Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Single

Pros
  • Many convenience features
  • Easy to push, maneuver
  • Adjustable handlebar
Cons
  • Hard to fold
  • Heavy and bulky
  • Poor speaker quality

Bottom line

Plenty of owners say the Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Single works as well as higher-end, more expensive jogging strollers for their workout needs. It may not be the best for serious runners, but for the casual jogger, it's easy to use, includes a lot of convenience features and is car seat compatible. The big drawback is its 31-pound weight and bulky fold; it's hard to lift and won't fit in some car trunks.

Safety

Not the best safety features for jogging. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Single doesn't have quite as many safety features as higher-end strollers. It includes individual rear brakes and a wrist strap, but no handle brake for better control on hills. It has a five-point padded harness.

Ease of use

Hard to fold, easy to push. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Single gets great reviews for its ease of assembly, maneuverability and pushability. It also does well on a variety of terrains thanks to its knobby wheels. The fold as described as difficult; one reviewer said that even after having the stroller for a while, she was struggling with it. It's also heavy at 31 pounds, and a few reviewers who describe themselves as fit struggle to lift it. It locks when folded. There are a few complaints about quality issues with the front wheel.

Lifestyle features

A comfy beast. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel Wheel Jogger - Single 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. Owners pan the MP3 speaker for its poor sound quality. It has an adjustable handle for parents of different heights. The canopy and basket are described as small.

The stroller gets its best reviews for comfort for the rider. But it's big; one reviewer calls it "The Comfy Beast." Many owners say it won't fit in their sedans; others say it fits, but takes up all the trunk space. 

The upper weight rating on the Schwinn Turismo is 50 pounds, lower than other jogging strollers that can hold children up to 70 pounds or more. It is compatible with several car seats.

The Schwinn Turismo comes in sixth out of 10 strollers, with a rating of 60 out of 100. That may not sound great, but it's also being compared to some very high-end strollers that sell for twice as much. Mariana Seif notes that it's not appropriate for serious running.
