I have three kids, but it wasn’t until I was pregnant with my last one that I finally got a good stroller. With the first two, I didn’t know there was really any difference between strollers. Even when I got muscle spasms in my back pushing a crappy stroller through Disneyland, it didn’t occur to me that it might be the stroller’s fault.
So anyway, once I finally got a good stroller (a Baby Jogger City Mini), a whole new world opened to me. Even though my BJCM was awesome, I was aware that it was really an entry-level good-stroller. The REAL joggers–the kind with actual air-filled tires and stuff–were out of my league. But when I got a chance to take a BOB Revolution CE for a spin (hahaha, get it?), I jumped at the opportunity.
The difference between the BOB Revolution CE and SE is the tire size. The SE has 16″ tires and is designed for serious use: rough terrain and lots of jogging. The CE, the one I used, has 12″ tires. It can also be used for jogging, but won’t handle off-roading as well. Since I’m not a jogger and spend way more time at the mall than on trails, the CE suited me just fine.
If you’re not sure which BOB Stroller is right for you, their website has a comparison chart of features which is very helpful.
Here are some measurements and specs of the Revolution CE:
Width (at wheels): 24.25″ (24″)
Length (wheel turned out): 43″ (37″)
Length (wheel turned in): 38″ (32.5″)
Seat height: 20.5″ (19.5″)
Seat depth: 8.5″ (9″)
Weight: 29 lbs
Maximum child size: 70 lbs and 44″
Minimum child age: Birth (with separate car seat adapter; for walking only), 8 weeks for walking mode without the car seat, 8 months for jogging mode
Much of the styling and features are similar to the Baby Jogger, but the BOB feels more heavy-duty. Some comparison photos:
