Very Good – 7/10

The Bumbleride Indie Twin is made up of high quality fabric that stretches over a sturdy frame.

Weight

Good – 5/10

The Indie Twin weighs 46 pounds, making it one of the heaviest double strollers out there. This is attributed to the fact that this stroller is quite bulky, taking up a lot of space in vehicles and on the sidewalk.

Brakes

Very Good – 7/10

The parking brakes on this stroller are very reliable. They are easy to engage and disengage, and they can be applied with full force.

Compact

Good – 6/10

This stroller is 30 inches wide. It is quite bulky and its folded size isn’t the smallest size, but it is still able to fit into any doorway. It will also fit comfortably in your trunk!

” I started by pulling apart the seats to wash them, cleaning the frame and greasing the wheels hubs, during my inspection I discovered that this simple looking stroller is highly engineered and an extremely well built device.”

Ease of Use

Very Good – 8/10

This Indie model makes life easy, even for parents with two very demanding children! It takes no effort to push this stroller around, even though it weighs more than most double strollers. Additionally, it is very easy to store and access stored items while you are on-the-go.

Folding

Very Good – 7/10

The folding process for this stroller is a simple, multi-step process that you can complete using one hand after some practice. However, the bulkiness of this stroller makes this task hard to do in just a few seconds. Additionally, this stroller does not stand on its own when folded.

Grip

Good – 6/10

These handlebars can be hard to grasp on rougher terrain, but they are set at a comfortable angle and height to suit parents of all statures and sizes.

Maneuverability

Very Good – 8/10

The Bumbleride Indie Twin received an 8 out of 10 in this category due to the ability of its front wheels to lock, unlock, and swivel when needed. It may be difficult at times to make sharp turns with this stroller in crowded areas due to its large size, but these wheels make it possible!

“The attention to detail, as far as functionality and design is incredible. Although it is wider, it pushes so much more smooth, and can go up and off of curbs with ease. Glides with little effort. The kids also love it! Overall we are so happy to have made the investment. Our favorite stroller yet!”

Rough Terrain

Very Good – 7/10

This stroller is ready for rough terrain. With its large wheels and lock/unlock front tire feature, you will be able to off-road with the Indie twin. You can even jog with this stroller due to its high-tread wheels and parent strap that you can hold while you jog!

Accessories

Excellent – 9/10

There is not much missing in the way of accessories when it comes to this stroller. It already comes equipped with two bumper bars that are easily attached and detached to the stroller.

Easy to Assemble

Very Good – 8/10

It will take little-to-no time for you to assemble this stroller if the instructions are followed clearly!

Easy to Clean

Excellent – 9/10

Everything on this stroller can be wiped down easily on-the-spot or removed from the stroller and washed separately. An example of this is the machine-washable bumper bars that are removed and washed with ease.

“While we loved the earlier version, our new Indie Twin takes it and makes it even better — if that’s possible. My husband is a cyclist and loved the new tires on this model, saying they were much easier to pump. I love the new basket below, which accommodates a TON of stuff — diaper bags, coats, you name it. We don’t use it for long runs, but for a short jog around the neighborhood, it works beautifully. We adore the new shades, which pull down to shade any babe’s viewpoint.”

Storage

Excellent – 9/10

Storage is located in multiple places on this stroller, providing adequate space for your belongings. There is a large pocket located on the back of each seat for all your diapers and wipes, and there is a little back pocket and more pockets on the side of each chair for more convenience!

Child Comfort

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller earned a 8 out of 10 in this category due to its plush, cushioned seats and adjustable recline. Also, its 5 point harness system has a quick release mechanism, preventing any pinching of your child. It has 2 covers (one for above, one for below) that prevent the irritation of your child.

Sun Canopy

Excellent – 9/10

The canopy on this stroller is almost perfect! It has built in 45 SPF protection from the sun and are very long and large, enabling them to cover both children comfortably. Also, an additional pop out offers extra sun protection for any passengers. A peekaboo window is also available on the canopy so that you can see your child while you are pushing him/her!

Suspension

There is no suspension system for this stroller.


What do experts say?

“I’m pretty sure that I can leave the house for the day because this stroller has storage galore. Take a look at all these different storage options. We have storage in the little back pocket. Sure, these are little pockets, but they will hold the tons of pacifiers or the keys to your house and you’ll find them easy. Next we have two huge storage pockets on the back of each seat that’s plenty, plenty, plenty of room to hold diapers, wipes, and whatever else you need.” – Twiniversity

“The Bumbleride was designed by stylish young professionals with a nod to hipsterdom, hence the name, and as a result, offers various nods to ecological and stylistic sensibilities. For example, it’s completely made from polyester, with 50% of the interior polyester made from rayon created from bamboo and 50% of the exterior polyester made from recycled plastic bottles. It’s a slick-looking stroller that comes in a range of gorgeous colors and comes from a company with a commitment to quality over quality. And it comes in so many colors you’re guaranteed to find one that works well with your sense of chic.” – The Car Crash Detective
