Thule Urban Glide 2 review: Design

The Thule Urban Glide 2 is all about life on the move. With a three-wheel configuration, this jogging stroller gives you both balance and speed on any terrain.

The 16-inch rear wheels offer excellent balance, while the 12-inch front wheel makes it easy to navigate obstacles. You can switch the front wheel to either swivel or lock depending on your needs.

Thule urban glide 2 review: Features

If you like to stay fit by jogging or running regularly, the Thule Urban Glide is the stroller made for you. Specifically created for running and jogging with your baby, the Urban Glide makes staying fit easy for you, without compromising on baby comfort.

There’s even a storage section underneath the seat where you can keep all the items your little ones need.

The storage section comes with a large cargo basket and zip-top cover for protection from the rain. There’s a rear mesh pocket for easy access to must-have items, and two mesh compartments for toys, or snacks.

This lightweight all-terrain jogging stroller comes with an ergonomic adjustable handlebar, where you’ll find your convenient twist handbrake.

The protective canopy can shift into various positions to defend your baby from rain or sunlight, and there’s ventilation on the sides for good airflow.

One particularly interesting feature is the simple seat recline system, which you can use with one hand.

For a price of around $500, the Thule Urban Glide 2 is a luxury stroller purchase, with features like:

  • All-terrain 3-wheel design
  • One-handed compact folding

Thule Urban Glide 2 review: Performance

When it comes to evaluating the performance of a jogging stroller, there are a few things to consider. This product needs to be easy to use, safe for your child, and a delight to jog with. From an ease-of-use perspective — it’s excellent.

The Thule Urban Glide 2 comes with a variety of features that you only need one hand to use, including the integrated hand brake. This means that you can easily stop your stroller in seconds.

There’s also a foot-operated parking brake for additional peace of mind, although this is fairly large, so make sure you’re ready to stamp down when necessary.

From a safety and comfort perspective for your child, the Thule jogging stroller has a lot to offer.

There’s a safety strap attached to the handlebar that you can wrap around your wrist to avoid losing the stroller controller. The seat for your child comes with excellent padding and a good weight capacity to suit a range of children.

With infinite recline options, you can find the position that’s best for your child, but this product isn’t recommended for new-borns, as it doesn’t recline to a fully flat position.

On the seat, you also get a five-point padded harness to keep your baby in place. The harness is extremely soft, so it won’t rub or nip against your child’s skin.

Every part of this device is tailored for safety, with reflective components that illuminate in the dark for safer night-time strolls.

Thule urban glide 2 review: Verdict
The Thule Urban Glide 2 is a clever and versatile jogging stroller with a lot of great features to offer. If you’re looking for an agile three-wheeled pushchair that can handle a range of terrains, then this is the product for you.

There’s plenty of storage space, and tons of comfort and security elements to keep your baby happy.

This jogging stroller is excellent for families that want to get out and explore the world. This Scandi stroller is a delight to use, though it can take some getting used to if you haven’t had a similar stroller before.
