From a roller made out of rope to speedy strollers, the editors share their favorite gear picks of the month:
“This new jogging stroller has about everything one could possibly want or need to go running with your kid. It folds and unfolds easily, has a great suspension, plenty of pockets and storage, a generous canopy that unfolds to block out the sun from almost any angle and time of day, a magnetic peekaboo window to keep a quick eye on your passenger, a breakaway seatbelt design that allows quick exits when meltdowns happen, water-bottle holders and thoughtful touches like a concealed, compact air pump that’s there if you need it. Maybe the coolest feature, though, is in the front fork. You can make it swivel fully, or swivel only partially so that it doesn’t dangerously spin out—or, it can lock forward for when you’re running faster speeds. And while other fixed-front-wheel jogging strollers will frustratingly veer left or right, this stroller’s fork has a micro-adjustment feature to make it roll straight and true with the turn of a knob. It rides solidly and smoothly, and is a rare pleasure to run with among jogging strollers. The only thing conspicuously absent is a handbrake; Bumbleride says it was kept off in order to save weight.”—Adam Elder, managing editor

“Bumbleride is one of those companies that I just like.
Their mission is to bring beautiful, highly functional, well-made and eco-friendly strollers to the world. They are not a corporate giant, like most, and they have amazing customer service.
Unlike some brands that claim to be eco-friendly (ahem, Orbit), Bumbleride strollers actually are. They are PVC & phthalate free with no fire retardants and no polyurethane foam. Their fabric supplier is Oeko-Tex certified & a bluesign partner.
Their bread and butter, the Bumbleride Indie, has long been a cult favorite in the all-terrain stroller world. The Speed was introduced in March of this year (2016) to serve the population of joggers, runners, and outdoor enthusiasts who need a little more.
Their strollers are little pricier than most, but built to last.
Bumbleride strollers are constructed of lightweight yet heavy-duty aluminum. Yes, you can go buy a Baby Trend or a Schwinn for half the price — and they will rust out and end up in the landfill in a few years. With a higher-quality stroller like this, you can re-sell it (later on) for a high value knowing it will last for a very long time.
What sets the Speed jogging stroller apart from other joggers like BOB is a stylish, upmarket look that isn’t purely sporty. They are currently offering 4 patterns that are all subtle and sophisticated….Read more” – Meg Collins, Lucie’s List
We’ve got the need… for SPEED! The 2016 Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller from Bumbleride is perfection. It is durable enough to take on miles of trail running but comfy enough to be the only stroller you’ll ever need!
The most noteworthy feature is the Speed3 Steering. Most jogging strollers have two steering options; the front wheel fixed straight for long distance running, or a full 360 swivel capability for everyday use. Bumbleride realized that something was missing – an in between option! The Speed has a third setting that allows a 30 degree swivel on the front wheel. This is a perfect option for jogging curvy trails or neighborhood streets where you still need some turning allowance. The 30 degree limit is perfect for gentle turns but still sturdy enough at faster speeds. This Speed3 technology is only available on the Bumbleride Speed stroller. It truly allows your family to choose the pace!
The Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller is available now on PishPoshBaby.com in four stylish color options for $549 (FREE shipping) and includes the air pump, bumper bar and even a cute bell. Along with all of this, you get Bumbleride’s impeccable customer service and 3 year warranty. The Speed is an excellent choice for your family and will last for many years.
“Bumbleride is a beloved stroller company so so many parents have come to love and trust. Their Indie strollers are designed beautifully as urban strollers that can take you everywhere. Their all-new Bumbleride Speed running stroller is a true jogging stroller with Bumbleride’s classic style. The stroller is really sleek-looking without seeming bulky.
From first glance, we’re able to tell that it has a large canopy with a pop-out visor, easily accessible big underseat storage basket, air tires and adjustable handlebar.”
