Are you a mom on the go? Maybe you value your personal health and fitness and want to keep that active lifestyle even after baby arrives. Or you may just appreciate the sporty style of a jogging stroller. No matter what category you fit into, this beautiful jogger by Joovy is sure to capture your attention. You might be familiar with Joovy as a brand from our last feature on a beautiful double stroller Caboose Too Ultralight.
The Jogging Stroller You Need: Joovy Zoom 306
Adjustable Seat Position
The Joovy Zoom 360 allows for you to start strolling with your infant at 3 months old without needing an infant seat adapter. How do they do it? The easy-to-adjust seat reclines all the way down to a flat position, allowing for your baby to ride smoothly and comfortably while still being safe and secure in the Zoom 360.
The Zoom 360 accommodates babies from 3 months old to children up to 75 pounds!
Due to the Zoom 360 being made from 6061 aircraft grade aluminum and 600D fabric, it rides (and drives!) like a dream. The shocks on the Zoom 360 are steady and can smooth out even a rough trail terrain with their shock absorbing suspension.
The Zoom 360 also offers a functional, swivel front wheel that allows for easy maneuverability during your day but also the ability to lock with a single flip of the switch (located right above the front wheel) which allows you to transition to a jog on the street or trails without changing strollers!
An easy-to-use brake on the right back wheel allows for ease of parking the Zoom 360. You won't be fumbling around with any complicated brakes or trying to lock the wheel in place, you simply push the red brake lever by the wheel and you're parked!
The Joovy Zoom 360 boasts an included neoprene parent organizer with 2 insulated drink holders and a zippered pocket for storing keys, cell phones, cash, pacifiers or other small incidentals that you like to have near at hand.
Of course, you can't just bring along some cash and your iPhone on a jog or errands around town! You also need a place to keep the diaper bag, your little one's snacks, toys and you still want to have some room after all of that to be able to add in a grocery sack or two. The roomy storage basket in the Joovy Zoom 360 allows so much room that you just might have a difficult time filling it up!
We cannot forget to mention the two side-panel mesh pockets on either side of the seat for keeping baby's bottle, pacifier or a small toy or two handy for your tot. An additional mesh pocket in the rear allows easy access for some magazines, an extra water bottle or snacks for you!
Many strollers come with a window for mom to see into the stroller to check on her little rider. However, what sets Joovy apart is that they don't use a mesh, unsustainable, non-weatherproof panel. Instead, the Joovy Zoom 360 features a clear vinyl window beneath a "curtain" that can be rolled up to see your little one, or use the Velcro to secure it so that you keep the sun off of your tyke's head.
If you thought the included parent organizer and tire pump were unheard of, let Joovy go a step further. When you purchase the Zoom 360, Joovy wants you to absolutely love it, and that means no wishing for this feature or that feature, because the Zoom 360 has it all! Even a rain cover! This rain cover protects the entirety of your child's seat from footrest to the back of the seat. It allows for ultimate comfort with its side ventilation holes and is secured by Velcro straps to the posts of the stroller.
Fold, Store, Go
Folding the Joovy is incredibly simple. It features an easy-to-see tab which lets you know where the folding mechanisms are. You simply unfasten the Velcro, pull up on the red "Fold" wire whilst pushing up on the red locking mechanism and in 3 steps your Zoom 360 is folded into a compact shape which fits in the trunks of even the smallest compact cars. However, if you want to make it fit in that tight space, simply take off the wheels and you have a slim silhouette to your folded Zoom 360!
