Durability

Very Good- 9/10

You get what you pay for with the Revolution Flex Duallie. The premium build on this stroller will last you well after your little ones grow old enough to walk on their own.

Weight

Good – 7/10

Considering the larger build of double jogger strollers, the Duallie is surprisingly light. It will still be somewhat difficult to manage especially when folded.

Brakes

Excellent – 7/10

The only brakes on this stroller is a foot operated brake placed on a bar along the back of the stroller. The foot pedal brake is highly effective which will ensure the safety of your little ones.

Compact

Good – 6/10

This double stroller’s folded dimensions are 45″ x 30.5″ x 17.5″. This is considerably large when folded. The stroller is comparably short but overall more bulky and takes up considerable space. This is somewhat to be expected for higher end double strollers.

” the canopies are some of the best I’ve seen on any stroller, especially a jogger — sturdy, pull very far forward, windows, smooth movement when opening/closing (in contrast to the Bob canopies, which feel cheap sadly)”

Ease of Use

Excellent – 9/10

 Most everything about this stroller is easy to use. Most features of this stroller are intentionally built to be simple and intuitive.

Folding

Very Good – 7/10

The folding on this stroller can be done in 2 steps. Unfortunately, the stroller does not stand when folded. The fold itself is easy but the stroller is a little awkward to handle once folded.

Grip

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller has a single, foam padded handlebar that is adjustable. There are 9 positions with different heights that you can choose by pressing on the 2 push buttons on the sides of the handlebar.

Maneuverability

Excellent – 9/10

The large wheels and adjustable handlebar give this stroller great maneuverability. The front wheel does have a locked and swivel mode depending on whether you are walking or jogging. When in swivel mode, the front wheel can turn on a dime.

A little expensive, but you get what you pay for. Suspension is great, and really like the front wheel lock feature.

Rough Terrain

Very Good- 7/10

This stroller does perform well on tougher surfaces due to its sturdy build, great suspension, and large tires. However, a number of users report that it can be easy for the air-filled tires to go flat especially when on harsher grounds.

Accessories

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller does come with a number of handy accessories and features that are hard to find on other strollers. You will appreciate things like the adjustable handlebar, individual adjustable reclining seats, 5 point harness, and a safety wrist strap. What is specifically unique is the adjustable suspension system on the stroller that can be changed depending on the load your stroller is carrying. What you wont find on the stroller and will have to buy separately is a handlebar console, snack tray, and car seat adapter.

Easy to Assemble

Very Good – 7/10

Assembly, like for many other Baby Joggers, is simple and painless for the Duallie. No tools are required and the total time should be fairly quick. Just be careful when taking the stroller out of the box. It can be a little heavy.

Easy to Clean

Excellent- 9/10

The fabric on this stroller is spill resistant and so wont need to be cleaned much. when it does, simple cloth and water directly to the spot will do the trick.

“We’ve been using our single for 4 years and it still looks and works great. We bought a used double to save money and realized that the Baby Jogger brand is worth the investment after the used one started falling apart. Very happy with it and I love how easy it is to fold up. My 4 year old and 2 year old are comfy in it for our daily jogs.”

Storage

Excellent – 8/10

The storage on this stroller is ample but diverse. The undercarriage storage basket is large enough to hold a diaper bag but nothing much larger. Behind both seats are medium sized mesh pockets that can hold somewhat smaller belongings. These can be hard to access when the seats are in full recline position. There are also inside seat stow pockets.

Child Comfort

Very Good – 8/10

With all the premium features this stroller has to offer, your child will sure to be comfortable. Each seat can recline to multiple positions individually, there is a top-notch adjustable suspension system, and plenty of leg space.

Sun Canopy

Very Good – 8/10

The sun canopy on this stroller is split into two halves for each seat. They extend far enough to the knees of most passengers. They are also water resistant as they are made of the same material as the seats of the stroller and both have peak-a-boo windows.

Suspension

Excellent- 10/10

The suspension system you will find on this stroller may very well be the best in the business. The suspension system is on all 3 wheels and is adjustable to cater to how heavy the load on your stroller is. There is a maximum of 2 inches of coil spring and shock absorption. Many users jokingly brag that the suspension system on this stroller is better then the suspension of their car.


What do experts say?

“The BOB Revolution Flex Duallie has just about every feature parents or passengers might need, without frivolous nods to superfluous accessories. The Flex is easy to maneuver, made with quality materials, easy to use, with ample storage, and impressive performance in most test areas. This stroller will win your heart, mind, feet, hands, and just about every other part of you, which is why we gave it Top Pick for All-Terrain strolling.”- Baby gear Lab

” I really like this stroller given that BOB has done an excellent job in its design, incorporating some really great features that are not only nice to have, but are also adjustable. An example of this would be the ability for parents to adjust the amount of suspension support provided.”Mommy Stroller
