Durability

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Relay Click Connect Stroller is a durable stroller made out of high grade aluminum which is both lightweight and durable. The wheels are pneumatic which means that they contain compressed air and are built to withstand sharper edges, abrasions and long runs.

Weight

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Relay Click Connect  is quite light for a large jogging stroller. Weighing in at 28 lbs the aluminum build really does aid in the overall weight of the stroller. Keep in mind that this is the stroller’s weight without any items stored on it.

Brakes

Excellent – 9/10

The Graco Relay Click Connect has a single break on the bottom of the stroller that can lock both of the rear end wheels. The only reason this does not have a 10/10 in this category is because there is no hand brake. Which is needed when the user is going down hill in order to slow the stroller down without using their feet.

Compact

Good- 5/10

The Graco Relay Click Connect is quite compact for a jogging stroller. However when folded it is still large, the stroller measures at 25.75” x 25.25” x 31.75” when folded. So it can fit in most car trunks, but there won’t be much space for another other items in the back. Unfolded the stroller is 47 x 25 x 40 inches. 

“I’m a dad and I picked this up. It’s too bad that Graco picked to only sell these at a specific retailer at first, because it’s such a great jogger.
If they sold this at other retailers, it would definitely take a lot of BOB clientele. BUT NOW BEING ON AMAZON, it will finally get some attention! “

Ease of Use

Excellent – 9/10

The Graco Relay Click Connect is easy to use! It has a one hand fold which makes it convenient. All Graco Click Connect car seat are attachable to this stroller. The sun canopy can be collapsed and expanded easily. The safety bar can be removed and applied when needed. The harness is also easy to handle with a click of a button it comes off. There is also a strap that wraps around the user’s wrist for better grip!

Folding

Very Good – 8/10

The Graco Relay Click Connect folds with one hand, which makes it very convenient for the user! It does not get a 10/10 because it cannot stand up on its own when folded. It lays on the floor awkwardly due to the rear end wheels. 

Grip

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller does not have adjustable handlebar. However its handlebar is covered in foam which makes it a good sweat absorber.

Maneuverability

Excellent – 9/10

The Grace Relay Click Connect is an easy stroller to maneuver because of its full suspension and 360 swivel front wheel. The tires are also extremely durable and almost the equivalent of tires on a dirt bike. 

“We watch an adorable baby boy, and we needed a stroller that would perform well on the crushed-shell trails around our neighborhood. We are so pleased that we made this choice! He is 10 months old, and there is plenty of growing room. The large wheels easily handle the trails, and when we are on the sidewalk, this stroller is a dream! The seat/back is well-padded, the generous sun shade is great, and the little amenities pouch provides a place for a phone and a water bottle, with a zipper pocket for keys or other items needing a little more security.”

“We’ve been using this for a couple months now and my baby is 5 months. I would not use this as my main stroller as it is heavier than I’d like to take in and out of the car but it it a wonderful jogging stroller. It absorbs shock well and has a large shade for baby. “

Storage

Very Good – 8/10

The storage space on the Graco Relay Click Connect is quite spacious. The bottom container can hold up to 20 lbs which is quite a lot for any stroller, but this means that if fully loaded the stroller will be harder to push.

What do Experts Say?

“The Graco Relay Click Connect Performance Jogger is a single jogger stroller that did well during my two week period with the stroller. There are a few key selling points when it comes to this single jogging stroller, but the one that will most likely attract jogging parents is its price point. At this price point, Graco is certainly making jogging strollers more attractive to parents who are just starting out or are considering to jog with a stroller and hence want to “test it out” without spending too much money.” – Mommy Stroller

 

“My husband and I lead pretty active lives, so the decision to get a jogging stroller was an easy one to make. Which one to choose, however, took a little more research. We didn’t want to spend too much money but wanted a good quality stroller. After reading reviews and trying out floor models at the store, we were thrilled to be offered the opportunity to test the Graco Relay Click Connect Stroller. ” – Pnmag
