“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!
THE BEST FEATURES OF THE BUMBLERIDE ERA
It’s infant compatible without any attachments. (Car seat adaptor and bassinets sold separately if preferred)
It features a fully reclinable seat that can be both parent and forward facing.
The eco-friendly and machine washable fabrics are made from OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified post-consumer PET water bottles, which means they are kind to the earth and your tot.
The adjustable handlebar is made from smooth and sustainable cork. Naturally non-toxic, it is one of the details we love most about the Era!
It has a single compact fold with auto-lock and self standing stow.
It comes with a super extendable UPF 45+ sun canopy. (Makes day-time naps a breeze!)
Secure foot break is even flip-flop friendly.
The storage basket can and will literally save the day.
Designed with air-filled wheels and all-wheel suspension for the smoothest ride.
It’s car seat compatible. The optional adaptors are compatible with Clek, Nuna, Cybex car seats and more.
It comes with a three year manufacturer’s warranty.
Amazing all on its own, you can also get a sibling Mini Board to attach on the back, a rain cover, footmuff and liner for chilly days as well as a travel bag. Designed with your whole family in mind, the Bumbleride Era truly is the innovative stroller you’ve been waiting for.”
Point Loma couple builds a stroller company for the urban active mom
As they say, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage. For San Diegans Matt and Emily Reichardt, this playground rhyme is not only true, it’s also a business plan.
In 2004, they started Bumbleride, a Little Italy-based company that makes stylish strollers for the savvy, athletic mom. All terrain tires, lightweight airplane-grade aluminum framing, and sleek designs make them hip, but not flashy. Consumers are comparing them to top-of-the-line brands like Bugaboo and BOB.
The Reichardts have known each other since they were kids in Point Loma. Both graduated from Point Loma High School. They later married, and while Emily was pregnant with their first child, they got an idea….
Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine was one of the first to review Indie 4. Here are some of the highlights from their review:
“We live in Bend, Oregon, which is widely considered to be an outdoor wonderland. As such, we were very excited to have a chance to take a look at the Bumbleride Indie 4 because it’s touted as an all-terrain stroller for urban and off-road settings.”
“Assembly was a cinch. Everything goes together in an intuitive fashion and does not require any tools. I must admit, we were pretty amazed the process was so easy.”
“It does fold flatter than many comparable strollers, and when the stroller is collapsed, there are clasps to hold it together to keep it in the closed position. The Indie 4 stands on its own when folded, which is convenient when stowing in a closet or garage.”
“The sunshade on the stroller provides a lot of coverage and is easy to operate. In fact, it provides the most sun coverage of any stroller we’ve owned. A very nice feature!”
“The swivel wheels have nice tread and roll very well. We have gone on walks in our neighborhood, around local shops and on trails near our house. The stroller does great in snow, too! We took a walk in about four inches of snow, and the Bumbleride Indie 4 performed great! The fourth wheel adds stability and makes this a pretty universal stroller option.”
“Now to the bassinet. When I first saw this feature I thought it was a brilliant idea. The bassinet attaches pretty easily, the sunshade rotates to provide adequate shade, and seems to provide a nice spot for an infant or newborn to relax on a walk. Plus, it’s included with the price of the stroller!”
“Overall, the Bumbleride Indie 4 is a great all-purpose stroller that we use almost every day. It’s great!
