The BOB Revolution Flex earned a high rank and Editors' Choice award in our jogging stroller review. With a top score for run-ability and solid scores in maneuverability and quality, the BOB impresses by being a great running stroller that adeptly navigates crowded spaces and rough terrain. While the BOB has lower ease of use and weight and folded size scores than the Thule Urban Glide 2, it shares the Urban Glide's smooth run-ability and offers a more rugged look. This makes it a great choice for those that value the proven durability of a BOB over smaller size and lighter weight. We would recommend this stroller for families who love being outside and plan to move off the beaten path regularly.

Our Analysis and Test Results
In 1994, Roger Malinowski and Philip Novotny formed the Beast of Burden Company, which is now known as BOB. They formed their company in San Luis Obispo, California. The bicycle industry professional and the airline mechanic started BOB with Yak bike trailers with quick release attachment. As the two had families, they saw a need for a new kind of stroller, and the BOB Sport Utility jogging stroller was born. In 2005, the men continued to revolutionize the stroller world creating the first locking swivel wheel on a jogger, making it more versatile and user-friendly. In 2011, the company was acquired by Britax and offers a full line of stroller options designed for every lifestyle.
