel becomes shaky after using for sometime 
  • It is large and heavy, so it’s not the best for everyday errand running, but it is great for jogging

#3. Britax B-Agile B-Safe 35 Travel System

The Britax B-Agile B-Safe 35 Travel System is ideal for jogging in an urban environment where the terrain is even. It is also an excellent choice if you are looking for the most convenient strollers for hectic city life.  The travel system combines B-agile strollers and Britax B-Safe 35 infant car seat to give you the ultimate package for safety and great maneuverability.

The first thing you will love is how light the Agile stroller is; at just 18 pounds, it is less than half the weight of the Expedition and others on this list. In part, the difference can be explained by the use of foam for the tires instead of rubber (why we only recommend for jogging on the pavements instead of dirt roads and grassy terrains), but the front wheel can swivel and lock. This helps with maneuvering sharp corners and gaining speed.  You will also love that the stroller folds up easily and compactly on just one hand. With these features, we find the stroller convenient for a hectic urban life and running errands. 

The Britax Agile travel system is unique because it comes with adapters for attaching the car seat into the stroller. Customers have reported that with the help of these adapters, the car seat clicks in and out, effortlessly. While the stroller is super light, the car seat is heavy due to the sturdy construction that features a steel base and side protection to keep your infant safe. 

The Britax Agile strollers were designed for casual strolling, but they are still an option to consider if you can restrict your jogging to pavements. Plus, you will never have issues with maneuvering thanks to its front swivel wheel.

In terms of reviews, the Britax Stroller combo has not received very great ratings; it has 4.6 out of 5 ratings by 242 customers on Amazon.

Features:

  • Package includes B-agile strollers, B-Safe 35 infant car seat, and adapters
  • Infant car seat weight capacity: 4 to 35 pounds
  • Stroller weight capacity: 55 pounds
  • Stroller weight: 18 pounds
  • Foam tires
  • Not designed as jogger strollers
  • One hand foldable design
  • Swivel front wheel with suspenders
  • Large storage basket and cup holder
  • Expandable canopy

Pros

  • Higher weight capacity in comparison
  • The storage and canopy is a bit large than competition 
  • High quality materials
  • Lightweight and faster to push around
  • One-handed foldable design 
  • Maneuvers smoothly in any direction

Cons

  • The stroller is the most expensive($ 399.99) compared to Expedition which comes at ($199.99)
  • Can be used for jogging on flat pavements but not dirt roads and hikes etc
  • The car seat feels bit small than you would expect considering the higher weight capacity

#4. Chicco Viaro Travel System

The Chicco Viaro Travel System is another pricier option ($349.99), but you get super light strollers and America’s most highly rated infant car seat, the Chicco KeyFit 30. Like the Britax Agile, this stroller has wheels made from foam, making it unsuitable for jogging on rough terrains. Also, though the front wheel swivels, it does not lock. These factors make the strollers most ideal for casual strolling on the streets or pavements.

The seat carries babies weighing up to 35 pounds and the stroller up to 50 pounds. As mentioned earlier, the seat has high ratings because of safety features, ease of installation, and comfort. And the same continues even with the strollers; Chicco KeyFit 30 snaps into the strollers effortlessly without adapters.

As you can expect from the Chicco brand, this stroller combo has many user friendly features like a parent tray and baby tray, cup holders, and a large storage basket accessible from the front and back. Once you are done jogging, you easily fold the whole thing into a compact package for easy carrying and storing.

The Chicco Viaro has a rating of 4.8 out of 5 by 141 customers on Amazon.

Features:

  • Package includes Viaro strollers and Chicco KeyFit 30 infant car seat
  • Weight capacity: 4 to 30 pounds for the car seat and 50 pounds for strollers
  • One hand free-standing foldable design
  • Multi-position reclining seat
  • A child and parent tray with two cup holders each and storage basket
  • Foam tires
  • Swiveling front wheel with suspension

Cons

#5. Graco Aire3 Travel System

As earlier mentioned, Graco car seats and strollers are loved in many families. Next is their Graco Aire3, which a combo of Aire3 stroller and SnugRide Click connect 35 infant car seat. It is a lighter model than the Graco Trax we reviewed earlier, costs a lot more ($299.99), but very rich in user friendly and practical features. In terms of reviews, it has 4.0 out of 5 by 547 customers.

The Graco Aires set is made of high quality materials and is designed to grow with your child. Infants can ride in the SnugRide Click Connect 35 until they weigh 35 pounds and then transition to the stroller seat until they reach 50 pounds.

As your baby grows, you can use the three or five-point harness on the stroller seat to secure them, and additionally, it has an arm bar your child can grip when riding. We also love that the stroller seat can recline into a flat position as a bassinet, giving your baby an even more comfortable riding position. You also get a parent tray with zippered storage, cup holders, and an extra-large storage basket that makes strolling more convenient for a mom.

While other models on this list also fold up one on hand, Graco Trax has a carrying strap in addition to make transporting less cumbersome for you.

Graco Trax is an excellent stroller, and it gives you value for the price. That said, it is not designed to be used as a jogger, but since the front wheel can swivel and lock, the stroller is very easy to steer and maneuver. We recommend that you only use it for jogging on flat surfaces so it can last.

  • Infant car seat weight capacity: 4 to 35 pounds
  • Stroller weight limit: 50 pounds

  • Multi-position reclining seat with three or five harness

Pros

  • Designed for longevity
  • Folds and unfolds quickly
  • A bassinet riding position keeps the baby comfortable throughout

Cons

  • The handle is a bit low hence not comfortable for tall parents

#6. Baby Jogger City Mini Travel System

The City Jogger Mini is another excellent choice if you are looking for a lightweight jogger. It also has a practical design that will make your errand running and traversing the streets a lot easier.

The City Mini is a bit different than all the models we have on this list. First, it does not come with a car seat, but the good news is that it was designed to attach to many car seat models. The included Baby Jogger car seat adapter is compatible with Maxi Cosi, Cybex, and Nuna car seats. If using a different car seat brand than the ones listed, you can use compatible adapters, but the process might be a bit tricky. Luckily, you can check out YouTube videos to help guide through installation.

The City Mini has a lot to offer. It was designed for running and jogging on any terrain. You can set the front wheel for obstacle maneuvering or lock for long distance strolling. It also has a higher weight capacity (55 pounds) than all the others on this list, which suggests it was designed for durability, and it is lightweight (18.4 lbs). When you are done with your errands, you simply pull a center strap and the City Mini folds up into a compact package. It also auto locks to keep the fold in place for transport and storage.

If you opt for City Mini combo with City Go car seat, you get it at $335.99 (current price), but you get value for your money. The strollers also have great reviews with a rating of 4.3 out of 5 by 1047 customers on Amazon.
