Best Strollers of 2016 – Babble

Best Single Jogging Stroller: Bumbleride Indie

Let me just be super upfront with the fact that I am not a runner. I did not put the joggers through terribly rigorous running programs, but for science (okay, Babble), I put on running shoes, loaded up a child and went for a run.

Pros: As mentioned with the previous Bumbleride stroller, these strollers are gorgeous and the material is very high quality. The front tire can be locked or left to swivel and it can be used essentially from birth because of the full recline and full footrest. Like the other Bumblerides, the fabric is made of half bamboo and half recycled plastic bottles, so in addition to being gorgeous, it’s also eco conscious. The tires are air filled and it makes the drive super smooth.

Cons: I am not fond of the seat recline adjustment (you have to pinch a tab and then pull a harness string) and it’s tough to bring it back to upright with the child in the seat. Otherwise, I found this to be a great jogging stroller, even for a novice jogger.

Runner-Up Best All-Around Single Stroller: Bumbleride Indie 4

If I was giving an award for the prettiest stroller, this would be it, without question. The color palette on all the Bumbleride strollers is absolutely gorgeous and the strollers get a lot of attention. I mean this literally — people stopped me on the street to ask what kind of stroller it was and to compliment the colors.

Pros: Beyond being eye-appealing, the Indie 4 has a generous sized basket and high quality tires that create a very smooth drive on a variety of different surfaces. The fabric is made of 50% bamboo and 50% recycled bottles, making it beautiful and eco-friendly. Once folded, the Indie 4 is very compact and can stand up for storage. The materials, especially the fabric seats and canopy, are very high quality. It just has the look of a very nice, well made stroller.

Cons: The fold is a little more complicated than other strollers in this same class, and the set up was a bit less straightforward than some others.

Competitor Running – Gear We Love: July – Speed Jogging Stroller

August 2nd, 2016

CompetitorMagazine

SPEED_Gray

From a roller made out of rope to speedy strollers, the editors share their favorite gear picks of the month:

“This new jogging stroller has about everything one could possibly want or need to go running with your kid. It folds and unfolds easily, has a great suspension, plenty of pockets and storage, a generous canopy that unfolds to block out the sun from almost any angle and time of day, a magnetic peekaboo window to keep a quick eye on your passenger, a breakaway seatbelt design that allows quick exits when meltdowns happen, water-bottle holders and thoughtful touches like a concealed, compact air pump that’s there if you need it. Maybe the coolest feature, though, is in the front fork. You can make it swivel fully, or swivel only partially so that it doesn’t dangerously spin out—or, it can lock forward for when you’re running faster speeds. And while other fixed-front-wheel jogging strollers will frustratingly veer left or right, this stroller’s fork has a micro-adjustment feature to make it roll straight and true with the turn of a knob. It rides solidly and smoothly, and is a rare pleasure to run with among jogging strollers. The only thing conspicuously absent is a handbrake; Bumbleride says it was kept off in order to save weight.” —Adam Elder, managing editor

Speed Jogging Stroller Review – Lucie’s List

June 9th, 2016

“Bumbleride is one of those companies that I just like.

Their mission is to bring beautiful, highly functional, well-made and eco-friendly strollers to the world. They are not a corporate giant, like most, and they have amazing customer service.

Unlike some brands that claim to be eco-friendly (ahem, Orbit), Bumbleride strollers actually are. They are PVC & phthalate free with no fire retardants and no polyurethane foam. Their fabric supplier is Oeko-Tex certified & a bluesign partner.

Their bread and butter, the Bumbleride Indie, has long been a cult favorite in the all-terrain stroller world. The Speed was introduced in March of this year (2016) to serve the population of joggers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts who need a little more.

Their strollers are little pricier than most, but built to last.

Bumbleride strollers are constructed of lightweight yet heavy-duty aluminum. Yes, you can go buy a Baby Trend or a Schwinn for half the price — and they will rust out and end up in the landfill in a few years. With a higher-quality stroller like this, you can re-sell it (later on) for a high value knowing it will last for a very long time.

What sets the Speed jogging stroller apart from other joggers like BOB is a stylish, upmarket look that isn’t purely sporty. They are currently offering 4 patterns that are all subtle and sophisticated….Read more” – Meg Collins, Lucie’s List

Speed Jogging Stroller Review & Video – PishPoshBaby.com

We’ve got the need… for SPEED! The 2016 Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller from Bumbleride is perfection. It is durable enough to take on miles of trail running but comfy enough to be the only stroller you’ll ever need!
IMG_9605-e1464716866898-225x300
The most noteworthy feature is the Speed3 Steering. Most jogging strollers have two steering options; the front wheel fixed straight for long distance running, or a full 360 swivel capability for everyday use. Bumbleride realized that something was missing – an in between option! The Speed has a third setting that allows a 30 degree swivel on the front wheel. This is a perfect option for jogging curvy trails or neighborhood streets where you still need some turning allowance. The 30 degree limit is perfect for gentle turns but still sturdy enough at faster speeds. This Speed3 technology is only available on the Bumbleride Speed stroller. It truly allows your family to choose the pace!

IMG_9852-e1464716844389-225x300
The Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller is available now on PishPoshBaby.com in four stylish color options for $549 (FREE shipping) and includes the air pump, bumper bar and even a cute bell. Along with all of this, you get Bumbleride’s impeccable customer service and 3 year warranty. The Speed is an excellent choice for your family and will last for many years.

Thanks for your review Lindsey and Pish Posh Baby!

TheBabyGuyNYC Speed Stroller Review and Feature Video

May 18th, 2016

TheBabyGuyNYClogo

“Meet the Bumbleride Speed.

This is the first performance jogger from bumbleride, and we’ve had one for a few weeks in Denver. Big fans. And I’m not shocked because I am a huge fan of bumbleride.
The fabric is made from recycled water bottles, the stroller is PVC-free, it’s compatible with infant car seats, and holds 65 pounds. It pushes like a dream — much like all other bumbleride all-terrain strollers. I made this quick little video at ABC in Tampa to show you guys a few of the features.”- Jamie Grayson

Tiny Travels – La Jolla, CA – Chrissy Powers & Isobel Benesch

May 5th, 2016

We’ve partnered with Chrissy Powers and Isobel Benesch from belandbeau.com on a Tiny Travels series starting in La Jolla, CA. Follow their local travels and helpful tips! Enter to win your own Indie in their giveaway here, https://www.instagram.com/p/BE9Qim2Tg5f/?taken-by=chrissyjpowers. Ends 5/9.

“Welcome to Tiny Travels! I’m so excited about this new series because it combines two things I’m very passionate about: motherhood and travel. Before children I traveled all over; traveling opened the world up to me in a way I never knew existed. Relishing in the beauty of new places and cultures is something I want to pass on to my sons. I know traveling and children don’t always go together…I felt landlocked after I had my first son Waylon. However, once I started to put my cares aside (like how I look in public when he melts down…the fear of traffic…etc), I began to have fun no matter how challenging it was. My friend Isobel from belandbeau.com and I bonded over our love for travel and exploring with our boys; it really was only a matter of time before we teamed up.

Our hope is that Tiny Travels inspires you to see the world, explore your backyard, city or town and enjoy new experiences with your children no matter how hectic it may be. “- Chrissy and Isobel

Where They Went:

  • Juice Crafters
  • Tide Pools
  • Cuvier Park
  • The Children’s Pool
  • The Cave Store
  • Sunny Jim’s Cave

La Jolla Travel Tips:

Parking can be tough so find a spot and then bring your stroller/scooter/carrier…. If you walk all the way along the coast from the Tide Pools to the Cave Store it can be a long walk for little ones so make sure to bring snacks.

Places to Eat:

Cuvier Park and Ellen Browning Scripps are great picnic spots along the ocean. If you want to grab a bite to eat in town, we recommend Burger Lounge or Puesta.

Also Check Out:

  • Fly at Kite at Ellen Browning Scripps park
  • Bark at the Sea Lions at La Jolla Cove
  • Museum of Contemporary Art
