“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

Best Strollers for Twins – Lucie’s List – Indie Twin Stroller

Indie Twin Papyrus Green

  • Price: $729.99
  • Stroller Weight: 34 lbs.
  • Weight Limits: 90 lbs combined

Higher up the food chain is the beloved Bumbleride Indie Twin; if you can afford it – it’s a “must-have” say many of our twin parents. Yes, I feel like this stroller was specifically designed with twins in mind.

The Indie Twin is an all terrain, side by side stroller with four (12″) air filled tires that rides like a dream. Not only is it utilitarian, it’s also very beautiful and eco-friendly. If you can splurge on one pricier item for your twins, this would probably be my vote. Please read the FULL review of this stroller here.

The Bumbleride Indie Twin can take two car seats at the same time as well as two carrycots ($159 ea) — your choice!

For car seats, it uses a dual car seat adapter system ($39 each piece — one “upper” and one “lower”). It ONLY works for these seats: the Maxi Cosi Mico/AP (not the NXT), Cybex Aton or Cybex Aton 2. See more on this here.

If you are sold on this stroller, make your life easy and get two of these car seats^^  (unless, of course, you are past the car seat stage, in which case it will work regardless).

Note also that these car seat adapters must be removed to fold the stroller, which is mehhh. They are easy to remove, but still. A slight pain.

Other favorite features include ample storage for your gear (x2), amazing canopies, luxurious fabrics, and an adjustable handle for tall or shorter than normal parents. This is one of the few side by side strollers that doesn’t have a bar bisecting the storage basket, so you can actually fit quite a large bag down there.

The main complaint of this stroller is the folding; it’s not the easiest to fold and requires a little muscle-ing down in order to get it to lock. The same goes for unfolding it. That’s probably my only complaint.

Bottom line: The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a beautiful stroller with a super smooth ride. Unlike most, it takes two infant car seats or two bassinets, so you can use it from birth. The fabrics are luxurious, the storage is amazing, and the canopies are large. Outside of the non-optimal fold, we loveeeeee it!

Best All Terrain Double Stroller – Indie Twin Review

“The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a cult favorite.

The four GIANT air-filled tires make it feel like you’re pushing a cloud (one-handed, even), which is a difficult claim to make for a double side-by-side stroller of this bulk. Speaking of size, this stroller is 29.5” wide, which will get through a standard door frame (but not with the cup holder on the side, oops!)….

Both seats recline independently and nearly flat, so you can use it from birth, even without a car seat or bassinet. The seats have adjustable leg rests, which are especially great for infants, and the total weight capacity is 90 lbs, or 45 lbs in each seat.

Bottom line: The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a favorite among twin parents and parents of two, especially those needing the giant tires that can plow through anything. While it’s not great for jogging and requires some muscle to fold, this stroller tops the charts for beauty, storage capacity, suspension, ease of pushing, and usability. Let’s not forget Bumbleride’s excellent customer service. Hurrah!” -Meg Collins. Read the entire in-depth Indie Twin review at http://www.lucieslist.com/best-all-terrain-double-strollers/ .

Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller Reviews

What People Are Saying About Indie Twin

Daily Mom: 

“The Bumbleride Indie Twin is truly unique in that it offers two separate, fully adjustable seats- both recline and have movable footrests that operate independently from one another. So that means your toddler can sit upright with his or her feet at an angle and you can recline your baby’s seat or lift up the footrest for comfort.”. –http://dailymom.com/discover/stroller-guide-bumbleride-indie-twin/

A Healthy Slice of Life:

“The Indie Twin is incredibly well built. Every part of it is luxurious.The fabric, the fact that there is very little plastic, it’s sturdiness. It is built for all terrain and it shows. Still, it’s only 34 pounds, which makes it manageable to fold up and take with you.”. “The Indie Twin is incredibly easy to steer, even while holding a cup of coffee in the other hand.“. –http://www.ahealthysliceoflife.com/bumbleride-indie-twin-review/

My Tailored Fitness:

“For a side by side double stroller, It’s slim. A full inch narrower than the Double BOB, which makes a difference when squeezing through doorways. This makes the Indie Twin great for running errands in addition to using it for exercise.”.- http://blog.mytailoredfitness.com/bumbleride-indie-twin-review/

Lucie’s List:

“The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a cult favorite. If all strollers were competing in a beauty pageant, the Bumbleride would be the winner.”.- http://www.lucieslist.com/best-all-terrain-double-strollers/#bumbleride

About Health:

“The adjustable features give the stroller longevity, making it a good option for both infants and older children.”.-
