Britax B-Scene Review

B-Scene Ice-Skating!

 

 What is rarer than ice-skating outdoors in 85 degrees?

  

 A large seat, reversible 3-wheeler! And last week-end, we had the pleasure of experiencing both.

 

    The B-Scene is the latest stroller offering from Britax. It has the exact same comfy seat as the B-Ready. SP 2.0 loves the napper bar, and the extended legrest.

 

 But it sits on a 3-wheeler chassis, in case you prefer that look. The single front wheel is also larger than the two swivel wheels on the B-Ready. And you can lock it, for going down curbs, or for going through a rough spot.

 

 That means you will be able to better navigate rougher terrain, snow, or, er, ice.

 

  The B-Scene has a huge, very easy to access basket. Plenty of room for shoes, and unneeded in the heat jackets, hats, scarves, and gloves. There are two pockets at the front of the basket, for still needed bottles of water, or hot chocolate, if we weren't all sweating to death.

I love the brakes. You just step down lightly on the green button on the right, for "go", get it? Then the button turns red, for "Stop", and the brake is engaged.

  The canopy has a sun visor in front, and the popular netting in the rear, for air flow. The flap has magnetic closures, which is another practical feature. So easy to use.

And there are bottle pockets on both sides of the canopy. The handle is height adjustable, with a variance of 13"!

 

 Everything about the B-Scene is easy. You can adjust the harness by unzipping the back pocket, and squeezing a round button. This allows the straps in front to slide up, or down. Ingenious! It must be patented, or everyone would be using this system. 

 

There are also two pockets on the seat back, by the way. Nice for a phone, glasses, wallet, or keys.

The seat sits up nice and high, for a better view of all the action. Don't try this at home! For demo purposes only.

 

  Another rarity on the B-Scene is that you can fold it with seat facing in either direction. And all you do is pull up the side levers, and it collapses right down. Here, from the "2011 BIG Stroller Roll-Out", is Jon McGuire demonstrating. Notice how easy the seat pops off, too.

And see how he spins it around and round. Reminds me of a figure 8, haha.

 

 

The B-Scene can't take an add-on seat like the B-Ready. But it is smaller, too. Here is a SBS comparison of the two, again, from the "2011 BIG Stroller Roll-Out!"

Since they are similar, the two models share the same accessories--bassinet, foot muff, mosquito net, cupholders, and car seat adapter. The B-Scene comes in red, or black.

Love it! Reminds me of my first, the Kolcraft Contours 3 Wheeler - just more thought out and better quality!

About this topic

Wiki

The Britax B-Scene can be used from birth with an infant car seat or the Britax Bassinet (sold separately). The removable seat can be used forward or rear facing up to 25 kilograms (55 pounds). The B-SCENE’s three-wheel design and adjustable top handle offer parents improved maneuverability, while its full suspension produces a smoother, more comfortable ride for the child.

To further ease a parent’s routine, the B-SCENE features an automatic chassis lock that locks the frame in a folded position and an adjustable, no re-thread five-point harness system . The stroller also boasts lightweight expanded rubber tires so no inflation is required, and a one-foot anti-scuff linked rear brake with red and green indicators.
