Baby Jogger Summit X3

see 9 parent reviews

The Baby Jogger Summit X3 is the third generation of the Summit series. Summit X3 is a three-wheel hybrid suitable for running as well as for everyday use. The front wheel can be locked in a fixed position with a simple mechanism located on the handle. This makes it easy to switch between walking and jogging modes. The air-filled tires with individual suspension can handle any terrain. The seat is spacious enough even for an older child. You can recline the backrest fully. However, the leg rest cannot be adjusted. The storage space of the spacious shopping basket is expanded by the pocket on the rear part of the backrest. Adding a carrycot and/or a car seat creates a stroller system according to your needs. All accessories, including a bumper bar or a snack tray, must be purchased separately.

parents say thx^^
  • absolutely the best from my point of view
  • there are none

I wasn't even pregnant yet and I already knew what stroller I wanted :) And it didn't disappoint!

The suspension is perfect

4
  • Fantastic all-wheel suspension
  • Compact when folded
  • Large canopy
  • Full lie flat
  • Special locking for skates/running
  • High load capacity
  • Spacious
  • Stable
  • Non-adjustable parent handle
  • Does not have leg positioning

A great stroller for any terrain or sport. Due to its size it is relatively small when folded. Much smaller than, for example, the Cybex Priam.

The suspension is perfect; it is easy to handle. It's our Mr Stroller.

You can't help but love it

  • Spacious
  • Carrying capacity

  • Hand brake
  • Price

Just Mr. Pushchair. You can't help but love it!

  • Very light and compact
  • Excellent driving characteristics
  • Long canopy
  • Nice and spacious bassinet
  • Handbrake (just a little stiff)
  • Handle with a wheel lock
  • It is very difficult to brake on and off - it is almost impossible to do it barefoot or in sandals...
  • The canopy of the pushchair version does not have a safety lock, my son keeps unlocking it
  • Accessories must be purchased separately, including a belly bar and a rain cover
  • It doesn't reverse to face the parent (seat unit), but this makes the stroller lighter

A very high quality stroller that in my opinion has only a few downsides.

We first used the jogger for our son from a year and something, then the bassinet for our daughter. I was surprised that the bassinet even rocks a bit. As my (now heavier) son rode around in the pushchair, the suspension was more loaded and didn't rock as much, so I was worried about how the stroller would behave with a newborn - but I was pleasantly surprised.

However, I drive over bumps very carefully, it's not a stroller for off-road (although it can handle it), but primarily for roller skating. For a baby in a deep stroller, a classic rocking stroller is still the best for off-road, which we also have, for example, for the mountains on forest paths and trails.

  • perfect wheels and suspension
  • goes over anything, anytime
  • large hood! a lot of coverage
  • roomy seat that accommodates even an older toddler comfortably
  • covers can be all removed and washed
  • three positions of the child's belly bar
  • lies flat (not applicable for 2020+ editions)
  • a great, adjustable 5-point-harness
  • no push bar adjustment, which is a great shame
  • no legrest adjustment (you can buy a universal one)
  • though brake, not flip flop friendly
  • one-hand fold, but it means the sitting area is a bit hard for the kid
  • no pretty color combinations, it is not elegant by far
  • basket accessibility

We have used this pushchair for half a year; we bought a similar in functions, but prettier one after that.

The push is simply great, nothing to complain about in terms of driveability. It can go over any terrain, and we did go over some really harsh surfaces quite a few times. If it had an adjustable pushbar, we would still have it.

What I recommend for sure is to have a new canopy made (at a tailor). If you compare it with, ie, a Thule Urban Glide 2, the rear axle is a bit narrower, and also, it is not as long as a Thule. Which you will appreciate in narrow aisles or in elevators. This is not reflected in the seat size, however, the seat is larger than Thule's, and with much better harness.

Its a stroller to rely on

5

The best price-performance ratio. I would recommend this one to every mother. It's great for the city (yes - the curb pop, uneven surfaces, quick maneuvering, and turning in the city streets) as well as for terrain. We tackled many many miles with it - and it's a stroller to rely on.

Sturdy, good-looking, and quick to fold. I have nothing to complain about. Puncture-proofed. A good investment.

  • for any terrain
  • suspension
  • large inflatable wheels
  • spacious even for a 5-6 years old
  • easy to fold
  • stable
  • great
  • only the fact that it faces only forward
  • the handle doesn't adjust, but I am not missing that feature

It's my own personal 'tank,' and it never disappointed me. It can handle anything, even 20 cm of snow.

I will not rate it a 10 just because of the fact that it's a bit heavy to fold in the car... otherwise a perfect jogger. We used it while 'climbing' the mountains as well as other off-road, and we made it through all. It's so spacious for the child - truly a luxury, space-wise. An awesome, large hood with viewing windows, and a big basket... overall, all great, and with great maneuverability as well - no problem even with only one hand. I recommend it 😉
