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….”

LET’S NOT REINVENT THIS WHEEL.

Lets Not Reinvent This Wheel Bumbleride Strollers Why Air Filled Tires

LET’S NOT REINVENT THIS WHEEL.

Call me old fashioned, but I’m pretty into air. And so is every single car manufacturer in the world. Not to mention, the most technologically-advanced car racing series in the world, Formula-1. So if all these guys are filling their tires with old-fashioned air, why do some strollers opt to fill their tires with foam?

But before I get into this earth-shattering air vs. foam debate, let me tell you where I’m coming from.

My first stroller was not a Bumbleride. It was a City Mini GT (foam-filled tires). I put a lot of thought into this purchase and admittedly, it has some legitimate strengths. In particular, it’s really easy to fold. I consider it the Honda Accord of strollers. It looks pretty good (although the styling is conservative), does everything pretty well and drives just as you would expect, nicely.

After getting a little tired of “nice,” however, I opted for a stroller that I could actually connect with on a deeper level. Like, say, a fine automobile. You see, the difference between a Honda and BMW, for example, has to do with the intangibles. Like how you feel when you’re behind the wheel, how it takes the corners as if it is simply interpreting and responding to your innermost desires and how it looks. Yes, looks are so very important.

To me, my Bumbleride feels like my car. I drive a BMW X5 diesel. Like my car, the stroller responds to me and to the road with confidence. The handling is spot on. The fabrics look and feel durable, yet luxurious and are equally good for the environment. It feels tight. And like a diesel BMW, it’s unique. If you’re a car lover, uniqueness is everything.

Most importantly, the tires on my Bumbleride are filled to the brim with good old-fashioned air.

Air is better. Air is nature’s shock absorber. Air is proven to deliver the most comfortable ride, while maintaining a high-level of performance. Air-filled tires can handle road elements far better than their foamy counterparts. Road elements that can jerk your precious baby awake from a happy slumber.

Air is not about off-roading or all-terrain. Air is about the terrain we experience on a daily basis. Air is about handling all the terrains with ease and comfort as well as cornering like a Formula-1 car when road is smooth.

This is why I’m sticking to air. Something that’s been pretty much the norm since a man named Dunlop decided to patent the idea in 1888. He’s long gone but his wheel remains the same. So let’s not reinvent it. – Graham Simon, Bumbleride Adventurer, Creative director. Daddy. Lover of anything with wheels.
