In our first year, we, at Strollbery, helped thousands of parents from 207 countries. And helping is what we've cared about the most.

We are OH-SO-MUCH into Christmas (& music) that we made a special holiday song for you to share this vibe. We hope it brings you a tiny bit of calmness (we all need) ♥️

HAPPY STROLLING AND MAGIC CHRISTMAS!

The Uppababy Ridge is an October 2021 release of an all-terrain jogger, enhancing the Uppababy stroller portfolio with a new type and lifestyle stroller. The three-wheeled Ridge is robust and a bit bulky, meaning it will endure even bad terrain ride or jogging. The 12" front swivel wheel will serve you while turning but offers an easy locking system for sports/running with your pushchair. An advantage is also the double built-in suspension system that will absorb shock, mainly on the rear part of the frame. All wheels are maintenance-free, forever-inflated rubber tires with deep tread. There's a set of two brakes, the central push-push style brake activated with a red pedal on one side and deactivated with a green pedal on the other, and a deceleration disk hand brake.

The world-facing-only seat boasts a nice and high seat back and enough space even for larger toddlers. The fully reclinable seat itself is usable from 3 months up for jogging from 8 months and up. To use the Ridge from birth, car seat adapters (usable also for the Uppababy bassinet) are available to pair the pushchair up with Uppababy or other know brands, creating a travel system. Fashion-conscious moms will appreciate other canopy colors ("Swatches") that can be bought extra (and you can get up to 4 colors from Uppababy for free if you're indecisive). An optional PiggyBack sibling board accessory is also available to accommodate a smaller baby and a larger child on the same stroller frame.

parents say thx^^
  • high-quality
  • nice push
  • adjustable handlebar
  • handbrake, flip-flop friendly pedal brake
  • extendable hood
  • awesome storage basket
  • textile drinks holder included
  • wheels & suspension
  • slanted seat
  • narrow seat; could be more spacious
  • no leg rest adjustment
  • foam push bar
  • rain cover not included
  • rotating parent handle won't be tall-dad friendly

This is a bulky-ish pushchair, no doubt about it, but it also means it will last and pushes excellently even if the terrain is not that excellent. I personally like the rotating push bar, even though it is also a downside for my hubby which is talles, so would welcome a telescoping one to have more space for his long stride. The shorter base (compared with ie. Thule jogging strollers) is definitely a plus, but the wider base, on the other hand, won't be your friend around shops and any narrower doorways).

Loving!!! the storage, it is huge and can be covered. Also loving the robust wheels that don't need inflating. The shock-absorbers in the back are also a very nice addition (the front wheel is harsher in terms of suspension, but works well and doesn't get stuck on tree roots).

And the seat - nice, comfy, high quality, just a bit slanted (which strap-operated isn't, though)... and it could be roomier (wider, with more space to the canopy). I miss an adjustable leg rest, however, I don't get why they don't put such a feature in, I mean, it would be an advantage over Thule, wouldn't it? baby Jogger does that already, too... 🙃

Any my last niggle with this is the foam handle. A premium brand-jogger, so why not eco-leather (at least as an optional accessory)?

All in all, a very very nice jogging pushchair. Sturdy. High quality. Not the cheapest, of course, so I would expect more premium details, more accessories/gimmicks included, something... Still, it is a thing that will last, so for an active lifestyle, one of the better options.

Fantastic and sturdy
