Best pram for walkers and light jogs!
Seriously an amazing pram. I've walked countless kms in it from newborn to 2yo. The easiest pram to manoeuvre, and although it looks wide with the big wheels, it's skinnier than some friends smaller prams.
Under carriage storage zips up so it's quite secure. I've had no troubles on any surface. I've had a couple of punctures, but the positives with pump tyres faroutweigh a few flats. Always carry a hand pump!
It's a tough pram, my husband reversed over it, winched it back to shape, and it still works! He was in a world of trouble!!
Been really happy with it
This pram is great for walking. It goes over curbs, grass, road etc. without issue. It is good to jog with - we only find the back wheels wobble when they need air. If we keep the tyres pumped then it goes along smoothly when jogging - our daughter seems quite secure. The storage space underneath holds quite a bit. I do wish the cover came down further to protect her from direct sunlight though. It is a bit bulky to get in and out of a car. We remove one wheel (easy enough) to get it into the boot of a sedan - but we don't tend to travel with i...t in the car that much. It has been perfect for a couple who like to walk in the Blue Mountains. Sturdy and safe, goes over bumpy terrain, lots of storage Cover should come down further to create more shade
I'm happy with mine
I wanted to get a jogging stroller that I could use to run with my infant, and go for walks with my pre-schooler with the baby in a sling. We live in a rural area, and the road is not the best. I first tried the MB in the shop, and the BOB revolution. The BOB was lighter and much smoother to drive around the shop floor, while the MB was a bit heavier and bouncier with more suspension. I bought the BOB, but when I got home and tried in the garage with my 3-year-old I saw that she was slumped far back, and the seat back couldn't be put up more to...give her the opportunity to look out. Something I had read in another review. Also, she would grow out of the BOB very soon. I want my kids to be actively engaged when walking or running, meaning they can easily look out and view the world. So I took the stroller back and got the MB. I have been very happy with it so far. The benefits compared to the BOB are: Firstly, it looks great. Secondly, the more raised seat allows especially older babies and toddlers to look out. The bar that sits across the seat is also nice for older ones to hold onto. The sun shade is excellent. The handle bars are adjustable, which is good for me being a bit short, and also means my pre-schooler can push it with the baby in it. The hand break has been good because we have a very steep driveway. I have jogged with it a few times, and it has been great on our uneven roads. I have also walked with it across a field, and that was fine too. We took it on a trip to NZ. Took the wheels of and wrapped the whole thing in bubble wrap to go on the plane, instead of buying expensive travel bag. It is definitely bulky and heavy, and we didn't use it enough to make it worth while on the trip. But if you are going to be doing a lot of walking, it is do-able. seat keeps child upright, works well for jogging and uneven terrain, hand-brake, adjustable handle bars expensive
Good running pram
I researched running prams for a long time before finally deciding to purchase the Mountain Buggy Terrain. It feels very sturdy and I mainly use it for jogging on roads, I also take it to the beach and walking. The Terrain doesn't push through soft sand but is fine on hard sand. I don't usually lock the front wheel in while running as I have corners that I need to turn and people to dodge, however whether the front wheel is locked or not all wheels wobble significantly when running at anything above a slow speed on a flat surface or if you are ...running down hill. It seems fine when running up hills... even using the break doesn't stop the wheels from wobbling. Additionally there is not much air flow through the pram as there are no canopies that can be rolled up or back to allow air flow through as my smaller stroller has, which means I often get a very sweaty baby out at the end of a job. I purchased the sun cover for this pram as well which works well. There are probably better prams out there for running that don't wobble so much but this would be a good pram to select if you are looking for an off roading pram. The hand brake also tends to pull the pram to one side when pressed. Sturdy and good for off roading Wheels wobble when running, lacks ventilation and becomes very hot inside, hand brake pulls pram to one side.
Great for the farm!
It took me a long time to find a pram that suits being in the outdoors and getting a little rough! It is just great for pushing around the paddocks, through mud, down steep hills, over cattle grids and along gravel roads. I wouldn't recommend going faster than a brisk walk on these uneven surfaces but bub has never complained and rather enjoys being rocked around. I find the suspension wonderful- takes out so much of the impact when on the farm, the hand break is great when going down those steep bits and all that space for storage is just fant...astic! I have found i need to take the back wheels off in different cars but as it's so easy it doesn't bother me. I also love how simple it is to put the rain cover on when your in a hurry and the sun protection cover is just great for our hot summer days. Great suspension. Lots of storage, hard wearing, easy to fit accessories Might be too wide for some car boots
Light and versatile, but a hard run
I spent months researching the best hybrid pram, one that I could use at the shops if need be, but most importantly one I could run with. Prior to falling pregnant I was running marathons and having tge freedom to get out and run when I could after having bub was very important to me. Based on my research this was the best option with its light weight, suspension, lockable front wheel and hand brake which was very important to me. The pram performs great off road and the suspension is great over all sorts of terrain, however I found running wit...h it difficult for a couple of reasons 1. When running at any sort of speed the back wheels wobble 2. No matter how much we tighten the handbrake its not particilarly strong 3. Its pretty hard to push on bitumen, which means I gave to try and plan my run around concrete bike paths. For the expense I would expect the pram to be a bit more rigid, in trying to make it light weight I think some structural integrity has been sacrificed (hence the wobbly wheels).I have a Toyota Carolla four door hatch and it just squeezes in the back on its side with both rear wheels removed (and our parcel shelf taken out of the car). This is generally a fantastically light weight, easy to push and versatile pram if you're not an avid runner. We have ended up using an Ergobaby carrier while out walking and I try to go for runs when bub is being minded by someone else. In hinsight it might have been better to get a dedicated running pram, but I'm not sure they'd handle uneven terrain as well. Light weight, lockable/swivelable front wheel, adjustable handle bar, large rear wheels, easy to pish while walking, great on all terrain, sun and shade cover are effective, two water bottle holders Wobbly rear wheels, handbrake not strong enough, hard to push while running on most surfaces except smooth concrete, suspension means small bubs bounce around a lot if running at speed, expensive
Great pram but not for jogging
I did a lot of research (maybe not enough) before buying this pram as I really wanted a MB and I believe they're a fantastic pram. I purchased the Terrain due to wanting to use it for jogging. Should have bought an Urban or Swift and then purchased a specific jogging pram like a BOB. As a 3-wheeler pram for going off roads when walking, it's awesome. It's got loads of fantastic features that I love but has really let me down in the jogging front. I've even had to take it into a bike store for servicing. Not recommended as a jogging pram.
Best pram I've ever used
I did alot of research on prams with my 4th child because I'd had so many different kinds for my other children (some bought, some given) and I never quite had the perfect one for my needs.
Mountain Buggy Terrain is a very smooth pram to push and jog with. I love the adjustable handle and ease of use. It is easy to fold, light for lifting into the car, has a sizable carry basket underneath and it looks stylish too. I have the carrycot to match and I've foregone a bassinette to used the carrycot instead and this has been great for me. I also...
We really had a great experience with this pram, and our baby was very happy in it, summer & winter. My brother had the Elite and also enjoyed that.
We bought this so that exercising with our new baby would be easy, and she would be comfortable. - comfy ride due to inflatable tyres- easy to fold- good luggage capacity underseat- straight direction when running
- rubber handgrip wore a little, couldn't easily replace- bit hard to pump up tyres due to valve angle
