The Bumbleride is a great option for those looking for an everyday stroller designed for active families. It is versatile in that it can be used from birth to infancy and its air-filled tires and full suspension provide a comfortable ride no matter where you explore. I tested Sea Glass, which is a beautiful blue color, and from the moment I put it together I knew I would like it.
One of the best features of this stroller is that it is ready for babies without tether. From birth, the Indie seat can be easily converted to baby mode with just a few clicks. I haven’t used this feature, but looking at the directions I can see it’s very easy to transition. It has a five point safety harness with shoulder pads providing a safe and comfortable ride for my son. As for other features, the canopy is UPF 45+ with a pop-out extension for extra coverage and air vents. The cargo basket is large and comes with storage for an air pump, which was also included. My husband was very impressed with the air pump and it earned points in his book.
The stroller itself was very light at just 24 pounds and compact when folded. Even for its light weight, it still felt durable when you used it for walks and jogging. The 12-inch air-filled tires feature full suspension and a 360-degree swivel front wheel with in-line locking option for off-roading. I liked the way the handlebars are adjustable and include a safety strap. I have used this stroller a lot on my trips to the beach and it was always smooth even on the sand. Bumbleride also offers the ability to add optional accessories purchased separately, such as car seat adapters, carrycot, parent pack, mini-board, footmuff, rain cover, seat liner and bag. of travel.
Of all the jogging strollers I tested, this was the only one that featured an eco-friendly fabric (100% recycled, Pet and Oeko-Tex certified) and untreated, Oeko-certified polyester padding. Tex. Twenty-five percent of the plastic frame components come from ocean plastics. If you are someone who is aware of durability, I recommend that you check out this stroller.
As for the negatives, the seat fabric and canopy are machine washable, but I got the impression, based on the stroller color and material, that it would be difficult to remove the stains and that they could be more visible. I also had a hard time using the one-handed backrest tilt when my son was napping. While I thought it was durable for most of our trips using it, I felt it was a bit bumpy in some of the more rugged terrain compared to other strollers I have tested.
