Frequently Asked Questions

The Summit X3 stroller/jogger hybrid and F.I.T. jogger are our current jogging strollers and are intended to be used for jogging, running or exercise. The City Series and the Vue are urban and all-terrain strollers that provide optimum versatility for everyday use, they are not intended for jogging or running and should not be used for these activities.

Our strollers and joggers can be used for children in an upright position from approximately six months to five-years-old. We do not recommend placing your baby in the upright seat of the stroller or jogger until they are able to sit and hold their head up without assistance.

You can easily turn your stroller into a travel system with one of our car seat adapters or bassinets. We have car seat adapters available for both our single and double strollers. The Compact Pram is designed to fit on our single strollers that feature the accessory mounting bracket and a full recline or a 2011 and newer City Mini® Double, City Mini® GT Double and Summit X3 Double while the Deluxe Pram is compatible with most of our single strollers. The Vue offers a Soft Pram accessory that will work in the fully reclined seat of the stroller. (Please note our Car Seat Adapters have a maximum weight capacity of 45 lbs - that's the combined weight of the car seat and the newborn, and our bassinets will hold children up to 25 lbs.)

The Vue, City Mini®, City Mini® ZIP, City Mini® GT, City Lite, City Elite, Summit and F.I.T. have an increased recline angle to a near flat position to accommodate newborns. That means you can safely lay a baby in the fully reclined seat of these strollers without the use of a car seat adaptor or bassinet. While using a Summit or F.I.T., never run or jog with your seat fully reclined. Also, please keep in mind that babies should have ample neck support when placed in the reclined seat of a stroller - you can use any number of neck supports sold at baby stores.

We recommend that you speak with your pediatrician before starting this activity. Every baby is different, but typically a doctor will recommend that a baby be 6 months old before you jog on smooth pavement, and 12 months old before jogging on trails, grass, gravel or uneven terrain.

We have developed a patented car seat adapter for our side-by-side City Mini® and City Mini® GT stroller. This accessory solves the tipping issue often associated with this type accessory - making it the safest on the market. By placing our adapter on a locking slide, an infant and a toddler can ride together by securing the car seat adapter over one seat. If the toddler gets out, simply slide and lock the car seat adapter in the center of the stroller to provide an equal weight distribution over the seats. The Double Car Seat Adapter holds one car seat, and only one adapter can be used on the side-by-side double stroller at a time.

To understand which car seats models are compatible with which Baby Jogger strollers, please look for your stroller name below. A list of the compatible car seat options is provided along with the item number of the Baby Jogger Car Seat Adapter you will need.

An EVA wheel is a lightweight molded plastic wheel that is ideal for pavement or smooth urban terrain. This wheel is available on our Vue, City Mini®, City Mini® ZIP, City Lite and City Versa, which helps to make these strollers lightweight, agile and compact when folded.

A Forever-Air tire is a rubber tire inflated with a lightweight foam instead of air. This ensures the tire will not go flat with frequent use or rough terrain. The City Mini® GT, City Elite and City Select both feature Forever-Air tires.

A pneumatic tire is an inflatable rubber tire that provides a comfortable, smooth ride on many different terrains. The Summit and F.I.T. have pneumatic tires, which add to their all-terrain capabilities.

We've devised the following guidelines so you can choose the right wheel size for your needs:

5.5" - 8.5" Wheels - Ideal for indoor strolls, walking on pavement or smooth urban terrain. These smaller lightweight wheels are perfect for city dwellers who need a compact stroller for every day use. Please view our Vue, City Mini®, City Mini® ZIP, City Mini GT, City Lite or City Versa strollers for this wheel size.

12" Wheel - Perfect for walking on grass, trails, sidewalks or in stores. Wonderful for city life where smaller wheels offer a more compact, maneuverable stroller. You will fall in love with the 12" stroller wheels if you have previously owned a conventional stroller. Please view our City Elite, City Select or Summit models for this wheel size.

16" Wheel - Great for walking or jogging and is still very easy to store and transport. It's large enough to handle snow and sand yet still small enough to fit into tight spaces. Please view our Summit and F.I.T. models for this wheel size.

The City Mini®, City Mini® GT, City Mini® ZIP, City Lite, City Elite, Summit and F.I.T. all have a seat that reclines to a near flat position. Please note that the Summit and F.I.T.'s recline are for cruising purposes only. Please do not run or jog with the seat fully reclined.

Baby Jogger offers a convenient accessory called the Glider Board. The Glider Board attaches to the rear axle of many of our single or double strollers and provides an area for an older child to ride along. It is not compatible with the Vue, City Mini® ZIP, City Lite or Summit strollers and should not be used on the F.I.T. while jogging. Buggy Boards made by other manufacturers are not recommended for use with Baby Jogger strollers.

Yes, the seat and canopies of our strollers and joggers are made from strong, lightweight, washable fabrics which easily detach from the frame. The seat should be washed in cold water on the delicate cycle of your washing machine and attached back onto the stroller to dry.

Baby Jogger recommends inflating your tires to 20 PSI. Your tire rim may say a maximum of 40 PSI, but please only inflate to 20 PSI. You can use a standard bicycle pump to inflate your tires.

Yes! Safety comes first at The Baby Jogger Company. We test and retest our products to ensure that all our current strollers either meet or exceed ASTM and/or EN 1888 testing standards for strollers and carriages. Remember, we are the original Baby Jogger Company and that means we have over 25 years of experience caring for your precious cargo.

Yes! Except where noted, our frames are backed by a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. The parts of your stroller, excluding tires and tubes, are warranted to be free of manufacture defects for a period of 1 year under normal use and in compliance with the operating instructions. When calling in a warranty claim, please have your item number, serial number, manufacturer date stamp and proof of purchase on hand to expedite the process.
