The BOB Revolution 12-inch AW Duallie (*Est. $590) is a take off of the top rated BOB Revolution Duallie (*Est. $570). The stroller features the same lightweight and tough welded aluminum frame as its sister model, and the seats are nearly identical. The 12-inch AW Duallie differs, however, in its wheel size.
