Weight

Excellent – 9/10

The Britax B-Agile Stroller is easily one of the lightest standard stroller out there. At 18 lbs, it performs decently on par with the more expensive strollers and definitely does not fall short on the quality of its features. Its light weight makes the stroller a good option for daily usage. 

Brakes

Very Good – 8/10

The brakes on the Britax B-Agile Stroller is a unique one. There is one foot brake located on one of its wheels and you can lock both rear wheels just by stepping on it. You will not need to worry about the hassle of pressing two separate brakes on each rear wheels and the brake is sandal friendly as well. 

Compact

Excellent – 9/10

The Britax B-Agile Stroller is very compact for a standard stroller. When folded, it is only 29 inches long, 23 inches wide, and 11 inches tall. A compact stroller makes for a good everyday stroller and it definitely has what it takes to compete with umbrella strollers in the weight any compactness category.

“Best stroller ever! I got this a little later when my son was 19 months and I am so happy with it. It is light weight, great control, enough storage and really is a nice design.”

Ease of Use

Very Good – 8/10

Ease of use is extremely important as it affects you daily experience with the stroller. This stroller is the perfect example for a stroller that is extremely easy to use. The Britax B-Agile Stroller can be easily folded with one hand, features a large storage basket and a large canopy with convenient pockets to put small items such as wallets and snacks. 

Folding

Excellent – 9/10

Parents have been very happy with how easy it is to fold this stroller. The folding mechanism of the Britax B-Agile Stroller is one-hand operated by pulling on a pull loop on the child seat. The brand is very smart in ensuring the safety of the child (of accidental folding when the child tugs on the loop) by designing a safety release button on the handlebar. While unfolding is also simple, it requires two hands to execute.

Grip

Very Good – 7/10

The Britax B-Agile Stroller has a decent grip. This can be attributed from the foam covered handlebar. The handlebar is not adjustable but sits at a medium-level height, suitable for almost any parent. It is located 42 inches from the ground.

Maneuverability

Very Good – 7/10

The stroller scores fairly decently on maneuverability with a dual fron wheel design. The three wheel design of the stroller makes the Britax B-Agile Stroller agile in navigating tight spaces, and can be pushed around with one hand with ease.

“This stroller is for my third child so we have some good experience with strollers. The closing and opening functions are easy to use. The wheels are very easy to navigate with. Highly recommended!”

Rough Terrain

Very Good – 8/10

The Britax B-Agile Stroller performs decently on rough terrains. Not only do its fully suspended wheels able to absorb shock from uneven terrain, its wheels are wider than normal which mean a smoother ride for both the child and you.

Accessories

Good – 6/10

The stroller unfortunately does not include much accessories, but there is an array of pretty decent add ons you can purchase separately. These include a parent console organiser that features 2 cup holders and a storage compartment, a rain cover that keeps your child dry and cozy without blocking their vision, a sun and bug cover that offers full protection from the elements, and a child tray that has a snack section and a cup holder. The stroller is also compatible with infant car seats from notable brands – car seat adapter sold separately.

Easy to Assemble

Excellent – 9/10

The stroller is very easy to put together – it takes only 6 minutes from unpacking to fully assembled to ready to roll. Assembling the Britax B-Agile Stroller does not require any tools, and the instruction manual is easy to follow. 

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 8/10

The Britax B-Agile Stroller can be cleaned effortlessly. It can be easily cleaned by spot treating with a wet cloth and a little bit of soap. 

“We have used this stroller for more than two months now and we do like it. It’s easy to fold and to unfold, the canopy is very large so it protects well against sun, and also easy access to the bottom storage is great. Yet since I am very tall I do wish the push bar would be adjustable and some things like straps do seem cheaply made. But overall its great. I do like it.”

Storage

Very Good – 8/10

Storage options in the Britax B-Agile Stroller is accessible and abundant. Its storage basket located beneath the child seat is large and can even be accessed when the seat is fully reclined. There are 2 convenient pockets on the back of the canopy, but it is worth noting that they do not close completely and larger items could fall out.

Very Good – 8/10

The Britax B-Agile Stroller has huge canopy that offers reliable protection against the sun. It has a large mesh window in the back that provides good ventilation for the child, and you can easily check up on how your child is doing.

Suspension

Very Good – 7/10

The suspension of the Britax B-Agile Stroller is decent to provide a smooth ride for your child. Its fully suspended wheels can handle small bumps and lumps but it may not provide the best suspension when the terrain gets awfully rough.

“The B-Agile 3 is easy to push and turn, navigates tights spaces with ease and is so lightweight it can do double duty as your travel stroller fitting in places other full-size strollers can’t go. This stroller is one we would recommend to a friend.” – Baby Gear Lab

“B-Agile is a VERY stable stroller (especially for being so light) that’s not going to flip over if you hang a bag of the handle bar. It has great features like huge canopy, roomy seat, and large mesh window in the back.” – Moms Stroller Reviews
