Britax B-Agile Lightweight Stroller Review

YSG Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars (4.9 / 5)

Weight: 18 lbs

B-Agile is designed for parents on the go who take their child with them whilst running. While it’s not an all-terrain stroller, it can handle some of the terrain if you take it off road. The rubber wheels will have no problem tackling mulch, grass and gravel, while all-wheel suspension will absorb some of the bumps providing your child with a smooth ride. This is a truly one-handed stroller that is very easy to push and navigate especially on the flat surfaces.

B-Agile is a super stable stroller that would definitely not 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. The seat has very deep recline that can accommodate a newborn. This stroller can be used from birth and up to 55 lbs. You can easily convert it into a travel system by using included car seat adapter. B-Agile can be purchased for around $220 dollars on Amazon.

This stroller boosts a lightweight aluminum frame of 20 lbs, all wheel suspension, cool flow mesh fabric, quick one-handed fold, reclining seat, large ventilated canopy, and large storage area. Like its predecessor, the B-Lively also can accommodate up to 55 lbs.  This stroller also comes with adaptors for use with Britax infant car seats. The infant seat is easy to place into the stroller with the Click and Go Adaptor.

Britax B-Agile Stroller Features

Lightweight & Maneuverable

The B-Agile 3 won’t weigh you down thanks to its lightweight aluminum frame. Designed with multi-tasking parents in mind, the quick-fold design allows you to close the stroller in seconds with just one hand.

Extremely Maneuverable

The 3-wheel configuration with swivel front wheels is one reason this stroller is a customer favorite. This feature provide an ultra-small turning radius so you easily glide through crowds, thin aisles and other tight spaces.

Travel-System Ready

Combine the maneuverable B-Agile 3 with any Britax infant car seat and you get the perfect travel system from the #1 brand in safety technology. The Click & Go System allows for a quick and secure connection – with a set of complimentary adapters packaged with the stroller. The stroller is also compatible with other major infant car seat brands with the use of accessory adapters (sold separately).

Wheels and Suspension

This is a three-wheeled stroller (even though the front wheel is like 2 wheels sandwiched together around a swivel). The wheels themselves are made of a thicker, almost foam-like plastic. Depending on where you stroll, they’ll last a decently long time. Gravel tends to pit them and really wear them out more quickly. As for the suspension, it’s amazing! It has so much give on the wheels that it actually reminds me of the suspension on our mountain bikes. It’s that good.

All-wheel suspension system

The stroller has an all-wheel suspension system. It makes the ride so much smoother for a child. While it is not an all-terrain stroller, the suspension will help to absorb some of the bumps if you decided to take it off the road.

Flip-flop friendly brake

The stroller has a flip-flop friendly brake. It has one pedal brake located on the right wheel. You can lock both rear wheels just by stepping on it.

Steering

I love three-wheeled strollers because they turn so easy. You don’t have to do a 5 point turn to turn around. Just swivel and go! It has a really, really tight turning radius. The back wheels are larger and set further apart, which helps with steering. It doesn’t quite help with the size of the stroller, since it makes it wider, but it makes it less tippable. Since it holds a child up to 55 pounds, the wheels need to be a bit wider to support the weight. (Side note: that’s a really high weight limit for a stroller! Yay toddler rides!)  If you are just going for a walk on a straight road, you can lock that front wheel to make the ride more stable and smooth.

Braking

This stroller has a linked braking system. That means that you can just activate one brake and both back wheels will lock. This is so convenient! I love being able to stop the whole stroller with just one little toe tap. And once braked, it’s not going anywhere unless an NFL linebacker shoves it. Another bonus of having linked back brakes is that there’s no bar in between the back wheels. That gives you more walking clearance since you don’t have to worry about kicking a bar.

Folding

B-Agile has that easy one-hand fold parents want. You can hold a child in one hand and fold the stroller with the other. I like the fact that you don’t need to bend down to fold it. First, push the safety button located on the side of the stroller to unlock the folding mechanism. Next, pull the strap located in the middle of the seat and the stroller will fold. The automatic lock will insure the stroller will stay folded. And the weight is ONLY 16.5 lbs. Once folded, there’s a little clip that locks it into place. You can fit this folded stroller into almost any trunk since the fold is so compact. Again, those wide back wheels make it a bit bulkier than some other options, but it’s overall pretty scrawny when folded. For reference, the folded dimensions are 29 in L x 23 in W x 11 in H.

Storage

The lower storage basket that’s underneath the seat it fantastic. It’s huge and it goes low to the ground, so you have a lot of clearance to put stuff in. The mesh material is kind of stretchy, so you can push the storage limits if you have to. And you will have to, since that’s the only storage to really speak of. There’s a zippered pocket on the back of the seat. You can fit your phone, wallet, and maybe a snack or small plastic water bottle in there. But that’s it. No parent drink holders or organizers of any kind. You can purchase one separately from Britax, but at this price point, I don’t like the idea of added cost to get a pretty standard feature.

Harness and Buckles

I know that this is technically a feature for the kids. But since parents are the ones doing the buckling, I want to talk about it here. I really want to like the 5 point safety harness. It’s has nice shoulder/neck pads for comfort and it has reflective straps for safety. But those buckles! They have to be stacked to be buckled (i.e. you have to put the side strap buckle through the chest strap buckle and then click the stacked buckles into the bottom buckle. And the push button release is handy for parents, but toddlers figure out that big button real quick and then you have an escapee on your hands.

A huge canopy 

This canopy is really wide and tall and features a peek-a-boo window. The window is made from mesh for added ventilation. The canopy is also UV 50+ for sun protection.

It has three panels with large peekaboo window. The peekaboo window is made out of black mesh that provides some shade while allowing for the air to get in. The closure is noisy Velcro that I don’t like (I wish it was magnetic)

Reclinable seat

Britax calls it infinite recline, which is a just a really dramatic and romantic way of saying that you can lay the seat all the way back. The seat is held up with an adjustable nylon strap on each side, so you can adjust it to anywhere you want, from flat to fully upright.

Handle bar

It has one handle bar, so you can talk on the phone and push the stroller at the same time (I call it cell phone friendly handle bar). Although it is non-adjustable, it is conveniently positioned in the middle 40″ from the ground to accommodate taller and shorter parents. Of course it would be nice to have an adjustable handle bar.

Roomy seat

It is 13.5″ wide and 25″ from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. This is a huge seat. Even your 4 year old will fit in it (not like they need to be in the stroller at four). The stroller can be used from birth and up to 55 lbs. It has a nice infant headrest that will provide extra support for your newborn. The infinite strap recline offers many positions to choose from. You need only one hand to recline it, but two hands to bring it back up. The recline is nearly flat and can be use for the newborn (I would recommend waiting at LEAST for 3 months before putting your baby into the stroller). The seat is not very upright. I know some kids like my baby Sophia LOVE to sit very upright.

5 Point Harness

It is a padded adjustable 5 point harness. The buckle requires a lot of pressure so your 4-year old wouldn’t be able to unlock it. Pad that protects the belly from the buckle is conveniently sewn right to the seat.

Large Pocket

If you recline the seat, you will see a large zipper pocket in the back of the canopy. It is great for small items.

Tall leg Rest 

Although it is not adjustable, it is very comfy. The leg drop is 10″ tall which is great for older kids.

Pros
  • Great wheels and maneuverability.
  • Linked parking brakes/.
  • One-handed, compact fold.
  • Large canopy.
  • Reclinable seat and 5 point safety harness
Cons
  • No storage on handles for parents.
  • No storage or snack tray for kids.
  • Buckles can be a pain.
  • No footrest.  
  • Be aware that many parents have complained that the stroller adapters and other small plastic pieces can break down over time and become frail. Some parents complain that these parts have even broken on them.

Conclusion – Britax B-Agile Stroller

I can say the stroller is an awesome basic stroller. It maneuvers so smootly. The fold is fast and easy and compact. It has a wonderful canopy and recline for your kiddo. Although there’s s serious lack of storage, and this stroller is certainly pricey, it’s still gets an A from me. My favorite thing about this stroller is the ability to be a travel system. If you need a stroller that you can turn into a travel system, then this is a RIDE OR DIE. It makes a super lightweight travel system when combined with a Britax car seat. Once you graduate from the travel system, you’ll have a reliable stroller that you like and you’re used to.

And that’s it for a full Britax B-Agile Stroller review! It tells you all you need to know about the stroller – including its Pros and Cons. I hope it has provided you with enough information to help you make your purchase decision.
