BOB Motion vs Britax B-Agile Strollers Comparison

britax_b_agile13I have been getting a lot of emails asking what stroller is better BOB Motion or Britax B-Agile, and today I want to post a side-by-side comparison for you. BOB Motion is the newest addition to the BOB line of strollers. It’s a lightweight compact stroller that is designed for everyday use. The 4 air-filled tires and all-wheel suspension provide a smooth ride over rough terrain. BOB Motion is full of great features like huge canopy, roomy seat, adjustable handle bar and one hand fold. All these goodness weighs 23 lbs and costs around $349. Here is detailed review of the BOB Motion.

The Britax B-Agile is one of the most popular strollers on the market. It’s light, compact, and has one-hand fold. It rolls on three rubber wheels that are designed for flat surfaces and not for the rough terrain. B-Agile features roomy seat, huge canopy, all-wheel suspension, and flip-flop friendly brake. All these goodness costs around $250 and weighs only 16.5 lbs. Here is detailed review of Britax B-Agile.

Side-by-Side Comparison

-Canopy. The B-Agile has bigger canopy that goes all the way down  to the bumper bar complete shading your child. The Motion has also a large canopy with a dark mesh peekaboo window. The Motion’s peekaboo window is larger than on B-Agile. Although both strollers have a great canopy,I think I will give canopy to B-Agile.

-Handle Bar. The handle bar is better on Motion model since it’s adjustable and goes from 32″ to 42″, while B-Agile has non-adjustable handle bar located 40″ from the ground.

-Basket. Both strollers have a medium size basket, but I like B-Agile more because it has elastic sides making it easier to access things from the sides.

-Seat. Both strollers have roomy padded seat with one-hand strap recline system. I like that B-Agile has an insert for extra support for a newborn. I am giving seat to B-Agile.

-5 point harness. They both have 5 point padded harness with a round center release button.

-Mesh window. Both strollers have a large mesh window that you can see once you reclined the seat. It provides extra air circulation but can be covered if the weather gets chilly.

-Wheels. Motion rolls on 4 air-filled wheels while B-Agile has three rubber wheels. As you’ve probably guessed, Motion has better wheels that can easily tackle all-terrain. Wheels on B-Agile are designed for flat surfaces in an urban environment.

-Weight. The main selling point of the B-Agile is it’s weight, ONLY 16.5 lbs! It’s a lightweight stroller that can easily compete with umbrella strollers. The Motion weighs 23 lbs which is an average weight of a full size stroller.

-Price. The Motion costs about $350, while B-Agile is more affordable and can be purchased at $250.

As you can see, the main differences between these two are the wheels, price, and weight. If you want all-terrain stroller that is heavier and more expensive, you should go with Motion. But if the lightweight is more important for you than all-terrain tires, than B-Agile is the stroller for you.
