Bumbleride Indie 4 Review

Review on the bumbleride Indie 4.  I am officially pissed that this stroller did not exist when I had babies. 

I am officially pissed that this stroller did not exist when I had babies. This would have been perfect for me (I always say that “there’s no ‘best stroller’ just one that’s best for you.”)

The Indie 4 is a compact, lightweight all-terrain stroller designed to bridge the gap between urban errands and off-road adventures. Use the optional bassinet when your child is an infant, and remove it when they’re ready for a forward facing seat.

If you don’t want to watch the video, here is my cheat sheet:

THINGS I LOVED: 

  • 4 Air-Filled Tires and All Wheel Suspension makes it really nice to push almost anywhere
  • Large easy-access storage basket that will fit a ton of crap.
  •  Includes the separate bassinet for your newborn
  • Oversized canopy with magnet closure peek-a-boo window has a pocket and can zip-off to  increase air flow. The canopy can also be used on the bassinet
  • Fabric is made up of 50% recycled PET (14 plastic bottles) and 50% bamboo charcoal fiber to wick away moisture, regulate temperature and inhibit bacterial growth. 
  •  Auto locks and has a standing fold
  •  3 year warranty and these guys have really good Customer Care.
  • It weighs 22lbs which is pretty light for this kind of stroller – the Vista weighs 27lbs and the City Select  weighs 28lbs.
  •  Can be used from birth (even the stroller portion reclines all the way back) to 55lbs.
  • Car Seat Adapter included – compatible with: Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 32, Graco Click Connect 40, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35, Chicco Keyfit 30, Britax Chaperone (optional Maxi Cosi /Cybex Car Seat Adapter can be purchased separately)

 

THINGS TO CONSIDER:

  • It isn’t the cheapest stroller out there at $600 but compared to other quality brands like Bugaboo, Orbit and UPPA, you get a LOT of bang for your buck
  • The stroller itself doesn’t have a parent facing option. This wouldn’t have bothered me but it seems to be a hot feature right now.
  • It doesn’t convert to a double stroller
  • I found the fold pretty good – folded it is 29″ x 24.5″ x 15″ if you need to measure your trunk

You can find out more or purchase the indie 4 on the bumbleride site.

  • PS-I have to second the Customer Care. they are amazing. They have personally responded to my email inquiries within hours.

  • I’ll weigh in that I LOVE my bumble ride. We have the three wheel–partly for snow in NYC, light jogging, and occasional trail walks, but myother reasons for buying this were:
    -price point compared to comparable strollers
    -adjustable handle for my tall husband
    -foldability (I am not coordinated) and weight (actually lighter than some competitors)
    -the bassinet option
    -other features that came with like cup holder that are a la carte (and more $!) for other brands

    Plus, the colors are so nice…

  • Great review and video Amy!! Love that you have the unfold down pat!

    Do you think most people choosing between 3 vs. 4 wheel base it on stability, jogging, preference or a combo depending on the family?

    Thank you for sharing Indie 4 with your readers!!

    P.S. Thanks for sharing that fold video with Ace as well! Ace we hope you join the Bumbleride Family!

    • I think it all comes down to personal preference.

      The single wheel in the front is great for jogging but can also be really great in the snow and on rough terrain. I love the four wheel for the ‘curb pop’ stability but I was hopping more curbs than trekking through rough spots so I’m a little biased!
