Joovy announces the release of a new jogging stroller, the Zoom360 Ultralight. This sleek and sporty jogger prioritizes mobility and functionality while respecting your checkbook.
Active parents want to be outside moving, burning calories and seeing the world. The Zoom360 Ultralight is a high-performing jogger that offers the best running experience possible. Meeting this expectation, the Zoom360 Ultralight is feature-packed and weighs in at 10% lighter than the previous model at 25.7 lbs.

In step with its high-end competition, the Zoom360 Ultralight comes with a straight through axle and excellent suspension for the smoothest ride. The Zoom360 has the capability to lock the front swivel wheel, which allows an easy transition from running to walking. Included with the Zoom is a neoprene parent organizer that holds two cups, has a zippered container, and uses a simple on/off mounting system.

The November issue of Pregnancy and Newborn is chock-full of of great pregnancy advice and good information for moms and moms-to-be. Their ‘Good Gear/Road Test’ feature, On the double, highlights some double strollers the team at P&N feels important to take note of if you’re in the market for a double stroller. We are thrilled that the Joovy TooFold has been included. The TooFold is Joovy’s ‘all-terrain’ stroller that has amazing functionality as a single, double and stand-on tandem.
On the double: Searching for a set of wheels that can transport multiple tots? Read more
P & N has dubbed the TooFold “Joy Ride” and says, ” Multi-purpose is the best word to describe the TooFold. It’s a single stroller with a built-in sstanding platform that can be flipped out of the way when not in use. Add a second seat (sold separately) if both passengers want to sit, or attach the huge storage bag for extra cargo capacity. We love the rugged adaptability.”
