Be still, my heart. The 2013 Bumbleride features, changes and a brand new stroller

One of my stops at ABC Kids was a hometown favorite of mine, Bumbleride. I always have a blast with the Bumbleride crew and that day was no exception. While visiting their booth, I got a chance to see the new colors and features for 2013 and get a sneak peak at the brand new Bumbleride Era stroller – coming mid-2013. It’s so new that I was only able to see a digital picture of the stroller and a list of its features. And I liked what I saw…

Let’s start with the new features and colors for 2013.

The Bumbleride colors are becoming more vibrant and bold, but still represent what Bumbleride is known and loved for – color mixed with comfort, eco-conscious materials, functionality and practicality. New fabric types and colors will be featured on the entire 2013 collection, beginning with the Indie in January.

NEW COLORS FOR 2013

  • Papyrus – a vibrant green with a soothing blue seat.
  • Cayenne – a two-toned spicy red.
  • Lotus Pink – a dark teal with a splash of pink.

THE NEW 2013 BUMBLERIDE ERA DETAILS
As soon as I have pictures, I will share, but for now… let these details (and my word that it’s going to be awesome) hold you over.

SLIDE AND LOCK SYSTEM

The Bumbleride Era uses a unique slide and lock system to attach its seating components to its chassis. This new system provides the most lateral support possible, minimizing the seat’s movement on the frame. This results in a more durable system that will function better and last longer.

CUSTOM CONFIGURATIONS
The Bumbleride Era chassis is designed to accommodate a variety of seating options specifically formed to fit your little one throughout all stages of his early development. The system’s options consist of a lightweight aluminum chassis, infant car seat adapter, bassinet, modular/reversible seat as well as a lightweight soft seat designed specifically for larger toddlers. The new optional Toddler Board attaches to Era to provide a ride along feature for growing families.

FABRICS AND MATERIALS
The Bumbleride Era will be available in 6 bold color options. Each fabric option utilizes 50% recycled polyester exterior fabric and 50% bamboo charcoal interior fabric. The interior fabrics that touch baby utilize bamboo charcoal’s unique features like moisture absorption, temperature regulation and prevention of bacterial growth.

SUSPENSION
The Bumbleride Era’s 10” rear and 8” front wheels are supported by durable suspensions that make city walking as smooth as possible.

5-POINT BREAKAWAY HARNESS
The Bumbleride Era’s one-push breakaway harness is easy to adjust and separates into 5 components, helping to prevent your baby from becoming entangled.
