Crocodile Baby Stores – Why We Chose Bumbleride Strollers

Why we chose Bumbleride Strollers for Crocodile Baby

We are now available at Crocodile Baby with stores in BC, Canada. They recently wrote a great blogpost about why they chose Bumbleride strollers. This is an excerpt from that blogpost.

“We are very picky about what strollers we sell. Every one of them has to have great maneuverability, great durability, and be backed by great after sales service from the manufacturer. We have just added Bumbleride to our list, with the Indie, the Indie twin and, coming soon, the Speed a lovely jogging specialty stroller. Here are several reasons why we have chosen this manufacturer:

The Air is Guaranteed.

Bumbleride is the only stroller company that provides a 1 year warranty on the inner tubes and tires on its strollers.

Green Fabric.

The fabric is made of recycled PET bottles and from bamboo based fabric…

A Lighter Stroller

The Bumbleride Indie is 25% lighter than its “active stroller” competitors. I  know this because I took my trusty Luggage Buddy scale and picked up each of our strollers on display (pictured above). While my device may be off as to the true weight, the relative weights of strollers is the right way to consider the “How heavy is the stroller?” question….

Made in Taiwan

Bumbleride’s factory is in Taiwan, not China. This is not a really big deal but it is nice to know the strollers are made in a smaller, family-owned factory with a real interest in making high quality products….

Getting Even Greener

In early 2016, Bumbleride will launch its new running stroller the “Speed”. Coincident with that, all of their strollers will use fabrics that have drastically reduced water consumption during the production process while improving the colour fastness. The process creates an 84% energy savings which results in 67% less CO2 emissions. How is this done? I understand it is due to the process dyeing the thread before it is made into fabric, much like the Crypton process waterproofs Clek seat fabrics. Is this a big deal?…

Safety and Health

The fabrics used in all Bumbleride stroller are Oeko Tex certified, which means they have been tested for 110 toxic substances and none have been found….”

BUMBLERIDE REVEALS SPEED RUNNING STROLLER AT ABC KIDS EXPO

Environmentally-Friendly Company Unveiling New Products and Innovations

October 18, 2015 (San Diego, California) – Attendees of this year’s ABC Kids Expo are racing to the Bumbleride booth for a glimpse of the company’s highly-anticipated running stroller, the latest addition to their family of high-performance, environmentally-conscious strollers.

The first designated running stroller to join the Bumbleride family, Speed is designed to perform, no matter the athletic adventure. Totally versatile, Speed features Bumbleride’s new Speed3 steering which includes the following 3 modes:

1: Locked for running or training
2: 30-degree swivel for jogging or all terrain
3: Full 360-degree swivel for the city

Speed also includes all air filled tires (16” rear, 12” front) for maximum performance, comfort, and convenience, and an all-wheel suspension for the easiest push in its class. Weighing in at 23.5 pounds (including wheels and canopy), Speed measures 49”L x 25”W x 39.5”H when standing and 33”L x 25”W x 15.5”H when folded. A 20.5”L x 14”W backrest, 10”L x 14”W seat, and 13”L x 13”W foot well support kids safely and comfortably for years, and, with a handle-height range of 33.5”-44”H, Speed can be configured for the ergonomic comfort of almost any parent, as well.

In addition to the launch of Speed, visitors to Bumbleride’s ABC booth will also go ga-ga for best-selling strollers Indie and Indie Twin, all grown up with new-for-2016 updates. New features include a patent-pending hinge with 1-step fold system, single-lever recline, and redesigned handle; all new colors and fabrics; and auto locks. Every parent’s favorite stroller also includes updated front-wheel suspension for the smoothest push on the market, a new canopy design with pop-out extension and zip-off panel, and an included air pump.

Renowned for their unique, on-trend color palette, Bumbleride will also reveal new-for-2016 colorways, including a specialty retail exclusive color, at the ABC show. New colors include:

Matte Black – All black fabric and frame
Dawn Grey – Grey with mint canopy lining
Tourmaline – All dusty turquoise
Red Sand – Red with accent colour
Camp Green – Olive green with accent colour
Maritime Blue – Navy blue

Ever committed to reducing the environmental impact of their manufacturing processes, Bumbleride has also announced a change in fabrics. Beginning in 2016, fabrics will feature a combination of Solution dyed polyester- a process that saves water and energy while improving a fabric’s fade resistance and rPET- clean, recycled plastic bottles. Bumbleride’s fabric is OEKO-TEX and Bluesign certified, ensuring the elimination of harsh chemical substances, the conservation of valuable resources, and minimal environmental impact.

Now available in 19 countries, brand-new Speed and updated versions of Indie, and Indie Twin will be available in Spring 2016. Visit the proud parents at Bumbleride and view their newest additions at booth #6139 at the ABC Kids Expo October 18-21 in Las Vegas, NV.

Best Buggy UK – Indie 4 All Terrain Stroller Review – 4.5 of 5 stars

Best Buggy UK – Indie 4 All Terrain Stroller Review – 4.5 of 5 stars

Best Buggy UK recently tested our Indie 4, this is an excerpt from their review. Thank you Best Buggy for the review!

“We have been putting the Bumbleride Indie 4 stroller through it’s paces for the last few months here at Best Buggy HQ. We have previously tested the Bumbleride Indie 3 and the Indie Twin, so it was a pleasure to have another Bumbleride here back here for testing.

First Impressions
Bumbleride is really a name you can trust in the pushchair industry. The first impression of the Bumbleride pushchairs is always of quality. The build is sturdy and the aluminum chassis looks smart. The attention to detail and finish is good. The fabrics are strong and hard wearing, as well as looking great. The seat is well padded and the hood is lined. We especially love the 4 all terrain air tyres. The quality of the construction is what sets a good pushchair apart from the competition, and the Bumblerides certainly do stand out. There are 8 glorious colours. We have the Aquamarine and it is stunning! All round the Indie 4 looks great!

Child Comfort and Seating Positions
The Bumbleride Indie is suitable from birth to 25kgs. Although Master BB is well under the upper weight limit, we were unsure whether 105cms tall, 5 year old Master BB would fit in the Indie 4….

Harness and Bumper Bar
We love the Bumbleride Indie 4′s harness. There is plenty of space for even Master BB aged 5, whilst it can easily be reduced down for a small baby…

Storage
We have a huge confession to make. Mr BB decided to build the Indie 4 without me. He fitted the basket incorrectly at the rear. Unfortunately by the time we realised the basket was wrong (thanks to an eagle eyed BB Facebook reader), we had already taken the main photoset – the basket fits around the rear bar. We have retaken a few photos to show how the basket should be, and also the difference is visible in the out and about photos. The basket is very generous with a large clear opening at the rear,…

Handlebars, Handling, Wheels, Brake and Accessories
The slim, comfortable, foam covered handlebar is adjustable from a low 63 cm (which made Little Miss BB happy as she likes to push) through to a tall 109 cm….

Fold
The Bumbleride Indie 4 is a Tri-fold pushchair that is quick and easy to fold although it does take two hands. First the bumper bar needs folding down, or removing….

In Conclusion
The Bumbleride Indie 4 is a really excellent all terrain pushchair, but one which looks equally at home around the shops. It is extremely light to push thanks to the air tyres. We love the stability that 4 wheels give over 3 wheels. The seat is large enough for even our 5 year old, whilst it can also be suitably adapted for a young baby. The excellent storage basket and zipped pocket in the hood give ample room for bags and bits and pieces. We would have liked a swing away bumper bar, easier recline, more sophisticated storage locks and a flatter fold, but the larger tyres will always compromise on the fold. We love the quality feel, the gorgeous fabrics. The Bumbleride Indie is smart, stylish and a pushchair that you are proud to be seen with.  Although we still feel there is room for improvement, the Bumbleride Indie 4 is a fantastic pushchair and one that we love to use. It really is the elusive, great looking, go anywhere pushchair that many people are looking for. We are very happy to give the Bumbleride Indie 4, a 4 and a half star rating. This time the Bumbleride Indie 4 is a pushchair that we would very much like to stay.”

Stylish Bump – Road Test New Strollers – Indie Twin Double Pram

Stylish Bump – Road Test New Strollers – Indie Twin Double Pram

“The Bumbleride is a new addition to the market and is lightweight and easily maneuverable. It only weighs 15.5kg which is pretty light for a double pram, and for a side-by-side is quite slimline in width, so fits through standard doorways easily.

The seats fully recline for sleeping, and the footrest is adjustable too so the pram seat becomes a little cocoon – great for sleeping. The canopy reclines down further than most double prams too.

It was really easy to handle; lifting and turning was done with ease,…”

Magic Beans Blog – Meet The New Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller!

“The Bumbleride Indie, while not officially a jogging stroller, has long been a favorite of casual joggers, with a lockable wheel and big air-filled tires, along with a ton of other perks (all-terrain wheels, rear suspension, tons of storage, eco-friendly fabrics, a HUGE canopy, a near-flat recline, and more). This year, Bumbleride is adding another option for more dedicated joggers: the unique and lovely Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller, optimized to get you where you need to go, FAST!

In our video, Pati, the friendly voice at the other end of the line if you call us, demonstrates some of the cool new features on this exciting new jogger:

The most obvious innovation on this jogging stroller is the three swivel modes:

  • Full swiveling, for optimal maneuverability when you’re strolling the city or suburbs;
  • Locked in place, for running; and
  • A 30-degree swivel, which will help only-sometimes joggers handle corners, and will come in handy when you’re hiking!

The new fabrics are also absolutely fabulous – we love how they’ve made them even more eco-friendly while improving the quality even further. Everyone wins!”
