    Runner’s comparison to InStep Run Around LTD, September 2, 2010

    Ran with the InStep Flash for the first time today. We had the InStep Run Around LTD for a while, sent it back under warranty and they replaced it with the Flash. My husband and I both run 2-3 times a week with our 18 month old, avg of 3-5 miles per run.

    Pros:
    Attractive – orange and gray look great.
    Folding – very easy folding mechanism, much easier than the old model.
    Storage basket – very deep and roomy, holds lots of items securely.
    Padded seat – not actually very “padded” – still feels hard, but better than nothing.
    Sturdy – seems overall stronger and more sturdy than previous model.

    Cons:
    Handle height – I am 5’2″ and found the handle to be too high for my comfort. I didn’t have as much leverage to make turns, which made steering more difficult. Also, the handle is hard plastic (not cushioned foam), which with sweaty hands, can be uncomfortable and difficult to grip.

    No shocks – The Flash has no rear shocks, which I feel made for a smoother ride and easier turning with the Run Around.

    Bulky – can’t really specify here, other than to say for a short person, it just felt cumbersome to maneuver/fold/attach and the remove wheels.

    Folding – takes some practice to get the hang of it. The storage basket needs to collapse a certain way in order for the stroller to fold correctly. Also, the seat back needs to be in the flat/reclined position.

    Also worth mentioning – I drive a Corolla and was able to fit the stroller in my trunk with the rear wheels removed (which is easy to do). Also, the stroller may veer a bit to one side or the other, but a quick adjustment to the front wheel will help that (though repeated adjustments may be necessary). The manual gives instructions for adjusting the front brake, which I did adjust slightly. It was a little tricky, but doable. The brakes are a little squeaky but do work well.

    Overall, this feels like a decent quality, solid jogging stroller (as far as “budget” joggers go). It’s not terribly comfortable to run with, but it’s probably reasonable for shorter runs (2-4 miles). As long as my child is happy (which he was), I can live with it. For the price, I think it’s a good deal.

    Unfortunately, we had to return the stroller because it steered to the right quite substantially. My husband, who use to be a bike mechanic, said that because the piece that attaches the wheel is plastic, it will be very weak and most likely always steer to one side…not so good if you plan on running with the stroller.

    This jogging stroller is awesome! My son absolutely loves it. Set up was fairly easy except the brake pad on the front wheel is difficult to adjust, but other than that it was simple to put together.
