As a mom of twins, I am always looking for ways to make my life easier. Whether it’s getting a double cart at the grocery store, driving a minivan, or color coordinating all of our sippy cups, I do what I can to simplify our daily routine. One item that I won’t compromise on is a good double stroller. It has been a must-have since the girls were born. I always have ours in the van at all times. Up until recently, I wouldn’t even go into a store without it. Now that girls are older I use it less frequently but it still comes in handy.
About a month ago, I received a Kelty Speedster Swivel-Deuce double jogging stroller for review and it’s been great for implementing exercise back into my routine. Ever since the weather has been a little cooler, I’ve been itching to get outside and go jogging. It’s normally hard to find the time to sneak away and have someone to watch the kids, but thanks to the Kelty I can just strap the girls in and go jogging any time!
The Kelty Speedster Swivel-Deuce is a high-performance stroller that meets the needs of an on-the-go family. Whether you are looking to take a casual walk, or kick it into high-gear and prepare for a marathon, the Kelty has the features you need to make it happen.
- Secure 5-point, adjustable child’s harness
- Rear wheel brakes
- Runaway leash
- Swivel front wheel, with lockout option
- Easy folding design
- Bell to alert others
- Independently reclining seats
- Fully padded seat and frame
- Adjustable height handle (34-45″)
- Quick-release wheels
- Adjustable sun/rain hood
- Lightweight aluminum frame
- Reflective accents
- Seat-back storage pocket with key fob
- Under-seat storage bin
- Water bottle holders
What I love about the Kelty Speedster Swivel-Deuce:
- Lightweight — only weighs 26 lbs
- Maneuvers easily
- Smooth ride
- Folds easily and fits well in vehicle
- Comfortable seats
- Storage basket is large and easy to access
- Cup holders and storage on the back of the seats come in handy
- Adjustable handlebar is great since my husband and I are different heights
What I think could be improved:
- The sun shade does it’s job, but it’s a pain to adjust — it would be better if there were dual canopies that could be adjusted individually
- It would be nice if the seats reclined a little further
- I would like to see the option to buy a child tray/parent cup holder
- It is hard to lock and unlock the yellow locking clips — my husband has to do it for me (see pic below)
The Bottom Line
The Kelty Speedster Swivel-Deuce is a great option if you are in the market for a double jogging stroller. It may not have all the bells and whistles, but at $499.95 it is more affordable than some of the other brands out there. If you only need a single jogging stroller, the Kelty Speedster Swivel-Deluxe is cheaper alternative at $399.95. In my opinion, the Kelty Speedster is just as good as a BOB and it comes with an easier-to-swallow price tag.
The Kelty Speedster Swivel-Deuce or Swivel-Deluxe can be purchased directly from Kelty.com.
