“We recently had the chance to check out Bumbleride‘s newest stroller — theIndie Movement Edition ($490) — and it is one sweet ride.

It’s essentially an all-terrain vehicle for your baby that easily navigates city streets or beach boardwalks in a flash, while providing maximum comfort for your little one.

Want one? The company is giving one away to a lucky Moms & Babies reader in the color (jet or fog) of their choice.

Things we like:

We felt very cool pushing this sleek stroller and comments from strangers like, “that’s a swanky stroller,” validated that. The water-resistant material, the shape of the brushed metal, the adjustable footrest — it’s all very stylish.

And thanks to 12-inch air inflated tires, the ride is super smooth. Plus, you can use push it anywhere. From sandy beaches to the bumpiest cobblestone streets, this 20-lb. stroller stays in control of any surface.

The bottom basket is huge. We stashed milk, cereal, bread and butter and it all fit nicely, with spare room for your diaper bag. Also, the cup-holder, car seat attachment/bumper bar, jogging strap and infant headrest come standard, which is nice because with other strollers we’ve had to buy these items separately.

Things we don’t like:

Folding up this stroller isn’t easy. You’ll need two hands, which is hard if you’re on your own with baby. And at just over 2-ft., it’s pretty wide. For city dwellers who have to stash their strollers in small places (i.e. tiny vestibules), it’s not the most convenient option. Also, it almost didn’t fit down the checkout aisle at a neighborhood grocery store.

To slide the SPF 45 canopy back or forth, you have to stop the stroller completely, which isn’t a big problem unless you’re in a rush.

Moms & Babies Rating:

With big wheels and tons of cargo space this stylish, all-terrain stroller is ideal for suburban families on the go.

“Only take the essentials- Keep in mind you don’t need every baby gadget from your home. A lightweight stroller was my savior on the trip and the only equipment I truly needed. Baby J slept in her Bumbleride Flite everywhere we went, so we didn’t have to plan our outings around her naps. The stroller was amazing in the airport, but substantial enough to go on walks once we got to Florida. ” http://bit.ly/dXeyp4

“After we assembled the Bumbleride, we stepped back, had a look and thought Hmm, maybe twins wouldn’t be so bad. It won’t be as convenient in tight, urban settings, but it would make a wonderful addition to family vacas and long, leisurely walks. And if you want to take it shopping, the Bumbleride can comfortably fit through any standard doorway with exceptional maneuverability. Plus, the features are off the charts: Plush seating, cushioned handle bars, an extra large sun canopy and lots of storage make it one of the most comfortable rides we tested. It can also handle uneven terrain and off-road hills better than most.”  http://bit.ly/esx87h
