Bumbleride Speed Review – @RunningRoundy

View this post on Instagram

@bumbleride has so generously provided their Speed jogging stroller, bassinet, and accessories in exchange for my honest review of their amazing products. I’m excited to let you know all about it! There are so many impressive aspects and features that make Bumbleride unique and the best choice in my opinion. . . They’re a company that is like-minded with outdoor companies such as Patagonia, the North Face, and others who strive to preserve the planet. Some ways they’re doing so is by making eco friendly fabrics from recycled plastic bottles and using dye processes that conserve water. . I like their straightforward, common sense design. It’s by far the best on the market in my opinion. Their clean, purpose-built design is the perfect balance between functionality and style. It’s the most aesthetically pleasing. The steering is engineered for easy strolling and turning. And the front wheel can be locked for your faster tempo runs. Other features that impress me are the adjustable handlebar and how incredibly compact it becomes once it’s folded. And it’s never been easier to fold a stroller, let alone a jogger! My husband was also very impressed by this. He thinks it’s better than any stroller we’ve used, and more compact than the smaller ones we’ve owned. He likes that it’s a stroller that can be your “one and only.” The assembly was very easy and simple. There’s nothing unnecessary in the sophisticated design. . Let me tell you about the bassinet. I’m in love with this accessory! Baby is so comfortable laying down inside. You can attach it with or without the seat fabric (I left mine in, placing the bassinet on top). They also have the option of a seat adapter that allows you to use your own infant carrier brand including Maxi Cosi, Cybex, Nuna, Peg Perego, Graco or Chicco. The bassinet is my favorite accessory. . I did my research on jogging strollers including the BOB and Thule brands, and nothing topped Bumbleride. This high-end stroller is sold all over the world and by fine retailers such as Pottery Barn Kids, as well as on their website bumbleride.com . #bumblerideadventures #bumbleride #postpartumtraining

Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller Review – Thoughts By Brandi

“I just want to start by saying that this post is NOT sponsored by Bumbleride but I have a deep love for our Bumbleride Indie Twin double stroller that is so worth sharing with all of you. It is hands down my favorite double stroller for day-to-day use, walking around town and tackling tough terrain. The Bumbleride Indie twin can handle just about anything you throw at it and we couldn’t be happier with our double stroller.

Not only is this my preferred stroller, the Bumbleride Indie Twin is the babes preferred stroller as well! It’s tall, the shade is huge, and the ride is so smooth. Because we’ve mostly given up napping, we often walk to the park and picnic and then walk home and these two always fall asleep on the walk home. It’s the perfect “put your baby to sleep” stroller. If I know we are going to be some place where I need the babes to sit quietly and comfortably in a stroller for any extended period of time, the bumbleride is my go-to.

There are so many reasons why I love this stroller… it’s not only my favorite for the babes, but it’s my favorite for myself. It’s surprisingly difficult to find a double stroller that can go over just about any terrain with two 3 year olds in it while I push with one hand and drink my coffee. The Bumbleride Indie Twin glides over just about anything with ease, which makes pushing it more enjoyable, and less like a chore.

Here’s a list of reasons why I am such a fan of the Bumbleride Indie Twin.

-One-handed push

-Tough rubber grip for running and standing fold (won’t tear like foam handle bars)

-Standing slim fold (the smallest among all other double side by side strollers) please note that if you’re going from a single to a double, this stroller will still feel big but compared to other side by side all terrain strollers, it is in fact the smallest/most compact!

-Removable and washable fabric, even the canopies can be taken off and washed!

-Slim design, fits through all standard doorways, even the tiny ones in old buildings!

-4 wheels vs 3 which makes for more stability and smoother stroll!

-All wheel suspension (a must have for coffee runs)

-Air filled tires, sometimes this is a pain but for the most part, we don’t have issues and it makes jogging and trails so much smoother

-Appearance, it’s sleek and the color options are amazing, we have the Maritime blue and love it.

-Storage, the biggest storage basket on a side by side double, two storage pockets on the backs of each seat and two zip storage pouches on the backside of each canopy! Also a little toy or water bottle storage on the inside of each seat for the kiddos to use!

-Easy add on glider board, I will say, sometimes the glider board gets in the way but if you take smaller steps, it’s not a big deal! Extends the life of the stroller making it easy to use with 3 kids!

-Lay flat design so can be used from birth without any add ons… you can buy the bassinet but you don’t have to!

-Adjustable foot rest, so great for napping and for little legs!

-Extended canopy!

If you use your stroller often and for long distances, this is the stroller for you! I don’t think this is a great stroller if you’re a speed runner but for the average jogger like myself and my husband, this has met all our running needs.

There are a few things I wish this stroller had, mainly a decelerating handbrake for our extremely hilly neighborhood but because it’s so light and easy to push, it’s also easy to navigate down hills. We have logged miles upon miles on this stroller and it is still going strong. From photography walks to beach trips, the Bumbleride Indie Twin has yet to disappoint us.” – Brandi

Bumbleride Indie Twin Review

“This is more expensive side-by-side double stroller, but the quality and versatility are definitely worth the money. Bumbleride Indie Twin accepts two infant car seats and two bassinets so parents can use it from birth.

It’s not only a top-notch twin stroller, but also a great double stroller for siblings. All thanks to excellent stability and weight distribution.

The regular seats feature near-flat recline, there are also adjustable calf rests.You can actually use the full recline and calf rest raised all the way up to convert the seat into infant-mode. It provides secured and enclosed space for small infant.

It can be even used for a newborn baby but since the seat is facing front, you wouldn’t be able to observe your baby (except for the viewing window on the canopy). That’s why I think getting a bassinet for newborn baby is better option, particularly for frequent walks.

But it’s nice to have a newborn-ready seat, especially since this double stroller is quite pricey and not all parents may have extra budget for the carrycots.

The maximum weight capacity is 45 lbs for each seat. Based on customer reviews I can tell you that Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller will most certainly serve you up to 3-3.5 years.

I love how well-padded and cushy the seats are. They are perfect for naps on-the-go, no matter how old your babies are.

Another noteworthy features are the two large canopies that extend really far. They even pass over the bumper bars! Even when the seat is fully reclined the canopy provides great amount of shade. Thanks to that you can be sure that the sun won’t disturb your kiddo’s nap. No more worries about sun in baby’s eyes!…” READ MORE
