Let’s Talk Thule Baby Carriage

Columnist Kirk Yuhnke steps away from tech this month to review his latest baby gear purchase.

As a Dad of three, I know that staying in shape can be a struggle. Between drum lessons, homework and school schedules, who has time? As the weather warms up, a jogging stroller could be just the thing that helps make it possible. A company that you wouldn’t normally associate with a jogging stroller has come out with one that you might just fall in love with.

Thule is known for their backpacks, cargo boxes and roof racks. The Swedish company has taken their expertise in building lightweight, rugged products and applied it to the world of strollers. The results are pretty impressive.

The Thule Urban Glide comes mostly assembled. It took me about five minutes to pop together the remaining pieces. I was surprised at how light the stroller is and how sturdy it seemed. It’s built like everything else Thule makes, to withstand a serious beating.

I”ve been through multiple jogging strollers with my first two kids and none have ever impressed me. From wiggly front wheels to plastic parts that break within the first week, it’s been frustrating. After one quick jog with the Urban Glide I could tell that this one is different. It feels solid and built like a rock.

You will pay a bit more for the Thule Urban Glide; suggested retail is $399. From my short time with the Urban Glide, I think it is money well spent. Colorado parents looking for a reliable, rugged stroller to withstand our Colorado trails will find the Thule Urban Glide is built for the task.
