The Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller is one of the best looking double jogging strollers in my opinion. Maybe this is not so important, but when you are getting an expensive product that is certainly one of the thing you would want. Apart from the good looks you would want to find out what is that puts this double stroller in the best double stroller list and we will find out together in this Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller review.
One of the best features of the Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller is the size. Although being a side-by-side double stroller, it is only 29.5 inches wide that would fit it to any single doorway and makes it the best double stroller to use for shopping and walks in town. Apart from being sort of “slim” for a side-by-side double stroller, the Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller is also very lightweight. With its 34 lbs easily beats most of the competitors and doesn’t make you feel like working out when pushing the double stroller up and down.
The Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller will make the shortlist when looking for the best double stroller not only with its lightweight and ability to fit through single doorways, but also with it’s maneuverability. It turns in a dime and will ensure a smooth ride through all types of terrain, this of course, is possible thanks to the four 12 inch air filled tires it is equipped with, where the two front ones have swivelling option and all four have their own independant suspension.
The shock absorption and the air filled wheels are a must for every double jogging stroller and the Bumbleride double stroller has both, so you will not only find the double stroller very comfortable for everyday use, but also a great asset for your short jogging sessions with your two little ones. I am saying short because, although the company claims that this Bumbleride double stroller is great for jogging I will permit myself to disagree.
In my opinion, it is ok to jog occasionally as the wheels are not as stable when running (even with the front wheels locked). The Bumbleride double stroller is also equipped with a wrist strap that is a must when talking about jogging strollers and you do not need to forget to use when running in order to provide greater security for you and your little ones, however, the Bumbleride double stroller would be my first choice, when looking for one of the best double strollers for all-terrain everyday use.
The brake is foot rear one, but is very easy to hit and as I said that this is a great double stroller for all terrains, yes, you will be able to hit and release the brake even in flip flops.There is only one thing that is not my favourite and that is the folding. To fold the Bumbleride double stroller you need to push two buttons on each side of the frame and the upper part will collapse. Then you need to sort of kick forward the rear wheels in order to fold the stroller and then secure it with straps. It is not difficult, but there are some competitor brands that offer way easier folding.
However, what makes it up for that little effort is the storage bin. It is very big and easily accessible from either side or the back. You are also provided with some more storage space in the back pockets of the seats and as a compliment to the adjustable handlebar you get a cup holder :)
Now we came to the most important part for your little ones - the seats. Honestly, these are the most nicely padded and comfortable seats that you could possibly find. The fabric is very soft and easy to wipe clean. There are almost no plastic bits, apart from the 5-point harness that secures your babies in their seats.
Eachs eat can take up to 45 lbs of load, which is a bit less than the usual 50 lbs offered by competitor brands, but good enough for 4-5 year old toddler to feel comfortable in the seat. The seats recline to a full flat by simply pulling a strap on the back, so you will be able to use the Bumbleride double stroller even with very small babies in it. The foot rests are individually adjustable and when pulled up provide greater security for the small baby and bigger comfort to the toddler, when the foot rest is pulled all the way down.
Each seat is also fitted with an individually adjustable canopy with a peek-a-boo window. I need to say that I absolutely love the canopies. They are big and I really can protect the little passengers from the uncertainties of the weather. The peek-a-boo window has a magnetic close ( which is great compared to the noisy velcro) and is actually a mesh window that I particularly find way better than a plastic visor. Each seat also has a bumper bar that adds to the safety of your kids.
Another thing that is important and will be very helpful to a lot of moms is that the company offers newborn twins carrycots to fit the Bumbleride double stroller, but they are sold separately.If you have car seats for newborn twins, you can accommodate them on the double jogging stroller by using a double adapter. However it is very important to know that the double adapter would only accept Maxi Cosi Mico, Maxi Cosi Mico AP, Cybex Aton or Cybex Aton 2 and both car seats need to be of the same kind to fit.
If you only have to accommodate one car seat, then your options are way more. The universal car seat adapter that comes with the Bumbleride double stroller accepts lots of other branded stroller models.
Overall, the Bumbleride Indie Twin Strollerwould easily turn into the one of best double stroller for all outdoors loving, active parents looking for a comfortable and easy to use all terrain double stroller that also looks good. It has a strong quality build and great maneuverability. Your babies will feel safe and comfortable during shopping trips and walks in the park, beach or town center.
