My Baby Stuff – The Bumbleride Flite : a fantastic travel stroller – Video Review from Hawaii

April 11th, 2014


MyBabyStuff Blog

My sister has always been a big proponent of Bumbleride.  I never thought one way or another because I didn’t get a Bumbleride as my ‘main’ stroller and well before now, it’s not like I had tried a bunch of strollers!  (My primary stroller is a running stroller as I’m a bit of a runner…) But… my thoughts certainly changed when I had the chance to review the Bumbleride FliteBumbleride’s umbrella stroller.

Even before I had my little girl, people kept telling me that I’ll need another, lighter stroller other than my running stroller to run errands and of course, for travel.  I actually kind of shrugged off that advice cause I figured the stroller I had was just fine.  Well, it was, until I received the Flite, which is a fraction of the weight of my running stroller… I’ve pulled muscles in my back and neck repeatedly lugging my running stroller in and out of my trunk just to run a few errands.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my running stroller but it’s not like I need to use it for all my little errands around town.

The Bumbleride Flite is a whopping 14lbs (compared to my running stroller which is in the mid-to-high 20′s).  It folds up really compactly and has a carry handle which makes it easily portable.  When you receive it, it’s super easy to assemble – all you have to do is click in the wheels and the canopy and voila!  You’re set.

It has impressive features for what I always considered “just” a travel (or umbrella) stroller.  This is not “just” a travel/umbrella stroller…

Main Features:

  • It has a great 5-point harness
  • an adjustable footrest
  • an almost fully reclining seat (awesome for napping on the go!) and
  • an SPF 45 canopy (such a bonus… especially if you’re travelling somewhere sunny and warm)
  • The exterior fabric is made of 50% recycle PET and the interior fabric is made of 50% bamboo charcoal.
  • It has front and rear wheel suspension.
  • Includes a universal car seat adaptor

I know these are things that maybe most of us moms don’t really consider or think of… but when you’re pushing around your little one up to the toddler years, it makes a big difference.  The stroller rolls really well.  It feels super durable – not flimsy at all.

Some of my favourite features include the following:

  • the weight of the stroller
  • the reclining seat
  • the big canopy with SPF protection
  • thick-padded handles
  • good size basket

The Bumbleride Flite folds up easily and was super light to lug around!  I think I napped my baby in the stroller 75% of the time, so the reclining seat was a must.  I’ve seen lots of other travel strollers where the seats don’t recline, I’m really really glad that this one did.

The canopy is amazing, we would just wrap a muslin blanket around to give her full coverage for naps and we were set.  Another thing that a mom or dad may not think of when purchasing a stroller are the handles.  The handles on the Flite are padded really nicely – and you can tell that the foam they are padded with are serious quality.  I don’t expect to see any wear and tear in that department anytime soon.  As a matter of fact, my sister has the same travel stroller from 2010 and her handles are in top shape.

Lastly the basket under the stroller was very helpful – from holding my water bottles, to my sunscreen, so some personal items and even a bag at one point… it was useful to have the basket.

I would recommend the Flite to my friends who are looking for a compact travel stroller. The Flite retails for $269.99. It’s available on the Bumbleride website and at specialty stores across Canada and the US.

Babyology – Our Favourite Brands Spotlight: Bumbleride – Australia

bumbleride 9 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

Ready for the pram that has wowed parents in Europe and America? Let us introduce you toBumbleride, the ‘baby mobility’ brand that’s delivering all the off-road ability of a multi-terrain stroller with the lean manoeuvrability of an urban jogger.

bumbleride 11 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

So exactly how is a Bumbleride pram different from the rest? Take a peek at the Bumbleride Indie – it’s not your average jogging, all-terrain stroller. Of course, all the standard features you would expect are there – fully swivelling front wheel with a forward facing lock position, brilliant suspension, a height-adjustable handle, a multi-adjustable reclining backrest suitable for newborns and toddlers, and accessories such as a rain cover, run strap and removable cup holder. But let’s get down to the nitty-gritty because it’s in the details that you will find Bumbleride really measures up.

bumbleride 10 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

The Bumbleride Indie is incredibly compact and weighs a tiny nine kilograms (a cinch to lift into the car boot). And whilst it may be light, it’s big on extras, such as the extra-large cargo basket and the extra-large sun canopy. Optional extras include a carry cot, footmuff, Maxi Cosi carseat adaptor and a travel bag (brilliant if you are taking your pram with you on holiday). My favourite extra? The Snack Pack. A little bit of clip-on genius for the bumper bar – it’s essentially a built-in lunch box and includes compartments, a zip closure and is easy to clean.

Importantly, Bumbleride have gone the extra mile in creating fabrics that are best for your baby and the environment. Every Bumbleride pram is made with fifty per cent recycled PET exterior fabric (yes, recycled bottles!) and fifty per cent bamboo charcoal interior fabric. The exterior fabric is durable and will stay vibrant and the bamboo interior has excellent natural qualities like moisture absorption, temperature regulation, helps to prohibit bacterial growth, and is also soft and durable.

For twice the ride, check out the Indie Twin. Like the Indie, the Indie Twin is compact, it weighs just fifteen kilograms and has all the functional features and extras of the single. Notably, two Maxi Cosi carseat adaptors can be used with  the Indie Twin in a stepped configuration.

bumbleride 6 Our favourite brands   spotlight on Bumbleride

Bumbleride prams are available in four colours – aquamarine, red, black or fog grey (with a fab red hood lining). The Indie is priced at RRP $699.95 and the Indie Twin is RRP $899.95.

Let’s Talk Baby Gear! – Bumbleride Indie Final Review – United Kingdom

March 11th, 2014
 

I’ve been testing the Bumbleride Indie for the past few months and here’s my final review of it.

 First I must say that out of the 13 pushchairs that we’ve had here thus far, the Indie is THE BEST and the easiest to push of them all!!!
 
I will start the review with the cons since there aren’t many..
1. The recline. The strap recline, as is usual with this type of mechanism, is a little hard to use when adjusting the seat from flat to upright.
2. No peak-a-boo window. There’s a mesh opening on the top of the canopy but you can’t see the child through it.
3. Still trying to think of more cons but nothing comes to mind :)
 
Now for the pros :)
1. The looks. The Indie looks good, doesn’t it? It feels at home in the middle of a busy shopping centre/high street and in the middle of a field!
2. The wheels. The Indie rolls on 12 inch air-filled tyres that are by far the best I’ve seen on a pushchair!
3. The seat. The seat unit is huge and extremely comfortable according to my son. I also love that the seat has an adjustable leg rest. The backrest is very well supported (something that I always look for in a pushchair). The harness is easy to adjust and will suit a small baby just as well as an older toddler.
4. The canopy. The hood is large on it’s own but it can be moved even further forward to shade the child in the summer.
5. The shopping basket. By far the biggest I’ve seen on an off-roader and very easy to access (not easy enough for things to fall out though!).
6. The handlebar. The handlebar is adjustable and can be locked in 1 of 5 positions to suit parents of all heights. What I particularly like about the handlebar is its shape – it’s very ergonomic. The foam it’s made of is very durable and has a nice feel to it.
7. The fold. The Indie folds very easily and to a really compact size! 
8. The weight. The Indie weighs an incredible 9kg! That’s very light for a full size pushchair! At the same time the Indie remains very sturdy. Unlike other 3-wheelers I’ve never had to stop the Indie from tipping sideways on a slope! 
9. The cup holder. Yes, I know it’s sad but I do love a good cup holder and I like it even more when it’s included with the pushchair!
10. It comes in a double! Check out the amazing Bumbleride Indie Twin – it’s double the fun!
