FORT MILL, S.C., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BOB, the #1 jogging stroller brand, recently debuted the 2016 line of their most popular and versatile strollers, the Revolution PRO and Revolution FLEX, as well as their highly-anticipated BOB B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat by Britax. Now, active families everywhere can pair up the unmatched style of BOB jogging strollers with the performance of industry-leading SafeCell Impact Protection technologies built into all Britax car seats to create the perfect travel system.

Whether training for a marathon or cruising the local park, BOB Revolution strollers blend rugged performance with premium style. For both off- and on-road fitness and perfect for jogging or walking on all terrains, the refreshed Revolution PRO & Revolution FLEX stroller models share the following 2016 updates:

  • Increased weight capacity to 75lbs (single models only) for longer lifespan
  • Easy, one-hand recline for on-the-go adjustments
  • 25% larger Low Boy storage basket for added convenience during all types of strolls
  • Improved quick-release on front & back wheels for added safety and usability
  • More upright seating for the child's comfort

Both models still offer the versatility features that have helped position BOB as the #1 jogging stroller brand, including:

  • The swiveling-locking front wheel, which offers superior maneuverability and increased jogging stability
  • A 9-position adjustable handlebar for superior comfort at any parent's height
  • Easy, two-step fold and lightweight frame for convenient transport and storage
  • State-of-the-art, adjustable suspension system for an exceptionally smooth ride

The top-of-the-line Revolution PRO (MSRP: $559.99) is similar to the FLEX, but offers the advantage of a hand-activated rear drum brake for extra control when running or jogging downhill. With its unique styling in a black frame, the Revolution PRO is now available in Black and Meadow (a grassy green). The two additional fashions, Lagoon (a bright turquoise) and Canyon (vibrant orange), will become available in the spring.

The market-leading Revolution FLEX (MSRP: $499.99) is a favorite among parents looking for a stroller that can tackle urban treks as well as family-friendly hikes. The FLEX is now available in Black and Red and will become available in Lagoon and Canyon in the spring.

The two-child DUALLIE® version of the Revolution PRO (MSRP: $769.99) comes out in Black in early spring. The Revolution FLEX DUALLIE (MSRP: $709.99) will be available in Black and Red beginning in mid-March. Consumers can also purchase it in Lagoon or Canyon starting in late spring.

All BOB jogging strollers are suitable for walking with children starting at eight weeks or from birth as a travel system when paired with a BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter (sold separately) and matching BOB B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat. Because most children don't have the neck strength for jogging motion until 8 months and develop at different rates, BOB recommends that owners limit the use of their stroller to walking activities until the child is at least eight months and never run or jog when the stroller is in travel system mode. The BOB B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat by Britax (MSRP: $229.99) is now available in the Black, Lagoon, and Canyon fashions. All 2016 BOB products are sold at independent and mass retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The 2016 BOB Revolution PRO and FLEX strollers as well as the BOB B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat are all part of the full BOB line of strollers, car seats and accessories. For more information about BOB, visit bobgear.com, or find BOB on Twitter and Facebook.
