Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love taking walks with the Urban Glide This stroller was gifted to me and I am so glad that I have it! Now, I'm actually not a runner/jogger, but I do enjoy taking walks in my neighborhood, which has no paved sidewalks. This stroller is amazingly smooth and my 7 month old seems to like the ride. There was one time that I attempted to take him out with our "regular" stroller since I was just planning for a short 10 minute stroll, but it was so bumpy once I hit the asphalt that I turned right around and put him in the Glide! The steering is so smooth and the suspension is amazing. Great storage, too. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Had this stroller for 9 months. Spent months researching versatile jogging strollers. It was everything I'd wanted. The all-in-one, everything stroller. Got rid of all our other strollers and only used this one. I purchased the car seat adapter. We took the baby everywhere in this thing - errands, walks, runs. Folded up so compactly and I could pull it in and out of my mini-van with one hand. Very lightweight, narrow/compact, simple, and back wheels come off with the push of a button if you're really tight on space. I recommended it to everyone. I was looking forward to actually logging some longer runs with this stroller, this summer, but the front wheel has started to wobble. I'm so disappointed. I may just take a chance and deal with it, because I can't find another jogging stroller that's so simple, versatile, lightweight and compact. Thule hit a home-run with this one, but they really need to figure out the front wheel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with Thule Urban Glide Stroller The Urban Glide has several nice features: it is relatively light compared to competition (nice when putting in car); it has an adjustable handle height (I am 6'3", wife is 5'5"), that makes a world of difference on my back, especially when I run; it folds easily with a 1 hand operation; the bottom storage is covered, keeping stuff secure and cleaner; the canopy offers good coverage and has several positions; the swivel wheel in front lets the stroller maneuver well. After using it for 2 months, I would say a small fault is getting the front wheel to track straight in the lock position takes too much effort. It doesn't seem to be a "set-it-and-forget-it" type feature. Other than that, it is a very nice stroller and appears to be of a well thought design. We owned a BOB Revolution and used it thoroughly, selling it prematurely before 2nd child's arrival. I have been testing the Urban Glide with my 4 year old son on runs and walks. He doesn't need a stroller (he has crazy energy). But, he likes riding when I run and says it is a comfortable ride ( he weighs 36lbs). I hope this review encourages people to try out Thule Urban Glide. It is nice to see a stroller with nice features and quality build.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stroller when the front wheel works I love this stroller after I exchanged it due to a front wheel issue. REI is the best place to get this. My first thule urban glide, when the front wheel is in the locked position, would still walk to the right after a short run. After testing out with different dial position (for the angle adjustment of the front wheel) for 2 weeks, I was not able to get the wheel to stay tracking straight (front wheel points back is better than points forward). It always veers right even when I set it to point left at the beginning of my run. After speaking to an REI employee on the phone and learning that no other customers complain about the same issue, I decided to exercise the return policy. My second thule urban glide works great out of the box. I would give my second stroller a 5 star, but be aware of the front wheel issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design & Smooth Ride My wife and I had read some questionable reviews for this stroller but our reservations were put to rest after using it a few times. Definitely an adjustment from our City Mini but now I couldn't imagine another stroller to run with. The secure storage is great and it is very easy to fold up. Wheels pop on and off without hassle in order for us to store it in our car. If I had to offer one critique it would be that the seat does not go completely upright, but our daughter seems to enjoy the ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stroller My wife and I just had our first child and wanted a second stroller for our long walks as well as running. We had planned on purchasing a BOB but when we walked into REI we saw the Thule Urban Glide and fell in love. It’s smaller and lighter but does not compromise space for the baby/child. Its ability to fold much easier then the BOB was also a huge selling point as well as the quick disconnect of the rear tires. I own other Thule products from bike racks to roof racks and knew they made quality products that will last a long time. So far we have truly enjoyed the Urban Glide although we have not had a chance to run with it yet since the baby is only a few weeks old. We also purchased the car seat adapter which was easy to install and our Britax car seat fits perfect. It also does not interfere with the collapsing of the stroller and actually folds with it making it almost seem as if it’s not there. Something the BOB does not due. We also enjoy the storage space on the bottom which completely zips shut keeping dirt out. The addition of the zipped pouch is also a nice touch. The folding canopy actually can fold forward allowing you to skip the small window if you want a better view of your child. The reflective piping around the hood is also a nice touch. The adjustable handlebar has been great as my wife is much shorter than me and adjusts it to fit her. Looking forward to enjoying this product for years to come and would recommend to anyone over the BOB. We have had multiple people ask us about in our neighborhood saying they had no idea Thule made a stroller. My brother and sister in law also have a BOB and said they wished they had gotten the Thule!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and easy I like almost everything about this product, how it folds the simple design and the maneuverability. The only thing that has been a issue is the basket. It's tucked in and have had trouble getting a bag inside with how close it is to the underside of the seat. I don't see myself cramming to many thing in there though so may not always be an issue. Can't be perfect 5 stars for that reason though.

Questions & Answers

I have been looking to find any information on what the weight and child size limits and entry size are but can't seem to find that information anywhere. I am assuming you can't use this with a newborn?

Asked by: schroeem
The Urban Glide is not recommended for children under 6 months of age. Thule states that the child must be able to hold his/her head up. For children under 6 months, the Thule Glide Car Seat Adapter and your car seat would be required. http://www.rei.com/product/871115/thule-glide-car-seat-adapter The maximum weight capacity on the Urban Glide is 75 pounds. You can view the owner's manual on Thule's website for additional information.

How does the Urban Glide handle while jogging on uneven ground, such as asphalt/sidewalk bumps from tree roots, and well maintained dirt paths or grass?

Asked by: StacyMeissner
The Urban Glide is equipped with rear suspension which will absorb the shock of small bumps. Thule states that "The carrier is intended for use within the performance ranges specified for the carrying of children in daylight hours, on sidewalks and smooth paths."
