Baby Jogger Summit X3 Stroller is an award-winning jogging stroller which offers exceptional performance and maneuverability on any terrain. It weights 28 pounds (12.7 kg) and can handle a maximum weight of 75 pounds (34 kg). This stroller dimensions are 45.1“ x 25.6“ x 40.6“ when unfolded. The regular price for this stroller is 429,99$ but you can find for around 350$ on Amazon and for around 400$ on Ebay . The price seem to be very high, but if we consider quality of this stroller, then it is a very good deal. I like the fact that the stroller is made of high quality materials and has some innovative features like hand brake or mesh window for air circulation. Let’s dive into what the key features are.
1. Huge Canopy
The stroller comes with beautiful large canopy which has a 3 panel extension and really does keep your kids protected from harsh sunlight and rain. As you can see in the picture, there are 2 meshed windows at each side of canopy which provide air circulation on a hot summer day (they can be closed when its cold outside).
2. Two Peek-a-boo Windows
Peek-a-boo windows with velcro closure are located in the back and at the top of the canopy. They help you with keeping an eye on your little stroller companion. How great is that this stroller has not one, but two peek-a-boo windows!!
3. Handle Bar
The handle bar has a rubber cover that is very easy to clean and it does not absorb sweat like foam handle bar. But, the rubber might get hot to the touch on a warm sunny day. The handle bar is not adjustable.
4. Wrist Strap
Safety feature that ensure the stroller is always within reach. It is attached to the bottom frame of the stroller to ensure that in case you fall while jogging, the stroller will not fall down with you.
5. Extra Comfortable Seat
The seat is 14.5” wide so there are tons of space even for a tall toddler. It is made of very high quality material which is very easy to clean. Also, the seat is padded so it is very softy and I am sure that your baby will love it.
6. Deep Seat Recline
The seat back does recline in an infinite number of positions all the way to about 20 degrees from flat. I like how the seat almost lies completely flat when fully reclined so you can put your newborn into it.
7. Mesh Window
Mesh window is great feature for extra comfort for your baby. It creates a nice air circulation if it gets too hot, but could be covered with a piece of material hidden in the back of the canopy when you do not want any air circulation into the stroller.
8. 5-point Harness
The stroller is equipped with padded and adjustable 5-point harness. The harness is really hard to unbuckle for a kid, which means your kids will be always safe and secure in the stroller seat.
The stroller has 3 air-filled tires, two in the back and single swivel wheel in the front. I prefer strollers with pneumatic tires more then that with plastic wheels because there is a significant difference regarding comfort while walking.
10. Front Wheel Remote Lock
The front swivel wheel can be quickly locked straight. While other strollers require going to the front of the stroller to lock or unlock the wheel, all you need to do with this stroller is to use remote lock located near the back of the seat.
11. All Wheels Suspension
The stroller comes with three wheel suspension system. This feature helps with keeping the ride smooth and it absorbs bumpy and uneven surfaces.
12. Parking Brake
There is easy accessible foot brake located between rear wheels. To activate the brake, you need to step on the red pedal and bring it down (you will hear “click”).
13. Hand Brake
Great innovative feature which allows you to slow down the stroller when you need to do that, especially when you are jogging down the hill. It is the same brake as on the bicycle, just squeeze the brake to slow down the stroller.
14. Large Storage Basket
The stroller has large under seat storage basket where you can keep you essential items like mobile phone, diapers, snacks, toys, water bottle etc. The basket can handle maximum weight of 10 pounds (4.5 kg). I like how the basket is easy accessible through all sides of the stroller.
15. Easy Fold
This stroller comes with quick fold technology which folds the stroller in one step. All you need to do is pull up the strap located in the middle of the seat and it will fold and after that you need to lock it using a velcro strap.
1. No automatic lock
As I mentioned before, when folded, you need to lock the stroller with a velcro strap.
2. No additional items included
There are not some additional items like cup holder, child tray, belly bar etc. included with this stroller.

What other parents say about this stroller:
„I went back and forth between this and a B.O.B. for weeks. After deciding on this one, the minute I pushed it I was in love. My daughter who is 2 has never been a good sleeper out of the house and she’ll fall asleep in this during outings and stay sleeping for hours. I love the brake on the handle, as it’s amazing when it comes to going down hills whether I’m exercising or at the the zoo. It’s so easy to fold and simply pops open with one hand (although it is heavy to do with one hand). I would highly recommend this over and over.“
„We tried alot of joggers in store. This beats out the BOB revolution by far. Much smoother to push, more comfotable for the baby, and we loves that you can remotely change the front wheel to swivel or straight. We love this jogger.“
„LOVE IT!!!! I researched for months trying to decide between Baby Jogger & B.O.B. I’m glad I settled on this. It was easy to put together (did it myself in less than 10 minutes). The wheel lock feature is fantastic and transitions smoothly. I was afraid it would be too large to use as an everyday stroller but I’ve used it at grocery and department stores, maneuvering it is a breeze. I got the rain cover for it too. Awesome.“
