Great pram to take absolutely everywhere!
We absolutely love our Thule Pram! The lightweight and great suspension of the pram make it ideal all terrain pram; from paddock to beach.
It is easy to set up and pack down. Plenty of storage.
Cleaning and maintenance are also not strenuous.
Only thing I wish for is that the double seater was not so bulky. Not sure what we will do when its time to give our bub a sibling....
Purchased in May 2020 at Hear For Less for $799.00.
Expensive and very disappointing
We bought this to replace our heavy, slightly impractical chicco. Got the whole kit including capsule adaptor. It’s not cheap, but the videos and reviews sold it to us.
Firstly it’s a nightmare to fold and unfold. You have to lean down one end to grab the handle, pull then twist then try to fold with the other hand from the far end of the pram. Unless you’re Mr Fantastic, you’ll end up smashing the frame against your shin. When you try to unfold it, you’re pulling the opposite side of the frame lock so the harder you pull the frame locks upon...itself again. The handle bar is another thoughtless design. You need two hands to fold it for some reason (it’s not dangerous machinery, so why use two hands to unlock?). This means you need to fold the pram first, then hold it in the air or flip it on its side to fold the handles do it can fit the extremely long chassis into your average car boot. If you don’t like it, you can buy a ute to fit the pram. It’s a bad idea to try yo outsmart the not-so-smart design by folding the handlebars first, for when it comes to fold the pram, they will clash with the brakes and won’t lock. If you bought a bassinet, like we did, you’ll need the full boot for the pram, maybe the back seat too. There is a slide at the bottom of the bassinet that allegedly folds it flat, until it doesn’t. You have to first empty everything in the bassinet, including the lining, then flip it upside down to access the slide, then use three hands, yes.. three hands, to control the slide and compress the bassinet. It still doesn’t fold exactly flat and still has the two stubs that attach to the frame sticking out to annoy you. Don’t get me started about the wheels. How on earth are you expected to remove them with the pram folded? You will need to turn it, hold with one hand, remove the wheel, drop it somewhere, somehow turn it to the other side without your fingers getting caught, then repeat. Cool, so I mastered that, how can I put them on again? By myself? On a rainy day? Crying child? With a bassinet that sits halfway across the universe because it doesn’t fit in the boot? The online video reviews make it look so easy. It’s not. It’s not the lightest either, or narrowest, or shortest... so why is it that expensive?

Very good pram
We purchased for running and as a general pram when our baby was 6-9 months old. It is great. We got the black/grey version to hide dirt better. It collapses well. we ended up getting the centre console, snack tray and rain 'jacket'. We are pleased with them all, but don't use the rain coat very often. It is great to run with, but we did have to slightly take it apart to tighten the lock mechanism for the front wheel. Ours would not remain centred which would make the pram pull either direction (very annoying). I am decently mechanically inclined, so it was an easy adjustment, but wasn't an official recommended fix, just something that worked for me.

- Urban Glide
Love this stroller!
Bought this stroller as live in an area with gravel walking/running trails and have found it to be an excellent fit for us. Large air filled wheels (like bike tyres, but smaller), combined with excellent suspension give a relatively smooth ride, even on rough terrain and have not yet found a surface it can't handle. Basket underneath is large enough to hold a decent amount of stuff, an net pocket on the back of the seat is great for keys, wallet etc. Sturdy quality, seems like it will last many years. Very light and manoeuvrable, able to be turned around in not much space and steered with only one hand due to three wheel design, although be careful as three wheels is not as stable as four. Easy to pack/set up.
Love my Urban Glide!
The Thule Urban Glide is a great stroller if you want to do a lot of walking, or even jogging. The large wheels are great over uneven ground and also when you have to go half off a path due to other people coming the other way. The excellent suspension means your little one is not being jarred all the time. There is heaps of storage space in the undercarriage compartment, and the zip pocket is so handy to keep your phone and wallet secure and close. I've used it with a capsule and there is lots of room to do your shopping, especially if you lie the stroller back flat. It's a really awesome set of wheels.
Love this pram would buy again!
Wanted a beach, jogger, walker and something that could be used in the mall if needed. This is our 2nd pram for our baby, 1st is the Stokke Xplory V4. Reason we got Thule is because we needed something that could go off road and over mixed surfaces. I would recommend to all this pram its so light and easy to fold up, fits in the back of small hatchback boot, wheels fold under which is better than Mountain Buggy versions saves the baby seat from getting dirty. The quality is beautiful and nice streamline design. Wheels are very easy to disconnec...t you can do it single handed, although I find two hands easier. Storage is great, and side pockets in seat are awesome for baby toys. Disadvantages would be that it does have a wide wheel base so at cafes it gets in the way. Also none of the extras come with pram they're a separate purchase i.e. mosquito net and rain cover etc. Overall love it, would recommend to all!
A fantastic looking stroller if you don't want to use it for jogging
I purchased this jogger from baby bunting after reading wonderful reviews online. To take around the shops this pram is narrow but long, it turns really well. I had to take one wheel off the fit it in the boot which was tedious, even though the wheels in the instructional videos look simple to take off they required some force to remove. I took it jogging twice along a path some of which is sandy/gravel and some sealed. I adjusted the locked wheel so it was straight, started running and it was veering to the right. I had to readjust the tr...acking every 100m or so but it kept veering back to the right. I returned it back to Baby Bunting for a reluctant refund, they said they had another with tracking problems. Now having talked to others about this issue it seems quite common for them to have issues with the front wheel and also the frame being bent or breaking easily. Please reconsider other options if you're planning on buying this pram, it is beautiful but not practical. I now have a BOB Ironman on order.
Questions & Answers
Can I put my four month old baby in the Thule Urban Glide?
Depends on the four month old and what you want to do. We got ours when our baby was ~3 months old, but he also had quite good head control, and we didn't run with him in it for a while. There really isn't much head support, so keep in mind speed/surface and your child's neck strength/head control.
That said, Thule does sell a capsule attachment. It is an add on that allows you to use a capsule (not sure on what it is designed to be compatible with), but its probably on Thule's website (https://www.thule.com/en-gb/au/strollers/strollers-accessories/thule-urban-glide-car-seat-adapter-universal-_-1684827)
sorry, Thule also makes a separate bassinet attachment as well
