Bottom line

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.

Safety

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 linked; they have to be engaged individually. It has a wrist strap and five-point, padded harnesses.

Ease of use

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. However, it may not fit through some doors due to its width. There is a learning curve on the fold, but owners say it's easy once you get the hang of it, and it locks when folded. Several users praise how easy it is to lock the front wheel from the handlebar lever.

Lifestyle features

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, but reviewers say the sound quality is poor. It has an adjustable handle. The canopy and basket are described as small.

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 upper weight rating on the Schwinn Turismo is 100, 50 maximum for one child. The seat is suitable for ages 6 months and up.
