Weight

Good – 5/10

The BOB Revolution SE is not the lightest stroller out there. At 25 pounds, it is definitely on the heavier side when it comes to jogging strollers. As a result, it is fairly bulky and is hard for parents to lift and carry while on-the-go. However, the SE’s smaller size relative to other joggers and durable materials make up for its heavier weight. Its weight also does not affect how easy to push it is.

Brakes

Very Good – 8/10

The parking brake on the rear wheel of this stroller is foot-actuated. It’s heavy-duty and is very easy to use. This easily-accessible parking break will ensure that your stroller does not roll away from you with your child when it’s stationary!

Compact

Fair – 3/10

This stroller is not a very compact stroller compared to other candidates. When it Is folded, it becomes a smaller size but is still larger and bulkier than one would prefer. Many have reported this stroller to be quite bulky overall, making it hard to fit through doorways and store without having trouble. However, the Revolution SE has detachable wheels that make it significantly more compact when removed. This stroller should fit into most trunks.

“It is a smooth ride. I love the swivel wheel, it turns well. I bought this when my son was an infant and he is now a 3 year old toddler. He still loves riding in it. I now use it for my second newborn. After three years this stroller is still in amazing shape and works just as good as the day I bought it.”

It just arrived and I’m very pleased with the differences and updates to this stroller than our previous one we owned with our first child. Brake is very easy to use. It glides like a dream.
