Excellent!! Had it 4 years & bought 2nd hand!!!I bought this pram because I live in the bush & love running. It has been fantastic. 4 years later & it’s still going & I have flogged it. I bought it 2nd hand. I’m now looking for another one as I’m pregnant again. I have used this pram to death, rain wind or shine. On the beach, up & down mountains. My recommendations would be, service it regularly, get the rain cover & the little tray attachment at the front so you can feed plenty of snacks with less mess. And the drink older for mumsies morning coffee/tea/water. I read other people talk abo... Read moreut the wheel wobble, it does do that sometimes, but it’s usually to do with a combination of uneven road, uneven load. You need to make sure the wheels are pumped up properly. And that your hands are evenly spaced on top bar. I have run 1000’s of km with this pram on rough & sealed roads. I think as well you need to check if the front wheel needs to be locked or unlocked for different road types. I think it’s a fab pram. It’s designed for various different terrains & it’s just working out how to use it properly. Enjoy!!
Worst decision I’ve ever madeThis pram was meant to be my ‘me time’. I bought this running pram so I could run after having my baby and get back into shape. Not an unrealistic expectation.
From the moment I assembled this pram and tried to exercise with it, not even run with it, I just started out power walking, it’s been a headache and absolute waste of my personal time.
The front wheel shakes so hard at times it makes the pram unsafe for bubs and impossible to exercise with. I was not unproductive in my attempts to sort this issue, spending hours on the phone with supp... Read moreort, emailing the seller and manufacturer, online forums, online discussions with the company, a trip to the pram doctor, a trip back to head office for another service, many trips back to the seller. I always went in looking for this flaw in this running pram to be resolved, as it’s meant to be a running pram, if I can’t run or exercise with it, I’d have saved my money and bought a basic stroller. After months, and months of effort and annoyance and being without a safe pram for use while my pram got services and reviews, (and let me add that my pram was still in warranty and that is The only reason they dealt with me), they finally turned around and said the problem was all me. That the problem is ‘user error’. I was furious as i had followed the silly manual and locked the front wheel after each service to exercise with (allowing me to only run in a straight, all the time, very uncomfortable to adjust and it kept veering to the left anyway). This is rubbish as I’ve read so many reviews online about this pram recently seeing many people with my exact issue. So now I can be offered no refund, no credit and they won’t deal with me and their average product I can’t use for its intended purpose. I’m emotionally drained and disappointed.
It’s great for low impact useI use this pram for running and at first it was amazing.. compared to the bugaboo runner Which I initially used it was all I needed... and now it’s really not great. The front wheel wobbles uncontrollably at any given time. It wasn’t bad at first but now 8 months on and it’s unbearable.. when it happens my daughter hits her head on the side and it makes the pram uncontrollable. If you are using it for walking it’s great! But running is a big no! For the price I paid, I’m very disappointed as a runner. Show details
Best pram ever for walks and runsI really enjoy using it. Really easy to manoeuvre. Easy to fold and unfold. It can hold all of my kids at once. One is sitting on lap of the other one and the 3d on a board behind the pram! The only problem it’s heavy. So I have a spare pram in a car for the shops run.
Excellent Pram - has run many Km's!!We love this pram. Before I had children I used to run a few marathons every year. As soon as I was cleared for exercise post birth - this pram has been thrashed!!
I have used it on paths, sealed roads and unsealed roads. The suspension can handle some rough surfaces without disturbing the baby (within reason). I find the front wheel easy to switch between fixed and moving.
The seat lies nice and flat and is easy to adjust. The hood is very deep and you can have it at 3 different settings. It rides very smooth and operates well with one ... Read morehand. I chose this pram over the Bob because a lot of the reviews I read said the Bob was not ideal for taller children. The X3 has a taller height clearance - which is ideal for my family. It is super easy to collapse... It is heavy... But the weight is worth all the other benefits.
Best thing I have ever purchased... couldn't live without itI regularly take this pram on bush tracks for both running and walking, its all wheel suspension is amazing amd handles any terrain you take it on. Is very easy to fold... pretty much one step and its done... quite lightweight but as has big wheels it does tend to take up a little more boot space than some other brands. It is very easy to maneuver and my favorite part is the front wheel locking mechanism is controlled within hands reach so you can flick it on and off without letting go of the handlebar. Adjusting the seat height is a little an... Read morenoying but not terrible. The handlebar is not adjustable which is again annoying for a short person like me but really its okay once you get used to it. Suncover is a 3 panel which is perfect length to ensure little one is shaded at all times. The overall length is quite short which is handy when trying to fit through gates ect... the build quality is great also, overall it is a very neat and tidy pram. Definitely recommend for all terrain running and walking pretty much a perfect all-rounder.
Excellent Pram!SO easy to drive this pram, just with one hand, the other can hold coffee! We have had issues folding it after removing the seat for washing but it is solved OK. Easy to wash the whole thing as well. It is a bit heavy and not very practical to place in the car because it is massive, but our toddler loves it and is sitting well high so can easily see around.
We have the carry bag for plane travels, I can only recommend it because it is an option that I was looking for in a pram. The front bar is great, our toddler prefers it rather than the co... Read morensole. For running and difficult terrain it is perfect. The suspensions are brilliant, better than my bike and I really like the back system to incline the seat. The basket under the seat can hold anything, baby essentials bag, groceries and shopping. The rain cover is average but can hold against windy weather because the front is well designed. I really enjoy the console on the hand bar while it can be annoying with the hand break, but I could work with it.
Stay Away, Faulty Front WheelWe have had ongoing problems with the front wheel of this pram. The front wheel wobbles terribly when we walk with it, we are no chance of running with it. We called baby jogger & they were hardly sympathetic, unfortunately we did buy this pram secondhand (6 months old) we can only assume the original buyer was aware this. Yes if you have a warranty you can get a new front wheel replacement, from my experience however I would not advise you to purchase this pram!
Practically perfect in every way....nowThis is our fourth pram in four and a half months. We bought other brands which proved to be terrible and faulty - to the point of being dangerous. Then, finally, we bought the baby jogger x3. Best pram EVER!!!
When we bought it, the front wheel made a noise. I contacted the company. They were brilliant. They seemed genuinely concerned and requested a video (as it was hard to isolate exactly where the noise came from). Within a week, we had a new front wheel at our door and haven't had a problem since. We had bought the pram from bubs in fort... Read moreitude valley for $750. My baby loves this pram. If we put her in another one, she cries and squirms the entire time. This makes me think that the summit has a very comfortable seat. It looks and feels it. It adjusts easily to any position. The pram is also incredibly manoeuvrable. You wouldn't think so, considering it size. Its light and easy to push over any terrain (within reason, of course). Deep basket. Haven't had anything fall out of it and we stock it right up. We also have put bike lights on it for night walks. Easy done. The hand brake is brilliant, as we live in a hilly area. I would recommend this pram over other brands, any day, for both the quality and the great customer service. No regrets. Finally!!
Have the X3 model-better than the XCUnable to review the Summit X3 on here. The X3 is the latest model released (2014) compared to the XC (2012).
The x3 is extremely easy to handle - can push with one hand with great ease. It also has a handbrake to help slow you down the hills. I have found the best feature is the fact that you can lock the front wheel (so that it only pushes straight) on the side of the pram. This means when you're running you don't need to go to the front of the pram to lock/unlock the wheel to turn a sharp corner.
The tyres are good - although they do ... Read moreneed pumping up every couple of months to keep them at a decent pressure. Weight of the pram is a little heavy, but you don't notice that when pushing it. The canopy is very good - two peekaboo windows and two mesh ones on the side to let the air through. The seat itself is quite large, my son has a lot of room to sit, cross his legs etc. I'm so glad I didn't skimp on this purchase. Other baby purchases I've looked back and thought - didn't really need to spend that much $$, but I'm glad I spent the money on this pram.
Fantastic pram that is so light to pushI love this pram. It has been everywhere with us including overseas trips. It is very versatile as you can fix the front wheel and use it for jogging or difficult surfaces like sand at the beach, or just allow it to pivot for normal use. It is an easy one hand push and I have found it so much easy to push even when compared to decent European style prams such as the Quinny Buzz and Joolz Day. It can also take a child up to 35kg so good when my boy is older and he wants to come for a run with me.
Even though this is a large pram, it is actually... Read morequite lightweight when compared to other fully featured prams at 11kgs (the new Elite is 10.8). It has a hand brake which is very useful and reassuring when going down hills. It also has the standard foot brake. I think the new Elite has a hand brake, but when I bought this the Elite didnt. I bought imported mine from the States as at the time they were selling for $999 here and the old (360) model. Now you can get the XC here for a bit over $600. The recline is gradual as it uses a cord system instead of pressing a button. We have taken on several overseas trips and we just take it up to where we board the plane and they take it from there. We also have the carry bag and have packed it in that for travel as well.t has been great to have travelling as it can get over cobblestones and rough trails easily. We have even taken bushwalking when I had a sore back and couldn't use the carrier. The mesh basket area on the back is great to put things in. The basket underneath can be a bit difficult to get to sometimes. But if you get the BJ Nappy Bag, this just fixes on the side and the basket underneath is good for smaller things. The accessories can be expensive but they are handy. We got the parent console (which I use all the time) and the belly bar with the console for the child. The bar can be a bit high, but it is handy to put toys etc in. When my boy was a baby we had the bassinet which you can pick up easily enough second hand and we also used the Maxi Cosi car seat to make a travel system. The bassinet and the car seat use the same adapters. The hood on this pram is brilliant and huge and with the recline it is really a great little hide away for a sleeping child. The child does sit back quite far in the pram though which is great for sun protection etc, but now my boy is a toddler I do find him sometimes pulling himself forward a bit to have a look around. It is a very well made pram and we have had no issues with it. The rear wheels are large at 16" but this is what makes it so easy to push and it also has suspension. The wheel base at the back is wide, but surprisingly, even though it looks large, it is actually not much larger than many of the other standard prams I have looked at. This can be a bit of an issue if you are going in and out of shops. I have an umbrella stroller I keep in the car for shopping. The one handed fold on this is brilliant and it folds up reasonably small. We compared this with the Mountain Buggy Terrain which is similar and the fold on that is huge. The material is very quick dry and keeps them cool in summer, but we put a sheepskin on it for winter. Very easy to push, tackles any terrain, easy one handed fold, brilliant sun protection,great quality, verstatile large for shopping aisles/cafes
