“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

Meet Speed, By Bumbleride

Guest Blogpost by Jacqui Saldana

I have teamed up with Bumbleride to help them celebrate the release of a new addition to their stroller line up. The newest set of wheels is a designated running stroller so aptly named Speed. Speed features a thousand cool things, a few of which I have highlighted below. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to hit the pavement with Speed. When I signed up for my  5K last month I was in need of a stroller equipped for running/jogging. I actually reached out to Bumbleride to see if I could test out Speed and was seriously delighted when they agreed! Being a momma of two, I know buying baby gear can be a bit overwhelming. Which is why I wanted to share with you what I loved most about Bumbleride’s Speed. Hopefully this post is coming to you at the right time, or can be passed on to someone who is in the market for a pretty bad ass stroller.

Let me first start this all off by saying I am in no way a professional runner. I’d say I’m more of a professional walker who busts into a jog when a good song comes on through my headphones. I do love a good running stroller, but the Bumbleride Speed sold me more on its lightweight and easy one step fold. Anything that adds ease into my daily life gets a gold star.

My favorites of Speed and a few photos below.

The thing I noticed right away was the smooth push Speed offers. I know what you are thinking! A stroller is a stroller. But really, Speed was designed to take on all terrain which I am guessing is why the push is so soft. I was thrilled about this mostly because Mila is still really tiny. Though we 100% got clearance from her pediatrician on her being able to join me on a jog. I was still worried about her in there. With very little neck control I didn’t want her flopping around. Through out the smooth ride Mila was able to enjoy herself as best a baby can. She slept every. single. time. we used this stroller.

Jog
We were able to adjust the 5 point harness snug to fit her small body. (she currently is 11 pounds 25 inches) And with just one click the straps released and we could pick up Mila from the stroller pretty easily. Easy. Easy. There is theme. I love things that are just simple. 1, 2, done.

When we first got to see Speed it was at Bumbleride HQ. One of the first things that was shown to us was the handle bar. “Feel the handlebar!” At first I didn’t think much of it. But after using it in my race I found its smooth rubber grip to be extremely helpful. Of course, now I can’t remember what exactly that rubber is called. I do know it is PVC free and the entire handlebar adjusts up or down. Which is SUPER awesome since I’m tall.

Speed has an oversized sun canopy that offers SPF 45. If it doesn’t cover enough of baby, you can extend it further. I love this photo because one, Mila’s tiny feet kicking out. And two, shortly after this photo was taken Mila spit her pacifier out and it landed on the ground. Dan tried to grab it quick but kicked it and the pacifier fell into the ocean. We both started to laugh, then Mila started to cry so we packed up and left. It was pretty funny.

Lesson learned.

Pack more than one pacifier.

Even though I mentioned my favorite thing about this stroller was its one step fold…I lied. My favorite is actually the bell that comes installed on the side of the handlebar! I rang that puppy 24/7. It came in handy during my race. We also walked to grab ice cream and when the ice cream parlor called out our number for next to order…I rang my bell. I love that thing!

Who looks better. Guy who has great running form OR Mom who has terrible running form, but one seriously cool stroller? 😉

In all honesty Speed is pretty great. Aside from what makes it a great stroller it did something more for me. It made me fall back in love with running and working out. I think that is what really makes this a great piece. The comfort and functionality of Speed inspires me to get outside and do something healthy for myself. I kind of loved that Mila was lulled to sleep every time we used this stroller. It allowed me to stay out a bit longer. Work out a bit harder. It isn’t always easy finding baby gear that fits the bill for both mom and baby. I am thrilled to report that this stroller exceeds in all areas. Most importantly in helping mommas have the freedom they need to get out, work out and be the best for their baby!

Bumbleride Indie Jogging Stroller Review

“Description: An agile all terrain stroller suitable for jogging or maneuvering around the city.” -Baby Center Editors

Baby Center recently reviewed our Indie jogging stroller! Their editor’s had a hard time imagining a better stroller to deal with life’s bumps in the road thanks to “its spacious seat and generous length” and “…because it weighs only about 20 pounds, and has a swiveling front wheel, it’s also an adept city stroller.”!

Editor’s appreciated the lockable front swivel wheel, large sun canopy with SPF protection and the included universal infant adapter, which they noted most stroller manufacturer’s do not include as standard.
