I’ve had this website long enough to be exposed to a lot of different types of strollers: I’ve seen trendy strollers. I’ve seen cute strollers. I’ve seen expensive strollers. I’ve seen fancy strollers. I’ve seen functional strollers. But I’ve never been inclined to describe a stroller as simple, clean and pretty. Until now.
Let me introduce the Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition: This stroller is the perfect mix of functionality and aesthetics, starting with the assembly itself. The stroller went from this:
To this fully assembled and folded stroller:
…In just 15 minutes! The assembly was as easy as unfolding the stroller, attaching the wheels, popping the canopy on and hooking on the carrying strap:
Haiden was so excited about the new stroller that he helped at every step!
What are the best features of the Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition?
Lightweight and Compact :: This stroller only weighs 13 pounds. And it folds into an ultra-thin bundle that’s only 15 inches at its tallest point. To make it even easier to manage, there’s a carrying strap so I can sling it over my shoulder or carry it by the side handle when it’s not in use.
**Don’t be fooled into thinking that the lightweight Bumbleride Flite isn’t intended for bigger kids. It is! This 13 pound stroller will hold your little one from newborn-size all the way up to 50 pounds!
Natural Fabric :: The Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition’s seat is made from a fabric that’s 50% bamboo. That means my little ones’ body temperatures are better regulated (no sweaty backs!) while the fabric naturally wicks away moisture. Plus, the exterior fabric is made from 50% recycled material. I love that Bumbleride is moving towards sustainable and recycled materials!
Infant Carseat Adapter :: I always thought that the trade-off for wrestling with a heavy stroller was the benefit of being able to safely snap an infant car seat into it. Not anymore! This 13 pound stroller comes with an an adapter bar that pops into the stroller frame. Once it’s in place, multiple brands of infant seats will fit into this stroller, making it even more portable and fuctional!
SPF 45 Sun Canopy :: Although we live in Minnesota, my fair-skinned toddlers need sunscreen almost all the time. Every Bumbleride Flite stroller has a canopy that actually offers a sun protection factor of 45! I love that the stroller gives me extra assurance that my kiddos heads are shielded from the sun’s harmful rays.
Appearance :: This is a pretty general area, but I don’t think I’ve seen a stroller as sophisticated as the Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition. I received the stroller in the Walnut brown fabric, and it’s difficult to describe exactly how simple and classic it looks. I don’t even think the photos do it justice!
The solid shade of brown is truly tasteful, and there aren’t any distracting patterns or pictures to draw away from the look. My own personal style isn’t flashy, and I’ve really never wanted any of our baby products to draw attention to me, either. This stroller’s look is modest and understated, which suits me perfectly!
While I think this is a fantastic stroller, there’s one feature I’d like to see improved in the Bumbleride Flite stroller:
Storage Basket :: The basket under this stroller is small. I have a big purse, and it doesn’t fit in there. I get, however, that this is technically an umbrella stroller, and it would take a miracle of design to create more storage space underneath the seat! It helps that there’s a nice zipper pocket on the back of the canopy. This is enough to hold my keys, phone and money when we go for walks, and it leaves the space underneath open for sweaters, water bottles and just a few other odds and ends.
Overall, I have to say that I absolutely love the new Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition, and Haiden sure likes it, too! Check out this video to learn more, and visit Bumbleride to view all of the features and optional accessories.
Buy It: The Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition is available in stores and online for an MSRP of $275. It can be purchased directly from Bumbleride’s online store for $269.99 + shipping. I also found it for $275 with free shipping at Albeebaby.

I love how the bumbleride is so plush compared to the other upscale umbrella strollers. The seat reclines, the fabric is nicer and the actual frame is modern and stylish. I had never heard of the bumbleride but i’m thinking it may be my new stroller. Thanks for introducing it to me!

This stroller is awesome. I love the spf 45 sun shade canopy, the ergonomic shoulder straps, and the adjustable foot rest. And the fact that it’s light weight stroller but more durable than the traditional umbrella stroller is icing on the cake.
Love the SPF 45 Sun shade, lightweight, and it is compact! Making it so easy for traveling.
I love the padded shoulder straps! And the spf 45 sunshade.
I love the SPF 45 sun canopy. A new UV lining inside Flite’s sun canopy reflects heat and adds SPF 45 protection keeping baby cool and protected.
I just love the storage with this stroller, our current stroller don’t have a place to store anything on it, the Bumbleride Flite Natural Edition is just wonderful, I also love that it is lightweight. Thank you so much for the chance to win this stroller. Someone is going to be very lucky to get it.

Like the lightest of the stroller. Also, the water resistance sport fabric, is helpful
for the times when baby may wet the stroller. The dual suspension is a bonus, too.
Looks like a high quality product too.

i really like the SPF 45 Sun Canopy, most umbrellas dont have a canopy so this feature is great!
Its good looks are a huge selling point, but I love that it offers a carseat adapter. Such a nice feature for a slim stroller.
i love how compact and lightweight it is…very sleek!
I love the weight and that it fits infant car seats!

I love the cup holder! Really…it is the little things. There are so many designer/expensive strollers out there that have omited this necessity! The colors, weight and suspension are nice, but the cup holder flips my lid!
I like how its both compact and light when it can hold an infant car seat. Some strollers are too heavy!
Kelly Turner says
