BOB Gear, maker of the popular BOB jogging stroller line, has introduced three new models aimed at budget-minded customers.
In a news release, the company touted its reputation for high-quality, high-performance products that “rarely cause crashes that require a settlement with federal regulators” but acknowledged that its strollers’ relatively steep prices can be a barrier for lower income parents.
“Our new line, called BOB Basics, aims to change that,” the news release said. “Each stroller in the BOB Basics collection offers the quality you’ve come to expect from BOB but at prices that fit any budget.”
The new strollers range in price from $49 to $129.
The BOB Basics line includes:
The Haul Around (pictured above), a sturdy single-wheeled stroller inspired by cargo bikes, boasting “Dual Push™ handles, stainless steel construction, and 6 cubic feet capacity.”
The City ‘Scape (at right), a super-lightweight, collapsible model whose sleek design “makes it perfect for travel and for navigating crowded urban spaces.”
The Bucket, a 20-gallon bucket atop “360° OmniTurn™ casters for maximum maneuverability.”
“These models will hold not just your child but also—depending on the model you choose—your phone, water bottle, keys, plants, topsoil, groceries, 20 gallons of liquid, or any number of items,” said the news release.
BOB Basics strollers are now available online and at Lowe’s and Home Depot stores nationwide.
