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

August 31st, 2016

{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.

I Tried Bumbleride’s First Running Stroller And It’s Winning – Women’s Running Magazine

August 30th, 2016

Women's Running Magazine

Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller Review Women's Running Magazine

{This is an excerpt from Women’s Running Magazine’s Speed Review}

Bumbleride, a stroller company started in 2004, recently debuted its first dedicated running stroller, Speed ($549, bumbleride.com). I tested the stroller on runs with my 2-year-old son (about 30 pounds) on flat and hilly paved streets and one trail to evaluate Speed’s design, features and performance.

Design

The stroller features “Speed3 steering,” which includes three steering modes for different paces—the front wheel locked for running, locked at 30 degrees for jogging, and unlocked 360-degree movement for walking. Though I personally prefer to run with the front wheel unlocked or just partially locked, it was easy to transition between steering modes.

Features…..

Performance

The sturdy 16-inch rear wheels (air pump is included) and lightweight aluminum frame (24 pounds) made for a smooth ride that was a dream to push, even one-handed or up hills. The stroller handled effortlessly over different terrains and didn’t cause any complaints from my son. I have a tendency to use my jogging strollers for everyday walks or errands too, and the Speed transitioned perfectly. With the front wheel unlocked it swiveled incredibly smoothly and steered well around a crowded outdoor event, and it was narrow enough to fit down store aisles.

Summary

Overall, Speed is a fantastic running stroller. It is an investment, but it is clearly designed to meet the needs of runners, parents and their kids. It was one of the easiest strollers to push that I’ve run with and was a truly smooth ride for both me and my son. Highly recommend!

Best Strollers of 2016 – Babble

August 23rd, 2016

BabbleBest

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

LuciesList-logo
Oscar-Bumbleride-Speed- Lucies-List
“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
