Leader Bikes Exhibition

December 16th, 2013

Leader Bicycle Exhibition Chrome Digital

San Diego based Leader Bikes was exhibiting a few of their new track and fixed gear street bikes next door to Bumbleride offices on Saturday night. The event was put on by Adidas, Red Bull and Chrome Digital who showcased a photography exhibit of racers from the Morley Field Velodrome. Our design team definitely has a bike obsession, and the vintage 1960′s Italian made track bike on exhibition was definitely a favorite.

2013 ABC Kids Expo

October 29th, 2013

        ABC Expo Bumbleride Booth

Every year we look forward to attending the ABC Kids Expo as a chance to connect with our customers face to face, see friends from the industry and have a little fun in Vegas.  It was particularly exciting for us this year as we launched 3 new products, Indie 4, Mini Board and Diaper Bag.  We were thrilled at the reaction to our launch of Indie 4. Retailers, media, and customers alike raved about the rugged all-terrain features coupled with the compact, urban style and colors of Indie 4. Our Mini Board,  a really cool wood ride along board that fits all Indie models is finally ready and will start shipping in the next few weeks.  The Diaper Bag, available and now shipping comes in all Bumbleride colors and can be used over the shoulder or on the stroller.  We have a lot of exciting things planned in the coming months and are really looking forward to an amazing 2014!

Kind + Jugend 2013 – Indie 4 Debut

October 7th, 2013
 

 

The team just returned from the exciting Kind and Jugend show. Although this was the fifth year that Bumbleride attended the show in Cologne, Germany, it was the first time that we partnered with the German distributor, Pamper 24. Pamper 24 is one of our newest partners in the International market with customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are really excited to begin to reach this new market and connect with retailers who share our core company vision for providing parents with great mobility solutions in a very personal way! For those of you who were wondering where we currently sell internationally, Bumbleride has distribution into 17 countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greenland, the United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.

Kind and Jugend Booth Bumbleride 2013 New

In addition to reconnecting with our international distributors, Bumbleride also introduced three new products to the Bumbleride line: the Mini Board (giving toddlers a free ride behind Indie, Indie 4 and Indie Twin strollers) , a line of modern and functional diaper bags in colors that match our strollers (same recycled fabric), and the brand new all terrain stroller, Indie 4.

Indie 4 is the third stroller in the very popular Indie line. It possesses all of the same great qualities of Indie (rugged pneumatic tires, UV recycled fabric, welded aluminum chassis, infinity recline, adjustable handle, etc), but also boasts a new 4 wheel design with all wheel suspension. Indie 4 is perfect for the family that is looking for a stroller that bridges the gap between urban and off-road terrains. It can take you seamlessly from a cramped subway station to a forest path without skipping a beat. Indie 4’s seat can be converted to an infant ready position or it can easily be paired with a Bumbleride carrycot or carseat adapter to take your child from newborn to up to 50lbs. It is also compatible with most Bumbleride accessories. Indie 4 will be available in early 2014. Indie 4 and the entire Bumbleride stroller line continue to surprise our European friends with their super lightweight design, compact fold, and eco-friendly fabrics.

Kind and Jugend New Bumbleride Stroller Indie 4

The team had a lot of fun at the show and is excited about the possibility of expanding distribution into France, Spain, Italy and beyond in 2014!

Of course, we didn’t travel over 5,000 miles and forget to take in the beautiful sites around Germany. European cities remind us of the longevity of good design: both in outward appearance as well as in their functional layout.

We just finished day two of the Kind + Jugend trade show in Cologne, Germany. The European market is responding very well to some of the exciting additions we’ve made this year. The Maxi Cosi Adapters and latching Carrycots are a must-have for Europe and we’re getting great reactions to our new adapters for Indie and Indie Twin. The new Movement and Natural Editions have been getting a lot of buzz as well as our new turquoise color launching later this year. We are looking forward to launching Bumbleride in Europe in 2012.
