“Family-run San Diego born brand Bumbleride has taken the US by storm. We’ve been using its Era pushchair to see if it can win over the UK as well.
+ Easy to use, roomy seat, great wheels, large basket, real workhorse, smart appearance
– Occasionally difficult to bump up kerbs when seat lying flat and parent-facing
Bumbleride Era Review: Verdict
Bumbleride is a household name in the US. Its pushchairs are seen on every street corner and, quite frankly, it is easy to see why.
You might live a suburban lifestyle but enjoy off-road ramblings in your spare time and the Bumbleride Era can handle both of these situations perfectly. Ideal for families not wanting to have to buy separate pushchairs for different situations, the Bumbleride Era pushes over rough terrain like an Out‘n’About Nipper 360 but performs in the city like a Baby Jogger Versa.
The really neat ‘flat’ nature of the fold means it can easily be transported in car boots, and the fact that there is no need to purchase any additional accessories such as carrycots and raincovers is nice and easy on the pockets of parents too.
From wheels to handlebar, the quality build of the Bumbleride Era means you are buying a trusty workhorse that will serve you and your family right through your children’s early years.
We have really enjoyed using the Bumbleride Era and perhaps the most notable point to take away from this review is that the Era fitted into our family like a glove. Not once did we have to alter our plans or routines to accommodate features of the pushchair and all the while it served us well, no matter what the situation…”
“As parents who know that parenting without the right gear in a city can be like taking on a White Squall on an ocean voyage, we couldn’t be more thrilled about the new Bumbleride Era. Built for all-terrain adventures, the Era makes city-life nothing but smooth sailing.“
“There are numerous reasons why we already love anything and everything by Bumbleride.
They’re owned and designed by parents who actually understand our wants, needs and wildest dreams.
They’re dedicated to pursuing sustainable production methods and always opt for the cleanest option when it comes to choosing materials.
They’re conscious of our children’s comfort, safety and growing bodies.
Known for ticking all the right boxes, Bumbleride has done it yet again with the Era Stroller.
While city-strollers need to have a small footprint (which the Era does – only 24.5” W), they also need to be extremely durable, ergonomically designed for parents of all heights, comfortable and safe for babies riding and able to carry your daily groceries, diaper bag, umbrella, older child’s scooter, and the family pet. (Okay, maybe not Spot.)
City-strollers are essentially a car and you need to know that they’re going to get you where you need to go efficiently and effectively. They need to be able to fit in elevators, cafes, and not take up an entire room in your home when not in use. It’s also nice when they look super sleek!
