BOB has been long known as one of the best brands on the baby strollers market, producing some of the most outstanding double jogging strollers known to the industry – and the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie Stroller makes no exception.
With a lightweight frame, reclining seats, lockable front wheel and built-in accessory adapter for attaching a snack tray or an infant car seat, the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie double jogger stroller makes the perfect choice for parents who want to stay in shape and enjoy running with their little ones on the board.
We have put together an in-depth review of the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie Stroller to help you make an informed decision.

The BOB Revolution Double Jogging Stroller delivers a smooth running performance thanks to its pneumatic air tires, which minimize impact and shock when the terrain is uneven or bumpy.
The back wheels are larger than the front one, which makes it easy to turn corners or avoid obstacles if desired.
Moreover, the front wheel is lockable for effortless straight-line strolling, preventing it from swiveling and providing better control over the direction of the stroller as well.
At the same time, the stroller has a padded handle bar, which offers a better grip and enhances comfort as well.
Even when both kids are buckled in, the stroller will be quite lightweight to push, so your jogging routine won’t be affected by the extra weight.
Unfortunately, there is no parent tray or cup holder for your drink of choice, but you can still use the seatback pockets for this purpose.
The BOB Revolution Double Jogging Stroller is equipped with many notable features that make it safe for your children.
Both seats have individual 5-point harness systems that are padded for comfort, allowing you to conveniently adjust them to provide a custom fit that will keep your little ones securely buckled in.
Safety is further enhanced by the adjustable suspension system, which has two-position shock absorbers that help absorb shock of impact in the event that the stroller tips, making its all-terrain performance absolutely outstanding (but more on this below).
The front wheel can be locked forward to prevent swiveling, ensuring that the stroller will not turn sideways while you’re running, hence preventing a host of undesirable effects.
The wheel can be locked with just a twist of a knob, making it possible to successfully stroll on uneven, bumpy terrain that might cause the stroller to change direction on its own.
One last safety feature is the efficient braking system of the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie Double Jogger Stroller. This BOB stroller allows you to quickly engage the rear-wheel brake with your foot, taking just one second or so to lock the unit in a stopped position.
What’s more, you also get a wrist strap that conveniently secures the handle bad to your hands while jogging, a feature that isn’t available with the Schwinn Turismo Swivel Double Jogger or InStep Safari Double Swivel Stroller.
Ease of Use:
We find the BOB Revolution Double Jogging Stroller extremely easy to use and intuitive. In the first place, the stroller has a Low Boy Cargo Basket that provides undercarriage storage, offering just the right amount of space for bottles, toys, snacks, diapers, and more.
Storage is further enhanced by the seatback and internal seat pockets, which also allow you to conveniently store essentials inside, though they won’t be within very easy reach.
The two independent multi-position sun canopies can be adjusted for better protection against elements. They feature large-viewing windows that allow you to keep an eye on your little ones during the ride, so you will be able to see if they need anything – a feature that’s also included with the InStep Safari Double Swivel Stroller.
One of the major drawbacks of the BOB Revolution SE Duallie stroller is the absence of a kid or parent tray. If you want one, you will have to purchase it individually, which will obviously add to the cost of the stroller.
While the seatback and internal seat pockets will largely replace the trays, they won’t be as efficient and easy to reach.
The BOB Revolution Flex Duallie stroller also has an Accessory Adapter that allows you to fit only one BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter and create a complete travel system.
We noticed that, when the infant car seat is attached, the width of the stroller makes it impossible to fit it through doors, so you may want to wait until you get outside to attach it.
As already specified, the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie double jogging stroller delivers an amazing all-terrain performance thanks to its large rear wheels, which make it easy to control the unit.
The pneumatic air tires offer additional support for strolling on uneven terrain, minimizing impact in the event that the road is bumpy. The adjustable suspension system also contributes to delivering a smooth ride, keeping both kids comfortable while allowing you to push seamlessly.
We also appreciated the high quality of materials used for manufacturing this BOB Revolution double jogger stroller. The frame is made of high-strength chromoly and aluminum, which, according to several customers who have reviewed this stroller, outlasts most competing products.
One customer has reported that the BOB model is even stronger than the Baby Trend Expedition Double Jogger Stroller, which is a reputed big player of the baby strollers industry.
On the other hand, the seat cover is made of Poly and Dobby weave fabrics, which have water-repelling coatings to help prevent stains and ensure that children will stay dry if liquids are accidentally spilled.
The open-cell foam padding adds extra comfort to the seats, ensuring that your little ones will never squirm for a better position.
Folded Size & Weight:
Folded size, wheels on: swivel mode – 39 x 16 inches; jogging mode – 44.5 x 16 inches
Folded size, wheels off: swivel mode – 34.5 x 13 inches; jogging mode – 39 x 11 inches
Folding the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie Double Jogging Stroller is relatively easy thanks to its two-step folding mechanism. However, you will need two hands to fold it down to a more compact size, which is a drawback if your baby can’t sit unassisted on the sidewalk.
Several customers have reported that, when folded, the stroller fits nicely in most car trunks, unlike larger models that can be a pain to transport.
Ease of Setup:
The assembly of this BOB Revolution double jogger stroller is very easy and intuitive. You only need to put the wheels on, which can get your stroller up and ready for a run in less than 10 minutes.
Even if you have no past experience assembling strollers, you still be able to quickly put this one together, as the instructions are detailed and easy to follow.
Generally, the BOB Revolution Double Jogging Stroller makes a superb jogging stroller, so we highly recommend it to parents who want to run with their babies on board.
The unit is easy to push and maneuver, delivering a smooth ride that will make strolling a pleasure for both you and your kids. Still, this BOB unit remains a popular choice for parents looking for a stroller that they can use in any situation, from going to the grocery store to walking in the park.
All-in-all, the BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller remains one of the best double jogging strollers on the current market, and also our absolute favorite. With tons of features that make it very easy to use, comfortable and convenient, the stroller will keep you at peace and safe in the knowledge that your kids are always securely buckled in while you’re enjoying your run.
