The Best Schwinn Jogging Stroller. The Schwinn Turismo Vs. The Schwinn Free Runner

Schwinn is a household name, from bicycles to exercise equipment, I think everyone, at some point, owned a Schwinn product. They’re backed by over 100 years of quality made products, so it’s no surprise that they’re one of the top selling jogging strollers on the market today. But, you didn’t come here for a history lesson, so let’s get this comparison started.

The Schwinn Turismo and the Schwinn Free Runner are actually quite different. The Schwinn Turismo is an “all-terrain” jogging stroller with a front 12-inch swivel wheel, whereas the Schwinn Free Runner is “true” jogging stroller with a fixed wheel. The swivel wheel offers expert maneuverability, and turns on a dime. It makes navigating through tight corners, and narrow shopping aisles a breeze. The fixed wheel is intended for the serious jogger or runner. It tracks straight and provides excellent durability on any trail. If you’re a “serious” runner, than you’ll understand the need for confidence in your equipment, especially if baby is on board.

The only real similarities are the foot activated parking brakes, the aluminum frames, 5-point child safety harness’s, reclining seats, sun/rain shields, under-seat storage, and the parent trays. The Schwinn Turismo weighs 31 pounds and has a max weight of 60 pounds, whereas the Schwinn Free Runners weighs less, at 26 pounds, but holds 10 pounds less with a max weight of 50 pounds.  The Schwinn Turismo has a few extra features, as do most all-terrain jogging strollers. Extra features include a pivoting child’s tray with cup holders, built-in MP3 speaker, spring loaded suspension and shocks, as well as a remote locker for the front swivel wheel, which is attached to the handle bar. The Schwinn Free Runner does not include as many extra’s, but it does come with a hand brake attached to the handle bar, and a rear suspension system with shocks. The seat cabin is also well ventilated, to keep you child cool and comfortable on a hot summer day.

The only other difference is the price. The Schwinn Turismo has a listing price of $199.99, whereas the Schwinn Free Runner has a listing price of $170.00 – $239.99, depending on color schemes and extra features. All in all, both of these Schwinn Jogging Strollers are excellent buys, it all depends on the intended purpose. If you’re a serious runner/jogger, than the Schwinn Free Runner was built for you, however if you are a “kind of serious” jogger, than you may want to take a closer look at the Schwinn Turismo.
