Being a mom entails running about … constantly being on the go. And yet, as moms, we struggle to lead a truly active lifestyle with proper fitness activities for ourselves as we are always putting our children’s needs and health first. I recently had a very eye-opening conversation with Libi Roos (she and her daughter actually won a photoshoot on the blog with my Modern Mommy photographer, Nicky Stowe and that’s how I met her, though afterwards I realized she was the incredible person who was doing the most awesome facials – AND she’s offered a skin makeover for one of my lucky readers, so stay visiting for THIS giveaway too). She told me that after her husband passed away, she actually cancelled her gym subscription and bought a Thule stroller which she could run with on the promenade with her darling daughter and thus stay fit and have some bonding time and fitness training after work. Libi is an incredible mom and woman and I am so happy to have met her through the blog.
So, when Thule contacted me and let me know that they were keen to give one of my readers an incredible stroller, I was super excited. I know the Thule brand from my husband’s roof racks on his SUV and only recently realized that they are also the ones behind the great strollers I see on the Sea Point promenade when the fit moms are out running with their little people chilling in the running strollers, waiting for suicide hour to pass. I had a look at some information on the THULE Urban Glide which is the new “IT” Sport Stroller on the market. Firstly, Thule was established in Sweden in 1942 and have a passion for the great outdoors. Secondly, their stroller was launched after they spent years researching the international stroller market. THULE then launched their exceptional Sport Stroller range with great quality and comfort known only to this innovative forward-thinking brand.
Promoting active lifestyles supported by exceptional quality, THULE continues to expand on its “Active with Kids” range that is dedicated to the outdoor transportation of children and is packed with features to keep adults active with their kids. These Sport Strollers ooze the safety and innovation that have become synonymous with the THULE brand, and will transform your family outings into unforgettable memories. Due to its simplicity of functionality, the strollers provide a no-fuss solution to going about your outdoor experience without sacrificing family time.
The THULE Urban Glide is the stroller that has it all. It is a stroller with a lightweight aerodynamic design that is perfect for serious athletes and some serious pavement pounding as well as short walks and every day errands. The sleek and lightweight stroller makes it the perfect choice for walking and running at any level.
The Urban Glide’s front wheel swivels for easy manoeuvrability and locks into place for jogging for increased stability when moving at a fast pace. The comfortably-shaped and well-positioned handlebar with extended multi-position offers a range of heights for each individual’s comfort and provides enough space ahead for a generous kick stride.
The hand-activated front brake increases braking control on steep terrain, while the rear suspension provides a smooth and comfortable ride for your precious cargo. The padded seat with vented top reclines to a near flat position, allowing your little one the chance to nap, and you can keep an eye on your child through the view-in roof of the multi-position canopy, which also protects them from the sun and elements.
The Urban Glide also offers a large storage compartment with a zippered water resistant cover for safekeeping of some essentials while walking or jogging on your favourite path.
Storing and transporting the THULE Urban Glide is a breeze – use one hand to collapse the lightweight Sport Stroller into a sleek, compact position and lift with ease to store in your car or home. Lightweight yet sturdy materials make the Sport Stroller unique and easy-to-use and transport.
The THULE Urban Glide retails for R8999 and is available in Thule Partner stores, Kids Emporium Stores and my favourite store in Green Point and for online kiddies shopping- Kids Living. For full product information, visit www.thule.com/za.
