Frequently Asked Questions
- Do you offer replacement parts?
For most products, we do offer replacement parts. Please click here and select Parts Inquiry or call Customer Support at 1-800-241-1848, Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm EST.
- Which of your strollers can I run with?
The Summit X3 stroller/jogger hybrid is our current jogging stroller and is intended to be used for jogging, running or exercise. The City Series and the Vue Series are urban and all-terrain strollers that provide optimum versatility for everyday use. They are not intended for jogging or running and should not be used for these activities.
- How old should my baby be before they are able to sit in the upright seat of a Baby Jogger?
Our strollers and joggers can be used for children in an upright position from approximately six months to five-years-old. We do not recommend placing your baby in the upright seat of the stroller or jogger until they are able to sit and hold their head up without assistance.
- How can I use your Baby Jogger strollers with an infant?
You can easily turn your stroller into a travel system with one of our car seat adapters or prams. We have car seat adapters available for both our single and double strollers. The Compact Pram is designed to fit on our single strollers that feature the accessory mounting bracket and a full recline or a 2011 and newer City Mini Double, City Mini GT Double and Summit X3 Double, while the Deluxe Pram is compatible with most of our single strollers. (Please note our Car Seat Adapters have a maximum weight capacity of 45 lbs - that's the combined weight of the car seat and the newborn, and our prams will hold children up to 25 lbs.)
The City Mini, City Mini GT, City Mini ZIP, City Lite, City Elite, and Summit X3 strollers have an increased recline angle to a near flat position to accommodate newborns. That means you can safely lay a baby in the fully reclined seat of these strollers without the use of a car seat adapter or bassinet. While using a Summit X3, never run or jog with your seat fully reclined. Also, please keep in mind that babies should have ample neck support when placed in the reclined seat of a stroller - you can use any number of neck supports sold at baby stores.
- Is my car seat compatible with your car seat adapters?
Please see the compatibility chart below for details on which car seat models are compatible with our strollers.
- How old should my baby be before I can jog or run with them?
We recommend that you speak with your pediatrician before starting this activity. Every baby is different, but typically a doctor will recommend that a baby be 6 months old before you jog on smooth pavement, and 12 months old before jogging on trails, grass, gravel or uneven terrain.
- What are the differences between an EVA, Forever-Air and Pneumatic tire?
An EVA tire is a lightweight molded plastic wheel that is compressible - ideal for pavement or smooth urban terrain. EVA is found on many durable goods, such as shoes. This wheel is available on our Vue Lite, City Mini, City Mini ZIP, City Lite, and City Tour strollers, which helps to make these strollers lightweight, agile and compact when folded.
A PU foam-filled tire is a "rubber like" tire, that is more durable than EVA yet still lightweight. It's ideal for multiple terrains. The City Select (front wheels only) and City Premier feature this type of tire.
A Forever-Air tire is a rubber tire inflated with a lightweight foam instead of air. This ensures the tire will not go flat with frequent use or rough terrain. This is our most all-terrain tire. The City Mini GT, City Elite, and City Select (rear wheel only) all feature Forever-Air tires.
A Pneumatic tire is an inflatable rubber tire that provides a comfortable, smooth ride on many different terrains. The Summit X3 has pneumatic tires, which adds to its all-terrain capabilities.
- Which wheel size is right for me?
We've devised the following guidelines so you can choose the right wheel size for your needs:
5.0" - 8.5" Wheels - Ideal for indoor strolls, walking on pavement or smooth urban terrain. These smaller lightweight wheels are perfect for city dwellers who need a compact stroller for every day use. Please view our Vue Lite, City Mini, City Mini GT, City Mini ZIP, City Lite, or City Tour strollers for this wheel size.
12" Wheel - Perfect for walking on grass, trails, sidewalks or in stores. Wonderful for city life where smaller wheels offer a more compact, maneuverable stroller. You will fall in love with the 12" stroller wheels if you have previously owned a conventional stroller. Please view our City Elite, City Select or Summit models for this wheel size.
16" Wheel - Great for walking or jogging and is still very easy to store and transport. It's large enough to handle snow and sand yet still small enough to fit into tight spaces. Please view our Summit X3 model for this wheel size.
- Do all of your strollers have a seat which fully reclines?
The Vue Lite, City Mini, City Mini GT, City Mini ZIP, City Lite, City Elite, and Summit X3 models have reclinable seats that are suitable for use with a newborn. Please note that the Summit X3 recline is for cruising purposes only. Please do not run or jog with the seat fully reclined. The City Premier, and City Tour have reclining seats that are suitable for use from 6 months up.
- Can I use a buggy board with your strollers?
Baby Jogger offers a convenient accessory called the Glider Board. The Glider Board attaches to the rear axle on most of our single or double strollers and provides an area for an older child to ride along. It is not compatible with the Vue Lite, City Mini ZIP, City Lite, Summit X3, or City Tour strollers. Buggy Boards made by other manufacturers are not recommended for use with Baby Jogger strollers.
- Is the fabric washable?
Yes, the seat and canopies of our strollers and joggers are made from strong, lightweight, washable fabrics which easily detach from the frame. The seat should be washed in cold water on the delicate cycle of your washing machine and attached back onto the stroller to dry.
- How much air should I put in my tires?
Baby Jogger recommends inflating your tires to 20 PSI. Your tire rim may say a maximum of 40 PSI, but please only inflate to 20 PSI. You can use a standard bicycle pump to inflate your tires.
- Are your strollers safe?
Yes! Safety comes first at The Baby Jogger Company. We test and retest our products to ensure that all our current strollers either meet or exceed ASTM and/or EN 1888 testing standards for strollers and carriages. Remember, we are the original Baby Jogger Company and that means we have over 25 years of experience caring for your precious cargo.

- What is the warranty process if I live outside of the United States?
