Worst decision I’ve ever made
This 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...
It’s great for low impact use
I 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.
Purchased in March 2018 for A$849.00.
Best pram ever for walks and runs
I 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 ...hand. 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 it
I 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...noying 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.
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...
Stay Away, Faulty Front Wheel
We 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....now
This 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...
Have the X3 model-better than the XC
Unable 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 ...need 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.
Fantastic pram that is so light to push
I 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...
