Today, BOB strollers are some of the most popular running and jogging strollers on the market. But did you know that the company was actually founded with the idea of making bike trailers? While it had some early success with the bike trailers, the company ultimately pivoted to the baby stroller market, and the rest is history. Today, BOB strollers are among the most popular in the country, and control a large share of the tens of thousands of strollers sold in the U.S. each year.
BOB jogging strollers are just one of the many products the company sells to the market. They also sell accessories for bike trailers (still), all kinds of strollers from joggers to everyday strollers, and also make car seats.
BOB Off-Road and On-Road Strollers
Their line of off-road, on-road fitness strollers are perfect for everyday use, and can go from the mall to the trail easily. This line is their most popular and best selling strollers, and there are currently nine different strollers in this category. Their most popular in this category are the 2016 Revolution FLEX and the 2016 Revolution PRO. Both of these models come in single or dual seats, and make for the perfect everyday stroller AND jogging stroller.
BOB Long-Distance Strollers
If you and your baby have Ironman aspirations, then you might need a stroller that is built for speed and for distance. The Ironman series strollers come in a single seat or double seat, and features sleeker, 16” aluminum wheels, state-of-the-art suspension system, and hand braking system for added control when going downhill.
BOB Exploration Strollers
The Rough and Rugged Exploration series of stroller feature many of the same things as the off-road, on-road strollers, but take it a step further with a tougher suspension and more rugged tires. These models also come in single seat and double seat variations and are great for anyone looking to regularly take baby off-road and outdoors.
Britax Car Seats
In 2011, BOB was acquired by Britax, the car seat and stroller giant who helped BOB design a great car seat that can be used in both their jogging strollers as well as for in the car. The BOB B-SAFE 35 by Britax is one of the safest and most coveted car seat in the market, and is the perfect product for parents who also own the stroller to quickly transition from car to stroller without having to take baby out of her seat.
Accessories and Bike Trailers
One of their most popular accessories is the Britax B-Safe Car Seat Base, which can be installed in cars so that their car seat can be removed and locked back in without having to re-fasten the seatbelt. This is great for moms and dads who can each have a base in their car and easily move baby from one car to the other.
For parents who not only want to take their baby carrier from car to car, but also allow them to use the same car seat in their stroller, they should look into the 2016 Single Infant Car Seat Adapter. This adapter works for all Britax car seats dating back to 2011. You’ll still need to buy the car seat and base, but this is a relatively cheap accessory that works great if you have many BOB products and want to take advantage of everything they have to offer.
Of course, BOB offers more accessories that work for strollers and don’t have anything to do with the car seat. They have cup holders and snack trays that attach to their strollers, as well as travel bags that allow you to pack up the strollers for cars or airplanes.
Being that BOB stated as a company that designed bike trailers, they still offer some of the best bike trailers on the market. Their YAK series bike trailers can tow up to 70 pounds and is compatible with most full-suspension bikes. They also have travel cases and a full-range of bike trailer accessories available on their website.
BOB makes great products that are designed in the USA. Their strollers, car seats, and accessories are great for families that either have the full line of products for seamless transition, or just want a quality car seat or stroller that stands up to the best in the market.
