“A stroller that can handle a variety of surfaces and speeds.
As with most things baby related, it’s hard to know what you need until the little one has arrived. But trail runners will know at least one thing for certain: They’ll want a stroller they can run with. Your choice of ride can be the difference between a blissful jaunt with your beloved and a cry-filled slog that can’t end soon enough.
In testing running strollers over the last six months, we came to terms with the fact that bombing down some of our favorite technical, singletrack trails was just not going to happen with a baby. But the right stroller will keep you moving on packed dirt, gravel paths and mellow trails.”
2017 Bumbleride Speed
Weight: 26 lbs
Child Weight Max: 65 lbs
“The Bumbleride is well-made, versatile and durable—a piece of equipment you’ll be able to use for some time. It navigates easily on all types of surfaces, and has excellent suspension and a clean, sleek look.
The company touts it as being eco-friendly—the Speed is made partly of recycled water bottles and is free of chemicals like PVC and phthalates. That may contribute to the price, which is well above other comparable options.
With the front wheel locked—a feature many running strollers offer to increase stability when moving at faster speeds—this stroller can seem heavy, especially when pushing it uphill. But when the wheel is on swivel, it’s smooth and easy to push, making for a comfortable ride for both runner and baby.
The storage is spacious and easy to get into, and the canopy has more coverage than many other strollers, making it good for unexpected rain showers. The fabric is thick and durable, but can make for a sweaty baby on hot summer days. A couple of bonus features: it comes with a bell, so you can let people know when you’re running up behind them, and it has a small zippered pocket for your phone and keys.”
“Why you’ll love it: The Bumbleride Speed comes with a nice big storage basket and three helpful front wheel positions.
The Bumbleride Speed stroller was a huge hit with both me and my daughter. I loved the large, easily accessible storage basket and the harmful chemical-free recycled materials. She loved the comfy seat design and the included bicycle style warning bell. The Speed stroller model also came complete with a tire handpump and a bumper bar that goes across the kiddo’s lap.
One of my favorite things about the Bumbleride Speed is the three separate front wheel positions, which is a unique feature in all the strollers I tested. It can be set to a fixed position, a swiveling position, and a third in-between position. This means that the wheel stays steady and in-place for jogging, but has just enough wiggle room to help you take tight corners. I loved it!.. Read More.

The Bumbleride Speed is a real sportsman’s pram. All of the features, although not lavish or luxurious, work really well. The large seat, as well as the fact it can be used with a carrycot, means you will get true value for money and length of use out of the Speed.
We found this pushchair to be a real performer and, although it has modest looks, the environmentally friendly fabrics are a winner.”
