The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Double gets rave reviews from owners for its easy push, many convenience features and comfort for children. Many reviewers say it works as well as higher-end, more expensive double joggers. The big drawback is its weight and size -- at 34 pounds, it's heavy and hard to lift. It also has a bulky fold and, according to some parents, only folds flat with the wheels removed.
Not the best safety features for jogging on hills. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Double lacks a hand brake, the one thing that reviewers say they would like. The brakes are reported as sturdy, but they are not liked; they have to be engaged individually. It has a wrist strap and five-point padded harnesses.
Hard to fold, easy to push. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Double gets great reviews for its ease of assembly, maneuverability and its push -- in spite of its 34 pound weight. There is a learning curve on the fold, but owners say it's easy once you get the hang of it. It locks when folded. There are a few complaints about quality issues with the front wheel, but later reviews indicate that problem may be user error -- trying to lock the wheel while in motion. It's necessary to stop before locking the wheel. Several users praise how easy it is to lock the front wheel from the handlebar lever.
Big, may not fit through doors. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Double is loaded with features, including a parent tray with two cup holders, a child tray with two cup holders and a speaker for an MP3 player. Reviewers say the MP3 speaker's sound quality is poor. The jogger has an adjustable handle, for parents of different heights. The canopy and basket are described as small, and there is a bar between the two sides of the basket, making it a smaller space.
The stroller gets its best reviews for comfort for the rider, with parents saying it's very well-padded and the spring suspension makes for a smooth ride. The big drawback to this stroller, experts and owners agree, is its size. It's heavy and won't fit in some trunks, and it's wide -- it may not fit through some doorways. The wheels come off to make a smaller footprint, but this stroller is probably not the best choice for a suburban parent who has to lift it in and out a lot. Several reviewers say it won't fold flat unless you remove the wheels. It is not car seat compatible.
The upper weight rating on the Schwinn Turismo is 100, 50 maximum for one child. The seat is suitable for ages 6 months and up, but a baby must have full head control before a parent can start jogging. Some children may be older than 6 months when they get that control. The Schwinn Turismo also comes in a single stroller (*Est. $200).
Better than average warranty. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Double has a five-year warranty. Although it's called the Schwinn Turismo, it's also distributed by InStep, and that website is where the specs can be found.
