Bumbleride Era vs. Indie Stroller Comparison

Bumbleride Era Stroller

Hi, I’m Amy, owner of Strolleria and in this video we’ll compare the Bumbleride Era and Bumbleride Indie. Both strollers are available at Strolleria.com. If you have questions, email us at customercare@Strolleria.com or leave a comment below.

If you’re looking for a stroller to tackle the challenges of both rough terrain and everyday life the Bumbleride Indie and bubble ride Era are top choices. The Indie is a three-wheel jogging stroller that’s popular even among non-runners. It has durable air-filled tires, but because they’re smaller and less bulky than those on most jogging strollers, the Indie is easier to get into the car and around town.

The Era Bumble rides, first four wheeled stroller, maybe even more convenient for families who want to walk on a trail today and the mall tomorrow. The Era still has air filled tires, but it’s more compact and has a reversible seat that allows your child to face either direction. The Era cost $100 more than the indie because of its additional features like the reversible seat. The starting price for the Era is 649 well, the starting price for the Indie is 549.

The Era weighs 27 pounds or three pounds more than the Indie mainly because it has four wheels instead of three. The Era is five inches shorter, which makes it more compact for navigating tight spaces. The Era also helps accommodate taller kids because it has an extra three inches in the footrest and an extra two inches in the canopy. Although the Indie is two inches wider. Both strollers are about the same size when folded and you can use them from birth until your child is 55 pounds.

Both strollers have air-filled tires with all wheel suspension which absorb shock over rough terrain like gravel, dirt and snow. If you’re planning to run with your stroller, you’ll want to choose the Indie. The Indie has larger wheels than the Era and its three wheel design is optimal for maneuvErability while jogging. If you’re looking for a stroller for activities like hiking on trails or walking the beach, either stroller will be a great option.

A main advantage of the Era is that the seat is reversible, which allows you to keep a closer eye on your baby when they’re younger or when they’re asleep. On the Indie your child only paces forward. Both strollers are compatible with a car seat or a bassinet, but the Era is easier to use because the seat is removable. Both strollers have multiple recline positions and they reclined to a flat position for newborns or sleeping.

Both strollers fold in one piece and stand when they’re folded. To fold the Era, pull the levers behind the back rest and push the seat forward. Then pull the triggers on the frame and guide the handlebar down. To fold the Indie first lower the bumper bar so it doesn’t stick out from the seat. Then pull the triggers and guide the handlebar down. Both strollers lock automatically and have a carry handle that makes them easier to lift into the car.

The Era and Indie are compatible with sevEral car seat brands to create a travel system. For any brand, you’ll need to purchase adapters to connect to your car seat. On the Indie you’ll first have to remove the canopy. You can add the car seat or bassinet on top of the seat or you can also detach the seat fabric from the frame. On the Era, the stroller seat is a free standing piece instead of fabric, so it’s easier to remove the seat and replace it with a car seat. Both strollers are compatible with car seats from Nuna, Cybex, Maxi-Cosi, Clek, Chicco, Graco and Peg-Perego.

Bumblerides rollers are some of the most eco friendly on the planet. Both the Era and Indie are free of harmful chemicals and their fabrics are made with 100% recycled materials including 28 water bottles per stroller. The Era also has a handlebar made of cork instead of the rubber handlebar on the Indie. Cork is a more sustainable material, plus it’s naturally waterproof, antimicrobial and durable. Similar colors are available for both strollers, including maritime blue, matte black and dawn gray. The Indie comes in a few more colors like camp green and turbine wave.
