The BEST running double pram
I have twins and this pram allows me to get out and exercise with them in tow. It is super manoeuvrable and pushes easily without noticing all the weight in the pram. The only time when I do notice the weight of the pram itself though it when trying to get it into my car, it is quite bulky and is solid (a bit of a trade off as I feel the weight contributes to the pram feeling safe and stable as you’re running).
Because of the big wheels, there’s no problems pushing this on any terrain: grass, gravel, dirt and it gets up and down gutters easi...ly. I did manage to puncture the tyres once when I walked through a bunch of thorny weeds but replacing the tubes was simple enough by getting them from a bike store and husband was able to install them. Has a large sunshade with 2 retractable positions so it can really shield well in full sun and when kids are sleeping it also affords a nice dark area. Sunshades also have a peek a boo window (which has solid cover over the top which can be retracted) in them so you can keep an eye on the children. Storage is ample with pockets next to the seats where kids can stash their toys, under storage is probably not enough for going shopping but perfect if just out for a run, there’s also pockets behind the seats. I have a lot of accessories for this and I feel that a couple of them are almost a must. The handlebar console is a must for drink bottles on the go when running plus to store keys and phone. The dual snack tray which clips on really helps keep the kids entertained with food if you want to have more time out, it also keeps the kids in their seat more securely in additional to the 5 point harness. I also had the rain cover which you’ll need if it’s pouring down but otherwise if it’s just drizzling the sunshades are really sufficient. The wind/sunshield I only used on a couple of occasions but it did make it hotter in the pram.
This pram is such a joy to push! I have a big 2yr old boy and a tiny 4month old girl and you would not pick which child is on what side of the pram! I sold my mountain buggy duet to buy the Bob revolution Pro Duallie and I'm so glad I did!! Where I live the footpaths ain't level, they mostly slope towards the street. With 3 wheels the pram for not pull to any particular side and I no longer experience wrist or upper back pain from trying to keep to front of pram moving in a straight line like I did with the 4 wheel pram. What I don't like ...about it is the recline is annoying, also it's very wide the sides where the suspension and hood attsches Is wider than the wheel base and it only just fits through a standard door way IF the door opens more then 140°. It if a heavy ram to lift but feels so lightweight to push!
Questions & Answers
I am wanting to buy a double pram, big wheels, ample sun shade and easy to push on rough dirt terrain ... my first thought was the baby jogger summit double (but it is not sold In Australia) and then I saw this pram .... it’s very very similar to the Summit
Any other advice you would give (I don’t have a newborn so the recline not an issue )
Hi I haven’t seen the summit double but when I had a bob single and saw the summit single the main thing that stood out was that the Bob seemed more solid and had larger wheels to be able to handle rough terrain better. The other thing that was noticeable was that the summit was more compact so maybe have a look at comparable sizes. I loved my Bob double which I used for all my outdoors activities and jogging but I had another double (mountain buggy) to use day to day for the shops so it wasn’t an issue that the Bob was quite wide. The sunshade on the Bob has amazing coverage and it was a comfortable ride for the kids even on rough terrain.
Hi Jessica, thanks for your question. For spare parts, pricing and availability, please email us at email@example.com and please check on the underside of your pram for a sticker with the cat number and batch date so we can try and locate a part for you. Kind regards, the BOB team.
Hi I am considering buying the BoB duallie Pro but would like to know if it is possible to use babycot on one side and not on the other (for a newborn and a 18-month for instance)?
HI Jul, thanks for your question. The BOB Revolution Duallie isn't compatible with babycot (bassinet) however you can use a capsule with this stroller. Please feel free to give us a call on 1300 303 330 if you would like to discuss this with us. Kind regards, the BOB team.
