The new BOB Alterrain and BOB Alterrain Pro add performance, convenience and style to BOB’s popular line of jogging strollers.

The BOB Alterrain and Alterrain Pro are the same stroller at their core, sharing features like robust suspension for the best shock absorption while running and a standing fold for easier lifting into your car.

But the Alterrain Pro caters to the most serious of running parents, with upgraded features like a hand brake, zippered basket and waterproof fabrics, while the Alterrain includes softer colors and a lower price point that may appeal to a more casual jogger.

Both the BOB Alterrain and Alterrain Pro are now in stock at Strolleria. Let’s take a look at the differences in this comparison.
