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.

Finding The Right Double Stroller – Guest Blog Post – Michael Underwood and Angellica Bell

August 19th, 2013
 

 

Finding the best double stroller
Before we had our first child, I decided I would be responsible for researching and buying all the necessary baby products and nursery furniture.  The first thing I sorted out was a buggy and I had no idea how many different varieties there were on the market. Anyway, after some extensive research and road testing, I finally selected the one I thought would be ideal.

Fast forward eighteen months and our second child is about to be born. I now have to venture into the world of the double buggy. At first, I was disappointed with the choice there was available, but one thing I knew for sure was I didn’t want one where the baby is seated underneath the older child. I understand this keeps the buggy narrow, but it just looks like you’re putting your baby in the shopping storage area. Taking this into account it meant I was looking for a side by side design. Some of them are way too big and would involve having to buy a new car just to fit in the boot. I was struggling to make a decision, as nothing seemed right.

A week or so later, my wife and I attended the Baby Show in London and this was the first time we saw the Bumbleride’s Indie Twin buggy. It caught my eye because it looked great; stylish, colourful and a decent size. I went straight over to the demo model, strapped my son into it and pushed it around the exhibition hall. It was sturdy without being too heavy, easy to manoeuvre and a comfortable ride. Also, as a dad, I didn’t feel self-conscious pushing it around because it’s easily one of the coolest buggies available. After that short demo my mind was made up and I got in touch with the company and got one on order.

When it arrived I immediately put it together in the front room and put my son into it. We were a couple of weeks away from the arrival of our second child, but I wanted to test drive it straightaway. I then panicked because I was convinced it wouldn’t fit through the doors in my house. I needn’t have worried as it fitted through perfectly, something that wouldn’t have happened with other double buggies. I couldn’t have been happier and my son loved riding around in it too. The real test will come when our daughter finally arrives.

Dusting off your stroller for summer?

July 19th, 2013
 

 

These simple tips can help keep your strolling experience fun and safe:

No matter what your stroller brand, always check for safety recalls. If you have an Indie or Indie Twin stroller manufactured from 2009 – 2011, be sure to contact us for your free retrofit kit. For more information: http://www.support.bumbleride.com/strollers/recall.php

 Before each use, always make sure your stroller is ready to go:

  • Safety buckles are working properly and straps have been adjusted to fit your baby. As your baby grows, straps will need to be lengthened.
  • Wheels are turning smoothly and are properly locked into their axles or front forks. Review your user instructions or feel free to contact us for product specific tips.
  • Dirt and grime can get into moving parts. Be sure to wipe away any sand or dust. This will help to protect your stroller.
  • Regularly check for loose rivets, loose screws and / or any broken parts. If you are not sure, give us a call or email a picture from your smart phone.
  • Squeaky stroller? After cleaning off any affected area, apply a silicon-based lubricant for better operation.
  • Fabric moldy after a winter in the garage? The removable fabric can be machine washed using cold water. Canopies can be spot washed.
  • Questions? That’s what we’re here for! Give us a call or an email at 1 800 530 3930 or info@bumbleride.com . Our San Diego based customer care team is awesome!

The Artists Behind Our Videos

May 22nd, 2013

The inspiration for our new Indie, Indie Twin and Flite videos came from the lifestyle and personality of our customers, our company and our products.

http://www.bumbleride.com/video/

Behind the video direction was our friend Phil Hamer, http://philhamer.com/ who has done some amazing work with DC, Quiksilver and other product brands.  He also spends much of his time in Africa with non-profits doing documentaries to help children in need. 

We also would like to highlight the great musicians that helped define some of the music diversity that we were aiming for and a special thanks to Steve Salett from The Poison Tree who asked for us to donate a stroller on his behalf.

Friday afternoons at the Bumbleride office have been designated as “My Project” time. My Project is a project of choice with no specific guidelines or restrictions. We wanted to tap into the creative minds of our team. Last week we met up to share our My Project ideas. The ideas varied- everything from vertical, organic gardens in our office to really amazing initiatives to support and give to those in need. There are also several new design ideas that we hope to share in the coming years. We followed up the presentations with street tacos and margaritas. Always a good time!
