FORT MILL, S.C. – September 19, 2018: BOB Gear, a leading manufacturer of high-quality jogging strollers and accessories for active families, introduces the BOB® Blaze™ Performance Stroller, its latest fixed-wheel design with unmatched stability. Now available at REI Co-op, exclusively through 2018, the Blaze™ is the ultimate training partner and features an ergonomic design for long distance runs; 16” semi-slick, air-filled tires built for speed; a hand-activated front caliper brake for downhill control; and extra secure storage can be found in the zip-top cargo basket and the included handlebar console.
“Empowering parents to share their active lifestyles with their children is extremely important to us,” said Kaitlin Bissett, BOB Gear Product Manager. “Whether training for a race or following their passion for running, parents will love how the BOB® Blaze™ Performance Stroller gives them the tools needed to hit new personal records and experience the outdoors with their little ones riding safely and comfortably in tow.”
The BOB® Blaze™ Performance Stroller (US MSRP: $499.99), available exclusively at REI, is currently available in Citron (black with bright yellow-green accents). The Blaze™ offers mountain bike style suspension with up to three inches of compression travel, giving little ones an ultra-smooth ride. An adjustable handlebar helps ensure the perfect fit for parents of all heights; and fully upright seating lets kids take in the world on each adventure. The Blaze™ also features a UPF 50+ canopy to protect against harmful sun rays and includes a unique peek & chat window so parents can check on and chat with their child along the way.
An easy 2-step fold allows for convenient storing and transportation options, and the Blaze™ can also be paired with additional accessories including a snack tray (US MSRP: $29.99), travel bag (US MSRP $89.99), sun shield for fixed wheel strollers (US MSRP $49.99), and weather shield for fixed wheel strollers (US MSRP $49.99).
