BOB Motion Travel System Review
One of the most common features that today’s parents have is a baby stroller. It provides an easy means of transport without you having to physically carry your baby everywhere you go.
There are so many different types of strollers out there that are designed to fulfill different needs of the parents such as double strollers for a mother with two little ones, jogging strollers for the fit mom, etc. But if you are looking for a stroller for your everyday use, then you definitely need to try the BOB Motion Travel System.
Just like the other BOB strollers, Motion has a full coverage large canopy inclusive of a large mesh viewing window at the top. As you know, any stroller with a canopy needs to have good ventilation. BOB Motion ensures that your child will not be stuffy and hot in the stroller.
The ventilation window allows free flow of air, which keeps the baby cool and comfortable during summer. The canopy can be adjusted as per the weather! You can adjust the canopy in different positions that offer the best protection for your little one.
Adjustable Handle Bar
The handle bar in this product can be adjusted from 32” all the way to 42” from ground up to handle. This is a plus especially for parents who are tall or short because they are able to raise or lower the handle bar to match their height for greater comfort.
BOB Motion ensures the parents are comfortable using the stroller just as the kids are in them.
Infinite Reclining Seats
The Motion Travel System provides reclining seats in multiple positions from vertical to almost horizontal. The parents are able to choose most comfortable position for the baby for when you are out or in case your baby needs to nap.
You can easily change the position of the seat and let your child sleep comfortably in the stroller. The seat can be reclined using one hand. Simply pull on the straps in the back of the seat. However, you will need both hands to bring the seat back up.
Swiveling Front Wheels
The swiveling front wheels give you ample maneuverability. This is just the perfect stroller for tight corners because it moves with such ease that you need not worry about having to attempt to take a turn multiple times.
The front wheels can also be locked. This helps when you are on rough terrain or need the stroller to only move straight. The lock system gives you control, better tracking, and better stability.
You can take this stroller over dirt, gravel, or uneven road surfaces.
The BOB Motion has a coil spring and Elastomer suspension that absorbs the shock allowing wheel travel up to 1.25 inches ensuring a smooth ride over bumpy roads. Your little one will not feel any of the bumps.
Comfort and Safety
This item has very comfortable padded seats that will easily accommodate a newborn and a child up to 76 lbs! The seat is very roomy at 14” wide and 23” from the back of the seat to the canopy.
The 5 point harness ensures your baby is well secured at all times. It is padded, adjustable, and easy to use. To unlock, simply push the button in the middle and pull the straps out.
