Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller Features

Run-ability

The Expedition isn’t the best choice for dedicated runners. The Expedition is the cheapest product in the review, but it still scores higher in this key metric than many strollers almost twice its price.

Ease of Use

The Baby Trend is easy to use and impressive for a stroller of this price.

Fold and Unfold

Folding the Expedition is fairly straightforward. It is a two-handed fold initiated by sliding the side levers up and one pull on the handle located under the seat. It has a manual fold lock, self-stands and you can remove the front wheel for a more compact fold.

Brakes

The brakes are double action and require two pedals be pressed for the brakes to be engaged. We worry parents will grow complacent and forget to set both or choose not to. The pedals are average to set and release and are not sandal foot friendly as they are stiff and the underside of the pedal is rough.

Further Explanation

These results make it a user-friendly option with some features the competition fails to offer like a parent console and child tray. Unfortunately, the Expedition isn’t the best for running, and its lack of suspension and adjustable tracking made it a no-go for our professional runner.

We suspect any dedicated runner will find it challenging to run with regularly, but it is suitable for short jogs and parents looking for rubber pneumatic tires to move over uneven terrains. For the price, we think the casual runner will be happy with what the Expedition has to offer, making it a stroller we recommend, but not for the serious runner.
