The Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight is a great jogging stroller with a large seat, huge canopy, and big basket all for under $300. We like that it lost a little weight from the previous Zoom model making the weight competitive with other joggers. If you are looking for a quality jogging stroller that will accommodate bigger kids with ease and won’t break the bank, we suggest taking a peek at the Joovy Zoom 360 Ultralight.
The Joovy Zoom 360 is a jogging stroller with a quick-fold handle under the seat, a large under-seat basket, an organizer with zippered storage, and two water bottle holders. Consumer testers found the Zoom 360 cumbersome to navigate around small spaces, making the stroller less useful for everyday use. Additionally, the stroller feels less stable than its more expensive competition.
The assembled stroller is quite large, but not bigger than I expected. I am pleasantly surprised by how small it can fold up to fit in storage or in my car. Even with all the wheels still in place, the Joovy Zoom 360 folds up smaller than my hand-me-down jogging stroller. And let me just tell you how easy the wheels are to take off! Collapsing the stroller is quick and smooth, but it does take two hands. I’m not always in a place where I can put the baby down, so having a two-handed release is not ideal. Once you have those two hands free, though, it only takes one quick pull to collapse, and the stroller locks together on its own.
The wheels are rubber, air-filled, and the front tire swivels or locks in place; it’s up to you. And guess what? It comes with a tire pump! The best thing about this tire pump is that the Joovy Zoom 360 includes a spot to Velcro the pump to the storage basket, which means no losing the tire pump! Thank goodness! There’s also a foot pedal brake underneath the storage basket. It is only on one side (the right), but it’s easy to engage and disengage.
