“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:
Bumbleride is the only stroller company that provides a 1 year warranty on the inner tubes and tires on its strollers.
The fabric is made of recycled PET bottles and from bamboo based fabric…
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….
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….
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?…
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….”

October 18, 2015 (San Diego, California) – Attendees of this year’s ABC Kids Expo are racing to the Bumbleride booth for a glimpse of the company’s highly-anticipated running stroller, the latest addition to their family of high-performance, environmentally-conscious strollers.
The first designated running stroller to join the Bumbleride family, Speed is designed to perform, no matter the athletic adventure. Totally versatile, Speed features Bumbleride’s new Speed3 steering which includes the following 3 modes:
1: Locked for running or training
2: 30-degree swivel for jogging or all terrain
3: Full 360-degree swivel for the city
Speed also includes all air filled tires (16” rear, 12” front) for maximum performance, comfort, and convenience, and an all-wheel suspension for the easiest push in its class. Weighing in at 23.5 pounds (including wheels and canopy), Speed measures 49”L x 25”W x 39.5”H when standing and 33”L x 25”W x 15.5”H when folded. A 20.5”L x 14”W backrest, 10”L x 14”W seat, and 13”L x 13”W foot well support kids safely and comfortably for years, and, with a handle-height range of 33.5”-44”H, Speed can be configured for the ergonomic comfort of almost any parent, as well.
