I was provided with a Joovy Jogging Stroller (the Zoom360 Ultralight) at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
Before I was a parent, I thought families only needed one stroller. Turns out, I was wrong. With our first baby, we managed with just one stroller but when number two came, we needed a double. Then when we went on vacation, we needed a cheapie double that wouldn’t matter if the airline broke it. And as time went on, we found that different strollers do, in fact, make life much easier. A jogging stroller is one of my baby gear must haves and Joovy has a great one!
This Joovy Jogging Stroller (the Zoom360 Ultralight) is packed with awesome features that have quickly made it a favorite in our home.

- Swivel Front Wheel That Can Lock
- Large Tires
- Off Road Suspension
- Auto Lock When Folded
- Huge Canopy With Peek-A-Boo Window
- Linked Brake For One Step Lock

For starters, there’s always the dreaded assembly, right? When I finished un-boxing and saw the minimal parts, I realized that Joovy really hit it out of the park with this one. The assembly only consists of popping the tires on and clipping the parent tray on. It literally took two minutes and we were ready to go!
Our youngest child is currently 2 1/2 so she’s the main stroller rider, unless we have foster kiddos. However, Sam, our recently turned 5 year old son gets tired some times too. So the spacious seat of the Joovy Jogging Stroller is an awesome feature for the bigger riders. And since it can accommodate kids up to 75 pounds, our son will have no issues fitting.
The straps are adjustable to get a tight fit for a variety of ages and the buckle is easy for me to undo one-handed.
Small sunshades are one of my biggest beefs when choosing a stroller, so I’m thrilled to share that this sunshade is HUGE!
The peek-a-boo window on the sunshade is huge on the Joovy Jogging Stroller. This makes it easy to check on Lucy when we’re out and about.
The back wheel brakes are connected by a bar which means that locking one wheel automatically locks them both!
Featuring a strap adjustable seat recline, this design allows me to choose a variety of recline angles.
There are several storage options built into the design of this stroller including: underneath basket, deep parent cup holders, zippered pocket on the parent console, mesh pocket on the back of the seat, and two side mesh pockets on the inside of the child’s seat.
A big reason we were on the hunt for a jogging stroller is because we live in the country. While I wouldn’t give up our farm life, it comes with some rougher terrain that the typical stroller can’t handle. Thankfully, this Joovy Jogging Stroller has taken it with stride!
Joovy Jogging Stroller Final Thoughts:
While sold separately, Joovy does offer click-in carseat adapters that transform this stroller into a travel system which is nice. They also sell a rain cover if that is an important accessory for your family.
Overall, our family is super impressed with this jogging stroller. I am able to tackle our dirt roads, hills, and country life easily now.
Joovy has really put a lot of thought into their design and there are only a couple of things I’d love to see changed. First off, I’d love for the basket underneath be a little bigger and have a zippered top. I love the security an enclosed basket gives me so I can put my purse down there. And secondly, I’m a shorty so an adjustable handle bar would be awesome. I really don’t notice it too much but I know if it was an option, I’d have it a little lower for me. Neither of these preferences are deal breakers, though, as this Joovy Jogging Stroller (Zoom360 Ultralight) is one of the best I’ve seen.
