Best Buggy UK – Indie 4 All Terrain Stroller Review – 4.5 of 5 stars
Best Buggy UK recently tested our Indie 4, this is an excerpt from their review. Thank you Best Buggy for the review!
“We have been putting the Bumbleride Indie 4 stroller through it’s paces for the last few months here at Best Buggy HQ. We have previously tested the Bumbleride Indie 3 and the Indie Twin, so it was a pleasure to have another Bumbleride here back here for testing.
Bumbleride is really a name you can trust in the pushchair industry. The first impression of the Bumbleride pushchairs is always of quality. The build is sturdy and the aluminum chassis looks smart. The attention to detail and finish is good. The fabrics are strong and hard wearing, as well as looking great. The seat is well padded and the hood is lined. We especially love the 4 all terrain air tyres. The quality of the construction is what sets a good pushchair apart from the competition, and the Bumblerides certainly do stand out. There are 8 glorious colours. We have the Aquamarine and it is stunning! All round the Indie 4 looks great!
Child Comfort and Seating Positions
The Bumbleride Indie is suitable from birth to 25kgs. Although Master BB is well under the upper weight limit, we were unsure whether 105cms tall, 5 year old Master BB would fit in the Indie 4….
Harness and Bumper Bar
We love the Bumbleride Indie 4′s harness. There is plenty of space for even Master BB aged 5, whilst it can easily be reduced down for a small baby…
We have a huge confession to make. Mr BB decided to build the Indie 4 without me. He fitted the basket incorrectly at the rear. Unfortunately by the time we realised the basket was wrong (thanks to an eagle eyed BB Facebook reader), we had already taken the main photoset – the basket fits around the rear bar. We have retaken a few photos to show how the basket should be, and also the difference is visible in the out and about photos. The basket is very generous with a large clear opening at the rear,…
Handlebars, Handling, Wheels, Brake and Accessories
The slim, comfortable, foam covered handlebar is adjustable from a low 63 cm (which made Little Miss BB happy as she likes to push) through to a tall 109 cm….
The Bumbleride Indie 4 is a Tri-fold pushchair that is quick and easy to fold although it does take two hands. First the bumper bar needs folding down, or removing….
The Bumbleride Indie 4 is a really excellent all terrain pushchair, but one which looks equally at home around the shops. It is extremely light to push thanks to the air tyres. We love the stability that 4 wheels give over 3 wheels. The seat is large enough for even our 5 year old, whilst it can also be suitably adapted for a young baby. The excellent storage basket and zipped pocket in the hood give ample room for bags and bits and pieces. We would have liked a swing away bumper bar, easier recline, more sophisticated storage locks and a flatter fold, but the larger tyres will always compromise on the fold. We love the quality feel, the gorgeous fabrics. The Bumbleride Indie is smart, stylish and a pushchair that you are proud to be seen with. Although we still feel there is room for improvement, the Bumbleride Indie 4 is a fantastic pushchair and one that we love to use. It really is the elusive, great looking, go anywhere pushchair that many people are looking for. We are very happy to give the Bumbleride Indie 4, a 4 and a half star rating. This time the Bumbleride Indie 4 is a pushchair that we would very much like to stay.”
