New BOB Revolution Strollers Ready for Family Adventures

BOB, the leading manufacturer of high-quality strollers for active families, welcomes two stroller additions – the Revolution PRO and the Revolution FLEX.

BOB refreshed the Revolution SE, a longtime favorite among BOB families, based on parent feedback and created two new models. Available as both Single and Duallie® (two seats) strollers, they include advanced features and a variety of fresh color options. The Revolution PRO and the Revolution FLEX support a wide range of activities, from all-terrain sport experiences to family walks or neighborhood jogs.

“Parents love that the BOB Revolution SE is the perfect combination of durability and maneuverability, allowing them to bring baby along on all their outdoor journeys,” said Claire Parrish, BOB Product Manager. “The new features offered by the PRO and FLEX will add comfort and ease to these family excursions, along with exciting new colors.”

Updated Features and Benefits
The Revolution PRO includes a new handlebar that adjusts to nine different positions to create the perfect fit for any parent’s height. In addition, the stroller is now equipped with hand-activated rear drum brakes for added control to conquer hills and inclines. The Revolution PRO is available in a new Wilderness (green), Black and Orange – all with silver frames.

The Revolution FLEX also offers the adjustable handlebar to accommodate every parent’s stature. The stroller’s expanded color options now include Black with black frame, Wilderness with black frame, Lagoon (aqua blue) with silver frame and Orange with silver frame.

Both models are designed with many of the popular Revolution SE features, including:

  • Swiveling front wheel, which offers superior maneuverability and locks forward for increased jogging stability
  • High-impact polymer composite wheels with pneumatic tires and tubes to take on tough terrain
  • Easy, two-step folding, lightweight frame for convenient transport and storage
  • State-of-the-art, adjustable suspension system for an exceptionally smooth ride
  • Five-point padded harness to keep children comfortably secure
  • Low-boy cargo basket, providing plenty of undercarriage storage

The Revolution PRO and the Revolution FLEX are suitable for children starting at eight weeks, or from birth with the use of the BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter and BOB B-Safe or other compatible infant car seats.

The BOB Revolution PRO Single ($499.99) and Duallie ($709.99) are now available exclusively at REI until June 15, 2014, and will then be available at select outdoor and bike retailers online and in stores starting in late June.

  1. Upgrade the Stroller
    Consistently chosen as parents’ top pick by magazines and reader’s choice awards, the BOB Revolution SE offers lightweight maneuverability; rugged durability; easy and convenient folding and storage; and state-of-the-art suspension and comfort features. With a swiveling front wheel, the stroller quickly converts to a jogger or off-road vehicle by flipping the front-wheel into the locked-forward position, while the knobby tires help parents cruise through slushy sleet.

  2. Add a Cozy Layer
    Like a favorite cashmere sweater, parents will delight in layering on the plush Warm Fuzzy. The Velcro-secured, insertible fleece panel with padded quilting buffers harsh, cold climates and is a mom’s must-have for the season. MRSP: $49
     
  3. Ward Off Wind and Rain
    Made with water-resistant, coated nylon, this easy-to-secure clear Weather Shield attaches over the stroller and opens a window to winter outings for wee ones, even in rainy and snowy conditions. Outfitted with vents for proper airflow, kids can comfortably witness the wintery outdoors without getting wet or wind-blown. MSRP: (Single) $55, (Duallie) $69
     
  4. Make Winter Travel a Snap
    Simplify holiday travel-with-tots with a BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter, designed to mate with the new BOB B-SAFE Infant Car Seat by BRITAX as well as other top-selling car seats from Britax, Chicco, Graco, and Peg Perego brands. Easy installation and removal allows parents to move sleeping babes from the car to the stroller with one simple click. The accessory also adds value and mileage to a BOB stroller by enabling parents to use the same stroller from infancy up to 70 pounds. MSRP: (Single) $55, (Duallie) $85
     
  5. Enable On-the-Go Snacking
    With the new Snack Tray, parents can easily convert their BOB strollers into mobile kiddie tables during long winter strolls. Easy to snap in and out of the Accessory Adaptor (on models of BOB strollers from 2011 and on), the Snack Tray features a handy finger-grooved plate and cup holder, perfect for keeping kids busy with gingerbread cookies and milk bottles.

BOB Boosts Compatibility & Convenience with New Infant Car Seat Adapters

BOB, manufacturer of strollers designed to help active parents navigate the often chaotic world of parenting, introduces several new Infant Car Seat Adapters to its line of accessories this summer and fall, offering expanded compatibility with top-selling infant car seats. The new products will allow parents with corresponding infant car seats to use fully-accessorized BOB strollers from their child’s infancy up to 70 pounds.

Beginning with the new Britax-compatible single Infant Car Seat Adapter accessory (available July 2012), BOB strollers will mate with Britax brand infant car seats that feature the Click & Go system. The single, Britax-compatible adapter joins BOB’s pre-existing line of single Infant Car Seat Adapters, compatible with top-selling car seat models from Chicco, Graco, and Peg Perego brands.

In September 2012, BOB will also introduce new Duallie Infant Car Seat Adapters, for use with BOB Duallie (two-seater) strollers. The Duallie adapters will be compatible with Britax, Chicco and Peg Perego infant car seats. These Duallie adapters join the previously available Graco Duallie adapter. All Duallie adapters include a Snack Tray for one seat of the Duallie stroller, for use by older children.

Designed for convenient, quick installation and removal, the single and Duallie Infant Car Seat Adapters slide into the built-in Accessory Adapter in the BOB stroller and audibly “click” into place. Then, parents can install the infant car seat into the Infant Car Seat Adapter (similar to installing it into its base in the car). The Infant Car Seat Adapter is designed for walking only, due to the higher center of gravity.

Accommodating a growing baby, the accessory is easily removed again so that an older child can ride directly in the stroller seat.

“As a new member of the Britax family, BOB is thrilled to unveil its newest Britax-compatible Infant Car Seat Adapters, as well as our expanded line of Duallie adapters compatible with Chicco and Peg Perego,” said BOB Marketing Manager Nicole Brown. “Aside from underscoring our common bonds with Britax, the new products strengthen BOB’s lineup of convenient, ‘transitional’ stroller accessories that enable parents to use their stroller from their child’s infancy and beyond. These products increase BOB strollers’ versatility and longevity, thus offering the consumer more value.”

The BOB Infant Car Seat Adapter (MSRP: single $55, Duallie $85) is sold separately. Look for BOB strollers and accessories in baby stores and sporting goods stores nationwide.

BOB Stroller-Runner Mom Races for Guinness Record in Chilliwack Mother’s Day 8K

BOB, a leading manufacturer of strollers and stroller accessories that allow active parents to take their little ones anywhere life moves them, has partnered with Vancouver competitive runner and coach Allison Tai in her effort to set the Guinness World Record for running with a stroller in various distances. Her first race in this effort is the Chilliwack Mother's Day 8k, on May 13, 2012.

Tai aims to set the record for women running with strollers in the 5K, 8K, 10K, 10 mile, half-mile and marathon distances, using her BOB Ironman stroller.

Tai, who worked her way back from a severe injury after being hit on her bike by a truck in 2006, competes regularly in races of various distances and is a certified Canfitpro PRO TRAINER for the Group Fitness Specialist program and Pre and Post Natal Fitness Instructor Specialist program.

Tai says she looks forward to the challenge as well as the opportunity to show moms everywhere the value of training and racing with their babies.

Below, Allison Tai shares five tips for new mothers setting out to achieve their running goals, with baby in tow.

Allison Tai’s 5 Tips for Stroller-Running

  1. Baby Comes First
    Your baby is still your first priority and that's okay. Give yourself permission to be a mom first, even if it means walking home and calling it a day. I use the BOB Snack Tray accessory to provide my little one some space for a toy or snacks to entertain her as we run. I also I keep a hip sling in the back pocket of my BOB Ironman so that, should today not be the day for running, I don't give myself an arm cramp carrying her home.
     
  2. Comfort Comes Second
    I have the BOB Warm Fuzzy pad under my baby, a nice fluffy blanket, and (since it rains often where I live) often the BOB Weather Shield over the stroller. Be sure to check your baby’s hands, toes and the nape of the neck often to make sure they are warm or cool enough, and keep an eye on the large viewing window of the stroller canopy. Keep in mind that conditions can change in a snap; I always carry my BOB Weather Shield, BOB Solar Shield, baby SPF lotion and an extra blanket just in case.
     
  3. Take Baby Steps
    If you are just getting back into running, start gradually. If you do too much, too soon, you are setting yourself up for injury or burn-out. Little steps make a big impact.
    1. Start with one minute of walking and two minutes of jogging at a pace that is not much faster than a walk.
    2. Work your way into jogging further by adding on no more than ten percent each week in terms of distance or time. For example: two minutes of jogging week one; 2:15 minutes in week two; and so on, always with a one minute easy walk/rest in between. Approximately 20-30 minutes total should do at first.
    3. Once you make it to ten minutes of jogging with one minute of walking you can increase the time with the same gradual ten percent increments to 40-60 minutes total time.
    4. Don't forget to do some easy walking beforehand and afterwards for your warm-up and cool-down.
       
  4. Gear Up
    Running with your baby is a lot less expensive than taking classes or hiring a sitter, so give yourself permission to buy good equipment. I have raced with and had great outcomes against non-stroller-pushers using my BOB Ironman stroller. It's amazing what a difference a light, agile jogging stroller can make!

    Good shoes will also go a long way in keeping you injury-free and working toward your goals. Be sure to purchase blinking lights and a headlamp that can be secured to your stroller handlebar, in case you are out after dark.
     
  5. Have Fun
    The absolute most important thing is that you have fun! It's great for both you and your baby to get outside for some fresh air and movement. You will probably end up with a happier baby and you will almost certainly end up being a happier mom!

BOB Offers 5 Freedom-Giving Gifts for the New Mom this Mother’s Day

There is nothing more in demand, and less in supply, than freedom for a new mother. Free up her time, hands, exercise regimen and more with BOB strollers and accessories this Mother’s Day, offering moms the freedom to:

1. Explore Paths Less-Traveled
Break free from urban sprawl or suburban predictability with BOB’s innovative, off-road strollers that allow moms to take their little ones anywhere their lifestyles move them. Walk through the woods with the BOB Revolution SE’s high-impact polymer composite wheels (the swiveling front wheel can be locked forward for stability on bumpy roads) and state-of-the-art suspension, allowing baby a cushy ride. Or, hit the sandy beach and let the peaceful sound of waves rock baby to sleep, as mom soaks up the restorative sights, sounds and smells.

2. Let Go of Burdens
When heavy purses, diaper bags, lunch bags and other on-the-go packs are weighing her down, BOB storage features help to lift the burden. Accessories like the Handlebar Console and Snack Tray, and the built-in storage pockets and Lowboy Cargo Basket in BOB strollers allow moms the freedom to pack away essentials like cell phones, snacks, diapers, toys, and keys—leaving the hands free to simply grab the handlebar and push off on an unfettered adventure.

3. Find “Me” Time
For moms, it can seem like there are not enough hours in the day to fit in fitness. Give her a break with the BOB Stroller Strides® Stroller,*a high-performance model that allows her to cross-train with her tiny passenger in tow. Featuring a Stroller Strides Fitness Kit, complete with a Handlebar Console, exercise tubing and a Stroller Strides exercise manual to help guide her workout, this stroller helps turn baby’s daily outing into a bona fide workout.

4. Turn Left or Right
It’s easy to feel locked in as a new mom. But the BOB Revolution SE stroller features a versatile front wheel that can swivel to offer superior maneuverability or be locked forward for increased stability while jogging or training on tough terrain. Moms choose the mode and make the switch with one easy click.

5. Feel Mobile at Every Stage
Accommodating both infants and toddlers, fully-accessorized BOB strollers can support children from infancy up to 70 pounds with adjustable suspension ensuring comfort at every stage. Moms seeking a breath of fresh air can stroll with a newborn using the Infant Car Seat Adapter accessory, which easily “clicks” into the no-fuss Accessory Adapter (built into 2011 BOB strollers). As baby grows, they can remove the accessory and replace it with the Snack Tray to hold a toddler’s toys and snacks as he rides in the “Big Kid” seat.

BOB Unleashes New, Easy-to-Use Infant-to-Toddler Accessories

BOB strollers announces full availability this February of their highly anticipated transitional stroller accessories, designed to make it easier and more convenient for active parents to navigate the often chaotic world of parenting.

Accommodating infants and toddlers, city strolls and off-road jogs, the fully-accessorized BOB models do the work of multiple strollers, supporting children from infancy up to 70 pounds on any outdoor family adventure.

Built to Adapt
Convenient accessories such as the Infant Car Seat Adapter (available now) and Snack Tray (available February 2012) easily “click” into the no-fuss Accessory Adapter (built into 2011 single and Duallie BOB strollers), making switching the stroller from infant to toddler mode, and back again, a snap.

Infants’ Mobile App
Babies under eight weeks old can ride in style in any BOB stroller with the use of the Infant Car Seat Adapter. The accessory slides into the Accessory Adapter and will audibly “click” into place. Then, parents can install the infant car seat similar to how you would install it into its base in the car. As baby outgrows the car seat, simply push the release buttons to remove the adapter and allow him to ride in the “big-kid” seat.

BOB stroller Infant Car Seat Adapters are compatible with top-selling infant car seats; find a list at www.BOBgear.com/carseatadapter.

Snack ‘n’ Stroll
Toddlers love to multi-task. Keep them busy and satisfied on long strolls with the Snack Tray accessory, built to hold toys and treats. Place favorite snacks in the handy finger-grooved plate and their bottle or sippy cup in the cup holder. When snack time is over, easily remove the Snack Tray to hand-wash it or to swap it out with the Infant Car Seat Adapter when it’s the newborn’s turn to stroll.

The BOB single Infant Car Seat Adapter (MSRP: Single, $55; Duallie, $85) and Snack Tray (MSRP: Single, $30; Duallie, $50) accessories are sold separately. Look for BOB strollers and accessories in baby stores and sporting goods stores nationwide.

Double Strolling Pleasure with BOB Duallie Two-Seat Strollers

When the second baby comes along, the joys of parenting are doubled—and so are stroller needs.

BOB, a leading manufacturer of strollers and stroller accessories that allow active parents to take their little ones anywhere life moves them, designed the enhanced 2011 line of Duallie two-seater strollers (available in the Revolution SE, Ironman, Stroller Strides, and Sport Utility Stroller models) with the unique challenges of parents-of-two young children in mind. From the sleek, fit-in-the-doorway design (overall width of 30.5 in.) and lightweight construction (34 - 36 lb.) to the extra storage pockets, transitional infant-to-toddler accessories, and state of the art suspension and tracking, BOB Duallie strollers help parents step gracefully and effortlessly into the often chaotic world of double-duty parenting.

Smooth Steering
Ever feel like your double stroller and wide-load semis have a little too much in common? Travel and turn with ease in BOB Duallie strollers. The swiveling front wheel (on Duallie Revolution SE and Stroller Strides models) allows for superior maneuverability and strain-free steering.

Packing and Portability
Babies’ toys, snacks, blankies, and diapers: check. Mom’s keys, water bottle and cell phone: check. Two tots: check. The BOB Duallie stroller can handle the storage demands of a family on the go. Outfitted with two interior seat pockets in each seat, one large pocket on each seat-back, and a large Low-Boy Cargo Basket underneath, there is room for the whole kit and caboodle. Just add the Duallie Handlebar Console accessory for handy storage of the parents’ essentials, and the Snack Tray for kids’ easy access to favorite snacks and toys.

When the stroll is over, parents can pack up with ease due to a lightweight, easy-to-carry frame; quick, two-step fold; and the wrist strap buckle, which secures the stroller in the folded position for hassle-free stowing.

Versatility and Value
A baby may grow out of those adorable designer socks, or break that action figure toy, in one week—but the BOB stroller is built to last, and grows as the family grows. Accommodating both infants and toddlers, city strolls as well as off-road jogs, the fully-accessorized BOB Duallies do the work of multiple strollers and can support children from infancy* up to 100 pounds** with adjustable suspension. Combined with the durable construction, these versatile features make the BOB Duallie the only stroller parents-of-two will need.

Infant-to-Toddler
Stroll with newborn and toddler side-by-side using the Duallie Infant Car Seat Adapter.

BOB Stroller Accessories & Comfort Features Create Smooth, All-Season Ride

The harsh weather and uneven roads and pathways outside can seem daunting to new parents embarking on their first stroll. But climate-control and the comforts of home don’t end at the nursery door, thanks to the help of BOB strollers.

A leading manufacturer of strollers that allow active families to take little ones wherever life moves them, BOB designed its 2011 line of strollers and accessories to provide a secure buffer against the elements, so that new parents can stroll with confidence that baby is comfortable and happy. From built-in features to convenient accessories that enable all-weather strolling, BOB strollers help keep baby shielded from rain, wind and sun.

Sniffles & Shivers
When rain and cold winter temperatures threaten to put the kibosh on healthy outdoor exercise, BOB’s winter weather accessories offer comfort and protection to help babies get their fresh air in comfort. The transparent Weather Shield blocks out rain and wind from head-to-toe, while the Warm Fuzzy seat liner helps keep baby warm and cozy on cold-weather walks.

Squinting & Sunburn
With babies’ sensitivities to sun and heat, a peaceful walk in the sun can soon turn into a tiresome outing. To manage baby’s sun exposure, the multi-position canopy adjusts for protection against the elements at any time of day. The BOB Sun Shield accessory (which has mesh fabric to block harmful ultraviolet rays) takes the sun block to another level, while also safeguarding against pesky bugs.

Ouchies & Grouchies
There’s nothing like a screaming, crying, uncomfortable baby to put a damper on new moms’ stroller fitness routines. BOB builds its strollers to absorb shock and provide the ultimate seat comfort in order to help 2011 allows three inches of wheel travel for smooth strolling on the roughest of roads. The padded five-point harness keeps baby securely fastened in, without cramping his style. And a sophisticated seat featuring heat-press technology allows superior comfort, while the reclining seatback enables babies to kick back and nap in comfort.

BRITAX ACQUIRES B.O.B. Trailers, Inc.

Two of the top brands in the juvenile products category are coming together under the BRITAX umbrella. BRITAX, the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s car safety seats and strollers, today announced the acquisition of BOB, a leading, innovative, high-quality maker of jogging strollers.

BRITAX successfully expanded into the stroller market by launching its B-Series of strollers in recent years (B-READY, B-SMART, B-MOBILE and B-SCENE).  The company complemented its stroller offering earlier this year when it introduced its innovative, quick-folding B-AGILE stroller.  Customers value the strollers’ versatility, light weight and easy-use characteristics.  BRITAX car seats and strollers are sold globally in all major retailers and specialty stores.

BOB, which began in 1994 as a manufacturer of bicycle trailers, is widely considered America’s premier provider of innovative, design oriented high quality “sport utility,” or jogging strollers. BOB’s line of successful products includes the BOB Revolution SE and CE, as well as BOB Ironman®, BOB Sport Utility Stroller and the BOB Stroller Strides®*Fitness Stroller.   Based in Boise, Idaho, the company now makes a full line of multi-functional strollers and accessories that is sold at retailers and specialty stores across the U.S. and Canada. Its strollers are compatible with popular infant car seats on the market today.

“Families want products that fit their lifestyles,” said Karl Kahofer, CEO of BRITAX Child Safety, “and BRITAX is committed to developing products and technologies that provide safe mobility and comfort for children around the world.  This commitment is reflected in the design and engineering of all our products — especially our B-Series strollers and accessories.

“We’ve admired for some time BOB’s ingenuity and commitment to customers and are convinced that its products, customer service, and business ethics make it a natural fit for BRITAX.   This purchase reinforces BRITAX global leadership in child safety and mobility, and is fully in line with our international growth strategy.  We have no plans to change the BOB name; in fact we are excited to expand the BOB product range globally.”

BOB cofounder and CEO, Roger Malinowski, is equally enthusiastic about the acquisition.  “When we started this company more than fifteen years ago,” he said, “we simply wanted to design and manufacture the world’s best single-wheel bike trailers, and later, the world’s best strollers for active, sports-minded parents.  When you look at the thoughtful engineering behind the BRITAX stroller line and the revolutionary design behind its car seats, you can see why our two companies will fit well together.”

The parties have agreed to not disclose the purchase price.
