Pregnancy and Newborn Best All Terrain Jogging Stroller Bumbleride Indie

Pregnancy and Newborn Best All Terrain Jogging Stroller Bumbleride Indie

Read their recent in-depth Indie review here, http://www.pnmag.com/h-s/bumbleride-indie/.

“There is not much that I don’t absolutely love about this stroller. It provides a safe and comfortable ride for my child and I can take it to the mall while I shop or take it outside for a great workout. I recommend this stroller to all parents as both an everyday stroller and a jogging stroller. It is a high quality item that I expect to last through both my children. Its strong features are ideal for men yet it’s chic and elegant for women at the same time. It has a pretty steep price point but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.”

The Simple Moms – Flyer Review

Simple Moms Reversible Handle Flyer Stroller Review and Giveaway

My fourth and final baby is currently on the eve of taking his very first steps. My guess is that sometime this week it will happen, and hopefully I’ll be present to see him hit this milestone.

And wouldn’t you know it, as my youngest grows increasingly older, our one and only (10 year old) stroller recently died on us. She was a hard workin’ lady, but after four children and hundreds of miles under her wheels, she was tired. Her wheels literally started to fall off her crumb covered body.

Clearly, a mom to four young kids cannot be without a stroller! So I naturally started shopping and doing my research. And to nobody’s surprise at all, my heart landed directly on Bumbleride. Specifically, the Flyer.

When the stroller arrived, I waited for my husband to get home so we could put it together as a team. I do a lot of things well, but baby gear assembly is typically not one of those things. But from start to finish, the stroller only took around 10 minutes to assemble. Super easy, and without an ounce of frustration from either of us, which is always a nice bonus.

Once put together, we took her outside (strollers are female, right?), for her maiden voyage.  And then I heard it, the compliment of all compliments:

“Wow, this thing is actually really nice.” – said my husband.

You guys, he never EVER says nice things about baby gear. My husband complains about ALL baby gear. The way it’s constructed, the lack of functions, everything is always flawed in some way, shape, or form. But in one short walk around the neighborhood (where he stopped every few minutes to test out a feature or make an adjustment), our lady Bumbleride had won him over.

So yeah, it’s a slick ride. But what else makes the Bumbleride Flyer THE stroller to rule above all strollers?

Let’s take a minute to “talk stroller”:

You can can catch up on the details and tech specs here, but I would love just for a few minutes to touch on a few specifics that personally sold me on the Flyer:

1. The handlebar is reversible. Basically, by switching the way the handlebar is orientated (which is so easy to do), baby can either be facing you (oh hello mommy) or facing the world. Additionally, the height of the handle bar is adjustable, making it super nice for anyone of any height to use the stroller (I’m 5’3″ and my husband is 6’3″, so this feature is key).

2. The ride is exceptionally smooth, and it turns on a dime. Because both the front and rear wheels swivel independently, maneuvering the stroller is a cake walk. And on that same note, both front and back wheels can effortlessly be locked and unlocked with the quick release wheel locking system. Making whatever terrain you’re covering a smooth ride and handle.

3. The canopy is generously sized. We took the Flyer with us on vacation to the beach, and because of the large adjustable sun canopy, I was able to keep baby Paul out of the sun at all times.

4. The back seat reclines all the way back, to a flat position. Translated: impromptu naps on the go are not problem at all. And reclining from sitting to laying flat is a very smooth and quite transition if you have a baby that falls asleep in the upright position.

5. It’s compact. While there are smaller/lighter/tighter strollers on the market, in my opinion the Flyer is still very compact, without sacrificing any of the truly wonderful bells and whistles (like my favorite feature, the adjustable footrest). The stroller fits really well in the back of my minivan, with plenty of cargo room to spare. Also worth noting, it only weighs 19 pounds!

Basically, we are in huge love.

Good design + amazing function = one happy set of parents.

 So what do you think? Have I convinced you that you need a Flyer, regardless of if you’re adding it to your first child’s baby registry or swapping it out for a decade old ride like me?

Reviewed: 18 April 2013 by Claire Lavelle
Robust, big pneumatic wheels, great suspension, lightweight design, carry cot doubles up as bassinet
 
Wide wheels take a little to to adjust too, opaque rain cover, no padded lining in carry cot

New to the UK from the US, the BumbleRide is the perfect town-to-country buggy – truly all-terrain. It’s robust enough, with its big pneumatic wheels and great suspension, to handle woods and parkland in even the wettest and muddiest of conditions. It’s still light enough to use on public transport, though – even negotiating the London Tube, escalators and all, can be done!

It’s not the smallest buggy (it looks and feels rather long when in carry cot mode – when front-facing, it’s much neater), but it’s just as nippy and brilliantly manoeuvrable as smaller models thanks to the swivel function of the front wheel. It’s also really easy to steer one-handed – useful, if, like me, you have a dog on a lead in the other hand, or just like to sip a cup of coffee while you stroll. The sturdy suspension means the baby stays asleep even when I run with the buggy, and a really roomy basket underneath makes supermarket trips a cinch. A comfy handle and easy fold-down mechanism make this really practical, and the carry cot clicks on and off easily in one simple move. I don’t use this in front-facing mode yet, as my baby is only 12 weeks, but sturdy straps will make this a secure ride when the time comes, and there are various recline options for optimum comfort. A big hood protects from the elements. Folds down neatly to store in the hallway – I have a small flat and it works perfectly.

What we love

The carry cot doubles up as a bassinet that the baby sleeps in when we’re at the grandparents.  

What to watch out for 

It’s easy to misjudge the width of the back wheels – it takes a while to get used to how wide they are. Rain cover is opaque rather than clear, which makes it hard to see the baby when in carry cot function – also not a very secure fit when it’s very windy. No padded lining in the carry cot – I put a sheepskin in and it’s really snug that way, but a bit barren without…

The chassis and carry cot mean this is a bit of a beast to get in the car – I have a WV Polo and the chassis just about fits in the back, but the carry cot has to go on the back seat. Bear in mind if you have a big family / dog etc – you can’t squeeze too much else in there! 

 MadeForMums verdict 

Perfect for what I need – I tend to walk more than drive, so space in the car not too much of an issue, and I love how robust this model is. It’s great to feel that my baby is so safe. Really like the easy collapse function and the one-handed ‘pop up’. Looks sleek and elegant. Love how zippy and manoeuvrable this is – and everyone who’s used it (husband, mum, mum-in-law) has said the same.

Cool Mom Picks – Bumbleride Indie Review

Cool Mom Picks Bumbleride Indie Review All Terrain Jogger Jogging

 

They say that it’s hard to improve upon perfection, but the newest Bumbleride Indie stroller has found a way to buck that concept. We have always loved this line of super sturdy and stylish wheels, and with the newest features, there’s even more to get excited about.

Bumbleride Indie stroller at Cool Mom Picks

 The Indie actually shouldn’t just be called a stroller. It’s more like a stroller system that lets you stroll, jog, run, and most importantly, keep your precious cargo in the comfiest of settings.

I was immediately attracted to its overall look. Sporty and sleek at the same time, especially this new aquamarine shade. But there are so many features that you’ll come to expect as standards for any other stroller to follow because they just make sense and make you (aka, head pusher) the most comfortable.

Let’s start with the set-up. Right out of the box, it’s nice to know that there aren’t too many parts. Just the main body, the wheels and a couple of add-ons like an infant carrier accessory. The visual instructions (admittedly they initially scared me due to its lack of written words) are actually quite clear and will get you putting the stroller together with a few clicks, a turns and forceful pushes.

The ride is incredibly smooth, turning corners easily with its front swivel wheel (that also locks for when you’re jogging) and the cushy adjustable handlebars will suit pushers of any height (my daughter really enjoyed giving her doll a spin around the house).

Folded Bumbleride Indie stroller at Cool Mom Picks

The level of stroller sophistication you have come to expect from Bumbleride is evident throughout, with a few great updates. It’s still easy to fold down and is lightweight (around 20 lbs), but the entire frame has been redesigned for improved stability, which is always important, especially when you are pushing around littler babies. Plus I like the new footrest for kids which is one of those details you don’t care about until you have one. Plus? Good way to catch all those goldfish they’ll be dropping.

I also love that the stroller has become a little more eco-friendly, with all fabric being comprised of 50% recycled polyester and 50% bamboo charcoal.

The stroller’s canopy has an SPF of 45, which doesn’t get you out of putting on sunscreen, but it does add extra protection on those super sunny days. Now I did find the huge canopy a little tough to pull down; it felt at times to me like something was stuck. But I think it’s just designed to withstand the 8,405 times your kid grabs it and pulls it up and down herself.

Bumbleride Indie stroller harness at Cool Mom Picks

The 5-point harness has also been redesigned to offer various points of buckling and unbuckling to make it easier to get your baby out with one hand– a feature that’s tormented so many of us in other strollers so I’m glad this one works easily.

While all these updates are grand, the new colors like Aquamarine, Green Papyrus and Cayenne Red will make you want to get one in every color. Well, not really, but it’ll be fun to choose from all the options.

Bumbleride Indie stroller at Cool Mom Picks

Is the stroller pricey? Well, it’s not in Bugaboo territory, but the $500+ price tag certainly makes it an investment beyond the mass market brands. That being said, you definitely get what you pay for. While this probably isn’t the stroller that you’ll keep in the back of your car for grocery shopping and general errands, it’s the one that could certainly be the most reliable and robust of your stroller inventory, and will log hundreds of miles of good use over the years it will last (up to 45 lbs).

Just watch out: introducing this awesome Bumbleride Indie to your baby from the beginning will set them up to expect any and all future rides to be in the lap of luxury. -Jeana

Baby Gizmo 2013 Flite Review with Video

April 12th, 2013

2013 Indie review bumbleride best travel stroller

Bumbleride Flite

 More changes for the Bumbleride collection of strollers and this time we are talking about the Flite. This is Bumbleride’s lightweight, umbrella-fold stroller that is great for travel and on-the-go.

For 2013, the Flite has a few changes that are important to know:

  • Since we all know canopy size matters, we are happy that the Flite canopy is even larger this year.
  • The harness has been modified with a harder-to-do buckle and breakaway straps so that it prevents entanglement.
  • New colors
  • The Flite is only available in the Natural Fabric.

Let’s start with the new fabrics. The “Movement” and “Classic” fabrics of yesteryear are out and the Natural fabric is in. The Flite is only available in the eco-friendly fabrics that consist of a bamboo, nylon blend interior to wick away moisture from the little rider’s body and recycled polyester blend exterior.

SEAT:

The seat is roomy and accommodates up to 50 lbs so even your bigger kids can hop in for a ride when their legs get tired. It measures 13″ wide, with a 20″ seat back and a measurement of 27″ from seat to canopy. It’s a great seat for those taller toddlers!

The adjustable, padded 5-point harness has been modified for 2013 with a stronger center release button and 3 to 5 point breakaway shoulder straps which help with a faster connection and prevents entanglement. While the harness does “break away” (which can be annoying on some strollers!), we are happy that the Indie’s harness does stay clipped together when we want it to so that it doesn’t come apart every time we take our child out of the seat. The Flite has an adjustable footrest with two positions – up and down.

The seat has a deep recline that is easy to do with the one-hand strap system. (You need two hands to put the seat back up though!) Even though we’d recommend this seat for 3+ months, you can still use it with a newborn with the universal car seat adapter.

Bumbleride Flite 2013

STORAGE:

Typical for an umbrella stroller, the Flite has a very small basket. You definitely won’t get a diaper bag in there but it can hold a few baby essentials. There is also a small zipper pocket on the back of the canopy.

Bumbleride Flite 2013

There are no baby or parent trays or even a bumper bar on the Flite but there is the Bumbleride cup holder that can attach to either side of the stroller. There is also a great accessory for baby called the Snack Pack that is sold separately. The Snack Pack is a soft pouch that zips closed and is divided in two compartments inside. NOTE: The Snack Pack has to be removed to fold the Flite.

HANDLE:

The ergonomic handles are nonadjustable but they are higher at 40″ from ground to handle. Since they are separate handles, you will probably need two hands to maneuver the stroller easily.

CANOPY:

Probably to help the Flite fit in better with the rest of the collection, they have made the Flite canopy even bigger for 2013. Woot! Woot! Size matters with a canopy, people! It’s a good size canopy with built in 45-SPF and a  darker mesh peek-a-boo window to see in at your little rider.

Bumbleride Flite 2013

WHEELS:

The Flite rolls on four sets of 5 1/2″ wheels and a dual front and rear suspension system that gives baby a smooth ride. Even though the front swivel wheels can be locked straight to handle grass and a bit bumpier terrain a little better, this is an umbrella stroller that is meant to perform best on smooth surfaces. The rear wheels have individual locks on each wheel to lock the stroller in place.

Bumbleride Flite 2013

When we travel, light strollers are our BFF. That’s why we love that the Flite is only 14 lbs, and with the carry handle and shoulder strap, it’s a great travel companion.

Bumbleride Flite 2013

The Flite has a two-handed fold that is rather easy to do. Pull up on the two release triggers just below each handlebar. Then lift up on the rear step with your foot to release the rear support bars, pop up that support bar between the handlebars and push it forward until the stroller folds down to the ground. We love that the Flite has an automatic lock to keep the stroller locked while transporting! The folded stroller is very compact and can fit in the tightest of trunks and spaces.

Bumbleride Flite 2013

While many other lightweight umbrella strollers don’t accommodate an infant car seat, the Flite accepts almost all infant car seats with the included car seat adapter to make it a lightweight travel system. It accepts Graco, Chicco, Britax, Peg Perego, Combi and Baby Trend infant car seats but check Bumbleride’s website just to make sure yours is compatible. NOTE: The car seat adapter must be removed to fold the stroller.

Overall, the Bumbleride Flite is a lightweight stroller that is great for travel and does everything but all-terrain and jogging. This year we love that they made the canopy bigger and the buckle harder to escape. If you are looking for a beautiful, lightweight, umbrella stroller that is stocked with style and features, then the Flite might be the stroller for you.

2013 Indie Twin review bumbleride best twin stroller

The Bumbleride Indie had a minor makeover for 2013. It hasn’t changed that much in a couple years, but this year is different, so we thought it was time for a new full review! First, we will highlight the changes and then we’ll get into the nitty-gritty.

2013 CHANGES:

NEW FABRICS: The entire Bumbleride collection will now come in the Natural fabric. That’s right, the “Movement” and the “Classic” are out and the eco-friendly fabrics are all in. We’re really happy with this change because we like the Natural fabrics. The interior of the stroller is made of a bamboo, nylon blend that will wick away moisture from the little rider’s body and the exterior fabric on the Natural Edition strollers is made of a recycled polyester blend.

NEW COLORS for 2013: Jet Black, Aquamarine, Cayenne Red, Fog Grey, Green Papyrus, and Lotus (pink/blue)

BUMPER BAR: Included Bumper Bar (adjusts down just for fold)

FOOTREST: New footrest and foot well making it better suited for larger toddlers and jogging.

CAR SEAT ADAPTER: Universal Car Seat Adapter Bar now included

NEW HARNESS: A new harness features a stronger center release button and 3 to 5 point breakaway shoulder straps which help with a faster connection and prevents entanglement.

IMPROVED PEEK-A-BOO WINDOW: Dark mesh peek-a-boo window

The Bumbleride Indie is one of our favorite all-terrain strollers. It combines sport with style and gives you all the features you need in an everyday stroller.

Let’s start with the new fabrics. The “Movement” and “Classic” fabrics of yesteryear are out and the Natural fabric is in. The Indie is only available in the eco-friendly fabrics that consist of a bamboo, nylon blend interior to wick away moisture from the little rider’s body and recycled polyester blend exterior.

SEAT:

The seat is roomy and accommodates up to 45 lbs. It measures 13″ wide, with a 19″ seat back and a measurement of 23″ from seat to canopy. The adjustable, padded 5-point harness has been modified for 2013 with a stronger center release button and 3 to 5 point breakaway shoulder straps which help with a faster connection and prevents entanglement. While the harness does “break away” (which can be annoying on some strollers!), we are happy that the Indie’s harness does stay clipped together when we want it to so that it doesn’t come apart every time we take our child out of the seat.

The seat reclines nearly flat with a one-hand strap system. (You need two hands to put the seat back up though!) If you raise up the leg rest, snap it to the seat fabric and recline the seat fully, you can create a bassinet-like environment for your newborn. Yes, this is a stroller you can use right home from the hospital.

Speaking of the leg rest, the Indie sports a new footrest and foot well making it better suited for larger toddlers and jogging. There is a easy-to-clean foot well that is 11″ from the seat (I call that the “leg drop measurement” in the video!) with an adjustable leg rest for the comfort of your little rider.

STORAGE:

Under the seat, the Indie has a very large, accessible basket to accommodate a bunch of baby essentials or a very large diaper bag. There is also a small zipper pocket on the back of the canopy and a bottle holder on the side of the handle.

HANDLE:

The adjustable handle is great for both short and tall parents. It adjusts from 25″ from ground to handle to 43″. Since it is a one-piece solid handlebar, it makes for easy one-hand maneuverability.

CANOPY:

We have always loved the Bumbleride canopy and we are still very happy with it. It’s a full-coverage, 45-SPF canopy that sports a new darker mesh peek-a-boo window.

WHEELS and FOLD:

The Indie’s three 12″ air-filled tires combined with the stroller suspension provide a very smooth ride for baby and a super easy push for mom. The front wheel is a 360 degree swivel wheel that has the ability to lock straight for rougher terrain. A brake bar locks the stroller into place easily with just one step.

The Indie folds in half, making transporting this stroller convenient regarding the size. There are three easy steps to folding the Indie. Fold down the baby bumper bar, lift two levers on the sides of the handlebar, push the handlebar forward and then pull up on the large strap that is behind the seat to fold the stroller. It basically folds in half. There are two manual locks on each side of the stroller that keep it closed and secure while folded. We aren’t going to lie though, we are hoping for an automatic lock for 2014!

ACCESSORIES:

The Indie comes standard now with the baby bumper bar and the universal car seat adapter that works with Chicco, Graco, Peg Perego, Britax, Combi and Baby Trend infant car seats. Check the Bumbleride website to make sure your seat is compatible.

There are other accessories sold separately for the Indie that include a footmuff/seat liner, travel bag, carrycot, rain shield, Parent Pack and Snack Pack.

As we expect from Bumbleride each year, there are new colors. The colors for 2013 are: Cayenne Red, Fog Grey, Jet Black, Papyrus Green, Aquamarine, Lotus Pink and Lotus Blue.

Overall, the Bumbleride Indie is a sporty alternative to the traditional 4-wheel stroller and has more convenience features than a jogging stroller. If you are looking for a beautiful, head-turning, all-terrain stroller friendly for everyday use, then the Indie might be the stroller for you.

The Must Have Stroller Accessory – The Shopping Mama

October 8th, 2012


The Must Have Stroller Accessory Bumbleride Parent Pack

Every once in a while we come across a baby or kid product that we simply can’t imagine life without. The Bumbleride Parent Pack is one of those products. I cannot remember how we used our strollers before we had the Parent Pack to hold and organize our things on the go.

We first told you about the Parent Pack last year after spying it at the ABC Kids Expo.

The Parent Pack is made of a durable fabric and attaches directly to your stroller – Bumbleride and beyond. Because the console is made of fabric, you can fold your stroller while it is still attached – you get the function without any hassle. The Parent Pack has two cup holders and a zippered pouch that is perfect for cell phone, keys and more. I’ve been walking through our village to pick up my daughter from preschool and then back across the village to meet my son at the school bus stop. I seriously cannot imagine doing that without my water bottle totally handy in the Parent Pack. I also love having my cell phone safe and easily accessible in the Parent Pack so I can play music or actually answer the phone before it goes to voice mail because I’m digging around a stroller basket or my diaper bag. Another great feature? This is a two-cup holder that doens’t add any width to your stroller. It’s particularly important for twin strollers, and, yes, this is compatible with the Bumbleride Indie Twin.

Don’t have a Bumbleride? Fear not. The Parent Pack attaches using velcro so the fit can be adjusted to fit most strollers. It’s on a Bumbleride Indie in the photo above, and here are some photos of us using the Parent Pack on other strollers.

                

Shop! The Bumbleride Parent Pack stroller console is $24.99. Trust us, this is money well spent to make your stroller more parent friendly and convenient.

Thanks to Bumbleride for providing a sample.
