New and Lightweight!: The 2010 Bumbleride Flite

We’re becoming giant fans of Bumbleride, the California based stroller maker here at Mogul Baby. Their latest offering is the super lightweight 2010 Flite umbrella stroller which weighs in at only 13lbs. I gleefully opened the box and quickly assembled the stroller. It took around 5 minutes to plug together and then it was ready to go.

The first thing I noticed was the resemblance to the other and larger strollers in Bumbleride’s 2010 lineup. The brand new Flite is the smallest stroller in Bumbleride’s range but boy is it perfectly formed. I love the features that the Flite has inherited from it’s larger siblings. These include the infinitely adjustable reclining back rest and the adjustable sun canopy with viewing window. Also, the five point harness will keep your child securely fastened to the seat! The Flite has been generously designed to accommodate children of up to 50lbs and it also comes complete with a car seat adapter bar for infants. Each wheel set has suspension to ensure a smooth and bump free ride along hard surfaces and the rear wheels each have their own independent foot brakes. Underneath the seat, there is a handy net to carry bits and pieces on those strolls to the store.

The only thing I can think of that did not get passed down to the Flite is that the push handles are not adjustable. The stroller is very light though, so this didn’t seem to be a problem for me out and about on the sidewalks with baby in tow. When you’re ready to fold away the Flite, they could not have made it any easier. A quick tug on the handle bar catches and a boot to the kick plate and the stroller folds up neatly and compactly. It cleverly locks firmly into place for safe transportation and an inbuilt carry strap makes handling easy. A cup holder, a shoulder strap and a rain cover are all standard accessories with the Flite.

Strollers have come a long way from what I was pushed around in and there seems to be much more ergonomically based design these days. One of the available optional accessories is the infant carrycot. The carrycot has been cleverly designed to be a modular component compatible with the whole stroller range. I installed the optional cot to the stroller to check it out and was impressed with the way it snapped onto the Flite’s sturdy aluminum frame.

Other accessories are available including color matching snack packs, jam packs and a foot muff (our review of this is coming out soon!). The Flite comes in 5 happy colors and the dark Lava style is shown here. This does seem to be a well made and a quality product. I’m confident you’d be happy with your purchase if you did decide to make the Flite your “stroller leap of faith.”

Price for the 2010 Flite is $249.99. Buy one at the Bumbleride online store.
