LA Baby Show Nov. 5th & 6th – Bumbleride Test Drives, Product News & Giveaway – Join Us

August 31st, 2016

jamie thebabyguynyc

{TODAY is the last day for early bird pricing use code EARLYBIRD20}

In honor of the first-ever LA Baby Show coming up on November 5-6, we’re catching up with some of the leaders in the LA maternity and baby community.

Most parents today lead active lifestyles, exercising or jogging with their babies and children. Strollers need to keep up with the families that use them and Bumbleride offers eco-conscious strollers that move on any terrain.

We spoke with Ryan Willson, Marketing Manager at Bumbleride, to learn more.

For someone unfamiliar with Bumbleride, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

Bumbleride makes eco-conscious strollers for families to get out and do what they love, while doing our best to preserve the planet. We offer an all-terrain stroller, Indie, a jogging stroller, Speed and an all-terrain/jogging double stroller named Indie Twin.

What is the background of Bumbleride? When was it started and how has it evolved since then?

Bumbleride was founded in 2004 when co-founders Matt and Emily Reichardt were expecting their first child and were frustrated with the lack of stroller options at the time. They set out to create their own stroller that embraced their active lifestyle and was thoughtfully designed to ensure durability, safety and function. Thanks to a small loan from Matt’s grandparents, they ordered their first shipment from Taiwan. Today the strollers are still manufactured at the same family-run Taiwanese factory and sold in more than 250 stores in the US, and 18 countries including the Poland, Russia, Canada, and Australia.

What are the most popular and/or newest services and products from Bumbleride?

We are just about to start shipping our new 2016 Indie Twin double jogging stroller which has received many improvements thanks to our customers’ feedback. Some of these improvements include: an added front wheel suspension, larger front footwells for older children, a one-step fold, improved backrest adjuster, single auto lock, standing fold without handle damage, 100% recycled RPET fabrics and canopy pop-out extensions. We also just released our first dedicated jogging stroller named Speed. Speed is the only jogging stroller to feature three wheel lock modes including a partial swivel for jogging while maneuvering. Our Indie all terrain stroller line has been around since 2007 and updated many times based on parent feedback. Indie also received all of the improvements Indie Twin received.

What sets Bumbleride apart from other stroller and baby product companies on the market?

At Bumbleride, our aim is to get a little greener with everything we do. The textiles, aluminum and plastics that make up Bumbleride products are carefully chosen for durability, safety and function, but also their environmental impact. We believe a purpose-built product should be functional and intuitive but also make a positive impact on a family’s life and the planet we all share. Manufacturing can be a dirty business so we seek out suppliers that are innovating to save energy, conserve water and reduce pollution in landfills. Materials matter.

What can parents expect to see from Bumbleride at the LA Baby Show?

Parents can expect a friendly Bumbleride staffer to offer test drives and demos of our new Speed jogging stroller ($549), Indie all terrain stroller ($529) and Indie Twin double stroller ($739), all made with eco fabrics featuring recycled plastic bottles, and featuring Oeko-Tex and bluesign fabric certifications. All Bumbleride strollers offer a 3 year warranty, eco fabrics and a one-step, compact fold.

An Interview With Bumbleride CEO Matt Reichardt: Meet The Speed Jogging Stroller & More! | Spilling The beans Blog By Magic Beans

April 6th, 2016

An Interview With Bumbleride CEO Matt Reichardt: Meet The Speed Jogging Stroller & More!

1200x900_Speed_CampGreen

Excerpt from Spilling the beans blog by Magic Beans (an authorized Bumbleride retailer)-

“Since 2004, Bumbleride co-founders Matt and Emily Reichardt have been designing strollers “as gear, purpose-built to perform whether taking your little ones on a trail run or navigating the local farmers market.” This year’s new debuts are even more outdoorsy than ever: Bumbleride has just introduced their first designated running stroller, and some eco-friendly new fabrics, too. In this interview with Matt, we got the inside scoop on how they came up with these new advances, and how they’ll enhance your life as an active parent.

Want to see the Speed and the rest of the Bumbleride collection in person (and chat with the Bumbleride crew about why their strollers are so cool)? They’ll be at Drool Baby Expo tomorrow, April 7 – if you don’t have your tickets, get them now!

 

Q: So, the marquee event for Bumbleride this year appears to be the Speed Jogging Stroller! We’re so excited to add it to our selection. I know that the Indie wasn’t designed as a jogger but was often used as one – how does the Speed improve on Indie for running parents?  
I think they definitely serve different needs, Indie has always been a great option for urban strolling, all-terrain, and light jogging.  For running parents moving at a faster pace, Speed has larger 16” back wheels for better control, a longer wheel base for better stability, and the new Speed 3 steering system, which gives more options on different terrains.

 

Q: The central feature of the Speed is the 3-speed steering system – can you tell me a bit about how this idea was developed, how it works, and why it will be terrific for parents?  

The idea was developed from observations of how parents jog with strollers and from feedback from our customers.  Basically there are three scenarios runners find themselves in:  1. Running at a fast pace on open road, boardwalk or somewhere that you don’t really need to steer.   2. Jogging anywhere else whether it be a park, trail, urban community where turning is required.  3. Everyday use walking where 360 degree swiveling is preferred.  The problem that we found for parents is that a fixed wheel option is very limiting and not always convenient, and the swiveling option is not safe for jogging.

In response to this issue, the Speed 3 steering has 3 positions: fully locked with tracking for open road running,  a 30 degree swivel, and a 360 degree swivel.  The 30 degree swivel addresses the problem for joggers, allowing sufficient turning radius to steer while jogging but prevents the wheel from rotating past 45 degrees where the stroller can become unstable. It’s much like the way the steering is restricted on toddler balance bikes!

 

Q: What kind of family do you picture using the Speed stroller, and in what environments?  

I would say families where either one or both parents are joggers, or like to get out on walks for exercise.  Speed is designed for all terrain, so everything from city urban living to rural terrain.  Because of its versatility, it also can be the only stroller an active family needs.

 

Q: What kind of response have you gotten about the Speed stroller so far?  

I think a lot of our customers see it as an obvious addition to Bumbleride’s line up, and a much needed category.  We have also seen excitement around the Speed 3 steering and our fabric story.”…..
