Thule Urban Glide Stroller Review

Niels Oomkes

I am a multi-sport endurance athlete, and love to get out into the great outdoors to push the body to its limit. Most of my weekend expeditions, adventures, trips, or vacations are planned around running, biking, snowshoeing, camping, or anything else that will allow me to enjoy nature's exquisite beauty.

    Thanks for a great review.
    Have a question. Thule also producing a Thule Glide with fixed wheel and handbrake.
    After intensive use of Thule Urban Glide and you as a endurance athlete, would you change for Thule Glide?
    Are you using Urban Glide in trails e.g. forrest, rocky terrain and etc? Would Thule Glide with a fixed wheel and a handbrake suits more for it?

    Hey Gunnar. The Urban Glide was used more in a neighborhood park and gravel trail setting. Nothing really to technical from a rocky, root, or bumpy perspective. I am personally not a fan of a fixed wheel, it just means pushing down on the handle bars to turn and maneuver. My smallest is now 4, and heavy enough not to cause any bumpy spinning of the wheel unless you push down on the handle bars too much. As far as a handbrake goes, I think that’s just extra stuff. 7 years of solid stroller running, and I’ve not lost a kid yet…….. 🙂

    Hi! I’ve been running with my urban glide for about 5 months. Baby is finally old enough not to need the carseat anymore! I’ve logged prob 35-40+ miles a week. I prefer to run with the front wheel I unlocked. However, on a run last week the front wheel started wobbling uncontrollably- like a really bad shopping cart wheel! Impossible to run like that. I’ve been able to keep using it by locking the front wheel but it kinda seems like things are a little “shaky” still. I would really like to have the option of running with it unlocked again. Do you know what could be causing this and how I could fix it??? Thanks!!!
