YSG Rating: (4.6 / 5)
Weight: 36 lbs
The Bumbleride Indie Twin is an all-terrain side-by-side double stroller for both newborn twins and toddlers. It is a great outdoors stroller with all-terrain wheels that lets you ride easily over any terrain. If you like to go on long hikes or long walks through parks and unpaved roads, then the Bumbleride Indie Twin is a nice double stroller for this purpose!
While the wheels are great for outdoor hikes and long walks, the stroller also has all the features that make it a great everyday stroller. It is car seat compatible and includes features like – a height adjustable handlebar, quick-self standing fold, and a multi-position recline.
Here is a quick review of all the features of the Bumbleride Indie Twin stroller:
Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller Features
Car Seat Compatible: The Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller is car seat compatible! You can easily attach up to two infant car seats aboard the stroller frame.
You can also attach car seats from multiple brands purchasing the car seat adapter. This allows you to easily attach car seats from top brands like Britax, Chicco, Graco and Evenflo. It is compatible with the popular Britax B-Safe, Graco SnugRide and the Chicco KeyFit car seats. If you already have one of these car seats, then it’s even better!
Note: both the car seat adapters and car seat are not included in the price, so you’d have to purchase them separately. This unfortunately bumps up the price for the stroller even further up.
Bassinet Stroller: Apart from being car seat compatible, the Bumbleride Indie twin is also bassinet compatible! You can attach up to two bassinets aboard the stroller frame. This gives you even more options/ways of riding the stroller!
Newborn Stroller: The Indie Twin seats can easily be adjusted to accommodate newborns! This allows you to use the stroller from the birth of your babies without needing any extra attachments.
In addition to the stroller seat, you have two more options to carry your newborn aboard the stroller – bassinets, car seats. You can easily attach either the bassinets or car seats to the stroller frame to carry up to two newborns!
These options allow you to use the same stroller from the birth of your babies till they are much older. Once your babies are older, you can switch back to the stroller seat.
Multi-Position Recline: In addition, the stroller seats are able to recline into multiple positions. Unlike most strollers that claim to have a full recline, the Indie Twin seats recline completely into a horizontal position that make them comfortable for even a newborn. This is great for your babies laying back to have a nice nap.
5-Point Harness: Lastly in terms of safety, the stroller seat has a 5-point harness system which helps to keep your baby safely strapped to the stroller seat. As babies tend to move around a lot while you’re not paying full attention, the harness helps to keep your babies safely strapped in.
Adjustable Footrest: In terms of comfort, the stroller seats also have adjustable footrests that give your babies some leg support while riding the stroller. This is also great for naps as it is more convenient to not have your kid’s feets dangling while they nap.
All-Terrain Wheels: in terms of wheels, the Indie Twin has all-terrain air filled wheels that lets you ride smoothly and easily over any terrain. It is great for rides in grassy-terrain parks, smooth sidewalks, and going over rough unpaved paths!
Note: the air pumps for the wheels are included in the stroller price.
All Wheel Suspension System and Lockable Swiveling Wheels: In terms of ease of maneuvering and giving a smooth ride, the Indie Twin is around the top compared to most double strollers! It has lockable swiveling front wheels that makes it easy to maneuver. And the shock-absorbing, all wheel suspension system helps to give you and your babies a smooth and bump-free ride.
The wheels for double strollers are always important as double strollers are bigger and require more effort to move around!
Adjustable Handlebar: The Bumbleride Indie Twin also has an adjustable handlebar that lets you adjust the handlebar to the height of the parent using the stroller. This makes it great for small and tall parents as it allows you to easily adjust the handlebar to fit the height of either parent! It also saves you the backache or shoulder pain from having to hunch over or push at an uncomfortable position.
Flip-Flop Friendly Foot Brakes: in terms of ease of use and safety, the stroller has flip-flop friendly foot brakes that allows you to quickly and easily apply the brakes on the stroller with a single toe tap when you need to.
Self-Standing Quick Fold: the stroller has a quick fold feature that lets you fold it up pretty quick and easily. This allows you to fold up the stroller quick and easy in one motion and into a self-standing position.
It also folds up quite compact compared to most double strollers. This makes it easier to carry in your car or store at home.
Compact Double Stroller: the Indie Twin is quite compact for a side-by-side double stroller. At just 29.5 inches wide, it can easily fit through most doors!
Storage Basket and Pockets In terms of storage, the stroller includes a large rear-accessible basket for storing your on-the-go items. You can carry your diapers, bottles, toys or snacks while on-the-go.
The stroller seats also have side pockets that provide room for your babies to hold their snacks or toys while riding aboard the stroller.
Extendable UPF45 Stroller Canopy: Another great part of the Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller is its large extendable canopy that provides your kid with enough cover. Its UPF45+ canopy helps to protect your babies against harmful UV rays.
Child’s Weight: The stroller weighs about 36 lbs and is able to carry up to 45 lbs of child weight each.
The weight is quite high at 36 lbs, but is not surprising for a double stroller. But with a carrying capacity of 45 lbs each you carry your babies from when they are newborns till they are older, up to 6 years old!
Bumbleride Indie Twin Reviews
Before making a buying decision, it is always nice to review the Pros and Cons before picking a stroller. Here is a short overview for you:
- Newborn Stroller: Stroller seats can be used directly for newborns
- Car seat and bassinet compatible
- Adjustable handlebar for all heights
- All terrains wheels and suspension system for smooth ride
- Pricey stroller!
- Quite heavy at 36 lbs
The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a pretty great alternative to a luxury style side-by-side double stroller for both newborns and toddlers! The above shows the main Pros of the stroller, and it includes most of the features you’d hope to have in your everyday stroller.
And in terms of Cons, there were barely any negative points to consider. The main Con is the price of the stroller – it is quite expensive compared to most double strollers. However, if you’re willing to invest in top features and great quality, then the Indie Twin is one of the best!
The other Con is the heavyweight of the Indie Twin at 36 lbs. Although the wheels are great and make it easy to maneuver, the weight could still be quite heavy for smaller parents to carry. So it’s more convenient if you have a car or a comfortable means of transport, that doesn’t require you to carry such a heavy stroller around with you!
Lastly, in terms of feedback and reviews from parents who also purchased and used the stroller, a lot of them had mostly nice things to say. Here is an overview of the likes and dislikes they mentioned:
There were barely any negative reviews to be found for the stroller. The only issues a very few parents pointed out were the size of the stroller, the bulky fold, and needing to pump the tires multiple times. Some parents found the stroller quite heavy to carry, and some found the fold to be a bit bulky and needing more car space to store. And lastly, some parents weren’t so fond of having to pump the stroller tires each time it went flat.
Apart from these points, the Indie Twin received quite a few positive points in terms of features, and ease of use.
