BOB Motion Stroller Review

– the complete BOB Motion stroller review!

YSG Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (4.6 / 5)

The first thing to note is that the Bob Motion stroller was discontinued in 2016. I’d also suggest you look into the more recent Bob strollers – Revolution Flex or the Rambler. These are more up-to-date jogging strollers in terms of features and design. 

Check them both out at Amazon: Revolution Flex, Rambler

On the other hand, if you’re considering buying the BOB Motion stroller as a second hand (as they are currently no longer available in most stores) here is a full review for you!

The BOB Motion stroller is an all terrain stroller that handles different terrains: grassy, gravel or sandy terrain. It can be used as an everyday stroller but also for jogging on the sidewalks, in the park, and multiple terrains. The BOB Motion is quite compact which makes it great as an everyday stroller. Weighing around 23.1 lbs, the stroller is able to carry up to 65 lbs! This makes it great for big/older toddlers. It is car seat compatible, which makes it great for newborns (by purchasing a car seat, you can carry your newborn aboard the stroller and switch to the stroller seat once your baby is older). 

In addition, the stroller has a one-hand quick-fold feature that lets you fold the stroller with just a single hand motion. This folds the stroller into the small dimensions of 21.9″W x 10.1″H x 26.3″L. The fold is super compact, you can easily carry it in a bag or in the trunk of a small car.  The stroller also has an adjustable handlebar making it ideal for taller or shorter parents. You can easily adjust the handlebar to a comfortable height for you.

The BOB Motion stroller was one of the best strollers during its time back in 2016. But surprisingly, it can still compete with ones of the current top strollers a few years later. 

Read below for the full list of features!
