Parents cannot take these strollers out for a jogging if the new baby is onboard. The below are the age instructions for using the strollers:

  • 0 to 8 weeks – you have to walk with car seat adaptor and the stroller does not come with a sufficient recline for new born
  • 8 weeks to 8 months – Car adaptor is not required to walk
  • 8 months to 5 years – You can go off road either to walk or jog

While jogging always use the wrist strap and make sure that the seat is in the straight position. The strollers can take maximum weight of 75 pounds and height of 44 inches.

The main differences are the adjustable handlebar that the flex model has as well as the different color options. The SE model’s handlebar is set at a fixed height and it is not adjustable. As parents and caretakers are of different heights and shapes, the adjustable handlebar helps them conveniently handle the stroller and fix the height of it according to their height. It prevents you from stooping down to push the stroller and offer convenient maneuverability. Secondly, Flex is available in more color options when compared to SE model.

Conclusion

If you really do not want to hurt your back by stooping forward it is recommended that you go for BOB Revolution Flex as it comes with an adjustable handlebar. The SE model comes with a fixed handlebar that might not be appropriate for your height. The funky color options and the adjustable handlebar make BOB Revolution Flex as the best choice.
