Great kit for your Chariot
The build quality of this kit is excellent, and I love the way it matches and accents our CX2. It looks great (we're suckers for the red metallic look), and it stores very nicely with the aluminum arms on the sides of the chassis and the quick-release style wheel strapped to the trunk/back pocket. As another reviewer noted, it hangs a little low when you have it stored on the back in the folded-down position, so we leave it at home if we are planning on using the stroller kit and want to use the back storage area.
At first we found that the stroller wheel rubbed against the canvas of the cockpit a bit when in use, but we found that you just have to adjust it perfectly to avoid this - sometimes it's not seated perfectly in the arms and you have to re-secure the wheel. This wheel goes over obstacles very well (much better than your average stroller, and even better than our BOB stroller) on account of its larger size.
The tubing included with this kit is the same thin tube material that comes with your chassis, so you may want to look into replacing it with something more robust. At the very least, slime is a must to keep pumping to a minimum. We found ourselves pumping the tire up every couple of weeks or so until we replaced the original tube.
We have also jogged with the stroller kit as we like the maneuverability - sometimes it can be annoying to have to course-correct with this jogging kit (as it is fixed-wheel). But it is definitely the better option between the two if you are running all-out for stability and control or if you expect to encounter obstacles along the way. Great job, Chariot. We are big fans.
Good part, will fit the cougar 2, but doesn't come with the brake kit. The end of the shaft bent on me somehow the first time I used it, but it doesn't affect its usage.
