Susan Brian of Mom’s Stroller Reviews has been a longtime Bumbleride owner and has reviewed many strollers (she’s an expert!). Below is an excerpt from her 2018 Bumbleride Indie All Terrain Stroller review. Thank you for your detailed review Susan!
The Bumbleride Indie 2018 is a 4th generation jogger with some minor improvements. It’s designed for active parents who enjoy light jogging and want an everyday stroller with the off-road ability with LUXURY features.
Indie is perfect for moms like me, who is not a serious jogger, but still wants to go for a jog once in a while. Since I am a huge Indie fan and thought the previous model was almost perfect, I was excited to see what improvements Bumbleride came up with.
For 2018 they only had 3 updates:
1) It has an updated UPF 45+ canopy that now sits higher on the frame and can accommodate a taller child. It still offers the same great coverage.
2) The second update made the fold a little easier with redesigned release triggers.
3) New storage pockets in the back of the seat where you can put your water bottle or other small essentials.
And of course they’ve added new colors. The new eco-friendly fabrics are made out of 100% recycled PET materials. Also, no harmful chemicals were used in the process.
Despite the upgrades, Indie 2018 still weighs only 24 lbs and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. It can also turn into a travel system with most popular car seats
It rolls on large air-filled tires that glide through any terrain. This is a great jogging stroller that you can take off road. Easy to pushed even with one hand. Some other features that parents enjoy are: adjustable leg rest, adjustable handle bar, large basket, mesh window in the seat, plenty of storage, adjustable 5-point harness, and run away strap.
I gave the new Indie 5 out of 5 stars since I really like the new updates and think that this is an outstanding jogger, one of the best on the market. It retailing for around $549 and comes with an air-pump and a bumper bar…
