The best jogging strollers serve a very specific purpose: You strap your kid into one, and go for a run. Unlike traditional baby strollers, joggers are built to buffer your baby along the bumpiest of rides by featuring three super-sized wheels, rear- or all-wheel suspension, shock absorbers, and brakes ⏤ either traditional parking or hand-activated drum brakes designed to help you slow down when necessary.

Most jogging strollers are geared toward babies age six-months or older, since an infant’s neck muscles aren’t strong enough to withstand even the most casual of fun runs. But once you’re ready to hit the road, you’ll want to study these three-wheelers carefully as not all joggers are created equal.

You want a lockable swivel front wheel that gives you stability on long runs and maneuverability on short strolls. Taller parents and caregivers want an adjustable handlebar so they’re not stooped over by the time they cross the finish line. Plus, you want a stroller with a smooth, easy fold; a wrist tether or strap is another necessity in the event that you lose control of the stroller. All the jogging strollers on our list fit the bill.
