Jogging strollers are a great investment for parents who value fitness and want to give their kids time outside. However, many taller parents may have trouble finding a jogger stroller that will allow them to maintain proper posture while running or jogging with their child. Knowing what features to look for in a stroller can help taller parents find the perfect fit.

Handlebars for Your Height

While the height of handlebars on jogging strollers varies depending on the manufacturer, most jogging strollers are designed for people of average heights. Jogging strollers that are the most suitable for tall parents feature handlebars that are adjustable. For example, Baby Joggers' City Versa stroller and Phil & Teds' Sub 4 stroller both feature handlebars that can be adjusted to accommodate individual users.

Jog Without Tripping

A short distance between rear wheels can cause a problem for taller parents. Jogging strollers that feature shorter distances between rear wheels have a more sleek look, but are not suitable for tall parents who take longer strides when they run. Some jogging and all-terrain strollers, including the Joovy Zoom 360 and Bumbleride Indie, feature tires with wide-set rear wheels that are suitable for tall parents.
