Bumbleride Indie 2018 Stroller Review

The Bumbleride Indie 2018 is a 4th generation jogger with some minor improvements. It’s designed for active parents who enjoy light jogging and want an everyday stroller with the off-road ability with LUXURY features.

Indie is perfect for moms like me, who is not a serious jogger, but still wants to go for a jog once in a while. Since I am a huge Indie fan and thought the previous model was almost perfect, I was excited to see what improvements Bumbleride came up with.

For 2018 they only had 3 updates:

1) It has an updated UPF 45+ canopy that now sits higher on the frame and can accommodate a taller child. It still offers the same great coverage.

2) The second update made the fold a little easier with redesigned release triggers.

3) New storage pockets in the back of the seat where you can put your water bottle or other small essentials.

And of course they’ve added new colors. The new eco-friendly fabrics are made out of 100% recycled PET materials. Also, no harmful chemicals were used in the process.

Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller Review

bumbleride-speed-2016-13The Bumbleride has released a new jogging stroller called Speed. It’s a luxury jogging stroller designed for hardcore joggers.

It rolls on three large air-filled tires that together with all-wheel suspension can handle any kind of terrain. But, the best feature of Seed is a three-speed steering on the front wheel that allows you to choose between 360 degree swivel, locked forward, or 30 degree locked modes. This is a big plus since most joggers have only swivel and locked modes.

It also features: large canopy, large basket, easy one-step fold, deep recline, adjustable handle bar, and roomy seat. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 65 lbs (basically till college. LOL). This baby weighs only 24 lbs, which I think is pretty light for a hardcore jogger.

For 2016 Bumbleride has changed their fabrics for Speed and Indie models. Before they’ve used 14 recycled plastic bottles and now they are using 28. Their recycled bottles come from Taiwan which of course makes me wonder if there is a lack of recycled bottles in US. LOL. The fabric is a blend of 50% bamboo charcoal and 50% of recycled bottles. Despite the eco-friendly approach, the material is very nice and soft.

Bumbleride Indie 4 Stroller Review

bumbleride-indie4-2If you’ve been reading my blog, you know how much I love the Indie model. That is why I was so exited about release of the Indie 4. Some parents want to have four wheels instead of three because they feel that four wheels provide better stability. I think it’s matter of preference. In my opinion, four wheels ARE more stable and easier to navigate in tight spaces, but they weigh more and take up more space in your trunk.  So you have to see what’s more important for you the weight or the stability. Here is my full review of Indie model.

The Indie 4 model is designed for everyday use like going to the mall, running errands, walks at the park or a beach. It’s NOT a jogger unlike the Indie model, but has all-terrain wheels and comes with a matching BASSINET so you can use it from birth. I think Bumbleride is trying to create serious competition for popular UPPABaby Vista model which also has all-terrain tires and comes with a matching bassinet. You can also convert Indie 4 to a travel system by using included universal car seat adapter.

I was happy to see that Indie 4 has some of the same features as Indie like oversized canopy, adjustable leg rest, deep recline, nicely padded roomy seat, adjustable handle bar, 5-point harness, huge basket, storage pocket, and easy fold. The seat has a deep recline and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. This buggy weighs 22 lbs which is 2 lbs more than Indie model. The extra weight comes as a result of an extra wheel.

Bumbleride Indie Stroller Review

bumbleride_indie1Bumbleride Indie is my favorite all-terrain stroller. It was a big hit from the moment it was released. Indie is designed for active parents who enjoy light jogging and want an everyday stroller with the off-road ability and LUXURY features. This is perfect for moms like me, who is not a serious jogger, but still wants to lose that extra baby weight.

It has everything a girl can dream off! A huge canopy, adjustable foot rest, deep recline, roomy seat, large basket and light weight frame. That’s right, this jogging stroller weighs ONLY 20 lbs! The air-filled tires and rear suspension system provide exceptionally smooth ride. It glides with ease and can be pushed with one hand. The seat is made out of eco-friendly material that helps to regulate temperature and absorb moisture.

You can easily convert it to a travel system with the included car seat adapter or by purchasing a matching bassinet. The seat can also convert into a bassinet-like environment making if perfect for a newborn (you might not even need to get a bassinet). Bumper bar is also included in 2013 model. This stroller can be used from birth up to 45 lbs. If you have twins, it is not a problem. The double version is also available. If you are not into jogging  and would like to get an all-terrain stroller, check out Indie 4 model.

Bumbleride Flite Stroller Review

bumbleride_flite1Bumbleride Flite is an amazing umbrella stroller that weighs only 14 lbs, but has a lot of features of a regular stroller. That’s right! Even though it is an umbrella stroller, you get a large canopy, roomy seat, deep recline, all-wheel suspension, adjustable footrest, and an INCLUDED car seat adapter so you can convert it to a travel system. Not many umbrella strollers have such a deep recline (many don’t recline at all) and a very few can covert into a travel system. BTW, this is the lightest stroller in the Bumbleride collection.

The seat is made out of high quality eco-friendly material that is a blend of bamboo and nylon fabrics (it  feels expensive).It’s a very sturdy and stable stroller that is designed for urban lifestyle. You can take it to the mall, doctor’s office, or for a stroll around the neighborhood. For parents that travel a lot, this is one of the BEST strollers currently on the market.

While Flite will handle off-road terrain better than your usual umbrella stroller, it is NOT made for all-terrain. It has small rubber wheels that do better on flat surfaces. The all-wheel suspension system will absorb bumpy urban sidewalks with ease making it a smooth ride. Double option is NOT available for Flite.

I gave this stroller 5 out of 5 stars because it’s perfect! For once I don’t have anything bad to say. The basket is small, but I don’t think it can be any bigger without effecting the compact fold. it

Bumbleride Flyer Stroller Review

bumbleride_flyer13Bumbleride Flyer stroller is so popular because of its reversible handle bar that gives your child ability to face you or the world. Weighing 19 lb, this stroller is somewhere in between an umbrella stroller and a regular stroller.

The problem I have with it, is that there is a not enough storage and the wheels are too small for a regular stroller. At the same time, it is too heavy (19 lbs) and too big for an umbrella stroller. You really can’t carry it over the shoulder like you normally would with an umbrella stroller.

Flyer is designed for flat surfaces like mall, sidewalks, doctor’s office or airport. It is very difficult to push over uneven terrain like grass, gravel or mulch. This is definitely NOT all-terrain stroller.

It does have a lot of great features like large canopy, adjustable foot rest, roomy seat, and easy fold. But the main reason why people buy is the REVERSIBLE handle bar. For some people facing their child is the most important feature in the stroller. It’s a HUGE selling point, and they are willing to overlook the weight and small wheels. If you want a lighter stroller with a lot of features, I would suggest City Mini or Britax B-Agile since tehy weigh only 16 lbs. Bumbleride Indie is another great option. It weighs almost the same at 20 lbs, but is a jogging stroller that will go through anything no matter how rough the terrain gets.
